The Wisdom of Menopause: Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing During the Change
Christiane Northrup M.D.
055338080X
December 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
Menopause doesn't have to be a dreaded curse of aging during which we can look forward only to hot flashes and whacked-out hormonal mood swings. According to Christiane Northrup, M.D. (Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom), menopause often marks the beginning of a woman's most sexually passionate, creatively inspired, and professionally productive phase of life.

While this may sound like wishful thinking, Northrup backs up her good news with solid medical expertise. As an obstetrician and gynecologist, Northrup has specialized in using a mind-body approach to women's health for decades, which means she doesn't just write about hormones, but also examines how a woman's lifestyle, emotions, and beliefs are affected by menopause. With the right diet, attitude, and perhaps some supplements along the way, women can...

Your Perfectly Pampered Menopause: Health, Beauty, and Lifestyle Advice for the Best Years of Your Life
Colette Bouchez
0767917561
April 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For women, there's the quest for achieving the big "O," the worry about experiencing the big "C," and the fear of enduring the onset of the big "M." But for Bouchez, a New York Times syndicated columnist and award-winning health and medial writer for the New York Daily News, menopause isn't a time to be dreaded but one to be celebrated. "As lots of women can tell you, reaching menopause can seem more like a beginning than an end anyway-the start of the second phase of your life." Just look at Oprah Winfrey, Diane Sawyer, Diane Keaton. But there are still lots of challenges associated with the end of a woman's reproductive years. In what could be described as the bible of menopause, Bouchez provides a well-researched, informative A-to-Z guide on how to deal with everything from hot flashes and mood swings to...


What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM): Premenopause, Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty

0446673803


·
 
Book Review
Are you a woman between 35 and 50 experiencing PMS, migraine headaches, sudden weight gain, fatigue, irritability, tender or lumpy breasts, memory loss, fibroids, or cold hands and feet? If so, you may be experiencing symptoms of premenopause. Even if you're a decade or more away from menopause, your hormones may already be out of balance, usually caused by an excess of estrogen and a deficiency of progesterone, say the authors of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause. John Lee, M.D., is a well-known advocate of the benefits of natural progesterone and the author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. Jesse Hanley, M.D., adds sensitivity to the emotional and spiritual aspects of premenopause. The authors recommend natural progesterone cream to balance your hormones, eliminate premenopausal...

Kathy Smith
0446678716
January 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Fitness expert Kathy Smith has written a sensitive and smart book about what she calls the "half-time bell," also known as menopause. Using as examples her own hot flashes, raw nerves, restless nights, and memory misfires, Smith outlines an upbeat, trifaceted program for "taking charge of menopause." She addresses the three themes of midlife transition: hormonal symptoms such as mood swings and night sweats; the need to reflect and create a deeper meaning; and long-term health issues, specifically heart disease and bone loss. Each theme is explored using examples from Smith's experience, questionnaires, self-tests, journal writing, and relevant up-to-date information. Smith details dozens of strategies for taking charge--from herbal remedies to hormone replacement, from illustrated strength training workouts to Kegel...

Screaming to be Heard: Hormonal Connections Women Suspect, and Doctors Still Ignore
Elizabeth Vliet, Elizabeth Vliet
0871319144

Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Vliet, the founder and medical director of a women's health care center, believes that hormones play a significant role in women's health, especially in the perimenopausal and menopausal years. Varying levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can be linked to depression, chronic fatigue, migraines, fibromylagia, bladder problems, heart disease, and cancer. Vliet convincingly defends hormone replacement therapy, although controversial, as a corrective and preventive treatment, providing it is individualized and integrated with alternative therapies. It is unfortunate that Vliet's book is aimed at health care professionals and informed lay readers, because the medical jargon can be arduous for general readers, yet its detailed information could help women make informed decisions. A broad overview can be...

The Silent Passage: Menopause
Gail Sheehy
0671567772
January 1998
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
How are women of the baby-boomer generation handling the "M word," the change whose name they dare not speak? According to Sheehy's short report (expanded from her 1991 Vanity Fair article), many are utterly unprepared. The author ( Pathfinder ), who has been negotiating this passage herself, talks to doctors, nutritionists and a cross-section of women, examining both her own vacillation over estrogen replacement therapy and the more general questions of its side effects. We also hear from women who, having started families late in life, are catapulted from first babies to first hot flashes , and from such celebrities as Candice Bergen and Lesley Ann Warren. There are many frenetic and some encouraging menopause war stories here, but few accounts from women who experienced little difficulty during these years....

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone
John R. Lee, Virginia Hopkins
0446671444
May 1, 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Women considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause symptoms and health benefits should read this controversial, provocative book first. "Advertising and research dollars are spent trying to convince women that estrogen will cure everything from heart disease to Alzheimer's," writes John R. Lee, M.D., "but there is scant evidence for any of these claims and reams of evidence that synthetic estrogens are highly toxic and carcinogenic." Lee has studied the research and concludes that estrogen is not the magic bullet for protection against heart disease and osteoporosis, nor does it retard aging. Natural progesterone, instead, puts postmenopausal women's hormones in balance, says Lee. He cites study after study that indicates that natural progesterone, obtained in cream form, delivers what the...

Outsmarting the Midlife Fat Cell : Winning Weight Control Strategies for Women Over 35 to Stay Fit Through Menopause
Debra Waterhouse
0786884126
June 5, 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Menopausal weight gain is "the most stubborn weight gain you'll ever experience," says Debra Waterhouse in Outsmarting the Midlife Fat Cell. This book follows her bestselling Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell, customizing the program for women ages 35 to 55. The book is easy to read, makes difficult concepts simple to understand, and has helpful checklists to keep you on track.

Outsmarting the Midlife Fat Cell explains the role of fat cells before and during menopause and why midlife weight gain is such a pervasive problem. A woman's 30 billion fat cells get bigger and "more stubborn" during midlife, explains Waterhouse, because when they detect a lowered estrogen level, they step in to produce more estrogen and get larger as they get more active. Dieting doesn't work; instead of slimming your body, it...
