  The Wild Genie: The Healing Power of Menstruation
by Alexandra Pope—Celebrate the dignity and deeper meaning of woman's cyclical nature. Especially if you suffer from PMS, fibroids, cramping, and other menstrual problems, the wise advice of a respected psychotherapist and health educator will help you move beyond the pain into a healthy, empowering acceptance of your body's inherent processes. Recipes, home remedies, and other natural cures--rather than drugs--can transform your suffering into strength, unbottling the genie inside you to gain a greater understanding of the female cycle.

  Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health
by Toni Wechsler—This comprehensive book explains in lucid, assured terms how to practice the fertility awareness method (FAM), a natural, scientifically proven but little-known form of birth control (which is not to be confused with the woefully ineffective "rhythm" method).

  The Blessings of The Curse: No More Periods?
by Susan Rako—Encouraging healthy menstruating women and even teenage girls to do away with their normal menstrual cycles by dosing themselves more or less nonstop with hormones (a multi-billion-dollar-per-year industry) is, in a word, reckless. What every woman and her doctor MUST know about the actual benefits of the normal menstrual cycle—naturally lowered blood pressure, reduced risk of heart attacks and strokes, healthy bones, rhythmic stimulation of sexual desire and creativity—and about the potential hazards of menstrual suppression (heart attacks, strokes, cervical cancer, osteoporosis, depressed libido) deserves a voice. I am determined that it will have one.

  Sex, Lies, and Menopause : The Shocking Truth About Hormone Replacement Therapy
by T. S. Wiley—Provocative, empowering, and scientifically sound, Sex, Lies, and Menopause addresses the inherent benefits of natural progesterone, reveals the lies advanced by the medical and drug establishments, and challenges women to demand a medical future where their health comes first. The research presented here will at last allow women to create their own plan of action by safely putting themselves on the path to better health and hormonal balance at any stage of life.

  The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women: Exploding the Estrogen Myth
by Barbara Seaman—Science journalist Seaman, cofounder of the National Women's Health Network, takes no prisoners in this scathing indictment of hormone replacement therapy in general and estrogen in particular. Her account of pandemic abuse of the trust women place in their doctors cuts a wide swath of guilt that begins at medical practitioners but scores drug manufacturers as well as the Food and Drug Administration. The experiment with hormone replacement--called an experiment because the drugs were manufactured, marketed, and prescribed either without or in defiance of scientific proof of their safety--began in 1938 in England when a biochemist published his formula for synthetic estrogen, diethylstilbestrol (DES). The ensuing story reads like an X-Files conspiracy script as, for the next 65 years, doctors and authorities ignored mounting evidence of the sometimes-fatal consequences of taking these hormones.

  What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause™: Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty
by John R. Lee—Are you a woman between 35 and 50 experiencing PMS, migraine headaches, sudden weight gain, fatigue, irritability, tender or lumpy breasts, memory loss, fibroids, or cold hands and feet? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of premenopause. Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone.

  What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause™: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Hormone Balance
by John R. Lee—This book offers 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.
