What You Need to Know About Hormones and Depression

Research has shown a strong connection between estrogen levels and depression throughout a woman's lifetime. We now understand that abrupt hormonal changes can take a toll on women's moods and even cause serious depression. But the good news is that there is a lot women can do to moderate the effect of these changes.

The Estrogen-Depression Connection explores this issue and offers practical advice and tips for managing mood changes throughout all the major stages of a woman's life-from puberty and menstruation to pregnancy and postpartum, and from perimenopause to menopause. It explains in easy-to-understand terms what women can do right now to help balance these estrogen fluctuations through diet and lifestyle changes, alternative therapies, and medication.

I've read that there is a link between low estrogen levels and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. What have other people read?

This book linked low Estrogen to low brain Serotonin. But I've read a lot about " Estrogen Dominance" which says that too much Estrogen and not enough Progesterone is the problem.
