A comprehensive overview of how complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and traditional medicine (TM) affect women's reproductive health, this volume brings together a diverse collection of perspectives from the field to explore the role of CAM and TM across cultures. Providing a detailed analysis, authors address the cultural values and medicinal uses of CAM and TM for reproductive health among women in different sociocultural environments and geographic settings. Maria Costanza Torri and Jennie Hornosty's edited collection explores how traditional practices can improve the well-being of women and highlights the differences and complementarities between traditional medicine and biomedicine. Accessible and pedagogically rich, this is a crucial contribution to medical anthropology, sociology of health and medicine, women's health, public health, and health policy.
