Pregnancy (preventing or achieving it) is a crucial issue in every woman's life; The Garden of Fertility provides an avenue for women to know their own bodies, and when they can and cannot conceive. I highly recommend that every doctor read this book before beginning to practice medicine; and that every woman read it before choosing a method of birth control, before trying to conceive a child, before going to a doctor for a gynecological exam

Kudos to Katie Singer for her wonderful contribution to women's health. I'm delighted to recommend her book as a companion to mine, because she captures the beauty and power of Fertility Awareness, and the profound ways in which it has changed so many women's lives.

The Garden of Fertility bridges the facts of biology with feminine powers of daily observation. It encourages each of us to know how our reproductive systems work, and to use them well. It is an icon for medicine in the new century.

Katie Singer has read widely and deeply. She offers this thoughtful, clear, informative discussion of Fertility Awareness in all of its ramifications, linking our personal health and womanly cycles to the greater world around us. Her book provides a basis for self-knowledge that enables us to understand our menstrual cycles and choose health care wisely.

This book's chapter on Food & Reproductive Health succinctly presents the nutritional keys to creating regular, ovulatory cycles that are free from PMS, PCOS, progesterone deficiency, thyroid and other gynecological problems--and that will ensure easy pregnancies and healthy children when they're desired. The keys that Katie Singer presents are the ones Dr. Weston A. Price discovered nearly a century ago in his remarkable studies of healthy, nonindustrialized peoples. At last, this information is available for contemporary women (and men) who want to create strong reproductive health through diet!

This outstanding book teaches you how to interpret your menstrual cycle's signals and how to gauge your gynecological health, how to determine when you are fertile and infertile each month, what you can do at home to avoid or heal common problems, and what different health care systems provide when you need help. Katie Singer has done a brilliant job of integrating these complex subjects into one volume that is as delightful to read as it is comprehensive. If every woman read this book, I imagine that health care would be profoundly changed.
