Review

Natural Choices for Woman’s Health is a treasure trove of practical information that is guaranteed to improve or maintain your health and may even save your life. I highly recommend this book.” —Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

“I wish this wonderful book had been available when I was on my search for better health and vitality three decades ago. Dr. Steelsmith’s inspirational personal story is a powerful foundation for her wise guidance.

Natural Choices for Women’s Health offers an enlightening and clear direction for the navigation toward health by women of all ages. It offers a very practical and rational approach to the many health challenges women face.” —Dr. Michael T. Murray, N.D., coauthor of Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine and How to Prevent and Treat Cancer with Natural Medicine

Format: Paperback
OK, I must confess, at first I was a bit skeptical when I read the endorsements for this book. Especially the quote on the cover by Dr. Christian Northrup. I wondered if her comments might be over the top, and if the book could live up to such high praise. But I was not disappointed. What she says is true: this book is not only guaranteed to improve your health, it can literally save your life!! This is because what the book has to offer can prevent all kinds of health problems that ultimately can kill you. In step by step detail it shows you exactly how to put your life on a completely different course.

I'm a long time fan of health books, I've read many, and this is the best written overall guide I've found yet. It is just what I've been looking for. At last, a book about health that really speaks to me, and opens up the discussion about health to a larger view. It's written in an accessible and reader friendly style. The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it is only 400 pages. I wanted more!!! OK, maybe not everyone is going to save their life by reading it, but every reader is bound to discover plenty to like in this book, and improve their health, and change their life for the better.

Format: Paperback
A wonderful book. I love the Chinese medicine here. It is organized in a way that allows you to look at one area of your body at a time. I really like this approach because I will return to it as I improve my health and take care of each part of my health , little by little. I like the first chapter the best so far. I think it really inspired me to make a lot of changes, look at the way I am doing a lot of things in my life that I could do differently. The nice thing about this book is that if you can't remember all the advice you can look it up when you need it. The things I will look up later as I need them are the parts about "what to do for a common cold", "how to treata flu ", et cetera. It has many lists of all the amounts of vitamins and herbs that you need to take, for many conditions. Tons of good infornation. The book is the newest addition to my "essential home library".

Format: Paperback
I highly (I repeat, HIGHLY) recommend this book! It's full of valuable information you'll need again and again. You can use it as a resource to look up your symptoms or remedies, but it's much more than that. Within minutes of picking it up, it started changing the way I think about my health and how I make choices about health. Because of this book, I've already cured a condition I've had for years!

The first chapter is a powerful lead-in to the rest of the book. It gives you a GREAT overall plan for a total health makeover. Many of us think we're already pretty nutrition savvy, but everyone will find something new here.

One of the coolest things about this book: it's arranged in a series of fresh, fascinating chapters that walk you through every major area of your body. So you can choose what area you need to work on or have problems with, and it tells you how to do a total makeover of that area. While the book is geared toward women, except for a few chapters it's equally applicable to men.

Another very cool thing about this book - it weaves together two kinds of alternative medicine, natural medicine from a Western view and Chinese medicine. The book's most important point may be that if you use both approaches at the same time, (and the book tells you how to do this) you'll be even healthier than if you used just one or the other alone. The book gives you many pearls of wisdom, secrets, and health tips from both of these perspectives that you've never heard before.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book recently on CNN and heard the author talking about it. I bought the book and must say I was not disappointed. This is just a fantastic book. It really delves into areas of natural health that other books on the topic just don't cover. For instance the area of breast health for women or the part about the health of the pelvis. There's just nothing out there that does such a fantastic job covering women's health as this book does. I am getting a tremendous amount out of this book. I give it an A plus, ten stars.

I have enjoyed reading many health books over the years and this one really caught my eye. I loved the uniqueness of how chinese medicine and natural medicine were brought together in this book. I have never seen that done before. It's a very understandable and comprehensive journey through women's health issues. I have enjoyed it very much and have recommended it to many friends and family. What a great assest this book is to my health library!!

I received this book from my parents in October and it has already changed my life! It is not only easy to read, concise, and full of helpful information, but it is inspiring as well. It has motivated and inspired me to eat more healthy, chose natural remedies and continue to exercise. The book makes a wonderful gift for any woman, young or old.I highly recommend it!!!
