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 health legacy
  • 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. Download and start listening now!

      " A very insightful look at many different health aspects and links between Mothers and daughters. It was amazingly accurate both physically and emotionally. In so many instances I could relate. Sometimes she was a little too far 'out there', but overall I liked it.

      " This book was probably the best I have read (besides Mona Lisa Schultz) on mind body medicine. It allowed me to get some insight on what is going on with my daughters and made me think of ways to nurture them to become caring and healthy adults. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosanne | 2/10/2009

      " Groundbreaking, informative exploration of women's roles that soars when providing medical insights. Northrup repeatedly exposes culturally damaging myths about women's roles and health. Provocative, but dismaying when conjectures are presented as conclusions. "
