This is the first book to offer women an individualized treatment for the symptoms of menopause. In What's Your Menopause Type? Dr. Collins has identified 12 distinct menopause types® and developed a treatment for each. With this unique book, Dr. Collins shows women how to determine their own menopause type® and then prescribes a nutritional, herbal, glandular, and hormonal treatment program to manage the symptoms for each type. He also provides women with a complete description of hormones and their effects on the body, a questionnaire for the reader to determine her menopause type® , advice on how to order consumer-direct hormone tests, and suggestions for choosing a "hormone-educated" doctor.
A Naturopathic Physician invites women to identify their menopause type to develop their own personal program to reduce symptoms and find relief.
