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 recipes Featuring 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.

In 1960, the FDA approved the contraceptive commonly known as ''the pill.'' Advocates, developers, and manufacturers believed that the convenient new drug would put an end to unwanted pregnancy, ensure happy marriages, and even eradicate poverty. But as renowned historian Elaine Tyler May reveals in America and the Pill, it was women who embraced it and created change. They used the pill to challenge the authority of doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and lawmakers. They demonstrated that the pill was about much more than family planning - it offered women control over their bodies and their lives. From little-known accounts of the early years to personal testimonies from young women today, May illuminates what the pill did and did not achieve during its half century on the market.

Poetry. "You can't teach God anything," Jeni Olin writes. An ambulance cools its jets in the arboretum, and she asks, "What have you got roughly in your breast?" The improvised reality series THE PILL BOOK disseminates a plethora of diagnoses and a handful of cures. Jeni's is lyrical asymmetry that wears its coronary on a "sushi-pink" sleeve, sitting shiva under love balloons, "helium-filled strays / traipsing around the sky clinic..." Nineteen poems call out to our punk hearts, Sofia Coppola, Ginzu knives, and blemish make-up. "All Things Considered" reads -- "People CAN change/ If they are just willing/ To drive to a pharmacy"

A Book That Guide You On The Pill That Help To Fight Against hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in women. HSDD is the most common women sexual disorder -affecting up to a fifth of women all across the globe - and that is what major drug companies have been going after. "This isn't always a made-up condition," There's a few debate over whether a drug can definitely help restore female sexual desire for those that are not sexually active. Unsurprisingly, there are numerous factors at play in terms of women and desire, inclusive of relationship problem, boredom and soreness during sex (something that turns out to be increasingly common after menopause, however can often be treated). "Too often, women sexual desire get medicalized," About 10 % of pre-menopausal women complain about lack of sexual desire. That is certainly what a lot of drug companies have been trying to find a solution to since they believe it would be profitable. As we all know that there're many reasons for the low sexual desire, including the quality of a relationship and the quality of a sexual relationship. It is also known that many women who feel less spontaneous sexual desire for their partner have no difficulty in experiencing sexual desire once they are aroused by physical contact or other forms of intimacy. Sexual desire is simply responsive rather than spontaneous for them. The Women Viagra is used for treating hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in women just as the normal male Viagra (Sildenafil) is alternatively used for treating erectile dysfunction in men which has been a contributing factor to various challenges in many marriages and relationships today.

The Birth Of The Pill How Four Crusaders Reinvented Sex And Launched A Revolution

A Chicago Tribune "Best Books of 2014" • A Slate "Best Books 2014: Staff Picks" • A St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Best Books of 2014" The fascinating story of one of the most important scientific discoveries of the twentieth century. We know it simply as "the pill," yet its genesis was anything but simple. Jonathan Eig's masterful narrative revolves around four principal characters: the fiery feminist Margaret Sanger, who was a champion of birth control in her campaign for the rights of women but neglected her own children in pursuit of free love; the beautiful Katharine McCormick, who owed her fortune to her wealthy husband, the son of the founder of International Harvester and a schizophrenic; the visionary scientist Gregory Pincus, who was dismissed by Harvard in the 1930s as a result of his experimentation with in vitro fertilization but who, after he was approached by Sanger and McCormick, grew obsessed with the idea of inventing a drug that could stop ovulation; and the telegenic John Rock, a Catholic doctor from Boston who battled his own church to become an enormously effective advocate in the effort to win public approval for the drug that would be marketed by Searle as Enovid. Spanning the years from Sanger’s heady Greenwich Village days in the early twentieth century to trial tests in Puerto Rico in the 1950s to the cusp of the sexual revolution in the 1960s, this is a grand story of radical feminist politics, scientific ingenuity, establishment opposition, and, ultimately, a sea change in social attitudes. Brilliantly researched and briskly written, The Birth of the Pill is gripping social, cultural, and scientific history.

From breast cancer and blood clots to depression and debilitating autoimmune disease, the health of millions of women has been sacrificed to chronic and deadly diseases In the Name of The Pill. This book highlights many of those ailments and examines the role hormonal birth control plays in each. Chapters devoted to individual diseases and conditions include lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn's disease, infertility, migraines, blood clots, diabetes, hair loss, thyroid and gallbladder disease. Yet, with significantly increased risk for all these conditions, the drug industry still tells us the benefits outweigh the risks. To understand the disconnect, In the Name of The Pill explores the history, economics, and politics that gave us birth control before it was proven safe, and exposes the powerful forces working to keep us in the dark.

Millions of healthy women take a powerful medication every day from their mid-teens to menopause - the Pill - but few know how this drug works or the potential side effects. Contrary to cultural myth, the birth-control pill impacts on every organ and function of the body, and yet most women do not even think of it as a drug. Depression, anxiety, paranoia, rage, panic attacks - just a few of the effects of the Pill on half of the over 80% of women who pop these tablets during their lifetimes. When the Pill was released, it was thought that women would not submit to taking a medication each day when they were not sick. Now the Pill is making women sick. However, there are a growing number of women looking for non-hormonal alternatives for preventing pregnancy. In a bid to spark the backlash against hormonal contraceptives, this book asks: Why can't we criticize the Pill?

"At least five scientists have been proclaimed "the father of the Pill." We learn here that the credit for its conception belongs to two women who "stand by themselves as the indisputable mothers of the Pill." One of them, Margaret Sanger, was already famous - to many, notorious. The other, Katharine McCormick, didn't even rate an obituary in the nation's leading newspapers." "Here is a spellbinding tale of visions and blindness, testing and trials, setbacks and triumphs; of quirky scientists who turned to deciphering nature, and drug companies who turned away. It takes us into the hushed halls of the Vatican, where celibates gingerly stepped around the Pill, pondering what it was, how it worked, and what it meant - until they came to the verge of approving it; and from there to the raucous explosion in college dorms of "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll" - and some surprising conclusions about the supposed causes of the sexual revolution."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
