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.

“The Hormone Cure is a breakthrough hormone guide -entertaining, persuasive, hilarious. I’ve not seen this content anywhere! Get to the root of your issues: low energy, fatigue, low sex drive, anxiety, weight gain. This book is gold.” (Marci Shimoff, New York Times best-selling author of Love for No Reason)
“Never before have I read a book and shouted, ‘Oh my God, that’s ME!’ Managing hormones is the most important issue of women my age. I don’t just want to read Sara Gottfried, I want her to be my doctor, my friend, and my sister.” (Ayelet Waldman, New York Times best-selling author of Red Hook Road)
“A magnificent book! Every woman needs to read it, and every doctor.” (Louann Brizendine, MD, New York Times best-selling author of The Male Brain)
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.
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.
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.
I don't know what people were talking about on some of the reviews on Amazon. This book is absolutely fantastic! I've never seen a book of its kind. Everywoman needs to read this book!
Stop the needless suffering ladies…
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.
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.
That it all makes sense. It was like Dr. Sara was talking directly to me.
She put life to what could have been a very dull science lecturer.
Totally enjoyed the Twilight Series!
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.
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.
This book provides a wonderful overview of how our hormones are interconnected, and how deeply stress and lifestyle choices impact our bodies. Unfortunately, the narrator read the text so slowly and mispronounced so many words I stopped listening to the book a couple hours into it and bought the physical book instead. So frustrating!
