Many of the issues that relate to women's health from period pain to infertility, can be self-treated with Chinese medicine approaches, and this clear and practical guide explains how to assess symptoms and choose the most effective form of treatment. Written for women interested in taking a more active role in their own health and well-being, the book covers health issues of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and post-partum, menopause, fertility, and fibrocystic breast disease amongst others. Taking a holistic approach that includes the traditional Chinese approach that food is medicine, appropriate recipes are included along with other treatment suggestions. The author provides an overview of the history of Chinese medicine and a clear and simple explanation of the principles of its theoretical basis, including the 5 vital substances, organ theory, channel (meridian theory) and the nature of Yin and Yang, thus providing a context for understanding symptoms from a Chinese perspective, and treatments that can be undertaken at home.

Eddie is one of Ireland's leading practitioners of Chinese Medicine. His book gives a very informative overview of a very debilitating issue for many women; it gives a wonderful understanding of how Chinese medicine can help an area of women's health that is often under-treated with modern medicine. It shows how Chinese medicine has a role in the age of synthetic drugs and can complement modern medicine. -- Eamonn Brady (MPharm, MPSI) Pharmacist and owner of Whelehans Pharmacy, Pearse St and Clonmore Mullingar, Co Westmeath
