Synopses & Reviews
Based on her extensive experience in treating hundreds of women who are coping with menopause, Dr. Angela Stengler, a naturopathic physician, discovered that women experience three types of symptoms -- what she describes as "menotypes." Drs. Angela and Mark Stengler detail the characteristics of each menotype and provide a quiz that will help readers discover their menotype profiles. Recognizing that menopause is not the same for all women, the authors emphasize a personal approach that gives each woman the opportunity to consider her own unique physical and emotional needs, and to decide on her own best route to treatment. The book also includes a full range of natural healing therapies for each menotype that carry none of the dangers of synthetic HRT, with specific recommendations to help prevent or alleviate many symptoms, from hot flashes and mood swings to osteoporosis and heart disease.
Combining a woman's perspective on lifestyle issues with a doctor's clinical experience in treating thousands of patients, Drs. Angela and Mark Stengler give all women the ability to take command of their lives during this time of transition.
For women seeking an alternative to HRT, this book offers individualized natural treatment options for the symptoms of menopause.
All too often, doctors who practice traditional medicine are quick to prescribe HRT as the only way to treat menopause, when, in fact, as recent studies have shown, it is often ineffective and unnecessary. Naturopathic doctors Angela and Mark Stengler show women how to determine their "menotype" based on their own unique combination of physical and emotional symptoms, heredity, diet, and lifestyle. This book grants women the critical information they need not only to safely and naturally treat their menopausal symptoms, but also to help them avoid other age-related disorders such as osteoporosis.
Offers alternative menopause treatments to hormone replacement therapy, profiling three different ways in which menopause transpires while explaining how women can naturally treat symptoms based on their emotional and physical experiences, heredity, diet, and lifestyles.
