Too many women think of menopause as the beginning of the end! After all, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, brain fog, memory lapses, vaginal dryness, lack of libido, weight gain, irritability, and greater risk for heart disease and osteoporosis aren't exactly things to look forward to, right?
Brit-pop icon and outspoken menopause ambassador Meg Mathews refused to move quietly into this stage of midlife. Rejecting the idea that we should live in fear, suffer silently, or medicate ourselves unnecessarily through this hormonal shift, Mathews set out to get answers and advice from the medical establishment, alternative therapists, and her many friends in the midst of "the change." When she launched the Megs Menopause website, it quickly became the trending online destination for pre- and menopausal women all over the world.
Now, in The New Hot, Mathews offers the results of all her research and discussions: the latest information about hormone treatments (hormone replacement therapy and bioidentical hormone therapy), her best tips and techniques for coping with menopausal symptoms (there are officially thirty-four possible symptoms; Mathews has dealt with thirty-two!), and dishy, girlfriend-to-girlfriend advice about what to really expect when you're aging. Entertaining, stylish, and informative, The New Hot will be the resource women everywhere are talking about, learning from, and recommending to one another.
