Postmenopausal women have unique healthcare needs that are often not addressed by conventional medicine.
This group of women, starting around age 50 and extending through the rest of a woman’s life – strive to live a vital and productive lives. As aging women we need to engage in self advocacy to reach optimal health. Through the lens of Integrative medicine the new book Beyond Menopause: Pathways
to Holistic Healing introduces women to a wide array of holistic health systems and healing options.
Welcome, I'm Carolyn.
Since my retirement from clinical practice at The University of Minnesota Women's Health Clinic, I have been writing a book for postmenopausal women and consulting on women's health issues. My inspiration comes directly from the many women I’ve seen and listened to throughout 30 years of clinical practice. Women have encouraged me to share their stories from a holistic perspective, one that touches on all aspects of well-being.
Now, in the early phase of retirement from clinical practice, I am quieting my mind to recall their voices and listen to my inner voice, and to intertwine their stories and mine into a narrative that speaks to the heart of women.

"As it turns out, menopause has the potential to be a gateway into an exciting and fulfilling phase of life…but only if we pay attention to the very things outlined in this wonderful book—the health of our minds, bodies, and spirits. We are not designed to disintegrate after the age of 50. We are meant to flourish. Beyond Menopause lays out the blueprint."
