Menopause

What's a woman to do?

MILLIONS OF WOMEN , as well as the medical community, were thrown into turmoil recently when the largest study to date on hormone-replacement therapy (HRT) found that such treatment increased health risks for some women. The cover of TIME magazine posed a difficult question for the "40 percent of all women in the US" who turn to HRT in their menopausal years. In bold letters and colors the cover reads: "Hormone-replacement therapy is riskier than advertised. What's a woman to do?"

As a woman, my heart is right next to those struggling with both the symptoms and treatment of menopause. Yet I know that the answer to the question "What's a woman to do?" doesn't have to be a risky one. It can be a spiritual one.
