Women need estrogen, but it's a fact that the hormone diminishes with age. Most women from their forties on won't produce enough to prevent or minimize the short-term symptoms of menopause--hot flashes, night sweats, fuzzy thinking--or help to safeguard their hearts and bones for the rest of their lives. There are 40 million menopausal women in America today who face the frightening reality that traditional hormone replacement therapy, which restores estrogen through pills, often causes distressing symptoms and appears to require long-term use in order to secure long-term benefits. Moreover, long-term use seems to increase the risk of breast cancer. Nina Shandler discovered the exciting news that estrogen occurs naturally in certain foods, primarily soy and flaxseed, which can be used as ingredients in every kind of recipe imaginable, from breakfast bars to soups, main courses and desserts. In Estrogen: The Natural Way she shows how you can do a gentle yet effective version of estrogen replacement therapy using the kitchen instead of the drugstore.
