Description

"Hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia... How on earth do I cope with symptoms of the menopause?" There is no single answer to this question.

Based on up-to-date research, this book provides an honest account of the pros and cons of the different options for managing the menopause so that you can make an informed decision about the best approach for your particular situation. It covers hormone replacement therapy (HRT), bioidentical HRT, medication, lifestyle, nutrition, and complementary therapies, from acupuncture and reflexology to tai chi and yoga.

This is everything you need to know about the issues you may face during the perimenopause and menopause, how to support your body as the changes start, and the conventional, alternative and self-help therapies that can ease your symptoms.

'Megan A. Arroll and Liz Efiong have written a very comprehensive guide to the menopause. The information given should make it easier and less confusing to make an informed decision on what action to take.'
- From the Foreword by Dr John Moran, Medical Director of Holistic Medical Clinic and Specialist in Menopause and Nutritional Medicine

'The book is written in an optimistic and realistic style with a 'what can I do' attitude. Each chapter clearly sets out its aims at the beginning. Each chapter is split up into succinct sections and each chapter ends with a succinct summary. It's very easy reading with no waffle and is not full of medical jargon. It is a well-referenced book so you can easily go away and do further research...this is a really helpful guide for women during menopause and for those wanting to make changes to their lifestyle to ensure that the next stage of their life is as healthy and fulfilling as possible.'
- Julieann Roberts
