RADIANT, ABUNDANT HEALTH IN MIDLIFE AND BEYOND

The author of The Midlife Bible—A Woman’s Survival Guide, Michael P. Goodman, M.D., is a medical communicator who practices patient-oriented health care. Most importantly, Dr. Goodman specializes in listening to women. The Midlife Bible is the culmination of his 33 years of experience in the practice of obstetrics, gynecology, and peri-menopausal medicine. It is filled with insight, wisdom, and practical advice. This survival guide incorporates the author’s knowledge of both "Western Medicine" and alternative approaches and reflects his deep respect for the individual’s intelligence, autonomy, and right to design her own therapy, empowered by the knowledge of all available options.

The Midlife Bible is a complete guide to the conditions common to women in midlife—both peri-menopausal and menopausal—including: PMS, bleeding problems, bone density, pelvic support issues, fatigue syndromes, irritable bowel, insomnia, psychological "blahs," and the dilemma of childlessness at midlife. It includes honest information about breast cancer and an open discussion about sexuality. The Midlife Bible acknowledges the many different situations of midlife and acts as a guide for individualized decision- making. Dr. Goodman explains and offers relief from the "peri-menopausal crazies" and, most importantly, simplifies the hormone replacement therapy decision with a full discussion of prescription hormones, bioidenticals and compounded preparations, and non-hormonal alternatives.

Women facing the challenges of midlife, or husbands and family members wishing to be supportive, will find The Midlife Bible an invaluable, accessible little gem—truly a complete "survival guide."
