    excellant reading and highly recommended

    WOW, this book made a lot of sense to most of my health problems, that doctors can't seem to figure out.........now my problem is to find a doctor who will listen to me, and write the compounding prescription .....it all really really made sense to me, and i could soooooo relate to all the stories and frustrations other women have gone thru. and it all boils down to replacing hormones. the book is a very interesting and easy read book, esp. if you have dealt with these frustrations.

    Control your hormones

    In this fascinating book, Dr. Platt with proven case studies brings awareness of a healthy alternative to a largely pill popping society. An internist for over 35 years, his purpose is to teach those searching for relief of many disabilitating disorders, that hormones control the body, in fact, every cell of the body. When the hormones are tested, usually through an easy saliva test, then put into balance, many find relief from their world of pain and disabilities. Arthritis, ADHD, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Menopause and Cancer are just a few mentioned but there are many more life altering ailments that balancing hormones would give the person a new lease on life. Dr. Platt is one of a select few that deal with the cause of an illness instead of the symptoms. Unfortunately most doctors are not educated in natural hormones. Most of their knowledge from medical school is learned based on research done by pharmaceutical companies. ¿Bio-identical hormones are hormone supplements whose biochemical structures are identical to those produced by the body¿, therefore minimizing potential risks. They are usually prepared from a natural base such as soy or yam and are FDA approved. The ultimate advantage is that the dosage is tailored to the individual¿s own hormonal requirement. The preferred method of delivery is creams, gels and suppositories, so they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Dr. Platt encourages the public to become pro-active in their own health and not to rely solely on the health system. Doctors will not change the current approach to care unless we, the patients demand better alternatives. He challenges our minds to think about the power of the current systems, relying on pharmaceutical and insurance companies. This book is brilliantly written and laid out so that anyone reading it can easily understand his well researched opinion. Michael E. Platt, M.D. is a board-certified internist based in California. He maintains a medical practice devoted to wellness and preventive medicine. He is nationally and internationally known and in my opinion we should all listen and learn form his opinions. Personally, I wish I lived close enough to be under his care. I not only highly recommend this book but will insist my family and friends read it!

    Information from the source about Bioidentical hormones

    Dr. Platt is the master doctor in this area. Women who want to know more about the ideas that you found in Suzanne Somers' book, please read this one, too. Dr. Pratt is the doctor who started it all. He is knowledgeable and writes clearly about this hormone replacement treatment. He explains everything that you need to consider before you go to him for consultation.
