Der Klassiker der Gesundheitsliteratur komplett aktualisiert und überarbeitet! Christiane Northrup ist in den USA die Koryphäe auf dem Gebiet der Frauenheilkunde. Sie beschreibt offen, klar und einfühlsam die Veränderungen, die Frauen zwischen 40 und 55 erwarten. Dabei räumt sie gründlich auf mit der gängigen Vorstellung, dass sich hinter dem Begriff „Wechseljahre“ einfach eine Ansammlung körperlicher Probleme verbirgt, die – am besten mit Hormonen! – behandelt werden müssen. Die Wechseljahre sind vielmehr ein körperlicher und geistiger Umwälzungsprozess, der Frauen eine echte Chance zum Wachstum bietet – wenn es ihnen gelingt, auf ihre innere Stimme zu hören. Northrup deckt den Zusammenhang zwischen den Wechseljahren und dem emotionalen Leben einer Frau auf und beschreibt unter anderem, wie die Wechseljahre zu einer Verschiebung der weiblichen Prioritäten führen, wie Frauen klimakterische Beschwerden als Weckrufe ihres Körpers erkennen können, wie sich hormonelle Veränderungen auf die Sexualität auswirken, wie Frauen mit den Veränderungen ihres Äußeren umgehen oder sich vor Herzerkrankungen, Alzheimer und Krebs schützen können. Northrup ermutigt Frauen, die Botschaften ihres Körpers zu verstehen, die Wechseljahre als eine Zeit der positiven Energie zu begreifen und die wunderbare Kraft dieser Lebensphase für ihre persönliche Entwicklung zu nutzen. In der Neuauflage des Bestsellers hat Northrup die neuesten Studien und Fallbeispiele zusammengetragen und berichtet mit ihrer reichen Erfahrung aus ihrer Praxis.

Die Göttin in sich entdecken. Älterwerden ist nicht gleichbedeutend mit dem Verlust der Gesundheit, Schönheit oder dem Abgleiten in kulturelle Bedeutungslosigkeit. Niemand könnte das eindringlicher, überzeugender und leidenschaftlicher postulieren als die weltweit renommierte Gynäkologin und Bestsellerautorin Christiane Northrup. Bereits mit »Frauenkörper, Frauenweisheit« und »Weisheit der Wechseljahre« ermutigte sie unzählige Frauen, ihrem ureigenen intuitiven (Körper-) Wissen zu vertrauen. Nun führt sie in das Geheimnis der Alterslosigkeit ein. Dabei geht es ihr um nichts weniger als die Emanzipation von allen Vorurteilen der Gesellschaft gegenüber dem Älterwerden, von den Erwartungen »der anderen« und auch von den Einflüsterungen der Ärzte. Sie fordert dazu auf, endlich all das zu tun, was Frauen zu alterslosen Göttinnen macht: die Selbstheilungskräfte stärken, optimale Ernährung, u. a. mit Superfoods, die Freizeit erfüllend gestalten, sich der spirituellen Dimension öffnen – um maximal sinnlich, vital und freudvoll zu leben.

Now in paper--the first truly holistic, comprehensive book on experiencing a healthy, symptom-free menopause using ayurvedic medicine - the ancient system from India that has been popularized in the West by Deepak Chopra. Answers the need for healthy ways to approach menopause without the now-controversial use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Nancy Lonsdorf, MD, also the author of A Woman's Best Medicine (Tarcher, over 35,000 copies sold), shows readers how to personalize the program through a quiz that determines where imbalances lie and offering recommendations for each woman's unique symptoms. The approach is completely natural - a huge plus for the many women who are reluctant to take hormone replacement therapy. That number is growing as more and more research questions the supposed benefits of HRT - and warns of its dangers. The author is a leading voice in ayurvedic approaches to women's health, and also has impeccable western medical credentials, having received her MD from Johns Hopkins Medical School and done her residency at Stanford University Medical School. She specializes in combining the best of western medicine with natural, gentle, ayurvedic treatments.
