Every woman, young and old, should read this - it is pertinent to all. Dr. Lee covers a lot of bases and goes into great technical detail supporting his claims. Even if you're not near menopause yet, the lifestyle and nutrition info is worth getting the book for. After reading this, I talked to my doctor about it and she agreed to prescribe progesterone cream for me; after 2 weeks I am already starting to notice improvement. Additionally, with the info Dr. Lee presents, I will be able to keep both my husband and myself healthier long-term. I highly recommend this book & giving one to all your friends as well.
