This book offers an overview of the complex interplay between hormonal activation and individual and environmental influences on health and disease in women. The book provides useful information and background material important for treating problems related to the reproductive cycle, eating disorders, drug treatment of women, and clinical and treatment issues in coronary artery disease and breast cancer. This is a medically-oriented book written firstly for the practicing physician in primary care, psychiatry, internal medicine and gynecology/obstetrics. This book takes a much broader view than others on the market by combining consideration of both psychological and physical disorders affecting women and by discussing treatment issues.
