In "The Uterine Health Companion," anthropologist and holistic health expert Eve Agee reveals that women in many non-Western societies do not share our high rates of benign uterine problems or our negative attitudes about the uterus. Drawing on her research with women in the United States and abroad, Agee shows how traditional practices from other cultures can help create lasting health so that issues such as PMS, fibroids, and endometriosis do not have to be our destiny as women. Through poignant narratives as well as global insights, the book inspires us to develop new understandings about health and healing that affirm all women.
The Uterine Health Companion demonstrates why the uterus matters and how we can take care of it, from menarche to menopause--and beyond. A comprehensive holistic plan including nutrition, exercise, and visualization guides us to promote uterine wellness and enhance conventional medical therapies. Chapters dedicated to specific uterine issues illustrate how to support our health through simple daily practices and fundamental attitude shifts in our relationship to our bodies. The book also includes strategies for women who have had hysterectomies. This empowering resource offers a prescriptive, balanced approach to developing and maintaining optimal uterine health, for every woman at any stage of life.

About the Author
Praise For The Uterine Health Companion: A Holistic Guide to Lifelong Wellness…
“The Uterine Health Companion is good medicine. Because it’s written from the perspective of a medical anthropologist with cross-cultural experience, it highlights how very skewed the Western medical view of the uterus really is. I highly recommend this book.”
