What is "Speaking of Menopause"?

    An interactive educational program For Women in Their Second Forty Years...and Beyond
  • A Two-Hour DVD
  • An 80-page Workbook
  • Plus: Breast Self-Exam Instruction Card

Karen Lee's program is a comprehensive resource for making the second 40 years the best years of your life. It addresses the physical and emotional changes that occur and what you can do about them. The two-hour DVD offers reliable medical information and focuses on understanding your body's changes. The 80-page workbook is a systematic inventory of your health and a guide for planning the best years of your life. It is a vital tool you can use to communicate more effectively with your healthcare provider-especially about sensitive issues, such as sexuality, hormone therapy, breast cancer.


Each year three-quarters of a million post-menopausal American women die prematurely from diseases that are largely preventable - heart attack, strokes and cancers. Lack of information prevents many women in their second forty years from getting the healthcare they need.

"Your health is your business" says Karen Lee who has launched her own attempt to provide women the information they need to prevent these crippling or fatal illnesses and to challenge them to take charge of their health.

This two hour DVD AND 80 PAGE WORKBOOK comprehensively address the impacts of menopause, heredity and the aging process on a woman's body, which include increased risks for heart disease, breast cancer and osteoporosis. Viewers can learn from the DVD and workbook in the privacy of their home about sensitive subjects such as sexuality, incontinence, bowel problems, hormones and more. Suggestions on discussing these issues with family and healthcare providers is an integral part of the program.

Each year nearly 500,000 women die of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death among women over 50. Breast cancer claims 44,000 women every year. But 95 percent of breast cancers are curable if detected early! Newer research is focusing on prevention of this feared disease.

Strong Demand For Basic Information

The DVD/WORKBOOK helps women identify their hereditary and current risks for disease and helps them design a personal program for prevention that includes lifestyle changes and regular medical exams. Research shows that this type of straightforward, mainstream information meets a desperate need.
