Despite the increased attention in the media to women's health, hormone connections are not being routinely evaluated and
as a result, critical information is still being missed. Women are suffering needlessly, often being given costly medications
that cause side-effects. In this revised and updated edition, Dr. Vliet continues her crusade to debunk the myths and misinformation
on women's health, and to inform readers about premature menopause, increasing hormone problems in young women, new natural
hormone options, over-the-counter herbs and supplements, "Syndrome W": perimenopausal weight gain and insulin resistance,
progesterone the pregnancy hormone, and the relationships between hormones and diseases.
