Rosita Arvigo is an amazing woman. Arvigo abdominal therapy is also an amazing therapy.

I ordered this book because of the directions on how to massage your uterus. I had a prolapsed uterus and very painful periods. I started doing the massage every night before going to sleep. It relaxes me immediately and helps me to fall asleep easier. An added bonus is a glowing face next morning. Did it help my painful periods? Well, I can say i no longer need to take painkillers. But was it the massage or the chi kung that I started doing religiously every day? I don't know, but it doesn't really matter since both practices are now part of my routine (the massage I no longer do daily). The final key to conquering my PMS was when I started to water fast the day before the bleeding. After that the pain is so minimal that I only use a hot water bottle if needed. I think the chi kung helps with balancing the hormones and I no longer am moody or have so many crying fits etc. But the mayan massage certainly had a part in my journey towards embracing my menstrual cycle and these days I honour and respect my body's wisdom and feel a deep connection with this special time of month when I can slow down, meditate more, read inspiring books and tune into not only my inner voice, but the voices of the women who lived before me, the voces of my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and all the goddesses and witches of all ages.

Excellent tips, advice, information on and remedies for many of our most ordinary illnesses and diseases! I am following the instructions on how to perform the Maya abdominal massage in this book, and it seems my endometriosis is improving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abdominal massage needs a voice 6 Jun. 2012
By 260days - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I have been looking for the abdominal massage technique form Arvigo for many years. It really was a shame that it took so long to find it. If you are concerned about the health of your uterus or prostate or just health in general, or if you or someone you know is thinking about a hysterectomy, you need this book.

I won't go in to details because it might make some uncomfortable, just try it.

I also deeply love the part that addresses spiritual causes for physical, mental, and emotional health and some things to do about that kind of problem.

I highly recommend this book for the home library. A definite legacy item.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have reference book 16 Jan. 2014
By financial wiper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since my first copy of this somehow disappeared the first week I had it, this is the second copy I have bought in a little over a month. I had to have it for reference as I plan on using many of the remedies. It is the "how-to" companion to the 100 Healing Herbs of Belize by the same author.
5.0 out of 5 stars important contribution to understanding traditional medicine. 29 Mar. 2017

After spending some time in Belize as medical volunteer I started to learn about Mayan beliefs. This is a wonder resource as is her other basic text. I also enjoyed her novels about the culture. I hope to keep learning more about this traditional medicine.

By AIDA K BARNETTE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Used the flu-away remedy and it worked like a charm. Used several others too and they worked very well. I am of Mayan descent and was very happy to find a book holding so many of my family's home-remedies.
5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely written and comprehensive book 16 Oct. 2016
By camille - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nicely written and comprehensive book. Lots of principles and very concise. Unlike many books of this nature Ms Arvigo did not mention too many herbs to make health out of reach and overwhelming. Very simplistic yet replete with the quintessential.
