Speaking for her generation of women, Dr. Susan Love says, "Now we're approaching menopause and we want to decide for ourselves how we'll experience this process. . . . We're faced with all kinds of options, and with them all kinds of questions."
In Dr. Susan Love's Menopause Book, Dr. Love helps readers sort through their choices and tells them how to cope with symptoms, addressing concerns such as osteoporosis, heart disease, and breast cancer. She discusses options for the short and long term: diet, alternative treatments, and all the pros and cons of hormonal therapy. She also provides an in-depth questionnaire on personal health risks and lifestyle preferences to help women choose the options that fit their unique needs. Guidelines for finding the right health care professional and a resource guide for books, newsletters, and organizations help to make this an indispensable resource for every woman.
