From the Inside Flap
With such groundbreaking bestsellers as "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and "The Wisdom of Menopause, Dr. Christiane Northrup is one of today's most trusted and visionary medical experts. Now she presents her most profound and revolutionary approach to women's health. . . .
The mother-daughter relationship sets the stage for our state of health and well-being for our entire lives. Because our mothers are our first and most powerful female role models, our most deeply ingrained beliefs about ourselves as women come from them. And our behavior in relationships-with food, with our children, with our mates, and with ourselves-is a reflection of those beliefs. Once we understand our mother-daughter bonds, we can rebuild our own health, whatever our age, and create a lasting positive legacy for the next generation.
"Mother-Daughter Wisdom introduces an entirely new map of female development, exploring the "five facets of feminine power," which range from the basics of physical self-care to the discovery of passion and purpose in life. This blueprint allows any woman-whether or" not she has children"-to repair the gaps in her own upbringing and create a better adult relationship with her mother. If she has her own daughter, it will help her be the mother she has always wanted to be.
Drawing on patient case histories and personal experiences, Dr. Northrup also presents findings at the cutting edge of medicine and psychology. Discover:
How to lay the nutritional foundation to prevent eating disorders and adult diseases
The truth about the immunization controversy-and the true meaning of immunity
How we can change our genetic healthlegacy
Why financial literacy is essential to women's health
How to foster healthy sexuality and future "love maps" in our daughters
How to balance independence with caring, and individual growth with family ties
Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and rare intelligence, "Mother-Daughter Wisdom is an indispensable book destined to change lives and become essential reading for all women.

Also worth reading is the 'Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom' by the same author, whose wisdom and insight is what prompted me to buy this book too.
When I first opened it, I thought it looked great - right up my street. She talks about the spiritual side of parenting in the introduction, and about how patterns can be repeated through the generations, particularly along matrilineal lines. I know this to be true not just from looking at my own family, but those of my friends as well. I loved the idea of a book about parenting that took this rather esoteric idea seriously.
I also liked her analogy of a woman's life being a series of rooms in a house, moving up towards the attic. I can see quite clearly that the ancient ideas that women's lives have stages that match something around seven years each are accurate.
However, the book then went down-hill when I turned to chapter one only to have to plough through a whole load of information about pre-conceptual care. Why on earth any woman buying this book is likely to need this information is beyond me. If you're at the stage of wanting to conceive (ie. when the information would be helpful), you don't yet have a daughter (or not this one you want to conceive anyway!) so probably won't have picked up a book about having daughters. If you already have daughters then the information is entirely irrelevant.Read more ›
This is a rich, inspiring and helpful book - and I recommend it unreservedly to all women. Premised on the mother-daughter relationship it offers a broad template for creating compassionate understanding, health and self-esteem regardless of age and personal history.
Dr Northrup writes in an easy conversational style, without too much medical jargon, nor is it overly sentimental - though grounded in metaphysical principles such as forgiveness and references to subtle anatomy - chakras and kundalini.
It amply demonstrates the value and benefit of recontextualising western notions of health, sickness and development within a wider field of understanding that includes spiritual and new age thought.
Personal anecdotes from the author and her clients illuminate and are conciseT and pertinent, the book is well structure and a hefty tome, you will develop your wrist strength, so you get a lot for your money.
This would make an ideal gift for women at any age, as it offers support and guidance through all life stages.
