Overview

This book is packed with the kinds of information women need in order to take the right steps to maintain or improve their health. From hot flashes to osteoporosis, the material is up-to-date, accessible, frank, and objective. At the center of discussion is menopause - one of the most profound, and least understood, phenomena of a woman's life. Manifested in various ways, and at various intensities for different women, menopause is rarely talked about in real terms - cause, content, connections, and consequences. Until now. As an endocrinologist as well as a mother of four children, Dr. Davis blends the professional and the personal to provide a fundamental understanding of self-care for women. Whether talking about prevention or treatment, she encourages a sense of well-being through awareness and the active nurturing of one's own body, to be - at every age - The Healthy Woman.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marianne H. Hutti, DNS, RNC, OGNP (University of Louisville School of Nursing)
Description: This book describes the physiological and psychological changes associated with menopause and examines the way menopause is viewed across cultures. It discuses the association between menopause and conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. Hormone replacement therapy and alternative treatments are also explored.
Purpose: The purpose is to give women the necessary background upon which to make informed choices regarding healthcare decisions about menopause.
Audience: The book is written for the lay public, particularly menopausal women.
Features: This 150-page, softbound book contains large print, and important points are highlighted in the text and tables. There are very few illustrations. The book contains an interesting chapter on alternative therapies for menopause.
Assessment: The content of this book is current, holistic, and presented in an interesting manner. The concluding chapter contains a section on commonly asked questions with associated answers. This informative book presents many aspects of menopause that women should consider when making related medical decisions. It also contains a chapter on "Planning a Healthy Future," which presents information on stress, nutrition, psychological well-being, weight, exercise, and periodic medical check-ups. This book is based on the premise that the needs of the individual woman are paramount, and that preventive measures, natural therapies, and hormone replacement are not mutually exclusive. It is an excellent resource for the well-educated woman; however, it is written at a college level and would not be easily understood by all readers. There are many possible choices regarding menopause that women may make. The information in this book will help women to make choices, leading to optimal health and well-being at midlife and beyond.

A comprehensive reference to the world literature between 1983 and June 1995 on using animal models to test radiopharmaceuticals for basic biochemical research or for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The core of the work is a keyword guide to selecting models: for example under arthritis are several listings for rat, each referenced to a work containing information and cited fully in the reference section. Introductory sections discuss moral and ethical considerations, training, designing candidate radio tracer drugs, and the principles of animal models and tomographic physiological chemistry. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
