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.
