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.
It DOES get a little WOO-WOO, about how we're coming into our own now, and yet she's sort of right about us coming into our own finally, not just as someone's daughter, girlfriend, wife, mother. I bought a copy to keep on my shelf and I normally will borrow books from the library rather than buy.
My personal experience: I had some flooding that lasted more than a few days. Conventional treatment may have led to having some of my female parts removed, but following Susun's guidelines I tried some tinctures that brought everything back into balance. No more bleeding, and I've still got all my parts!
(Obviously: Not a substitution for obtaining real medical advice.)
