The latest information about estrogen, the body’s enlivening powerhouse hormone. explains:
Dr. Uzzi Reiss draws upon the most up-to-date scientific research, as well as womens stories from his decades of practice, to explain:
This book, written by an expert in the field of OB-GYN and integrative medicine, offers an authoritative yet accessible approach to hormonal health.
Understanding estrogen its function and interplay with all your other hormones and body systems is key to a healthy, vibrant life. But far too many women remain unaware of the benefits of estrogen, and how it can be supplemented in natural, bioidentical form.
If you’ve sat down with me at the office, you know that I’m beholden to the women in my life: my patients, my wife, Yael, and also my daughter, Yfat (“ee-fot”), who works in the book industry. Not long ago, Yfat observed that I had changed my advice about how to use the estrogen cream I recommend.
“That isn’t in your books,” she said, referring to Natural Hormone Balance for Women and its update The Natural Superwoman.
And she was right. So much has changed in what I know about the power of estrogen to:
Achieve physical and emotional fitness, including staving off depression and anxiety
Maximize energy and enhance sexuality
Alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and the side effects of menopause
Fight weight gain and loss of muscle tone
Promote bone and breast health
Prevent cardiovascular disease
Improve and protect skin elasticity and texture, and
Boost brain power
Hearing this, she told me to get to work in committing to paper all that’s new in the constantly evolving field of hormonal health and in my own best practices for patient care, but this time with a special focus on the safe use of estrogen – the function and interplay with other hormones and body systems – key to a healthy and vibrant life.
In The Good News About Estrogen (St. Martin’s Press) I share my state-of-the-art knowledge on:
The newest best-practices on how to safely supplement estrogen and other hormones at any age
How everyday habits – what you eat, drink, wear and even breathe – can affect all hormonal health, and which small lifestyle changes can make a big difference
And, importantly, how (and what) nutrition and modest exercise work hand-in-hand with your hormones and can help you to enjoy all the benefits of game-changing ongoing wellness
The Good News About Estrogen is meant to serve as a resource manual for those of you who wish you could visit the office more often, or for friends and sisters who you wish would come with you, but cannot or will not.
I’m so grateful for the support you’ve given me and this emerging modality of women’s healthcare and excited to share all that I’ve learned in The Good News About Estrogen.
