Are you tired? Do you suffer from chronic pain—headaches, backaches, or other chronic discomfort? Do you get depressed or anxious? Do you have allergies, rashes, or autoimmune issues? Have you lost your zest for life somewhere along the way? If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may be suffering from a condition that Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams calls Chronic Body Depletion. The condition can be related to weight gain, high blood pressure, exhaustion, and many other symptoms that leave the body drained. In BODYWISE: Discovering Your Body’s Intelligence for Lifelong Health and Healing, Dr. Rachel shows readers not only how to recognize and treat the symptoms that plague them, but also offers strategies for optimum health and lifelong healing.
In BODYWISE, Dr. Rachel explains how these symptoms, uncomfortable as they may be, are a sign of our body’s intelligence. Our bodies are trying to communicate with us, but we have lost the tools to listen. As a result, we risk prolonged suffering, illness, and even premature death. BODYWISE presents an integrative approach that balances conventional medicine, wellness practices, and your own intuition to heal your body physically and emotionally. The book teaches women to understand the natural wisdom of the body, and to cultivate body intelligence in the five fundamental areas of overall health: eating, sleeping, moving, loving, and finding purpose. The book concludes with a practical and personal 28-day plan to heal your life and become bodywise.
Written with the wisdom of a top physician but the warmth and humor of a girlfriend, BODYWISE is a fascinating and life-changing work that delivers hope, knowledge, and new strategies for staying healthy while doing it all.
