Format: Paperback
This is an excellent basic primer on the causes of heavy menstrual bleeding and advice for dealing with it. Heavy bleeding can result in anemia, a condition also covered quite adequately. This information is presented in a workbook style, where the reader is first given some education on the subject, then guided to recognize and evaluate her own symptoms using worksheets. What follows is a wealth of advice concerning nutrition, diet, exercise, alternative therapies, drug therapy, and surgical intervention. Since the book covers all heavy menstrual bleeding, no one cause is examined in depth - for specific causes such as fibroid tumors or endometriosis, other sources of information would probably be needed. This book's great strength is its advice on diet, including sample menus and recipes, and its 18 pages of suggested exercise - a simple stretching routine, including several yoga positions. If mild anemia due to excessive menstrual bleeding is your problem, this book is an excellent starting place to inform yourself about what's going on with your body and what you can do to help yourself.

I found this book very helpful. As a nurse I often see that most people with health issues want a quick fix or a pill to fix everything & spend very little time attempting to get to the cause of a problem. This book is written in a way that anyone can understand.
