The book for every woman who cares about her health

At last, the ultimate reference book for women of all ages. The Nutritional Health Handbook for Women tells you everything you need to know about the most effective ways to treat all aspects of your health naturally. Top nutritionist and women's health expert Dr Marilyn Glenville believes that many female health problems are caused by incorrect nutrition and can be dramatically improved through simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. Based on 20 years of clinical experience and research, her approach is proven, highly successful and non-invasive. Inside you will discover:
  • Practical day-to-day nutritional advice to help you improve your health naturally
  • How to treat symptoms or condition without the use of surgery or drugs
  • Which tests, supplements, herbs and nutrition you should use for the best results
  • How to prevent your condition from recurring
  • The facts about orthodox, complementary and nutritional treatments and how to decide which is best for you
  • Reassuring and proven advice on all aspects of women's hormonal health

"This book is about women's health and those problems that are specific only to women. I have written it calling on my 20 years of experience of specialising in women’s problems. Over time, it has become clear that when women come to see me they tell me that they not only want to know what natural remedies are available to treat their problem and get themselves back to optimum health, but they also want details of the conventional medical options as well. Quite rightly, many women feel that they want as much information as possible in order to be able to make an informed decision about which treatment to choose.

How Can This Book Help You?
"This book is very different to anything you will have read before. It is a very specific, self-help book. What you will find, for each problem, is a carefully structured programme designed to help you gain relief from your health problems and help you to maintain optimum health in the future. The information presented is the accumulation of knowledge I have gained in working with thousands of women over the years, using nutrition and herbs to help them get their health back and stay healthy. It is this knowledge that I am passing on to you.

"Maybe you've just been told that you have a problem, such as fibroids or endometriosis, for example, and that you need a hysterectomy or drugs. You may not be comfortable with this suggested treatment and wonder if there are any other choices. What you really want to know is what other options are open to you. Is a hysterectomy the only choice for your particular problem, or are there other medical options available? What about a more natural and non-invasive approach? Could nutritional medicine help? Is it effective? Is it appropriate for your problem? Can it get rid of your symptoms and help you to feel better?
"This book lets you know what choices are available to you both naturally and medically. It takes you though the natural options that can be used for your health problem and then explains the medical approaches involving drugs or surgery that could also be used. It also helps you to plan a treatment strategy, whereby you may want to use both natural and medical treatments alongside one another. Alternatively, you may choose to 'go natural' for six months or so, and then have a medical check-up to see how effective this treatment has been.
"There are many books available, with treatment plans involving long lists of supplements and herbs from which the reader is supposed to choose. However, I have often felt confused when reading such lists. How do you make the choice as to which ones are right for you, how much do you take and for how long?
"This book is different. At the end of every section, you are presented with a treatment plan with simple, clear and specific recommendations to follow. These recommendations are the ones I use with many of the women who come to see me, and find to be the most effective and to make the most difference..."
