Book Description

The groundbreaking New York Times bestseller now available for the first time in trade paperback, with a new Introduction

When it was originally published in 1982, The G Spot was the first book to prove the existence and define the location of the Gräfenberg spot, a patch of erectile tissue that can be felt through the front wall of the vagina, directly behind the pubic bone. In print continuously for twenty-two years, it has sold more than 600,000 copies to date.

This first-ever trade paperback edition includes a new introduction by Dr. Hilda Hutcherson, author of What Your Mother Never Told Your about S-E-X, which brings the research in the book up-to-date and explains its continued relevance. Now a new generation of men and women can take advantage of the insights and practical suggestions of this classic work.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is very informative on how to gget it.
I'd like know where the person gets their medical information from? As a licenced med (paramedic), going to med school, I have to say that most, though not all, doctors do recognize the existance of the G-spot. After all the G stands for the doctor who, supossedly, dicovered it. And as for orgasms, any informed doctor will tell you that there are more than one kind, and way to get them. This book does a complete job of covering this one ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking Work
This book is only outdated BECAUSE it was among the first in its class to explore the concept that a woman is allowed and supposed to gain pleasure from sex and deliver that idea to the public. In that regard it is an amazing piece of sexual education literature. The revised edition was released in the early 80s, but I believe it was written much earlier than that. It was written during a time when women (and men) were much less informed about the female anatomy, and there are numerous accounts in this book of women being embarassed by their orgasms because they were misunderstood. I believe that this book is helpful not only to the women of the time it was written but to women today. I read this book knowing full well what a G Spot was and what it did but I still found the history of it to be quite fascinating. In reading this book I not only came to more fully understand my own body and how it works but also what I can do to help it work more efficently and to my best sexual advantage. This book changed my sex life in an amazing way and for that I will always be grateful.

3-0 out of 5 stars Question
Can someone tell me where these ideas of Fokorg and Hammil can be found that were mentioned in the previous customer review? I've run Web searches on these and found absolutely nothing. Please email at chachetpanache@hotmail.com. (P.S. I haven't read the book, my star rating was just because it was a required field to enter in the review page.)

1-0 out of 5 stars No useful information
This book was a boring weak monograph on a subject that needs new coverage. Instead of covering Fokorg's or Hammil's new theories and suggestions on stimulating the G-spot and explosive orgasm, this book brought me back to the 60s asking does a G-spot exist? and gave the reader endless detail to prove that it does. As a Gynecologist, I have been taught and I have taught that a G-spot exists for nearly 30 years. As a woman I was bored endlessly by a book that offered little to no new information on the G-spot and no information on stimulating the G-spot. Do not buy.

Regardless, I praise Amazon.com for advocating freedom of expression even if it may involve bad reviews of books they sell.

1-0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK IS NOW 0UT-DATED
The belief that the G-spot does not exist is just as dogmatic as the insistance that it does! I suppose if the book gets people to talk and explore, it is almost worth the money, but every woman needs to find out about her own body, by herself and with her partner, and not try to live up the to expectations portrayed in this book - like the myth that G-spot stimulation will inevitably lead to a female ejaculation. Forget the super-sex pressures of sex books like this and just explore. ... Read more

Book Description

For a mother, "Mother Nature" seems like a real prankster.

Over the last century, life expectancy for women has increased by 30 years. And many of us are using that extra time to attain advanced degrees, establish ourselves in our careers, start up businesses, even run for political office. Yet while we've put marriage and family on hold to pursue other dreams, we are also steadily losing eggs-- and with each lost egg goes an opportunity to have a baby.

Sounds grim? It doesn't have to. The truth is, by working with Mother Nature, instead of against her, there are scores of things you can do-- starting today-- to preserve and protect your fertility.

It's a proven fact: Healthy women are fertile women. And within these pages, you'll find a comprehensive program to boost your health and optimize your fertility. Based on the best, most current advice from the top fertility experts in both conventional and alternative medicine, Stay Fertile Longer gives you all the information you need, whether you're ready to start a family today, 5 years from now, or even in the next decade! Best of all, you'll increase your odds for conceiving quickly and easily-- and without the need for expensive high-tech treatments such as in vitro fertilization.

If you're ready to start a family today, simply follow the get-pregnant-now plan in part 3. There's a frank discussion of the subtleties of lovemaking to increase conception odds, a detailed program for understanding your cycle and charting your peak fertile days each month, and even a primer on the prenatal tests you'll want to get at your next doctor visit.

What if you and your partner have tried to get pregnant for 6 months or more without success? Stay Fertile Longer has an array of natural options for overcoming fertility obstacles such as hormone imbalances or a compromised reproductive system. You'll be introduced to healing methods including massage, yoga, and herbal remedies. And in the event that you do need to resort to high-tech options, these natural remedies will complement fertility medications and assisted reproduction techniques, boosting your odds for success.

Whether you want to become a mother today or "someday," this book is for you.

