Book Description

3 Jan 2012
Dr. Christiane Northrup’s #1 New York Times bestseller The Wisdom of Menopause has inspired more than a million women with a dramatically new vision of midlife—and will continue to do so for generations to come. As Dr. Northrup has championed, the “change” is not simply a collection of physical symptoms to be “fixed,” but a mind-body revolution that brings the greatest opportunity for growth since adolescence. The choices a woman makes now—from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet—have the power to secure vibrant health and well-being for the rest of her life.

Now completely revised, this groundbreaking classic draws on the current research and medical advances in women’s health, and includes
 
• a new section on sex after 50—and how, if need be, you can rejuvenate your sex life
• updated mammogram guidelines—and how thermography improves breast health
• the latest on the glycemic index, optimal blood sugar levels, and ways to prevent diabetes
• dietary guidelines revealing that hidden sugar—not dietary fat—is the main culprit in heart disease, cancer, and obesity
• all you need to know about perimenopause and why it’s critical to your well-being
• a vital program for ensuring pelvic health during and after menopause
• strategies to combat osteoporosis and strengthen bones for life
 
With this trusted resource, Dr. Christiane Northrup shows that women can make menopause a time of personal empowerment—emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger in both mind and body than ever before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too heavy, too medically-biased 19 Oct 2013
By minty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book too heavy and cumbersome at around 800 pages plus. I actually found it difficult to hold whilst reading it. The bibliography/
reference pages alone were nearly 100 pages.

It is an intelligent book, but its also rather medical, irrelevant to me as most of I understood much of this already. Though there was not that much on actual menopause symptoms strangely enough. I looked everywhere for something detailed on "headaches" and nothing!

It is written by a doctor, so perhaps no surprise on the medical emphasis but a lot of this e.g. hormone therapy and supplements, seemed more directed to the American market.

The problem for me was that though there were some interesting parts on the life change elements of menopause, this made up a smaller part of the book than the book's title "Wisdom of Menopause" would suggest. For a broader outlook, I would recommend Germaine Greer's "The Change".

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative... 29 Jun 2013
By Autumn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Christiane Northrup writes so well and covers so many issues for women at the time of menopause - physically, mentally and emotionally. All women should read this book by the age of 40, so they can start taking the supplements they need to support their body as the changes start but also to help them think about what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Positive book with so much useful information. A must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 6 Jun 2013
By apple
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Every woman should have this on their shelf. I keep in by my bed and dip in and out regularly, even though medically qualified myself, her common sense approach as well as spirituality is very appealing to me. Bursting with information on all things menopause. Love it.

This book is very informative, but not laid out in as easy a format as The Menopause Book. I bought both, and would refer to both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than I expected 15 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was a bit worried that this would be too 'new-age' for someone with very real menopausal prolems, but Dr Northrup is a great mix of doctor, mystic and writer. I have found it surprisingly helpful, and often return to bits that I need to think through again.
