"More than 20 million baby boomers will enter menopause during the next ten years. As modern women, we take control of our lives in a myriad of ways that our mothers never contemplated. Ap-proaching menopause, the one journey in life we all share, should be no different. Our mothers were largely silent about what happened to them as they passed through this midlife change. But a new generation of women has already started to break the wall of silence."         --from the Preface

A few years ago, at forty-six, Trisha Posner left her annual physical feeling wonderful--until her doctor called to report surprising news: Although Posner had not recognized her own symptoms, her blood tests indicated she was in full-blown menopause. When her gynecologist urged hormone replacement therapy, Posner balked, fearing it might increase her risk of developing  breast cancer, which had already struck her mother and two aunts.
This Is Not Your Mother's Menopause traces Posner's quest for an alternative to a woman's usual choices: take hormones (as most doctor advise), or do  nothing and risk the deterioration of her heart, bones, and mind. In frank and engaging prose, Posner reveals how she developed a personal program to counter naturally the annoying symptoms of menopause, like hot flashes and headaches, as well as the more serious problems, like depression and loss of sexual desire. Ultimately, her unique regimen--built around exercise, diet, and nutritional and herbal supplements--not only eliminated her symptoms but significantly improved her health and quality of life.

Trisha Posner's journey is a powerful reminder that women must be informed consumers about menopause, and proves that this passage affords a gateway to physical, spiritual, and emotional growth. Candid, at times irreverent and humorous, but ultimately empowering, This Is Not Your Mother's Menopause reveals how one modern woman took control of her health and her life with inspiring results.
