Description de l'ouvrage

11 mars 2014
ALL TOO OFTEN WOMEN ARE TOLD that feeling moody, asexual, tapped out, dried up, stressed out, and sleep deprived is just a part of being female. Or they’re led to believe that the answer can be found only at the bottom of a bottle of prescription pills. Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard-educated physician and nationally recognized, board-certified gynecologist, refuses to accept that being a woman means feeling overwhelmed or that popping pills is the new normal. In The Hormone Cure, she shares the unique hormone-balancing program that she has used to help thousands of women reclaim wellness, verve, and optimal health.

Combining natural therapies with rigorous scientific testing and using an informative questionnaire to identify the common causes of hormonal imbalance, Dr. Gottfried provides an individualized plan in nonjudgmental and thoughtful language. Based on ten years’ study of cutting-edge medical research as a specialist in functional and integrative therapies, Dr. Gottfried’s three-tiered treatment strategy includes: •Supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies

•Herbal therapies that restore balance and optimize your body’s natural function

• Bioidentical hormones— most available without a prescription

The Hormone Cure is a groundbreaking book that demonstrates how balancing your hormones can cure underlying health issues and result in restored sleep, greater energy, improved mood, easy weight loss, increased productivity, and many more benefits. Dr. Sara Gottfried’s The Hormone Cure will transform your life.

The Hormone Cure



I’m a doctor who treats women’s hormones. I use the best evidence to discover the root causes of hormone imbalance. Then I apply a science-based correction for hormone balance. Every woman has unique hormonal needs, and I meet these needs by leveraging whatever it takes: nutrition, botanical remedies, critical precursors (essential ingredients to make brain chemicals and hormones) such as amino acids and B vitamins, ancient methodology, and bioidentical hormones. I believe that weight gain, mood swings, fatigue, and low libido aren’t diseases that can be “cured” with a quick injection or a pharmaceutical. Most of these problems can’t be permanently solved by eating less or exercising more. They are hormonal problems. They mean our bodies are trying to tell us that something is wrong. And with a rigorous strategy—methodical, repeatable, scientifically supported—those problems can be resolved.

That’s why I’ve designed a system I call The Gottfried Protocol, a step-by-step, integrative approach to natural hormone healing that emphasizes lifestyle design first and foremost. It’s based on decades of research, my education at Harvard Medical School, my own experiences with hormonal imbalances, my belief in peer-reviewed, well-performed randomized trials to support my recommendations, and what I’ve learned from patients over the past twenty-plus years of practicing medicine. The Gottfried Protocol engages only the top hierarchy of scientific evidence and has been proven in scores of women in my practice.

I’ve spent my career taking care not to overpromise. After all, I’m a physician, bioengineer, and scientist. In fact, I’m rather conservative medically. Unlike most books on hormones that come from the alternative-health world, this book takes a data-driven approach to integrative medicine. But because I’m also a yoga teacher, The Gottfried Protocol integrates the new brain science that proves how ancient methods such as mindfulness and herbology provide lasting change. Add to that what I’ve gleaned from more than two decades of caring for thousands of women, listening carefully to their stories, and observing and continuously tweaking how they respond to our work together. I’m confident that if you follow the advice in this book, you will feel better, reclaim the bounce in your step, and bloom as you were intended.

The Unfair Truth

Many women don’t know that hormonal imbalances cause them to feel crummy. My patients come to me distraught, complaining of relentless irritability, fatigue, poor stress resilience, irregular or painful menstrual cycles, dried-out vaginas, lackluster orgasms, and low libido. Many women feel their bodies have turned against them. In my years of clinical practice, I’ve seen it all: Women who would rather mop the floor than have sex with their husbands. Women who worry they can’t perform as well as they used to on the job because of brain fog. Husbands who plead with me: “Help me find the woman I married.” Women who are tired, unhappy, and perpetually overwhelmed.

It’s not fair but it’s a fact: women are much more vulnerable to hormonal imbalance than men. An underactive thyroid affects women up to fifteen times more often than men. According to national polls, women feel more stressed than men: 26 percent of women in the United States are on a pill for anxiety, depression, or a general feeling of being unable to cope, compared with 15 percent of men.

Why such a gender difference? For one thing, women have babies. Pregnancy amplifies the demands on the endocrine glands, which release hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, thyroid, leptin, growth hormone, and insulin. If you lack the organ reserves to keep up with amplified need, you may suffer; in fact, organ decline is measurable before symptoms begin to show. It’s not just pregnancy, as evidenced by the childless women I see in my practice. Women are exquisitely sensitive to hormonal changes. And they’re susceptible to the stresses of juggling multiple roles.

Never heard of organ reserve? Here’s the skinny: Your organ reserve is an individual organ’s inherent ability to withstand demands (such as grueling schedules, trauma, and surgery) and to restore homeostasis, or balance. As you age, reserve declines: healthy young people have a reserve capacity that is ten times greater than demand. After age thirty, organ reserve decreases by 1 percent per year, so that by age eighty-five, organ reserve is a fraction of the original capacity.


