This one hit my favorite meter! Suzanne did an excellent job compiling information, interviewing doctors (with summaries at the end of each interview), a few patient stories, information on male menopause (andropause), yoga, beauty (good haircut, makeup, dressing)--not plastic surgery.

Throughout the book there are mentions of how U.S. food is poisoning us. Our meat and dairy products are full of synthetic hormones and other chemicals and our fruits and veggies are loaded with pesticides and This one hit my favorite meter! Suzanne did an excellent job compiling information, interviewing doctors (with summaries at the end of each interview), a few patient stories, information on male menopause (andropause), yoga, beauty (good haircut, makeup, dressing)--not plastic surgery.

Throughout the book there are mentions of how U.S. food is poisoning us. Our meat and dairy products are full of synthetic hormones and other chemicals and our fruits and veggies are loaded with pesticides and other chemicals. Did you know that the entire European continent will not import our meat because of the harmful stuff we put in it? Some of our fruits have lost their flavor while in other countries their fruit and veggies enhance more meals because they are tastier and less harmful.

There is a patient story who became a strict vegetarian and how sick she became because our bodies were meant to consume meat--in small portions. Just have to find "real" meat and watch our portions.

Our fish (tuna, swordfish, etc) are also contaminated with dangerous levels of mercury. They get it because they are eating the small fish that hang out in our rivers that go to the ocean.

There's a section on the harmful effects of our environment, too. We are poisoning ourselves! Recently, there has been an increase in breast cancer in China and found it was not due to their diet, but their pollution. It matters.

Did you know that in European countries doctors practice homeopathy first, then, if necessary, they prescribe drugs as a last resort?

Suzanne mentions in several places that she is NOT anti-drug. She believes that in some instances a drug is the best course of action, but it shouldn't be our first course.

We have harmed ourselves by going to doctors demanding antibiotics for every cold, sniffle, etc. Taking motrin and tylenol, heck, using fluoride are not good for us. There are alternative methods that are healthier.

The importance of sleep is mentioned in numerous places. Getting to bed between 9 and 10 pm is a must and sleeping in total darkness turns on the much needed melatonin which not only allows us to sleep, but has many antioxidant properties. Melatonin is not available over the counter in Canada...It is a hormone.

She explains vitamins and the RDA's, etc. I was surprised that most multivitamins have extremely low RDA's. Bare minimums. Not near enough. The RDA for Vitamin D says 400 but in today's environment we need 1000. I heard this from my pharmacist, too and glad it was mentioned in this book. Always like to double (triple) check what I'm told...

Once again, this book blasts the drug companies for running our healthcare system. A person she interviewed mentioned that it started by the Carnegies and Rockefellers...and now the drug companies are locked in to our health system and because they cannot patent what is natural to our environment (and more healthy for us), they push their drugs--no matter the harmful side affects--to doctors who have grown to rely on them for advice, guidance and direction. What a shame.

I enjoyed reading the ideas and alternative medical testing that should be done for our health. Good luck finding a doctor near you who a) understands and uses these methods and b) your insurance covers it. Depends on the state you live in. Right now 14 states seem to be on the cutting-edge of medicine. The rest...not so much.

A senator in North Carolina had Parkinson's and went to a homeopathy doctor and was able to walk again. He told his story to the state legislature and they passed laws allowing homeopathy to be practiced in that state without constant supervision by non-homeopathy practitioners.

One doctor tells about the harmful affects of mammograms that has been at the back of my mind. There are thermoscans that are both better at detection and don't cause a tiny cancer to bloom by getting a mammogram. Yet this is not our "standard-of-care." Shocking.

When we get tests done that come back "normal" that may mean they are "normal" for what has become excepted for that age. Not normal in that we are in the optimal range. Cutting-edge doctors use natural methods and supplements to not just prolong our lives but improve and maintain our quality of life. It is not about stopping aging, but aging and maintaining a healthy life. Our bodies can do this.

Age with a smile and what a great time this can be!

There are newer, more advanced and less evasive methods that can actually serve us better, but most doctors don't do it or know about it because they haven't stayed current with the changing way of medicine. Slowly, very slowly, U.S. doctors are coming around and looks like medical schools are starting to teach more about treating the whole body and not MASKING one specific symptom with a drug that has a slew of side affects.

Throughout this book there are harmful examples of anti-depressants and I recommend this to EVERYONE--men and women. ...more

This is an amazing book by a totally unexpected author! I was on birth control pills for about 10 years with horrible side effects of constant migraines and other issues.

I also am a long term runner and was having a major slump in energy, nothing like what I was used to. I was in my late ' 30s and totally exhausted. Very strange. I don't think that was related to the pills, but it was just wierd.

I also am a long term runner and was having a major slump in energy, nothing like what I was used to. I was in my late ' 30s and totally exhausted. Very strange. I don't think that was related to the pills, but it was just wierd.

Not to mention I discovered that birth control pills taken over long periods of time often cause various types of cancer. Ahhhh!!! I was running for the hills (away from birth control pills) with no solution to the different physical issues I had going on.

I had no idea that there was a difference between synthetic hormones and bio-identical hormones. I had never heard of bio-identical hormones. Bio meaning "of the body" so bio-identical means the same as what would naturally come from the body.

A friend gave me this book and it was just what I needed. First of all, the author speaks in normal English, not medical terms. She walks you through every hormone, explains what it does and what the symptoms are if you have too much or too little in your system. There are interviews with multiple doctors on the subject giving their detailed answers and advice. There are lists of doctors all around the country that know this field and can help you.

