Rushing Woman’s Syndrome describes the biochemical and emotional effects of constantly being in a rush and the health consequences that urgency elicits.
This book was inspired by Dr Libby’s clinical experiences and her empathy for women and the many roles they now juggle. Never before had Dr Libby witnessed so many women in a hurry to do everything and be all things to all people. She observed that the relentless rush was leaving women feeling tired but wired, with hormone-based health challenges such as infertility, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome and a debilitating monthly menstruation or menopause.
It doesn’t seem to matter if a woman has two things to do in her day or two hundred, she is in a pressing rush to do it all and she very rarely feels like she is in control or gets on top of things. In fact her deep desire to control even the smaller details of life can leave her feeling out of control; even of herself. Overwhelmed, at times she feels like she can’t cope, whether she admits it out loud or keeps it all inside, adding to her wound up, knotted stomach. She is fortunate if her sex hormones are balanced but most women in this state suffer terribly with their periods and women who go into menopause in this state usually find it debilitating.
Dr Libby combines decades of experience and her unique conversational style to offer you real solutions to both the biochemistry and the emotional patterns of the rush.
