Editorial Reviews

Review


"For practitioner seeking a basic introduction to integrative medicine as it relates to women, this is a good starting guide. The book covers lifestyle contributors to health and wellness (nutrition, dietary supplements, physical activity, mind-body therapies), world systems and philosophies related to disease (traditional Chinese medicine, energy medicine, homeopathy), reproductive health (premenstrual syndrome, the role of stress in infertility,
chronic pelvic pain, menopause), and common illnesses in women (urinary tract infections, headaches, anxiety, eating disorders, osteoporosis). Concise sectioning of information in the chapters and good tables are the highlight of this book. There is much innovative information as it relates to the mind-body connection in health."--Doody's


"Integrative Women's Health resonates with warmth, care, and empathy, from the foreword by series editor Andrew Weil, MD, to the editors' introductory chapter and epilogue, and throughout the contributing authors' chapters...Written by women, primarily for women, this book provides a powerful and practical set of guidelines for an integrative, celebratory, whole person approach to women's health." --HerbalGram

You could not ask for a more intelligent and caring guide to what is available in health care for women. This book looks in a thoughtful way at the state of the art in healing and keeping our mind, body and spirit healthy. Bringing Western medicine together with complementary approaches that have good evidence for being effective. Looking at the major health issues we are concerned about, this amazing group of authors present this material in a clear, straight forward way. I think it is a very useful tool in making informed decisions as we look at the explosion of treatments,information and products that are available.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By B. Naparstek on April 30, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The book is a collection of cutting edge, practical articles. There are excellent overviews on philosophy and varous systemic approaches (homeopathy, energy medicine, Chinese medicine, etc), as well as ways to address specific conditions (everything from endometriosis to fibroids; infertility to perinatal depression; breast cancer to chronic pelvic pain; urinary tract infections to headache and PMS; fibromyalgia to osteoporosis....I kid you not, Maizes and Low Dog cover the territory in a true integration of allopathic and holistic methodology. The information is wise, grounded, sophisticated and pulls from the latest research. It's comprehensive but accessible (and that's how we know it was well-edited). In other words, this is a must text for the library of anyone who's serious about women's health.

There's a lot of good information in the book about balancing your life, some good tips on diet, use of supplements and importance of exercise. Several good authors included. Overall a good resource. There is quite a bit of repitition from one chapter to the next so it could be condensed.

Format: Hardcover
This well-edited collection does an excellent job of outlining and discussing the breath of topics that comprise the field of integrative women's health. The thoughtful integration of allopathic and "alternative" approaches makes this an exceptional reference/textbook, a `must have' reference for practitioners' libraries. Many chapters include excellent citation of current research evidence. Chapters about specific conditions will also provide a grounded study tool for individual patients and support groups to guide their thinking as they consider their own health care decisions. The comprehensive scope and direct accessibility of the information included in the text makes this an extremely useful resource to practitioners and 'informed public' in the consideration of both health and illness.
