1. You say there are three fairly distinct phases of menopause: the premenopausal years, the menopausal climax years, and the postmenopausal years. Can you talk more about the three phases, what characterizes them, and how they differ?

2. The medical community is wary of herbal medicine, particularly because it is a largely unregulated industry with few assurances of safety for consumers. How safe are herbs?
