Product Description: During the past two decades, women have turned to hormone therapy in an effort to address their hormone-related health concerns. Hormones have been prescribed as a blanket treatment for menopausal symptoms, as well as many sexual and reproductive problems. Recently, however, studies have called into question the safety of hormone therapy. Women have responded to the recent evidence: For the first time in years, the number of women taking hormone replacement therapy has declined dramatically.
Today, women are looking for ways to address underlying issues rather than simply mask their symptoms. We are waking up to the fact that artificial hormones suppress the body's natural cycle. They do nothing to address the cause of many of women's symptoms - hormone imbalance. Creating and Maintaining Balance: A Woman's Guide to Safe, Natural Hormone Health will help you understand what creates imbalance. You will learn safe ways to restore balance, prevent disease, and increase your overall quality of life.
This book will provide you with an understanding of safe and natural solutions you can use to restore your body's natural balance. Feel empowered as you learn simple lifestyle improvements to correct the hormone imbalance at the root of your PMS, menopausal symptoms, breast fibroids, or whatever women's health issues you may be experiencing.
