Editor's Review:

In Natural Hormone Balance for Women, Beverly Hills obstetrician-gynecologist Uzzi Reiss makes it clear that he believes in hormone replacement therapy for women, but not the "chemicalized hormonal substitutes" usually prescribed. "I emphasize natural hormones that are precise replicas of your own hormones," he writes, which can increase energy and memory, decrease symptoms of menopause and PMS, improve skin and mood, and enhance sleep, sexuality, and well-being. But neither the widely used hormonal medications, such as estrogens derived from horse urine, nor the "natural" hormonal products derived from soy or yams replicate the hormones produced by a woman's body. Rather, he recommends a natural estrogen formula balanced with natural progesterone, both available through compounding pharmacies (with a doctor's prescription).

Dr. Reiss and talented cowriter Martin Zucker explain why, how, and when to use natural hormones. This is not a snappy, one-size-fits-all program--rather, you, with the involvement of your physician, learn how to analyze your needs and individualize your treatment for your own optimal hormonal balance. Reiss describes the benefits and uses of natural estrogen and progesterone, then discusses other natural hormones that might be helpful: testosterone, human growth hormone, DHEA, melatonin, and pregnenolone. This is a provocative book that's worth sharing with your doctor. --Joan Price

Reader Reviews:

Natural Hormone Balance for Women is one of the finest books ever written for women living with ovarian failure(menopause). It describes very clearly the benefits of replacing ovarian hormones with bio-identical hormones (exact replica's of what the body naturally produces), and the benefits to the body. Dr. Reiss' passion for creating a true ovarian hormone balance is apparent and he more than adequately justifies every point he makes. His knowledge and respect for appropriate healthcare for women is also clear. Unfortunately, he does not offer any advice on how to extend the functional life of the ovaries, only how to supplement after they have failed. Good explanation on hormones. But the Dr.s assumption that American women's imbalances are due to not having several children I find insulting. I think rather than menopause being easier for women who have had several pregnancies I think it more likely to be more related to diet and lifestyle. Nevertheless I was able to use his information on the several hormones (not just sexual hormones) and their interrelations to good use. If you are struggling to balance your hormones (and thus return to feeling normal) I would also recommend you read books on how hormones are produced in the adrenal glands such as "Adrenal Fatigue" by James L. Wilson.This book, this doctor, changed my life for the better. I've purchased 8 copies for my friends to read. It's easy reading. I actually visited this doctor and within two weeks almost all symptoms of menopause disappeared. This is a great alternative to synthetic hormones. Dr Reiss obviously LOVES women...I have read over 25 menopause books and this is the BEST. It is written for all women to understand with great patience and caring. He has separated the hormones and clearly explains what each does and the symptoms of their imbalance. He includes contacts to locate a Dr in your area to help with the tests you will need to find out what you will need...not a "one size fits all" approach, but a customized just-for-you regimen of health to truly grow old gracefully....without the hot flashes, weight gain, fuzzy thinking, and loss of interest in your romantic life.
I would also recommend T.S. Wiley's book "Sex, Lies, and Menopause" which explains why we are seeing so much female cancer and how to protect yourself and your daughters from the problems our generation is experiencing.
Women who breeze thru menopause have had low estrogen levels all their lives, so the absence is not much of a shock. If you are contemplating a hysterectomy and your Dr does not do saliva hormone testing and have BIOIDENTICAL hormones ready for you to take afterwards, FIND a Dr thru the Women's International Pharmacy. You will avoid all the symptoms that are joked about....they are NO JOKE. These BIOIDENTICAL hormones DO NOT CAUSE CANCER!!!!!! They cause good sleep, weight loss, and finding yourself again. Easy to follow and easy to understand all-you-ever-wanted-to-know regarding hormonal balance and treatment. A must read for every woman!
