The Natural Hormone Makeover shows you how to correct perimenopause- and menopause-related hormone imbalances safely by using natural or bioidentical hormones-many of which are available at the drugstore or health food store-instead of risky hormone replacement therapy. You'll learn how to determine which of your hormones-including estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, HGH, progesterone, and melatonin-may be unbalanced and create a personalized program to rebalance and support these hormones with natural hormone supplements, creams, and hormone-stimulating foods. This unique anti-aging approach to menopause also includes a list of the foods that are the most powerful in healing the effects of hormone imbalance and keeping you young and healthy for decades to come. This book is a must-read whether you are thirty-five and just beginning to notice changes or fifty-plus and confused about what to do.
