Most of us don't really listen to our bodies. We exist solely from our heads and ignore the rest, but this way of living is not healthy in the long term. Women's health used to focus on what makes our bodies unique, but we are only now discovering what makes our brains fundamentally different from men's brains. Women’s brains and bodies experience imbalance, weight gain, stress, exhaustion, forgetfulness, addiction, depression, and anxiety in unique and extraordinary ways. What works for…
