Out of the 100 million women—almost 11 million in the United States alone—who are on the pill, roughly 60 percent take it for non-contraceptive reasons like painful periods, endometriosis, PCOS, and acne. While the birth control pill is widely prescribed as a quick-fix solution to a variety of women’s health conditions, taking it can also result in other more serious and dangerous health consequences. Did you know that women on the pill are more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant? That they are at significantly increased risk for autoimmune disease, heart attack, thyroid and adrenal disorders, and even breast and cervical cancer? That the pill can even cause vaginal dryness, unexplained hair loss, flagging libido, extreme fatigue, and chronic infection. As if women didn’t have enough to worry about, that little pill we’re taking to manage our symptoms is only making things worse. Jolene Brighten, ND, author of the groundbreaking new book BEYOND THE PILL, specializes in treating women’s hormone imbalances caused by the pill and shares her proven 30-day program designed to reverse the myriad of symptoms women experience every day—whether you choose to stay on the pill or not. The first book of its kind to target the birth control pill and the scientifically-proven symptoms associated with taking it, BEYOND THE PILL is an actionable plan for taking control, and will help readers:• Locate the root cause of their hormonal issues, like estrogen dominance, low testosterone, and low progesterone• Discover a pain-free, manageable period free of cramps, acne, stress, or PMS without the harmful side effects that come with the pill• Detox the liver, support the adrenals and thyroid, heal the gut, reverse metabolic mayhem, boost fertility, and enhance mood• Transition into a nutrition and supplement program, with more than 30 hormone-balancing recipesFeaturing simple diet and lifestyle interventions, BEYOND THE PILL is the first step to reversing the risky side effects of the pill, finally finding hormonal health, and getting your badass self back. 

This is the worst quality book I have seen in my entire life. Paperback is extremely thin and doesnt completely cover the pages. Letters are washed out on some pages. The item was shipped by INDIAPOST and I had to pay customs almost just as much as the book itself. I am very unhappy and do not recommend!!!

Gutes Buch! Absolut empfehlenswert und hilfreich.

Great for anybody having trouble with their contraceptive pill.

Mir hat das Buch von Dr. Jolene Brighten sehr geholfen. Bei mir wurde das PCO-Syndrom diagnostiziert, welches laut Ärztin ausschließlich mit der Pille behandelt werden sollte. Da ich mich damit nicht wohl gefühlt habe und der Diagnose misstraute, wollte ich mich selber schlau machen. Dr. Brighten beschreibt in ihrem Buch das Post-Pill-PCO-Syndrom und macht deutlich, dass PCO ähnliche Symptome nach Absetzen der Pille auftreten können OHNE, dass man wirklich PCO hat. Ich habe daraufhin die Pille abgesetzt und mich von vielen ihrer Tipps bezüglich der Ernährung bzw. Vitaminen inspirieren lassen und siehe da – meine Periode ist zurück und ich weiß ganz klar, dass ich eine Fehldiagnose bekommen habe! Sie hat mir die Augen geöffnet, was die Pille anbelangt.

Dieses Buch kann ich jeder Frau und jedem Mädchen ab ca 15 Jahren nur wärmstens empfehlen. Wir sollten doch alle wissen, wie die Pille in unserem Körper wirkt. Dies und noch viel mehr Wissen zum Thema Zusammenspiel der Hormone.Das Buch sollte Pflichtlektüre für alle Frauenärzte sein!

Informativ und mit einigem Witz geschrieben. Ich kann dieses Buch jeder Frau empfehlen, die in ihrem Leben hormonell verhütet hat.

Wirklich gut geschrieben! Super hilfreich. Bringt den Körper wieder in Balance! Empfehle ich gern weiter!!

A must-read for any woman! Seriously.
