Menopause

Bridging the Gap Between Natural and Conventional Medicine

It is possible, and natural, to transition gracefully from our reproductive years to our wisdom age.  But sometimes, it takes help along the way. You want to know your treatment options in order to make wise, informed choices at this time of hormonal changes. Menopause: Bridging the Gap Between Conventional and Natural Medicine discusses today’s conventional and alternative treatment options intelligently and without bias. In this clearly-written, balanced and authoritative work, your guides are three experts — a naturopathic physician, a gynecologist, and a psychiatrist who have partnered to produce the most helpful guide on menopause to date.  These doctors explain the different issues,  the pros and cons of the different therapies and discuss why each may or may not be appropriate for you as an individual.  This book will help you choose the mix of conventional and natural therapies that are right for you, with knowledge and confidence.

“A most excellent book! ‘Bridging the Gap…’ is one of the most sane, informative and truly integrative books I’ve read one women’s health. Acknowledging that ‘there is a unique choice available to each woman that is right for her,’ the authors offer us a full spectrum of opportunities and choices for our health and well being. Current research, studies and facts are woven skillfully with personal experiences, women’s testimonies, ‘sharing’, and poetry to create both a medical guide to menopausal health as well as a nourishing and reassuring book for women going through this great change of life. This book gets my highest kudos and will be recommended to every woman I know as she begins her journey through her menopause years.”

” …a thorough, reliable, and an extremely valuable guide for all women facing perimenopause and menopause. Drs.Schoenbeck, Gibson and Barss have accomplished the task of providing everything a woman needs to know to find solutions to her own menopausal issues. I will be pleased to recommend this book to my patients, knowing that the choices they make will be based on accurate information and principles they can trust.”
Tori Hudson, N.D. author of Women’s Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

“A book for women that is clear, well-written, interesting to read, balanced, referenced and full of very helpful information about menopause and ideas for managing menopause. This is uncommon, as similar books are usually infested with biased and self-serving information, and often impart an adversarial tone towards different models of healthcare from what their book ascribes to. The best part about [the] book is that it can serve as a bridge for women, connecting the sometimes wide and confusing chasm between conventional medicine and naturopathic medicine. The intention in [the] book is to serve the best interests of women, not any particular system of healthcare. I will recommend it to all of my menopause patients, and am grateful to the authors for the work they each put in to find “common ground.”
Jane Guiltinan, N.D., Dean of Clinical Affairs, Bastyr University

“The book has worksheets to help women assess their symptoms, look at their risk factors and better understand overall health….and discusses standard and unconventional medicine to alleviating symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, vaginal dryness and weight gain. Menopause…takes a look at the issue from every angle.”
The Salt Lake Tribune
