Go From Menopause Mayhem To Menopause Zen

Have you been trying to manage your menopause symptoms?  And nothing’s working?

This page is dedicated to resources we’ve found … both on and off the internet … that we think might help you get to “Menopause Zen”.

Of course, it would be great if you were able to get rid of all your hot flashes and other menopause symptoms, but in order to get to Menopause Zen, first you’re going to have to learn how to live with your symptoms. 

Then, you have to figure out how to take back control of who you are becoming as you enter this new phase in life.

So here are some resources we’ve found that may help you through this lovely! time of massive change.

Best Books On Menopause

This is one of the best books on menopause that we have read.  It explains what is going on in clear, simple language.  And it has a very different perspective on menopause and its place in a woman’s life.  Rather than seeing seeing women going through menopause as “broken” it celebrates this amazing, life-changing process and challenges us to embrace it and take back control.

Book cover for "The Wisdom Of Menopause - creating physical and emotional health during the change" by Christiane Northrup, M.D.  Image shows older women in pink sweater and white shirt picking flowers.

Christiane Northrup, M.D. is one of the leading authorities on menopause.  She has devoted her time to helping people (women especially) have great health.  Her book, “The Wisdom Of Menopause” is now in its 4th Edition and the knowledge it contains, just keeps on giving.  And now you can listen to it as an audiobook.

Book cover for Cracking The Menopause - While Keeping Yourself Together by Mariella Frostrup and Alice Smellie.  Red and orange rays eminating from a yellow circle against a magenta background

This book was recommended by a friend who is trying to help his wife navigate the ups and downs of menopause.  

Cracking the Menopause, written by  straight-talking broadcaster Mariella Frostrup and award-winning health journalist Alice Smellie, has all the information you need – with a generous side order of humour. Designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to manage your symptoms from perimenopause onwards, this essential book separates the myths from the reality and offers expertise, hope and advice.

Red Hot Mamas


This website is a goldmine of information about menopause.  What we like is that the content tends to be research-based.  So you’re getting more of the facts about menopause as they come to light … and less of the guesses.

Plus we love the play on words — red hot mamas … hot flashes … get it?
