As I lay in a complete pool of sweat covering my head, neck and back, I couldn't help but ask one question. Why? The breaking of my normal sleep pattern, a pattern that I've enjoyed for most of my life (for ALL of my life for that mattter!), just did NOT figure into what I pictured for myself and my husband nearing our 'middle' years. After hearing about this book, I immediately picked it up to read, hoping for an answer, a link to this 'persistent problem', maybe even A SOLUTION. I didn't expect much because I had already consulted the best MDs & gynecologists in the state. I was told these gems: 'lazy ovaries', 'you'll get over it', 'hey, it is just a passing thing' and the most common gem, 'you are just too young for menopause'! Desperate, alone, I sought the advice of any older woman I felt comfortable talking to and I received the same answer. 'oh, I just breezed through that' or 'I don't know if I had any symptoms or not'. Fabulous, THAT generation was really without access to knowledge and publications. Why am I finding this to be difficult for me too? After realizing that almost any magazine about women has had an article on the 'new' perimenopause, I decided to follow-up and re-read those articles more closely. It was then that I found Ann Louise. This book was my first purchase on the subject of PERIMENOPAUSE.....and it is my bible to the bodily changes all women go through, but do not talk to one another about! even today!! I immediately followed all of her suggestions, spent the money on MY OWN HEALTH, and can now say that I am symptom free and on a new road of life--the one I did picture! I enjoy freedom from very severe,constant& shocking symptoms. A.L. Gittleman hit my problem dead-on and lifted me straight up!!!! I go everywhere with her book. A great book to pass on to a younger girlfriend or daughter!

I would recommend choosing another book on Perimenopause. This particular book was great in telling you about the symptoms that you are experiencing but not at all helpful in helping you to understand why or what can be done. The book read like an edvertisement for all of the herbs and vitamins that could be purchased through a particular vendor. I was really disappointed as I am on a fixed income and could have purchased other books that would have been much more helpful.

Truly, it did! Horrible life stopping mood swings/anxiety attacks were stopped dead in their tracks. I really thought I was going crazy. Great advice on how to correct horomonal imbalances naturally, you DO NOT need to jump into prescription horomones.

I discovered some key supplements and lifestyle factors that made all the difference in my experience going thru the change. This is a very practical guide to fix each symptom that you may be going through. I highly recommend reading it.

I had my last baby at 36, tied my tubes and thought I'd be on the road to worry free sex the rest of my life. What my dr. failed to tell me was that in tying my tubes I would alter the natural balance in my body leading to lost sex drive, horrible PMS, fatigue and and a myriad of other problems. The good dr. meaning well thought I might be okay if I were on hormome replacement therapy (estrogen). Thankfully, never having been able to tolerate the pill, I chose not the use this option. Instead I headed to the nearest bookstore and purchased a copy of this wonderful book. I had heard several discussions about perimenopause but really did not know much about it. This book turned out to be a godsend! After 4 months of completely following Dr. Gittelman's advice, I am finally back to my normal self. Even better, I actually feel better than I have in many years! My skin is better, my energy levels are up and I won't even mention how grateful my husband is! Thing is- I'm not sure whether or not, I'm in perimenopause, but the basic advice on how to deal with PMS is absolutely worth every penny spent on the book. I have recommended this book to all the women in my family who are in their mid-thirties and older.
