Although there are several general guides to homeopathic medicine, this book, excellent in its own right, is all the more valuable as the only title to deal exclusively with women's health problems. Part 1 describes homeopathy--material that can easily be found in other sources. Part 2 takes 13 common health concerns of women and details their causes, symptoms, and treatment. Part 3, "A-Z of Other Conditions," briefly suggests treatments for other diseases. The authors, both British M.D.s, always recommend a balance between homeopathic and more mainstream kinds of medical care. Several appendixes include a general remedy finder where the reader can look up homeopathic treatment for individual diseases and a listing of the ingredients of homeopathic remedies. There is also a short chapter on nutrition. Recommended for large alternative or women's health collections.

There already exist homeopathic guides for the family and for children, and several pregnancy and childbirth titles have such an emphasis, but Lockie and Geddes' book may well be the first aimed at women's ailments. The Women's Guide describes what homeopathy is, how it works, and how to use the various remedies. Although it is considered largely a self-help system, the authors do recommend consulting a professional occasionally. Unfortunately, this is undoubtedly easier to do in Great Britain (the authors are British), where homeopathy is more widely accepted and practiced. Comprehensive and straightforward, the guide covers fertility, beauty care, menstrual problems, and many more areas of female health, including "A-Z of Other Conditions." For whatever reason, the more general, that is, nonhomeopathic, advice tends to be more conservative and even conflicts with the usual "alternative" guide. Nonetheless, this book appears to be useful for the general public. Jo Peer-Haas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
