|Summary, etc.:|| As women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem. To succeed in life, we are told, we must have it all under control: we have to tamp down our inherent shifts in favor of a more static way of being. But our bodies are wiser than we imagine. Moods are not an annoyance to be stuffed away, they are a finely-tuned feedback system that can tell us how best to manage our lives. Over-prescribed medications can have devastating consequences for women in many areas of our lives--and even if we don't pop a pill, women everywhere are numbing their emotions with food, alcohol, and a host of addictive behaviors that deny the wisdom of our bodies and keep us from addressing the real issues that we face. Here, Dr. Julie Holland shares a better way.
