Banyen's Description: 

Most women can juggle the kids, the office, and the kitchen renovation all at once—while most men prefer to concentrate on one thing at a time—because women naturally have more connections than men do between their right and left brains, allowing them to divide their attention and multitask. Yet this mental ability to deal with multiple pressures and demands comes at a cost. Indeed, women today have more problems with low moods and depression, anxiety and fears, attention and memory than women of just a few generations ago—and markedly more than men.

In this groundbreaking new book, the first to focus on the unique strengths and innate genius of women’s brains, psychiatrist, brain scientist, and medical intuitive Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz shows you that your feminine brain today is not your grandmother’s brain: it’s dramatically different from the traditional female brain of your ancestors—and also quite different from a traditional man’s brain. The New Feminine Brain explains how women of all ages can protect their hormonally sensitive brains from stress; shore up their moods, self-confidence, focus, and memory; and heal many emotional and physical problems. It also provides important health information for using and improving your intuition—a fast form of intelligence that traditionally has been considered more readily accessible to women than men.

Dr. Schulz makes brain science both engaging and accessible as she combines scientific research, patients’ stories from her clinical practice, and personal stories of her work and life as a psychiatrist and a medical intuitive—identities she learned to merge in order to better understand her own brain—to help women more fully appreciate their own distinctive abilities. Questionnaires and quizzes throughout the book allow you to understand how your brain is wired, and guide you in rewiring and bolstering any connections that need it, with mental exercises, nutritional supplements, and the latest information on medications. Schulz leads you on a fascinating, personalized journey of self-discovery and healing.

“She’s hilariously funny, with the rare ability to take complex material and make it seem perfectly simple. Her insights on the brain are brilliant. Her insights on life are remarkable. This is a book that every woman should read—a book for our times.” —Joan Borysenko, author of Inner Peace for Busy Women

Also by Mona Lisa Schulz is Awakening Intuition.

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Ever wonder why most women can handle the kids and careers and the renovation but men can concentrate on either the newspaper or a game on TV? This is because female brains have more interconnections that allow them to multi-task and split their attention. The New Feminine Brain is the first book by a medical doctor, who is also a psychiatrist and a brain expert, to show how modern life challenges are physically rewiring the brain and to address the particular challenges that women face as a result. The female brain today is not your grandmother's brain - it has even more connections and skills, but with that can come more physical problems, including an increase in attention and memory deficits and chronic mood and health conditions.

The New Feminine Brain combines the insights of Dr Schulz's research and stories of clinical experience as a neuropsychiatrist treating people with tough brain disorders with unique self-help and expert health advice. Readers will discover and cultivate their special genius and intuitive style with provocative self-tests, so they can hear and heal their depression, anxiety, attention, memory, and other brain problems. 'Rewiring' exercises, herbs and nutritional supplements will improve their physical, psychological and emotional health.
