The Essential Guide to Women's Herbal Medicine

Like many of you, I am very nervous about taking medicine. It isn’t that I’m anti-medicine per se, but I’m reluctant to take medicine just because a doctor prescribed it to me. It feels like sometimes doctors just want to take the easy way out, rather than help you truly overcome the issue. For example, I would rather find a way to deal with stress and anxiety naturally than take a prescription. To me, prescriptions should be reserved for bacterial infections or illnesses where you really need medical intervention. For this reason, I love looking at herbal and natural options. Luckily, I found the perfect book for helping me find the right options for my own body – The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine.

The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine: Overall

Honestly, I am extremely impressed with this book. I have read other women’s herbal medicine books and none of them are as comprehensive and down to Earth as this one. It is very easy to read and I love the explanations for many common issues us women face – especially PMS. As I was going through this book for the review, I was quickly making a grocery list to make sure I could pick up everything recommend to help with my PMS and make things that were suggested in some of the case studies. I also love being able to see the medical evidence and studies to back up the suggestions, making it clear that this isn’t just opinion, but fact. Really, I can’t wait to go more through this book as time goes on and see how it can help me take control more of my own health. Based on my own experience, I am delighted to give The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine an A rating.

    I agree, a lot of doctors push medication on their patients, medications that are pushed on them by the drug companies. The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine is a wise purchase.

    I would be interested in reading this.I do know that if you take any prescribed meds that you have to be careful. Even with herbs, there may be an interaction.

    I’m going to show this to my niece, I think she would be interested. She has Lyme disease and she’s a naturopath and she is now on a very strict diet, no dairy, no gluten, no sugar (not even artificial), only a few types of nuts, no yeast, no meat….!

    Thanks so much for the Fantastic Review on The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine Review! WOW! This book sounds like it has everything you need for the things that ail you or to help keep you healthy! I’m just now starting to get into the essential oils. The only one that I have right now is the lavender, which I have not yet tried! Some things I feel I need the medication for such as my diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. I have fibromyalgia as well. I do take a fish oil tablet and a women’s multi-vitamin daily as well. Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review and your personal and professional information on The Essential Guide to Women’s Herbal Medicine Review with all of us! You know that I always appreciate your reviews!!! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

    I have been using natural herbs and teas for a while now. As all pills and medicines you take you still have to watch and read up on them.This looks like a great book I would love to read and learn more.I have to take so many medications if this would help out it would be great! Thank you so much for so many details about the book. I love to read this.

    I always like learning about herbs and their benefits. I like to try natural remedies before using medications. Looks like a great book and I usually read reviews before I purchase a book. I like that your review stated that the book was down to earth and comprehensive which is great to know. I’ve found some herbal books are too simple or full of terminology that difficult for most to understand.

    I hate taking prescription medicine I love the power of natural herbs without the side effects of man made meds, I buy many herbal teas. With spring in effect my allergies are in full swing so I am drinking lots of cold remedy teas.

    Wow. This seems like a good book! I lived in the rural are during my high school days and due to the long distance to town my grandmother grew a garden in her house. I hope get my hands on this book one day whenever I get to make a paypal account. This should be interesting.
