Summary

People in increasing numbers are turning to homeopathy to treat some of today's most common conditions. In Whole Woman Homeopathy, expert homeopath and bestselling author Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman gives timely advice to women who are seeking a drug-free, natural approach to their health. Arranged from A to Z by condition, this clearly written, comprehensive guide teaches the reader how homeopathy can treat every woman's most common health concerns -- physical, mental, and emotional -- including depression, menopause, osteoporosis, PMS, and many more.

Library Journal Review

Reichenberg-Ullman, a licensed naturopathic physician who specializes in homeopathic family medicine, offers alternatives to pharmaceutical treatments for physical as well as mental and emotional ailments. She instructs women on the self-treatment of minor illnesses such as breast feeding difficulties, bladder infections, and depression but also on when to seek the advice of a homeopathic professional for more serious problems such as breast cancer, acute anxiety, and eating disorders. Excerpts contributed by the author!s patients add to the readability of this book. Alternative medicines have become so popular that they have just recently graced the May 2000 cover of Consumer Reports, and recent changes in federal legislation regarding the medical coverage of alternative healthcare requires large public libraries and medical libraries to be prepared to address the increased volume of queries regarding these treatments. Recommended as a supplement to a collection of healthcare alternatives though not as a sole source of information."Trisha Stevenson, NYU Sch. of Medicine (c) Copyright 2010.
