Holistic physician Northrup provides women with a practical and empowering guide, relating emotional and psychological conditions at work and home to health problems. (July)

While this book offers a great deal of sound and sympathetic advice about healthy living for women, it is accompanied by an excess of feminist rhetoric and New Age mumbo jumbo. (Do fibroids really ``result when we are flowing life energy into dead ends, such as jobs or relationships we have outgrown''?) The reader might feel more comfortable skipping those parts of this otherwise excellent work. Northrup, the founder of a women's health clinic in Maine, takes up women's standard health problems and offers spiritual and philosophical counsel along with suggestions on dietary change, confronting one's feelings about disease, visualization practices, and other holistic remedies. Although much of this same advice can be found elsewhere (The New Our Bodies Ourselves, LJ 2/1/93), Northrup's approach is more casual. For example, she feels that the main reason for exercise should be that you enjoy it. With so many people seeking advice on achieving a more fulfilling life, this book may be in high demand. For New Age, alternative health, and women's health collections.-Natalie Kupferberg, Montana State Univ. Lib., Bozeman
