It often feels chaotic rather than dynamic being a woman. Every day is different. Am I a size 10 today, or a size 14? Do I feel energised or do I feel like crawling under the duvet and watching Eastenders? Even our interest in sex bobs about, seemingly from minute to minute. And we mentally cross off the days when our hormones are in flux - chalking our bad moods up to PMS and waiting impatiently for our bodies to return to 'normal'. But if we are not 'ourselves' for so much of our lives, then who are we? In Consciously Female, Tracey Gaudet gives women the tools and the techniques to consciously reframe what it means to live inside a woman's body. So instead of crossing off the days we feel bad, we will learn to understand them as part of an important cycle which adds emotion and physical feeling to our lives - we will become 'consciously female'. Integrating conventional and alternative medicine, the book provides us with a complete wellness programme, including advice on nutrition, exercise, rituals and mind-body techniques. It's wonderfully positive, practical and inspirational - it's for every woman.

A unique book that will help every woman feel comfortable with her bodyFrom the Back Cover:
This book should be read by every woman...
How often do women say 'I'm not myself today' and chalk a bad mood up to PMS or the menopause or post-natal blues? How often do we mentally cross off days and weeks at a time, waiting to return to 'normal'?
What if instead of feeling helplessly buffeted by hormone storms, women could learn to use those storms as a source of strength? What if instead of being floored by PMS, we could learn to use it to our advantage? What if instead of secretly denouncing our femaleness we chose to celebrate it? What if we became consciously female?
In this groundbreaking book, Dr Tracy Gaudet offers the tools and techniques to become Consciously Female. Through sound and sympathetic medical information, with advice on nutrition, exercise, rituals and mind-body techniques, Gaudet guides you through all the major stages in life, including menstration, contraception, childbirth, miscarriage and menopause, and helps you understand what it really means to live inside a woman's body.
