First let me say that menstruation is not a curse as our Grandmothers often called it and menopause is not an illness.
They are both a natural, normal occurrence in a woman’s life. There are scores of women who are living their mid-life well, are the picture of health and balance and whose hormones never give them trouble. They go through their monthly cycles and even though menopause, with nothing more than the odd blue day, a few hot flashes, some tears and maybe the occasional sleepless night. Women with an uneventful hormone profile are not who this book is written for. You see, for some less fortunate women, things can go wrong with their hormone health and they can experience devastating and debilitating symptoms of hormone imbalance. Hormone imbalance can occur when either the production or the absorption of our female sex hormones is interrupted for any number of reasons.
Many books discuss the science behind the normal biochemical changes in a woman’s body. This book, however, looks at things that can go wrong with hormones that throw off a woman’s balance physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. Hormones Gone Haywire! discusses the plethora of debilitating symptoms that can ruin a woman’s quality of life and leave her feeling frightened and weak.
I offer straight-forward, practical life-balancing principles for women whose experience is anything but natural and normal. The goal of my book is to encourage women not to settle into weakness but to seek God’s guidance to reclaim health and a life of greater balance and deeper meaning!
