Best Audience: Women facing PMS, Perimenopause, and Menopausal strife and their partners
The day I bought my copy of Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine for Women: Aligning Your Body’s Energies to Boost Your Health and Vitality, I was in despair. I’d spent the better part of that month struggling with what just about everyone else (including one particularly rude woman doctor) said was just PMS. Yes, most of them had actually used the word just to describe what for me had become an almost daily ordeal. I realized I was in perimenopause, and I felt completely alone and dejected. So, I went to the bookstore, my place of solace away from hearth, home, family, and all the work hearth, home, and family involve. I wandered through the natural health, women’s health, and alternative medicine aisles hoping to find something that might help.
Two hours later, I’d picked up a copy of Eden’s book, read the first 30 pages, and decided it was exactly what I needed. I arrived home with my new acquisition with plans to have a cup of tea and maybe read some more only to have my man announce that Donna Eden was his newest design client. The Universe was really working to get my attention that day, and for a good reason. Energy Medicine for Women turned out to be a terrific workbook, really, to coping with the early days of perimenopause when my hormonal system still wasn’t sure on which side of the debate she wanted to be.
I used Eden’s techniques for about five years from my late thirties into my early forties to help take the edge off perimenopausal experiences like hot flashes, migraines, foggy mind, depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive strife, and some of the old PMS standbys like cramps and tender breasts. Where her Energy Medicine techniques really shined for me where in dealing with the various levels of and types of depression I was facing. Most of them were rooted in stress and hormonal imbalances as my body committed to middle-age. Her techniques were generally approachable and easy to do even in public settings. They didn’t make the challenges go away, but they helped make them easier to manage.
Eden’s work covers the range of women’s fertile and menopausal journey. I found it late in the game, but I imagine Energy Medicine for Women would have been helpful to me in dealing with PMS and even some of the side effects of pregnancy. If you’re looking for natural solutions to help ease some of the classic stuff women face through their fertile years and beyond, Energy Medicine for Women: Aligning Your Body’s Energies to Boost Your Health and Vitality by Donna Eden may well help you on your path. If you’re partnered with a woman who’s facing hormonally-driven challenges, you might want to give Energy Medicine for Women a read as well; Eden includes a lot of techniques a loving partner might perform to help his or her gal feel better as well.
Bottom line: Energy Medicine for Women: Aligning Your Body’s Energies to Boost Your Health and Vitality by Donna Eden has earned a place on my bookshelf at least until the Meno actually Pauses.
