Book Description

31 May 2002
A hormone specialist with more than 20 years of experience, Erika Schwartz subscribed to conventional methods of treating menopausal women - until she became one. When she realised that available treatment options were ineffective for her - and for millions of women - she started looking for an alternative. What she discovered are safe, effective and natural forms of hormone replacement, virtually free of side effects, that can be used to treat a myriad of problems in women of all ages, including acne, migraines, PMS, post-partum depression and fibroids, as well as the common symptoms of menopause. Now, in this revolutionary book, Dr. Schwartz shares her proven programme to help women prevent, reduce and even eliminate these symptoms of hormone imbalance naturally. Readers will also learn when and where to get natural hormones and why they can change women's lives for the better. The health benefits and risks of synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT) are hotly debated and woman are hungry for information on alternative treatments that are safe and effective. Dr. Schwartz offers this information in her book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the truth in language that I could understand 2 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
This is the only book I've read that really explains how losing your hormones in equal to getting old and that the only way to stay young is to fool Mother Nature and put back the hormones into your body. The difference here is that Dr. Schwartz is advocating natural hormones, not the synthetic variety most doctors prescribe which have horrible side-effects. The book also shows the connection between hormones and everyday symptons. It also gives you a balanced view of what alternative and conventional medicine offers. It's very easy to read and well worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars A Man and Wife's Perspective 3 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on
I originally purchased this book having my wife and her ever-changing moods in mind. After skimming through the index, I realized that hormone imbalance is not simply a problem for females, but also applied to my life as a middle-aged man. My wife and I both loved this well written book and found a simple and natural way to stay young (and bring back our sex life).
Thanks doc.

5.0 out of 5 stars hormones...BALANCED 12 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
I'm in my late twenties and deal with many of the symptoms described in this book already. I feel more comfortable with myself knowing I am not alone and knowing there is a solution. This book was informative, interesting, understandable and very well written. I have already begun my treatment and am seeing, more importantly feeling the results. It is truly remarkable! Thank you Dr. Schwartz.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book that I recommend for both sexes 11 May 2005
By Blaine Greenfield - Published on
What do acne, PMS, menstrual cramps, insomnia, migraines, mood swings, hot flashes, depression, weight gain, and loss of sex drive have in common? They're all symptoms of hormone imbalance that can affect women from adolescence through menopause, according

to Dr. Erika Schwartz in THE HORMONE SOLUTION--an excellent book that I recommend for both sexes.

I know it opened my eyes to many things; in particular, the fact that men can have many of these same symptoms . . . and actually go through something called andropause (or male menopause, if you want to think of it in those terms).

The good news is that that help is available; i.e., through the use of natural hormones derived from soy and yams . . . Dr. Schwartz stated prescribing these natural forms of estrogen and progesterone for herself and her patients, and the results have been nothing short

of amazing.

THE HORMONE SOLUTION takes a complex issue that has only recently been addressed by the medical community and addresses it in a simple, understandable book that could well be used as a guide for many readers and/or their loved ones . . . in addition, it is a work

that others may well want to discuss with their doctors.

There were several memorable passages; among them:

What I had not realized before was that all these hormone imbalances are connected and could be treated successfully with natural hormone supplementation. The more women of different ages and different symptoms came to see me, the more convinced I became of the continuum of hormone changes we are subjected to at all ages. Natural hormone treatment was invariably successful and had none of the side effects associated with other types of

medications. That was because natural hormones treated the root cause of the problems with substances closely resembling the missing or out-of-balance hormones our bodies make. There was no potentially harmful, synthetic substances in this hormone

supplementation program.

Unfortunately, the medical profession has not been keen on addressing this obvious similarity to female menopause. Most doctors are men, and menopause does not have a pretty ring to it--it's about aging. And men are more afraid than women to address the inevitability of this process. Men pride themselves on the ability to father children into their eighties, so how could they be having the same problems as again women? (The truth,

by the way, is that men who father children naturally in their eighties are as rare as women who give birth in their fifties.)

All scientists agree: Hormones are the common thread that makes up the fabric of our lives. They define us as men and women when we're young, they keep us healthy or make us

sick, and yet the understanding we have of them is vague, contradictory, and inconsistent. . . . Unequivocally, the scientific community knows that hormone levels change every minute of

the day, so why get hung up on one or two changes: menopause and puberty? A small step for science, a giant step for women. Once you make that connection, once you identify the

continuum of hormone changes, menopause is a lot less scary, and its devastation just another mountain to scale.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the book for me... 13 Jan 2014
By Holly K. Jacobs - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be one with a lot of information on 'natural' hormone solutions, but none of them helped me in my menopause. I had tried most of them prior to reading the cohosh, soy, etc. I finally had to see a MD for medication to be prescribed to help my estrogen imbalance.
The book would be good for a younger woman as a reference to the facts that we all HAVE hormones and the better they are in balance the better we feel. My getting it in menopause was pretty useless to me (also I am a RN, so I knew most of the information or had already researched it).
It was EZ to read, and plenty of information, just not the book I needed for my issues.
