The Keywords are “Be Good to Yourself”!

 I loved this book, even more than I loved Christiane Northrup’s book on Menopause and that’s a stretch because there was so much important information in that book. Ditto with this one. I did watch her PBS special where she outlined the book before a television audience after I had read the first few chapters. Fortunately, since I had the book, it wasn’t necessary for me to take notes during the presentation as I knew the references to books, authors and websites would be covered in the book. 

What a read, a streetlight for going forward in this Century. The good Doctor presents a paradigm shift for the inevitable ‘if you don’t die syndrome’… I won’t name various choices, but you know phrases that have the word ‘age’ in them. For Women, and she does include men here and there, this is a book for women because where we are now, we’ve never been before and we could use a few guideposts along the way to help us navigate this new world. We could say 70 is the new 50 but you get the idea.

As her previous books have revealed, Dr. Northrup embraces both the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our biological processes (Menopause and Age) and she’s not bemoaning any of it. She’s not locked into testing this and that to prevent some disease or other and she’s not suggesting you just play cards with the folks at the senior center. She is inspiring us to Greatness! Great Lives, adventure, creativity, pleasure and with those comes the big one, Health!

From the esoteric to the practical, she covers seeking pleasure on a daily basis to getting your sugar number. She covers diet but she also covers daily movement, and not necessarily an exercise plan.

I did receive a free copy of this book from Hay House Publishing in order to write this review. I received no monetary compensation and was not obligated to make it a positive review. I was simply asked to give my honest opinion which I have done.
