Dr. 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 this groundbreaking book has been completely revised, offering the most up-to-date information available on the entire range of women's health problems. This edition includes: an all-new nutrition chapter emphasizing individual dietary needs and body chemistry; new information on improving fertility after age 35 -- and 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. - Back cover.
