Book Review:
The Menopause Solution: A Doctor’s Guide to Relieving Hot Flashes, Enjoying Better Sex, Sleeping Well, Controlling Your Weight, and Being Happy!

The Menopause Solution

Stephanie S. Faubion, MD, NCMP
Oxmoor House, April 2016
336 pages

Although many books have been devoted to the topic of menopause, few (if any) are as evidence-based, balanced, up-to-date, and just plain useful as The Menopause Solution: A Doctor’s Guide to Relieving Hot Flashes, Enjoying Better Sex, Sleeping Well, Controlling Your Weight, and Being Happy! by Dr. Stephanie S. Faubion and her colleagues at the Mayo Clinic. Too often, authors of books focused on menopause have an axe to grind: some have been anti or pro

hormone therapy, for instance. In contrast, The Menopause Solution takes a nonjudgmental, down-to-earth, and evenhanded approach to a broad array of menopause-related issues including early menopause, body changes, hot flashes, mood changes, sleep concerns, sexuality, incontinence, weight management, hormone and nonhormone therapy, complementary medicine, breast/skeletal/cardiovascular health, and cognition.

One component of The Menopause Solution I particularly appreciate is how Dr. Faubion incorporates humor into her wise counsel. For example, in the chapter “Embracing the Image in the Mirror,” Dr. Faubion points out that “even 49-year-old Cindy Crawford doesn’t look like 20-year-old Cindy Crawford.”

Women looking for thorough, up-to-date, unbiased, and approachable information on menopause should look no further than The Menopause Solution. Clinicians who care for menopausal women will also find this book informative and may choose to keep one or more on hand to loan to interested patients.
