A book with a title like that, written by one of my favorite women’s health mavericks? I’m in! And what a ride! As always, Dr. Christiane Northrup, above all else, speaks from her heart about the power we women have to create the vibrant health that we deserve. Instead of dreading the journey, Dr. Northrup commands us to toss aside the self-defeating messages we receive about aging, menopause, and our value as women as we grow older. Her point is very clear: more than any vitamin or pill, it is our thoughts and our beliefs that dictate our health and vitality. We are all growing older but you don’t have to succumb to negative belief systems that pave the way for memory loss, chronic diseases, and depression.
We have the power of choice. The foods we eat, the people we bring into our circle, the ways we want to move our bodies, and how we express our sexuality. All of these facets play an important role and have a huge impact on our health. Dr. Northrup is a big believer in tapping into our Divine/Creative Source. She shares a great mantra to help us with our heart health:
“Divine Love now manifests in my heart. And now fuels my life.”
I’m doing it everyday — when I wake up and before I go to sleep. It feels good to bookend my day like this!
Mixing her passion for addressing the emotional, mental, and spiritual root causes of so many our physical ailments with the latest research on health and aging, Dr. Northrup creates a rich roadmap. Yes, we are all getting older, but we have the power within all of us to decide how to make this journey. I say let’s go for radiant health and self-empowerment!
