For too long, women's health care has been dominated by a strictly masculine vision of medicine. Linda Valins, a respected authority on women's health issues, seeks to redress the balance by urging women to become involved in their own health care. Intimate Matters is about creating a positive relationship with one's body. In a frank yet reassuring style, it demystifies and helps women become aware of their natural bodily rhythms. It encourages women to expect a more balanced approach to health care from GPs, gynecologists, or alternative practitioners-and to be confident enough to get it. As it explores the spiritual and emotional aspects of health, its aim is to put the "heart," and the feminine principle, back into medicine. Linda Valins is the author of When a Woman's Body Says No to Sex.
