This book aims to empower you with the knowledge of how your body sleeps: that is, your circadian rhythm, changes to your body temperature, and attention to your surroundings and your body needs. Dr. Sunseri gives you the insight of over 30 years of experience in neurology and sleep medicine. She walks with you, like a well-informed friend with tools to traverse this bridge in your life with some guidance and purposeful methods to counteract the spiral of negativity in which so many women find themselves at this juncture in their life. In a little over 100 pages, this educational book provides knowledge on how the body sleeps, questionnaires and sleep diaries. Readers are provided several tear-out pages for convenience. A "Sleeping Well" summary and "Major Helpful Tips" section makes it easy for the reader to quickly reference the material as needed.The first edition of Sleep After Menopause was published in 2015 and was an international success and recognized as a valuable resource by the North American Menopause Society. This second edition is filled with more valuable insights and the latest scientific and medical information, as well as a bonus chapter, "Sex After Menopause", by Dr. Marcia Klein-Patel. "The book is written in a straightforward, conversational manner. As I read it, I was reminded of the direct, informational style of conversation many healthcare providers use when explaining medical conditions and treatment options to their patients. Reading it is rather like attending an ideal office visit with a personable, knowledgeable, caring, and helpful doctor or other medical provider." - Carol L. Gnatuk, MD"Dr. Sunseri's approach to sleep has helped countless numbers of my patients. Her advice has helped patients with long-standing sleep issues, as well as issues related to menopause. She uses a no-nonsense and evidence-based approach that really works. I am excited that her advice will now be able to be disseminated to those who are unable to meet her in person. I highly recommend this book." - Judith Balk, MD, MPH

The impact of menopause on sexuality and how to manage an up-and-down libido. There are chapters on heart health (how to protect it), moods (how to ride them out), and exercise (how to stretch without strain). And finally, why this period of life can be a natural springboard to staying healthy, feeling great, and looking beautiful for the next act of your life. Your Questions, Your Answers: Is it possible that I could get another period after more than a year without one? Losing weight at midlife feels like an uphill battle—what’s the healthiest approach? How do I perform a breast self-exam? Is hormone therapy necessary—and if so, which one is right for me? How effective are Kegel exercises, and how do I do them?

In this scholarly compilation of a major event in the life of every woman, editor Ruth Formanek has adopted an avowedly multidisciplinary mandate: to illuminate menopause as both an event and a stage of life by gathering together a variety of discipline-specific meanings and research perspectives. The result is an admirably comprehensive study that not only charts the premodern meanings of menopause, but proceeds to examine menopause from current biomedical, endocrinological, culutral, and psychological perspectives. Ample attention is give to the psychosocial influences on menopause and to cross-cultural variations in the experience of, and life adjustments that follow, menopause. Societal and familial attitudes toward menopausal women are also explored through an examination of women in classical and modern literature. Clinical contributions review psychoanalytic perspectives on menopause, elucidate the individual meanings of the menopausal experience uncovered in therapy, and consider male views of menopausal women. Collectively, the contributors to this volume remedy the scant attention menopause has heretofore received in the psychological and psychotherapeutic literature. They not only explore the range of issues associated with menopause, but address these issues in the context of the various myths and superstitions about menopause that have endured over the centuries. Essential reading for students of human development, gender issues, and women's studies, The Meanings of Menopause is, for helping professionals, an invaluable source book on a life event fraught with psychological significance.

Interviews with and case studies of women in the U.S., accompanied by research in this text, show how our perceptions, thoughts, and spiritual practices can help women through menopause without drugs and their potential side effects. More and more women today are seeking natural ways to cope with menopause, including through mindfulness techniques and Eastern practices such as meditation. Women of various races, ages, and socioeconomic status interviewed at length for this study explain their experiences, victories, and setbacks in their quests to overcome this natural but body- and brain-altering change. Complementing findings from her research with wider outside research, author Deborah Merrill explains how popular culture depictions, race, class, and education all alter women's perceptions of the meaning of menopause, and how those perceptions can complicate, exacerbate, or alleviate physical and psychological symptoms. She details the "medical view" that views menopause as a problem to be solved, rather than as a natural event. And, through women's words and case studies, she details psychospiritual approaches many are adopting to cope, instead of seeking potentially harmful medicines. Readers will find new insights, wisdom, and potential solutions in the array of voices, experiences, and paths taken and presented in this book. Includes interviews with women of various races, socioeconomic statuses, and ages Addresses the social meaning of menopause and portrayals in popular culture Discusses how some women are turning to lifestyle and diet changes, as well as Eastern practices such as yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to cope with menopause Includes appendices of meditations, dialogues, and resources

René Rizzoli Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when reproductive capacity ends. Ovaries decrease their activity and the production of sex hormones ceases. This period may be associated with a large variety of symptoms affecting the cardiovascular and urogenital systems, as well as skin, hair and bone. Bone capital is accumulated by the end of the second decade and remains more or less constant up to the time of menopause. Sex hormone deficiency leads to accelerated bone turnover, a negative balance and microarchitectural deterioration, which compromises bone strength, thereby increasing bone fragility and, thus, fracture risk. By the age of 80, it is estimated that 50% of trab- ular bone will have been lost. Natural menopause occurs between the ages of 45 and 54 years all over the world. This age does not appear to have changed significantly over the centuries. In contrast, since the middle of the 19th century, life expectancy, particularly in women, has increased considerably, with most women living to the age of 80 years or more in many regions of the world. This means that at the age of 50 years, a woman will live for more than 30 years without bone protection by sex hormones. This r- resents more than one-third of a woman’s life. At the age of 50 years, the lifetime risk to experience a fracture is about 50% (ie, one out of two women will have a fracture during this period).

Designed for physicians and other health care workers, Lifestyle Medicine, Second Edition brings together evidence-based research in multiple health-related fields to assist practitioners both in treating disease and promoting good health. Sections cover nutrition and exercise, behavioral psychology, public policy, and management of a range of disorders, including cardiovascular disease, endocrine and metabolic dysfunction, obesity, cancer, immunology and infectious diseases, pulmonary disorders, and many more.
