Despite heavy resistance or lack of recognition from patriarchal medicine, they are nevertheless making positive changes that will continue and increase. Women’s emphasis on one-to-one work practiced in mutual agreement and participation is very different from mechanized and big-money medicine, and has results and successes far beyond expectations.

    This book was recommended to me, so I gave it a try and got much more out of it than I’d anticipated. Author Diane Stein practices different types of healing, but also provides a great deal of information on everything from laying on of stones to Reiki, acupressure, acupuncture, reflexology, herbs, homeopathy, as well as vitamins and minerals. There were also interesting topics I knew nothing about such as polarity balancing, muscle testing, applied kinesiology and gem elixirs. This book was writ This book was recommended to me, so I gave it a try and got much more out of it than I’d anticipated. Author Diane Stein practices different types of healing, but also provides a great deal of information on everything from laying on of stones to Reiki, acupressure, acupuncture, reflexology, herbs, homeopathy, as well as vitamins and minerals. There were also interesting topics I knew nothing about such as polarity balancing, muscle testing, applied kinesiology and gem elixirs. This book was written in 1990 and while many of the topics are still relevant, a small portion of the material is a little dated. Back then AIDS was still a relatively new disease at the center of attention and terrifying people worldwide. Since 1990, women have contributed much more to all types of healing. Additionally, many patients have stopped accepting a medical doctor’s word as gospel. We’ve learned to ask questions, seek second opinions, and do our own research. I understand Stein’s negativity toward the male medical establishment and the pharmaceutical companies whose costly drugs have destroyed a lot of lives. In many chapters, she provides a short historical perspective that discusses the annihilation of matriarchies, individual women, and their healing practices over the centuries. But the author barely acknowledges the millions of lives that have improved with drugs, and her harsh tone (in just a few spots) left me thinking that her perspective isn’t as balanced as I would have liked. Her stance that women need vitamins because we’re only getting a fraction of our needs would have been stronger if she’d offered summaries of studies or at least some statistical data to back up her statements about the inadequate nutritional value of the food we eat. These are probably minor quibbles, though, compared to the amount of helpful information presented in this book. Those who are truly interested in healing will find this a welcome addition to their libraries. I certainly do.

    picked up from half price books + decided to give it a try. didn’t know what i expected from a 2nd wave feminist, like this book was soooo TERF-y and gross. equating “women’s bodies” to a singular thing instead of recognizing women as a class status lol bitch try again. half the stuff ms. stein says in this book is basically useless since it’s based on the idea of all women being birthgivers or having vaginas. some parts were useful towards the end when she stopped talking about a universal woma picked up from half price books + decided to give it a try. didn’t know what i expected from a 2nd wave feminist, like this book was soooo TERF-y and gross. equating “women’s bodies” to a singular thing instead of recognizing women as a class status lol bitch try again. half the stuff ms. stein says in this book is basically useless since it’s based on the idea of all women being birthgivers or having vaginas. some parts were useful towards the end when she stopped talking about a universal womanhood & just got right to the point about tinctures. otherwise not really worth anybody’s time; we need more trans & gnc witches writing works on natural healing instead ⚔️⚔️⚔️✨

    While this might be a good how-to for people interested in entering the healing arts, I would take some of what is claimed with a grain of salt. I don’t think some of the historical and scientific claims are very accurate, I would check the sources. I also think much of the book tries to say “anyone can do this! Just read this manual!” and I think it’s important to mention that formal training and apprenticing is actually really valuable, like in Reiki for example.

    One of the most interesting, important reads of my life! Upon my sisters recommendation I not only read this book, I continually re-read it on occasion! Very well researched and loaded with insight, recommendations and natural healing modalities specifically targeted to women, this book can open your mind and heart to that inner voice that can nurture, heal and inspire us. Through this voice we can gain optimal health and can even learn to heal others.

    Liked how it was organized. Not sure about the whole history of some things in this book because I don't have anything to compare it too so not really sure if she was correct in her histories. Need to read more books on those histories and healing that I am not too sure about. Other than that the book was really good and very very interesting and will definitely and has definitely helped me with my clients and my massage business. Liked how it was organized.

    This book has some good information if you can ignore the author's negative attitude towards men. All of this information could just as easily be applied to men interested in the healing arts.

    I read this a long time ago and should probably read it again - I do remember it had some excellent descriptions of a variety of healing techniques, with good discussions of how they could be used.
