This third edition of Rhythms of Women's Desire, a provocative and informative book about female sexuality and life changes, will empower you to understand your sexuality in the context of your entire lifetime. Author Elizabeth Davis' focus on sexual changes over time is what makes this book unique; she gives you insight into what is natural at each sexual stage and how it all fits together in the context of a lifetime. This book envisages menarche (first menstruation), childbirth, and menopause as transformative, biological turning points and gives the reader a view of what these events have in common hormonally and psychologically. The new edition has been been updated to reflect the latest scientific research, including a deeper examination of post-menopausal and postpartum sexuality and the hormonal imbalances caused by xenoestrogens. Updates also include new information about the link between oxytocin, brainwaves, and intuition — and about how abortion, miscarriage, and other major losses can affect the desire for sex, with suggestions for healing and a worksheet for dealing with trauma and abuse issues. Rhythms of Women's Desire is a frank, personal, and exciting journey into female sexuality and a helpful guide through every stage of your life.

She focuses on abundant eat­ing (as opposed to restrictive eating), and explores what she calls “the healthy trinity”—digestion, balance, and whole foods. Adler guides and encourages readers to shift their diet to achieve this desirable bal­ance, introduces power foods we should all eat, and provides healthy ways to lose weight, along with simple recipes to optimize health. With her personal story interwoven, readers will be inspired to embrace the healthy power of food. From the Hardcover edition.
