A new and demographically significant generation of women as young as 35 is facing perimenopause and menopause – but not like our mothers or grandmothers did. We are hungry for information and keen to talk candidly about everything: sex, mental health, self-image, alcohol, how menopause affects our stressful working lives, relationships, fertility and families – and what we can do about it. Author Niki Bezzant has more than 20 years’ experience writing and speaking about health and nutrition. In this book, she shares all the latest research and advice, giving readers real information they can use on everything from recognizing and understanding common symptoms like mood changes, weight gain, low libido, erratic and heavy periods, hot flushes and insomnia, to managing mental health, sexuality and relationships, exercise and nutrition tips. She explains which natural and medical treatments actually work and how to get the best help, with a healthy side-serve of humour, calling out sexism, snake-oil and bullshit along the way.

This Changes Everything includes menopause stories from well-known NZ women including Robyn Malcolm, C arol Hirschfeld and Michele A’C ourt, plus real talk from hundreds of NZ women, based on the author’s wide-ranging online survey and expert information from menopause specialists and doctors, to answer the questions women most want answered. This is a must-have guide to perimenopause, menopause, midlife and beyond for every woman – the symptoms, the solutions and the stuff that really works.
