Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom is a groundbreaking and inspiring healthcare guide for women of all ages. Dr Christine Northrup, a holistic physician trained in obstetrics and gynaecology, explains the workings of the female body and guides you through a comprehensive list of women's conditions and concerns.
She powerfully demonstrates that when women listen to their body's own wisdom or change the basic conditions of their lives that lead to health problems, they heal faster, more completely and with far fewer medical interventions.
This important book offers important and relevant information on the entire range of women's health problems. This edition includes:
A nutrition chapter emphasising individual dietry needs and body chemistry,
Information on improving fertility after the age of 35 - and how to cut the risk of a Caesarean section by 50%,
A complete programme 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 healthcare resources.
Filled with helpful case histories, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom is contemporary medicine at its best, combining new techniques with natural remedies and the miraculous healing powers within the body itself.
