Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This compendium of non-drug therapies provides a wide variety of low-tech, low-risk options to traditional treatments, including herbal remedies, aromatherapy, exercise, nutritional approaches and lifestyle change. Addressing not only conventional illnesses, the editors consider such conditions as frizzy hair, computer anxiety, hot flashes and heart disease. The first chapter offers gentle remedies for about 30 everyday ailments, arranged alphabetically from aches and pains to yeast infections. Serious and chronic conditions are covered next, followed by hormonal and reproductive issues, and then pesky personal appearance problems. Emotional health is not neglected, with coping techniques offered to women who are single mothers, are in the throes of divorce, are frequent travelers or who have other demanding lifestyles. A clock or calendar in the margin marks treatments that are most effective when begun at a particular time of the day or month, and boldface warnings indicate conditions calling for a medical doctor's attention. Although a trifle hit-or-miss, this volume nevertheless is a handy reference for women interested in natural remedies for the hazards of 20th-century living. (Sept.)
Library Journal
From pregnancy to depression, this tome describes how to feel better without medical interventions. A board of healthcare professionals provides the commonsense advice, which is organized into 16 chapters and generally outlines established preventive-medicine techniques. Occasional mention of alternative therapies warns patients to consult physicians first, though the book would have been improved by additional recommendations to complement standard medical care. Still, this book does no harm. Readers of The Doctor's Book of Home Remedies for Women (Rodale, 1997) or Ellen Michaud and Elisabeth Torg's Total Health for Women (Rodale, 1995) will recognize the easy-to-read Rodale style, though those wanting better documentation should turn to Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno's The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine (Prima, 1997). Ultimately, this book is acceptable for larger public libraries and for smaller libraries with consumer health collections, though those owning one of the aforementioned Rodale titles need not purchase.
