Publisher Comments:

A groundbreaking book on women's physical and emotional well-being, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom has become a classic, with more than 270,000 copies in print in the four years since its initial publication. Now it has been completely revised, offering the most up-to-date information available on women's health issues.

Christiane Northrup's vision of mind-body wellness has received an extraordinary response from women all over the world. Women's Bodies, Women's 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.

Now Dr. Northrup brings us vital new 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 women's health problems, and offers strikingly new, positive perspectives on normal processes, such as menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. This edition includes:

• An all-new nutrition chapter emphasizing individual dietary needs and body chemistry

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

• A completely updated 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 new natural treatments and a wealth of hard-to-find health care resources

Filled with dramatic case histories from the famed Women to Women health care center, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom is contemporary medicine at its best, combining new technologies with natural remedies and the miraculous healing powers within the body itself.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 835-889) and index.

Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom came to me at the right time in my life. I thought I was pregnant and wanted a baby but while reading this book, I realized I needed to be healed, learn to love my body and become the person that I want to be before I decide to bring another person into this world. I know that pregnacy is very important and we must be ready physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even professionally, and this book confirms it and puts the icing on the cake. It's amazing and I want to tell every woman about it!. I feel so blessed to have come across this book and right now my focus is on accomplishing all of my goals and dreams and being the woman, wife and mother I need to be. I am proud to say that I will be more than ready to bring another person into this world, thanks to God and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom!

This book is amazing and has helped me understand my body on levels I never knew existed! When I nearly lost my second pregnancy and they found a large ovarian cyst on the ultrasound I intuitively felt that it was realted to the marital problems I was going through and when I found this book and read about the energetic cause of ovarian cysts, it blew my mind! It was so accurate! My creative outlets were being blocked off because of my husbands insecurity! He felt threatened by me putting my attention toward anything other than being a wife and mother..... By understanding why my body had created this cyst, and what it was trying to tell me about my need to nurture myself, I was able to begin dissolving a 10 cm cyst without any drugs, surgery, or even herbs!!!
