The book provides a comprehensive overview of female health and well being including:
o Period 101
o Food cycling, seed cycling
o Disorders common among females such as PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid disorders etc.
The book divides the period into four phases: menstrual, follicular, ovulatory, and luteal. The chapter for food cycling explains what a female body is going through in each of the phases, and which nutrition (micro, micro, antioxidant etc.) you should prioritize based on the hormonal activities during that phase. The book is very thoroughly researched and based on solid claims backed up by a long list of references to scientific papers in the end of chapters.
Tracy does a wonderful job to highlight two areas of health that are unfortunately often undermined or neglected by the conventional medicine: women’s period and foods’ impact on our health. She is such a wealth of knowledge and conveys that in a bright, cheerful, and personable manner, the attributes that I got instantly attracted to while listening to the podcast. The book is full of deep scientific knowledge written in an easy-to-read and -digest manner.
The best part of the book however must be the recipes. I have a countless number of health & wellness self-books that contain recipes to support whatever paradigm of health improvement they are talking about, ranging from autoimmunity disorders to genes and gut health. I usually find 95 % of these recipes disappointing falling either under the category of too complicated/expensive to cook, not palatable, or not original. All of the recipes in Tracy’s book I have tried became an instant regular in my everyday recipe repertoire – they are so easy to make yet original and super tasty! I love, love the edamame pesto – who knew that edamame can be cooked in this way!
Highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who want to improve their health by applying the concept of “foods as medicine” to optimize your female hormones. As it is rather rare to see a book tackling the connection between foods and female hormones, both nutrition newbies and experienced health hackers alike will find something new and helpful in this book. Last but not least, men who want to learn about women’s biological system will find the book tremendously helpful. A wonderful book, cannot recommend it higher!
