In the groundbreaking book, The Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones, wellness expert, Michael E. Platt, M.D, provides readers with detailed accounts documenting the unsurpassed advantages of utilizing natural bio-identical hormones and their power to heal incurable diseases and maladies. Throughout the book, Platt explains in laymen’s terms, with the use of case studies and examples from real patients, how hormone imbalances are at the root of numerous health problems and how by simply re-balancing can help with the migraines, diabetes, osteoporosis, sexual dysfunction, fibromyalgia, ADD and ADHD, sleep deprivation, anger and weight loss, while helping keep patients feeling more youthful and vibrant.
Platt M.D., who has been a board certified internist, with 40 years of clinical experience, believes that a physician must deal with the cause of disease, not just the symptoms, in order to achieve a cure. This non-traditional approach, one not governed by pharmaceutical companies, offers patients a more holistic alternative to wellness. Bio-identical simply means that the hormone is identical to the hormone produced by the body; this more natural approach offers important therapeutic advantages and minimizes the potential risks one might have with synthetic drugs.
In Chapter Fifteen, ADD, and ADHD: The Silent Epidemic, he introduces a nine-year old boy whose mother sought out Dr. Platt after her son had been thrown out of countless schools for misbehaving. Believing that these conditions are primarily related to hormonal imbalance involving high adrenaline, Platt immediately recommended a diet devoid of sugary snacks and drinks that the young boy was consuming and prescribed a progesterone cream, to be applied daily to his lower forearm. Platt feels that ADD and ADHD are a matter of too little progesterone, too much insulin, and too much adrenaline. Ina a matter of 24 hours, the young patient was able to focus, concentrate and even completed his 10 page homework assignment.
In case after case, Platt, M.D., documents the stories of patients frustrated with conventional medical protocol, and who discover bio-identical hormone therapies to be the antidote for their maladies and the ticket to their overall wellness. This book is a must-read for anyone who is seeking a holistic approach to health and one that empowers patients to help their bodies heal naturally.
