An essential read for every woman, It's Not My Head It's My Hormones, by BHRT pioneer Dr Marion Gluck, teaches you how to optimise your hormone health and support your body, giving you the tools you need to stay well-balanced, energetic and happy. Too often women know only a little about how the complex system that controls their bodies works.

Marion explores this link at each stage of a woman's life, from puberty to post-menopause and uncovers the light and dark side of our hormones. She delves into specific conditions that can affect mental wellbeing: premenstrual tension, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and postpartum depression. She looks at how these interact with mood, affect our day-to-day lives and how they can be treated hormonally, before reviewing all of the options available to women from contraception to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.Dr Gluck gives you all the key information needed to find optimum solutions to hormonal issues, and leaves you confident in where you want to head for a healthy and balanced future. After reading It's Not My Head It's My Hormones, you will be empowered to take back control of your body.

Stephanie Sarkis

Gaslighting.What it is, how you can spot it - and how you can break freeHe's the charmer - the witty, confident, but overly controlling date. She's the woman on your team who always manages to take credit for your good work. He's the neighbour who swears you've been putting your rubbish into his bins, or the politician who can never admit to a mistake. Gaslighters are master controllers and manipulators, often challenging your very sense of reality. Whether it's a spouse, parent, co-worker, or friend, gaslighters distort the truth - by lying, withholding, triangulation, and more - making their victims question their own reality and sanity. Dr Stephanie Sarkis delves into this hidden manipulation technique, covering gaslighting in every life scenario, sharing: · Why gaslighters seem so 'normal' at first · Warning signs and examples · Gaslighter 'red flags' on a first date · Practical strategies for coping · How to co-parent with a gaslighter · How to protect yourself from a gaslighter at work · How to walk away and rebuild your life With clear-eyed wisdom and empathy, Dr Sarkis not only helps you determine if you are being victimized by a gaslighter - she gives you the tools to break free and heal.

The Electricity of Every Living Thing

Katherine May
Authors:
Katherine May

A life-affirming and perspective-shifting memoir of one woman's walk in the wilds as she comes to terms with an Asperger's diagnosis. In August 2015, Katherine May set out to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path. She wanted to understand why she had stopped coping with everyday life; why motherhood had been so overwhelming and isolating, and why the world felt full of inundation and expectations she can't meet. Setting her feet down on the rugged and difficult path by the sea, the answer begins to unfold. It's a chance encounter with a voice on the radio that sparks a realisation that she has Asperger's Syndrome. The Electricity of Every Living Thing tells the story of the year in which Katherine comes to terms with her diagnosis. It leads to a re-evaluation of her life so far - a kinder one, which finally allows her to be different rather than simply awkward, arrogant or unfeeling. The physical and psychological journeys become inextricably entwined, and as Katherine finds her way across the untameable coast, she also finds the way to herself. This book is a life-affirming exploration of wild landscapes, what it means to be different and, above all, how we can all learn to make peace within our own unquiet minds.
