Menopause is something that affects every woman, with no exceptions, but it doesn’t have to be a “one size fits all” treatment experience as each of our bodies are different and react differently. As one of the nation’s leading experts on menopause and the director of the Women’s Health Clinic in the Department of Internal Medicine at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Stephanie Faubion wrote Mayo Clinic The Menopause Solution: A Doctor’s Guide to: Relieving Hot Flashes, Enjoying Better Sex, Sleeping Well, Controlling Your Weight, and Being Happy! to give you peace of mind on everything from perimenopause to postmenopause, and debunking common myths. Dr. Faubion uses the most up-to-date research and also confronts the controversial topic of hormone therapy.
Women’s Health Magazine asked relationship Psychiatrist Grant Brenner, MD, what’s off limits when trying to comfort a friend that just got dumped. “Avoid saying anything that could leave your friend feeling guilty, ashamed, or to blame for the split,” he replied, and in Irrelationship: How We Use Dysfunctional Relationships to Hide from Intimacy, he and his coauthors delve into the best ways to console a heart broken friend without relying on pandering, stereotypical responses like getting drunk, or how it wasn’t meant to be. Dr. Brenner is an Assistant Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Department of Psychiatry, and has a private practice in New York City.
