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.

About the author:

Dr. Vliet is a leading specialist in preventive and behavioral medicine and a long-standing advocate for women's health. She is founder and medical director of HER Place; The Women's Center for Health Enhancement and Renewal, Inc., located in Tucson, Arizona and Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.
