Description: Imagine your life without the hot flashes, irritability and stress. Are you overwhelmed by all the conflicting information from the media about recognizing and treating menopause symptoms? Get the facts about menopause from a source you can trust — www.vibrantnation.com. About the author: As director of the Center for Specialized Women’s Health at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Holly L.

REVIEW by Linda J. Pedley:
Getting the facts about any condition or concern is important to everyone but exploring all the known and little known facts about menopause is invaluable to all women approaching or in the throws of this stage of life. It is equally important to have this information in an easy to read and understandable format and that is what I discovered with the publication offered by Vibrant Nation on menopause. Dr. Holly L. Thacker, director of the Center for Specialized Women’s Health, approaches this topic with a fresh and simple to follow process. The comprehensive guide, Recognizing and Treating Menopause Symptoms, is not only informative but it confirms support of me, as a woman now in menopause. It not only made me realize that I am not alone in this process but I am also an individual who cannot be lumped into the diagnoses of all women at this stage of life. My experience may be totally different from those around me or it may encompass all the known symptoms of this time of life. Dr. Thacker’s renowned experience and ability to work one-on-one with patients allows her precious insight into the myriad of symptoms associated with this phase of life process.
Personally, I don’t have a family point of reference to compare myself to for many reasons. Questions I may have had, came up long past the lives of my great-grandmother and grandmother; my mother had a hysterectomy when I was only in high school; recently, my sister’s breast cancer diagnosis and hormone suppressing treatment put her unnaturally and immediately into menopause and she is three years younger than I am. At 53, I am lucky to report that I have no severe or annoying obvious symptoms and have been menopausal now for two years.
The Guide is a wealth of practical and right-to-the point information that will answer and address concerns for all women with questions on menopause. The most important confirmation for me was the fact that despite it being “something everyone goes through” I am still an individual and with the right guidance (information, doctor’s advice, and lifestyle practices) I can still be a “vibrant and happy” woman.
