Good to know about the Natural Menopause Diet. When it comes to HRT vs. all-natural diet, it's just such a no-brainer choice. Glad to know this is a good diet. Curious if you have looked at the diet from? It's all natural, too, and has a ton of positive buzz from users. Would love to see your thoughts. Happy 2010!
