ALL TOO OFTEN WOMEN ARE TOLD that feeling moody, asexual, tapped out, dried up, stressed out, and sleep deprived is just a part of being female. Or they’re led to believe that the answer can be found only at the bottom of a bottle of prescription pills. Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard-educated physician and nationally recognized, board-certified gynecologist, refuses to accept that being a woman means feeling overwhelmed or that popping pills is the new normal. In The Hormone Cure, she shares the unique hormone-balancing program that she has used to help thousands of women reclaim wellness, verve, and optimal health.

The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast!

When it comes to weight loss, most people don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones—cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen—your body adjusts by increasingly raising your hormone levels and ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors.

Based on leading scientific research, The Hormone Reset Diet is her proven weight loss and energy program to reverse hormone resistance in just three weeks. It will help you:

Boost your metabolism and calorie burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors; Increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors; Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing cortisol).

For the last twenty years, this Harvard-MIT educated physician has helped thousands of women address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging, and illness. Going beyond her bestselling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

For much too long the traditional medical community has ignored, misdiagnosed, and mistreated millions of women suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance. Now, a world-renowned expert explains a safer and more natural approach to treating hormone-related conditions like PMS, weight gain, mood swings, and hot flashes.

The controversy continues to rage like hormones: The safety and efficacy of synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT) versus human-identical hormones.

In this second edition of the widely successful guide From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, world-renowned physician expert, C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D., and Genie James team up to challenge the continual promotion by the pharmaceutical industry--and the physicians they have brainwashed--of dangerous synthetic hormones. In this hard-hitting book, Dr. Randolph and Ms. James expose the shocking truth that for decades, whenever most women have complained to their doctor about menopausal symptoms, the traditional approach treatment has put both their health and their lives at risk. As a board certified gynecologist who has treated women with hormone balances for over a decade, Dr. Randolph contends that there is--and has been--a safe and effective alternative to synthetic hormones: Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Hormone Hell to Hormone Well shows readers how to:

Eradicate a "one-size-fits-all" approach to HRT and empower women to discover and maintain her 'hormonal equilibrium' through her changing lifecycle
Understand the new breakthroughs and discoveries in human-identical hormone therapy
Naturally replace the hormones that have decreased with age--with the science that supports the health benefits of biidentical hormone therapy
Enjoy vast improvements in mental and emotional health as well as resolving physical issues, including weight gain, depression, osteoporosis, hot flashes, low sex drive, and fatigue
A Personalized Program for Better Hormone Health

It’s no stretch to say that the information about perimenopause, menopause, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is confusing and often scary. Hormonal changes over time are natural, but they can sometimes be difficult. But they don’t need to put too much strain on your health and sanity if you understand what’s happening in your body and know how to manage it.

This workbook is your most valuable resource for hormone health. Written by a pioneering team of hormone researchers, it puts up-to-date, scientifically sound hormone information at your fingertips. Each chapter includes helpful exercises and assessments to help you get a clear picture of your health and make a plan for total hormonal wellness. You’ll also benefit from real-life stories of women just like you who have encountered hormonal challenges and, with the powerful tools in this book, made positive changes for better health.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure and The Hormone Reset Diet shows every woman how to create a lifestyle that will help her look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging.

Feel destined for cellulite, saddle bags, and belly fat? Does your family come from a long line of Alzheimer's, cancer, or heart disease? Will nothing help your aging skin or declining libido or flagging energy? This book is for you.

The body is magnificent but it doesn't come with a lifetime warranty, or an operating manual. You're the result of millions of years of evolution, but many of the adaptations that helped your ancestors survive are now working overtime to accelerate the aging process. The assumption here is that we are our genes and therefore trapped by the past. The good news is that your genetic code—the DNA sequence that is the biochemical basis of heredity—can play a minor role in the way you age.

The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT—trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week program that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young.

Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five-key factors that lead to accelerated aging -the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol and is as follows:

Feed—Week 1Sleep—Week 2Move—Week 3Release—Week 4Expose—Week 5Soothe—Week 6Think—Week 7

Younger increases not only your lifespan, but also your healthspan. Dr. Gottfried's program makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.

Go from wired and tired to lean and thriving with The Adrenal Reset Diet

Why are people gaining weight faster than ever before? The idea that people simply eat too much is no longer supported by science. The emerging idea is that weight gain is a survival response: Our bodies are under attack from all directions—an overabundance of processed food, a polluted world, and the pressures of daily life all take their toll. These attacks hit a very important set of glands, the adrenals, particularly hard. 

The adrenal glands maintain a normal cortisol rhythm (cortisol is a hormone associated with both stress and fat storage). When this rhythm is off, we can become overwhelmed more quickly, fatigued, gain weight, and eventually, develop even more severe health issues such as heart disease or diabetes.

In The Adrenal Reset Diet, Dr. Alan Christianson provides a pioneering plan for optimal function of these small but powerful organs. His patient-tested weight-loss program is the culmination of decades of clinical experience and over 75,000 patient-care visits. In a study at his clinic, participants on the Adrenal Reset Diet reset their cortisol levels by over 50% while losing an average of over 2 inches off their waists and 9 pounds of weight in 30 days. What can you expect? 


   • Learn whether your adrenals are Stressed, Wired and Tired, or Crashed and which adrenal tonics, exercises, and foods are best for you
   • The clinically proven shakes, juices, and other delicious recipes, to use for your Reset
   • New ways to turn off the triggers of weight gain with carbohydrate cycling, circadian repair, and simple breathing exercises
   • An easy 7-day ARD eating plan to move your and your adrenals from Surviving to Thriving
