Dear Menopause, I Do Not Fear You! by Dr. Soma Mandal

I have included everything that women want to know about menopause, but were too shy to ask, including what types of food to eat (and avoid) to take care of themselves at this stage of life. Diet is a very important factor and when a woman eats an unhealthy diet, this can often make her menopausal symptoms worse. I take an east-to-ready, light-hearted approach to discussing these issues as well a simple approach on the science and treatment.

Walk Your Way to Better By Joyce Shulman

This product was recommended by Christina Towle from 99 Walks

This is a book about walking your way to better. Everywhere you turn, people, podcasts and gurus promise a simple path to the life you want. But few of them work. Why? Because simply reading the words is rarely enough to call your heart and mind to action. This book is different. Each section provides a thought-starter, insight or story. But I don’t want you to just read it. I want you to read a section and then lace up your sneakers and head out the door. Because while walking, your brain processes in a unique way, enabling you to recognize the things that are truly holding your back and the changes you actually need to make. You will literally Walk Your Way to Better. Along the way, you will forge a powerful connection between your mind and your body. And bonus — you’ll feel better and become fitter.

The Menopause Diet By Larrian Gillespie

This product was recommended by Joseph Garcia from The Hempire

I learned a lot about what’s going on in my body as it ages. It isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a new thing. And now I understand it a lot more. I have put to practice the recommendations that she suggests and I’m finding that I am much more satisfied and I’m losing weight. I am even sleeping better. The negative side is that she doesn’t tell you how much protein a woman should have in her daily diet, she uses percentages. And a layman could get lost in the medical jargon. But with the effort, it really isn’t that hard to understand. It makes sense now! And I am able to put to practice the principles that she is suggesting. It is do-able. It is a good book, and very informative. I would recommend it to any woman who is approaching and or going through menopause.

The Wisdom of Menopause By Christiane Northrup

This product was recommended by Joseph Garcia from The Hempire

Oh my goodness, this book saved my sanity! My OBGYN prescribed Premarin for my vaginal dryness, rawness, discharge, and painful Intercourse. It did not help at all… I kept calling back to the office, they kept upping my dosage of Premarin. I was miserable! Finally, after 4 months of misery, I remembered reading this book years ago. I lost the book after several moves, so I purchased the revised edition! I read it like a bible and picked the natural products that spoke to me. In ‘1’ days time, I started to get relief! I am just in my 3rd week. My body is almost back to my pre peri menopausal self. I am so very thankful to have found this book. When I go back to my OBGYN in 2 weeks, I am taking this book and the products I am using, to educate her. Not all women can use the one size fits all Premarin..

Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food by Arlene B. Englander

This product was recommended by Arlene B. Englander from ArleneEnglander

“Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food: A Five Point Plan for Success” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018) is for anyone who wishes they could eat what they like (within the 80-90% healthy foods/10-20% fun foods ratio advised by most evolved nutritionists today), savor it, and stop just at the point of satisfaction without overeating. Readers learn how to become aware of the difference between eating in a healthy way and eating emotionally – neither to satisfy hunger, nor for enjoyment, but in a desperate attempt to distract oneself from painful thoughts and feelings. When we handle stress well away from the table, we’re free to relax and really savor our food when we choose to eat. Proven techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindful Eating are presented in an innovative, easy to remember way.
