Food-the "new" secret to natural and lasting good health and happiness.
For years hormone replacement therapy and menopause went hand in hand. Recent studies have proven, how-ever, that HRT is not the best option for relief of the symptoms of menopause, leaving millions of women wondering what to do to relieve night sweats, mood swings, insomnia, and more.
In The Change of Life Diet & Cookbook, registered dietitian and popular nutrition columnist Elaine Magee provides dozens of healthy and delicious recipes to deliver you, your family, and your friends symptom-free days and nights. From "Hot Flash Mochac-cino" for relief and prevention of hot flashes to "Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad" that will help carry you to hours of sound sleep to "1-2-3 Chocolate Mousse" that is designed to help you discover your lost or lagging libido, this unique cookbook will treat, delight, and feed your body and your soul.
With a soupçon of humor, a hearty portion of practical tips and tactics for managing menopause naturally without HRT or other drugs, and more than one hundred life-enhancing-some might say life-saving-recipes, The Change of Life Diet & Cookbook is the final word on cooking, eating, and enjoying yourself on your journey from peri- to postmenopause.
