The Menopause Made Simple Program: Maximise your lifestyle by minimising your symptoms

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 237 pages
Many women who are approaching, or are in the midst of, menopause are confused and frustrated with the information available to them on how best to manage this stage of their lives.

Research shows that making changes to your lifestyle can definitely have positive benefits on your menopausal symptoms. Dr Debra Anderson and Vicky Graham have developed a simple lifestyle plan that includes six steps women can take not only to minimise menopausal symptoms, but also to maximise the quality of their lives into the future.

Beginning with health and nutrition information and a clearly laid out exercise plan illustrated with black and white photographs, the authors also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and the use of complementary therapies. An easy-to-use action plan is included and the guide finishes with practical journal pages that 'walk' you through the sections.

Following The Menopause Made Simple Program can make a difference to your life. Read about your options and choose your own plan.
