I prefer a more science-centered approach. The book pretty much starts out by blaming women for their fibroids, breast cancer, uterine cancer, and other health ills. In a common "New Age" style "Your reality is your problem attitude" and results from your thinking, the author, supposedly a medical MD, states that by denying our true selves we make ourselves sick. Here, let me think myself out of debilitating pain. Way to go on blaming the victim. Menopause is hard enough without being blamed for physical symptoms resulting from a lack of estrogen. About half of women will have pain during menopause (and peri-menopause) - Period - The top 40 pain causing items are absolutely miserable. Find a book that doesn't make you feel worse about it.

Dr. Northrup's book is well-written and highly informative. I particularly appreciate that she shares stories of her own journey through menopause. Some of her suggestions may be less appropriate for the Canadian healthcare system, and other suggestions will be out of reach for those with slimmer wallets. Nonetheless, I found something I could use in every section, and the fundamental principle - that women must re-evaluate their lives while their bodies and minds change during menopause - is thoroughly substantiated.
