Format: Paperback
This is an exceptionally well-researched and well-written book covering the most common medical problems for women, how to prevent them and how to treat them the natural way. I am particularly impressed with the author's broad knowledge of biochemistry, medical conditions and her reliance on hard data from published studies. If you're tired of the side-effects of chemical drugs you'll find plenty of sound advice and alternative therapies backed up by scrupulous research. This is a great stand-alone volume on the subject but it also complements other books on women's medical conditions written from traditional medical viewpoints.

After years of experiencing excruciating periods, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I have been searching for months to find natural alternatives to hormone therapy and another laparascopy. I found it in this book. It contains more information on endometriosis than any other resource I have looked through. It also provides thorough dietary suggestions and nutritional supplements. It offers an alternative to the more extreme therapies.
While I was looking to this book for a specific condition, it also contains a wealth of information on the various ailments that women suffer from, as well as suggestions for women's overall health.
I highly reccommend it to anyone looking to feel better, naturally.

I have read several books on women's health. I was disappointed in this book after reading all these nice reviews, I had higher expectations. I have to say that "Healing Outside the Marigins: The Survivor's Guide to Integrative Cancer Care" by C. Hendricks, "Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" by M. Murray and J. Pizzorno, "God's Medicine Is Best (herbs, vitamins and minerals)" by L. Wise or "The Natural Pharmacy: Complete Home Reference to Natural Medicine" by S. Lininger; these books give more practical information than Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine and by far turned out to be more helpful.

I returned this book only because the primary context was not compatible to what I was looking for and found it to more pertinent to premenopause and the transition to postmenopause.

the topics in this book aren't pleasant ones to read about so it's not a fun book per se but it's a valuable resource. i've always been drawn to naturopathic doctors since they look at the whole person and treating the root cause of the issue, not just covering up the problem or treating the symptoms. this book is written from that perspective. for me and what i was interested in, this book provided good information including and explanation in easy to understand terms and in the manner that the doctor may convey the issue to you. also, there's clear guidance on how to prevent and treat the condition. i plan on reading through other sections for general information purposes.

i like that this doctor didn't push certain brands of products or recommend things that were hard to find or unreasonable for the average person to do. it's very practical. also, she doesn't shun traditional medicine, meaning she explains how traditional medical procedures may come into play for various conditions. as much as we'd like to avoid them, traditional doctors do help identify and play a role in healing from some of the issues we as women face. this book just broadens your base of knowledge so you can find a solution that's good for you.

i would recommend this book as an important part of a woman's health and wellness library.

Disappointed. Not enough details of holistic medicine. Very basic info. Was looking forward to this book based on the reviews. Most of this info is online in a google search.

I came across this book while trying to find alternative remedies for my sister's recurrent UTIs.
It is very well written with clear instructions regarding the dosage plan for each topic.
I'm glad to say that my sister didn't take antibiotics after all.
Loads of helpful info nicely presented. Even my mom is convinced to try the menopause plan for her! (And she has refused to do so since the beginning).
Thank you Mrs Hudson for an excellent book for women who want to give the naturopathic approach a try.
