Salud! is the first comprehensive reader-friendly health guide specifically designed with the Hispanic woman in mind. The first part of the book examines the problems Latinas often face in the new health care system, arming them with the real-life strategies they need to overcome them. Part two looks at female health problems from a Hispanic perspective, offering expert advice and the most up-to-date findings. Part three covers the diseases and disorders to which Latinas are especially vulnerable, and part four focuses on helping them maintain their health and achieve overall wellness.
Sensitively written by a Latina health care professional and featuring a combination of state-of-the-art medicine, advice, and anecdotes from Latinas, Salud! emphasizes a practical approach to staying healthy that is geared to Hispanic tastes and values. It is the guide the Latina community has been waiting for.
"...addresses the health care concerns specific to the Latina community, explaining prevention and treatment, as well as taking into account religious and spiritual beliefs that may affect their views on health."
