You have been misled about menopause. This comprehensive guide based on the latest research in aging, women’s health, and HRT dispels decades of misinformation.

The Great Menopause Myth is your essential resource for optimized menopause care.

More than simply an end to fertility, menopause is a time when a woman’s health can spin out of control. The hormonal shifts of menopause impact everything from body composition and immune system function to increased risk of chronic health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, dementia, heart disease, and osteoporosis.

If you’re lucky enough to even be offered menopause treatment, traditional protocols, based on decades-old shoddy science and erroneous research conclusions, have gotten it wrong. Badly wrong. For years, conventional wisdom—and medical practice—have told women nothing needs to change in their lifestyle or healthcare at midlife, and they should just white-knuckle the discomfort of hot flashes, sleeplessness, weight gain and loss of muscle mass, mood swings, painful sex, joint pain, and incontinence as if it will all just (magically) go away in a decade or two.

The Great Menopause Myth shows you how to age wise and well at midlife and beyond. Learn actionable steps and guidelines to curate an optimized menopause regimen based on your unique health considerations.

  • Nutrition, exercise, and sleep hygiene at midlife: Best practices for aging healthy 
  • Thyropause, fatty liver disease, and gut health: The overlooked systems that need attention during menopause
  • HRT or MHT: What is the difference and does it matter? (hint: it does!!)
  • Not all HRT is created equal: Low dose or physiologic? Static or rhythmic? Continuous or cyclic? Creams, gels, patches, injections, pills, or pellets? Learn how to choose the best option for you.
  • When HRT is truly not an option: Supplements and integrative options for menopause care

Centered on your overall health and happiness, The Great Menopause Myth offers a welcome new narrative on menopause.
