Over the past 20 years Maryon Stewart has helped over a million women worldwide alleviate the symptoms of menopause and other hormonally-based conditions. The effects of menopause can be utterly debilitating for women, and can destroy their physical, mental and emotional health for long periods - and often their careers and relationships too. In this book Maryon Stewart outlines her incredibly successful holistic approach to menopause, explaining how you can alleviate the symptoms through diet, exercise, herbal remedies and relaxation. She shows you how to treat the effects of the menopause, and how you can use checklists and symptom diaries to tailor the programme to your individual needs. The plan provides a chemical-free alternative to hormone replacement therapy - freeing you of the symptoms of menopause without the alarming side-effects of drugs and helping women to enter the mid-life healthier and happier than ever. Beat Menopause Naturally includes meal plans and more than 80 recipes for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, dinners and desserts. Women who have followed the programme emphasise that menopause no longer has to mean the end of life as you know it.
