Your Body in Balance

The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health

The shocking new science of how hormones are wreaking havoc on the body, and the delicious solution that improves health, reduces pain, and even helps to shed weight.

Hidden in everyday foods are the causes of a surprising range of health problems: infertility, menstrual cramps, weight gain, hair loss, breast and prostate cancer, hot flashes, and much more. All of these conditions have one thing in common: they are fueled by hormones that are hiding in foods or are influenced by the foods we eat.

Your Body in Balance provides step-by-step guidance for understanding what’s at the root of your suffering-and what you can do to feel better fast. Few people realize that a simple food prescription can help you tackle all these and more by gently restoring your hormone balance, with benefits rivaling medications. Neal Barnard, MD, a leading authority on nutrition and health, offers insight into how dietary changes can alleviate years of stress, pain, and illness. What’s more, he also provides delicious and easy-to-make hormone-balancing recipes, including:
  • Cauliflower Buffalo Chowder
  • Kung Pao Lettuce Wraps
  • Butternut Breakfast Tacos
  • Mediterranean Croquettes
  • Apple Pie Nachos
  • Brownie Batter Hummus

Whether it's cramps, cancer, infertility, impotence, moodiness or menopause, Dr. Barnard masterfully navigates a clear path to your healthiest self."—Kristi Funk, MD, FACS, breast cancer surgeon, co-founder of Pink Lotus Breast Center, and bestselling author of Breasts: The Owner's Manual
"Dr. Neal Barnard is one of the most important authorities of our time on nutrition, diet, and health, and Your Body in Balance is the book that can and will finally change your health for good. Dr. Barnard walks us through the most common and troublesome ailments which so many of us struggle with: hormone fluctuations, thyroid conditions, chronic and terminal illness, and mood disorders-with an eye towards research and solutions based in foods commonly available to us. We have the power to heal our bodies with the foods we eat, and Your Body in Balance is the resource with the wisdom to get us there. With recipes included, this may just be the only book you need on your shelf in order to change your body, your health, and your life."—Mayim Bialik, PhD, neuroscientist and actor
"Finally, an intelligent guide book that speaks up about the potent role our hormones play in every aspect of our lives. As an Olympic athlete, I never really thought of this connection until I dropped all animal foods from my diet and turned to whole plant foods to fuel my training. Almost overnight, my adaptation to training sped up (which is a function of our immune system directed by hormones), my PMS subsided, my breakouts cleared up, and my ability to focus and calm my nerves greatly improved. Dr. Barnard takes the reader on a revealing journey to uncover what's really behind some of our most common physical ailments and how to fix them in the blink of an eye."—Dotsie Bausch, Olympic silver medalist, 8X U.S. National Champion, former world record holder, 2x Pan American Gold, and founder of Switch4Good
"Your Body in Balance is an incredible resource. If you have ever wondered how the food you eat impacts your fertility, erectile function, thyroid function, skin, hair, and so much more, wonder no longer. This book shows us how the food we eat can literally change our hormones, our mood, and our health! Happy eating!"—Robert Ostfeld, MD, MSc, FACC, director of Preventive Cardiology at Montefiore Health System in New York
