Life-Altering Secrets from Today’s Cutting-Edge Doctors and the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Ageless

Today’s most trusted advocate of anti­aging medicine, Suzanne Somers, deepens her commitment to helping people lead healthier, happier lives by opening their eyes to cutting-edge, proven remedies and preventative care that most doctors just aren’t talking about with patients: longevity medicine and the more progressive study of bioidentical hormones.

As we age, certain hormones diminish, creating an imbalance that can set off everything from perimenopause to cancer, beginning as early as our thirties. This hormonal imbalance is causing many to feel depressed, anxious, fatigued, sexless, sleepless, and ultimately ill, sometimes even terminally. What’s more, Somers and twenty doctors in the field of antiaging medicine argue that the processed chemicals in foods and pharmaceuticals we ply ourselves with are actually slowly eroding our bodies and minds. So we’re getting slammed twice. From estrogen dominance to deceptive thyroid problems, people are suffering, and most don’t have access to the treatment they truly need to get better and thrive . . . until now.

Breakthrough explores cutting-edge science and delivers smart, proactive advice on the newest treatments for breakthrough health and longevity.

In addition to being a pioneer in a rapidly growing health field, Somers is a passionate, caring individual whose own life was derailed by disease and brought back to unimaginable, feel good heights that she wants you, too, to experience.

From the Hardcover edition.

I wish this Book would have been around about 10 years ago, then my Father would probably still be alive. I am just astonished at some of the illnesses we have and how simple they can vanish with the right Supplements and Alternative Medicines, This Book is Absolutely AMAZING and Suzanne explains it in such terms that everyone can understand. To Suzanne: Thank you so very much

4.0 von 5 Sternen It helps to be rich! 14. September 2008
Von juliejules - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Suzanne walks the walk for sure. The only complaint I have is that her suggestions involve thousands of dollars and really are only for the rich. IV Chelation costs thousands and is not covered by insurance. Stem cell preservation ($7500) and human growth hormone ($$ monthly). Also, you can't just take on her suggestions without the knowledge of a functional medicine type doctor. As a mom of 3 girls, I do and will continute to use BHRT with help from my functional medicine doctor but I even if I had the money couldn't bring myself to inject HGH. Her nutrition suggestions are spot on. If we only would all practice them consistently, we may have alot less disease.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This "breakthrough" needs fixing 9. November 2008
Von Michael E. Platt MD - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ms. Somers has taken an important subject and made it unnecessarily complicated and perhaps inappropriate/impossible for the average reader. If one were to follow her "breakthrough" recommendations, they would be spending much of their life detoxing, eating organic fruits and vegetables(and little else), exercising, getting lymphatic massages, having their root canals and fillings extracted, getting their electrical currents measured, setting aside blood for future stem cell needs(at $7500 a pop), having chelation therapy, taking HGH shots, and eliminating all foods that provide a modicum of pleasure in todays world.

Much of what is stated is important and helpful, but a true wellness book should have been more definitive about people getting off medications, not just statin drugs. A true wellness physician should be able to eliminate all medications that his/her patients are on. This is achieved by eliminating the causation of illness, a subject that is not covered in this book. There are many people who have difficulty sleeping, have restless leg syndrome, anger issues, road rage, fibromyalgia( which is not an auto-immune disorder or an inflammatory condition as stated in the book ), depression or IBS from internalization of anger, hypertension, a problem with excessive drinking,or smoking, or drugs in order to "chill out", anxiousness-type feelings, bipolar disorders, excess cortisol production leading to weight gain, chronic interstitial cystitis, etc. Every one of these conditions are caused by an over-production of a hormone that is scarcely mentioned in the book - adrenaline, the fight-or-flight hormone. The control of this hormone is imperative to achieving wellness; ironically, it is easy to do. Every one of the conditions mentioned can often be eliminated by lowering the levels of this hormone.

I am a wellness physician and very much supportive of what Ms. Somers is trying to accomplish. It does not have to be complicated, it involves sitting down and talking to the patient, getting hormones in balance appropriately without unnessarily high doses of estrogen(or any at all since most women never stop making it),removing medications, an education in nutrition, and the correct use of supplements.

