How To Stop Menopause Before it Starts

http://www.preventingmenopause.com

I happened upon this book by extreme accident and have read it and am now giving it to my Naturalpath who is planning to read it and work with me this issue before I go into full blown 'ovarian failure' which is what menopause is.  

Anyone who has hit menopause or is close to menopause or experiencing the symptoms of peri SHOULD DEFINITELY read this book.  

It is new research and facts by a gal - Beth Rosenshein - who was suffering greatly from all the effects of her hormones shifting and decided to try and figure out what was really happening to her.

I hope this helps as I see many threads relating to hormonal suffering and struggles.

Happy New Year and Blessings to All!

Does this book apply to someone who has had a complete hysterectomy?

Possibly not because Menopause is 'ovaian failure' so if you have no ovaries left...

But if you are on replacement hormones, you might want to research this anyway.  She goes into great detail about HRT and bio-identical hormones versus non-bio-identical, etc.

Before you make such assumptions, you should read the book.

We have been 'taught' about what 'normal female function' is "supposed" to be.

Again, before making such comments you should read the book and then you will understand why I feel this is very important if not to anyone else, certainly to me.

It's nice to know there is someone who has gone deeper and found out we don't have to have ovarian failure but can preserve what Mother Nature intended for us for many many years which is good hormonal health.

Peace...

fmuse, it wasn't intended to offend you, not at all; but only my opinion...and what's that, behind or beyond all...is everytime the point *to do sales*....so far thatswhy I allowed myselve to do this statement....Menopause is a normal statement for every woman to go threw, and here somebody tries to play *godess* games, sorry that my feeling here.....and we are often malinformed only to go for further sales ....even by our FDA's or whatsoever....if you see the foodpyramids...I am getting but I will read this book, and then we might go into further discussions ..ok?

p.s.
I am always looking what's the kind of psychogram of the initiator of the scripts

who has read the health series book on menopause?

Dr D has taken all aspects into consideration, and ha developed an easy to follow complete guide!

I'm with Tomatilla all the way on this one.  I find it an awful notion to think of "preventing menopause", it reminds me of the pills they have now to make it so a woman only menstruates every three months or whatever the interval is.  And I find the term "ovarian failure" to be really offensive to anyone who respects nature and the cyclical nature of everything (including us) that is a part of it.  Menopause is not a failure of one's ovaries.  It is a natural part of the female life cycle.  You cannot prevent menopause or, if you can, imho, you shouldn't.  It is like holding back an ocean tide, damming a river, stopping your periods, removing a dog's vocal chords because the barking is inconvenient or declawing a cat...I could go on.  Menopause is a universal, natural part of the female life cycle.

Sure, take natural supplements, etc., to minimize any challenging symptoms and to balance your system out as much as possible, but that is as far as any "tampering" with the process should go, imho.

This is not meant in any attacking way towards funkymuse, btw, if there was any doubt.  Just to express my abhorrence of the ideas and phrases that the book being discussed puts out there, like "preventing menapause" and, even worse/more objectionable, "ovarian failure".  I'm with Tomatilla.  I have a big problem with both of those ideas/loaded phrases, on so many levels.  I will not be reading that book.

I'm with PTwist and Tomatilla on this one. Do I want to be 80 and having periods!?! Methinks not!!! This is a natural process, menopause, one to be handled with as much love and grace as possible (and sassy attitude), not prevented. I will be curious to see the science behind this, but in the meantime, color me skeptical.

????I had a tubular ligation in the seventies and had uterus removed in the 80's, never been on hormones, never had hot flashes but had some crying spells years ago.  Is it to late for me to benefit from the book??

Quoted from osuzanna
Do I want to be 80 and having periods!?! Methinks not!!!



Now here I was trying to explain why the whole idea and phrasing in the book (at least what I've seen posted and discussed of the book) is cosmically and spiritually abhorrent and offensive to me, and you come along and put it in a much more down-to-earth, clear way **!!!!  omg, too funny.

Seriously, just to get back to the phrase (this phrase is really BUGGING me the more I think on it) of "ovarian failure", it is so loaded!  Who says your ovaries are "failing" just because they are reaching or have reached the end of their productive phase?  They aren't failing, they are "retiring".  So throw an appreciative retirement party, complete with gold watch and many speeches thanking them for their years of service and, if you have kids, the beautiful, miraculous job they did.  Celebrate them and then let them relax at Club Med for the duration.  Don't call them "failures"!  A failure implies that something has gone wrong, that they are failing to work as they are supposed to.  When a machine fails, it fails to work as designed, fails to work properly.  Well, menapause is not that at all!  It isn't that something or a system isn't working as designed, it is proceeding just as planned by nature!  They (your ovaries) have completed their years of service and are now relaxing in the background as nature intended while other things in life take center stage.  All part of the plan, nothing has failed!

But anyway, I'm getting all cosmic again and I really think Osuzanna put it in a much better way *L*!  I'll reiterate her quote again and my response to it, which rang out far and wide from my cubicle:

I'm on the same page with those who think "preventing" menopause is treating it like a disease. Pregnancy has had the same thing happen...it's completely medicalized for most people and instead of being a natural process, it's something a woman is supposed to turn over to the appropriate medical authorities.

I have not read Dr.D's menopause book but will have to check it out.

Well I'm smack bang in the middle of it!!!
Would I change that...actually no!!
I'll tell you why, because when I had my very first hot flush it was in 1999....off I went and started taking HRT. The medics told me that it would take me 'through' the menopause (and they still tell people the same today) but the truth is that it puts the menopause on 'hold'.
So when I stopped taking it....back they came...on and on.....

My SIL had to go through the menopause well into her 60s because of HRT.
I couldn't imagine anything more unnatural than delaying the menopause or never having to go through it....as has been said before, it is a natural part of being a woman and cannot be equated with a malfunction of the body.

I, for one, am loving Menopause...the book and the process.  Like PT, I equated the content of the thread to a TV ad for a drug that prevents menstruation: That scared the bj's outa me. Do I wanna be 80 and having periods? Heck, do I wanna be 55 and having periods? Not really.

I was BORN for menopause...I seem to have an amazing amount of energy, consistently, rather than "cycling".

One more thing....the more I read about "bioidentical hormones" the more skeptical I am. No matter where a hormone comes from (a lab or a wild yam) if it is the same substance your body will react to it the same way. Plus I agree with those who feel that though well-intentioned, compounding pharmacies cannot be consistent with quality or dosage.

Other titles in the 'How to Stop' series to look out for:

How to stop Puberty Before it Starts;

How to Stop Menstruation Before It Starts;

How to Stop Adolescence Before it Starts;

How to Stop Pregnancy Before it Starts (aka the pill)

How to Stop Adulthood Before it Starts;

How to Stop Eating Before it Starts;

How to Stop Thinking Before it Starts;

How to Stop Sex Before it Starts;

How to Just Stop.



And then there's the retrospective 'How to Stop Series' including:

How to Stop Your Own Conception;

How to Stop Death Before it Starts; and best of all,

How to Stop the How to Stop Menopause Before it Starts.
