reviewed in retrospect July 2009:

I had a health scare in 2007. It was horrible. My body was constantly in pain. I had been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (cystitis means a bladder infection, but interstitial cystitis means that there is no infection present, jst all the pain and symmptoms.)

When I read this book, I realized that my health problems that could be traced back almost 2 years. I had several respitory infections that triggered my asthma, that were treated with anti biotics and...more
Very interesting information about how foods effect the body. After dealing with constant fatigue and just an overall sense of blah, I'm almost positive I have a yeast condition. There is a quiz in Chapter 2 that will help you determine if you are suffering from excess yeast. A score of 180 or above means you are extremely likely to be suffering from yeast overgrowth. I scored a 250. Yikes! I plan on using the suggestions and following the candida diet the book suggests. I highly recommend this...more

Women-centric distillation and compilation of Dr. Crook's other writings on yeast minus most of the drawings present in the earlier books. It's fairly updated and has plenty of footnotes and other resources that readers can explore.
I also liked this more in depth book by William Crook. This one delves into the woman's body specifically in its relationship with this awful fungus called candida. As I have had much pain and symptoms that relate to my hormonal cycle, the book helped me to connect all that is going on in my body together.

Excellent, highly informative and readable guide to dealing with systemic yeast infections. One of the author's virtues is his flexible attitude and his repeated statements that the condition and treatment vary from person to person--something many doctors deny or ignore about diseases.

This book is informative but I'm not sure it is believable. Most people have yeast in their system and that is normal. My GI doctor said not to follow this. I believe him and my sister in law. There is not medical proof behind this book.
Excellent resource if you suffer from recurring yeast infections, or if you have other symptoms that are unexplained. Anyone with IBS would benefit, because most likely it's a yeast overgrowth.
If even some of it is true, it was worth reading. Could change a great deal in terms of diet, supplements, etc.
