    I have been up all night reading your new book and believe it is time for me to change what I am doing. I had a total hysterectomy last fall and have been taking Phyto B supplements (Bezweckin company) per my health care provider since the surgery. She feel that my hormones are in a state of readjustment and that the Phyto B is the thing to care for their “unsettledness”. I see thropugh your writings that there is so much more I can be doing and hence, give up the sleepless nights, edgy moods, sluggishness, and the blahs to name just a few of the many things I am feeling more and more. Please tell me if you have heard of Phyto B and what your take is on it. Thnak you for your time and thank you for writing such an informative, straightforward book. Cheryl Leach

  2. I’ll be bringing my long term East BAy friend, Dianne Hynes, and book trailer videographer, Dick Behrendt.
    See you very soon,

    Yes, Cheryl, and the Bezwecken product that you have been using is one of the more dishonest ones I have encountered. Please look at the NAMS, menopause.org, web site and find a certified menopause practitioner near you. Then you’ll be sure to get well studied and reliable hormone support by a practitioner who values good clinical science and health-protecting long term care. Best wishes, Dr. Ricki
