The Hormone Survival Guide for Perimenopause
Balance Your Hormones Naturally
By Nisha Jackson, Ph.D.

      Have your moods become unpredictable? Has your libido gone on vacation--without you? Are you gaining weight even though you haven't changed your diet or exercise routine? If life has become an uphill battle, grab a copy of The Hormone Survival Guide for Perimenopause: Balance Your Hormones Naturally, and get ready to feel better.

     Hormones play a significant role in maintaining a woman's physical and emotional health. Dr. Jackson uses simple language to describe symptoms of imbalance, when and where to get tested, how to interpret the test results, and natural alternatives to synthetic hormone replacement therapy. She understands the stressors women face and gives valuable tips on squeezing proper diet, exercise and de-stressing into a hectic lifestyle.

     Dr. Jackson's tone is welcoming, like a learned friend chatting over a cup of Many-Veggie Soup (recipe included). Read her handbook from cover to cover, or read the chapters in order of importance to your present condition.

     This book is not meant as a substitute for your healthcare provider. Its purpose is to guide women through the labyrinth of perimenopause and to encourage women to rediscover the joy of life.
