Reviews - What do customers think about Hormonal Balance: Understanding Hormones, Weight, and Your Metabolism?
He's misinformed Jan 3, 2008
I was enjoying this book until I came upon the Thyroid section where he stated that natural thyroid meds, like Armour, are actually dangerous and should not be used if you can take a synthetic version, like Synthroid. He says the dosage in Armour varies and is inconsistent. This is not true, as many many people, including myself, take it everyday and feel great instead of taking the synthetic stuff. I was shocked to read that.
HORMONAL BALANCE Nov 12, 2007
The most comprehensive book I have read thus far on total hormones. Easy reading, easy to understand. Book covers many hormones, their function in the body & how to get/keep them healthy. If you have felt tired, depressed, exhausted, moody, forgetful - READ THIS BOOK. It is not just a matter of ageing.
Informative Jan 11, 2007
Very informative. Good technical information in easy to understand terms. Appears to be very thorough. However, his dietary recommendations are lacking. Good, healthy nutrition does not include such things like processed foods and artificial sweeteners. There is so much good nutritional information available that never made it into this book.
Disappointing Jan 21, 2006
There's some medical information which you could find on the internet but it is disconnected by any theme. Also, the author claims that it is proved that high carbohydrate diets cause insulin resistance and diabetes.(pg76) He obviously hasn't read "The China Study" by T.C. Campbell. Nor has he read "Mastering Leptin" by B. Richards, otherwise he would not recommend snacking as a way to lose weight. There is a lot of information about drugs and supplements for serious illnesses which may not be useful to the reader looking for the hormonal connection to weight issues. For that read "Mastering Leptin" and "The China study".
One of the Better Books on the Subject Oct 28, 2005
"Hormonal Balance" details the functions of the thyroid, pituitary gland, adrenals, kidneys, the brain, androgen, estrogen, cortisol and stress hormones and how they all play a part in ensuring that the host person can enjoy the best quality of life. If that delicate balance is disrupted, due to excessive alcohol or caffeine, for example, or eating too much of the wrong kinds of foods, etc., then the effects should be obvious: irritability, nervousness, moodiness, depression and anxiety, and other conditions. Women should find this book especially useful, since it candidly discusses the causes, effects and corrections of PMS and menopause. This book is just as much for men, too. Mr. Isaac is convinced that obesity is the cause as well as the result of a poor, deficient dietary and exercise regimen. Reduction or elimination of lipids (fats), decreased sugar, counting calories sensibly, monitoring weight and maintaining exercise are all detailed in a way not found in other books. The eleven chapters perfectly over the 397 pages is one of the best literary, medical and wellbeing investments that can be readily purchased today.
