Over a decade ago, Dr. John Lee first published his startling conclusions about conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT): synthetic hormones don't work as predicted and, worse, they pose a health threat to women. His findings touched off a storm of controversy. But years later, research has proved him right. Now millions of women concerned about aging are looking for alternatives to HRT, and finding them in natural hormones, and Dr. Lee's effective, commonsense approach to restoring hormone balance.Dr. John Lee first published his startling conclusions about conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT): Over a decade ago, Dr. John Lee first published his startling conclusions about conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT): synthetic hormones don't work as predicted and, worse, they pose a health threat to women.

The Women to Women clinic in Maine is considered the premiere center for integrative care for women for over 25 years, balancing hormones naturally. We may be biased, but we believe the strength of Women to Women is our ability and patience to listen. We’re committed to it. In fact, many of the developments we’ve made over the years were prompted by really hearing what women were telling us. For example, we discovered some textbook “truths” were really old wives’ tales. And we also charted seemingly unimportant factors that led us to see new connections and symptom “triggers” that could be easily relieved. A majority of women can find welcome relief from the annoying symptoms of hormone imbalances quickly. There’s generally no need for you to become a patient in our clinic or leave your current doctor. We do offer phone consultations to assist you.

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.

With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

“Plain-spoken, engaging, and maintaining a sense of humor throughout, Michelle Johnson’s book “Fighting Fiercely” provides insight into her personal struggle and pain as she wends her way through the often frustrating maze of diagnosis and medical management of endometriosis. Beyond this, however, she speaks frankly about the emotional and psychological toll it can take on relationships, as well as offers suggestions to partners, friends and family, about how they can be supportive. Her annual endometriosis awareness event, Fighting Fiercely, brings together a lively, multi-disciplinary group of speakers and participants that shed a holistic light on the topic from medical, nutritional, health and fitness, and spiritual perspectives. Ms. Johnson’s story is not an easy one to tell, but she does so bravely and enthusiastically, and with the ultimate goal of touching others’ lives with hope.”
