UK Kirkus Review »
Huge tome which injects a spiritual and anthropological perspective into discussion of the raw physical effects and hormonal influences of the menopause. It offers a guide not only to smooth the transition itself but also to deal with the health hazards such as osteoporosis which afflict women more in later life, emphasizing natural alternatives to hormone replacement therapy. Written by highly successful fitness guru Kenton, it inevitably includes advice on diet and exercise, as well as herbs and natural progesterone, and also spans a vast emotional range, from the difficulties women currently face to the myths and customs of more ancient civilisations, emphasizing throughout that menopause can be seen as a time of creativity and celebration.
