To enable her to cope with difficult symptons of the menopause which were not entirely alleviated by HRT, Linda Kearns decided to investigate treatment through nutrition. This led her to develop a new recipe for a flapjack containing natural chemicals called phytooestrogens, which are produced by plants which mimic female hormones. When the Daily Mail publicized Linda's discoveries, the paper was inundated with thousands of enquiries, and her unique flapjack recipe has now been marketed by a food company. In this text, Linda has continued to develop a wide range of recipes using phytooestrogen-rich food, such as soya beans and milk, tofu, chickpeas, linseed oil, sesame seeds, oatbran and oatmeal, alfalfa, broccoli, red wine and many more. The guide illustrates natural ways of coping with the menopause through the use of phytooestrogenic foods.
