Dr. Susan Love's Hormone Book

By Dr. Susan Love and Karen Lindsay

This book is definitely written from the perspective of a doctor who deals extensively with breast disease. She begins by offering a definition of menopause and then describes the medicalization of it. There is a discussion about prevention of serious diseases such as cardio-vascular and osteoporosis and the risks inherent with this decision as well as instruction on understanding research.

She has a chapter on heart disease, breast cancer and endometrial cancer. She offers information on alternatives to hormone replacement therapy such as acupuncture and herbs. One of her closing chapters is a menu of options and another is a pair of questionnaires that lead to decision making about these options. The book concludes with several appendices containing how-to-find information.
