UPGRADE by Louann Brizendine

by: Louann Brizendine

At last, someone has reshaped the way women should look at the phases of the menopause (which she has re-named Transition to rid it of its male-centric descriptors), and not be afraid, but energised! Psychiatrist Louann Brizendine has spent most of her professional years treating and talking to women, and thereby developing an in-depth understanding of what happens to us both emotionally and physically as we move through Transition. She is a scientist, so takes some time to inform us about our hormones, chemicals and the female brain and their role throughout our lives, from our fertile years through to post-Transition where in essence they switch off and we are set free. No more will they dominate our decision-making processes so we will find ourselves in a place where we can really grow into our wisdom, strength and resilience.
