There are 40 million menopausal women in the United States and 75 percent suffer signs of menopause including hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, lack of energy, weight gain, sleeplessness and other symptoms as they approach and reach menopause. Recent studies suggest that the risks of taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) are greater than previously thought. Women in menopause are actively seeking an alternative to estrogen and HRT.

The 4,000 American women who reach menopause each day face higher risks for osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes. Many doctors suggest HRT, yet why do only nine to 15 percent of menopausal women chose HRT? Because they are concerned about the risks and side effects, HRT is associated with an increased rise of breast cancer, uterine cancer and blood clots. There is, however, an excellent alternative to HRT, one that carries no risk, one that a woman doesn't need a doctor to prescribe or administer. All a woman needs to do is to add soy products to her diet or take soy supplements.

In his book, The Soy Solution for Menopause: The Estrogen Alternative, award-winning endocrinologist Dr. Machelle Seibel shares his fascinating discoveries about the healing possibilities of soy and introduces scientific proof for its use as a comprehensive alternative to hormone replacement therapy.
