What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause
by John R. Lee, M.D., and Virginia Hopkins

THE EXCITING FACTS ABOUT NATURAL PROGESTERONE AND HOW IT CAN DELIVER WHAT HRT AND ESTROGEN ONLY PROMISE

Premenopausal symptoms, endometriosis, weight gain, low sex drive, fibrocystic breasts, heart disease, and osteoporosis—most women will experience these or other hormone-related problems. And today, millions of women concerned about aging must decide whether or not to undergo synthetic hormone replacement therapy—and suffer its side effects and increased risks of cancer.

But there is revolutionary news about completely safe, natural progesterone, the only hormone supplement women may need as they age. The exciting clinical findings from its use were first spread by word of mouth, then in a groundbreaking book written by acclaimed California physician John R. Lee. Now, in this expanded and completely updated edition, Dr. Lee brings you lifesaving facts that even your doctor may not know about Premarin, Provera, and other HRT drugs; gives you an easy-to-follow nonprescription "Hormone Balance" program; and tells you how to stay energized, strong, sexually vigorous, and free from "female problems" before menopause, during the menopausal years, and beyond. 372 Pages
