Women Ripening Through The Menopause is a thought provoking and empowering book full of information for women and those who love and care for them. Melissa says, “Our self-image is a major factor indetermining our internal health, but before we can feel good about ourselves, we need to unlearn the falsehoods of our culture.” Melissa demonstrates the importance of strong and powerful older women in our culture, using myth, archeological evidence, poetry and remedy pictures. She reveals how HRT, as a strategy for treating women, is a continuum from the past. Melissa shares her personal perceptions, learned crone wisdom, and insights as an experienced women’s homeopathic practitioner. Among the remedy pictures are Sepia, Cimicifuga, Folliculinum, Lachesis, Arsenicum, Helonius, and Senecio.

Melissa’s interests in homeopathy reflect her passion for a better world. She feels that without strong women there will be no future.
