Banyen's Description: 

Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, is back—in a fully revised 4th edition of The Wisdom of Menopause. She shows how menopause is more than a collection of physical problems: it is a “mind-body revolution” that offers women the greatest opportunity for growth since adolescence. The choices a woman makes now—from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet—have the power to secure vibrant health and well-being for the rest of her life.

This “bible” is packed with fascinating information—from why dietary fat is not really the enemy to a chapter on sex after fifty and an innovative program for ensuring pelvic health and well-being during and after menopause.

After working with thousands of women who have gone through this process, as well as experiencing it myself, I can say with great assurance that menopause is an exciting developmental stage—one that, when participated in consciously, holds enormous promise for transforming and healing our bodies, minds, and spirits on the deepest levels.

Dr. Northrup threads her personal story, illuminating anecdotes, and case histories throughout this handbook. Among many other themes, chapters include:

  • How menopause literally rewires the brain, triggering a change in priorities
  • How to listen for the wake-up calls inherent in women’s cyclic nature, from PMS to SAD to menopausal symptoms
  • Up-to-date information on hormone testing and hormone therapy, with new options and new research
  • Prescriptive advice on how to deal with the myths and realities of sexual changes and appearance issues.

She also offers comprehensive research-based treatment guides for everything from fibroids to depression and a unique plan for insuring long-term health of breasts, bones, and heart.

With this trusted resource, Dr. Northrup shows how women can make menopause a time of personal empowerment—emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger in both mind and body.
