ABOUT THE BOOK:
For people looking for medical counsel: although the information, ideas, and perspectives contained in this book are based on Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese, or Western allopathic principles or studies, and even thoughóin the case of Ayurvedic or Traditional Chinese Medicineósuch perspectives have been employed for thousands of years, no part of this book should be taken or construed as medical diagnosis or treatment. One significant component of Eastern medical philosophy is that each person has individual, unique needs, so no single recommendation, no matter how sound, is sound for every individual. For any medical condition or personal medical, herbal, dietary, or lifestyle advice, always consult with a qualified health-care practitioner. There is always more to medicine than any one practitioner can know, not to mention more to an individual's health than an author can address without ever having even met that person. It is up to
each of us to do our own search, find what works for us, and implement it. This book was born out of my own attempts to understand the sea of information available on womenís health. The conclusions that author has drawn are not facts. They are educated opinions.
Tired? Overworked? Stressed? The link between balanced hormones, stress, and overall health is often overlooked, primarily because of conflicting and confusing information. Now, internationally renowned Doctor of Oriental Medicine Claudia Welch breaks through the jargon and demystifies the secrets behind hormonal health by combining Western medical analysis with Eastern wisdom.

"It's hard to imagine a better guide through the thicket of mis-information and conflicting claims surrounding women's hormonal health than Dr. Claudia Welch. She's smart, practical, scientifically savvy, and steeped in two ancient holistic healing traditions, and she writes with a light tough.
