With all the recent talk in the news about the dangers of synthetic hormones, women will rejoice over Erika Schwartz’s new book, The 30-Day Natural Hormone Plan: Look and Feel Young Again – Without Synthetic HRT. Schwartz, author of the hugely popular The Hormone Solution and an expert on women’s health and hormone treatment, offers women a powerful and effective thirty-day plan that revolves around nutrition, exercise, supplements and natural hormone replacement therapy.
The author believes that this plan, which she has proven works on many of her own patients, can help restore energy levels, improve well-being, and bring balance back to the bodies and lives of women who have been experiencing the trials and tribulations of out-of-whack hormones. As always, the plan begins with a thorough physical exam by a good health-care provider, but much of the rest of the plan can be done on your own, with the exception of getting a prescription for the natural hormones Schwartz has found to be highly beneficial.
The plan is laid out in detail, with every step explained so that it is easy to follow, and the solid research that leads up to the actual plan is backed up by plenty of the author’s own clinical studies, as well as research studies by top hormone specialists and endocrinologists. The natural hormone therapy centers on the usage of estradiol and micronized progesterone, which Schwartz has found to be helpful for a variety of problems plaguing women, especially those over forty who may be experiencing the onset of peri-menopause and pre-menopause. But this prescription-only therapy is only one part of the whole package that includes eating the right foods to compliment your hormone system, exercising, and taking the proper vitamins and minerals that work with the hormone system and not against it.
It is important, the author stresses, to find a great doctor that knows her/his stuff when it comes to hormone therapy, but this book provides you with plenty of knowledge so that you can better understand what your body needs, and communicate your desire to your doctor to try natural hormone therapy. The 30-Day Natural Hormone Plan does not require that you take HRT if you don’t need it, and the rest of the plan will indeed help tremendously on its own, but if you are one of the many women who are missing out on the quality of life that comes with balanced hormones, this book could just be the life-saver you’ve been looking for.
