Library Journal Review

Lieberman, a clinical nutritionist with a great deal of interest in natural therapies, has written a clear, concise guide to treating the symptoms of menopause. Her focus is holistic, with good advice on eating right, exercising, and taking herbal supplements to counteract menopause-related hot flashes, menstrual changes, and sexual symptoms. Though following her advice is not as convenient as taking hormone replacement pills, Lieberman argues persuasively that her plan is a healthy way to approach menopausal changes. She does discuss the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy, but she challenges readers not to use it as a substitute for healthy living. Very well written and engaging, this work complements Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book (LJ 3/1/97) and Miriam Stoppard's Natural Menopause (DK, 1998) while offering a nice counterpoint to Adam Romoff's excellent Estrogen : How and Why It Can Save Your Life (LJ 2/1/99).
