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.
