Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price!

if you buy just one menopause book, this is THE one to get. The Herbal Menopause Book includes much good information not only about the herbs and formula combinations but includes a wealth of knowledge on the entire process of menopause. Amanda simply yet thoroughly explains the transformation womens bodies undergo during this incredible time of life. Sound nutritional advise and "wise food choices" are listed under each condition. Amanda also dedicates a whole chapter to the issue of HRT, and how to come off it safely with the use of herbal medicine. The book is not just an herbal - it is filled with widsom and wit all underscored by Amanda's flair for empowering women of all types and ages.

I am a U.S. Herbal Student going through menopause, and collecting Herbals and other natural books on menopause, and this book is by far the worst Herbal I have on the subject. Mrs. Crawford's book is confusing, patronizing, and most of all confusing on the subject. I think any herbalist writing a book on menopause or any other natural book author for that matter should have already gone through or is going through the process herself. Ms. Crawford definitely does not fit this definition.
Her nutritional information is not the last word on nutrition during menopause, and does contain some good information, but she leaves out or limitly deals with such menopausal problems as hypothyroidism, and thining head and pubic hair. Apparently the only problem MS. Crawford thinks is a problem during menopause is that a woman's hair gets a little dry. Except 37% of menopausal women have significant hair loss that needs to be addressed.
She does a good job of explaining how phytoestrogenic herbs actually work and why they do not contain human hormones but in every other respect her book is demeaning to women and confusing to any reader who is not a student of herbal medicine.
And her formula names just about slew me when I read them! Names such as "Temple Gates Elixer", "Love my Life Tea", "Tiger Today, Butterfly Tonight". YIKES!
Do yourself a favor, get Susun Weed's Book, The Menopausal Years, The Wise Woman Way", "Recipies For Change" by Lisa DeAngelis and Molly Siple, and "The Wisdom of Menopause", by Dr. Christine Northup. You may spend more getting three books instead of one, but you will be spared the partronizing attitude and get more useful information in the process.

This book is truly inspiring. I have used Ms. McQuade Crawford's book for years as a reference for myself, my family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Filled with humor, insight, good science, and years of practical herbal knowledge and application, The Herbal Menopause Book helped me and will help you to understand the physical and emotional complexity of menopause. This is a terrific book to introduce the concept of wholistic therapy to both the novice and the experienced healthcare provider. Some may be put off by her light tone, but you get the feeling she really loves what she does, which is helping women. Why bother with health fads when there are qualified herbalists like Ms. McQuade Crawford, and indispensable books like this one.
