This easy to read book explains in easy to understand language about the delicate balance of a woman's hormones. The book is not just about menopause, it's packed with information on many aspects of women's health. When I finished the book, I shouted out loud, 'Why didn't someone tell me about this before now?' Every woman should read and re-read this book. It has vital information for women's health. Information that I believe most doctors are unaware of. The use of Natural Progesterone cream has changed my life. Normal mentrual cycles, no more migraines, etc.... Amazing health benefits that my Doctors could not figure out. I have purchased over 30 copies of this book to share with family and friends. I even gave a copy to my doctor who is now recommending natural progesterone cream to some of his other patients. BUY THIS BOOK TODAY, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!

Finally, someone wrote a book about menopause thats not pushing drugs for a cure! I found this old used, well read book at a book trader, and decided to give it a try. So many doctors now days want to push medication, when there is no need for such dangerious pills. Yes go through menopause NATURALLY, like our mothers did. This book was well written and informative on the life-changing women will go through. Thank you Dr John R Lee for an HONEST approach to a natural women occurance that we all must go through.

I was on a Medical Leave of Absence from work because the mysterious symptoms had gotten unbearable. Although I am a medical lab scientist at a major medical center, my physicians are still quite clueless about the subject and never even diagnosed my premenopause. With time off to research my symptoms of extreme fatigue, aches, inability to concentrate, I came upon Dr. Lee's Book. A sympathetic friend gave me some natural progesterone cream. It was stunning that 6-8 hours! later I felt better than in the past few months. The next morning I awoke without the alarm clock. The book reviews everything I learned in college as a major in biology and chemistry and really tied it all together. Truly, the conventional highly educated medical establishment have forgotten the basic lessons. I am now a major advocate for natural progesterone to every woman with ears. I love my life. That is my wish for you.

Without question, Dr. Lee's books continue to be the definitive word in the field of natural progesterone. The women in his medical practice led him to investigate and, then, become a proponent of natural progesterone. He approaches it from a medical point of view, yet includes numerous actual patient cases to illustrate his belief in natural progesterone. Dr. Lee explores the theory of estrogen dominance and his experiences with how natural progesterone helped his patients. Although he beats the drum loudly in favor of natural progesterone, he also mentions any down-sides to this treatment. For authors such as myself who write about menopause (peri and post), Dr. Lee's books are a bountiful reference source. It's understandable, of course, that much of the information in this book is the same as in his book aimed at perimenopausal women. Whether you do or don't subscribe to his stance on natural progesterone, Dr. Lee's books are a worthwhile read. Be informed, ladies, about what's going on in your body!

This book is truly eye-opening! I have struggled with estrogen in every form -- pills, patches, creams, rings -- for ten years -- thinking I was doing something good for myself and making my Dr.'s happy. No more!! Please, ladies -- get this book!!!

This book clears up any questions you'll have about what to do once your periods cease, and is also a must read for those women who've already made the transition and want optons other than HRT. I'm no longer worried about making this decision, thanks to Dr. Lee & Ms. Hopkins! In fact, I've recently started my thrid cycle of progesterone cream, and I feel fantastic. I was having some of the typical pre-menopausal symptoms that I now know were a signal from my body that I was estrogen dominant and progesterone deficient. This book is a ture bless to those of us making this transition.

I struggled with depression my entire life - in addition to many other hormone/PMS related physical and emotional problems. Natural progesterone, as recommended by Dr. Lee, lifted my depression within one week. I now feel like I always imagined a 'normal' person would feel. I suspected that progesterone would help me because I felt wonderful during my second and third trimesters of pregnancies and during nursing (high natural progesterone times). I went to a reproductive endocrinologist who dashed my hopes and told me that progesterone would not help me (I think he was referring to synthetic progesterone studies). Thank God I found Dr. Lee's books.

This book has life changing and saving information for every woman. Dr Lee presents information that can no longer be overlooked by 'mainstream' medicine. For two years now, this information has changed the lives of many of my female patients and has changed the way I prescribe hormones. I continue to be pleased with the results of Natural Progesterone.

Do you suffer from PMS, osteorporosis, menopausal symptoms, hot flashes, etc? Are you concerned about breast cancer? Then read this book. Dr. Lee gives invaluable information on how to treat these symptoms, disorders and diseases. Buy one for yourself and then buy several for your friends and family!

Dr. Lee is so forthright in his information. I appreciate being given the opportunity to make an informed choice concerning my own hormonal health. Using the information in this book, a woman will be equipped to handle all the changes in her body that come with age. I was amazed by Dr. Lee's explanation of our bones, osteoporosis, and the potential for rebuilding bones with the use of progesterone. Ladies, don't miss this one. It will revolutionize the way you deal with so-called 'female' health problems. Blessings and good success to you.

I am so thankful to Lee and Hopkins for writing this book. It has been a life saver and a relationship saver! I think doctors should have to read his books and then they should hand them out to their patients that suffer from peri-menopause and menopause! So many questions answered and easy to read! Thanks Dr. Lee and Ms. Hopkins!!!!

I'm 25 y/o not menopause, but I've been suffering with HYPOTHYROID for over a year already. If you can't stop the hair loss ( you can stop it, just read the book), or you think smth wrong with your hormones, consider estrogen dominance first, then hypothyroidism. I'm so happy I read this book and feel so great, till the end of my days will i be thankful to the author. And now I can help my mam too. especially read p137 and p151.

I am almost finished with this book, and know that natural progesterone therapy is for me. Dr. John Lee explains in detail how to start feeling better. Having breast cancer almost 2 years ago, I want to try and protect myself as much as I can. Women, read as much as you can to educate yourself about your health. Then let your doctor know what you want, and what you think is best for you! Dr.Lee Thank you!!

The advertisement you have is very misleading. I ordered this ebook accidently, I wanted a paperback. But, you have a picture of a book, not a computer file. This is extremely misleading. It should clearly state on the ad 'This is an ebook, only downloadable through Acrobat'. Your add says available for download; it doesn't state that it is only downloadable. Also, since I do not like ebooks, I didn't know about the no return policy for ebooks since I did not read that section of the website. This policy should also be state on the add. 'This is an ebook and there is a no retun policy or This is an ebook and all ebook sales are final'
