Product Description:
Educates readers about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), ( acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine), and how women's health problems are effectively treated holistically versus the typical Western, compartmentalized approach. Acquire a basic understanding of TCM - what it is and how it works - as well as its benefits, risks and potential for treatment. Potential benefits of using TCM decrease the discouragement and futility felt by many women who cope with chronic health problems like menstrual irregularities, infertility, insomnia, pregnancy related issues and menopause. Women do not usually consider TCM as a treatment alternative until after receiving failed Western treatment. TCM can be a primary part of health care. Information and knowledge about TCm is lacking. TCM can help many women overcome and resolve health concerns. TCM's potential for early detection, strengthening of the immune system, reversal of symptoms and prevention of disease unfortunately remains unnoticed. * Broadens understanding of how TCM and western medicine differ in diagnosis and treatment. A holistic versus compartmentalized approach. * Explains how acupuncture systems work in easy-to-understand language. * Outlines gynecological, reproductive, and menopausal disorders more naturally and completely. * Approaches disorders including PMS, painful, heavy, irregular menstruation, PCOS, infertility, and pregnancy-related issues from a TCM perspective. * Shares nutritional, lifestyle factors and tips to help you make better, more informed choices about your health. * Discusses other health issues including insomnia, incontinence, vaginal itching, heart disease, and headaches. * Explains how TCM considers the impact of lifestyle, diet and nutritional choices and discusses these as part of the treatment plan. .

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Holistic Help for Women: Traditional Chinese Medicine, February 20, 2012
By Savas Evsen
Dr. Albertson shares her 17 years experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with us. Book is very easy and quick to read. It is supported with many charts and Chinese anatomical drawings where reader would need the most to understand the holistic approach. Author believes that TCM may close gaps in Western Traditional Medicine and can be used as an alternative method for women who have gynecological, fertility, pregnancy and menauposal disorders concurrently. It may also ber regarded as a very rare book to read for every women who is concerned with Western Tarditional Medicine. This book will answer many women who needs holistic treatment for today and for future.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women's

Health: Bridging the gap between Western and Eastern Medicine

By Dr. Kathleen Albertson, L. Ac. PHD, Holistic Nutrition


Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is the best book I have read so far, as it is educates everyone who reads it about the traditional medicine practices and how to effectivly treat from a different view then plain doctors.By reading you can easily understand the basics of TCM, what it is and how to make it work for you. It explains the different symptoms and how to prevent them, from going into something even worse.

I am like other women trying to find other ways to treat and take care of myself when I came across this book. It is the best book explaining Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine, that has ever been written. It goes into such detail of different each and every problem known to hit women that a treatment is for. I love the way the book is in 6 parts, each part goes into such detail that you can not ignore what the book tells you.The last part of the book even goes into detail of the history of TCM. If you haven't thought of TCM, and you are a woman, after reading this book, you may do just that.

My conclusion is that every woman needs to have a copy of this book. I have plan to get more of these books and give one to every woman I am close to, as everyone should have one in their personal library. GO and Get this book before its gone. You will not make a mistake.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A book for every woman!, May 23, 2011
By tvansick
In today's world the doctors fill us with medications for any and everything. Some that create more problems after use, I believe in alternative medication. Dr. Albertson's knowledge has been very helpfull. So before heading to that next doctors appointment, take time to see what she has to say. Dr. Albertson has written a very inspiring yet informative book for all of us woman to read.
