An esteemed Harvard Medical School doctor who has developed relaxation methods designed to reduce stress and heal the body now applies those techniques to the seven health issues that most commonly affect women: PMS, infertility, difficult pregnancies, menopause, eating disorders, breast and gynecological cancers, and endometriosis/pelvic pain.

Dr. Domar has created an integrated program of mainstream therapies combined with mind-body relaxation techniques that works far better than either approach alone. Whether used to help women conceive, reduce both the physical and psychological symptoms of PMS, cut down on menopausal hot flashes, or improve self-esteem, Dr. Domar's methods are proven effective, and are now available to all women who want to use their minds to heal their bodies.

This is a fabulous book that I've used for years to help me stay on a reasonably even keel. Domar really makes the mind-body connection work without getting so voodoo like that you feel guilty for taking a tylenol. Read full review
