This text offers women a direct approach to their questions about the menopause whilst recognizing the individuality of women in addressing their concerns. Dr Moore encourages the reader to assess her individual situation by looking at her own medical history and talking with a health adviser. She helps the reader make informed choices about her treatment, should treatment be chosen as the way forward, and offers a balanced account of options which range from traditional medical practice to holistic and alternative approaches. Above all, she encourages the reader to accept responsibility for her choices and to deal with the consequences of those choices while remaining involved throughout the process. She also emphasizes the need for each woman to monitor her health condition closely and to reassess her situation as her health needs change through the years.
