You have seen the books. The hint of triumphalism is hardly ever subtle and the theme is always familiar: I defied "them' and I won. It is typically a description of a personal journey through menopause that may have been against medical advice. It is meant to inspire and maybe it does, but is that an ideal template on which one should base their decision on health matters? Logic says no.
Every woman is unique. The only way you retain full control of your body and health is to have command of the full facts. Choosing a book on the subject of "Menopause' can be an exhausting exercise. There are just so many out there. This book has been written in full awareness of that fact but the author was also aware that many of those books have a fatal weakness of expressing the authors' opinions (rather than proven evidence-based facts), are too narrow in focus or are hopelessly out of date.
Menopause is a vast, rather complex subject with many distinct facets to it. It is also the case that unlike those who read a book as a purely academic endeavour, many readers may have particular interest in a specific area of the subject of menopause. This is why this book is as comprehensive as it is , covering in exhaustive detail, the various aspects of the menopause. The author of this book is a practising specialist and as such has gone about the exercise of writing this book to ensure it is fully accessible by the non-medical reader without sacrificing on quality or detail. In other words; in plain English. The result is a book full of up to date facts covering the full spectrum of this important and interesting area. Some of the areas covered include:
•The physiological basis
•Alternative and Complementary Therapies
•HRT for breast cancer (and other cancers) survivors
•Sexual Health after the menopause
•Fertility after the menopause
There is currently no book on the market that is as comprehensive in span, detailed in facts and up to date as this book, while remaining fully accessible to any reader. Being informed is being empowered and, on the subject of Menopause, you won't find anything better.
