Women's Health for Life: Written by Women for Women

Free sample

Women need their own health reference source. Research into gender-specific medicine — particularly identifying the ways in which diseases and their treatment affect men and women differently — has gainedground in the past 25 years. While this information is familiar to the medical community, much of it is unknown to the layperson. For example, more women than men die of cardiovascular disease every year, possibly because their symptoms are not recognized. Organized by body system, each chapter starts out with an explanation of how that system works and ways to maintain healthy function through diet, exercise, and other self-help measures. This is followed by an explanation of some of the medical conditions affecting that particular system and how they should be treated — in women, not men.

Highly regarded as a women''s health expert and advocate; as a physician educator and as a media commentator, Dr. Moore is the Founder and President of DrDonnica.com, a popular women’s health information website launched in Sept. 2000.
