Publisher's Summary

A Harvard physician’s scientifically proven method to improve your physical and mental health by optimizing your hormones in your 30s, 40s, and beyond....

Dr. Sara Gottfried refuses to accept the traditional medical thinking that feeling cranky, asexual, tapped out, and sleep-deprived is just part of being female and aging, and that prescription medication will fix all problems. Offering solutions in nonjudgmental and thoughtful language, Dr. Gottfried provides a novel plan based on solid scientific research. She believes you don’t find a cure at the bottom of a pill bottle. A specialist in functional and integrative therapies, Dr. Gottfried bases her three-step treatment strategy on 10 years’ study of cutting-edge techniques and ancient treatments validated by current medical research. The plan includes supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies, herbal therapies, and bio-identical hormones - most available without a prescription.

Easy to understand and highly illuminating, The Hormone Cure demonstrates how balancing your hormones can actually cure underlying health issues, alleviate symptoms, and give women a life of increased energy, sensuality, and resilience.

    "Great info, super dull to listen to."

    I love listening to health and nutrition podcasts and have enjoyed other audiobooks in this genre, but I was actually relieved when this one finally ended. Even the parts that I was extremely interested in were very hard to pay attention to. I'm certain that this is because of the narration style, not the author's writing. I will probably just buy the physical book to re-read and use as a reference because the narrator is so very dull to listen to. Don't waste your time or money on this audiobook, just get a hard copy.

    "Gives me hope"

    First off I thought the narrator was going to be difficult to listen to but instead was soothing and perfect for this read. Information and tricks sound like a great start to finding my cure and definitely lots of info and tips that I look forward to trying.

    "Extremely in-depth"

    This is a book that covers extreme spectrum of hormone problems I would definitely need to download the PDFs and possibly even get the print version to fully utilize all of its potential.

    "Listening to this book is stressful"

    The narrator chosen for this book puts strong emphasis on every three or four words. I feel like I'm being shouted at. She might be a better fit for more dramatic material but the constant emphasis makes it hard to grasp what is real important.

    The information is great but a bit dry -- I am wishing I had a print copy to refer to for the protocols.

    "Excellent read!"

    I totally enjoyed listening to this book. This book was very well thought out. As I finished listening to this book, I had the sensation to go back and relisten to this book all over again! It is just that good and will have you coming back for more.

    "enlighting"
    What did you love best about The Hormone Cure?

    It helped to understand that I'm not going crazy, It's not me but my hormones that are all out of wack. It gave me extreme relief to know there is hope and a light at the end of the tunnel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it all makes sense. It was like Dr. Sara was talking directly to me.


    Which character – as performed by Tara Hugo – was your favorite?

    She put life to what could have been a very dull science lecturer.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    "Terrible Reader"

    This reader is way to harsh for this book. I can barely stand to listen to her. This book should have been read by the author or someone who at least sounds like they identify with the subject matter.

    "Great Book and info, but horrible narration"
    What did you love best about The Hormone Cure?

    Loved the very detailed presentation. Information was well presented, but can be a bit confusing if you do not have a experience with medical or scientific material.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Great important info. Maybe author should drop the cutesy, popular, teenage lingo. Sounds like she's trying too hard. We get it already, and we are over 35.....


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tara Hugo?

    anyone...she's horrid. I barely could get through the book. She mispronounced many things. Her reading rhythm/meter was off for the type of material. She sounded like she was acting out Shakespeare when she was talking about simple things like the thyroid dysfunction, etc. Lets not even mention any verbiage about sex.....ewww, her emphatic, sexy voicings made my flesh crawl. Get the hard copy of this. There are too many pieces of data that one misses listening to it being read. Then there is content referencing to the PDF, etc.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no.
