Overview

The best-selling Estrogen Alternative explains the complex subject of hormone replacement therapy and is motivating today's women to reexamine traditional medical solutions to problems ranging from PMS to menopause. In this revised and enlarged edition, author Raquel Martin continues to pick up where most doctors leave off, providing additional information and examining recent findings on this quickly developing subject. Many of the physical discomforts that women face-from menstrual cramping to symptoms of menopause-may actually result from a deficiency of natural progesterone combined with estrogen dominance. More and more women are seeking nondrug alternatives to synthetic hormones and their unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects such as osteoporosis or cancer of the breast, cervix, or uterus. Fortunately, safe plant-based alternatives are now available. One of these, found in the roots of the wild yam, is nearly identical to the progesterone produced in our bodies and is thus easily absorbed. Botanical progesterone supplementation is useful in treating or preventing many conditions, including PMS, menstrual irregularity, infertility, depression, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and osteoporosis. It is also extremely effective in relieving or avoiding the discomforts of menopause. Martin sifts through the often confusing spate of studies on hormone replacement therapy and guides readers to the natural alternatives, and in this new edition she adds insight on conditions related to breast cancer, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis. Additions to the book address the therapeutic use of essential oils, methods for detecting hormone levels and bone density, and the myths of mammography. Martin offers advice on how to work with a physician to come up with a personalized approach and lists mail-order sources for botanical progesterone creams and supplements.

Provides information on how botanical progesterone therapy can provide relief of PMS, fibromyalgia, miscarriages, etc.

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Women's Network
This is an enlightening, easy-to-read book of vital interest to every woman. It assesses information not generally forthcoming from medical doctors and offers information that can help women decide how to manage the seriously important question of whether or not to take synthetic hormones. This book is a valuable tool if you are interested in maintaining your health naturally.
Nexus
The Estrogen Altenative, is a welcome addition to the now steadily growing body of literature on options that are low in side-effects and high in add-on benefits.
World Health News
Any woman who is considering synthetic hormone therapy or who wishes to get off of it owes herself the reading of this densely informative book. The simplicity and safety of the solution is almost shocking. One might ask why every suffering woman is not using botanical progesterone.
So Young!
If you are a woman and do not read this book, you are very possibly denying yourself the most important information of your physical life. . . . A powerfully persuasive, well-written, and extensively documented case for natural, nonprescription, yam-derived progesterone. . . . A must-read if you value your health.
