    a must-read for women of all ages

    I was fortunate to find a doctor in my town who follows Dr. Reiss's protocol in treating women's health with preventive measures that include supplements, bioidentical hormones and a healthy life style. My doctor says I look like I'm in my 40's, I feel like 20-something, but I'm actually 67 years old! This book can get you started in that direction, too.
