A Barefoot Doctor's Guide for Women

by Georgette Maria Delvaux

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Providing an integrated, commonsense approach to women’s hormonal health, this book brings together materials from diverse sources — alternative and conventional medical journals, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, and the personal experience of the author and her patients — into a single resource.


Georgette Delvaux clearly and interestingly presents a sensible and informative amalgam of the best of both worlds for understanding and empowerment in treatment for a broad range of health issues for women. The presentation and language is extremely accessible and interesting to the reader without medical vocabulary, while at the same time presents valuable information that should be known by the full range of professional healthcare givers, from either conventional allopathic to holistic medicine. Highly recommended for men, (Much of the information would be applicable to men for conditions such as energy imbalances, environmental sensitivity, digestive disorders, and depression.) if only to better understand and become involved in health issues for the women in your life.
