A simple, clear, accessible 28-day plan to help you balance your hormones and feel like yourself again from a health-care professional who has helped hundreds of women-including herself-do just that!

Hormonal issues were a big part of my life, starting in my teens and especially in my early 20s. When I became a nurse practitioner, I discovered that I was far from alone. Many of my patients struggled with difficult PMS, painful periods, or challenging perimenopause, the transition into menopause that typically begins in the early or mid-40s and continues until menopause finally takes over. My patients were also dealing with endometriosis, fibroids, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and premature ovarian failure (POF) and other fertility issues. Many women felt, as I did, that hormonal issues were playing far too big a role in their lives. We all longed for a straightforward solution. As I got more information about functional medicine, I realized that many if not all of the symptoms could be resolved. I found that as I made dietary and lifestyle changes I became symptom free.

My own experience brought home the huge role hormones play in how we feel. Now when I see women every day with concerns, questions, and frustrations about their hormones, I really get it. And when I hear women tell me that their hormonal struggles shape their lives-that they plan their months around mood swings and cramps, or that perimenopause is making them feel old before their time-I get that, too.

This suffering is simply not necessary. That's why I have written this book.
