Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With such groundbreaking bestsellers as Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause, Dr. Christiane Northrup is one of today's most trusted and visionary medical experts. Now she presents her most profound and revolutionary approach to women's health.... Mother-Daughter Wisdom.

The mother-daughter relationship sets the stage for our state of health and well-being for our entire lives. Because our mothers are our first and most powerful female role models, our most deeply ingrained beliefs about ourselves as women come from them. And our behavior in relationships — with food, with our children, with our mates, and with ourselves — is a reflection of those beliefs. Once we understand our mother-daughter bonds, we can rebuild our own health, whatever our age, and create a lasting positive legacy for the next generation.

Mother-Daughter Wisdom introduces an entirely new map of female development, exploring the "five facets of feminine power," which range from the basics of physical self-care to the discovery of passion and purpose in life. This blueprint allows any woman — whether or not she has children — to repair the gaps in her own upbringing and create a better adult relationship with her mother. If she has her own daughter, it will help her be the mother she has always wanted to be.

Drawing on patient case histories and personal experiences, Dr. Northrup also presents findings at the cutting edge of medicine and psychology. Discover:

  • How to lay the nutritional foundation to prevent eating disorders and adult diseases
  • The truth about the immunization controversy — and the true meaning of immunity
  • How we can change our genetic health legacy
  • Why financial literacy is essential to women's health
  • How to foster healthy sexuality and future "love maps" in our daughters
  • How to balance independence with caring, and individual growth with family ties
Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and rare intelligence, Mother-Daughter Wisdom is an indispensable book destined to change lives and become essential reading for all women.

Review:

"The author of the bestselling The Wisdom of Menopause and a certified ob/gyn takes a more expansive look at women's health and how the mother-daughter relationship affects it in this opinionated handbook-cum-memoir. Northrup's philosophy that 'our bodies and our beliefs about them were formed in the soil of our mother's emotions, beliefs, and behaviors' may turn off some readers, while others may take issue with her comment that 'some men fear either they or their wives are inferior if they cannot have a son.' These theories aren't backed up as much by scientific evidence (although in the latter example, Northrup does cite a 1975 study) as by anecdotes from her life as a mother of two daughters and her experiences with her patients. The book's opening section ('the Foundation of Mother-Daughter Health,' i.e., pregnancy) mixes obvious health tips (e.g., don't drink alcohol while pregnant) with more informative ones (e.g., take prenatal vitamins such as beta carotene and folic acid). Northrup seems more comfortable when she moves on to discussing how a mother can most effectively take care of her daughter's emotional and physical health from the ages of three months to 21 years old, and her best and most heartfelt advice is on dealing with teenage daughters. She suggests moms not become their daughters' social directors, and that they hold daughters accountable. Nuggets like these are certainly valuable; it's unfortunate that they're buried in such a massive and uneven outlay of information. Agent, Ned Leavitt. (Mar.) Forecast: TV tie-ins could help this sell well; the book's publication is timed to coincide with a PBS special of the same name, and Northrup has appeared on Oprah."
