The New Feminine Brain: Developing Your Intuitive Genius Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking new book, the first to focus on the unique strengths and innate genius of women's brains, Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz reveals how the feminine brain today is dramatically different from your ancestors'. And she explains how women of all ages can protect their hormonally sensitive brains from stress; shore up their moods, self-confidence, focus, and memory; and heal a host of emotional and physical problems. She also provides important health information for using and improving your intuition — a fast form of intelligence — to help balance mind and body for better health, better relationships, and an overall better life.

Women naturally have more connections than men between their right and left brains, which allows them to multitask, dividing their attention among many demands. Yet this mental ability also has a cost: Stress changes the brain physically and triggers bodily symptoms. Women today have markedly more problems with low moods and depression, anxiety and fears, attention and memory than women of just a few generations ago — and markedly more than men.

Scientific research, patient stories, questionnaires, mental exercises, nutritional supplements, and the latest information on medications appear throughout the book to help you rewire your brain where necessary to make it the best it can be. With Dr. Schulz's help, you will gain a better appreciation of your intuition and the amazing strengths of your new feminine brain.

Synopsis:

Ever wonder why most women can handle the kids and careers and the renovation but men can concentrate on either the newspaper or a game on TV? This is because female brains have more interconnections that allow them to multi-task and split their attention. andlt;iandgt;The New Feminine Brainandlt;/iandgt; is the first book by a medical doctor, who is also a psychiatrist and a brain expert, to show how modern life challenges are physically rewiring the brain and to address the particular challenges that women face as a result. The female brain today is not your grandmother's brain - it has even more connections and skills, but with that can come more physical problems, including an increase in attention and memory deficits and chronic mood and health conditions. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;iandgt;The New Feminine Brainandlt;/iandgt; combines the insights of Dr Schulz's research and stories of clinical experience as a neuropsychiatrist treating people with tough brain disorders with unique self-help and expert health advice. Readers will discover and cultivate their special genius and intuitive style with provocative self-tests, so they can hear and heal their depression, anxiety, attention, memory, and other brain problems. 'Rewiring' exercises, herbs and nutritional supplements will improve their physical, psychological and emotional health.

Synopsis:

This stunning guide to improving women's physical, psychological, and emotional health takes an exciting look at how the female brain has adapted to today's world.
