The Estrogen Alternative

Natural Hormone Therapy with Botanical Progesterone

Raquel Martin with Judi Gerstung, D.C.

Cover of The Estrogen Alternative


More and more women are seeking nondrug alternatives to synthetic hormones and their dangerous side-effects. In this revised and expanded third edition, Raquel Martin offers the most up-to-date information on how botanical progresterone therapy can provide safe, natural relief for many of the problems women face from hormone deficiency, including PMS, menstrual irregularity, miscarriages, uterine fibroids, infertility, depression, and fibromyalgia.

Botanical progesterone supplementation is also extremely effective in relieving hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms of menopause. The authors sift through the often confusing spate of studies on hormone replacement therapy and guide readers to natural alternatives. The book also offers advice on how to work with a sympathetic physician and provides mail-order sources for botanical progesterone.
