There are so many diets out there—Paleo, low or no fat; vegan or vegetarian; dairy, sugar, gluten, or lactose free—and many more. Most offer one answer, one diet, and one fitness regimen. How can you tell which one is right for you? I learned the hard way that following a standard eating plan, designed for some fictional generic woman, just doesn't cut it. Plus, from many years of experience working with thousands of women, I know that every one of us has unique needs and a one-size-fits-all plan just doesn't work in the long run.

The vast majority of the hundreds of magic-bullet eating plans out there don't take into account your age, your activity level, your starting weight, your metabolism, your personality, your lifestyle, and so on. The few that do usually only take one factor such as blood type or hormones and ignore so many other factors. You might have sensitivities to red meat, dairy, or gluten, or you may need more or less protein in your diet. You may have philosophical reasons for not eating animal protein, or maybe you fly into road rage whenever you try to cut out all carbs. 

There is a better way to live—and to eat! I believe that every woman has sleeping superpowers inside her—she just needs the key to awaken her own unique Super Woman. In my practice, and now in my new book Super Woman Rx, I provide guidelines and strategies to make sure that every woman can become a powerful advocate for her own health. I do this by incorporating all of the best medicine, healing practices, science, and knowledge from around the world so that you can biohack your own health in a way that is personalized, tailored and created just for you.
