Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I highly recommend this book to women who want to empower themselves with information, as Dr. Thacker says, “to gain control over our health, feel good about ourselves as our bodies change and mature, and enjoy our relationships more fully.” Amen, Holly!” —Pam Peeke, Prevention.com

“Midlife women who are feeling betrayed by the unpredictability of their bodies and overwhelmed by the conflicting claims of the media will find clarity and empowerment in the pages of this book. Dr. Thacker demystifies menopause by using simple language to explain how the decline of estrogen levels can manifest itself as a broad array of symptoms, and she offers practical strategies for coping with those symptoms. The author acknowledges that each woman approaches menopause with a unique set of challenges—genetic risk factors, surgical history, medical issues, family stressors—and she invites the reader to explore different options for meeting those challenges....This is an empowering message for women of all ages.” —Elizabeth H. B. Mandell, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Virginia NAMS Consumer Education Committee

“Dr. Thacker is the quintessential physician-advocate for women and our health. Her advice is sound, thorough, and easy to follow. Dr. Thacker empowers you to make good choices at so many levels.” —Sylvia Morrison, Marketing Executive

The Cleveland Clinic Guide to Menopause is rich with practical, scientifically grounded advice for healthy living. It’s filled with sound strategies for dealing with the challenges of aging gracefully. This is a must-read that will help to empower women at midlife.” —Wendy Klein, MD, FACP, Associate Professor of Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, and Deputy Editor, Journal of Women’s Health

    Dr Holly Thacker: the menopause maven

    If you are like me, when you start having menopause symptoms, you think using hormone replacement therapy could be cancer causing until you read this book. This well organized guide will help put your mind at ease. Holly Thacker uses language that any woman will be able to understand and can certainly relate to. This book does not need to be read cover to cover. By just skimming through the book, you can look up any question that you have. She goes into other problems that you may not think are menopause related, but are important for every woman during this phase of life. For example, the book goes into detail about skin care, sleeping, and healthy eating. You can learn something new every time you open it up.
