“Hormone balance is within reach, and this is the definitive guide for reaching that goal.”—David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain
As women approach menopause, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation: metabolic stall and weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, low libido, and painful sex. Too often, doctors tell us that these discomforts are to be expected and that we will have to wait them out during “the change”; some of us even agree to be unnecessarily medicated. But Dr. Anna Cabeca’s research and experience with thousands of her patients show that there is a fast-acting and nonpharmaceutical way to dramatically and permanently alleviate these symptoms.
The Hormone Fix introduces Dr. Cabeca’s unique Keto-Green protocol, a plan that pairs the hallmarks of ketogenic (low-carb/high fat) eating with diet and lifestyle changes that bring the body’s cellular pH to a healthy alkaline level. The proven result: balanced cortisol and reduced output of insulin, the hormones most responsible for belly fat and weight gain, plus an increase in oxytocin, the “love and happiness” hormone. Whether you are perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal, The Hormone Fix offers an easy-to-follow program, including
• a 10-day quick-start detox diet to jump-start weight loss and reduce symptoms immediately
• daily meal plans and weekly shopping lists to take the guesswork out of a month’s worth of Keto-Green eating
• 65 delicious and easy-to-make recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, smoothies, and soups
• detailed information on vitamin and mineral supplementation that optimizes hormone balance
• simple self-assessments and recommended optional lab testing for a better understanding of your hormonal status
• tested and trusted stress-reduction and oxytocin-amplifying advice and techniques
With The Hormone Fix you can expect to trim down, tap into new and unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy, and completely revitalize your life! Ready for your fix?
“The Hormone Fix is a treasure trove of accurate and user-friendly information that all women who are suffering during menopause need to know and apply.”—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of The Wisdom of Menopause

Nutty Keto-Green Smoothie
Makes 1 serving
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
1 cup fresh spinach
1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup cashew milk (or other nut milk)
1–2 tablespoons powdered maca (optional) or scoops Mighty Maca Plus (optional)
Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Spinach
Makes 2 servings
In a saucepan, cook the spinach, drain well, and return it to the pan. Place the salmon in the pan next to the spinach.Use an egg poacher to poach the eggs according to the manufacturer’s directions. If you don’t have an egg poacher, add enough water to two medium saucepans to fill them about 2 inches deep. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons vinegar to each pan and bring to a gentle simmer. Crack 2 eggs into two separate small bowls, keeping the yolks intact.When the water is simmering, use the handle of a spatula or spoon to quickly stir the water (one pan at a time) in one direction until the water is swirling in the pan. Gently drop 1 egg at a time into the center of the whirlpool in each pan. The swirling water will help prevent the white from feathering or spreading out in the pan. Cover and let the eggs poach, setting your timer for 5 minutes; leave the eggs untouched while poaching. Repeat for the second serving of eggs.
While the eggs are poaching, gently warm the spinach, smoked salmon, and Hollandaise sauce.Put one thick tomato slice on each of two plates.Divide the warm spinach between the two plates.Top each with half the salmon.When the eggs are ready, remove them from the water with a slotted spoon, place two poached eggs on top of the spinach and salmon, and drizzle with Hollandaise.
For the Hollandaise: Blend the egg yolks and juice with a whisk or fork. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Slowly add the melted butter so as not to break the sauce, whisking continually.
2 cups fresh chopped spinach, tightly packed
4 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced
4 large organic free-range eggs
1 large tomato
1/2 cup Hollandaise sauce (recipe below)
