Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause considers menopause as a natural process, not a medical problem. The authors detail typical menopausal symptoms, mainstream and alternative treatments, and risk factors for such conditions as osteoporosis and heart disease. They explain the biology of menopause, provide up-to-date perspectives on hormone replacement therapy (HRT), discuss medical treatments and genetic risk factors, and offer personal reflections by individual women.

This comprehensive guide to menopause features sections on understanding the social and political frameworks of women's health care and nurturing the mind, body, and spirit during years of change.
