The comprehensive work entitled "Outliving Your Ovaries: An Endocrinologist Weighs The Risks And Rewards Of Treating Menopause With Hormone Replacement Therapy" provides break-through, new menopause research explaining why pharmaceutical topical bioidentical hormones are safer than the most commonly used hormones. Dr. Marina Johnson gives poignant, clinical stories from her 29 years of clinical experience during which she has managed over 100,000 female patient visits. These stories depict the tragic consequences of estrogen deficiency and the joy of transformation that occurs when a woman is made whole again. This book will give a woman a guidebook that helps her evaluate the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in clear, easy-to-understand terms so she can better work with her own physician to determine what's right for her.


"Finally-a clear concise prescription for women as they navigate the challenges of menopause. Debunking misconceptions, Dr. Johnson provides a roadmap for health and vitality in what can be truly golden years."

"Dr. Marina Johnson has been the personal physician for my wife, Susan and myself for the last nine years. I am 61 years old and Susan is 62. During this time, Dr. Johnson has provided us with a level of health care that can only be characterized as extraordinary. She takes the time to listen and explain and she does this in a manner that is clear and concise. She has tailored a health management program personalized for our individual needs and as a result, Susan and I are very healthy and vigorous for our age.

I graduated from college with a degree in pre-med but chose to pursue the world of business. I have owned or co-owned several companies, including one that went public on the NYSE in 1996. I am an educated, health consumer and I research and learn about health issues that are affecting Susan and me. I have learned from the business world that true talent is rare. There are perhaps only 1% in any given field that are truly the best at what they do and Dr Johnson is part of this elite group.

Dr Johnson's approach to menopause management has enabled Susan to enjoy a better quality of life and productivity. We both travel all over the world and have great energy. I commend Dr Johnson for sharing her knowledge and experience in her book, 'Outliving Your Ovaries', so other women can also improve their health. "

"I believe this eBook will be a great benefit to women who are struggling in the area of hormonal imbalance. Dr. Johnson explains the difference between synthetic hormones and natural hormone replacement therapy. So many women are struggling with their hormones, hot flashes, mood swings, etc. Dr. Johnson brings her years of experience to answer women's questions and gives practical solutions that address the root of the problem versus treating the symptom! A must read for all women.

Dr Johnson takes great care to deal with each of her patients on an individual basis. I appreciate her thoroughness in testing, studying your medical history and taking time to put the pieces of your health puzzle together. She not only uses conventional medicine but is also well versed in natural supplements. She has provided excellent care for me and my family."

Dr Johnson earned her MD from the University of California at Los Angeles and completed an internal medicine residency at UCLA/St Mary's Medical Center in Long Beach, California.

Adding her wealth of clinical experience from over two decades of medical practice gives clinical relevance to the book.
