Abstract:

Millions of women are approaching menopause or going through it now. And though estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) is prescribed for most American women by most American doctors, statistics tell us that only 15 percent of us take the drug. Why? Some women are advised not to take ERT for medical reasons; even more are simply ambivalent about its use.

Dee Ito, a forty-five-year-old journalist specializing in health issues, was one of the women who decided she did not want to be dependent on a chemically synthesized substance. She spent three years researching her options and reports her fascinating, helpful, and very specific findings in Without Estrogen, the first comprehensive, in-depth book on how menopausal symptoms can be effectively managed without drugs.

Ito presents interviews with twelve alternate practitioners, including a homeopath, a healer, an herbalist, an acupuncturist, chiropractors, a practitioner of Chinese medicine, an aromatherapist, a hypnotist, body work therapists, and a nutritionist. She has also interviewed a dozen women between the ages of forty-five and eighty who have sought out alternate specialists and who describe their programs, or who have organized regimens for themselves.

Some programs include herbs containing estrogenic properties, such as black cohosh, used by Native American women, and dong quai, prescribed by Chinese doctors to diminish hot flashes. Others rely on homeopathic remedies, herbs, vitamins, special baths, cell salts, and exercise. Specific information for each regimen is provided including actual supplement dosages. Though the programs differ, all have been developed to enhance total well being, both psychological and physical.

Without Estrogen can inspire every woman to create her own program for distress-free menopause and glowing health now and through the years to come.
