Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Women’s Health by Dr. Kathleen Albertson

I started my book review blog in 2009 and I have read so many outstanding books that I wanted to share them again with my followers on #SegueSaturday.  I first posted this review in July 2010.  It is a very enlightening guide to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and may just change your mind about Western medicine and your health.  Enjoy!


This book addresses how modern medicine treats the symptoms and how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats the root cause of the problem.  Dr. Albertson helps women understand that acupuncture and TCM are alternatives to medicating and surgery.  Dating back to 5,000 B.C. she explains that TCM It is one of the oldest most commonly used medical procedures in the world.

Dr. Albertson has done a thorough job of including articles and studies in support of acupuncture and TCM, quotes from patients who have been successfully treated, a glossary of terms, an interesting history of TCM, and most importantly, an explanation of what to expect when you visit an acupuncturist.

A piece of excellent advice that I will take away from this book is “to become my own health advocate, take responsibility, research options and ask questions.  Seek alternatives.”

Thank you to Dr. Albertson and Vervante publishing for the opportunity to review this book.
