Although every woman experiences the changes of menopause, advice on the subject is scant in most women’s health guides, and what advice there is often relies on a traditional, pharmaceutical-based approach to symptoms. In Leslie Beck’s Nutrition Guide to Menopause, Canada’s most trusted health and nutrition expert provides proven diet, vitamin and herbal remedies that address the major symptoms and health concerns associated with menopause.
Because women experience menopause in very different ways, Leslie Beck suggests they tailor their response to menopause to fit their own needs. Rather than promoting a catch-all approach to the symptoms of menopause, she advises women to carefully assess their particular symptoms, then address those symptoms systematically, using a variety of dietary approaches, herbal remedies and vitamin and mineral supplements for the greatest possible relief.
This edition, which is a revised and updated version of Managing Menopause with Diet, Vitamins and Herbs, includes a substantial new section on hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Recent controversies regarding HRT have made it a source of great anxiety for many women, and Leslie Beck addresses those concerns methodically. Other helpful additions to this edition include a menopause symptom questionnaire, a completely revised appendix on vitamins and minerals with updated recommended dietary allowances, and a section on the benefits of phytoestrogens, which are found in foods rich in soy and flaxseed.
