Based on her extensive experience in treating hundreds of women who are coping with menopause, Dr. Angela Stengler, a naturopathic physician, discovered that women experience three types of symptoms -- what she describes as "menotypes." Drs. Angela and Mark Stengler detail the characteristics of each menotype and provide a quiz that will help readers discover their menotype profiles. Recognizing that menopause is not the same for all women, the authors emphasize a personal approach that gives each woman the opportunity to consider her own unique physical and emotional needs, and to decide on her own best route to treatment. The book also includes a full range of natural healing therapies for each menotype that carry none of the dangers of synthetic HRT, with specific recommendations to help prevent or alleviate many symptoms, from hot flashes and mood swings to osteoporosis and heart disease.Combining a woman's perspective on lifestyle issues with a doctor's clinical experience in treating thousands of patients, Drs. Angela and Mark Stengler give all women the ability to take command of their lives during this time of transition.
