Menopause and the Mind
The Complete Guide to Coping With Memory Loss, Foggy Thinking, Verbal Slips, and Other Cognitive Effects of Perimenopause and MenopauseBook - 1999
"Menopause and the Mind gives every woman the survival kit she needs to manage the thinking and memory symptoms - long overlooked by the medical establishment - that accompany the onset of perimenopause and menopause." "Neuropsychologist Claire Warga provides the first scientific explanation for this common "hormonal misconnection" syndrome. Drawing upon recent brain and clinical research, she shows that forgetfulness, malapropisms, and lost concentration are not manifestations of dementia or senility: instead, they result from the depletion of estrogen in the brain cells of women as they enter perimenopause and menopause. Armed with this knowledge, Warga offers women a breakthrough plan for regaining control and confidence in their minds." "Warga explains the full range of thinking, speech, short- and long-term memory, behavior, spatial, and time sense symptoms in extensive detail, complete with an array of examples. Most important are a self-screening test and symptom chart that every women can use to understand the extent of her symptoms and accurately assess her condition, with or without her ob/gyn. Women can also make practical use of Warga's detailed guide to treatment options, which include estrogen therapy, dietary and behavioral changes, and techniques for improving memory."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
