Bodies Women's Wisdom
Christiane Northrup MD
Would you have not, as a young
girl, had this "sex talk" with your mother?"At a certain point in your
life, you will have a menstrual period. This is an opportunity to examine
your creative impulses and needs and a time for deep emotional reflection"
There is so very much to this book (it is HUGE) I can't do it justice here.
If you're at all leary, I taped the videos from the pledge drive, and will
ship them to you so you can see what the book is about. I can't recommend
it enough and wish that upon birth, each girl was presented with a copy
of this book. [Review by mamakat]
|| I was very skeptical
of this book - I saw it "advertised" on a PBS pledge drive. I figured that
the fact that it was written by an OB (albeit female) only served to increase
my distrust. Luckilly I was sick in bed and couldn't find the clicker.
A video "Womens Minds Womens Choices" (or something like that) came on
and I was hooked. Not only does this book discuss menstruation, FAM (but
Taking Charge of Your Fertility is better), menstruation, fibriods,
etc, but the discussion is completely all encompassing. Pregnancy and birth
is best left out of the hospital; fibroids are "learning experiences";
menopause is the height of creativity; menstruation gives us an opportunity
on a monthly basis to examine items usually hidden and mimics the seasons
of the year.
