Dr. Sara Gottfried left her conventional OB/GYN practice after feeling disillusioned about not providing long term resolutions for a myriad of women's health conditions with out medication or surgery. She pursued nutritional and stress reducing solutions through functional medicine instead. Half of the book is a plan to restore proper balance to hormones which should resolve troubling symptoms such as insomnia, hot flashes or irregular cycles, and the other half of the book is recipes and a nutrition plan to implement a structure in lifelong eating habits.
