A handbook for women who want to understand their hormones and transform their lives for the better.
Hormones affect our health throughout our lives. So why do we so often assume they are mainly 'a menopause thing', and leave it until hot flushes arrive to start taking them seriously? The truth is that before the age of 50, many women find that their hormone-related symptoms just aren’t acknowledged, despite the impact they can have on almost every aspect of their lives, years before menopause hits.
Hormone imbalances can cause joint pain, weight gain, migraines, acne, sleepless nights, loss of libido, and much more. Medical science has come a long way in recent years, though, and there are wonderful treatment options available, including HRT, diet, and exercise. So why don’t more women know about them? Why are they still being told that they simply have to put up with these conditions?
Written by two doctors from their experience as practitioners and as women, and full of pioneering knowledge from epigenetics, stress medicine, nutritional medicine, and modern hormone replacement therapy, Our Hormones, Our Health aims to show women how to live with good health, good humour, and much happiness — no matter what their stage of life.
