I've been a HUGE fan of Shannon's blog, The Glowing Fridge, for years now. This book is the first of it's kind with a plant-based program to balance hormones. Whether or not you are vegan, this book would be immensely helpful to any woman out there. I love how Shannon believes in balancing hormones through food and supplements instead of pharmaceuticals or "bandaids". The book is so well written and breaks down complicated subjects like the female body, what happens in our 4 phases, and how the endocrine works in an interesting and easy to understand fashion. She lays out how AND why your mood/energy levels fluctuate during your cycle, how to feed yourself for optimal balance, and how to identify symptoms of imbalance along with a protocol on what foods to nourish you back. She even discusses what to beware of with cleaning products, cosmetics, and other disturbances that are in our environment. This book has everything!
As someone who was on the birth control pill (BCP) for almost 10 years, was diagnosed with PCOS 8 years ago, and am now off the BCP trying to find balance in my hormones; I wish I had this book years ago. I can only imagine where I'd be if I had this resource when I first started my period in highschool. By adopting some of Shannon's tips she's had on the blog, I already cured my PMS and night sweats in my luteal phase! This will be my go-to gift for all my girlfriends this holiday season!
Did I mention that the inside is as colorful and beautiful as the outside?! It is a joy flipping through these pages!!
Shannon's photography is gorgeous in the pages as well as on her blog. It is truly named "The Happy Hormone Guide" for a reason. I hope she writes another book specifically for Trying to Conceive and Postpartum. Thank you, Shannon!
