Summary

Do you often feel overwhelmed, and in a daily battle to keep up? That you rarely get on top of your to-do list, and at times feel out of control and unable to cope? If so, you may be experiencing the first signs of rushing woman's syndrome....

Never before have women been in such a hurry to do so many things and be there for so many people. The pace of modern life has drastically increased - but even though our minds can go faster and technology allows us to get more done, our bodies still have cavewoman-like biology - which means they cannot respond healthily to the new and constant pressures we experience. In this book, nutritional biochemist Dr. Libby Weaver explains how a stressful, fast-paced lifestyle can have dangerous effects on all areas of a woman's health, including:

  • Nervous system - how an imbalanced nervous system may be causing you to gain weight and disrupting your sleep
  • Adrenal glands - why adrenal fatigue may be making you feel tired but wired
  • Reproductive system - how your daily stresses may be affecting your menstrual cycle or fertility
  • Digestive system - why stress could be at the heart of your bloating, cravings or unpredictable appetite
  • Emotions - how your emotional landscape holds the key to leading a fulfilling life without the need to rush

Inspired by Dr. Libby's clinical experiences and her empathy for women and the many roles they now juggle, this audiobook offers real solutions to restore your health so that you can stay both productive and healthy.

Sorry but narrator is awful

Returned this book in first 3 minutes. Doesn’t sound like a professional narrator. Book content sounds excellent but there’s no way I could manage 6.5hrs of such uninspiring narration. And for a book about trying to stop rushing, she’s reading it too fast (but slowing narration speed sounds awful). Will buy the hard copy instead.

Very monotonous

This book was not for me . The narration was monotone and left me bored with the content.
I did not like this book - not for me and would not recommend.
Boring narration. Felt like she was reading a list .
Read many self help books this was probably my least favourite and got nothing from it .

Wow

Such an eye opening book. Explained in simple terms made the science so much easier to understand and apply. Has made me realise that I need to change years of bad habits.

Hard listen, disappointing

Although this was recommended - the author needs to have a professional narrator read her work. The voice is grating and harsh, too fast, as in the title. I have not been able to listen to perhaps valuable content.

Incredibly Educational and Helpful

This book was recommended by a friend and I cannot thank her enough! Dr. Weaver uses her background in science to highlight numerous issues many women face today due to our hectic lifestyles and how these issues affect our health. She also offers recommendations on how to overcome these issues by slowing down and making adjustments to our daily routines in addition to exercise, supplements, and diet, all of which I found incredibly interesting! I have already recommended this book to men and women I know because algorithms it’s tailored to women, I think the premise can be insightful to men as well in regard to SNS dominance and weight gain. Overall, totally worth a listen!!

no science to back to anti caffeine claim

Wasted my money. She missed the mark. Without detoxing and removing bad oils, you won't be able to 'journal' yourself to better health. Go to Dr. Mindy Pelz for science based answers #resetters
