Dr. Natasha Turner’s Bestselling Books
Dr. Turner ND’s first book, The Hormone Diet, became a #1 bestseller within one week of its release in the spring of 2009 and was the top selling health book in Canada for that year. The book is based on her successful clinical approach for creating hormonal balance to gain strength, lose fat and live younger longer. Her second book, The Supercharged Hormone Diet, an accelerated 30 day plan to restore your metabolism and look younger longer, became a #1 national bestseller on its first day of release in March 2011. Upon its USA release in November 2011 it became a New York Times bestseller. Her third book, The Carb Sensitivity Program: Discover Which Carbs Will Curb Your Cravings, Control Your Appetite and Banish Belly Fat made the bestseller list the first week of its release in March 2012. In December 2016, Dr. Turner ND released her fourth book The Hormone Boost, which became a #1 bestseller as well. It is a simple and effective wellness plan that harnesses the power of the six hormones linked to weight loss, strength, and energy.
The Hormone Diet lays out a foolproof plan to balance your life, one hormone at a time.
Along with advice for weight loss, Dr. Natasha Turner provides recommendations for anti-inflammatory detox, nutritional supplements, exercise, sleep, stress management, toxin-free skin care, and natural hormone replacement combined with a diet plan—all incorporated into a 3-step wellness program focused on the essentials of hormone balance for lasting health.
Many of us experience signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance every day. Do you have trouble dragging yourself out of bed in the morning? Ever have an uncontrollable sugar craving at 3 p.m.? Chronic headaches? Lack of energy? Do you get stressed just sitting in your office? Our bodies are wired to send us signals when something isn’t right, but often we’re too busy to hear them. Compound ing the problem is a lack of understanding about the consequences if these symptoms are left unaddressed. Without hormonal balances, we are more likely to succumb to many diseases and illnesses. (Amazon book description)
Supercharged Hormone Diet: A 30-Day Accelerated Plan to Lose Weight, Restore Metabolism & Feel Younger Longer
Bestselling author and naturopathic doctor Natasha Turner returns with a follow-up to her phenomenal #1 bestselling first book. An instant bestseller, The Supercharged Hormone Diet gives us the information we need to get our hormones back on track — in thirty days flat. The Hormone Diet taught us the ins and outs of how and why our hormones play the biggest part in our weight-loss woes — a valuable resource and diet guide to our hormones and how they affect our health. US News listed The Supercharged Hormone Diet 32nd on the Best Overall Diets overall.
The Carb Sensitivity Program: Discover Which Carbs Will Curb Your Cravings, Control Your Appetite, and Banish Belly Fat
A no-carb diet may lead to weight loss—at first—but ultimately this approach fails for most people. Why? Because it’s not sustainable, and since nothing has been done to improve carb tolerance, once carbs are introduced people experience bloating, cravings, and rebound weight gain, plus another 5 to 10 pounds. The vast majority of us have different degrees of sensitivity to carbohydrates without realizing it. For some people, healthy carbs such as carrots, black beans, and quinoa are what’s making them fat! The Carb Sensitivity Program by Natasha Turner, ND is more than a diet. It’s a personalized carb rehab plan that helps readers identify the types of carbs that work best with their bodies, remove the ones they’re sensitive to, and repair their metabolisms so they can safely eat those carbs again. The result: more energy, better health, and a slimmer body—for life. (Amazon book description)
When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood, and strength, who doesn’t need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost/The Hormone Fix represents a breakthrough by offering, for the first time, a weight loss and wellness solution that focuses on a combination of six specific hormones.
Unlike the methods shared in Dr. Turner ND’s previous books, which focused on identifying and solving hormonal imbalances, this groundbreaking and proven plan suits everyone–not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption–by optimizing what’s right rather than correcting what’s wrong.
