Table of
Women, Hormones & the Menstrual Cycle is the definitive guide to natural medicine and women's health, focusing on health complaints from adolescence through to menopause and beyond. Ruth Trickey and practitioners from the Melbourne Holistic Health Group and other contributors, provide comprehensive information and treatment protocols based on years of research and clinical experience. This book is essential reading for professional health care providers and health science students, as well as individuals interested in a more thorough understanding of the health concerns affecting women. This 3rd edition was fully revised in 2011 providing research on evidenced-based natural medicine. A range of gynaecological complaints are discussed including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), amenorrhoea and menopausal symptoms. Unique to Women, Hormones & the Menstrual Cycle is the focus on a collaborative model of health care, where naturopathic treatments for specific conditions are presented alongside more conventional medical approaches.
Ruth Trickey has spent 48 years in health care, 40 years of which were as a natural therapist. Over this time, she has had a particular focus on building bridges between disparate health care disciplines. In the beginning this was no mean feat - the ‘us and them' culture was very much alive and well when she first started practicing in the late 1970s. Through lecturing, writing, and in the clinic, she developed a team approach which aimed to allow patients to achieve the best from all health care modalities. She termed this collaborative medicine and it is an approach that has spread far and wide amongst Australian practitioners.
