Screaming to Be Heard is a rallying cry to every woman whose body knowledge has been dismissed as "hypochondriacal," "neurotic," or "hysterical." Within its 20 chapters Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D., discusses and illuminates dozens of problems peculiar to women: physical, physical/emotional, physical/emotional/hormonal. A long-time women's health advocate, Dr. Vliet describes the often unrecognized hormonal changes that contribute to a wide variety of health problems that plague women in far greater numbers than men. These problems, women know, have physical connections, which doctors too often ignore; questions that the medical industry has failed to research and take seriously.
