Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892812370, Paperback)

The authors of Women on Menopause have turned to a topic of importance to all women, bringing to their subject a unique balance of clear, factual information and sound, supportive guidance. Their thoughtful discussion of menopause is augmented by first-hand experiences of physicians and nurses treating menopause and by the insights of women who are going through this transition themselves. These accounts are particularly valuable in that they illustrate the vast range of symptoms--from the barely discernible to the disturbing and even frightening--that can accompany menopause.

Practical suggestions are given for coping with the physical manifestations of menopause as well as your own attitudes regarding it and the attitudes of your physician, family, and society as a whole. The authors also offer suggestions pertaining to diet, vitamin and mineral supplementation, and appropriate exercise. Osteoporosis, sexuality, and hormone replacement therapy are discussed, and a chapter on homeopathic and herbal remedies gives alternative suggestions for treating the various discomforts of menopause.

This positive approach to a time of profound importance in every woman's life is one that should be read by women, their families, and those in the health and caring professions.
