Screaming to be Heard:
Hormonal Connections Women Suspect and Doctors Ignore
By Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet
The book is directed to women between the ages of 25-65. She asks, "Are
you suffering from any of these health problems?"
Loss of sex drive, memory problems, migraines, fibromyalgia, interstitial
cystitis (or chronic bladder problems), PMS (getting worse not better
as you get older), food or alcohol cravings and chronic weight gain, sleep
difficulties (especially if premenstrual), chronic fatigue, extreme tiredness,
and chronic allergies or yeast infections
Additionally she asks the question, "Do you KNOW there's something
physically happening to your body, and everyone keeps telling you it's
all in your head?" Screaming to be Heard is a rallying cry
to every woman whose body knowledge has been dismissed as 'hypochondriacal.'
This book is more than just hormonal connections, it's a thorough study
of the feminine body. The chapter segments in the front of the book are
thorough, but the index misses the mark.
