Every male and female on this planet can gain considerable insight and clarity into the complexities of the us humans by reading and incorporating suggested life strategies by this most insightful author. This is one of the most comprehensive, yet elegantly written summaries of the key elements that comprise our bodies... physical, mental, emotional, energy ... natures. Seldom do the majority of people even imagine the real impact that our Emotional and Energy bodies contribute to our complications of health and well being. Dr. Kumar is elegant in her real life descriptions of comprehensive health, medical treatments, and informative descriptions of distressing complications of mid life issue. While concentrating on the Feminine Principal ... this is a must read for all males as well, as they also go thru a mid life transformation with little or no understanding from traditional medical or psychological writers. Dr. Kumar includes important and meaningful food issues that are so frequently misunderstand, yet so widely misused and adopted by the masses. Paying attention to Gluten, Dairy, Sugar and Alcohol food groups is especially enlightening. Cause and effects of dietary components clearly explain complicated symptoms that are frequently so mis-diagnosed and treated by the Western Medical community providers. This is a must read book in my humble opinion.
Dave ... a life long student trying to better understand life processes and all of its meaning for better fulfillment and quality of our lives.
I feel like I had such a hunger for her story & information that she provides in the book. I originally purchased it for the middle age women in my life, but she said that i could find value in is as well, and I definitely have. I have felt myself undergoing a transformation while reading it-It's nice to get understanding & context of her background & she writes so beautifully, it's like a big smile when I read her words.
What I like most about her, is what a good educator she is- explaining the why & the cause of what is happening inside of me/us... and what easy, practical changes we can make to have the lives we want. Knowledge is empowering.
I feel this, I believe in it's truth, relevance and power - for both men and women.
I will be reading this book again, this time with more specific note-taking and action planning.
Dr. Kumar has my most sincere "Thank You".
men and women. All men who have relationships with women should read this
so that they can understand the power of the menopausal process. The book
itself provides an extraordinary framework for transformation into
authenticity in midlife for both men and women. It is an excellent read and
brings, depth, meaning and synthesis to the life process. I highly
recommend this book for men and women of all ages.
I have been sick and diagnosed with numerous different issues for the past 15 years.
In just a few months Dr. Kumar has most of my issues under control and on the path to a healthier life.
She truly cares about helping every one of her patients get healthy. She has changed my way of thinking about food and how food can heal.
I reference her book "Becoming Real" on a regular basis. It helps me keep on track and continue to work to becoming my Real Self.
I am thankful for finding the Ommani Center, and looking forward to continued healing with her help
