Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book by an Australian midwife/naturopath on menstrual problems and their treatment proves to be a winner by offering the best of Western medicine combined with natural therapies. This very balanced work includes detailed explanations of how hormones function and what causes things to go wrong. Trickey discusses nutrition, herbs, drugs, and surgery as possible solutions to such gynecological problems as premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts while explaining the historical use of treatments. Those working with adolescents will find value in the chapter on menarche, and older women will find insight in Trickey's discussion of chemical, surgical, and natural treatments for menopausal symptoms. Technical yet understandable, the book is very clear on what can and cannot be treated with natural therapies. Be aware that the spellings, statistics, and measurements are Australian. Recommended for public and academic libraries.?Elizabeth A. Williams, Houston Acad. of Medicine-Texas Medical Ctr. Lib.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book which clearly and concisely explains the myriad of conditions which can affect a woman from menarche through to menopause. I am a naturopath and medical herbalist and I have found this book invaluable. It is the first of its kind to cover the medical and alternative solutions to common gynaecological complaints. While it provides self-help information for the reader, I was impressed that it always advocates proper medical and professional advice and check-ups. A real gem.

Ruth Trickey has written a comprehensive, clear and interesting book which will undoubtedly help any woman with a reproductive system-related problem and will help all women to know that part of themselves better.

This is one of the most highly respected references in our library on the subject of women's health, particularly amongst students and practitioners in our herbal medicine department.
You should know however that a 2011 edition is now available (for $160 Australian dollars) that has several new sections and many enhancements of older sections.
The older editions are still viable and acurate.
