Rushing Woman’s Syndrome describes the biochemical and emotional effects of always being in a hurry and the health consequences that urgency elicits. 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. She is often wound up like a top, running herself ragged in a daily battle to keep up. There is always so much to do, and she very rarely feels like she wins, is in control and 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. Most women in this state suffer terribly with their periods and women who go into menopause in this state usually find it debilitating.
Rushing Woman’s Syndrome explores how different parts of human biochemistry are affected by rushing. The nervous system, endocrine system (including sex and stress hormones, the thyroid and the pituitary gland) and the digestive system are examined, as well as the emotional aspect of ‘why’ women rush. Dr Libby can simplify even the most difficult biochemistry so effortlessly, making this book as equally educating as it is inspiring.
Rushing Woman’s Syndrome was inspired by Dr Libby’s clinical experiences and empathy for women and the many roles they now juggle. Dr Libby combines two decades of personal experience, fourteen years at university and thirteen years of clinical experience in her unique conversational style to offer you real solutions to both the biochemistry and the emotional patterns of the rush.
