The Healthy Woman: Menopause and Other Things We Don't Talk about
This book is packed with the kinds of information women need in order to take the right steps to maintain or improve their health. From hot flashes to osteoporosis, the material is up-to-date, accessible, frank, and objective.
At the center of discussion is menopause - one of the most profound, and least understood, phenomena of a woman's life. Manifested in various ways, and at various intensities for different women, menopause is rarely talked about in real terms - cause, content, connections, and consequences. Until now.
As an endocrinologist as well as a mother of four children, Dr. Davis blends the professional and the personal to provide a fundamental understanding of self-care for women. Whether talking about prevention or treatment, she encourages a sense of well-being through awareness and the active nurturing of one's own body, to be - at every age - The Healthy Woman.
