At least one-third of Americans use alternative medicines to heal and maintain health-- 75 percent of those consumers are women. Today, women are demanding their doctors have a willingness to explore and combine complementary and conventional medical practices in their approach to female health. The result is a bridge between the two schools of thought commonly known as integrated medicine, which requires women to become proactive in their role as patient and provides a safe, effective approach to maintaining and healing their bodies. "Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine" thoroughly covers the whole range of women's health concerns including menstrual difficulties, menopause, endometriosis, osteoperosis, and others and explains how integrated medicine can be used to treat these conditions. Dr. Hudson explores a plethora of complementary therapies-- including vitamin supplementation, herbs, diet and exercise-- and helps women decide when self-care is possible and when a conventional doctor should be consulted. Tori Hudson, N.D., has made this resource the definitive guide to integrated women's medicine for the health professional as well as the patient seeking more affordable and safer approaches to both common and complicated female health issues.
