Dr. Christiane Northrup’s #1 New York Times bestseller The Wisdom of Menopause has inspired more than a million women with a dramatically new vision of midlife—and will continue to do so for generations to come. As Dr. Northrup has championed, the "change" is not simply a collection of physical symptoms to be "fixed," but a mind-body revolution that brings the greatest opportunity for growth since adolescence. The choices a woman makes now—from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet—have the power to secure vibrant health and well-being for the rest of her life. Now completely revised, this groundbreaking classic draws on the current research and medical advances in women’s health, and includes: • a new section on sex after 50—and how, if need be, you can rejuvenate your sex life; • updated mammogram guidelines—and how thermography improves breast health; • the latest on the glycemic index, optimal blood sugar levels, and ways to prevent diabetes; • dietary guidelines revealing that hidden sugar—not dietary fat—is the main culprit in heart disease, cancer, and obesity; • all you need to know about perimenopause and why it’s critical to your well-being; • a vital program for ensuring pelvic health during and after menopause; • strategies to combat osteoporosis and strengthen bones for life. With this trusted resource, Dr. Christiane Northrup shows that women can make menopause a time of personal empowerment—emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger in both mind and body than ever before.

Menopause is not simply a collection of physical symptoms to be " fixed," Dr. Northrup claims, but a mind/body revolution that brings the greatest opportunity for growth since adolescence. The choices a woman makes now--from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet--have the power to secure her health and well-being for the rest of her life. Dr. Northrup shows: how menopause jump-starts changes in the brain, issuing a dramatic wake-up call to body, mind, and emotions; how to ensure the long-term health of breasts, bones, and heart; how the body adjusts naturally to changing hormones; why bestselling drugs like Premarin may not be the best choice; how to deal with metabolism shifts, weight gain, sexual problems, and appearance issues; how to negotiate the challenges of "the empty nest" and midlife marriage; and much more.--From publisher description.

Hormone Treatment Is Called Harmful-Washington Post, 7/10/02 Estrogen Use Linked to Higher Cancer Risk-Boston Globe, 7/17/02 31.2 million women facing menopause in America are concerned by these headlines. Most women today will live over one-third of their lives post-menopausal, but what about the age-old solution of hormone replacement therapy? In 2002 the U.S. government halted a major study of hormone therapy because it increased the risk of invasive breast cancer. Now, millions of women are left wondering whether they should approach menopause without hormones, suffering from hot flashes and low sex drive or take hormones and live in fear of being another statistic. Suza Francina has a simpler solution: Yoga. In this practical book, Francina, a leading yogi and author of The New Yoga for People Over 50, shows how yoga can be a powerful tool to help women turn menopause into a positive and empowering experience, both physically and spiritually. Included are easy-to-follow, indexed photos of yoga poses that alleviate key menopausal problems including: hormonal changes; hot flashes; irregular bleeding; fibroids; stress and anxiety, mood swings, depression and fatigue; bone loss; heart disease and cancer. Francina delivers a timely and truly heartening message to women: you don't have to get weaker or depressed when facing menopause, it can truly be an empowering, restorative time.

I was inspired by the many touching and creative stories I was hearing from women who definitely saw midlife as the start of the absolute best years of their lives.

From an “imaginatively twisted and fearless” writer (Los Angeles Times), a hilarious memoir of middle age. In a voice that is wry, disarming, and totally candid, Sandra Tsing Loh tells the moving and laugh-out-loud tale of her roller coaster through "the change." This is not your grandmother's menopause story. Loh chronicles utterly relatable, everyday perils: raising preteen daughters, weathering hormonal changes, and the ups and downs of a career and a relationship. She writes also about an affair and the explosion of her marriage, while managing the legal and marital hijinks of her eighty-nine-year-old dad. The upbeat conclusion: it does get better.

Menopause: New Directions. No two women go through menopause in exactly the same way. One experiences hot flashes that will melt steel; other suffer chills - or one of 50 other possible mental or physical changes. In the past, most women confronted by menopause had two choices: Suffer the symptom (usually in silence), or take a hormone pill. But thanks to the startling findings of the Women's Health Initiative Study, which concluded that the potential health hazards of using Prempro, an estrogen-progesterone, combination, outweighed its benefits, and the subsequent National Toxicology Program's classification of estrogen as a carcinogen, women - and their doctors - have been thrown into turmoil.

Now revised and updated, the comprehensive program for restoring vitality, sexuality, and health using natural hormones—just the ones each individual woman needs, and just the amount she needs. The decision of whether or not to use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during menopause is perhaps more controversial—and more confusing—than ever before. The HRT Solution provides a balanced discussion of the issues and, most important, offers a choice that goes beyond "yes" or "no." The authors explain the shortcomings of the conventional, "cookie-cutter" approach to HRT, which gives women standardized amounts of synthetic hormone substitutes or animal-derived hormone products. Instead, they recommend a program designed to meet each woman's particular needs. Their approach emphasizes the importance of testing and ongoing monitoring to determine precisely which hormones a woman may want to supplement. The solution lies in the prescription of individualized doses of custom-made natural hormones—exact matches for the ones a woman's body produces. The HRT Solution makes it possible for each woman to maintain a hormonal balance that is optimal for her body and her well-being, without the unpleasant side effects and potential for long-term health problems associated with conventional HRT.

