If you are a woman over say... 35 I want to highly recommend this book to you.
Both my 40-something wife and I started to notice changes in all sorts of physical and emotional ways even as early as our late thirties. Now that we are slipping into the peri-menopausal years things are changing rapidly. This book is not only a wealth of information on those physiological changes but includes natural, holistic, and dietary suggestions to ease many of these symptoms - without the addition of hormones.
Menopause has historically carried such a stigma, shrouded in hushed conversations and harsh treatments. It's was wonderful for me to learn that the things I was experiencing were happening to most women - and even better - that there are simple changes and modifications that can make this phase of our lives filled with peace and joy.
We have already put into practice many of the dietary changes Dr. Northrup suggests with fantastic results.
And guys... if you have gotten this far through the post:
This book can help you too - buy it for your favorite gal.
If you don't have a favorite gal, might I suggest keeping it on your coffee table.
What a great conversation starter.
