Menopause In An Hour

Media Review:
Menopause In An Hour


Menopause In An Hour coverTara Allmen, MD, FACOG, NCMP
2010; 70 minutes

This DVD is a wonderful resource for women in perimenopause and the menopausal transition. Dr. Allmen begins by presenting definitions of perimenopause and menopause, as well as a description of the symptoms associated with each. She then outlines a plan to address troublesome symptoms, beginning with “living a loving lifestyle.” Her six-point plan to address the symptoms without medication includes such helpful and healthful suggestions as physical exercise, eating more of the “good stuff,” and less of the foods that are not healthy for us. She discusses the importance of better hydration and keeping a daily diary of foods, stress, exercise, and symptoms. She ends this section with the suggestion to “live, give, and love more,” thereby giving life a purpose. If a woman finds that these lifestyle changes are not sufficient for treating symptoms, Dr. Allmen also presents the non-prescription options currently available. This is followed by an excellent and thorough description of the risks and benefits of hormone therapy, including bioidentical hormones. The DVD concludes with some suggestions for making the most of an appointment with a physician, as well as testimonials from some of Dr. Allmen's patients.

This DVD was produced as a guide for her patients, but I would recommend it to my patients as a concise summary of many of the issues faced by menopausal women as they maneuver through this time of life.
