The perimenopausal years can start as early as age thirty-five and last for up to ten years. This transitional period in a woman's life has often been misdiagnosed or ignored. Now Stephanie Bender, an expert in women's hormonal health, sounds a wake-up call for the confusing years before menopause, which require special emotional, dietary, and health guidance.The Power of Perimenopause explains how symptoms such as irregular cycles, night sweats and insomnia, decreased libido, memory lapses, and mood swings can be traced to fluctuating hormones. It gives detailed recommendations on how to use both conventional and alternative approaches to lessen symptoms, including the most up-to-date research and new treatments. Bender also goes beyond medical advice to show women how all facets of their lives, from diet to attitude to lifestyle, can be transformed to make this an exciting and productive phase. Perimenopause is a time when women can reconsider their beliefs and priorities with newfound wisdom--perhaps discarding outmoded images of female beauty and examining their relationships with lovers and family on a deeper level. The Power of Perimenopause explores this neglected age with practical ways to enhance the quality of all areas of women's lives.
  • I have done a great deal of research into perimenopause and this book is the most clearly written and informative book I have found. It nicely balances the most up-to-date traditional medical ideas with a realistic view of nutritional, natural and alternative possiblities. I learned more about hormone cycles, perimenopause symptoms, recommended tests and treatment alternatives from this book than any other source. If you even think that you may be going through the preliminary stages of menopause and want to understand what is happening to your body, buy this book.

  • Didn't buy this for myself but for a friend. She read someone else's copy and wanted one for herself.

  • THANK YOU Ms. Bender! This was like reading the last 10 years of my life....There is so much help in this 1 incredible book, I hardly know what to praise. It's very balanced giving information all many aspects of perimenopause & ways to treat it. She really stresses, that it's natural & not everyone's is the same. So there is some trial & error in finding what works for "YOU", "no 1 pill & it's all gone." But she explains the WHY, & gives very good starting points to explore making it through what can be a very rough time, easier. I found myself cheered & looking forward to finding better ways for my own dealing with these changes. Some things as simple as WALK more... personally my dog will love it!

  • Stephanie Bender's best selling book The Power of Perimenopause is a concise, extensive and very reader friendly guide to perimenopause. As the editor and creator of HotFlash! the perimenopause/menopause web site and online support group, I have interviewed Ms. Bender. Her enthusiasm and knowledge about women and perimenopause is amazing. Ms. Bender combines both common sense and the best of science to present us with a wonderful guide book to navigate the often turbulent times of perimenopause. I highly recommend her book in my online support group and for any woman going through or preparing for perimenopause. It's a great idea to have the man in your life read the book with you too : ).

  • Every page of The Power of Perimenopause is a gift. Perimenopause was a confusing and often trying time for me. No-one prepared me for the emotional and physical rollercoaster I would be on during those critical years before "the change." I was often frightened or worried that something was wrong with me. This book clarified it all. It is beautifully written, and compelling to read. Even the science is accessible and easy to grasp. I came away from reading The Power of Perimenopause with a whole new understanding about my body. I truly felt empowered by the information in this book and all of the options it offers a woman for a healthy, happy life.

  • To begin, with I am going through perimenapause myself. I found her book to be very insightful to every aspect of a woman's life during this period. Stephanie writes with such understanding, wisdom and knowledge that I find myself sharing her book with everyone whom I feel would benefit, even people I barely know. It is similar to teenage years when you don't think anyone understands or is going through the same things you are, then you find out that someone does understand and has been there and done that and has suggestions to help you through it. You don't feel so alone. With Stephanie's book you know there's hope for a brighter today and tomorrow.I am looking forward to her next release.

  • Filled with stories of patients, fan mail from readers, and self-serving descriptions of dialogs with women. The text is poorly organized so it is difficult to find and research specific symptoms.
    The answer to most symptoms, such as insomnia, are herbal remedies which may or may not work, depending on the woman. There is a discussion of hrt, but you can learn more reading the latest issue of Ladies Home Journal, or some other woman's magazine.
    The book was disappointing on several levels, but if you like to commiserate with other women (and their spouses) going thru this life cycle - and who doesn't? - then this book may make you feel better.

  • Benders' book was a God Send. When my wife was first going through her hormonal turmoil I sought out and e-mailed Ms. Bender. Her kind words and insight prompted me to purchase a copy of her book. It was filled with tremendous insight and helped me not only to be a better husband but more supportive of the transition my wife was and continues to go through. This book should be considered the "Bible" for all supportive husbands and manditory reading for all couples who go through a Pre-marital course prior to getting marriage. Her insight and direction is in plain and understandable words and highlights the varied journey a woman will go through prior to her menopausal transition. Thank you Stephanie from my family.
