No More Hot Flashes... And Even More Good News
Penny Budoff became recognized as a pioneer in women's medical care when she wrote her now classic book No More Hot Flashes and Other Good News. Twenty years later, she has become even more convinced that women need medical care and health information that is right for them, not watered down versions of what is right for men. Today we see daily headlines trumpeting the results of the efforts begun by her and the other physicians concerned specifically about women: headlines about heart disease in women, breast cancer, Alzheimer's, hormone replacement therapy, osteoporosis, sexuality -- and, yes, menopause, the once unspoken word. These are the issues of her newest book, incorporating Dr. Budoff's own vast experience and the expertise of additional physicians specializing in each area of womens health. In this one volume, the reader can learn the most up-to-date knowledge about what to expect in one's middle years: why hormone replacement therapy can solve the side effects of menopause and givea woman freedom from osteoporosis, heart disease and even Alzheimer's disease; why natural estrogens and vitamins are essential; why the brain is our most important organ -- and can be kept healthy for decades; why cervical cancer is a sexually transmitted disease. All this information is accessible in this one valuable book.
