Cathy Taylor Writer, Entrepreneur

Cathy's passion for the internet, as well as her own transition into peri-menopause, was the impetus to create her first website Everything Menopause. She writes often regarding menopause and issues that concern women at mid-life including healing the mind, body and emotions. You can also find some of her health-related articles online at www.ezinearticles.com/?expert=Cathy_Taylor

Her company, Creative Communications, has just published a useful resource on menopause, written by a RN, entitled How to Conquer Menopause. This information has already helped hundreds of women cope with the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and learn how to put quality back into their lives.

Because of the online demand for mid-life information from men, an additional site was just launched called Everything Andropause. Cathy is working closely with her associate, Jed Diamond the author of the best-selling book Male Menopause, to bring men help during their mid-life transition.

Her personal interests include self-help, new age, metaphysics, yoga, exercise, ballroom dancing, singing, women's issues, business, entrepreneur, marketing, internet marketing, and health-related issues (primarily alternative). Cathy has an 18-year-old son, and she claims that being a mom is by far “the best thing I've ever done.”

With time the mucus membranes within the walls of the vagina begin to get thinner and lose elasticity. Estrogen production in the ovaries is less and may cause thinning of the vaginal lining.

Vaginal dryness is medically known as \'atrophic vaginitis,\' and it sounds like a disease, though it is not. It can be overcome with simple remedies, such as, a good nutritional prog…
