Banyen's Description: 

First published in 1994, this book has remained the veritable bible for women’s health. Now completely revised and updated [as of 2020] with the latest research and information, this is the primo holistic medical guide for women—covering every topic a woman might ever wish to explore—and a bargain at the price. It’s a unique, informed, practical and philosophical approach to healing that empowers women to take control of their physical and emotional health. As positively feminist as Our Bodies, Ourselves was in its day, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom cites dramatic and affecting cases of emotional and psychological trauma contributing to women’s obstetrical and gynecological ailments. It also demonstrates that when women change the basic conditions of their lives that lead to health problems, they can virtually heal themselves with complementary alternative medical methods and groundbreaking mind-body guidance. This healing book about healing combines curing with caring, knowledge with intuition, and shows how physical healing is inseparable from spiritual healing.

Northrup, the wise woman healer you always wanted on your side, authoritatively and compassionately guides readers through an A to Z list of women’s conditions from fibroids, menstruation, and vaginitis to cancer, hysterectomy, hormones and menopause. With tables, charts, rituals, self-inventories, life stories and exercises, it can guide you on your healing journey to:

  •  Recognize the wisdom inherent in each of your body’s processes—from menstruation through menopause
  • Understand how and why these processes are part of your personal inner guidance system.

Reflecting today's woman's proactive involvement in her own health care, this new edition will help women enjoy vibrant health with far fewer medical interventions.

“At last a book that covers women’s health that includes the broad areas of important medical and holistic knowledge we need to know to fully take care of ourselves. We are clearly led through basic physiological, medical, psychological, human-energy field, dietary, and physical-exercise information that will help us shift our personal health care into the new paradigm encompassed by women’s wisdom.” —Barbara Brennan, author of Hands of Light
