I have been educating myself about menopause since I hit 40. This book covers everything I discovered plus gives a spiritual side that medical literature never covers. It is full of excellent practical advice. Dr. Northrup combines traditional medicine with other 'medicines' in a nice balance. 'THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE' and ' Understanding: Train of Thought' are life changing books. I can't recommend them too highly!

Poorly Written and Unorganized

This book was horrible! Dr. Northup and Oprah need to be ashamed for recommending it. I am an avid reader and found it to be difficult to follow and disjointed. I found more information from other books and the internet. This was a complete waste of my money.

    Educational

    This has been one of the most insightful of all the books that talk about this subject. There are wonderful ideas and thoughts about menapause here that can help every woman. While not every suggestion is right for every woman, there is a wealth of information.

    Mind-Body Approach to Menopause

    Menopause doesn't have to be a dreaded curse of aging during which we can look forward only to hot flashes and whacked-out hormonal mood swings. According to Christiane Northrup, M.D., menopause often marks the beginning of a woman's most sexually passionate, creatively inspired, and professionally productive phase of life. While this may sound like wishful thinking, Northrup backs up her good news with solid medical expertise. As an obstetrician and gynecologist, Northrup has specialized in using a mind-body approach to women's health for decades, which means she doesn't just write about hormones, but also examines how a woman's lifestyle, emotions, and beliefs are affected by menopause.

    Great info about menopause

    This is an excellent resource to get more familiar with what is happening during menopause and how to balance your life. It touches options, including not having to take pills.