For the record I would like to clarify some statements in the book: Estrogen lowers IGF-1 levels. It is dangerous to use these levels as a guide to HGH dosage when taking estrogen(as does Ms. Somers).
Progesterone lowers insulin levels, it does not raise them.
HGH is not an anti-aging hormone; it increases IGF-1 which speeds up aging.
Testosterone does not lower cholesterol levels, but is certainly cardio-protective for both men and women.
In men,testosterone can easily convert into estradiol, the cause of prostate cancer. Perhaps some mention should have been made about how to prevent this conversion.
Migraine headaches are not "a classic response to low estrogen". They are caused by estrogen and are eliminated by progesterone cream.
"A backed-up gall bladder" is not the most common cause of headaches.

Suzanne Somers began her book with the same quotation that I ended mine with. My book begins with a quotation from Voltaire who stated that, "Doctors give drugs of which they know little/Into bodies of which they know less/For diseases of which they know nothing at all".

5.0 von 5 Sternen WAKE UP TIME !!! 16. September 2008
Von lotstolearn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Eveyone should read this book!!!! It is a wake up call to all people to see what medicine in our country has morphed into. We have lost all insight into the way our bodies work and respond to the food we put in our mouths, the toxins we eat, drink and are exposed to. Our bodies were not made to ingest the chemicals and nasty oils. Read this book then start reading labels!!! And for the love of Pete, get your hormones checked if you are over 35!!! Why in the world would you not want to use natural bio identical hormone therapy to feel better and fight disease??? Some of the things that are cutting edge mentioned in the book are expensive. However, bio identicals, supplements and eating healthy is NOT! Find a good bio identical/alternative doc to handle your hormone replacement and help yourself. Don't let your standard medical doc talk you out of it because they don't know about it like mine did. The real wake up call from this book that everyone should take away is to be your own advocate. Don't just take what a doc tells you and believe everything they say. Check it out for yourself. Get off the pills and get your body right. YOU have to be the person in charge of your health. I have been through years of thyroid disorders due to the fact that the docs were using outdated info, failed to test thoroughly, and use common sense methods. Now I am scrambling to get it all back in order with great alternative doc. Lesson here, take this stuff to heart, do what you can to be healthy, spend the money on health rather than junk.
Suzanne has lots of info on cancer and treatments. We need to note how our medical society treats cancer and how they should be dealing with it. It is a very sad reality. This book has a lot to think about and a lot to act on. I highly recommend it to all my friends and family. Thank you Suzanne for putting yourself out there for our education.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What Your Doctor Doesn't Know 17. September 2008
Von Lanca - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Suzanne Somers has always been on the cutting edge of healthcare! She has a tremendous grasp of the subject, but her truly great gift is being able to transmit that knowledge in an easy to understand fashion. Her latest book, "Breakthrough" continues that tradition, while greatly expanding on important health information.
This book is the most advanced book Suzanne has written yet because she is keeping up with a rapidly advancing field. She adeptly covers every aspect of anti-aging and bioidentical hormone medicine and features expert medical mentors at the forefront of the field. These doctors have years of experience and base their practices on information in current medical studies published in peer-reviewed medical literature.
A very useful aspect of the book is that Ms. Somers organizes the information into eight steps to wellness and then elaborates on each one. She tells you exactly what it takes and what you have to do to maintain vibrant health! Then she goes beyond this information to give additional insurance for longevity like stem cell banking. As she elaborates on each step, she uses interviews with the experts in this field. I have attended many lectures by these doctors and continue to be impressed with their knowledge, integrity, and scientific approach to the subject.
It is very valuable that Suzanne represents wellness as a group of things you have to do on a consistent basis instead of a quick fix. We are too oriented to taking a pharmaceutical that will cure all our problems. Health is a process and a journey that requires a set of consistent actions and attention. It is important that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is her first step, because hormones are basic to all good health by keeping our cells healthy.
The information in this book is advanced medical knowledge that is not commonly known by the usual medical practitioner. Most of the information in this book is not taught in medical school and must be sought out by the medical practitioner who currently barely has time to see patients. Remember most of modern medical practice is disease based, so if you do not have a disease, but do not feel well, there is nothing your doctor knows to do for you. If you have a disease, medicine has tunnel vision of treating only the disorder without regards to the underlying cause or healthy options. Thank goodness for the medical vanguard in this book who are leading the way to a new concept of prevention, health, and wellness.
If you are experiencing symptoms of hormone loss and aging or just want to maintain the best health you can, then "Breakthrough" is essential information to be read carefully and completely.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great resource! 5. Oktober 2010
Von James H. Beauchamp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
After I finished her book on cancer, Knockout, I decided to read the one she wrote before . This one might have a subtitle, "practicing endocrinology on a different level." But most people don't know what endocrinology is, so that title wouldn't sell many books.

