Synopses & Reviews
The only popular holistic medical guide for women, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom is the long-awaited, much-needed, unique, practical and philosophical approach to healing that empowers women to take control of their physical and emotional health. As radically feminist as Our Bodies, Ourselves was in its day, Dr. Northrup's guide cites dramatic and affecting cases of women healing from long-term illnesses through alternative medical methods, and gives groundbreaking mind-body guidance. This revolutionary book combines curing with caring, knowledge with intuition, and demonstrates that physical healing is inseparable from spiritual healing. It authoritatively and compassionately guides readers through an A to Z list of women's conditions from fibroids, menstruation, and vaginitis to cancer, hysterectomy, and menopause.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 690-736) and index.
