There is lots of information out there, especially when it comes to women’s health, it can be overwhelming. But on the flip side, there is a lot of crucial information that women need to be educated on, that they’re not. In honor of Women’s Month, below are the top 4 books that I think every woman should have on her bookshelf.
- Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom by Christiane Northrup, M.D. – As a woman, I consider this my bible to
health. She covers SO much crucial information to women throughout this book. From food, anatomy, breast health, fertility/pregnancy and birthing, menopause, healing and much more, it’s something that every woman should have on her bookshelf for reference.
- The Hormone Cure by Sara Gottfried, M.D. – This is a groundbreaking book that demonstrates how balancing your hormones can cure underlying health issues and result in restored sleep, greater energy, improved mood, easy weight loss, increased productivity, and many more benefits. I love how she breaks it all down and offers manageable ways to make changes to your hormone health.
- Woman Code by Alisa Vitti– Holistic Health Coach Alisa Vitti shows women how to maintain health and vitality with a food-based program to rebalance their hormones. She found herself suffering through the symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and was able to heal herself through food and lifestyle changes. Whether you are suffering from irregular periods, fertility issues, depression, or lack of sex drive, Alisa says that meds and anti-depressants aren’t the only solutions. Ever since this book, and Alisa’s app, MyFlo, my (hormone) life has changed for the better!
- Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler– Since the publication of this book two decades ago, Toni Weschler has taught a whole new generation of women how to become pregnant, avoid pregnancy naturally and gain better control of their gynecological and sexual health by taking just a couple minutes a day using the proven Fertility Awareness Method. Clear and comprehensive, yet warm and approachable (I thought even humorous at times!), Taking Charge of Your Fertility is one of the most universally lauded health books on the market today. It is an essential reference for every woman of reproductive age.
