'Where are you going dressed like that?'; 'I never did that at your age'; 'You were such a lovely baby.'; 'Where did I go wrong?'Ring any bells? If you've ever been exposed to the teenage maelstrom of hormones, angst, fear and anger you'll recognise the sentiments. But what about the mothers? Who helps them to help themselves, and their daughters? For the first time, mothers talk with humour, pathos, candour, insight and, ultimately, optimism about rejection and separation, love and sex, drugs, alcohol, menstruation and the mother-daughter bond. From the mother of the author of the American bestseller Ophelia Speaks, Ophelia's Mum draws on the feelings and uncertainties of hundreds of mothers to show that you're not crazy, and you're certainly not alone in your frustration, confusion and exhilaration over raising an adolescent daughter.
Women need estrogen, but estrogen levels diminish with age. In the short term, estrogen's departure leaves most women in a frequently overheated, uncomfortable state. In the long term, its exodus places their hearts, bones, and brains in harm's way. And conventional hormone replacement therapy, with its potentially distressing side effects and increased risk of breast cancer, doesn't provide a reassuring rescue. Faced with every menopausal woman's frightening estrogen dilemma, Nina Shandler discovered exciting news: Some foods contain estrogen. She headed straight for the kitchen and created this easy-to-swallow alternative. Part eating program, part cookbook, Estrogen: The Nat-ural Way shows women how to make fast, fun food using nature's estrogenic ingredients. From breakfast bars to soups, from main courses to desserts, Estrogen: The Natural Way provides a gentle yet effective version of estrogen replacement therapy.
