The Secret Female Hormone, How Testosterone Replacement Can Change Your Life
Written by Dr. Kathy Maupin, Medical Director of BioBalance Health and a leading expert in treating the
symptoms of aging. Co-written by Brett Newcomb, a licensed professional counselor. Their motive and purpose for writing this book was to give every woman over 40 the confidence that she will not have to lose herself because her hormones wane.
Dr. Kathy Maupin wants her readers to see her as a friend who wants them to have a full, healthy and wonderful life. She wants to empower women to use all the experience they gained in their first 40 years to continue living in a positive and passionate way. This book will inject women with a righteous anger that they can use to change their lives. It will encourage and inform women so that they can complain confidently to their doctors—who are practicing “safe” medicine that only treats men well and ignores the plight of hormone loss in women—and tell them that they are “mad as hell and aren’t going to take this treatment anymore!”
The goal of this book is not only to change the lives of women over 40, but to actually change how medicine manages women who are aging and loosing their hormones.
More About the Book:
Women approaching midlife are plagued with insomnia, fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, low libido, and a general sense of malaise. Yet no matter what they try, they are unable to find true (or lasting) relief. They are dismissed by doctor after doctor without a definitive diagnosis—told that their symptoms are either in their heads or just an expected part of the aging process. But Dr. Kathy Maupin knows that this isn’t true. As one of the country’s leading experts on hormonal balance—and as a woman who experienced these symptoms herself—Dr. Maupin has identified a debilitating and largely unknown health condition that is affecting millions of women: testosterone deficiency. While most people associate testosterone with men, it’s one of the most vital hormones in women, and one of the first hormones that women begin to lose as they enter their 40s. Dr. Maupin’s own research has shown that the symptoms of aging are initiated and accelerated by testosterone loss.
The book’s highlights include:
• Tips for dealing with mood swings, changes in sex drive, and maintaining healthy relationships
• Surprising information on the long-term effects and health risks of testosterone loss
• Common myths and misconceptions regarding estrogen and testosterone replacement therapy
• Questionnaires throughout to help readers determine their individual hormone deficiencies

Speaking in clear and practical terms, they show readers how to find the right treatment plan for their individual needs. This authoritative guide is bound to be a bible for women everywhere in their quest to understand the importance of testosterone in their own lives, so they can reclaim their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