A groundbreaking guide for women of all ages that shows women’s inherent moodiness is a strength, not a weakness As women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem. Bitches are moody. To succeed in life, we are told, we must have it all under control. We have to tamp down our inherent shifts in favor of a more static way of being. But our bodies are wiser than we imagine. Moods are not an annoyance to be stuffed away. They are a finely-tuned feedback system that, if heeded, can tell us how best to manage our lives. Our changing moods let us know when our bodies are primed to tackle different challenges and when we should be alert to developing problems. They help us select the right tool for each of our many jobs. If we deny our emotionality, we deny the breadth of our talents. With the right care of our inherently dynamic bodies, we can master our moods to avail ourselves of this great natural strength. Yet millions of American women are medicating away their emotions because our culture says that moodiness is a problem to be fixed. One in four of us takes a psychiatric drug. If you add sleeping pills to the mix, the statistics become considerably higher. Over-prescribed medications can have devastating consequences for women in many areas of our lives: sex, relationships, sleep, eating, focus, balance, and aging. And even if we don’t pop a pill, women everywhere are numbing their emotions with food, alcohol, and a host of addictive behaviors that deny the wisdom of our bodies and keep us from addressing the real issues that we face. Dr. Julie Holland knows there is a better way. She’s been sharing her frank and funny wisdom with her patients for years, and in Moody Bitches Dr. Holland offers readers a guide to our bodies and our moodiness that includes insider information about the pros and cons of the drugs we’re being offered, the direct link between food and mood, an honest discussion about sex, practical exercise and sleep strategies, as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies that can help us press the reset button on our own bodies and minds. In the tradition of Our Bodies, Our Selves, this groundbreaking guide for women of all ages will forge a much needed new path in women’s health—and offer women invaluable information on how to live better, and be more balanced, at every stage of life.

For much too long the traditional medical community has ignored, misdiagnosed, and mistreated millions of women suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance. Now, a world-renowned expert explains a safer and more natural approach to treating hormone-related conditions like PMS, weight gain, mood swings, and hot flashes. The controversy continues to rage like hormones: The safety and efficacy of synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT) versus human-identical hormones. In this second edition of the widely successful guide From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, world-renowned physician expert, C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D., and Genie James team up to challenge the continual promotion by the pharmaceutical industry--and the physicians they have brainwashed--of dangerous synthetic hormones. In this hard-hitting book, Dr. Randolph and Ms. James expose the shocking truth that for decades, whenever most women have complained to their doctor about menopausal symptoms, the traditional approach treatment has put both their health and their lives at risk. As a board certified gynecologist who has treated women with hormone balances for over a decade, Dr. Randolph contends that there is--and has been--a safe and effective alternative to synthetic hormones: Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Hormone Hell to Hormone Well shows readers how to: Eradicate a "one-size-fits-all" approach to HRT and empower women to discover and maintain her 'hormonal equilibrium' through her changing lifecycle Understand the new breakthroughs and discoveries in human-identical hormone therapy Naturally replace the hormones that have decreased with age--with the science that supports the health benefits of biidentical hormone therapy Enjoy vast improvements in mental and emotional health as well as resolving physical issues, including weight gain, depression, osteoporosis, hot flashes, low sex drive, and fatigue

The Wonder of Aging

Menopause and Andropause as Spiritual Quest For more detail on the medical
and psychological effects of menopause and andropause, see: Christiane

Bestselling author and renowned family counselor Michael Gurian teaches you how to embrace aging and life after fifty through this spiritual and comprehensive guide. The topic of aging after fifty is frequently only discussed in terms of health—what are the physical symptoms that come with advanced age, and what can we do about them? The Wonder of Aging, however, aims to look at aging in a new way—as something that is positive, showing how miraculous our second half of life can be. Gurian divides life after fifty into four stages: Stage 1: The Age of Transformation. This is the stage of life from the late forties to approximately sixty. Stage 2: The Age of Distinction. This stage of life lasts from approximately sixty to seventy-five. Stage 3: The Age of Completion. This stage involves completing our life-journey, both together (if we are still coupled) and alone, if our spouse has passed on or if we are divorced. He developed these stages in response to both scientific and anthropological information, and in response to the needs of his clients, who sought help in understanding where they were and what to expect in the second half of life. With updated research and anecdotes to help you discover a new paradigm for aging, you can understand how aging affects you physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually, and how to celebrate these changes holistically and healthfully.
