One of the most hard-hitting menopause books in its critique of the way the medical establishment views and treats menopause, its purpose is two-fold. Firstly, to tell the "real story" about hormone replacement therapy, its dangers, and why doctors are pushing it; and secondly to offer alternative treatments based on looking at the body and aging from the point of view of health, not pathology. This is an incredibly important book for transforming the myths of aging and bringing women's healing back into the hands of women.
