Sudden Menopause: Restoring Health and Emotional Well-Being
What do you do when “the change” happens before you’re ready for it?
Menopause is a natural part of aging, but sometimes it comes too soon, precipitated by hysterectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, anorexia, premature ovarian failure and other conditions. In Sudden Menopause, young women facing the trauma of unanticipated menopause are given the information and support they need to adjust to the impact it has on their lives. This book tackles topics of immediate concern, such as hot flashes and emotional and cognitive changes as well as long-term health issues, including osteoporosis and heart disease. Other topics include:
- how to talk to your doctor
- vitamins, herbs and supplements
- keeping your heart healthy
- memory disturbances and sleep
- nutrition and weight management
- hormone replacement therapy
The author’s personal experience of sudden menopause and her expertise as a women’s health practitioner allow her to thoroughly explore the options available to women experiencing menopause. She has worked with and talked to dozens of women, and their case studies, interviews and comments help to reassure the reader that she can confidently navigate her way through sudden menopause.
