A women’s guide to using energy medicine to promote and maintain optimal physical and mental well-being.

For more than three decades, Donna Eden has been teaching people to understand the body as an energy system, to recognize their aches and pains as signals of energy imbalance, and to reclaim their natural healing capabilities. In this long-awaited new book, Eden speaks directly to women, showing them how they can work with energy to tackle the specific health challenges they face.

Hormonal health is essential to a woman’s well-being, and in this groundbreaking book Eden reveals that a woman can manage her hormones by managing her energies. In fact, energy medicine is effective in treating a host of health issues. From PMS to menopause, from high blood pressure to depression, it offers solutions to women’s health issues that traditional medicine often fails to provide. In Energy Medicine for Women, Eden shows women how they can work with energy to strengthen their immune, circulatory, lymphatic, and respiratory systems to promote health, vitality, and inner peace. Blending a compassionate voice with a profound grasp of how the female body functions as an energy system, Eden presents what is sure to become a classic book on the subject of women’s health.

Publishers Weekly

Eden (Energy Medicine) conducts workshops and lectures on the ancient practice of healing the body via its own energy systems. The first two chapters of her latest book serve as a primer, introducing nine basic energy systems, including the chakras, the meridians and the aura. Eden explains how keeping these energy systems balanced and flowing can help prevent illness, promote well-being and aid the body in self-healing. She also notes that while energy healing has been labeled an alternative method, its influence and importance has been increasingly recognized by research scientists and mainstream physicians. Eden then delves into a fascinating chapter-by-chapter discussion of health issues of interest to women, ranging from hormones, menstruation, sexuality, pregnancy and fertility to menopause and weight management, with accompanying energy "exercises" related to each topic. Included are tips to relieve PMS symptoms and hot flashes, techniques that get sexual energy flowing and a variety of movements designed to maintain overall energy balance. Proponents of energy work will no doubt welcome Eden's new book, and open-minded readers unfamiliar with the concept of energy medicine may be lured by methods that are noninvasive, free of charge and freely available at one's own fingertips.

Energy medicine is an ancient concept based on the premise that the body has energy fields in constant motion. When these fields are not in harmony, a person feels unwell. Realigning the fields helps with healing both physical and emotional ills. Eden (Energy Medicine), a teacher of energy medicine, here addresses this discipline as it relates to women's needs. After a brief overview of the material contained in her previous book, she discusses the use of energy medicine techniques to help women with hormonal issues, PMS, menopause, sexuality, fertility, pregnancy, birth, and weight management. Detailed instructions and illustrations guide readers through the simple exercises designed to realign energy fields. An appendix teaches readers how to test their energy fields, and detailed notes and a resource list offer further information. Since there is growing interest in energy medicine among traditional medical practitioners-Stanford University School of Medicine is running a clinical trial-this book will be a useful addition to consumer health, alternative medicine, and women's health collections.
