HASH(0xa0ca3e6c) out of 5 stars Surprising! And excellent! Nov. 20 2005
By faience - Published on
Format: Paperback
I sympathize with another reviewer who was not expecting a Christian book when she bought this. I was unsure about it myself. But it turned out to be so medically excellent that I'd hate for readers to reject it on that account alone.

The amount of space devoted to spiritual advice is very small. Most chapters deal with their subject alone ("Phytoestrogens," "Soothing the angry gut," "Skin Hair and Bones," "Menstrual Migraines" etc.). Even the chapter on Stress mentions God only briefly at the end, and its info on the relationship between stress hormones and female hormones was enlightening. Part 5, "The Power for Change," talks a bit more about God, but even there, the emotional emphasis is on embracing change and connecting with others. Christianity is only part of a chapter that, in turn, is only 9 pages anyway. References to the helpfulness of prayer are sprinkled throughout the book, but sparsely, and many of those reference the Hebrew Bible.

I completely support any readers who want no Christian slant in such a book. This one just isn't for you. But many non-Christian readers might not mind Smith's light touch. She believes that a spiritual center can be immensely beneficial during stress and change, and there's a lot to be said in favor of that. Though Smith might be horrified by my saying this, a reader can easily substitute her personal spirituality, Buddhism, the Tao, anything, for Smith's.

Smith is NO lightweight when it comes to medicine and nutrition. She never talks down to the reader or oversimplifies. I thought I was already pretty knowledgeable, but was surprised by how much biology and physiology I learned. It's very up-to-date as of my writing this review, and covers HRT studies that have recently made the news. Boxes in the margins organize and emphasize important points and information.

Coverage of nutrition is thorough and intelligent, not only about what to eat, but also the importance of timing. There's a nice recipe section for those who like to cook, and terrific general food advice that lets those of us with a cooking-aversion put together a good simple eating plan for balancing blood sugar, energy, mood, and weight.

The only weak point, to me, was the insomnia chapter. It was the standard advice about making the bedroom dark and cool enough, not using it for work or other stress activities, winding down, avoiding spicy foods, etc. etc. Heard it all before! Then again, I'm not finding any better advice anywhere else, and these are sound principles, just a bit wimpy in coping with a perimenopause insomnia. Smith's blood-sugar balancing diet can help these nighttime problems.

Great book for Christian women, still great for non-Christians who buy it knowingly, and can take the many benefits it offers, cafeteria-style!

HASH(0xa0ca3ec0) out of 5 stars Great book with great information Sept. 13 2008

This book has great information for understanding changes during perimenopause. It covers the wide range of symptoms women go through very well, and the information is scientifically based. It is a great balance of sound nutritional information, not too far on the holistic side, but full of natural solutions to various symptoms--great nutritional information! It is the best perimenopause book I have read. I definitely recommend it, and I have heard Pam Smith speak in person, and I agree with her advice.

HASH(0xa068d0c0) out of 5 stars Finally! Answers to my ???'s ! Oct. 10 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So thankful a friend recommended this book to me! For a few years I felt I was alone; no body could answer my questions about my moods, body, etc. Pamela helped me make sense of it all (I am not through the book yet). I look forward to finishing it and applying her 'plan'. I especially love that she is a Christian, I feel I can trust her. She gives me reliable information that she has studied and seen the results I am looking for. This is a breath of fresh air and a life preserver for someone that felt as if she were drowning in a sea of peri-menopause! Now I can be more patient with myself and don't feel so out of control, I am filled with HOPE!
