Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book

In her empowering and demystifying book about menopause, Dr. Love stresses that menopause is not a disease that needs to be cured—it is a natural life stage. Dr. Love offers a remarkably clear set of guidelines on the use of menopausal hormone therapy and explains what is known about other options for treating menopausal symptoms.

Live a Little!

In a collaboration with psychologist Alice Domar, PhD, Dr. Love shares how it’s ok to break the rules when it comes to women’s health. Perfect health is not achievable; and in this book, Dr. Domar and Dr. Love break down what need to be achieved versus what the “health police” say is good for you. The book breaks down prevailing health “musts” in six areas—sleep, stress, preventive care, exercise, nutrition, and personal relationships; giving you the tools to properly take care of yourself while not stressing about the little things.
