DVD Review: Menopause in an Hour

by Holly Osterman

You think you know everything there is to know about menopause, right? You’ve talked to your mother, your best friend and, hopefully, your doctor. Or you’ve been searching the internet and now you’re an expert.

So why do you still feel so confused? Probably because you’re overloaded.

What you need is Menopause in an Hour, a newly released 2-DVD set and 48-page guide. Sounds like more than an hour, but the second DVD is for the men in your lives. Yes, the men. And the title says it all: “What’s Up with You-Know-Who?”

What can you expect from watching Menopause in an Hour? Dr. Tara Allmen has a clear and concise approach to tackling a very difficult topic for many women. She explains what menopause is all about and describes some of the more common symptoms. Her “six prescriptions for living a healthy lifestyle “give women a good start into figuring out what is going on with their bodies, both physically and mentally.

The most important thing about menopause is not to ignore it until the symptoms are unbearable. You need to be willing to tackle it head on. Have a plan. Know what you should be eating, how often you should exercise, and why you need to make yourself a priority. Life can be very demanding, but—if you aren’t at your best—any little thing can often make the situation worse. And the first DVD can help you make sense of it all.

Then there’s the men. If you’re confused, imagine how your husband might feel. Ask him how his favorite team is doing or the best way to grill a steak and he’ll talk for hours. But ask what a hot flash is and he’ll run from the room. Dr. Allmen gives the men their own prescription for a healthy lifestyle which they’ll find very useful. A strong healthy relationship takes two. Sometimes you’re the one holding everything together and sometimes they are. This could be the point where your man needs to offer you some support, at times a little space and, most of all, an open and understanding mind.

The last part of this DVD also includes the personal stories of women who have gone through menopause and their experiences. Too often, we feel as if we’re alone in this. Nobody understands. You’re the only one. But you’re not. Women are beginning to go through this stage every single day and they have questions and insights that are invaluable.

Now that you know about Menopause in an Hour, get your copy, fire up the DVD player and encourage your partner to join you for an hour of enlightenment and understanding. You won’t be disappointed. And the 48-page guide will help you track your symptoms, make better decisions, and utilize the resources available to you.

We interviewed Dr. Tara Allmen after reviewing the DVD. We really liked the information on her DVD. It is good for anyone in menopause, approaching menopause, and for the people in the family of the menopausal woman. Very helpful, informative and we recommend it.
