Hormones or natural alternatives?
Few areas of women's health stir up as much confusion and debate as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which is normally started when the first symptoms of menopause appear. But HRT isn't the only solution. Many complementary therapies and lifestyle changes can prevent and relieve symptoms. Menopause: Natural Alternatives to HRT provides all the information you need to evaluate whether you opt for HRT or would benefit from natural solutions or a combination of the two. This very timely book gives women the details and the power to make informed decisions about their bodies and their health. Chapter one defines the "what, when and how" of menopause, while chapter two offers a questionnaire to assist the reader in determining which types of treatments might be best for her based upon her symptoms, lifestyle and emotions. The remaining chapters in the book offer a variety of treatment alternatives. Included are such treatments as acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, herbs, homeopathy, reflexology, as well as stress management techniques such as massage, yoga, pilates, and meditation. Two entire chapters are devoted to diet and exercise and the important roles these play in maintaining your health and relieving symptoms.
