The biggest dilemma menopausal women face today is whether to begin hormone replacement therapy.

A straightforward, easy-to-read overview of what women need to make a decision about hormone replacement therapy.

Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

Practically every question a woman ever wanted to ask about estrogen is answered in this book: "Do I really need to replace the estrogen that I lose after menopause?" "Does estrogen cause cancer?" "Will estrogen reverse my flagging libido?"

The Estrogen Answer Book grew out of author Ruth Jacobowitz's own experience with taking the hormone to tackle hot flashes, as well as out of the question she heard most from women as she lectured around the country: "Should I take estrogen?"

The book describes the potential benefits as well as risks of hormone replacement therapy. And it gives the nitty-gritty of the different formulations of estrogen out there, from pills to patches, vaginal creams to estrogen rings.

Jacobowitz, a former hospital administrator and author of several women's health books, including 150 Most-Asked Questions About Midlife Sex, Love, and Intimacy, includes useful chapters on food sources for plant estrogens and lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and other health problems that can come with menopause. For women interested in using diet to fight bone-thinning osteoporosis, Jacobowitz also has an appendix detailing the amount of calcium in common foods.

"The decision to begin hormone replacement therapy may well be the most challenging, complex and confusing decision that a healthy menopausal woman may have to make," she writes. "This book was written to help women sort through all the available information about estrogen. When armed with good information, a woman can decide what she wants to do when it is time to make her own estrogen decision."

The Estrogen Answer Book can be a valuable resource for some of the estimated 50 million women of the baby-boom generation who are at or nearing menopause. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every women needs to read this book! Dec 5 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am the author of The Estrogen Answer Book which was expressly written because women all over the world are seeking answers to their most-pressing midlife health question, which is "Should I take estrogen?"
In searching for clear answers I reviewed every kind of estrogen on the market today, both pharmaceutical and phyto (or plant.) I talked to hundreds of experts and, more importantly to thousands of women, to learn about the benefits, risks, fears, and concerns, and to try to cast a clear beam of light through a chaotic and confusing subject.
I believe The EStrogen Answer Book meets that goal. As quoted on the jacket,
"With her signature clarity, compassionate voice, and authoritative style, Ruth Jacobowitz has written a long-overdue goldmine of information. For the the millions of women in hormonal confusion, The Estrogen Asnwer Book is the definitive resource. I can't wait to recommend it to every woman I know?" Debra Waterhouse, MPH. RD author of Outsmarting the Midlife Fat Cell.
"The Estrogen Answer Book guides women through the maze of issues and questions regarding hormone replacement therapy and menopause. This is an extremely well-written reference for women who are about to enter menopause, as well as for those who are who are frustrated and confused by the myriad of treatment options. Ruth Jacobowitz has provided a valuable resource for the growing number of women experiencing menopause."

These are just a couple of comments that represent advance praise for this book that have come in from professionsals everywhere. The Estrogen Answer Book may help you answer the question for you, "Should I take estrogen?"

Format:Paperback
Ruth Jacobowitz's book 150 Most Asked Questions About hormone replacement therapy answer all the questions you'll ever have about estrogen and hormone replacement therapy. As the founder and creator of HotFlash! the online perimenopasue/menopause support group and website, I'm constantly doing research about about the latest in hormone replacement therapy. During my interview with Ruth it was clear that she really has done her homework about this very important topic. She addresses all women's concerns- will HRT cause breast cancer? should I take it and for how long? The book is like a good friend seemingly to know the most pressing questions and more precisely the answers. I strongly recommend this book for any woman considering any type of estrogen therapy and more importantly for any woman who has yet to consider this therapy.
