    Very Healing for Females with Weight or Abuse Issues!

    This book is a great tool not only for women who desire to shed unwanted extra pounds, but for women who have experienced any form of abuse (especially sexual abuse during childhood) as well. So, even if you are not significantly overweight, you may find yourself interested in this book anyway. It provides many case studies outlining how and why women retain extra weight because of emotional issues, and gives many practical and spiritual ways to lose the weight. Simply reading the book can help you lose weight and heal from old abuse issues, whether you consciously remember the abuse or not. The information in this book will help you to better understand your relationship with food, your body, and yourself, and heal yourself in a practical, easy-does-it approach, with spiritual and metaphysical applications that take you beyond conventional therapy approaches. You may be quite surprised with some of the insights that come to you about yourself and your life as you work with this book. Highly recommended!