Book Description

Includes the latest research on how to combat osteoporosis, endometriosis, heart disease, PMS, fibroids, and breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer.

* A must-read for any woman taking synthetic hormones for infertility or birth control, PMS, or menopause.

* Explains the most recent research on diet, endometriosis, osteoporosis, and breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer.

* Previous editions have sold more than 50,000 copies.

In this revised and expanded third edition, Raquel Martin offers the most up-to-date information on how botanical progesterone therapy can offer safe, natural relief for many of the discomforts women face from hormone deficiency, including PMS, menstrual irregularity, infertility, depression, uterine fibroids, and the symptoms of menopause. She explains the up-to-the-minute research on diet, endometriosis, osteoporosis, and breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer that every woman should know. The book also provides mail-order sources for botanical progesterone creams and supplements. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's your hormones
This book is one of my most shared title's to understanding your body and your hormone balance.

Martin included contributions by doctors, M.D. or PhD, who have done the research and clinical work to prove this book is on topic and more helpful than the majority of 'women's books' out there, including a popular female M.D. I get the feeling she doesn't know the difference between natural and synthetic progesterones...which don't have the same effects...and the synthetic has nasty side effects.

When your hormones are balanced you don't need meditation, and you discover your 'toxic' relationships that contribute to your hormone imbalance are easier to 'detoxify.' When you feel good, those around you feel better too.

A good starter book for someone who is now experiencing female 'problems' and wants a real answer instead of useless medicating and surgery. Don't miss checking out constributors, Dr. Peat and Dr. Lee's personal websites. In that order.

5-0 out of 5 stars InnerSelf.com review
As more and more people become aware of the dangers of synthetic hormone replacement therapy, they turn to alternative health and natural remedies for solutions. Raquel Martin's revised and expanded edition of her book "The Estrogen Alternative" takes these concerns to heart and offers practical solutions for women whether it be for menstrual cramps and PMS, menopause, or just plain feeling "sick and tired".

The author speaks from experience and years of being immersed in the findings of natural hormone research. The information she presents is based on studies by MD's, as well other noted authorities. She also lists resources to assist women in correcting deficiencies that occur before, during, and after menopause, using natural means and botanical hormone replacement therapy.

The book takes a look at circumventing osteoporosis, the risk of cancer, progesterone deficiency, estrogen, hormones from food sources, anemia, cholesterol, miscarriages, and more.

It's a woman's "mini-bible" as it addresses most of the concerns for the health of our body as women -- synthetic vs. natural; breast cancer; menopause; and various other "female-related" physical challenges.

The appendix section offers addresses for sources of natural progesterone, a recommended reading list, resources for cancer patients, and ways (and comparisons) in applying hormones.

The Estrogen Alternative is a very informative book, helping to give women back the power to make their own decisions without having to depend on a medical doctor to impose decisions that may not be in keeping with the woman's way of life. It's a great book for you as a woman, and it's a great book to give to the women in your life. Power is in knowledge and this book presents a lot of both.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not totally accurate
My mother and I purchased this book and were sorely disappointed.

This book is *not* recommended ... and especially not for vegetarians. Martin and Gerstung (the authors) believe that "substituting soy for milk, cheese, and meat can block the absorption of important nutrients." As though that is not already absurd, the authors go on to state that soy milk is "lacking in needed natural vitamins and cholesterol." Needed cholesterol??? That statement is simply outrageous. The truth is that not only do most people have enough (or even too much) cholesterol in their bodies already, but the human body *manufactures* all the cholesterol it needs. Cholesterol is found in nearly all animal-derived foods, and is absent from all plant-based foods. The consumption of cholesterol is neither necessary nor beneficial for good health.

My recommendation? Try out a book by Dr. Andrew Weil or Dr. Dean Ornish for more accurate information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Preventing & Reversing Arthritis Naturally: The Untold Story
The Estrogen Alternative: Natural Hormone Therapy with Botanical Progesterone and Preventing & Reversing Arthritis Naturally: The Untold Story As an educator in the holistic health field who teaches 200-300 new students each year, I try to keep abreast of the vast number of new books that are constantly barraging the health arena. Every year my students ask me to recommend titles in various areas of holistic health and I need to know which select few in each field are the good ones. As both a Naturopath and Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist in private practice, I like to suggest books to my patients which are both informative, accurate, easy to read, and comprehensively cover their topic. Ever since I first discovered Raquel's book The Estrogen alternative , it has been my first choice for books to educate both students and patients on the topic of alternatives to prescription hormone replacement therapy. Well she's done it again. Her new book on natural therapies for arthritis is fantastic. Somehow, Raquel and her co-author, Dr. Karen Romano, have managed to supply the reader with a very useable amount of information in just about every single subject area related to arthritis. This book is an astounding encyclopedia of useable information and it succeeds in making every other book I have read on arthritis unnecessary. This one book has it all.

