The editors of forthcoming book volume titled Holistic Approaches for Sustainable Women’s Health: From Preconception to Deathunder the book series titled “Innovations in Plant Science for Better Health: From Soil to Fork” are pleased to invite you and members of your working group to submit a chapter for this book, to be published by Taylor & Francis (Apple Academic Press Inc. – USA). The objective of this book is to offer global initiatives to promote women’s health that is directed at enhancing sexual and reproductive health. However, over the past few decades, there have been considerable changes in the worldwide burden of diseases. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs: particularly cardiovascular diseases, malignancies, respiratory diseases, diabetes, dementia, depression, and musculoskeletal disorders, etc.) currently account for most deaths and disabilities among women. Therefore, appropriate funding must be set aside for the prevention, management, and treatment of NCDs in women to enhance women’s health as effectively as possible. Such a strategy has the potential to lessen the impact of NCDs on women while simultaneously enhancing their sexual and reproductive health, which frequently has similar behavioral, biological, social, and cultural risk factors. In the past, men were the subjects of most of the medical research, and it was believed that women might also benefit from the outcomes of these studies. As a result, gender disparities in health and disease and sexual differences have long gone unrecognized or disregarded. Women are participating in research at a higher rate now, and there is evidence that there are clinically significant disparities between men and women in all aspects of health and diseases.

The overall objective of this book is to compile research findings/ achievements/ knowledge/ case studies from leading researchers who are focusing on the regulatory oversight background, female health issues and role of herbs/natural medicines and meditation in female health. We also highlight safety concerns, especially for Mamma cancer, Ovarian cancer, Vaginal health, PCOS and their herbal prescription medications. Finally, the measures necessary to female health related issues are also presented.
