Perimenopause, the five to fifteen years before menopause, is fraught with symptoms that are largely ignored, or worse, tolerated. You can’t avoid perimenopause or menopause, but you can avoid the suffering, loss of energy, and emotional ups and downs that accompany it. Whether you’re approaching menopause or locked in a battle with it, the war is over, and you have won. The Natural Hormone Makeover shows you how to correct perimenopause and menopause-related hormone imbalances safely by using natural or bioidentical hormones—many of which are available at the drugstore or health food store—instead of risky hormone replacement therapy. You’ll learn how to determine which of your hormones—including estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, Human Growth Hormone, progesterone, melatonin, and others—may be unbalanced and create a personalized program to rebalance these hormones with natural hormone supplements, creams, and hormone-stimulating foods. This unique anti-aging approach to menopause also includes a list of the foods that are the most powerful in healing the effects of hormone imbalance and keeping you young and healthy for decades to come.

You’ll learn everything you need to know about:

  • The seven different forms of estrogen and how their “personalities” affect you
  • Bioidentical hormones and why they are safer and more effective than hormone replacement therapy
  • The importance of the adrenal gland in improving symptoms and slowing the aging process
  • Cutting-edge discoveries concerning hormone metabolism and safety
  • How to alter the effects of lifestyle, environment, and genetics on hormone balance
  • Dietary supplements and changes that help make hormone use safe
  • Assembling a team of health professionals to ensure the safety and effectiveness of your hormone makeover

You’ll also discover why so many ancient Chinese herbal treatments are remarkably effective in relieving the symptoms of menopause. You’ll find out why these treatments help you to metabolize your body’s own hormones more completely and how they enhance the safety and effectiveness of natural and bioidentical hormone treatments.

If you’ve been confused about how and whether you can use hormones safely, don’t feel bad. Judging by the rash of false claims, misguided warnings, and faulty explanations in recent years, so are many of the so-called experts. The Natural Hormone Makeover gives you clear, authoritative, scientifically proven information you can trust. Read it and start to rediscover your inner glow today.
