The Estrogen Alternative: What Every Woman Needs to Know about Hormone Replacement Therapy and SERMS, the New Estrogen Substitutes
Every postmenopausal woman must face the estrogen dilemma. Replacing estrogen lowers the incidence of heart disease, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease -- but it also increases the chance of breast and uterine cancer. Until now...New synthetic hormones. SERMs, provide many of the benefits of estrogen without the risks. Written by Steven R. Goldstein, M.D., a world-renowned obstetrician and gynecologist, and Laurie Ashner, a prominent journalist and therapist, The Estrogen Alternative is the first book to reveal the latest advances in the field. This essential and accessible guide -- updated with new material for the paperback edition -- answers important questions about traditional estrogen therapy, herbal estrogen therapy and SERMs, as well as which form of hormone replacement therapy is best for one's individual needs.
