This quote applies to many things in our lives. The fear and anxiety we suffer over something is often worse than the thing itself. Our misconceptions, myths and fallacies tied to an event can be far more harmful than the event itself. This is particularly true with menopause.

Sadja Greenwood, M.D. opens the revised edition of Menopause, Naturally with the above quote. Menopause and its "treatments" have been popular topics in recent years. It seems that every report offers new insights, new treatments and new ideas. Dr. Greenwood examines many of these ideas and offers natural alternatives for dealing with menopause -- when it is necessary to deal with it at all. Menopause is a natural process and many women have little difficulty. Hot flashes, experienced by approximately 80% of menopausal women, need to be "demystified", according to Dr. Greenwood. She devotes an entire chapter to living with or without them.

One of the main focuses throughout the book is the "demystification" of menopause. "The popular image of the middle-aged woman as an emotional wreck, drenched in sweat and unable to cope, is part of the negative mythology of menopause," writes Dr. Greenwood.

In addition to the valuable information for the "middle-aged" woman such as extensive discussions of Hormone Replacement Therapies, women of all ages will gain valuable health information regarding osteoporosis, nutrition, relaxation and much more. Of course, it is never too late or too early to prepare your body for long-term health. Menopause Naturally, is a step in the right direction.
