What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Series- John R Lee MD

It's a good thing I read this in the middle of my Biology class.
In the series of books that begin What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About... by Dr. John R.  Lee, he explains hormones, breast cancer, menopause, and pre-menopause, generally how hormones effect so much of our lives and daily activities. While there is plenty of good information even without a biology class, it was great to read it while learning about the very things he described. These books contains lists of symptoms arranged so you can diagnose your hormone problems better than your doctor. Sure enough my doctor's only option was to put me on the pill to regulate my fluctuating hormones. Dr Lee explains the dangers of patented hormones and why so called "natural" is not always better. His definition of natural blocks hormones that do not naturally occur in a woman's body (like those found in horse urine). He explains the balancing act of estrogen and progesterone and why synthetic hormones cause so much havoc in our bodies. He also explains the problem with xenoestrogens, which are false chemical estrogens abundant in today's chemical laden environment. (I can't wait to replace my carpet with wood floors now!)
Dr John Lee's series of books What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About... are great books, a must read for every thirty-something or older woman!

I'm Free!

Wow! I'm done with Biology. Whew! This class has been so hard. I am just not scientifically minded.

It was very interesting to learn about cells and specifically about cancer. The most useful thing though was to understand cell metabolism. I had more than one opportunity to need what I was learning within the last eight weeks. I read a book about hormones and the difference in drug patented hormones and normal hormones.(What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause by John R. Lee MD) It was an Ah ha moment. Now I know what happened to me when I took that Depro Provera shot after having Megan. It really threw me for a loop! My hubby would agree~ I was loopy~!
And I understand my son's diagnosis and why he looks yellow at times. It's amazing how God puts us in the right timing. I could not have understood all this before this class, and in a few weeks I will have forgotten most of it and would not have understood it. I thought I was procrasinating.... Really I just wasn't ready! I am glad I applied myself on this subject even though I thought it was not useful. It was hard to understand but very useful. Some of it I'm still fuzzy on (ok ALOT of it I'm still VERY fuzzy on).
Praise God for his wonderful timing on something that might seem so insignificant!
