One of the most helpful guides ever regarding the premenopause condition. A gallant stride towards battling the aggravating hormonal demons that plague many women PRIOR to menopause. Helped me to put many issues such as depressive angst, moodiness, anxiety, sleeplessness and resultant fatigue to rest! Most enlightening and encouraging!

I really appreciated this book. It helped me to know that I am not crazy and other women have navigated these issues and survived. I only wish that more mainstream medical care professionals would read this book. I'd love to have a doctor like Dr. Lee but so many "natural" practitioners do not accept insurance and many times this is why patients don't seek them out. It is hard to justify paying for health insurance and natural health care too. Nevertheless, the book is a great read. It helps us to understand how the symptoms we experience can be resolved naturally and how our bodies function.

"I'm too young for menopause-so why do I feel like this?"
You could be experiencing unexplained weight gain...fatigue...mood swings...loss of libido...fibroids...tender or lumpy breasts...endometriosis...PMS...infertility...memory loss...migraines...very heavy or light periods...cold hands and feet...or a combination of these symptoms. You may have been told they're "nothing," or stress, or even menopause-and offered surgery, antidepressants, or prescription hormones.
But the startling truth is that you may be suffering from premenopause syndrome-and there are simple, safe solutions. When John Lee wrote the groundbreaking "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You about Menopause" younger women started asking if natural progesterone could help them, too. In this book Dr. Lee, now with a women's health expert Jesse Hanley, M.D., brings you a revolutionary nonprescription "Balance Program" to retore your gynecological health, engery, and sex drive-and even slow the aging process before menopause, and beyond.

This was an informative book. Very indepth but sometimes I wanted to scream TMI! I was getting a headache from reading this information. I felt as though the authors were trying to squeeze every bit of information they could into this book. I also found some contradictions. This book has since been updated with new informtaion.

I wish I would have found this book 10 years ago...reading it answered so many of my questions and gave me a peace about what was going on, just knowing that I could do something to remove or ease the symptoms I was experiencing. We do not have to suffer. This book helped me way more than the doctor had. "No...I am not going crazy, and what is happening to me is 'normal'...(considering our toxic environment)" Read this...it will help..and it will bring you an understanding you may not have had about what goes on inside your body. (And it isn't written like a medical book....even I could understand it.) If I could I would send a copy of this book to every woman I know!

I always pick up books that I think may be of interest to me, and possibly help me with issues I'm having.
Most of the time, they are too dull, too complex, or just plain non-helpful!
But this book made me feel like someone Does know what I'm going through! I earmarked so many pages, I knew I'd never be able to share this with PBS!
Choices- This book offers choices. Medication is not always the answer. Suggestions on things to try- things that don't include fruit and vegetables that I never heard of!

If you are between 30-50, and feel like something just isn't right, this book may be the one to give you some hope.
