The Secret Pleasures of Menopause Playbook
A Guide to Creating Vibrant Health Through Pleasure
Hardcover      ISBN: 1401924018
Why a Playbook: When I was writing The Secret Pleasures of Menopause, I began to hear more and more stories from other women about exactly what I was writing about: how opening up to and expanding joy and pleasure in midlife creates vibrant health physically, emotionally, and spiritually—including the best sex of your life. I was inspired by the many touching and creative stories I was hearing from women who definitely saw midlife as the start of the absolute best years of their lives. So I decided to put together a playbook (as opposed to a workbook) that you could use as a companion to The Secret Pleasures of Menopause—a book that would provide you with specific examples of what real, live women just like you are actually doing to enhance their levels of life-giving nitric oxide through pleasure. In these pages, you’ll meet women with strong, passionate life forces who respect and love themselves enough to speak their truth; heal their pasts; and let go of mindsets, relationships, and behaviours that no longer serve them. They also don’t hesitate to kick up their heels and have a great time, doing whatever makes their hearts sing. The upshot: They’ve been able to stoke their inner fire and cultivate pleasure, joy, and vibrant health on every level and with every breath. Let this book be your personal guide to the territory of life-giving pleasure. And make sure that you use the space provided to write down and commit to your own personal pleasure plan.

Embracing Menopause Naturally
Stories, Portraits, And Recipes
Paperback      ISBN: 075700296x
We are familiar with its symptoms: hot flashes, night sweats, and more. While menopause triggers physical changes, it also brings forth spiritual issues that, for many women, mark a redefinition of the feminine self. To address the impact of menopause, Gabriele Kushi has created a practical guide to dealing with this special time. The author first provides a clear understanding of the overall process of menopause, from biological changes to emotional challenges. She then offers research-based nutritional guidelines that can help relieve menopausal symptoms, as well as healthful kitchen-tested recipes based on a natural foods diet. However, it is the stories and portraits of twenty menopausal women that are the heart and soul of the book. Here is a true companion for any woman who wants to nurture her own spiritual growth, adopt a natural foods diet, and enjoy good health throughout the midlife years.
