resource into women's bodies (not in a dirty way)

Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom: Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing by Christine Northrup, M.D. is an excellent reference for ALL women. This book came out last month, but it was first published in 1994. It is a revised and updated version, which is great because a lot has happened in the medical field in the past fifteen years.

There is a lot of focus on how mental health can effect physical health. I completely agree with this concept. Your brain is the center control of everything, it makes sense that your mind set can have positive and negative effects on your body. This is just one of the many examples included, there are real life stories about actual women going through what Northrup is trying to show us. She covers sexuality, spirituality, birth, vitamins, and life saving facts that every woman should know.

I think the main idea of this resource is to make you stop and think. Think about yourself, your body, and your health. Many women put themselves on the back burner because of jobs, family and other relationships. Your family and friends will enjoy you more when you are healthy and less stressed about your health. Think about it.
