Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Yoshida, a gastroenterologist, points out that "a decade ago women weren't included in clinical trials." It was assumed that diseases in women were the same as in men and that their reactions to medications would be the same. Once in private practice, Yoshida recognized the fallacies of those assumptions and established a Women's GI Clinic. The first portion of this extensive book explains women's GI problems and the role of sex hormones in digestive health, discusses current medical remedies and offers a slew of treatments readers can implement for problems associated with PMS, pregnancy and menopause. Linking America's obesity epidemic to the GI tract, Yoshida lays out sensible diets that will improve digestion and assist in weight loss. The book's second part matter-of-factly presents strategies to combat the various ills that can afflict women daily, from heartburn and constipation to irritable bowel syndrome and gas. And all readers, regardless of gender, will learn something from the information provided in the book's third section, on dealing with doctors. Yoshida offers detailed planning suggestions so that readers may obtain maximum benefit from a doctor visit, including questions to ask and information to provide. A "Know your belly pain" chart and diagram provides instructions on how to explain symptoms to health care providers. For Yoshida, "celebrating yourself as a woman is a vital part of staying healthy," and in this astonishingly comprehensive and well-written work, she offers many ways to do that.

"Yoshida offers detailed planning suggestions so that readers may obtain maximum benefit from a doctor visit, including questions to ask and information to provide.... For Yoshida, “celebrating yourself as a woman is a vital part of staying healthy,” and in this astonishingly comprehensive and well-written work, she offers many ways to do that."

She goes into detail which is very helpful.

Yoshida looks great on the cover and if she is the result of her endorsement for a well-balanced lifestyle...then more power to her and the words she shares with us.
Tara
Obviously, the author does not have a weight problem and never has had one.

I purchased this book because it stated it was written by a leading GI Doctor especially for women. It promises to answer all questions and give real solutions to stop pain and achieve lasting digestive health. Well, I have read the entire book and found it to be mostly repetitive, somewhat condescending, lacks some current medical prescriptions, and does not include natural holistic medicines and techniques. Her solution to everything seems to be weight-loss. This book is okey. But, I had expected better. Instead of this book, I would recommend the following books: Balanced Healing By Dr Larry Altshuler, & The Chronic Pain Solution By Dr James Dillard. These two books are very informative and helpful.

This book is what every woman should know about their insides. A "must-have" to refer to at every stage of a woman's life. Yoshida explained complicated biological processes into easy to understand terms and helped me to get to know my body in a whole new level.

If you are a middle age woman who has been seeking answers and looking at various solutions for awhile, you may find this book a waste of time as well as money. Along with the author's condescending style (she only has a little tummy pooch so she's learned how accept a bit of imperfection---why can't everyone else??) based on her own lack of problems (especially, but not exclusively, weight issues), the best information she can offer is how to go about looking for the right doctor who will help you. Not much self-help advice which is what I was seeking. Do you need to buy a book to tell you to go see a good doctor? I broke with tradition and thought there might be help from someone who's research was not based on their own experience---I'm disappointed here.

This book was very helpful, especially in matters of special diets in the sense of which foods to eat as well as which to avoid. My doctor was pretty good on which to avoid, but not so helpful when it came to an all around, everyday diet. The book was better. Secondly, the book helped me to better understand my problem...Boy, do I miss chocolate.

I absolutely loved this book! I've been looking for information to help me to understand many of the digestive problems that I've experienced. Women ARE different than men...especially on the insides. This book clearly explains some of the causes and brings forth solutions to help you avoid some of the not so comfortable problems. This not only helped me to understand the inner me and what's potentially going on in there, but also helped me to be more prepared for my next doctor's visit. I like Dr. Yoshida's whole approach to patient care and especially for her genuine focus on women and their well-being.

Dr. Yoshida has taken a complicated subject, and rendered it into terms the average lay person can understand. Her no-nonsense solutions make sense and can be applied by everyone, male and female. The book is an outstanding contribution to the field of gastroenterology. I look forward to more books by this expert.

I liked this book for all of the great information in it about digestive problems and explanations. The descriptions and writing style are helpful and easy to understand.
My main problem with this book is the amount of time spent preaching about weight issues in women. Obviously, the author does not have a weight problem and never has had one. She cannot relate effectively to people that do and those sections on weight come across as condescending at best. If you need those sections and want her unsolicited advice, then read those chapters. I skipped them and the book was much more enjoyable and effective.

I picked up this book because of Yoshida's qualifications, research and dedication to women's health issues. No book can replace a visit to your doctor, but this book helped me to understand my some of my tummy problems a little more. Yoshida looks great on the cover and if she is the result of her endorsement for a well-balanced lifestyle...then more power to her and the words she shares with us. I hope she continues her research and continues to write and share her findings with us.
