Summary
"The results of the recent study of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) by the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (part of the Women's Health Initiative or WHI) were so alarming, the study was halted before its completion date. It was found that the "standard issue" HRT formulation for post-menopausal women increased the risk of invasive breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, and pulmonary embolisms (blood clots). However, it also found that HRT reduced the incidence of colon cancer and the risk of bone fractures from osteoporosis. Women are more confused than ever about HRT and are looking for safe and healthy solutions to relieve short-term menopausal symptoms and to protect their health in the long term. The Natural Women's Guide to Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treasure trove of alternative solutions. Each chapter contains health-building ways -- through diet, herbs, supplements, movement, and hands-on healing systems -- to maximize health beyond menopause. Also, each chapter contains sections called "What to Eat" (food and supplements) and "How to Move" (exercises and body work), giving women a holistic and natural approach to health during perimenopause and beyond.
