Dr Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health

Take Charge of Your Physical and Emotional Wellbeing

Have you ever felt like your health and your healthcare were in someone else’s hands?

Well, it doesn’t have to be that way any longer!

You truly can take charge of your health – and your healthcare!

Dr Carol's Guide to Women's HealthWomen’s Health has become a hot topic in 21st century culture. When you hear that term you probably think first of the kind of healthcare you would receive at a women’s clinic or your OB-Gyn physician’s office. Unfortunately the controversies over such things as contraception, abortion, and insurance coverage have obscured what women’s health is really all about.

A healthy woman is so much more than her reproductive organs!

Have you ever:

  • Wondered whether your symptoms are “normal” or something serious?
  • Struggled with a love-hate relationship with your hormones?
  • Wanted to use as-natural-as-possible means to deal with your health issues, but didn’t know where to start?
  • Felt overwhelmed at the confusing and expensive American healthcare system?
  • Wished for a way to consistently bring your faith into the decisions you make about your reproductive health – minus the drama?
  • Needed to lose weight, manage stress better, or connect with your husband?

Those are exactly the kind of questions Dr Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health will help you with.

This book addresses the spectrum of both physical and mental/emotional health issues women face throughout the various stages of their lives by bringing together:

  • medical science,
  • my practical experience, and
  • a faith perspective.

In over 20 years of practice as an OB-Gyn physician and now as a speaker, radio/TV host, and ordained Christian minister, I’ve seen women just like you struggle with these issues.

But there’s so much you can do to get better. You can take charge of your physical and emotional wellbeing. You can take charge of your health, and your healthcare. And this book will help you do just that.

In Dr Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health I talk about what’s normal and what’s not when it comes to women’s health. I talk about pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, pregnancy, contraception, infertility, menopause, and hormones. I also talk about preventing diseases of aging, staying younger longer, interacting with the healthcare system, supplements, and saving on your healthcare dollar. I talk about women’s mental health issues (including those related to hormonal problems), sex and sexuality, stress management, and healthy spirituality.

I’m so excited you’ve come here to check out Dr Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health! I can hardly wait until February 2nd, 2016, when the book will be available.
