About The Book
Based on his groundbreaking work in the field of fertility and menopause, Machelle Seibel, M.D., reveals how the soybean and its by-products afford new hope to menopausal women. Alleviating symptoms ranging from hot flashes and sleeplessness to vaginal dryness and weight gain, and reducing the risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes, soy provides a natural and safe alternative to commonly recommended treatments. For the millions of women concerned that hormone replacement therapy may increase the risk of blood clotting and breast and uterine cancer, soy provides a superb alternative.
Here Seibel explains how the female body processes soy, how soy products naturally restore hormonal balance by behaving like estrogen, and how to add soy to your diet for maximum effect. For the 1.5 million American women who turn fifty each year, The Soy Solution for Menopause is an invaluable companion -- a striking breakthrough in the quest to ease a natural but difficult transition.
