PRLog - Nov. 7, 2011 - FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- The Uterine Health Companion, winner of the 2011 International Book Awards Women's Health Category, is honored as an Award-Winning Finalist in The USA "Best Books 2011" Awards' Women's Health and Women's Issues Category.

In this ground breaking women's health and empowerment book, medical anthropologist Dr. Eve Agee reveals a silent Western health crisis affecting millions of women.

In the U.S., one-third of all American women will have a hysterectomy in their lifetimes--the highest rate in the world----increasing their risks for heart disease, depression, incontinence, blood clots, hypertension, low libido, and chronic pain.

Yet women in non-Western societies typically experience much lower rates of hysterectomy and menstrual and menopausal problems. While many non-Western cultures celebrate menstruation and menopause and consider their uterine processes sacred, women in the U.S. typically curse their uterine cycles.  

The uterus has been so stigmatized in Western cultures that preventative strategies used to protect other organs like the heart and brain are not widely promoted for the uterus in Western healthcare, even though recent scientific research demonstrates that the uterus produces hormones that protect the heart, reduce high blood pressure, relieve pain, boost mood, and carry out essential immune functions.  

This vital organ also contributes to healthy posture and sexual pleasure and enhances the overall health of all women.

The Uterine Health Companion offers a comprehensive holistic program and global insights that will empower women. It guides women to create vibrant physical and emotional health during menstruation, pregnancy, menopause, and beyond. The book includes chapters for women with fibroids, endometriosis, as well as those who have had or are considering hysterectomies.

This award winning book helps women create healthy, vibrant relationships with their bodies and is essential for every woman at any stage of life.

“The Uterine Health Companion is good medicine. I highly recommend this book.”      Christiane Northrup, MD, bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