I've recently been using a progesterone cream and it changed my life! I had been using estrogen therapies for 2 years and couldn't get my body adjusted. It wasn't until I started with the cream and then read this book that I realized it wasn't just me, it's all of us out there, struggling with this issue. It's the doctors who don't or won't look at this alternative to synthetic hormones who really need to read this book! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good companion for the journey
Since I, too, have struggled with infertility, I was anxious to compare my experience with the author's. And I found I could relate to so many things she said; she has a beautiful way of making a private emotion seem very universal. If you are a Christian asking the tough questions about infertility and treatment options, this is a great book, and a great comfort.

Ginger Garrett is the author of Moments for Couples Who Long for Children.

3-0 out of 5 stars No room for God's power
I read this book at a very low point in my fertility journey. After finishing this book, I felt like the the author left no room for God's power to work through any fertility situation.

I understand that she never conceived, and decided to adopt, but not all of us are there. I still feel that God can bring me a baby, even if I get to be as old as Sarah! I guess I didn't feel the same from this author.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!
This book is a must read for any couple coping with the trial of infertility. I was able to do just what the title said, find God's peace! Chapter by chapter I learned important information, grappled with the hurt and pain and found some of the answers I had been looking for. Now I know that I'm not alone and that others have gone through just what I am, and that there is hope and peace to be found.

The first book to clearly explain this new disorder and offer treatment options

Afflicting an estimated 3 million women in the United States, PMDD is an extreme form of PMS in which the physical and psychological symptoms are often so severe that they strain social, familial, and work relationships to the breaking point. Despite the rapidly growing body of scientific research into its causes and cures, PMDD continues to be a bone of contention among medical professionals, and many women who suffer from it are still told that it's all in their heads. The first consumer book written on this condition and authored by a nationally respected expert on the treatment of this condition, The PMDD Phenomenon:

  • Helps readers determine whether they have PMDD
  • Explains the full spectrum of prescription and nonprescription drug therapies
  • Covers major alternative treatments
  • Features inspiring and informative case studies of women who have battled PMDD

Book Description

Heralded as the catalyst of the sexual revolution and the solution toglobal overpopulation, the contraceptive pill was one of the twentieth century's mostimportant inventions. It has not only transformed the lives of millions of women but hasalso pushed the limits of drug monitoring and regulation across the world. This deeply- researched new history of the oral contraceptive shows how its development and use haveraised crucial questions about the relationship between science, medicine, technology,and society.

Lara Marks traces the scientific origins of the pill to Europe and Mexico in the earlyyears of the twentieth century, challenging previous accounts that championed it as aNorth American product. She explores the reasons why the pill took so long to bedeveloped and explains why it did not prove to be the social panacea envisioned by itsinventors. Unacceptable to the Catholic Church, rejected by countries such as India andJapan, too expensive for women in poor countries, it has, more recently, been linked tocardiovascular problems. Reviewing the positive effects of the pill, Marks shows how ithas been transformed from a tool for the prevention of conception to a major weapon inthe fight against cancer. ... Read more

Book Description

On a September morning in 1973, a hospital administrator in New York City learned of a rogue experiment in progress at his institution, and he ordered the removal from an incubator of a test tube containing a frothy mixture of human eggs and sperm. Had the experiment been allowed to continue, it might have resulted in the first human fetus created through in vitro fertilization.
In Pandora"s Baby, the award-winning journalist Robin Marantz Henig tells the story of that confrontation, which ushered in a new era in reproductive technology. She takes us back to the early days of IVF, when the procedure was viewed as crackpot science and its pioneers as outsiders in the medical world. Henig lays out the ethical and political battlefield of the 1970s -- a battlefield that is recreated with each new technology -- and traces the sea change that has occurred in the public perception of"test tube babies."
It is a human story, of men and women grappling with the moral implications of a scientific discovery: researchers, couples yearning for babies, hospital administrators, and bioethicists. Through these people Henig brings to life the argument made most forcefully against IVF in the early days: that it was the first step down the slippery slope toward genetic engineering, designer babies, and human clones. Even though this argument is worrisome and antiprogressive, Henig says, many of its most scary prophecies seem to be coming true.
Pandora"s Baby is a compelling story from the not-so-distant past that brilliantly presents the scientific and ethical dilemmas we confront ever more starkly as germ-line engineering and human cloning become possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars A delightful guide through a bioethical thicket
Adjectives like "judicious" and "level headed" (see the Publisher's Weekly review) don't do justice to this lively and probing and timely book. Henig has the gift of conveying complex scientific information painlessly and the stories she tells are riveting, full of hubris, lawsuits,medical cowboys, desperate would-be parents, nutty fundamentalists (in one protest at an in-vitro clinic, they carried a sign that read "Incest in a Test Tube") and, of course, politics. If you've been following the debate over stem cell research, cloning or the work of the President's commission on bioethics ( its chairman,Leon Kass, appears in this book as an early opponent of IVF ) Pandora's Baby is invaluable. And if you haven't been following, this is a great place to start.
