First!!! Please make sure you are looking at the new 2010 edition with the White cover and standing photo of Dr. Northrup. Amazon is posting all the reviews to ALL the editions! You can reach the other book by clicking on the above link that says which version this review refers too.

This is a brand new, newly researched and very updated version of an important book. I'm sorry that Amazon didn't list the updates from the back of the book first on the main product page. Here they are:

* new material on sexuality--and how to have a more fulfilling sex life
* the spiritual and scientific principles behind healing from terminal illnesses, and how you can utilize these principles for your own health and the health of others
* vital information about how to truly dissolve PMS and ease menstrual cramps
* extraordinary facts on Vitamin D--and why it is crucial for breast, cardiovascular, and immune system health
* the importance of the preconception diet and how to greatly decrease your risk of birth defects
* how to birth naturally, despite the current induction and C-section epidemic
* all you need to know about thyroid function, including proper blood tests
* life-saving facts about cellular inflammation--the root cause of all chronic degenerative diseases--and how to prevent this condition
* the essentials on the "fountain of youth molecule"--and how to enhance your levels of it for vibrant health

It is also important to look at the dates on the reviews when considering them. Many of them are 10 or more years old. Not only has the over 900 pages of information been significantly updated, but attitudes towards its content have changed dramatically since it was first published.

Format: Paperback
I don't have the revised version, so I can't speak on that. But the original book changed me profoundly. I came from a typical American, Western-civilization, patriarchal belief system & lifestyle. That was the type of church I was involved in, it was the type of family I came from & thus it was how my mind had been trained to work. And work I did, never understanding why trying to achieve the American Dream was so hollow & exhausting at the end of the day. I first read this when I was eighteen, and used it for a couple of years afterwards to work through some very painful memories & experiences. Although it was not a cure-all, doing the exercises in the book really helped me to start uncovering who I was underneath my social environment & upbringing.

Dr. Northrup brings to the table historical information, dozens of case studies from her own & other doctors' work & perhaps most valuable of all, her own experiences. I greatly appreciate her being willing to share her own struggles with her readers. I found what she was saying echoing through me as FINALLY, another person understanding why I was never content with my traditional, extremely male-dominated religion. Although I didn't fully recognize it or even be able to name it for years to come, I started to understand why I had lived virtually my whole life with an immense sense of cognitive dissonance. Partially because of this book, I started reading a lot more, challenging so-called authority more often, started doing yoga & studied a more Eastern philosophy, diet & lifestyle. It was one of the most transformative periods of my life, a time of a lot of emotional purging through tons of writing, tons of thinking & tons of tears. I am grateful I had the time & space to do this at such a young age, a chance many people never get.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I thought it would be a good medical guide through troubling PMS and my entry into Perimenopause. I have found little in the way of helpful medical knowledge. What I did find and wasn't expecting was having my PMS symptoms attributed to my own repressed emotional issues. The book is incredibly long and packed with so much new age drivel that it is impossible to tell if there is anything helpful within. I don't really want it on my bookshelf and will probably donate it.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By L. Erickson on August 8, 2010
Format: Paperback
Quite simply, I think every women should own this book, to use as a lifelong reference, turning to it whenever a particular health problem arises. Dr. Northrup was the first to integrate conventional medicine, mental health themes, energy medicine, and alternative health methods, and apply this combination to a full view of women's mind-body health. She begins the book by reviewing the phases of a woman's life, women's energy body mappings from various alternative teachings, and many mental health themes. She then provides a reference to virtually every female-based health issue that can arise, including both personal stories and the stories of her patients to enforce certain themes.

As to the risk outlined by some other reviewers, that the mind-body angle sometimes veers into 'blaming the victim', I felt the book steered clear of that. Dr. Northrup never suggests not treating physical symptoms, or denying conventional medical care. She offers her insights into the possible mental or energy components of various health issues as an additional, supplementary angle to explore. And she makes it clear that this kind of inner work is something we all can benefit from engaging in, and that some physical issues just cannot ever be fully understood.

Overall, I think the benefits of this book for most women far outweigh the issues. It is a comprehensive attempt to create a women's mind-body health reference, and one that most women will find themselves nodding along with at times, particularly when reading the personal stories provided. Although anecdotes may not be 'science' (as some reviewers have pointed out), they can often be healing, when we recognize ourselves in them.
