Overview

In greater numbers than ever before, American women are demanding safe, effective, and affordable medicine. They want to be educated about their health, and they want to be partners with their doctors in choosing healthcare options. This awareness of their opportunities and choices has led women to seek the benefits of natural medicine in ever-increasing numbers, which has led to significant changes in the kpractice of conventional medicine in America. As medical doctors and naturopathic physicians work together more and more often, the resulting system of care -- truly integrated medicine -- will broaden the definition of healthcare.

This addition to the literature of natural healthcare for womenis on the frontier of integrated medicine. It empowers women, giving them knowledge and choices that bring together the best in Western medicine and natural healing traditions. Author and respected naturopath Tori Hudson covers women's health concerns from fibrocystic breasts and vaginitis to pregnancy and menopause. In-depth chapters on each topic provide a thorough explanation of the condition, an outline of conventional medical treatments, and a range of alternative approaches including nutrition, herbal remedies, and exercise. She recommends home treatment plans using these methods and offers sound advice to help women decide when they should consult medical professionals.

As women's choices and opportunities in healthcare increase, so will the need for authoritative information to help them make those choices. Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine is one of those valuable resources -- it is ideal for women learning about their healthcare options as well as medical practitioners who seek to broaden their approach to meet their patients' evolving needs.

"...provides information on a variety of proven complementary therapies...explains when to seek treatment from a conventional doctor and when to seek an alternative healer...covers many health concerns common to women."
