Product Description


Kirkus Reviews (starred review) A significant heads-up for women over 30, along with reassurance and a detailed action plan....This book offers validation and hope.

Stanley J. Birge, M.D. Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology, Washington University School of Medicine Insightful....Brings [the] emotional and cognitive changes associated with estrogen loss out of the closet, empowering women to seek readily available strategies to modify these changes.

From the Back Cover

Are you between the ages of 35 and 60 and having trouble remembering your best friend's phone number? If this sounds familiar to you, take heart: Claire Warga's help and advice are on the way.

IN this groundbreaking book, Dr. Warga, a neuropsychologist, identifies the "mind misconnect" syndrome that causes unsettling events during perimenopause and menopause, noting that they are not signs of imminent madness but a natural part of aging.

Drawing upon cutting-edge brain research and many never-before-described cases, Warga provides the first scientific explanation for why the symptoms occur and reveals how they can be reversed or alleviated. She provides a self-assessment test to help readers determine whether they are experiencing "mind misconnect" syndrome and offers important information and advice on estrogen replacement therapy as well as non-hormonal treatments that mimic estrogen's mind-boosting effects. Her self-screening test, symptom chart, and treatment measurement technique are important tools every woman can use to assess her condition and progress over time, with or without her ob/gyn.

By A Customer on Sept. 26 2000
Format: Paperback
Dr. Warga's book, Menopause and the Mind, does women an enormous favor in presenting frontline research on estrogen and the brain as those familiar with this research area know. Every year, the scientific literature on estrogen's known effects on the brain (and the effects on the brain of estrogen loss), has grown more massive but women have mainly been left out of the loop on it over the last ten years.
Anyone with internet access can judge its size for themselves by logging onto the excellent PUBMED site on any search engine - it accesses the full scientific and medical literature in the National Library of Medicine. Anyone can punch in "estrogen AND the brain" on this site and read actual abstracts (or just titles) of the thousands of articles that now document the effects of estrogen on the brain - predominantly beneficial effects - in humans and in animals. In the year 2000 alone, hundreds of new studies documenting this association have been reported.
As a baby boomer, I am aging today and need to know what options I have to weigh until the ideal studies come out over the decades to come.
I found Dr. Warga's synthesis of this material a wonderful, clear and easy read and more than fair-minded. I feel she bent over backwards in the book to warn off women, who for personal reasons, shouldn't take estrogen. In the book, she's far from dogmatic in pushing estrogen on everyone for the mind changes she describes. I thought I was going crazy or had early, early Alzheimer's disease before I read about the symptoms of the WHM Syndrome and read what could reverse it.

to "Estrogen and the Mind". Claire Warga does an excellent job of compiling the data and cases describing the very real symptoms experienced at this time of life for many women (not all women). Unfortunately, she immediately defaulted to estrogen as the SOLE cure - natural or synthetic. What about the other hormones that decline at this time of life? Why has there not been research on the effects of progesterone and the mind? Research is primarily funded by pharmecutical companies and they hold no patents on progesterone - surprise. We get only half the story with this book. Now most current research has debunked that estrogen is the cure for Alzheimers.

By A Customer on March 20 2001
Format: Paperback
This wonderful, sanity-saving book DOES offer a lot of non-hormonal alternatives for dealing with perimenopausal mental fogginess. The fogginess can be very frightening, and because I had breast cancer I'm not a candidate for HRT - I can't even use soy products. I thought I was doomed to several years of confusion, memory & vocabulary loss. Dr. Warga's book not only explains the medical reasons behind all of the symptoms, but also shares coping strategies other women have developed to deal with these symptoms. The fact that the symptoms go away was the best news of all. GET THIS BOOK! It's reassuring and informative.

This body of helpful information would be much better known, and more widely available if the author had chosen to simply present the information rather than trying to make her name synonymous with a cluster of symptoms many millions of women share. Let's face it, "Warga's Hormonal Misconnection Syndrome" is just long form for meno-mind.
I think the author damages her credibility by giving her credit for 'discovering' menopause. That said - there is so much in this book that will make sense to many, and I am grateful to know that I'm not the only one who gets nervous trying to navigate traffic in the big city.
