Review:

Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz reveals the intricate science behind women's intuition in The New Feminine Brain, and shows that while ignoring one's sixth sense can devastate the body, honoring its messages can lead to greater creativity, improved physical well-being, and joy. Coming from the pen of a board certified neuropsychiatrist, neuroscientist and medical intuitive, the topic receives just as much clinical attention as it does the breathe-out-and-tune-in type. Schulz begins with a crash course in neuropsychiatry to illustrate how the female brain's innate adaptability has caused women to literally rewire their thinking for survival in today's (man's) world. Unfortunately, the body doesn't always buy what the new feminine brain is selling. The result can mean disaster to a woman's health. Pinpointing the true source of one's physical aches, infections, diseases, and psychoses requires an honest look within.

Embracing her own Attention Deficit Disorder, Schulz zooms from rich discussions about gender brain wiring to quick patient stories, to questionnaires that help readers learn how their own brains are "wired for mood," "wired for fear," or wired for early senility. It's an interactive ride punctuated by dizzying lists, charts, and checklists that involve frequent page-flipping. Schulz point out that detailed descriptions of prescriptive medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements (complete with dosage recommendations and cautions regarding drug interaction), all include a caveat: simply medicating the body doesn't promise long-term physical and emotional health. Here, intuition must preside. Schulz responds with multiple strategies to help women nurture even the tiniest inner voice, and become their own best medical intuitives.--Liane Thomas

From the Publisher:

"If you’re fortunate, you’ll cross the path of an authentic teacher once or twice in a lifetime. If you’re wise, you’ll jump at the opportunity to learn with him or her. Mona Lisa Schulz is that kind of teacher. And she’s exactly what she writes about: a woman who has found her unique genius and intuition. Furthermore, 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 must for our times."—Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of the New York Times bestseller Minding the Body, Mending the Mind and Inner Peace for Busy Women

"Mona Lisa Schulz applies her unique, intuitive genius to bring us the science underpinning the Feminine. This is a must-read for anyone who seeks balance or hopes to guide others to discover it."—Michael J. Gelb, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci and Discover Your Genius

"At last, someone with medical expertise and wisdom has laid down the genius of feminine power. This book has bridged the body and mind with such exquisite clarity that it reads like poetry. It is the first to give a medical explanation for the special power of women’s minds that has been seen as inferior and shameful because women do not think like men. Most important, women can understand how to enlist their full capacities and unique contributions. The feminine brain, whether it be in a male or female body, offers healing for our bodies, minds, and spirits." —Frank Lawlis, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of The ADD Answer "Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz has written a wise guidebook for women on how to thrive in a complex world filled with bewildering challenges and multiple roles. Women who do not understand the information in this book will be severely disadvantaged. Men, listen up. You need this wisdom, too."—Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things, Reinventing Medicine, and the New York Times bestseller Healing Words

"A must-read for any woman at any age who wants to maximize her mind, mood, and memory. Highly recommended!"—Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., President/Medical Director, Alzheimer’s Prevention Foundation, and author of The Better Memory Kit

"The New Feminine Brain should be in every family's medicine chest. It offers both a new model and new tools for healing and empowerment. In this era where every difference is a disability, Dr. Schulz offers us a perspective that helps us inhabit and master the universe that exists within our own brain. This book will change the way you live your life!"—Laura Day, author of Practical Intuition and The Circle

"A thought-provoking look at the differences between women and men. Can awaken women to their unique gifts and abilities. Fascinating and original."—Andrew Newberg, M.D., author of Why God Won’t Go Away: Brain Science and the Biology of Belief

"When Mona Lisa Schulz became my doctor back in 2000, I had no idea what a profound effect she would have on my life. She is one of the most gifted women I have ever met and had the great fortune of working with."—Wynonna Judd

"Prepare to discover your uniqueness, your story, and your gift in this fascinating read. A brilliant expert on the brain and a medical intuitive, Dr. Schulz is one of the most interesting healers I’ve ever met. As a baby-boomer, I’m also now using her medical advice on keeping brain cells activated to retain memory, stimulate brain flexibility, and stabilize good moods. This is an authoritative guide on my favorite subject—the human (female) brain."—Naomi Judd, author of Naomi’s Breakthrough Guide

"I was enthralled by the chapter Emotional Feng Shui: You Are What You Feel. And Mona Lisa’s Ten Step program for getting in touch with our intuition is life-changing. This is a book well worth reading and re-reading. Mona Lisa Schulz is pure genius."—Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and Empowering Women

"Dr. Schulz explains why my husband needs my brain to find small objects for him and why only the left-brain, linear, step-by-step explanations of my intuitive leaps register with him! The New Feminine Brain will help you see why your and your mate’s brains are different and how you can work better together."—Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, author of Hormone Balance

"You don’t have to be female to enjoy The New Feminine Brain. With her unique gift for blending rigorous knowledge and intuitive insight, hard medical facts and poignant storytelling, Mona Lisa Schulz has written a book certain to enchant everyone."—Elkhonon Goldberg, author of The Executive Brain and The Wisdom Paradox

"By the end of Dr. Schulz’s remarkable book, women will understand why their unique female perceptions of the world give them a rich experience of life, but also leave them vulnerable to stress and illness. With its optimistic, empowering message, women will be referring to The New Feminine Brain for years to come."—David Edelberg, M.D., author of The Triple Whammy Cure

Book Description Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Brand New Book. 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. Seller Inventory # LVN9780743243063
