BLOSSOMING, Becoming a Woman, Get Savvy Get Strong! Discover the Secrets to Balancing Your Hormones and Your Life is the first book in a series Susan Stroh in collaboration with Dr. Victoria Mondloch have developed and written on women’s health entitled Hormones for Life.
Entering adolescence and navigating all the changes and challenges of those years is a bit like white-water rafting; exciting, but sometimes scary. A safe, sturdy boat and a great guide with immense know-how is what is needed for a successful journey where a girl can enjoy the ride while avoiding the rocks. That is what BLOSSOMING, Becoming a Woman, Get Savvy Get Strong! Discover the Secrets to Balancing Your Hormones and Your Life provides.
BLOSSOMING, Becoming a Woman focuses on pre-adolescent and adolescent girls and their struggles to gain and maintain physical and emotional health, to meet their school-related and social challenges and to handle all issues of life that might be influenced by, of all things, an imbalance in hormones.
Finding out all about how hormones and glands work together, how to take care of the adolescent athlete, how to apply the elements of a successful, healthy lifestyle, how to deal with their first visit to the gynecologist are only some of the vital subjects addressed.
Did you know that girls beginning menstruation and moving into womanhood and their mothers, who are dealing with ending menstruation, mirror each other’s hormonal symptoms? That’s one reason of many they should team up to get the know-how in this book and support each other.
Over thirty years in practice, Dr. Mondloch has helped teenagers maneuver their changes and also helped their mothers, who not only remember the pressures and distractions of their own adolescence, but also are often going through these same hormone swings themselves. A daughter and mother reading this book together can bring about an increase in their knowledge, stability and harmony in their relationship, and smooth transitions for both of them.
