Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking health guide for women of all ages that shows their natural moodiness is a strength, not a weakness.

As women, we learn from an early age that our moods are a problem, an annoyance to be stuffed away. But our bodies are wiser than we imagine. Moods are a finely tuned feedback system that allows us to be more empathic, intuitive, and aware of our own capabilities. If we deny our emotionality, we deny the breadth of our talents.

Yet millions of American women are medicating away their emotions with psychiatric drugs whose effects are more far-reaching than most of us realize. And even if we don’t pop a pill, women everywhere are numbing their emotions with food, alcohol, and a host of addictive behaviors that deny the wisdom of our bodies and keep us from addressing the real issues we face.

Psychiatrist Julie Holland knows there is a better way. In Moody Bitches, she shares insider information about the drugs we’re being offered and the direct link between food and mood, and she offers practical advice on sex, exercise, and sleep strategies, as well as some surprisingly effective natural therapies. 

In the tradition of Our Bodies, Our Selves, this groundbreaking guide will forge a much needed new path in women’s health - and offer women invaluable information on how to live better, and be more balanced, at every stage of life.

The title attracted me to this book but...

when I got into it I was excited because it was more than I expected. I learned a lot of different things about my body, brain, sex, exercise, nature, medications, eating and the list goes on. She hit on it all. Easy to listen to. I depart from Moody Bitches a happier and smarter Bitch. Thanks!

Every woman should read this book to know who she really is and not who we've been told to be.

Psuedoscientific and useless.

Couldn't finish. The content was aimed at the gullible and vulnerable. It didn't contain substantive answers for medical issues women face today, it felt like watching the women's health report on morning talk shows.

This book is an education!

I learned so much about myself listening to this book. So much information that explained some pretty normal things us women experience but do not usually discuss. A great read to learn more about your body.

Perfect mix of witty and educational

I loved every second of this book. So smart and so interesting. It was unlike other books about health science etc. that make me fall asleep with boredom. It was an amazing mesh between not only the science behind female bodies and medicines but also the real world social Implications and stressors that effect our bodies. Was on the edge of my seat. Just amazing.
