One of the most common and agonizing problems women face today is hormonal imbalance. Sometimes it’s a nightmarish premenstrual syndrome—depression, cravings, bloating, weight gain, irritability, and even out-of-control rage for up to three weeks each month. Sometimes it’s periods so painful that you have to arrange your entire life around your cycle. Sometimes it’s a rocky passage into perimenopause that changes everything you know about yourself and your body. Luckily, you can resolve these hormonal issues—you just need accurate, actionable information to do so. In Is It Me or My Hormones?, Marcelle Pick, author of The Core Balance Diet and Is It Me or My Adrenals?, delves into the often misunderstood world of female hormonal imbalance. Sharing her personal struggles and her experiences with patients, Marcelle helps you understand how the right diet, exercise, supplements, herbs, and psychological support, occasionally complemented with bioidentical hormones, can free you from hormone disruption. After walking you through the basic science of how your hormones affect your body, mind, and emotions, Marcelle lays out an accessible, easy-to-follow, 28-day program—complete with schedules, exercises, supplements, meal plans, and recipes—that will stabilize your hormones in just one month and make you feel like yourself again. Unlike many medical professionals, Marcelle knows that your symptoms aren’t “just a normal part of being a woman” or “not that big a deal.” And in this book, she validates your experience of hormonal imbalance and opens your eyes to the power you have over your health. So join Marcelle on this journey to implement simple, natural changes that will help eliminate your cravings, depression, mood swings, and weight gain, and make you feel energized, sexual, and in command of your life.-- From publishers description.!

I got this book because I’m reading up on peri menopause. This is NOT a what to expect during this phase and suggestions re what to do about it. If you are looking for this kind of book, get The Menopause Solution by Faubion.
There’s NOT a lot of specific info in the book. For example, the author writes “If you are already struggling with hormonal imbalance, caffeine might be setting off an additional cascade of hormonal problems, including perimenopausal symptoms.”

And then doesn’t mention what these symptoms may be. Also NOT keen on using the drama word “struggling”.

The author is strongly pushing her 28 Day Plan. There is a shopping list, recipes and what to eat and/or do by the hour. This part of the book is 100 pages.

Why does this woman have so many problems that I have to pay to listen to? Is this supposed to be helpful?
