Susan Baxter teamed up with internationally-known physician Jerilyn C. Prior to examine the controversy over the presciption of estrogen for perimenopausal women in the United States. They examine in detail reasons why progesterone is a far more effective and far less risky approach. Prior’s patients, like most women in Europe, find progesterone is the key to dealing with this life cycle transition. Contrary to Western medicine and in challenge to American medical orthodoxy, these authors do not see perimenopause as a disease.
