Menopause Matters

Your Guide to a Long and Healthy Life

Menopause Matters is a complete guide for improving a woman's physical and mental health from age 35 and on.

Gynecologist and menopause specialist Dr. Julia Schlam Edelman has helped thousands of women feel better and enjoy healthier lives. Scientifically sound and clinically tested, Dr. Edelman's advice is a welcome alternative to the often misleading, conflicting, and confusing sound bites in media reports on women's health issues. Menopause Matters covers the full spectrum of topics of vital interest to perimenopausal and postmenopausal women: hot flashes, vaginal dryness, memory loss, mood changes, depression, hormone replacement therapy, sleep, diet, exercise, healthy sex, and contraception.

In a class by itself when it comes to menopause books, Menopause Matters:

promotes informed collaboration between women and their doctors,
advises women to improve their health based on findings in respected research studies,
provides clear explanations of physiology and anatomy, and
relates stories from real women who have experienced all stages of menopause.

Dr. Edelman includes prevention strategies for lowering the risks of heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. And her practical hints about how to take supplements and medication for maximum benefit are invaluable.

Menopause Matters empowers women to be active partners with their physicians during midlife and beyond. No woman will read the book without experiencing at least one big wake-up call about how to live a happier, healthier life.

Reviews

"Resembles a sit-down talk with a trusted physician . . . With clarity and confidence, Edelman addresses a wide range of essential and timely topics in this information-packed primer for women entering perimenopause and beyond."—Publishers Weekly

"This is both a guide through the often confusing stories in the media and a tool for taking control of one's health care."—Library Journal

"Menopause does matter, and I will be encouraging my family, friends, patients, and colleagues to read this wonderful book. Dr. Edelman provides practical advice on reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease, as well as improving sleep, memory, bone strength, and sexual pleasure. Case histories using women's own words bring the material to life."—Jan Leslie Shifren, M.D., Director, Vincent Menopause Program, Massachusetts General Hospital

"In a world besieged by misinformation through outrageous marketing, hype, and unproven promises, it is like a breath of fresh air to finally read a well-balanced and scientifically-based book about menopause and the issues regarding hormone and other treatments. This book will answer your questions."—Wulf H. Utian, M.D., Ph.D., DSc, Executive Director, The North American Menopause Society

"Menopause Matters covers so much more than menopause. It is a comprehensive medical guide for all women in their thirties and beyond. Especially important now, when women are being barraged with data on topics like 'bioidentical hormones,' Dr. Edelman offers expert guidance that truly will help women make informed decisions about their health."—Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., Yale University School of Medicine, and Women's Health Advisor, Prevention magazine

"Wise, witty, and wonderfully up-to-date, Dr. Edelman's compendium is the definitive guide for women navigating the perimenopausal and menopausal years. Debunking the quick fixes, explaining the hot topics in depth, offering step-by-step instructions for starting and maintaining preventive self-care—this user-friendly handbook has it all. A priceless gift."—Nanette Santoro, M.D., Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center

"This user-friendly book for women approaching menopauses uses minimal medical jargon and personalizes the different topics."—Doody's Review Service

"Edelman's title is a double entendre-Menopause does impact everyone and there are many aspects to this physiologic milestone . . . This book is not a dictation of orders from a physician author but a careful sharing of quite important information in a manner to be retained and applied."—Kathleen A. Handal, MD, National Association of Medical Communicators

"Exploding many myths and unfounded guidelines, Dr. Julia Edelman takes women's health to a whole new and helpful level with this wonderful guidebook to mid-life and beyond . . . She approaches these topics from a perspective of respect and caring that I found both refreshing and supportive."—Jeanine M. Swenson, MD, LMFT, National Association of Medical Communicators
