Item description for The Savvy Woman's Guide to Testosterone: How to Revitalize Your Sexuality, Strength and Stamina by Elizabeth Lee Vliet...
Testosterone is as natural to women as estrogen. It is not just a man's hormone. From a woman's teens until menopause, her body makes more testosterone than estrogen! Testosterone is crucial to a woman's health and well-being. Loss of testosterone can cause loss of sex drive and sexual sensation, marked fatigue, low energy, hair loss, decreased stamina, loss of height, and other symptoms. New testosterone therapy options for women are poised to hit the consumer market in 2005 and will revolutionize approaches to help women's sexual response, much as Viagra revolutionized the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. Now it's women's turn. This book is written by a nationally known women's health physician and hormone specialist to provide reliable, cutting-edge medical information, important now to overcome stigma and negative myths about testosterone. Dr. Vliet teaches women to avoid risks of improper dosing using new treatment options with bioidentical testosterone. This book will help women learn ways to restore libido, improve muscle strength, build healthy bone, and maintain normal energy levels.

The Savvy Woman's Guide to Testosterone May 12, 2008
Very good book. She does it again! Dr. Vliet knows her stuff. I'd recommend this book to any woman who wants to know how hormones effect her life.
Hormones Are Too Important To Leave To Your Doctors Mar 27, 2008
Most US doctors know very little about the effects of hormones on women's bodies. Testosterone is incredibly important for women as they age-it is the hormone not only of sexual desire, but desire for life, drives to achieve, and enjoyment of life. Find out the testosterone link to healthy skin, hair, eyes, and urinary tract, brain, and mood! Learn how to measure it, what the lab results mean, and how to supplement it safely. This is the clear and complete handbook for women from a female physician who has been treating patients for 25 years, and is on the cutting edge of the latest research. She also covers these topics in a weekly internet radio show at www.blogtalkradio.com/drvliet which is devoted to information, not sales pitches.
It's about time.... May 8, 2007
Thanks to the author, the word MAY get out. I only found out about Testosterone when I got "pre-cancerous lesions". This was about 8 years after I had total hysterectomy.(Removal of ovaries, cervix and uterus)at age 32. During that time, I lost pubic hair (and even head hair), my vagina shrunk so bad I looked like a Barbie Doll and sex/libido was GONE. Then when I got these lesions, GYN prescribed Testosterone as "useful" but controversial. Within days, the lesions diappeared, hair began to grow back, vagina softened and swelled to normal and then I got HORNY! I've used it for over 10 years now and I look younger than my friends, I have a very happy hubby, my body looks ten years younger and I am in my sixties. I moved to a new state and the new Doctor is not wild over my insistence of Testosterone cream. He says it's controversial. I want to say, "Get over it - just look at your patient, don't you see the health difference?" So don't expect your MD to clamor for the information this good Dr. Vliet is imparting. After all, she is a female. I say, just listen to her!

Anything that Dr. Vliet writes is always informative. It's information that even your own personal physician may not know.
Very enlighteneing Jan 9, 2007
I read this book in one night and determined that my lack of test. was the problem and immediately contacted my gyn and got a prescription. She had already told me that I was low and I was prescribed another prescription before but it made me angry and unhappy. This compounded prescription is just right and I feel like my old self again.
