|2nd Ed Ruth Trickey.
Women, Hormones and the Menstrual Cycle is an essential text for anyone interested in women's health, and provides a comprehensive and practical explanation of menstrual complaints from adolescence to menopause.
Ruth Trickey discusses a range of treatment options, including specific drugs and surgical procedures used in orthodox medicines, as well as natural therapies and self-help suggestions. Much of her focus is on those natural remedies-be it simple lifestyle changes or complex herbal prescriptions-that she has found to be effective during her more than 20 years of clinical practice.
This new edition has been fully revised and updated to include the latest research into herbal remedies, drugs and surgery, and to take into account new approaches to treatments for conditions such as PCOS. New material has also been included on premenstrual dysphoric disorder, osteoporosis, amenorrhoea and the causes and treatment of menorrhagia, such as fibroids and uterine polyps.
Women, Hormones and the Menstrual Cycle is an essential text for all health care professionals involved in the treatment of gynaecological complaints. It is also a valuable addition to any woman's library to allow her to participate in her own health care and equip her with the relevant questions for doctors and natural therapists alike.
