A safe, effective hormone balance program for women aged 30-50 suffering from premenopause syndrome. Restore and maintain gynecological health, sex drive, and energy.

I'm too young for menopause. So why do I feel like this? Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone. Over 50 million women experience premenopause symptoms, including:

  • Unexplained, sudden weight gain
  • Severe PMS, fatigue, irritability, and mood swings
  • Loss of libido
  • Tender or lumpy breasts
  • Fibroids and endometriosis
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Very heavy or light periods
  • Or other symptoms like infertility, memory loss, and migraines.
Now Dr. John Lee-author of the groundbreaking What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause-teams up with women's health expert Jesse Hanley, M.D., to bring you a revolutionary nonprescription "Balance Program" with simple, safe, and natural solutions for premenopause.

Learn how natural progesterone and changes to your diet and environment can balance your hormones, eliminate premenopausal symptoms, and make you feel better-all without surgery, antidepressants, or prescription hormones.

Like many women in their 40's, I was struggling with perimenopause and the effects of prolonged stress on my body. Frequent and heavy monthlies, hormonal swings I didn't understand, and a compromised immune system were just some of the problems. This went on for years and affected every aspect of my life. Although my own GYN did recognize the depletion of stress hormones in my adrenals and gave me very good advice on how to deal with some of this problem naturally, a progesterone deficiency did not occur to him, nor did taking herbs to strengthen it. After moving, I went to a new doctor who not only misdiagnosed me completely, but tried to give me PremPro, which would have made things worse! Fortunately, I recognized on my own that I didn't have an estrogen deficiency from the symptoms I was having and found this book. I saw myself in so many pages! These two beautiful people who cared enough to write it steered me in directions where I could help myself, when no one else would or could. I got saliva tests for my hormones and found out just exactly what was wrong with me. They explain the vital role progesterone has in our bodies... I really had no idea and would not be a whole person, today, if I had not found this. I would like to add that I do not necessarily agree with everything stated in here 100%. He recommends taking no estrogen supplements, at all. But I have found that, now that I am actually in the menopausal state, taking phytoestrogens (red clover blossom, black cohosh and soy) along with the progesterone cream, seems to work the best for me. (I would also highly recommend taking cold pressed flax seed oil. I can't remember whether that was stated in the book or not, but fyi.) This book is not just for women with perimenopause, menopausal women and those with hysterectomies are also addressed throughout - it contains valuable information for you, too. On the whole, I don't know what I would have done without this book!!

The pre-menopause (perimenopause) can be the worst of the menopausal process. It's when hot flashes and night sweats are at their worst, not to mention those wild mood swings. Natural progesterone is offered as a remedy, and 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 women past the pre-menopausal period. 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!

I recently purchased this book, and I am excited about all the new information that I've been learning. I've begun quoting things I've learned to friends and family members. In fact, I'm online again to purchase a copy for my sister, we're 37 and 38 years of age. I found myself described in numerous excerpts from the book. For any woman who is at least 35 years of age, stressed with all the demands of work, family and/or school (and what woman isn't), I would recommend reading this book.

I was reading this book for information. I approach all 'new' cures with skepticism. Not only have I experienced better health, friends and family have as well. I was telling a friend about this book. She had not read this book and was already taking progesterone cream. This is her story. She had been bleeding almost constantly and had been having a non-stop head ache for months. The doctors were considering hysterectomy. She said she had done some reading on the internet and started taking the cream. the bleeding stoped within 3 days and she hasn't had a headache since. My daughter's (27 yrs old) doctors removed her uterus to cure endometriosis. needless to say the endometriosis returned along with pain. Now they want take her ovaries. She also has horrific headaches due to hornone imbalance. I suggested she try the progesterone cream for at least 6 months before having the radical surgery. She is now almost pain free and her headaches are all but gone. No side effects, no blood clots.

Dr. Lee's book convinced me to try natural progesterone, and it was one of the worst decisions ever. After only one month of use, I developed blood clots in my legs, and became so ill that it has taken over six months to recover. Progesterone cream builds up in your tissues over time and can make you very, very sick. Do not believe it when you read that there are no side effects and it is impossible to overdose. Know that the progesterone you're putting on your skin, although 'natural', is capable of having all the same effects as the progesterone in birth control pills and RU-486 ~ in other words, you're using something with serious dangers connected to it. Please, please be careful. Get Barbara Seaman or Ellen Grant, MD's books for better information.

This is a wonderful guide to young women experiencing early menopause symptoms. I am 35, trying to conceive and was told I am in premenopause. After awaking from the shock, I bought this book and have been using the cream they suggest. Wow. What a difference it has made in the first month!
