Surviving the Fog, Sweat, and Tears of Perimenopause - Frank J Nuber, with Liabeth Tanz

4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
It begins so simply. -
One day you forget where you put your keys. On another day, you dissolve into tears over something minor. Then come the inexplicable physical changes - weight gain, hair loss, dry skin. What's going on?
You're not alone in wondering what could be happening. Many women begin their perimenopausal journey failing to understand the changes that may take place along the way, often leaving them questioning their sanity.
If you find yourself not sleeping at night, but wanting to during the day; forgetting things you shouldn't forget; craving sugar and carbohydrates and gaining weight while working out at the gym? This book will have answers for you!

In it you'll learn:
• What "growing older" means today- it's not your mom's definition!
• How women's bodies work - it might not quite be what you think
• Hormone Basics 101 - Your delicate hormonal balance begins to change as early as your mid to late 30s!
• How to recognize the changes that might be occurring

Throughout you'll learn ways to manage the changes in concrete, realistic and often simple ways. You'll also receive a non-technical education on the differences in hormone replacement therapies, with an emphasis on the efficacy and safety of bioidentical hormone replacement as the best solution to Surviving the Fog, Sweat and Tears of Perimenopause.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Frank Nuber, RPh has seen the difficulties of perimenopause in his 28 years as a compounding pharmacist. His interest in women's health issues, especially those related to hormone imbalance began in the late 1980s. After listening to countless stories of women, many of whom felt they were at the end of their rope emotionally, physically and mentally as they moved through mid-life, Frank knew he couldn't simply ignore their pleas for help.

Lisabeth Tanz is a ghostwriter and editor who collaborates with business owners, CEOs and others to bring their visions to life through written word.

MY REVIEW -
Just what I needed! So I am not going crazy! I know most of us know a lot of the symptoms of Menopause and Perimenopause (there are a few in here I didn't know), but it nice to have it confirmed! It's nice to know that we are not going crazy.

This is a nice short book that can be read in a couple of sittings (I say a couple instead of one because there is a lot of info in here, you don't want to breeze over it).

I think this book is great to just confirm what you might already know and learn a few new things. It has a few suggestions on what to do for each symptom, diet, exercise, drugs lol, etc. 
What I liked about this was that it was not overwhelming! And I didn't feel like he was talking over my head. I actually understood everything quite well. It didn't read like a medical book. It read more like... a handbook, a guide.

So... If you are nearing THAT age (30's, 40's, 50's) this is a great little book to have!

Thank you so much Frank J Nuber for sending me this book to read and review! I almost hate to admit - I needed it!