You learn from this book the dangers of synthetic hormones. An example is Premarin, a very commonly prescribed brand of synthetic hormone for women. It actually is gotten from horse urine! And it often has tremendous side effects. Your doctor doesn't tell you that. Maybe your doctor doesn't even know that, but it's true.

I found a doctor in my area and I'm happy to report I'm pretty much migraine free. I get maybe one or two a year, not every other day like before. I sleep well now, I have more energy. I'm in my ' 40s and my body is transitioning well.

Hormones are responsible for a lot of your body's functions and can affect so many things: your sleep, weight, energy, mood swings, period cramps, migraines, the list goes on. This applies to both men and women. This book has data for both.

Before you saddle yourself with drugs and anti-depressants, get informed and at least see if this data makes sense to you. ...more

This was amazing with all of the information and symptoms tied to low hormones. It was an easy read even though there was a lot of information from doctors and information about the effects on your body. The suggestions seemed a little overwhelming at times even though I realize I probably shouldn't eat sugar at all ever for the rest of my life it still seems a little extreme but I can still take what I want from it and be better off.

Suzanne delivers some great insight into the world of hormonal changes, for women and men, and gives one hope that life doesn't have to be filled with the "seven dwarfs of menopause". She sheds light on the damage we have done to our bodies through skin care products, antibiotics to birth control. She also lets us know that we do not have to "settle" for the drugs and synthetic hormones our doctors like to push on us.

I heard so much about this book I had to check it out. As I suspected it's total hogwash. If you follow it you will end up paying a great deal of money to some very questionable practitioners, who are not likely to be licensed for treatments that do nothing. It makes me very angry that people are buying this stuff on the basis of a fluffy headed celebrity who claims she cured her own cancer. How gullible can you be?

I would not have expected to enjoy Suzanne Somer's books, but she is very knowledgeable about bioidentical hormones and I like her forward thinking about health and personable approach. This book is also full of interviews with knowledgeable and caring experts in their fields. Hormones play such important roles in our bodies that it pays to learn about them, and Ageless is an excellent resource to help with that.

I want to be able to receive bioidentical hormone treatment,I researched all about the treatment, but because I do not have any benefits (not sure even if it would be covered anyway?) and it is not covered under our health system in Canada (in my province of Alberta anyway)I cannot afford to get this treatment, so what to do?

A great book I read written and studied by a Canadian Dr. (gynacologist) It is called "Discovering your true balance with bioidentical hormones". It has all the information as in Suzanne Somers books, I just do not know what else I could do? If you are financially embarrassed like me, you are out of luck. I believe that this is a much better alternative out there, for so many reasons. It is just unfortunate that most of our Dr's are eating out of the drug companies hands and are limited in what treatments to provide, why can I not get the treatment I prefer, instead of taking prescription after prescription of more & more drugs? ...more

With all of the advances in technology and all of the information available to women, this book still manages to find a gap in the knowledge base, and fills it.

my you daughter says confuse-led - made up word- she is trying to sell her way , ( she hadn't known never having normal hormonal life, pill for all her life, hysterectomy- breast cancer survivor- bravo to her life style but nothing in common with normal people- so I don't now put it on the side or give it to good will. so you take your chances in life- rich to pay for your doctor to fix your glamour or just simple life with no drama.

please get rid of all the pills, and go back to the traditional Chinese medicine.

Don't creat a hug medical industry only to cheat people and make the situation worse and worse.

Almost all the medicines they have side effect, they hide this on a small piece of paper, and they try to show their shinning point to let you to purschase them... How dare you to eat all these chemicals that are not from the nature?

Somers addresses the use of bioidentical hormones. She uses the interview format with physicians which is informative and thought provoking. For women and men it is a personal decision whether to use bioidentical hormones and is not without controversy. She addresses these issues and believes we all can have a better and healthier life with them.

This book contains loads of information written in layman's terms to make reading fairly simple. It covers what I wanted to know about bioidentical hormone treatment as well as other anti-aging practices and treatments. It includes interviews with doctors who specialize in bioidenticals and covers topics related to nutrition, exercise, and male menopause.

Perhaps if I didn't know anything about the topic up to now I would have given a different review, but I felt she padded the book with reiteration. She could have said everything well once and had a 40 page concise reference work. She does have helpful advice.

Much of what Suzanne has presented here has checked out in my personal research. In this book she included the names and interviews with various doctors she has worked with. She might not be considered an expert, but she does have experts she works with and in that she is able to present an intelligent discussion for various supplements. I found the information very useful and have incorporated some of the practices and supplements for my own health.

As a survivor of an advanced stage cancer myself, I know the answers to health are not always found in the traditional medical practices. We must use our own research to evaluate our own situation and add or subtract things that may work for us as an individual. I look forward to reading more of her books as more and more medical practitioners are lending their voices to her developing expertise.

She includes real life stories; her own and others, and she also includes doctor interviews and their recommendations on foods and supplements to take that will support healthy hormone production. She even includes a large section for men; as they age, their hormones deplete, also, and the health hazards in not balancing their hormones (prostate cancer, for one). No matter what age you are, this book is a good read. It will help you understand your hormone production over your life span and how to stay healthy, avoid menopause (and male menopause) effects (or at least lessen them), and how to stay in balance at every stage of your life. It's backed up with science and she also offers a section on clinics, websites and doctors that support these ideas. ...more

Don't do it. This woman is selling a product. These things don't work. Read some actual science writing and do your own research. Vitamins are a multi-million dollar industry, just like the pharmaceutical industry they have lobbyists. The only thing this woman is interested in is selling her products and making money. She's had botox and plastic surgery and that is how she looks the way she does. Be skeptical people. Don't believe what she says just because she was on TV.
