This book is the definitive guide to natural medicine and women's health, focusing on health complaints from adolescence through to menopause and beyond. It is essential reading for professional health care providers and health science students, as well as individuals interested in a more thorough understanding of the health concerns affecting women.
This 3rd edition has been fully revised providing up to date research on current evidenced based natural medicine. A range of gynaecological complaints are discussed including pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), amenorrhoea and menopausal symptoms. Unique to this book is the focus on a collaborative model of health care, where naturopathic treatments for specific conditions are presented alongside more conventional medical approaches.
