Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A groundbreaking book on womens physical and emotional well-being, Womens Bodies, Womens Wisdom has become a classic, with more than 1.25 million copies in print. Here in this revised edition is the most up-to-date information available on womens health issues.

Womens Bodies, Womens Wisdom

Christiane Northrups vision of mind-body wellness has received an extraordinary response from women all over the world. Womens Bodies, Womens Wisdom powerfully demonstrates that when women change the basic conditions of their lives that lead to health problems, they heal faster, more completely, and with far fewer medical interventions.

Dr. Northrup brings us vital information about the best techniques of Western medicine and the best alternative therapies, showing how to incorporate both into a complementary whole. She guides readers through the entire range of womens health problems and offers innovative, positive perspectives on normal processes, such as menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. This edition includes:

• A nutrition chapter emphasizing individual dietary needs and body chemistry

• Information on improving fertility after age 35--and how to cut the risk of C-section by 50 percent

• A comprehensive program for menopause, including how to decide whether natural hormone replacement is right for you

• Holistic ways to prepare and heal faster if surgery is necessary

• Plus dozens of natural treatments and a wealth of hard-to-find health care resources

Filled with dramatic case histories from her medical practice in Maine, Womens Bodies, Womens Wisdom is contemporary medicine at its best, combining new technologies with natural remedies and the miraculous healing powers within the body itself.

This is a life-changing book for me and I don't use that term lightly.
I feel the need to give a copy of this book to every woman in my life. There is no-one I can think of (man or woman) who would not benefit from reading it.
It's easy to read, citing hundreds of medical studies as well as the anecdotal stories of real women, full of facts gleaned from Dr Northrop's years in practice as an OB/GYN and loaded with remedies and steps we can all take to improve our lives immeasurably.
