Product Description

Review

Stanley J. Birge, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology, Washington University School of MedicineThis is an objective and informative treatise on a neglected area of great concern to many peri- and postmenopausal women: the influence of estrogen deprivation on brain function. Warga's insightful message brings these emotional and cognitive changes associated with estrogen loss out of the closet, empowering women to seek readily available strategies to modify these changes.

Wow! I'm 47 and was convinced I had early onset Alzheimer's because 3 or 4 times a day, I find myself using bizarrely wrong words ("wishbone" instead of "washcloth"; "plane" instead of "phone"). Dr. Warga's is the first book to point out how very, very common this is for women in perimenopause (pre-menopause) and that it doesn't get worse -- in fact, these symptoms usually stop when you've achieved actual menopause (because, as I understand it, it's not the estrogen loss that causes this syndrome, it's the wildly fluctuating estrogen levels of perimenopause that cause it). If you're a pre-menopausal woman who is experiencing mental fog, forgetfulness, word misusage, etc., you HAVE to read this book. It will allay your fears about Alzheimer's, etc. It has literally saved my life and my sanity! Thank you, thank you, Dr. Warga, for writing this groundbreaking book.

Lately I've been worried about misusing words. For instance, I described a painting as having an architectural theme rather than an agricultural one. I make this kind of mistake frequently and have been mortified. It never occurred to me that my estrogen levels could be the culprit in my memory loss. After reading Dr. Warga's book, I have had my levels checked and adjusted.
Menopause and the Mind is almost a blueprint for menopausal sanity. It's very easy to read, frank and informative, and lets women like me know that there is hope and that we are not alone. I have bought this book as a gift for a friend who turned 50 and she insists that it is one of the best gifts that she has ever received.

The absolute best book I have read about how estrogen affects the brain during menopause. I never realized how my brain fog and problems with spelling and memory were directly related to low estrogen levels.

In writing my own recent book, "The Care and Feeding of Your Brain" I searched the world's medical literature to produce a brief but well-documented "for women only" section. I can tell you that both the cyclical and the menopausal hormonal changes can wreak havoc on normal and even super normal brain function if not dealt with and managed properly. In "Menopause and the Mind",Dr. Warga documents this very clearly and offers many of the solutions I found in my own research and interviews. I enjoyed it immensely. It is well written. May I also suggest "The Care and Feeding of Your Brain" as a good companion guide to support this and to help you with optimizing your natural baseline of mental functioning...All the best to Dr. Claire Warga...Kenneth Giuffre MD
