The Menopausal Years
Alternative Approaches for Women 30-90
by Susan Weed
Recommended by Tamarack Song

      Your body knows more about menopause than your doctor does! Susun Weed (author of best-seller Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year) spent three years talking with more than 10,000 women about their menopause. She discovered that their experiences differ hugely from most published accounts:

      -More than half reported stronger orgasms after menopause - Most post-menopausal women easily increase bone mass through diet and exercise.

      -A substantial number of menopausal women feel a stong need for time alond and for marking their Change with ritual.One of the world's best selling books on menopause still comes on strong. Called "indispensable," "incredible," and a "treasure trove of information," Menopausal Years is the "bible" for the 87% of American women over the age of fifty who want nothing to do with hormones.

      Includes information and remedies for problems with premenopause -- flooding, erratic periods, fibroids, spotting, water retention, muscle soreness -- as well as menopause -- hot flashes, sleeplessness, mood swings, headaches, palpitations, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and much more. Final chapters speak to post-menopausal women's concerns: including ways to maintain heart health, prevent and reverse osteoporosis, deal with dry vaginal tissues and incontinence, ease aching joints, and maintain healthy libido. The soothing, wise voice of Grandmother Growth guides each woman through the book and through her own menopause metamorphosis. Ritual interludes interweaves a spiritual dimension often lacking in other works.Includes superb resource lists for menopause information, index, glossary, directions for using (and preparing) herbal medicines, complete descriptions of the most-used menopausal herbs (including nettles, ginseng, dong quai, red clover, oatstraw, and motherwort), recipes for heart- and bone-healthy dishes, and lots of illustrations. Paperback, 204 pages.

      Menopausal Years: The Wise Woman Way brings together all dimensions of the Change - from meditations and quick fixes for hot flashes to safe, natural ways to keep your mood cool, your heart healthy and your bones strong.

      "This book should be in the hands of every woman, world-wide, no matter what age." - Juliette de Bairacli Levy, author, Common Herbs for Natural Health

      "What a joy! What delight! User-friendly, poetic, and still gives the facts." - Rosetta Reitz, author, Menopause: A Positive Approach

      "An enormously rich and superior brew, it brings with a tremendous variety of useful information." - Mara Taub, author Menopause: A Self Care Manual
