This practical health guide reconnects women to the experience of an important stage of human development. The book examines and teaches how to work with the different menstrual energy patterns through natural self-help strategies that include nutrition and herbs, the Triple Goddess, meditations and imagery, vibrational healing using quartz crystals and flower essences, and hand reflexology. Using a down-to-earth, nature-connected approach to menstruation, women will learn to embrace this essential process of their womanhood.

Women's Wisdom: Wellness Strategies for the Menstrual Years, Laurel Alexander, Findhorn Press, 2013, $14.95 Laurel Alexander is our wise woman, teaching women in the tradition of the village elder about our bodies, our hearts and our minds. She is the keeper of women’s wisdom — a collection of rituals, herbs and nutritional prescriptions for keeping a woman’s body healthy and strong throughout the journey from childbearing years to menopause. In Wellness Strategies for the Menstrual Years, Alexander debunks the culturally perceived notion of menstruation as a burden. Instead, we celebrate our moontime, a woman’s period of heightened creativity. We celebrate our sacred role as the giver of life. This book is a must-have gift for young women entering womanhood, and a treasure trove of information for all women to use monthly. — Vicky Thompson, New Connexion Journal
