Restoring Balance: An Individualized Approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy Millions of women today are facing mid-life with the same questions: Should I use hormone replacement therapy to decrease my risk of heart disease, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease? And, if I do, how do I know what to take or how much is right for me? Fortunately, now there is an answer.
In Restoring Balance: An Individualized Approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy, authors Marla Ahlgrimm, R.Ph., and John Kells provide women with an exciting new solution. They have combined their scientific experience in the medical and pharmaceutical fields with their understanding of the unique hormonal needs of women who are concerned with PMS, perimenopause and menopause. They have developed a revolutionary new program of hormone level testing, natural bio-identical hormone replacement, individualized hormone doses and regular followups.
Ahlgrimm and Kells recognize the importance of hormone replacement, but they are also keenly aware of the drawbacks of conventional treatments. Every woman is an individual, and her hormonal landscape is as unique to her as her fingerprints. A woman no longer has to accept the kind of "one-size-fits-all" prescription that is associated with disturbing side effects. She can choose an individualized hormone replacement program that is designed especially for her, that will minimize her hormonal discomforts and safeguard her long-term health.
Restoring Balance gives women the information they need to make important decisions about hormone replacement. Mid-life doesn't have to be a time of uncomfortable symptoms and dead-ends.

Venous Thrombosis in Women: Pregnancy, the Contraceptive Pill and Hormone Replacement Therapy The impact of hormones on deep venous thrombosis is one of the most charged and debated subjects in contraceptive medicine. Female hormonal balance is primarily affected by the use of either oral contraceptives or HRT. For a long time it has been recognized that oral contraceptives can raise the incidence of DVT; however, there has been an enormous controversy as to whether all progestins do this equally or whether some have a greater impact than others where oral contraception is concerned. Written by a world leader on the subject, this book offers the latest clinical information about the effects of pregnancy, the contraceptive pill, and hormone replacement therapy on thrombotic problems in women.
Hormone Replacement Therapies The medical profession has known of hormone therapy for 40 years, but, except for estrogen therapy, it's still gone unused. Why? The reasons most of the hormones discussed in this monograph don't get to you for the improvement of your health and increased longevity are politics and money, with a little doctor ignorance thrown in. This monograph is about these endocrine glands and how they quietly regulate your life and your health. It is accurate to say that when the endocrine glands start to fail, you start to die. What most doctors don't realize is that we are facing a sea change in longevity and health in the elderly. Now, with the proper supplemental hormones, we can slow the aging process and, in many cases, reverse some of the signs and symptoms of aging.
Hormone Replacement Therapy and the Menopause King's College Hospital, London, UK. Pocket handbook presents a review of the role of hormone replacement therapy in this patient population. Assesses the risks and benefits and aids the physician in helping patients make an informed decision regarding treatment and prevention. Softcover.
In the first complete history of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Elizabeth Siegel Watkins illuminates the complex and changing relationship between the medical treatment of menopause and cultural conceptions of aging.
Describing the development, spread, and shifting role of HRT in America from the early twentieth century to the present, Watkins explores how the interplay between science and society shaped the dissemination and reception of HRT and how the medicalization -- and subsequent efforts toward the demedicalization -- of menopause and aging affected the role of estrogen as a medical therapy. Telling the story from multiple perspectives -- physicians, pharmaceutical manufacturers, government regulators, feminist health activists, and the media, as well as women as patients and consumers -- she reveals the striking parallels between estrogen's history as a medical therapy and broad shifts in the role of medicine in an aging society.
Today, information about HRT is almost always accompanied by a laundry list of health risks. While physicians and pharmaceutical companies have striven to develop the safest possible treatment for the symptoms of menopause and aging, many specialists question whether HRT should be prescribed at all. Drawing from a wide range of scholarly research, archival records, and interviews, The Estrogen Elixir provides valuable historical context for one of the most pressing debates in contemporary medicine.

"Intelligent and well-structured... An admirable exercise in social history." -- Nature

Sex Hormone Replacement Therapy Sex Hormone Replacement Therapy addresses important issues in contemporary endocrinology. Its major emphasis is on the consequences of the menopause and on androgen deficiency in the absence of overt disease of the hypothalamus and/or pituitary in men. The use of hormone therapy for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in post-menopausal women has become an area of major debate, and the pros and cons are examined in detail. Secondary prevention also remains controversial and is addressed in this volume.
An issue of particular concern is the treatment of estrogen deficiency symptoms in women with the diagnosis of breast cancer. Whether older men with some androgen deficiency symptoms and equivocally low plasma testosterone concentrations should be treated with androgens is also a matter of great debate, as is the efficacy and safety of plant estrogens in the treatment of menopause-related complaints. Sex Hormone Replacement Therapy will be of interest to students and non-specialists, as well as a wide range of medical practitioners including endocrinologists, gynecologists, rheumatologists and cardiologists.
