Description

Comprehensive health guide for women written in simple language and illustrated with many photographs, designed to appeal to a large audience of all cultural backgrounds, from teens to senior adults. With a compelling foreword by CNN international journalist Jill Dougherty and touching personal stories women can relate to, this excellent guide helps women recognize symptoms relating to particular diseases; explore possible treatment options; and educate themselves on the latest recommendations for key health screenings, tests, and immunizations.

Empowers women to:

  • Recognize signs of heart attack and stroke as well as understand risk factors
  • Learn the risks for type 2 diabetes and how to manage it
  • Deal with the diagnosis of an autoimmune disease
  • Understand the impact of chronic pain
  • Care for their mental health
  • Prepare their body for pregnancy and delivery
  • Request a second opinion when they feel it's necessary

This guidebook also contains full-color charts and diagrams to help readers understand their bodies and offers information not found in other women's health resources, such as how to teach women to read a Prescription Drug Label and explore insurance options, and provides tips along with graphic representations for healthy eating and managing portion sizes, and more. Includes a glossary, extensive bibliography, additional resources, and a cross-referenced index.

Audience

Women of all ages, as well as nutritionists and health and medical specialists interested in women's health issues will find this publication useful.
