Reviews - What do customers think about Woman's Guide to Hormone Health, A: The Creator's Way for Managing Menopause?

Valuable Information  Oct 26, 2009
The first sentence of the first chapter is my favorite line in this book. "Menopause is not a disease." With those words the author had my attention. This book on woman's health was possibly one that would treat the effects of menopause as the natural occurrence that they are instead of illness. I had a feeling that I would like the book.

The author, Dr. J. Ron Eaker, uses a three-pronged approach in dealing with the effects of menopause and perimenopause. This approach includes medical, spiritual, and natural treatments to customize remedies the uncomfortable effects of menopause. Dr. Eaker explains the effects of the cessation of menos and gives the reader an understanding of what's going on in a woman's body during the years commonly called mid-life.

Careful study makes making choices in treatment easier. I didn't know there were so many treatment options or so much to think about in making the choice of hormone therapy.
There is information on:*Prescription oral estrogens - both synthetics and bio-identical.
*Delivery methods, such as
The patch
Creams and gels
*Progesterone, both prescription and non-prescription varieties.

The book also includes a discussion of the breast cancer risk.

I was very interested in the discussion of complementary approaches. Phytoestrogens are a category of foods containing plant based estrogens, that have a positive effect on menopause symptoms.

Dr. Eaker discusses many maladies that are attributed to the effects of menopause such as hot flashes, urinary incontinence, insomnia, joint and body aches, osteoporosis, and lagging libido. He treats each problem on an individual basis and gives treatment options for each.

The information in this book is so complete that a woman should be able to take part in making informed decisions on whether or not to use hormone replacement therapy and which of the many kinds is best for her individual needs.

Dr. Eaker strays away from the topic of hormone health in an extensive chapter on the healing power of prayer. This chapter is more about prayer as a whole than it is about dealing with menopause or hormonal issues. While it is true and very interesting, I found it a bit distracting.

"A Woman's Guide To Hormone Health" is a valuable tool for understanding and managing the years prior to and during menopause. I found it difficult to follow in places but it was very useful in looking up specific symptoms.
great book!  Aug 19, 2009
this book gave me a realistic view about menopause! i feel truly educated and without the usual biased opinions. i really liked all point of views in this book and it's many useful statistics. there is so much wrong information about menopause out there. this book sets the record straight:
menopause is not a disaese and women are not crazy when going through it!
a must read for all women out there, that don't want to be brainwashed by the media, health care providers and well meaning relatives!
there is hope and a normal life for us!
Very Informative & Witty  Jun 24, 2008
Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views (6/08)

Excerpts from the author's version of the Twenty-Third Psalm (Even in Menopause)

The Lord is my Shepard, I have all that I need (I'm fat, fatigued and fifty!)
He lets me rest in green meadows; (Even with hot flashes)
He leads me beside peaceful streams (In the middle of night sweats)
He renews my strength (when fatigue takes over)
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name (showing me options)........Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever (wrinkles and all).

As I am approaching the age of menopause I have started adding books on the subject to my reading list. I found this one to be very well written and informative on the subject. The author delivers the information in a witty but respectful way. He also alleviates the fear for many Christian women that these therapies may be un-Christian through Biblical references.

I really appreciated that the author took such a sensitive and often scary subject and lightened it up with a sense of humor. Two great examples of this were "So estrogen can be swallowed, shot in the rear end, implanted in your tum-tum, stuck on your derriere, and lathered on your skin" and "Every party has a pooper, and every drug has a downside" (page 108).

This comprehensive book discusses keeping the mind, body and spirit in balance through chapters on traditional hormone treatments, including the natural approach through herbs, complementary medicine, prayer, diet and exercise. The information presented will help alleviate the fear about a subject that can be really scary for a woman approaching middle age. I walked away with a thorough knowledge of what menopause and multiple options for getting through it.

I highly recommend "A Woman's Guide to Hormone Health" for Christian women who are approaching menopause age. It will definitely dispel the many myths surrounding the subject and you will walk away with a good knowledge about this next step in life.

Brilliant book  Apr 20, 2008
This is exactly the book my wife has been searching for for some time. It explains in very clear language the reasons for the previously confused series of moods and emotions. She is thrilled with it and now has a more relaxed response to the changes taking place at this stage of her life.
