New Natural Alternatives to HRT

By Marilyn Glenville

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

Since the first edition of "Natural alternatives to HRT" was published in 1997, a wealth of new knowledge has greatly altered our knowledge of HRT, this edition takes account of those changes. It features a plan of action and looks at the safety of HRT and new designer HRTs.

This book is about choices - knowing what is available and being able to use that information. Dr Marilyn Glenville is sympathetic to women who are not happy or are unsure about the recommendations that their doctor has given them. If you discover that you can control menopausal symptoms naturally, why would you want to take HRT? Given the right tools, diet, nutrition and lifestyle, your body can adapt to this change naturally, efficiently and comfortably without the risks and side effects of HRT.

World Atlas of Wine 8th Edition

Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson
Authors:
Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson

Few wine books can be called classic, but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the essential and most authoritative wine reference work available. This eighth edition will bring readers, both old and new, up to date with the world of wine. To reflect all the changes in the global wine scene over the past six years, the Atlas has grown in size to 416 pages and 22 new maps have been added to the wealth of superb cartography in the book. The text has been given a complete overhaul to address the topics of most vital interest to today's wine-growers and drinkers. With beautiful photography throughout, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have once again joined forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without."The World Atlas of Wine is the single most important reference book on the shelf of any wine student." - Eric Asimov, New York Times "The most useful single volume on wine ever published... If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one." - Andrew Jefford, Decanter"Like a good bottle of wine, you'll find yourself going back to it again and again... Perfect for anyone who has a thirst for greater wine knowledge." - Edward Deitch, NBC/today.com"The World Atlas of Wine belongs on your shelf... The essential rootstock of any true wine lover's library. A multi-layered snapshot of wine and how it has evolved." - Dave McIntyre, Washington Post
