Review

"Northrup writes from experience and, more important, from her professional expertise as a physician who has treated many women and researched menopause. The specific medical advice on sleep, diet, breast health and the empowerment motif will bring insight, comfort and confidence to women embarked on 'the change.'"—Publishers Weekly

Format: Paperback
This book has given so much insight & so much hope that you can't imagine. I was suffering from depression and treated for it without realizing it was only a symptom for my "ride" with Menopause. Christiane gives the bigger picture for a variety of individuals, just not herself. Her personal experience with menopause added to the book. She had to experience change with a divorce, I had to experience change with a change in work and lifestyle. Boy do I feel better about myself & how my body is changing.

The depression was my body telling me "change". Unfortunately, as humans, we are resistent to change, but it will make menopause a lot easier for those that do. Change is not the same for everyone.

She has been quick to update her book with newer treatments & research.

The tarot cards "issue" is just her experience. She does not promote it anywhere else in the book. I found that this experience shows that she is not the traditional doctor that has blindfolds on.

Menopause has become a dirty word to women in the 2nd part of their lives. It is hardly mentioned, just like menstruation was when we were younger. We need to get our heads out of the sand & realize that times are changing & so are we & change doesn't have to be bad.

I orginally borrowed this book from the library, and was so impressed that I ordered the most recent edition for myself. It is extremely well-documented and covers numerous topics of interest for any woman who is at the perimenopause stage or beyond. Although much of the information is included in both editions, I would recommend purchasing the most recent one as it addresses new research, particularly in the area of hormone therapy. Other topics covered include bone and heart health, healthy diet and lifestyle choices as well as mental health. I particularly appreciated the holistic approach of the book, and found the writing style to be clear and easy to read.

I have been educating myself about menopause since I hit 40. This book covers everything I discovered plus gives a spiritual side that medical literature never covers. It is full of excellent practical advice. Dr. Northrup combines traditional medicine with other "medicines" in a nice balance. "THE WISDOM OF MENOPAUSE" and Understanding: Train of Thought are life changing books. I can't recommend them too highly!

This book was recommended to me by a counsellor and it couldn't be a better guide for going through this natural transition in life. Dr. Northrup has presented well written, essential information and solutions for body, mind and spirit, much needed for women going through the change. It can be a powerful time, and we are not victims to our hormones. Reading this book, I find something useful on every page.
