Getting older can be brutal—women gain weight, lose their
sex drive, experience hot flashes, suffer memory loss, become
short-tempered, find it difficult to sleep, and on and on. It’s
not so easy for men, either—they start to lose energy and stamina
as they age, too (and they have to live with women going through
menopause). After years of being thin and fit and full of energy,
Suzanne herself encountered the “Seven Dwarfs of
Menopause”—Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated,
Forgetful, and All-Dried-Up. Instead of living out the rest of her life
cranky, sleep-deprived, and libido-less, Suzanne set out to discover how
she could get her mind, body, and life back and banish those pesky
dwarfs for good.
The result is The Sexy Years: Discover the
Hormone Connection—The Secret to Fabulous Sex, Great Health, and
Vitality, for Women and Men
. In this passionately argued and
enormously practical book, Suzanne supports her own research and
experiences with the expertise of leading doctors in the field of
women’s and men’s health and sexuality to create an
inspiring, accessible call-to-arms to women to radically rethink how
they approach life after fifty, and give them the tools to turn their
lives around.
Suzanne has discovered that the second half of
life has been more rewarding, fun, and purposeful than her younger
years. The key to her happiness? Taking natural bioidentical hormones.
Natural hormones, which mimic the hormones produced in our own bodies
that are almost completely lost with aging, are the answer to the
symptoms of menopause that plague women. Recent findings from the
medical community show that synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
may be harmful to women—thus, thousands of women are looking for
what else they can do to alleviate their symptoms. In The Sexy
Years
, Suzanne comes to the rescue with a step-by-step plan and
detailed information about how women can take control of their health,
for themselves and for their men, including:
• What the
differences are between synthetic and bioidentical hormones, and why
bioidentical hormones help women lose weight, reinvigorate their sex
lives, and fight the symptoms of aging
• How doctors do not
receive adequate training about hormones and are slaves to the
pharmaceutical industry, and what questions every woman must ask her
physician about hormone replacement therapy and her health

How Suzanne turned her life around, with information about how often she
visits her doctor, blood work, what hormones she takes, how to get
these hormones, and more
• What male menopause, or andropause,
is and how men can also take bioidentical hormones and regain the energy
they had in their youth
• What a variety of specialists think
about natural hormones, health, and sexuality—Suzanne shares the
best advice from these doctors and provides a resource list of
physicians and pharmacies
With bioidentical hormone replacement
therapy, Suzanne has found the fountain of youth, the elixir that has
made her feel thirty years old again. In combination with her Somersize
diet and fitness plan, which she also writes about here, Suzanne has
never felt better. The beauty of growing older, she maintains, is that
you can combine the wisdom of age with the vitality of youth. Suzanne
makes it perfectly clear how women and men can regain their zest for
life at any age. These really are the sexy years!

Too much dependence on hormones and not enough on getting nutrients from real food

I understand the desire to remain eternally youthful; it's been a desire of mankind for ages. Stories about "fountains of Youth" and such permeate all our world's mythologies and nobody likes to face the inevitability of death. It's plain scary. So is the gradual enfeeblement that usually accompanies the aging process.

But people come on, you're taking medical advice from the star of SHE"S THE SHERRIF, not to mention THREE'S COMPANY. Are we all living in that much fear of nature's surest thing?

Stories about "fountains of Youth" and such permeate all our world's mythologies and nobody likes to face the inevitability of death. It's plain scary.

But people come on, you're taking medical advice from the star of SHE"S THE SHERRIF, not to mention THREE'S COMPANY. Are we all living in that much fear of nature's surest thing?

She also pimped the Thighmaster for years. How'd that work out for you? It was invented by Joshua "Young Pasteur" Reynolds, who among other things cooked up an alternate "improved" version of the Mood Ring.

And I'm not sure because my Dad willed his collection to the Church, but I don't think Marie Curie ever posed for Playboy. Had she, of course this would not have invalidated her scientific theories, but it probably would have hurt her reputation in the serious scientific community. And isn't that who you want giving you advice on bioidentical hormones and gene therapy, a serious scientist? Wouldn't that be more advisable that taking scientific and medical advice from the woman who appeared as a dead naked body floating in a swimming pool in the beginning of the 2nd Dirty Harry movie (Magnum Force) or who hawks garish Halloween-esque jewelry on the Home Shopping Network?

Hey her nutrition advice is fine and if we all paid more attention to our health then we'd probably all look, feel and function much better. And if she writes a book about how she survived cancer, which I think she faced pretty bravely, that's great, it might help someone. But this stuff is a little over her head. And speaking of her head, look at her face. She has obviously had plenty of work done, and poorly too. Poor thing looks like she belongs in a movie about murders at a wax museum with Vincent Price. She doesn't sport an air of wellness. Even her expression is pained. She looks like someone just broke a profound wind nearby, perhaps after eating a jumbo burrito with double onions and jalapeno peppers.

If you're going to emulate anyone from TV Land then pick Chrissy's Co-star, Mr. Roper. Norman Fell was well loved, lived an interesting, reasonably happy life and made a pruney face and hooked nose into a career. He also said this:

"If I could do it all over again, I'd be the mailman. I love housewives and I hate dogs. What more is there?"

See he had a great attitude, had a good time, a great sense of humor and outlived most Galápagos tortoises. He was comfortable with where he was in life and made the most of it. He didn't try to be Brad Pitt when he clearly wasn't

What more could a good Cougar realistically ask from a role model?

