Pre-menopause can be a difficult time. When I was experiencing it HRT (hormone replacement therapy) was still being "pushed" by doctors - to the extreme, I thought. This book convinced me I should avoid HRT, and I've never regretted the decision. Although Doctor Lee's contentions have since been vindicated regarding the use of estrogen, there is still valuable information in this book, which I recommend especially to the pre-menopausal woman. I recently (15 years into menopause) re-visited the book for some information as well. It's the book I have recommended most to my family, friends and acquaintances.

Lots of great information in this book but the dose of progesterone is, I've found,usually too much for most people. A real eye-opener when it comes to education about Fosamax!

Women considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause symptoms and health benefits should read this controversial, provocative book first. "Advertising and research dollars are spent trying to convince women that estrogen will cure everything from heart disease to Alzheimer's," writes John R. Lee, M.D., "but there is scant evidence for any of these claims and reams of evidence that synthetic estrogens are highly toxic and carcinogenic." Lee has studied the research and concludes that estrogen is not the magic bullet for protection against heart disease and osteoporosis, nor does it retard aging. Natural progesterone, instead, puts postmenopausal women's hormones in balance, says Lee. He cites study after study that indicates that natural progesterone, obtained in cream form, delivers what the usual HRT only promises.
"Menopause as a disease has been largely fabricated by physicians and the pharmaceutical industry," says this leader of a "quiet but powerful revolution" regarding HRT. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause covers the benefits of natural progesterone, the history and politics of the medical and drug establishment, the biochemistry and dynamics of hormones and how they get out of balance, and how to prevent hormone imbalance and stay healthy. Lee empowers you to ask hard questions of your doctor. Highly recommended. --Joan Price

I had a cluster of symptoms for which no doctor could help me (despite many lab tests). I read this book, then purchased natural progesterone. Wow! All my symptoms are disappearing bit-by-bit. Amazing stuff!
