As women grapple with the issue of whether hormone replacement therapy is necessary for them, they need a greater understanding of what the body is undergoing in menopause. Dr. Ifeoma Ikenze, an M.D. and a homeopath, writes from her experience of treating women daily in her Northern California practice. She explains the changes that begin to occur in the female body after thirty-five, and how homeopathy can help.
Using patient cases as examples, Dr. Ikenze shows how physical, emotional, professional, and spiritual problems can challenge one's health and self-image. She incorporates the latest medical reserach and addresses the spiritual and emotional challenges of menopause, which most physicians overlook.
Nigerian-born Ifeoma Ikenze, M.D., earned her medical degree at Albert Einstein Medical School in New York and homeopathic certification at the British Institure of Homepathy in Canada. She directs the Elizabeth Center in San Anselmo, California.
