Through her bestselling books, groundbreaking PBS specials, and up-to-the-minute clinical knowledge, Dr. Christiane Northrup has earned a place as one of America's most trusted medical advisors. InThe Wisdom of Menopause, she once again challenges convention with this inspiring look at one of the most commonly misunderstood female health issues. The "change" 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. Through her personal story and many fascinating case histories, 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. In a book destined to be a classic, Dr. Northrup shows women how they can make menopause a time of personal empowerment and positive energy--emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger in both mind and body than ever before.

If you liked the "What to Expect When You're Expecting" series, you'll appreciate this book. There's something for every woman no matter her age or stage of life. Personally, I stayed away from the overly 'medical' or the overly 'new-age' passages, but found plenty of other chapters that spoke to my interests.
