The book should be a mandatory read for every woman, and if you only read one of the books in this post make it this one. Alisa has a wealth of knowledge and shares it in a way that is easy to understand. She teaches you how to “live in the flo” so that you are working with your body to support it instead of always trying to fight against it. She has a free app called “MyFLO” (for Apple devices at least, I’m not sure about android) that helps you track your period, symptoms and offers advice and tips.
I am a bodybuilder and I bought this book to learn about how to get my hormones in a good place. Lifting weights has a huge impact on not just the muscles but also the hormone levels in the body and If you are not careful you can end up with adrenal fatigue (when your adrenal glands are worn out) I am very excited to see how using this diet works for me. It looks like it is based on good principles and should help with muscle gain, I will keep you posted

Dr. Henry’s laboratory has made major contributions to the understanding of vitamin D metabolism, particularly regulation of the production of the active vitamin D hormone by the kidney. She pioneered the use of cell culture systems to study renal vitamin D metabolism. A related area of research focus is the regulation of gene expression in the kidney by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3. In addition to peer-reviewed research articles, Dr. Henry has authored chapters for the books Vitamin D and Handbook of Physiology, as well as the chapter on “Vitamin D Metabolism” for this Encyclopedia.
As much as many North Americans have a hormone imbalance, just as many have a certain degree of adrenal fatigue. That degree can vary from a small touch of adrenal fatigue to full-on, “barely even functioning” adrenal fatigue. While I don’t follow this diet, I do continue to cycle carbs and have had such a change in my overall health since implementing that type of lifestyle. This is the book that truly changed the way I thought about exercise, and cardio specifically. Sara’s books also touch on the best types of exercise and between the two I’ve drastically changed both my own workout regimes, but also those of my clients.
Hormones regulate our bodies and run our lives—when they’re in balance we feel great, look beautiful, are fertile and sexual, and enjoy every moment of our existence. When they’re out of balance, whether during adolescence, pregnancy, menopause, or from medication or surgically induced, it can lead to devastating conditions like infertility, postpartum depression, insomnia, weight gain, loss of libido, memory loss, and unnecessary tests and surgeries.
I like to check out diet books from the library to look at their recipes, because I figure they're probably lower in fat. I don't usually care to follow the diet, because I think that there's really only way to lose weight and keep it off for me (watching what I eat and exercise). I'm not into crash diets, but I did think that this was educational for me, since I actually did read it and not just look at the recipes.
You kick-start the diet with a two-week detox designed to clear excess hormones such as estrogen and cortisol and reduce inflammation. During the initial four weeks, when you’re determining which foods you need to cut from your diet, Natasha Turner, a naturopathic doctor and founder of the Supercharged Hormone Diet recommends you take supplements. Taking supplements will improve the breakdown of hormones, increase your metabolism and reduce cravings. These include a probiotic, an herbal cleanse for the liver, a bowel cleanser with fiber and vitamin D3. The supplements are optional, however, and are not recommended for pregnant women.
The 3rd edition of Hormones offers a comprehensive treatment of the hormones of humans all viewed from the context of current theories of their action in the framework of our current understanding their physiological actions as well as their molecular structures, and those of their receptors. This new edition of Hormones is intended to be used by advanced undergraduates and graduate students in the biological sciences.  It will also provide useful background information for first year medical students as they engage in studies which are increasingly problem-based rather than discipline-focused.  As the field of endocrinology itself has expanded so much in the past two decades, the up to date presentation of the basics presented in this book will be a solid foundation on which more specialized considerations can be based.
I don;t have a great deal of time to read about a personal journey although I definitely relate to this professional. I purchased a couple of her books, which I have been able to share with others. In hindsight, I wish I had not and just sent those same funds into purchasing her 10 day cleanse or something more direct. It is a good book but circuitous and wordy so you need to be patient.
