Whole WomanŽ - Your Journey from Hope to Evidence to Healing

I'm Christine Kent, founder of Whole Woman.

I don't practice medicine. What I do is study and report to you what I find in the medical and biological  research, that your doctor is very unlikely to read and wouldn't be allowed to act on it if he or she did read it. 

Knowledge Not Accessible to Most Women

I use what I learn from the laboratory research studies to help women avoid the drugs and surgeries my studies have shown to be defective, misguided, and even contraindicated despite often being common practice in the doctors' offices.

For example, it took me many years of research to crack the code on prolapse. The information I bring to women has kept thousands out of the operating room. I spent fifteen months studying chronic hip pain and have helped thousands avoid hip surgery. Studying medical research is what I do and what it provides me (and you) with is a far more accurate and complete picture of what actually works and doesn't work in medicine. 

Medicine is a Business

The reason is simple. You and your doctor have an economic conflict of interest. He/she wants to maximize revenue and minimize cost. The "Standards of Care" doctors are required to follow are designed to accomplish both - making sure they spend maximum time in the operating room and keeping the drug companies happy.

I, on the other hand, have only one objective - to provide you with the most accurate and current medical knowledge so you can make the best decisions for your own health and self-care.

How I Can Help

So if you or a woman you care for is struggling with - 

  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Vaginal and vulva health
  • Urinary incontinence, UTIs or other bladder challenges
  • Chronic hip pain
  • Chronic knee pain
  • Post-hysterectomy challenges your doctor never warned you about

 …or other common women’s health challenges, you've come to the right place.

For More Than 20 Years...

Since 2003 through my company Whole WomanŽ, I have been helping women overcome the fear and anxiety that often accompany common pelvic symptoms, while  giving them the tools and resources they need to help stabilize and reverse their conditions.

Self-Care versus Medical Care

Whole Woman follows the principles of self-care, which are inextricably connected with caring for others and caring for the planet.

  • Your own body is the ultimate source of wisdom of what it needs and wants
  • Our bodies are constantly trying to communicate with us
  • Our bodies don't have words so we don't recognize what our bodies are trying to tell us
  • Symptoms are the language of the body
  • The sole function of symptoms is to point to root causes
  • Successfully address the root cause and the symptom disappears on its own
  • Natural foods and herbs harmonize with the complexity of our hormones, nervous system, and genetics
  • Nature provides us with the medicines we need for optimal health
  • How I breathe, sit, stand and move in the world make the difference between vitality and musculoskeletal dysfunction
  • Love, patience, and forgiveness are intrinsic to the human evolutionary path
  • Living well and dying well co-exist along the self-care continuum.

My Whole Woman work has kept thousands of women out of the operating room and leading full physically and sexually active lives in over sixty countries.

We have trained and certified Whole Woman Practitioners throughout the US, and in Canada, Ireland, the UK, Belgium, Germany, Ghana, and Australia.

A few of the professional endorsements my work has received...

Saving the Whole Woman is a breath of fresh air for thousands of women who have been diagnosed with uterine, bladder, or rectal prolapse. In truth, every woman should know the information in this book to help preserve her innate pelvic power.

Christiane Northrup, MD
Author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

After over 36 years as an occupational therapist, I had an acute prolapse including difficulty with elimination. I greatly benefitted from Christine’s exercises in only one session at The Whole Woman™ Center. Her book is very thorough anatomically, practical and honest about a very real problem to untold women. The sensible self-help instruction and lifestyle ideas are extremely helpful.

As a former gynecologic surgeon who came to see the error his ways, I passionately read ‘Saving the Whole Woman’.  Christine’s work is medically accurate and will bring hope to millions of women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse and who want to avoid surgery.  I hope mothers will share this work with their daughters to help them avoid the kind of childbirth experience that sets them up for problems later in life.

Michel Odent, MD
Author of Primal Health and The Caesarean Director, Primal Health Research Center, London

Saving the Whole Woman is a one of a kind book. It provides natural, helpful solutions for women and takes away the stigma often associated with pelvic floor problems. The original research in this book could be lifesaving.

Peggy O’Mara
Editor and Publisher Mothering Magazine

Saving the Whole Woman is a scathing account of the way the medical field uses and abuses women’s bodies with regard to surgeries and procedures on the pelvic floor. These medical procedures parallel the mistreatment of women’s bodies in the childbearing year, and in both cases money is often the motivating factor. Christine gives us hope by teaching us about our bodies and how we can prevent or solve problems without medical intervention. Give a copy to every woman you know, old or young.

Empowering women with accurate knowledge allows them to make informed decisions regarding their healthcare. For those women who are contemplating urogynecological surgery and for those healthcare practitioners who are advising these women, this new edition of Christine Kent’s Saving the Whole Woman is an essential read. The evidence is substantial; restoring optimal posture and muscle function can prevent and reduce most pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. Surgery should not be your first treatment choice.

Christine Ann Kent is on a mission to expose the continuing tragedy of surgical mismanagement of pelvic problems. Her exhaustive and scholarly chronicle of the attempts to improve on female anatomy sends a serious warning: Avoid unnecessary or questionable surgery! Her detailed holistic approach to maintaining and restoring pelvic health reframes perceptions of female anatomy from “faulty” to “wondrous,” and gives women the key to their own pelvic well-being.

As a surgeon who became enlightened to natural health, I recommend avoiding surgery for the treatment of chronic disorders if there are natural approaches that work just as well, if not better. Christine Kent has made a major contribution to women by compiling a comprehensive research-supported natural approach to the common problems of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. Any woman ready to take charge of her health needs to read this book!

The decision to undergo surgery of any kind is often difficult, so it is often useful to explore other alternatives before moving forward. In Saving the Whole Woman, Christine Kent provides a perspective of other options available to women who have been recommended to undergo pelvic surgery. This book may anger some and empower others.

 Christine Kent has written a definitive book on the holistic approach to pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence for women. She exposes the risks and failures of surgical therapies and gives women alternatives in managing these issues and regaining a sense of their whole beings. Thank you Christine!

Lee Lipsenthal, M.D.
President, The American Board of Holistic Medicine

Every woman deserves and needs to know the vital information Christine has amassed in this book.

Elizabeth Plourde

I believe in the importance and the bravery of this book and hope that it will save women’s lives and sanity.

Phyllis Chesler, Ph.d.
Author, Women and Madness and Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman

 Women, especially around the time of menopause, are too often advised to have major gynecological surgery for minor conditions that can be significantly improved with natural alternatives. In Saving the Whole Woman, Christine Kent has made an important contribution to women’s health literature by recounting her own story of unnecessary surgery and its effect upon her life. Her research of the medical information on pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence is accurately and clearly presented and can serve as a warning to other women. Her critique of the lack of oversight or scientifically-based criteria for such surgery should be read by every woman and provider of women’s health care.
