Celebrated gynecologist Christiane Northrup offers women a holistic approach to good physical and mental health based on an understanding and acceptance of the influence the mother-daughter relationship has on a woman’s life. She hypothesizes that once we fully understand and accept this sometimes volatile connection, good health will follow for both women. Read by the author, the audiobook offers some sound advice on cleaning the physical and spiritual house, with some parenting advice thrown in for good measure. Dr. Northrup reads her work with the compassionate firmness desirable in a physician. Her tone is one you might expect during an office visit, with a bit of stiffness and formality. She uses just the right amount of authority to make some of her less mainstream ideas sound reasonable, and makes accessible the idea of a mind-body connection.
