Super Woman Rx

Grab some pens. A highlighter. Sticky notes, too.

And then you can start reading Super Woman Rx.

It’s a health book unlike any other that I’ve read. Part science text, part lifestyle guide, and part cookbook, it brings the integrative medical care pioneered by Dr. Taz to every woman.

At her Centre Spring clinics in Atlanta, Dr. Taz treats her patients with a blend of Western medicine, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine. Each patient receives a tailor-made regimen after a full blood and hormone workup that blends modern medicine, acupuncture and herbs, and lifestyle changes.

A quiz early in the book helps you discover your power type, and the corresponding chapter breaks down why you feel the way you do, and what you can do to optimize it.

As a Boss Lady, I need more gentle exercise to recharge from my go-go-go lifestyle. Acupuncture is recommended, though I have yet to start it. And my digestion is prone to getting out of whack, which can be remedied through both supplements and the Boss Lady 3 week power plan.

Like so many personal development books, Super Woman Rx definitely has its cheesy moments (the power type names, for one). I didn’t really use the recipes provided in the book either. But the science is sound, as evidenced by the thousands of patients that Dr. Taz has treated using this framework.

I’ve re-read Super Woman Rx when I feel my energy begin to wane or before my annual checkups. Following my power type’s plan usually helps me get back on track within a couple of weeks, which has been a lifesaver.

I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Super Woman Rx, as well as listen to her interview on the Goop podcast. You can discover your power type via this quiz as well.

Want more books that will change your life? I highly recommend The Myth Of The Nice Girl, Drop The Ball, and How To Get Sh*t Done. Next up on my list – The Archtype Diet.

I share a book review on Fridays. You can find them all here.