Organ reserve is the capacity of an organ, such as your ovaries, thyroid, or liver, to function beyond its baseline needs. For example, take your adrenal organs. You can test your adrenal (or stress) reserve by injecting a hormone to see if you can double or triple your adrenal gland’s output of cortisol when needed, such as in an emergency. If your adrenal organ reserve is low, your cortisol may not go up as high as needed. Your output is depleted and subnormal. You can do a similar test for your thyroid. Don’t worry about injecting hormones! Depending on your responses to the questionnaires in this book, I’ll guide you through sensible change.

You’ll find that if your organ reserve is full when you get pregnant, your postpartum hormonal roller-coaster ride will likely be a lot smoother. As you age, the same is true: your body bounces back more readily from the stressors of everyday life. However, accelerated aging is associated with low organ reserve and hormone imbalance.

Bottom line: organ reserve is a crucial aspect of longevity—the more you protect and enhance your functional capacity, the more able you are to bounce back from stresses such as illness, environmental toxins, and injury.

Hormonal Crosstalk

Food choices, environment, attitude, aging, stress, genetics, even the chemicals in our clothes and mattresses can affect our hormone levels. Another important influence is how our hormones interact. Remember Diane? Her problem was high cortisol, but the high cortisol blocked the function of other key hormones, such as her thyroid, the queen of metabolism, and her progesterone, the main antibloating hormone that also soothes the female brain. When you target and adjust several hormones simultaneously—the adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones—you get better results. Many of these root causes, such as the primary role of the stress hormone cortisol in Diane’s case, are simply overlooked by mainstream medicine. Hormonal problems are the top reason I find for accelerated aging, which occurs when the hormones that build muscle and bone decline more quickly than the hormones that break down tissue to provide energy. The result: our cells experience more wear and tear, less repair, and we feel and look older than our age. The goal is to have your breakdown in proportion to your repair, or even better, more repair than breakdown.

Untreated hormone imbalances can have serious consequences, including osteoporosis, obesity, and breast cancer. Clearly, it’s important to tune the body’s hormones to their optimal levels, both individually and in relation to each other.

My Hormonal Story

When I was in my thirties, I worked at a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and was preparing to launch an integrative medical practice. My busy husband traveled frequently (he is a green visionary who founded the U.S. and World Green Building Councils). I had two young kids and a mortgage to pay. As if this weren’t stressful enough, monthly PMS made my life miserable. In the week before my period, I had night sweats that disrupted my sleep. My heavy, painful periods came every twenty-two to twenty-three days—and when you combine that with PMS, I had only one good week per month. Throughout the month, I suffered from low energy, a nonexistent libido, and a less-than-sunny attitude. As you might imagine, this was a truly terrible experience, and my entire family suffered.

I was too young to feel so bad. Antidepressants didn’t seem like the right solution. I didn’t want to dampen my dynamic range or mute the texture of my life. I just wanted to feel more alive and charged.

I was lucky. Because of my medical training, I knew what to do. I formed a hypothesis: my hormones were off balance. In med school, I was taught that measuring hormone levels is a waste of time and money, because hormone levels vary too much. But when I thought about how we track hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and testosterone when women are trying to conceive or are in the early months of pregnancy, I wondered why those numbers would be important indications of a woman’s health in one situation but not another? Wouldn’t my hormone levels be as reliable an indicator of my health after my pregnancies as before them? So I drew some blood and tested my blood-serum levels of thyroid, sex hormones including estrogen and progesterone, and cortisol, the main stress hormone. And I discovered what millions of other women face: my hormones were seriously off kilter. I was a frazzled new mom, harried wife, and busy doctor, with significant imbalances in my estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and cortisol levels.

Despite the lack of nutrition and lifestyle education in the hallowed halls of Preparation H (our nickname for Harvard Medical School), I did learn how to approach a problem systematically. I was taught how to assess evidence and to distrust dogma. But rather than masking the symptoms of my hormone issues, as I had been taught to do (usually with a birth control pill ... --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

“The Hormone Cure is the playbook for your mojo, your mind, and your bootie. With every chapter I thought, "So THAT's how that works." I wanted to call every girlfriend and give them the goods on how to and always” (Danielle LaPorte, author of The Fire Starter Sessions)

“Never before have I read a book and shouted, ‘Oh my God, that’s ME!’ Managing hormones is the most important issue of women my age. I don’t just want to read Sara Gottfried, I want her to be my doctor, my friend, and my sister. (Ayelet Waldman, author of Red Hook Road and Bad Mother)

“This wonderful book transforms how we approach women’s health issues, and will help you understand how to achieve hormonal equilibrium if you suffer from fatigue, depression and other endocrine-based neuropsychiatric symptoms.” (Jay Lombard, DO, author of Balance your Brain, Balance your Life)

“Dr. Sara is smart, she’s hip, and yet she’s pure Harvard! Learn how to make your hormones hum. Run, don’t walk, to buy this book—for yourself and your friends. The life you save may be your own.” (Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health)

“A magnificent book! Every woman needs to read it, and every doctor.” (Louann Brizendine, MD, Author, The Female Brain and The Male Brain)

