Book description
Written for women by the foremost authority in  women's health, and more comprehensive than every  other book on the subject, this painstakingly  researched definitive guide to women's health care in  the nineties is categorized by body part from head  to toe. For too long, women have been treated  peripherally by the health care industry. Women today  need an authoritative, all-encompassing health  reference book that offers succinct, clear information  about health issues specifically tailored to them;  a book that provides complete and practical  answers to the questions they have about their health.  The Women's Complete Health Book is  just that. Written by a collection of the  country's most influential female physicians, it contains  up-to-the-minute information on a wide variety of  general health problems as well as issues of  exclusive concern to women: The increasing risk of  heart disease in women * Minimizing the risk of breast  cancer * Breakthroughs in contraception and  reproductive rights * Pros and cons of estrogen  replacement therapy * The important role of B vitamins in  the treatment of PMS, Fibroid  tumors and hysterectomies * The mammography  controversy * Women's increasing risk  of AIDS.

Examining and illuminating the important  physical passages of women's lives, and the critical  effects of these changing life-cycles, this  crucial volume targets a different part of the body in  each chapter, allowing speedy access to specific  information about disease. Each entry explains the  key indications of the problem, and includes basic  information such as origins and occurrence, the  long- and short-term consequences, and a thorough  discussion of treatment options. Contributor and  spokesperson for The Women's Complete  Healthbook is Dr. Roselyn Payne Epps, the  first black woman to serve as president of AMWA, a  strong advocate of medical services for the poor, and  a practicing pediatrician, teacher, administrator,  and organizational leader for nearly 40 years. The  American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) is a  national organization of women physicians and  medical students dedicated to increasing the influence  of women in the medical profession. Founded in  1919, it is made up of 11,000 doctors, residents, and  interns, and it based in Washington D.C.
