A sneak peek
into the book
Who are these [ ALREADY PERFECT ] women, the ones we use as models for arranging our days, weeks, and years the way we do? Are they ATHLETES silently suffering from depression, reproductive troubles and persistent joint pain? Are they PROFESSIONAL WORKING MOMS who seem admirably thin but struggle with stress and fatigue?
A woman acting in the interest of HER health and listening to HER wisdom never measures herself against the women around her; "TRUE HEALTH" is not accurately judged by outside glances or traits our culture deems good or bad. Women are empowered when they make individual, compassionate choices that focus on their complete [ MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT SYSTEM ].
Jenn was a client whose chief complaint was seasonal allergies. Within the first few minutes of our intake, she mentioned her LIFELONG issues with weight gain, but only as a way to put herself down (women often feel compelled to let other women know they are not satisfied with their physical appearance); she had not come to work on weight loss because SHE DIDN'T REALLY BELIEVE that was possible anymore.
Every conversation with a woman about AYURVEDA addresses food, digestion, and [THE EMOTIONS FELT DURING AND AFTER EATING]. Allergies are the by-product of an unhealthy digestive process and a build-up of digestive sludge, known in Sanskrit as "Ama". And while Ayurveda offers a variety of herbal medicines and techniques for healing seasonal allergies, the physical, emotional, and spiritual intake of food is the basis of treatment. Over the next couple of visits, we talked about Jenn's attempts at weight loss, which included a variety of diets and cleanses. When she spoke, she conveyed disappointment with her physical body and the emotion of failure. But I also heard the confusion caused by our culture's lack of knowledge and the emotional distress that an ill-informed and judgmental culture creates.
Jenn had bounced between light and heavy food choices her entire life. She knew the STEREOTYPE of the healthy woman who is able to cleanse regularly, consume liquid meals, and drink green juice for lunch. But whenever she attempted this type of weight loss routine, she felt overly light, ANXIOUS, and preoccupied with thoughts of food and [ BODY IMAGE ] . When motivated to change her mornings, she tried a type of exercise class that society glorifies, but which wasn't right for her. The class was too intense for her calm nature, and she never really enjoyed herself. In addition, she sometimes ran, although it hurt her knee. When motivated to lose weight Jenn often mixed exercise with "diets" and deep caloric withdrawal.
Yes! Jenn did learn how to love, appreciate and work with her beautiful body and unique elemental nature.
Whether you are a woman like Jenn-- or a woman with an entirely different food and fitness story--The Elemental Woman will teach you how to use Ayurveda to love your body, heal your mind and live a uniquely healthy life.
It's time to begin your true health journey :
MAINSTREAM AMERICAN CULTURE HAS ITS OWN DISEASE AND USES IMAGES AND STEREOTYPES TO SPREAD CONTAMINATION. ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WOMEN SUFFER FROM DISEASE IS BECAUSE THEY GREW UP IN A CULTURE THAT TAUGHT THEM TO FOCUS ON HOW THEIR BODY LOOKS RATHER THAN FORM A DEEP AND INTUITIVE UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THEIR BODY FEELS. TO ACHIEVE TRUE AND LASTING HEALTH, A WOMAN MUST FIRST HEAL FROM THE PRESSURES AND MISINFORMATION THAT MAINSTREAM AMERICAN CULTURE INFLICTED UPON HER.
Why this book is different :
The Elemental Woman is THE book for a new generation of readers seeking health and wellness. This book stands out because it does not promise women that their lives will change if they implement one to two healing techniques. Today’s readers expect far more from their “health gurus” and women are craving real information from experts that have worked in their communities. Author Tara Lee Clasen is telling women how they can empower themselves by healing with plant-based food, proper fitness routines, connecting with Mother Nature and uniting with the women around them. By developing new lifestyle skills, women will learn to love and honor their overall “Mind, Body and Spirit System”.
This book is right for you if :
YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM, DIGESTIVE ISSUES, JOINT PAIN, OR REPRODUCTIVE TROUBLES.
YOU'RE NOT SEEING THE RESULTS YOU WANT FROM WESTERN MEDICINE AND ARE CURIOUS ABOUT DIFFERENT APPROACHES.
YOU'RE READY TO REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR DAILY LIFE BY MAKING INCREMENTAL CHANGES TO YOUR LIFESTYLE THAT WILL RELIEVE SYMPTOMS AND LEAD YOU TOWARDS HEALING.
