Overview

The New Feminine Brain: How Women Can Develop Their Inner Strengths, Genius, and Intuition by Mona Lisa Schulz, Christiane Northup

Ever wonder why most women can juggle the kids, the office, and the kitchen renovation all at once but most men prefer to concentrate on one thing at a time? This is because women naturally have more connections than men do between their right and left brains, allowing them to divide their attention and multitask. Yet this mental ability to deal with multiple pressures and demands can ultimately have both a physical and a mental cost. Stress changes the brain physically and triggers physical symptoms in the body. Indeed, 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.

In this groundbreaking new book, the first to focus on the unique strengths and innate genius of women's brains, psychiatrist, brain scientist, and medical intuitive Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz shows you that your feminine brain today is not your grandmother's brain: it's dramatically different from the traditional female brain of your ancestors — and also quite different from a traditional man's brain. The New Feminine Brain 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. It also provides important health information for using and improving your intuition — a fast form of intelligence that traditionally has been considered more readily accessible to women than men — to help balance mind and body for better health, better relationships, and an overall better life.

Dr. Schulz makes brain science both engaging andaccessible as she combines scientific research, patients' stories from her clinical practice, and personal stories of her work and life as a psychiatrist and a medical intuitive — identities she learned to merge in order to better understand her own brain — to help women more fully appreciate their own distinctive abilities. Questionnaires and quizzes throughout the book allow you to understand how your brain is wired, and guide you in rewiring and bolstering any connections that need it, with mental exercises, nutritional supplements, and the latest information on medications. As she helps you make your brain the best it can be, Dr. Schulz leads you on a fascinating, personalized journey of self-discovery and healing. From it you will gain a better appreciation of your innate genius, your intuition, and the amazing strengths of your new feminine brain.

Women and men have needed this book for a long time. Bravo to Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D. Ph.D., for writing it! The New Feminine Brain: How Women Can Develop Their Inner Strengths, Genius and Intuition, is actually a layman¿s course in neuropsychiatry in that it offers up the science that supports a full understanding of the feminine brain. Women have always known that they are born multi-taskers, that they have a sixth sense and a great sensitivity. Through Schulz¿s findings we discover why: women have more connections between their hormonally sensitive right and left brains. This is their greatest asset and alas, can be their greatest downfall, leaving them vulnerable to illness and stress. Without the care that comes through nutritional needs, mental exercises and an expanded understanding, many women are allowing their brains to adapt to survive in a male-dominated world. And with that adaptation, there is less creativity, physical well-being and joy. I loved this book. It¿s got it all: vitally important insight, solid clinical information, multiple strategies, and did I mention the humour? Schulz is hilarious in tone and sensitivity. If you appreciate the candor of Dr. Christianne Northrup¿s, The Wisdom of the Body, then you¿ll appreciate her dear friend Mona Lisa Schulz. You don¿t have to be female to read and value this optimistic book. It can change the way women and men think.

I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of The New Feminine Brain and the information and prescriptions it contains will helped me live, work and function with far more ease and joy in my life. This is not, despite its title, just a womans book. The New Feminine brain can help anyone live a better life and understand that our difficulties, once understood and integrated into our lives can make us powerful, effective and unique.
