Front Cover

"There has never been a book like this one on the subject of menopause. While others focus on only a handful of the issues and while some writers discuss menopause from their own subjective experiences, The Complete Book of Menopause gives the reader comprehensive, reassuring, and upbeat information about every aspect of this perfectly normal stage of life." "Founders of Women's Health Associates, a group practice within Brown University School of Medicine's Division of General Internal Medicine at Rhode Island Hospital, the authors, a psychologist and two internists, are pioneers in the effort to see women not as the sum of their organs, but as full human beings. They have listened to their patients and learned from them. So their book not only provides the most up-to-date medical information, but also covers a multiplicity of the situations that challenge women as they reach their middle years." "The Complete Book of Menopause has the single most sensible chapter on hormone replacement; it explains hot flashes; it gives sound and reassuring advice about issues surrounding sexuality; it presents timely, important information about maintaining strong bones and a sound heart through the years; it deals with both the myth of depression and the reality of stress; it encourages the reader to adopt a healthy lifestyle, based on the fundamental principles of maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of humor; it provides a comprehensive list of resources; it answers the hundred most commonly asked questions from the authors' popular Town Meetings." "Thorough, accessible, nonthreatening, The Complete Book of Menopause will serve as the reader's guide to an exciting and full time of life. This is a book of the women, by the women, and for the women. It belongs on every shelf."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
