For some women, natural hormonal fluctuations create little stress or discomfort, while for many others hormonal changes can cause severe, chronic suffering. The simple truth is that nearly all women will experience a hormone-related illness at some point in their lives.
In this practical, solution-filled resource, women's health educator Gillian Ford empowers women by giving them the facts. Listening to Your Hormones illustrates the pervasive role hormones play in women's lives and reveals how to form a successful partnership with a doctor to find treatments that work.
"Women are wonderfully unique beings, and, finally, Gillian Ford has addressed our special hormonal concerns and needs. For the millions of women who experience emotional and physical changes from PMS through menopause, this book is a gold mine of information."
â€”Debra Waterhouse, M.P.H., R.D., author of Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell and Why Women Need Chocolate.
"Give[s] women an opportunity to take positive control of their own health . . .A crucially important book."
â€”Janine O-Leary Cobb, author of Understanding Menopause

I am the author. I wrote this book for women, like myself, who suffer from common hormonal disorders. These include PMS, thyroid disorders, menopausal and perimenopausal problems, and postpartum depression, among other things. Because women have complex hormone and immune systems in order to maintain pregnancy, they have a greater proportion of hormone problems than men. Each woman is unique and can present quite differently. This often leads to a lack of recognition in the medical world. This book is meant to be a guide to practical help for such women and their partners.From the Back Cover:
