I just read a very interesting book called "8 Weeks to Vibrant Health". It was written by Dr. Hyla Cass. I believe she is originally from Canada.

I had read about it in Women's World magazine and found it had a lot of great information related to women's health issues and the common everyday things to correct or cure them. The focus of the book is mainly women's health issues but there are some generic issues as well. I was interested in reading this book because I had heard it contained some good information and there are alternative treatments other than pills from the pharmacy to help with some of the conditions.

I am post menopausal now, but wish I had read this book some years back when I was having problems with my periods.

If any of you have read this book, also wonder what you think of it as well.

Joyce, I haven't read this book or heard of it but thank you for posting this. It sounds like a very informative book. I had a hysterectomy a little over a year ago and have had ALL kinds of changes take place since. Thanks again for the info about the book. I'll definately put that one on my must read list!

Yes, I thought that it was not only interesting but had a lot of commonsense information and common everyday thinks like vitamins and supplements that can help with things. So many of us are looking for something like that which have a proven track record because the doctors seem to just want to hand out pills these days.

I found it at my local library so didn't have to purchase it first but probably will get a copy to keep on hand.

When I had my period problems, all my doctor could say was that he didn't know the cause of why I was getting them. I was so tired of that and frustrated. Then he said "well, we could always do a hysterectomy". I told him no, and to keep trying to find an answer. I was finally able to get pregnant again and have another child and if I had gone along with his "solution" we never would have had him. Finally in about 1998, he said "well, there is one thing that might help". It was natural progesterone and it worked like a charm. I guess the runaway heavy periods often are the result of too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. Stress can do this as well as other things. I was so mad it took him years to mention it but so grateful that it worked.

This book talks about a lot of women's health issues and I think I will get a copy for my daughter as well!
