The Wisdom of Menopause
by Christiane Northrup

Book Description:
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.

In The 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.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone
by John R., MD Lee, Virginia Hopkins

Book Description:
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 usual HRT only promises. "Menopause as a disease has been largely fabricated by physicians and the pharmaceutical industry," says this leader of a "quiet but powerful revolution" regarding HRT. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause covers the benefits of natural progesterone, the history and politics of the medical and drug establishment, the biochemistry and dynamics of hormones and how they get out of balance, and how to prevent hormone imbalance and stay healthy. Lee empowers you to ask hard questions of your doctor.
