This book about Menopause provides practitioners a comprehensive guide to menopause and the years that follow, bringing together modern biomedical research and ancient wisdom to provide practitioners with an integrated approach to treatment.

The text is largely based on the teachings of renowned and highly-experienced traditional Chinese and East Asian medicine (TCEAM) practitioners, including Suzanne Cochrane, Brian Grosam, Honora Lee Wolfe, Giovanni Maciocia, Rebecca Avern, Peter Deadman, Anastacïa White, Julian Scott, and Bob Flaws. It includes information provided by experts in related fields such as Bruce Robinson, M.D., and naturopathic nutritionist Susan Kath.

The physiology of menopause is discussed from both eastern and western perspectives, pattern differentiation, and treatment frameworks for some of the most common menopausal symptoms as well as in-depth lifestyle and self-care advice. A variety of conditions that frequently affect women following menopause are also described.

A magnificent compendium of TCM and five element approaches to promoting patient wellness during and after the menopausal transition. The authors convey an extraordinary amount of biomedical and TEAM information in concise, manageable bites that will be easy to re-reference in clinic. Tables and illustrations are plentiful, attractively presented, and extremely helpful. In particular the practitioner who is interested in womens health, but has not been seeing optimal results with standard TCM approaches, can reasonably expect to level up in their effectiveness with peri- and postmenopausal patients after studying with this book.
