Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book by an Australian midwife/naturopath on menstrual problems and their treatment proves to be a winner by offering the best of Western medicine combined with natural therapies. This very balanced work includes detailed explanations of how hormones function and what causes things to go wrong. Trickey discusses nutrition, herbs, drugs, and surgery as possible solutions to such gynecological problems as premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts while explaining the historical use of treatments. Those working with adolescents will find value in the chapter on menarche, and older women will find insight in Trickey's discussion of chemical, surgical, and natural treatments for menopausal symptoms. Technical yet understandable, the book is very clear on what can and cannot be treated with natural therapies. Be aware that the spellings, statistics, and measurements are Australian. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Elizabeth A. Williams, Houston Acad. of Medicine-Texas Medical Ctr. Lib.