In a nutshell, the physicians (and others) interviewed are interested in keeping us healthy, so that we will live well until we die. This is a noble objective. Though there are lots of topics dealt with in the book, the theme deals with hormones, which are necessary to keep us alive. Think of a hormone as the spark in the sparkplug: it stimulates something, which causes a response. As we age, for whatever reason, our hormone levels go down, so the question then arises, what happens to us physically? Lots of things: our minds deteriorate, we gain weight, our skin wrinkles, we become forgetful, we have little or no drive or momentum, etc. With this in mind, is there anything we can do to supplement our diets, etc., so as to maintain a proper level of hormones? Answers to these questions are given in this book.

Since I have type 2 diabetes (courtesy of Agent Orange, Vietnam), I am well aware of what the hormone insulin does: it stimulates my system so that sugar in my blood is used to produce energy, or it is forced into my muscles for storage, it becomes fat and I gain weight, or it continues to float in my blood. If there is too much in my blood, I could go blind, have severe pain in my feet (neuropathy), have heart attacks because my blood vessels are weakened by the glucose, gain weight, and so forth. So I have to pay attention to what insulin is doing in my body. Should my pancreas not produce beta cells (which turn into insulin), I will have to take insulin shots to maintain a proper level of glucose in my blood.

From this, we learn that hormones stimulate reactions. All hormones work in a similar fashion: if your levels of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, are depleted, or out of balance, you will develop conditions in your body which are unwanted: your mental sharpness will not be there, you will be forgetful, you will not have energy, your sexual drive will leave, your vaginal areas will dry up, etc. etc. etc.

So where do we go to remedy this condition, other than locate an endocrinologist? The answers are in this book, but let me give you the bottom line: you must locate a doctor who specializes in "anti aging". Doctors who specialize in this arena will test your blood, and based on the results, will send you to compounding pharmacies, who will mix creams, gels, capsules, and so forth, which you will use on an experimental basis. Unfortunately, no "one size fits all" with the pharmacist or the physician. Over time, as your blood is re-tested, the pharmacist and physician will stumble on to the right dosages for you. When that happens, your hormones will be balanced, and you will feel like a new person.

There are conditions, however, to this regimen: you must eat right, and you must exercise. Which leads us back to the Mediterranean diet urged in the Anti Cancer book, mentioned below. In other words, you will not be given a magic pill, which changes your symptoms, but doesn't cure the underlying cause (this is the traditional Western medical practice).

This book is one of the most interesting reads I've had in a long time. Again, it is available in your library. However, this is one piece of writing you will want on your book shelf, for future reference.

And now the footnote about the Anti Cancer book (stop reading at this point if you aren't interested in the best book on cancer that I've read). Here's the skinny on the Anti Cancer book:

Anti Cancer: A New Way of Life
David Servan-Schreiber, MD PhD
Penguin Books

I normally do not finish reading a book in four days; this one was too good, and I kept reading. The book is about what we can do to fight cancer. Though the author doesn't touch on technologies dealing with pH balance, the effect of oxygen in diets, relationships with God, and some other matters which are probably important, Dr. David Servan-Schreiber ("DSS") echoes many works of others, but presents the material from slightly different perspective, all of which is positive and encouraging.

If you read any of the Amazon blogs or other book reviews about this author, his story is fairly well known. This French born psychiatrist practiced medicine in Pittsburg, and during one of his research projects when he volunteered to have an MRI, he discovered that he had brain cancer. The walnut sized tumor was removed, he recovered and returned to his frantic medical practice. More than five years after remission, and through a series of unique circumstances, he discovered the cancer had returned (he even gives a scientific explanation as to why cancers return after surgery, radiation and chemotherapy).

Though he underwent thirteen months of chemotherapy, and some radiation, he began to pay attention to advice nutritionists had been badgering him about for many years: change what you are eating. He has done so, and is now 18 years in remission.

We've heard all of this advice from others, but when you have cancer, you understand why efforts are made to keep our environment clean. Our environment, full of toxins and carcinogens, feed unwanted substances into what we eat, whether it is animal or vegetable or water. Though our immune systems are normally strong enough to withstand the attack, toxins can throw us out of balance, and we find we must fight unwanted diseases, because toxins have overloaded our immune systems.

Nutritionists tell us if we change our eating habits, we will limit our exposure to toxins, and our immune systems will do what they are designed to do, which is, guard us from the disastrous effects of these toxins. But our part in the equation doesn't end at the dinner table. We need to change how we live, by exercise and by changing certain attitudes.

