More About the Author
After struggling with a surgically induced uterine prolapse for almost ten years, Christine Ann Kent determined to treat her condition without resorting to hysterectomy. Years of intensive research in the medical literature and extensive experimentation with her own condition resulted in the first edition of her groundbreaking book, Saving the Whole Woman. Completely rewritten in 2007, the 2nd edition remains the definitive book on the subject of natural alternatives to surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence.
Her latest book Save Your Hips - Heal Hip Pain Naturally and Avoid Dangerous Orthopedic Surgery was published in 2013. It is the first comprehensive exposé of the hip surgery industry. Hundreds of thousands of highly complex and dangerous surgeries are being performed every year, the vast majority on women, not just on the elderly, but on teenagers and young athletes in their 20s and 30s.
These surgeries often fail and wind up requiring total hip replacement more than twenty-five percent of the time, according to studies. This means the young patient will be confined to a wheel chair in by age 40 or 50. The companion DVD provides a comprehensive series of exercises and stretches that can effectively reduce and eliminate hip pain and restore mobility.
She founded her company, Whole Woman Inc. in 2003 to publish the results of her research and work with women. At the Whole Woman Center in Albuquerque, NM USA, Christine works with women one-on-one and in small groups to learn the Whole Woman Posture, the natural female alignment of the lumbar spine that supports the proper placement of pelvic organs and hip alignment for a lifetime without surgery.
Christine holds bachelors degrees in both Nursing (BSN) from the University of New Mexico and Anthropology (BS) from Northern Arizona University. She lives in Albuquerque New Mexico, where she continues to research, write on her blog and forum and produce videos on women's health.