I didn't think I would like this book. I read some of Suzanne Somers other books, and I knew this book was about bio identical hormones.

Of course, the solution Suzanne gives is bioidentical hormones. I still don't want to take them. ...more

Other than not providing a realistic solution for the everyday woman, and for making a lot of doctors rich, I found myself disliking this book, the further the distance from reading it.

Oh sure! I was out there trying to find doctors to help me continue estrogen, etc, but it soon became apparent that Suzanne's book, however inspirational, was not going to spearhead a movement to get women to continue their periods after menopause.

However, Somers always wins for being the sexiest woman around.

My friend Diane recommended this book to me. A great, informative book explaining in detail the changes a woman's body goes through before, during, and after menopause. Suzanne openly shares her own story, and encourages women to live healthy, purpose-filled, happy lives...because life is just too short not to! While Suzanne's description of the "7 dwarves of menopause" is funny, the reality is not. This book gives you a possible answer.

I did not read this whole book, so I'm not going to give it any stars. I read the two sections on hormones, which I found informative since I take bio-identical hormones and I would definitely recommend these sections for those interested in bio-identical hormone replacement. The whole book is probably really good, I just am not interested in reading it all right now. Each chapter starts with hilarious quotes.

I heard about Suzanne Somers writing women's health books a few years ago and was entirely skeptical. But a friend recommended I read this recently and I have to admit it all sounds super compelling. I'll follow up with some doctor visits and try to find out if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy really is the miracle cure for perimenopausal symptoms that they're saying it is. And if it is I'll change my rating higher!

Having turned 50 I have decided to really manage my own health and be educated about the options that are open to me to maintain an active lifestyle. I wanted to learn about natural hormones and this was an informational book mixed with some fun.
I cherish the years I spent raising my children but I think the best is yet to come and I am going to be up and running.

Quote from book: Perks of aging: Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

3.5 Stars. This is my first introduction to bio-identical HRT (hormone replacement therapy); this book chosen for our book club by a compounding pharmacist. I was worried this would be a HRT infomercial but I found Somers' personal story to be honest and insightful. I am already entering this season of life so it is eye-opening to consider the options available. I will do my due diligence to find my own way to experience the sexy years.

I have a lot more respect for the author after reading this book. I am also thankful that she did the investigating and wrote the book. I was looking for more information on bio-identical hormones. I found a lot of good, helpful information on that as well as information from doctors who are more forward thinking. There is also a lot of inspiration, and anecdotal information that made me feel normal, lucky and hopeful for the future. If you plan to age, you should read this book!

My favorite author!!!!! Suzanne Somers spends an incredible amount of time researching the topic of bio identical harmones & women's health. ( I have all
her books & reference them often).
I recommend all of her books to women who desire to learn about the seasons of our life. Peri menopause, menopause & postmenopausal Seasons.

Written by an a vain and egotistical woman, I remain skeptical of what she says. Somers is a businesswoman and she makes money off of her name and books. I wouldn't be surprised to find she makes money from referrals from her website, which makes the entire book a money-making ad. If nothing else, this book is an inspiration to do more research.

It has volumes of info for women and men. I found her first chapter, and her experience of part of what she went though in that chapter- not as bad as she experienced it-for me...it wasn't that bad...more like a gnat flying around me...where is that bug spray...opps chemicals...and I'm so into detoxicing my body.

Aug 28, 2013

I can sum this up in one phrase: She recommends natural bio-identical hormone replacement for menopausal women.

Synthetic hormone replacement will not do. Natural bio-identical hormones only.

The book is nearly 10 years old, so I will continue searching to see if there is more up-to-date recommendations.

This is an interesting read for women about to go into menopause. She gives some good preview as to what is to come as well as advice about natural bioidentical hormones, the pharmaceutical business and how most doctors are clueless to this passage in women's lives....you need to be your own advocate is her message.

She must not have had any help writing this book. The writing is very poor. However, I still got many helpful pointers from it and even learned that men also go through hormone changes, called andropause. It just happens much more gradually than it does for women. This book helped me to make some enpowering choices.

This book contains SO much valuable information for women who are facing menopause and midlife changes. It is chockful of ways to improve health and happiness. In my opinion, it has nothing to do with sex, and everything to do with navigating the difficulties presented by menopause and its symptoms. This is a must read.

This was good in explaining alternative HRT. It probably could have been shorter. I felt a lot of redundancy. I got a little overwhelmed with all the talk of supplemental remedies. Also, if you had Ms. Somer's money that would help make this passage a little easier. Not everyone has access to these doctors and their treatments. All and all it was enjoyable and thought provoking.

For some reason this was difficult for me to get into. Dense type, repetitious; clinical, which has not bothered me before. I suppose it is because I've read quite a bit on the subject of hormone replacement.

Every woman should read this book. The high rating is NOT for literary excellence, but instead, for the importance of the information and the author's dedication to getting it to the public. Read the scientific parts. Some of the annecdotes are helpful.

Adropause - male menopause, is addressed along with female menopause. Gobs of info on bioidentical hormones vs. synthetic.

Good information on bioidentical hormone replacement, but not as much information as some of her other books.

A good look at bioidentical hormones and why they should be studied for women with hormonal imbalances.

Some good information about natural hormones for both men and women.
