Energy Medicine for Women

Energy Medicine is particularly potent for women. For almost every health condition a woman faces, hormonal imbalances are in the foreground or in the background. Energy Medicine can help you dance with your hormones more effectively and gracefully than we in the Western world have been taught. In Donna Eden’s award-winning book Energy Medicine for Women, she will teach you how to become a better partner with your own energies and your hormones. When your energies are in harmony, your hormones follow. Energy Medicine helps your body become more effective in adapting to the world in which you live, with its fast pace, stresses, and pollution.

Energy Medicine for Women takes you on a personal tour of your body as an energy system, and it offers simple “energy tools” you can use to help your body function at its best. Below is an example of an exercise found in Energy Medicine for Women, designed to help clear the body of stress and stress chemicals while supporting harmony among your hormones.

The Hormone Hook-up

Step 1. Bring the thumb, index, and middle finger of your right hand together and lightly place this "three finger cluster" at the top of your head.
Step 2. Simultaneously make a three-finger cluster with your left hand and place it just over the curve behind the top of your head. Hold both points for the length of three slow, deep breaths. (In through the nose and out through the mouth.)
Step 3. Flatten your right hand so your palm is on your forehead with your middle finger pointing toward the top of your head. Relax into this hold for another three deep breaths, and relax.

Note: This energy exercise can be done anytime your sense you might benefit from it.
