It is a book for women about determining any hormone imbalance and then trying to correct it with mostly diet, herbs and lifestyle changes (hormones only if all else fails). She is not paleo, but seems to be into low-carb, whole-foods and organic. There is an extensive quiz (partially also on her website) that you take at the beginning that helps you determine if you have any imbalance, followed by protocols to follow to correct it.
I looked forward to the book coming out (less than a month ago), because I am 48 and feel like who knows what's around the corner, but her website and various emails she sends undercut my faith in her because of the infomercial five-things-you-need-to-know-just-click-here! vibe. I know (she is friends with my sister) that all these wealthy women and celebrities have her on retainer to assess their hormonal profile monthly, so she must be very good. She is also a yogi and I like her incorporation of yogic techniques.
So I feel mixed and am curious if anyone else has checked out this book and what your thoughts were.

I haven't seen the book, but I have had great success with hormonal balance through eating a Primal diet for the last 3 years.
50 and still cycling regularly, no perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, etc.
I used Pro-gest cream for a few months when I first went Primal & was have symptoms, but I didn't have huge results at the time and haven't used it in over a year now.
Here's a blog post I wrote that may be helpful:
