Here’s what the reviewer for the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) said about the book:
A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Aging: 7 Proven Ways to Keep You Vibrant, Happy & Strong by Vivien Brown, MD, provides practical tips to empower women transitioning through midlife to optimize their health and overall wellbeing. This thoughtful, easy-to-read guide is an open, honest conversation with a friend who just happens to be a doctor of 35 years.
The title says it all, 7 Proven Ways to Keep You Vibrant, Happy & Strong. Midlife is the period in a woman’s life often filled with complex physical and mental change. Many of the changes can be overwhelming and vary from day to day and woman to woman. It’s no wonder women have a difficult time communicating their frustration to their families let alone their healthcare providers. This book can be a resource for women navigating this natural transition. It’s broken down into 7 chapters that address the aging process in women and common misconceptions with clear, concise language. Dr. Brown shares women’s stories and anecdotes to help drive the message home that “It’s never too early, or too late, to start moving in the direction of a vital and independent old age.” From how much calcium is enough, how can I improve sleep quality, how can I prevent heart disease and hip fracture, to what can I do to stay healthy and vibrant; Dr. Brown tackles it all in a straightforward, encouraging manner.
Here a few examples of Dr. Brown’s advice:
“…To be as beneficial as possible, exercise should help you decrease your stress level, not increase it. It should be something that helps you really enjoy your life.”
“If you are wondering whether hormone therapy is safe, the answer is a qualified yes. Initiating hormone therapy is now considered an acceptable option for relatively young women (up to age 59) and for healthy women who are bothered by menopausal symptoms if they are within 10 years of menopause.”
I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book and learn a lot. Learn more about this ONLINE event and register here.
