The Heat is on: Health, Humor & Hope for Women Facing Menopause

Front Cover
Revell, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 283 pages
In a culture that glorifies youth and perfect bodies, women typically don't celebrate menopause. But Danna Demetre's latest book reveals that this season of life can actually be the most rewarding. Entwining nuggets of humor with spiritual insight, The Heat Is On tells how women can effectively deal with common problems including hot flashes, weight gain, and forgetfulness. It addresses important issues such as hormone replacement therapy, proper lifestyle nutrition, health and beauty, and depression. Demetre also provides scriptural principles and encouragement, as well as evaluations and questions for personal application. Whether readers are married or single, approaching mid-life or in the midst of it, The Heat Is On proves that women can embrace "The Change" rather than dread it.