One of the more significant observations he makes deals with the increase in cancer rates in western, civilized countries, since 1940. Although there are reasons for this trend, the bottom line is this: our natural immune systems cannot handle the onslaughts of these toxins and carcinogens, which have become part of what we eat and drink. DSS was skeptical about this notion for at least six years after the tumor was initially discovered, and since he did not believe in God, he had no source of security to cope with these emotional problems. Over the course of time, he learned that one of the staffers at the University of Pittsburg (where DSS worked) was discovering that certain foods actually help fight cancer. This seminal book came at a critical time for DSS, and in the Anti Cancer book, DSS spends a great deal of time in explaining why green tea, turmeric, and other foods actually kill cancer cells.

Though diet is important, he also stresses the benefits of exercise. One case in particular was very interesting, which dealt with a lady undergoing chemotherapy. She was advised to engage in martial arts. Though this may seem impossible, since most patients sleep for days after concluding a chemo session, she struggled though that program, and continued in martial arts many years thereafter. The exercise actually helped her recovery. Though DSS doesn't really explain the benefits of exercise, other than giving the results, I have learned from other readings that oxygen (which is produced in abundance in aerobic exercise) kills cancer cells; aerobic exercise delivers the oxygen needed to accomplish that task.

In addition to diet and exercise, he also goes into the psychological issues of the patient. If the patient has an attitude of helplessness, or from a Christian perspective, is a person without hope, that person's recovery will be severally impaired. DSS has adopted meditation, which he believes helps him tremendously. As a psychiatrist, who practices psychology as a subset of his practice, he is well aware of the emotional benefits of meditation.

DSS regards bleached flour and sugar as feeders of cancer, and cites lots of evidence to support his conclusion. In addition, he wants us to consume more Omega 3's and less Omega 6's. The Omega 6 diet inflames cells, coagulates blood, and simulates cell growth ( such as cancer cell growth). Omega 3's produce the exact opposite effect. Finally, he wants us to detoxify our own surroundings (quit smoking, use deodorants that contain no aluminum, watch our exposure to herbicides and pesticides, and so forth).

Though it's impossible to give an adequate yet short review of the book, here's the gist of what he's recommending: since we are all exposed to toxins and carcinogens, let's do our part to stay healthy. Watch what we eat (as he puts it, watch our terrain), don't become a couch potato (exercise 30 minutes a day; daily walks work wonders), and avoid stress (don't over commit). This book is written by a medical doctor, who happens to have a PhD, and who is also a scholar (that are over 30 pages of footnotes in the book, chock full of citations). Please don't ignore what he is saying.

A second footnote on cancer books: consider reading Suzanne Somer's book on physicians who cure cancer, Knockout. Stop reading this review if this topic isn't of interest to you, but again, as a second resource on cancer books, here are my thoughts about this one:

Suzanne Somers
Crown Publishers

I am a skeptic in many respects, based on years of observing human behavior, and living through a myriad of experiences. In this particular case, my attitude towards the author (and thus, this book) was shaped by her TV show and her outward appearance: how could someone with this "past" and "present" possibly be sharp enough to write a book about cancer? With this bias, I nonetheless read it after a client told about her husband (also a client) who had been cured by one of the doctor interviews in the book. She went on to say, they would not have sought out this doctor, if they had not read about him in this book. This incident piqued my interest, so I read the book.

I am still eating humble pie, because Miss Somers has collected a wealth of material, all of which dovetailed with what I read in the Anti Cancer book, reviewed above.

Though the medical approaches are dissimilar, the cancer patients (by and large) have been cured without radiation and chemotherapy. All physicians interviewed (and there are a lot of them; they practice in their home towns, all over the United States) decided not to follow the herd, so to speak, but rather, wanted to find out what really fixed their sick patients. The results are statistically speaking, "off the charts", but the bottom line is, the patients (perhaps a majority of them) were cured by the treatments fashioned by these creative medical doctors.

The medical community has not accepted their approaches to healing, nor have the FDA or drug companies. This is unfortunate, and almost criminal from a patient's perspective. However, none of this negative bias has dissuaded this group of "alternative medicine" doctors from forging ahead, as they try to cure their patients.

I could include excerpts from the book, as part of this review, but have decided not to. Instead, I urge you to read this book, and make your own decisions. The interviews are worth the price of the book, should you buy it, but if you are like me, begin with a borrowed copy or a library copy.

After you read this, I don't think you will regret being exposed to a branch of medicine that wants to find some other method of treating cancer (whether it be brain, breast, ovarian, lung, etc.).