“Don’t accept the hormonal hell of being tired, stressed, fat, never in the mood for sex. Dr. Gottfried gives you an effective, easy-to-follow plan to balance your hormones and become lean and energetic. Stop settling, reclaim your sexy!” (JJ Virgin, author of Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy)

"Gottfried takes a comprehensive look at the most common physical and emotional ailments affecting women and explains why a hormone imbalance may be at their root. Her premise is simple: when a woman’s hormones are in sync, she’s a powerhouse, but when they’re out of whack, they wreak havoc on her body and mind. The book is both fun and an informative read [and] Gottfried’s take on the female body is eye-opening and empowering." (Spirituality and Health)

"Gottfried, a beautiful Harvard Medical School graduate, board-certified gynecologist, and yoga teacher, looks like an advertisement for healthy living and convincingly pushes women to make lifestyle changes rather than immediately asking for conventional prescription drugs to treat problems such as depression. Most of her tips are solid and helpful...A valuable title." (Booklist)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Here's the Answer that's NOT what your doctor is ordering! 12 mars 2013
Par J. Ilfeld - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Ok as we age, things change and yes I know that's normal - but sometimes it's hard to accept. After the birth of my 3rd kid, I could never really lose the "baby weight." I feel like I tried everything and got to the point where I was practically WANTING my thyroid to be abnormal so I could hopefully take a medicine and lose weight. Unfortunately - that's not really how it works. Even more unfortunately, when most of us go to our doctor's to complain about this sort of standstill (or worse - gaining weight), our Drs are sympathetic (After all they hear it all the time) but have no answers beyond the standard, "eat less, exercise more" advice.

Enter Dr. Sara Gottfried. In the hormone cure, she lays out the reasons why all these things we thought were just normal aging are really signs that our hormone levels are off-balance. And I don't mean menopause off-balance. I mean normal 30s, 40s not even peri-menopause off-balance. Dr Sara validates the fact that things can be off-balance in our body but that doesn't mean that our doctors will catch it, or actually even think to test it.

What this Harvard trained Gynecologist does is explain all the hormones at work in your body (cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, etc) and how you optimally need them to work together to feel your best. Honestly I'd heard of all of them but how no idea how they really worked in my body. She includes easy tests to take (if you don't want to pay lab fees) in her book or what tests to have ordered at labs if you want to be sure. Then she walks you through, step-by-step, what these results ACTUALLY mean. What a real normal is (not the dr's tables looking for REALLY abnormal) and if you are slightly off - how to correct it to feel your best.

It's like a user manual for hormones that you didn't even know existed yet are ruling your life! What I especially love is that a lot of Dr Gottfried's solutions are simple (not easy but simple) and involve no drugs - just lifestyle modifications (that are doable). Like heart math, or yoga breathing, or a simple food to eat. She also gives you the natural over the counter supplements you can take to fix an issue that continues (your Dr would/could NEVER do that) and then lastly, how you might use RX drugs if the issue persist. Basically covering all your bases from lifestyle fixes to drug fixes and in between - LOVE IT!

Fast forward a few months, I followed JJ Virgin's foodplan that Dr Gottfried recommended, along with some heart math and some lifestyle shifts and I'm down 7 lbs that wouldn't budge just months ago! I had honestly given up hope.

I would recommend this book for women who are committed to living a full life and want to know the full range of options to do it. The book is easy to read, funny, and Dr Sara is likable. It's also an amazing education that if you want to get to know your body's inner workings better - you can't miss. Read this book and someday soon, you too could be singing the "I feel awesome and my jeans are too big on me" non-blues!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Leaves a sour taste in my mouth 13 mars 2013
Par Lexi - Publié sur
Forget the confusing organization and the long winded passages and the "I'm your girlfriend who loves top 40 music" vibe the author is trying to cultivate.

What she really wants you to do is pay for more of her (poorly organized and grossly overpriced) programs. Join her detoxes, take online classes, pay for a monthly newsletter (it's all regurgitated info from the book anyways) and pay for access to old webinars and speeches. It's a lofty goal to help women improve their health and hormone balance is a genuine issue but this woman leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth. The website alone will set off alarms in any sane person's head - clearly this is someone who subscribes to the pyramid scheme marketing club.

Want to know what the book says? Stress less, eat healthy, get some vitamins and find an exercise regimen that works for you. And don't buy the freaking kindle or audio book. They're riddled with issues.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Narcissism at its finest... 25 janvier 2014
Par Gina J. - Publié sur
I couldn't even finish this book. And I had to unsubscribe from Sara Gottfried's newsletter. She's a doctor trying to be a celebrity and it's just awful. I believe that her want to market herself is much greater than her want to advance women's health.

What astounds me is that this book isn't even that helpful -- the suggestions are quite basic -- but she's dubbed them "The Gottfried Protocol." Please. Sara, you haven't brought anything new to light, you've just repackaged some common sense and previously-researched information and marketed them as your "protocol." The book was so wrought with arrogance and self-aggrandizing blabber, it was insulting.
