Tired? Overworked? Stressed? Out of balance? Welcome to the twenty-first century, where women’s stress levels have reached unprecedented heights. Between myriad responsibilities, women burn through even the energy gained from sufficient sleep and a healthy diet. The result? Hormonal havoc. In clear, accessible language, internationally renowned doctor Claudia Welch explains hormones from A to Z, specifically how they relate to each other, how and why they become imbalanced, and how women can restore that balance. Welch includes simple diet tips, stress-management techniques, and natural sleep secrets. Using the principles of Ayurveda (popularized in the West by Deepak Chopra) and the holistic sensibility of Dr. Christiane Northrup, Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life gives women the essential tools to achieve the perfect balance between their yin (sex hormones) and yang (stress hormones), and between the body and the mind.
Claudia Welch is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine. She is an author of Eastern medicine and philosophy. She regularly lectures on Women’s Health, and Oriental and Ayurvedic medicines internationally and brings a depth of knowledge and a sense of joy to her presentations. Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life, Dr. Welch’s new book, combines Eastern medical theory with Western science to provide uncommon insights into hormones, women’s health concerns, lifestyle and diet. It is designed to be accessible for all women, and anyone who wants to understand women’s health, whether they are students or practitioners of Western medicine, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, or simply of life. It is not important to have any background in any medical system to appreciate and grok this book, but it also offers new perspectives to seasoned medical practitioners.
