Here in my seeming stressful life, this book was a great help as I searched to find out why I was having breakdowns: women suffer from the TRIPLE WHAMMY of:

1) stress
2) low serotonin
3) shifting female hormones.

These three things together cause women to feel either

apathy (overwhelmed, no energy to do anything)
- or -
anxious (stressed out!

(Yup, those are my two emotions most of the time!)

So, how to treat the triple whammy:

1) develop healthy strategies to deal with stress (communication, call
This was really accessible and an enjoyable read. I've been implementing some of the advice, and so far so good. I appreciate that the authors are respectful to both "conventional" and alternative medicine, and the book was presented in a logical way.

The only bone I have to pick is that the authors rely on gender stereotypes about ancient hunter-gathers; that is, women stayed inside raising children while men went out to hunt and gather to explain the differences in men's and women's brain chem
Can you tell where I've been lately? A great stress handbook specifically for women. Trained in Western medicine, but open to holistic healing, this guy has great insight and advice. His steps are relatively straight-forward and focus mostly on raising serotonin levels- a few supplements, 20-minute daily walks, and a selection of stress relievers. I especially appreciated the concise explanation of the whole candida debate.
Good explanations of why women's bodies break down from stress. I like that Dr. Edelberg started a holistic practice when he found alternative treatments working for himself and his patients. I like that he includes some alternative treatments like Reiki and guided imagery. This book was recommended to me by Suzanne Fraker, a Colorsound/Colorpuncture practitioner.
This book said that chronic stress, low seratonin and fluctuating hormones are the root cause of some women feeling crummy alot of the time. I agree with much of what it said, but like other health/diet books, it requires quite a bit more than I'm willing to give to achieve the 'cure' right now.
Hormones, stress, serotonin...oh my. Very worthwhile read if you are a woman or know a woman.
