After reading several more medically oriented books and leaving feeling more confused about hormone therapy and less confident about whether my symptoms were even normal menopause or something else, I now have Susun Weed a.k.a. Grandmother Growth reassuring me that all I am experiencing is normal and healthy -- and not only that, it's OK to take time away! Thank you Susun Weed.
My acupuncturist recommend this book for me. Ms. Weed, had more common sense than my medical doctor had when helping with my post hysterectomy hot flashes issues. All the doctors did was put me on hormones (Bio-ID) that did not work for my issues with my hormonal issues. It seems that my diet needed to be changed (there were some really good recommendations in this book) and I needed to cool down my liver (which was contributing to my hot flashes).
Great book. I would recommend using this book in addition to getting support and guidance form your integrative doctor or acupuncturists. They (most do) know more about nutrition and herbs.
