There are 40 million American women who are 50 or older and 20 million more who will reach menopause within the next decade. Many women dread getting older and worry about unbearable hot flashes, sleep deprivation, and the end of their sex life.

Dr. Northrup has good news. "The second half of your life is designed to provide you with more pleasure, prosperity, and fulfillment than you have ever dreamed possible."

In this upbeat and eye-opening interview, Dr. Northrup will reveal the latest research on topics such as hormone replacement and tell you how to have the best sex of your life. Most importantly, she will provide a blueprint for making sure that your menopausal years are the happiest and most vibrantly healthy years of your life.

The period of time around menopause (the final menstrual period) is a biologically -supported turning point that heralds the springtime of the second half of life. It's designed to stimulate healing of the unfinished business from the first half of a woman's life, according to Dr. Northrup.

1. Watch Your Diet
2. Take a Good Nutritional
Supplement Every Day
3. Drink Enough Water
4. Exercise Regularly
5. Get Plenty of Sleep
6. Get Regular Exposure to Sunlight
7. Breathe Fully through Your Nose
