Dr. Christiane Northrup's #1 New York Times bestseller The Wisdom of Menopause has inspired more than a million women with a dramatically new vision of midlife-and will continue to do so for generations to come.

The choices a woman makes now-from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet-have the power to secure vibrant health and well-being for the rest of her life.
Now completely revised, this groundbreaking classic draws on the current research and medical advances in women's health, and includes:
•All you need to know about perimenopause, and why it is critical to your well-being •Updated mammogram guidelines
•Nurturing your brain: sleep, mood, memory
•Hormone therapy and the options available
•Midlife weight control
•Sex and menopause: myths & reality With The Wisdom of Menopause, Dr. Christiane Northrup shows that women can make menopause a time of personal empowerment-emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger than ever before in both mind and body.

Please join me-and the millions of others who have come before and will come after-as we transform and improve our lives, and ultimately our culture, through understanding, applying, and living The Wisdom of Menopause," writes Dr. Christiane Northrup.
