The only popular holistic medical guide for  women,Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom  is the long-awaited, much-needed, unique,  practical and philosophical approach to healing that  empowers women to take control of their physical and  emotional health. As radically feminist as  Our Bodies, Ourselveswas in its day,  Dr. Northrup's guide cites dramatic and affecting  cases of women healing from long-term illnesses  through alternative medical methods, and gives  groundbreaking mind-body guidance. This revolutionary  book combines curing with caring, knowledge with  intuition, and demonstrates that physical healing is  inseparable from spiritual healing. It  authoritatively and compassionately guides readers through an  A to Z list of women's conditions from fibroids,  menstruation, and vaginitis to cancer,  hysterectomy, and menopause.

I came across this book a decade ago when I was seeking to understand my body better. It has become a useful reference guide since. Dr. Northrup takes a wholistic approach to women's health that is rooted in mind-body wellness. This books utilizes years of experience from her medical practice, it educates and empowers.

Whether you want to understand how hormones work in the female body, how to do a breast self exam, what kind of questions to ask your doctor during a visit, how to listen to signs and symptoms from your body, the role that nutrition plays in overall health, useful supplements etc., this books has a lot to offer.

Here is a taste, 'Creating vibrant health means accepting that there are events in everyone's life that cannot be explained or changed, and at the same time realizing that each of us has a conscious input into our state of health through choosing relationships, thoughts, foods, and activities that support and nourish us fully'.
