Product Description:

Written by a Canadian Naturopathic doctor, this is the first book to offer natural solutions to maintaining optimum health throughout the transitional years. It explores the current myths and misinformation surrounding many of the traditional medical treatments for menopause and encourages readers to focus on prevention and overall good health, rather than relying on traditional and potentially dangerous hormone or drug treatment.

You will discover:

  • how proper diet, lifestyle, and physical and spiritual exercise can better prepare women for the transitional years
  • how plant-based compounds, such as soy isoflavones, can offer safe and effective treatment for hormonal symptoms related to peri-menopause, menopause, PMS, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis
  • more information on the multi-dimensional aspects of our health, and ways to develop a well-rounded approach to long-term wellness.

This book takes the position that the menopause transition does not have to represent the beginning of the end for most women. In fact, by maintaining a solid foundation of good health and nutrition in both the peri-menopause and menopause years, many of the problems associated with the transition can be drastically reduced. It can truly be seen as a new beginning.
