Unlike many men their age, they may also suffer from sleep problems, osteoporosis, and depression. Too many middle-aged women have lost interest in sex, and they seem to age less slowly and gracefully than their male counterparts.Dr. Tami Meraglia knows that the magic word here is testosterone. While there is ample discussion in the medical community about the effects of estrogen loss, few people are aware of the importance of sufficient testosterone levels in women. A healthy balance helps women slim down, improves their mood, lowers the risk of cardiac disease, increases energy and libido, prevents osteoporosis, enhances skin tone and texture, and may even prevent cognitive decline-yet more than 90 percent of women over age forty-five suffer from low testosterone levels. In The Hormone Secret, Dr. Tami offers a thirty-day plan to fix this imbalance, using evidence-based remedies including herbs, vitamins, nutrition, and sometimes topical creams and bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy (they key is low dosage to prevent unwanted side effects). She also offers her hormone-customized Mediterranean Diet-based meal plan and low-impact exercise ideas that will immediately boost your energy levels.With cutting-edge research and strong scientific evidence to support Dr. Tamis thirty-day plan, The Hormone Secret gives you all the information you need to balance your hormones and improve your vitality for a strong and healthy life.
