I was recently diagnosed with HPV, a disease I had never even heard of before! I had so many questions that my doctors would not answer, and I was so scared... Then I found out about this book and found all the answers to my questions. It explains in a simple fashion what are usually complicated medical issues. I learned not only about HPV, but also what a virus is and how it can be linked with cancer... and how to better take care of myself and loved ones as it informs on how this epidemic affects nol only WOMEN, but MEN and CHILDREN as well. It offers medical and holistic approaches to the diseases and it gives you hope. I wish I had known about HPV before... it certainly is not a very discussed disease in schools nor the media, and this really saddens me now that I know how common it is. I am recommending this book to all the people I care about... and, since life is such a circle, I am recommending it to YOU! Good luck and good healing to you all. And THANK YOU Dr. Henderson... for caring so much!

Dr. Henderson opened up my eyes to a major health problem in this country today--the HPV virus. I learned what it is, how it can be prevented, and how it can be treated. I was especially appreciative of Dr. Warshowsky's tips about holistic approaches, as I prefer to avoid medications and such whenever possible. I have three daughters in their teens and I have sat them down and talked to them about the virus. I asked them to read this book. The book, by the way, is very easy to read and they should have no problem understanding it. But I never felt "talked down to" by the authors either. I think every woman and teenager should read this!

When I was diagosed with the HPV virus a few weeks ago, I was baffled. What was this strange disease? Then my doctor said there was a possibility that this disease could lead to cervical cancer. I never knew a virus could be connected with cancer, and I got really scared. WOMEN AT RISK cleared up my confusion and also reassured me. Having this virus does NOT mean I'm going to get cancer! Especially if I follow the authors' good, solid advice, which is what I'm doing. From now on, I'm going to get Pap smears regularly! (I had let my checkups lapse, due to my busy schedule.) Also, I'm using the recommendations in the terrific chapter on holistic approaches, like herbs and nutritional supplements. Maybe most importantly, the book helped me look at this illness as a "wake-up call" for me to make lifestyle changes in my diet and stress levels. That's particularly emphasized in the holistic chapter. I wish I lived near New York, so Dr. Warshowsky could be my gynecologist. His ability to combine conventional Western medicine with mind-body and herbal wisdom is great. The world needs more like him. He and Dr. Henderson are true healers.

I just finished writing an email to all the women I know urging them to read this book. Specifically written for the layman rather than the medical professional, this book has a great deal of useful information and advice, and is very easy to read. In addition to discussing traditional medical approaches, there's an entire chapter on holistic treatments. Every woman should read this book!

Since the publication of this book, a spate of new books have come out discussing the HPV virus. It's great that this little-known condition has finally received some publicity! However, I would have to say that I still think this is the most reader-friendly and focused book around. I highly recommend it, and I give it to all my clients and patients who come in with the HPV virus. I hope that Henderson, Yasgur and co. publish more books on other medical topics.
