Ask any woman if she feels tired, run-down, and overwhelmed, and most will probably answer yes. Today's woman has so much on her plate and is pulled in all different directions.

As the subtitle of the book states, it's "The Scientifically Backed Program for Feeling Great, Looking Younger, and Enjoying Amazing Energy at Any Age."

There are quizzes interspersed throughout the book to help you understand different issues better, and the one most interesting to me was the quiz (and the chapter) on stress.

The authors give very specific advice on natural treatments for dozens of issues, from insomnia to depression to memory and more.
No one knows your body better than you do, so why not make sure you are doing all you can to protect yourself against illness and disease? The Natural Superwoman is one step toward doing just that.
