Leading integrated health specialist Dr Ali treats more women than men in his clinic. Now he brings all his experience to bear on this information-packed, encyclopaedic book. The first part explains why women need their own health bible - gynaecologists and obstetricians cannot understand all the problems of women, says Dr Ali, so this book offers a pioneering approach to help women understand their specific health issues and deal with them themselves. He explains how a woman's mind and body function differently from a man's and describes the many different factors that contribute, including body types and birth signs. He provides an MOT enabling every woman to assess her own general health, and his own health-enhancing Lifestyle Programme. Chapters on general health and well being include reproductive health (from menstrual cycles to the menopause), sexuality and sexual problems, pregnancy and maternity care, weight control, skin and hair care, ageing gracefully, general diseases more prevalent in women and psychological problems (from eating disorders to post-natal depression).
