Ah, the change of life: a youthful appearance, abundant energy, sensational sex and a zest for living. Don’t go reaching for your reading glasses; your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Christiane Northrup insists women needn’t give up on pleasure after menopause, though that’s precisely what many women do once they’ve gone through the change. Happiness and a satisfying sex life are not only achievable, but they are within easy reach. The key, she explains, is increasing your nitric oxide, a gas our bodies naturally produce that causes the smooth muscles in our blood vessels to relax. Northrup provides tips for doing that through exercise, diet, positive thinking, relaxation, stress reduction, supplementation and quitting bad habits. Her fresh perspective on midlife is not only inspiring, it provides the tools that will help you cope with menopause and create an exuberant second half of life.
