Product Description

Review

"At last, a book about how to achieve hormonal health that looks at the big picture. This book is a treasure. "

–Christiane Northrup, MD, author of The Secret Pleasures of Menopause (Hay House, 2008),  The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, revised 2006), Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam, revised 2006), and  Mother-Daughter Wisdom (Bantam, 2005) 

The Hormone Diet adds an exciting new dimension to the contemporary discussion of hormones and health. It teaches people of all ages how to favorably alter their own internal hormone production with diet change, exercise, adequate sleep, natural detoxification, stress reduction, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and botanicals–a truly patent medicine-free and very effective, holistic approach.
Dr. Natasha Turner leads readers through a simple, step-by-step approach to determine which of their hormones are high and which are low, and then another step-by-step approach to the correction of these imbalances over time. Following her advice will result in significantly better hormone balance and over-all health–and lead to sustained weight loss for as long as her program is followed.Very highly recommended!”

–Dr. Jonathan Wright, a pioneer for natural female hormone replacement

"Dr. Natasha Turner, N.D., is brilliant, authentic and a top notch author....She is sincerely dedicated to the health and well-being of us all.I have found her advice and experience to be remarkably helpful in my life. I am sure this book will become the cornerstone of your progressive, healthy lifestyle....I personally favour Dr. Turner's approach as it gives certain hope for the possibility of re-establishing superior hormone communication patterns by non-drug, lifestyle interventions. This is powerful knowledge! My 25 years of research has demonstrated to me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the groundbreaking dietary approach explained in The Hormone Diet, with straightforward, no-nonsense terminology - from eating slowly to fully embracing life and joy - is the best strategy for a healthy and happy life."

–Sam Graci, internationally renowned lecturer, researcher, formulator of greens+, and author of four books including his latest, The Bone-Building Solution.

If I had a nickel for every diet book I have read ...well, I would have a lot more nickels than pounds lost, that's for sure! I have never written a review before but this book inspires me to do. First I will get to my review, then I will share my results so far. The review part: this is SO much more than just a diet book and that is EXACTLY why I liked it. A couple people complained that the author spent too much time talking about hormones and didn't get to the diet part until late in the book, but the reason it worked for me is because she actually did discuss the reasons why I have had so much difficult losing weight or keeping it off in the past. According to her, until we get to the root of the problems - hormones - you can't lose weight because it's the hormones running the show! I'll tell ya, if you want just another diet book, there's a million of them on the shelves at any book store. This is so much more. In the first part of the book she discusses 16 different hormonal imbalances and the symptoms of each one. When I read that it was like a lightbulb going off in my head - I clearly had hormone imbalance 7 (excess estrogen), hormone imbalance 13 (low thyroid) and hormone imbalance 9 (low progesterone) and her hormonal health questionnaire revealed it. For years I thought that this was maybe just a normal part of aging and yet all I would think about was how good I used to feel years ago. I felt depressed, anxious, fuzzy and frumpy almost ALL the time!

Well, I got on her detox, (including her bathroom and kitchen detox) and starting feeling much better, and while it didn't happen overnight the pounds did start coming off. I also started incorporating her supplement suggestions for each hormonal imbalance, modifying my sleep habits and doing the workout in the book.

I read this book from cover to cover and it just made sense. She addresses issues of sleeping, stress, food an then exercise. I am almost finished the 6 weeks and feel fantastic. The recipes are delicious and tasty. I am all ready sharing this book with friends and family.

I bought this book based on a recommendation from my doctor. I was extremely tired and experiencing dizziness and nausea. My doctor told me that many of her patients found that by reading this book and following the program it solved the same issues I was having. The book it filled with a ton of information about hormones and how what we eat, our sleep patterns, and exercise affects those hormones.
I wish I had read the book sooner!

Format: Paperback
Best book ever.....why don't they make them like this anymore. This book has become our go to diet bible. It gives explicite details of different hormones, their function, the specific nutrients we need as well as a daily plan for hormonal balance, which includes the time of day that each hormone should be functioning and how we can get them to function. This book also has great and simple recipies to help with healthy weightloss and healthy muscle gain. For people who are interested in cosmetic and skin care, there is also a chapter dedicated to this, which shows the ingredients in simple products like shower gels that are affecting the way our hormones function and suggestions of where to get more natural products. We love this book because it doesn't only point out the causes of the problem, but the solution to them.

Format: Hardcover
It is simply a gem. It's all you'll ever need to reclaim your health. Natasha could have done 4 books out of all the information she's packed in this one. It's surprisingly accessible, despite the fact that she's dealing with a lot of medical information (and words with too many letters).

I've been lucky to be one of Natasha's patient for over 10 years and she's put me on her plan way before her book came out. After being misdiagnosed for 3 years by my ex-GP, my hypothyrodism was getting worse. She the first one who saw what was wrong and helped me get back on my feet. My pre-menoposal years are getting closer but I fear not this transition because I know that it'll be greatly eased by her help and the plan in her book.

If you don't have the chance to have a great ND like I have, at least get yourself this book. Now!

I bought this book not so much for dieting, but to obtain some advice on hormones, since my body seems to be more sensitive with possible perimenopausal symptoms. This book is excellent in describing how what we eat affects our hormones and general information on how to eat healthier. Excellent read, I'm only half-way through and very impressed.
