About Christine Kent
Christine Kent was 41 years old when she was talked into an unnecessary and destructive bladder suspension surgery, resulting in immediate and profound uterine prolapse. Refusing the hysterectomy she was now told was essential, she spent the next decade trying to understand what had been done to her body, and how she could bring her pelvic organs back into proper alignment.
With degrees in both nursing and anthropology, and realizing her gift for synthesizing massive amounts of medical and scientific information, Christine uncovered much more about gynecology than she had intended. She learned that gynecology and urology have an incorrect understanding of the anatomy of the human pelvis. Eventually she would learn that most gynecologic and urologic treatments for common female pelvic disorders are fraught with risk and failure. Ultimately, she would stabilize and reverse her own surgically-induced uterine prolapse.
In 2003 Christine published her book Saving the Whole Woman - Natural Alternatives to Surgery for Uterine Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence, which was highly endorsed by Christiane Northrup MD, Michel Odent MD, and many other doctors, midwives, and physical therapists. Her website wholewoman.com went live in July of that same year, and Christine began teaching her methods to women of all ages on her online forum. In a matter of weeks women began writing in, “My symptoms are improving!”
Not only were their prolapse and incontinence symptoms improving, but their hip pain was improving as well. Applying her same research methods to the practice of orthopedics, Christine soon realized that orthopedics is at least as dysfunctional as gynecology, and that hundreds of thousands of needless surgeries are being performed every year in the United States for chronic hip pain. Christine now offers comprehensive programs on hip and knee health.
Since that time, Christine has turned her attention toward many additional women’s health disorders, and is currently writing a book on cancer. The concept of First Aid for Women’s Health is meant to encourage women to learn about the anatomy and physiology of their body first, before handing their health over to a deficient and often harmful medical system.
