Description

Lonnie Barbach, Ph.D., bestselling author of For Yourself and For Each Other, has written an extraordinary life- and sanity-saving guide that turns the myth of menopause upside down and shows women the way to make the "third third" of life their most productive and fulfilling. Cutting-edge research and the most up-to-date information available distinguish The Pause. Here, for the first time, women have access to options and insights from the foremost authorities in the field of menopause. In addition, drawing on her extensive work on sexuality, Dr. Barbach discusses in detail the sensitive subjects of intimacy, desire, and sexual practices and provides truly helpful advice. You'll find out about early, often-overlooked symptoms of menopause - and what to do about them; managing moodiness, irritability, rage, and feelings of anxiety; herbal remedies and vitamin supplements that work for PMS and menopause-related difficulties; how to get dramatic relief with exercise and diet adjustment; the risks and benefits of hormone-replacement therapy and how to make sure it is tailored to your specific needs; ways to benefit from hormones while you're still menstruating; dozens of remedies for hot flashes and headaches; explicit suggestions to ease sexual difficulties - and even make sex better than ever; Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and homeopathic treatments; and how to handle physicians who may not offer the information or help you need. Plus, there's a chapter for men to help them cope - and truly understand.In The Pause, Lonnie Barbach revolutionizes menopause - just as she revolutionized female sexuality with her groundbreaking work on sex and intimacy. Drawing on firsthand testimony from hundreds of women and the most up-to-the-minute medical research available, Lonnie Barbach provides invaluable guidance to help us feel in control, to empower us to make informed choices about the options facing us, and to let us fully understand and experience this major turning point, not with fear and discomfort but with strength, confidence, and glowing good health.show more
