The Natural Menopause Plan by Maryon Stewart is a must-read for those who are impending menopause or deep in the heart of it. The first part of The Natural Menopause Plan is an explanation of what menopause is, the symptoms, and natural solutions to help relieve symptoms – diet, supplements, therapies, and more. I found this part of the book so helpful. Without doing tons of research online or short of someone giving you all the answers, the author simply spells out what’s happening (or what to expect) beginning at perimenopause and suggestions on how to breeze through with a minimum of discomfort. And while women have the option of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), it’s not always a good solution depending on your situation. Some women can’t use HRT because of cancer. So what options do they have? Thankfully, this book has solutions to make this transition better. These are just some of the topics The Natural Menopause Plan covers • Hot flashes/Night sweats • Sexual problems • Headaches • Emotional symptoms • Insomnia • Dry skin/Wrinkles • Aching joints Next, the author discusses how consuming certain foods and supplements can help with the symptoms of menopause. She spells everything out to make it easy for you to follow and to find what works for your particular symptoms. The book goes as far as suggesting herbal medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture and acupressure, cranial osteopathy relaxation therapy, exercise, and habit changes. Part 2 of The Natural Menopause Plan is a very extensive index of 90 recipes containing nutrients that are helpful for those with menopause. They are grouped according to meals and include desserts, cakes, breads, and snacks. There are even meal plans to make eating simple. I was impressed with the list of the nutrient content of foods. The author even included references and resources.
