Overcoming The Menopause Naturally
No woman looks forward to the menopause, but it is a natural process, not a disease, and as Overcoming the Menopause Naturally explains, there are natural ways of coping with any unpleasant symptoms. After explaining in simple terms the changes that take place, Dr Shreeve goes on to dispel as a myth the idea that the menopause means frustration, misery and loss of attractiveness. She describes it instead as an important milestone that marks a stage of physical and emotional maturity and the beginning of the prime of a woman's life. Her advice on the use of alternative therapies such as naturotherapy, herbal medicine and relaxation techniques will appeal to any woman who wants to avoid the side-effects of artificial hormones.

Cruising Through The Menopause
Published research now supports the fact that menopausal symptoms can be overcome without having to resort to HRT, and in a way which still offers protection from both heart disease and osteoporosis in the long term. Despite this, the alternative approach is not widely known and is certainly not widely practised. Over the last thirteen years, the WNAS has pioneered an exceedingly simple, workable and enjoyable programme to help alleviate symptoms of both the perimenopause and the menopause, no matter how severe. This includes making specific dietary changes including adding to the diet those foods that are rich in phytoestrogens; taking nutritional supplements; moderate weight-bearing exercise and a regular relaxation programme. Cruising Through the Menopause explains this programme clearly and also describes the pros and cons of taking HRT so that women everywhere can make informed choices about how they wish to tackle the menopause. It also includes numerous menu plans as well as over 80 delicious recipes.
