3 Books Healthy Women Will Love

Some of the most glorious memories I have revolve around sitting outside getting lost in a good book.

I really believe that books make your life better in every way possible. If people don’t love books, they just haven’t found the right books yet. Similarly, we all learn differently, so if you find it challenging to sit down and read then maybe try audio books. There’s something so comforting to me about sitting down with a traditional book in hand and that’s usually how I roll, but audio books are great when traveling or if you’d just rather listen.

Today I want to share three books that I simply adored this summer. If you’re looking for a good read any time of year, then I highly recommend one or all of the following (in no particular order):

Medical Medium Review

Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life

by Glennon Doyle Melton (Scribner)

The essay collection-style of this book makes it easy to read and the author’s honesty and humility makes it easy to love. Glennon Doyle Melton is a blogger known for her raw honesty about 30-something life as an American woman. She’s blogged about her struggles with everything from eating to marriage and parenting, and says what most people are thinking but don’t want to say.

I had heard of the author before through mutual friends but just started following her more recently. She has a new book coming out called Love, Warrior about her struggles with drama and trauma in her marriage that I’ve been looking forward to reading, so I thought I’d order her first book to get to know her a little better. I’m so glad I did! I think any woman who is, has been or wants to be married with children should read this book. Glenn is so full of love and her honesty is refreshing. I’m really looking forward to her next book. Her blog over at Momastary.com is also fantastic and definitely worth reading.

The Alchemist

by Paulo Coelho (HarperOne)

What a wonderful story. This is one of the books that I’ve been meaning to read for ages but it kept getting pushed to the bottom of the pile. It’s been called one of the best 10 books of the 20th century and now that I’ve read it I totally understand why. At only 170 pages, this little novel has a huge impact on reminding you to follow the signs and omens in your life and what it means to live out your own destiny.

There are too many life messages in this book to count, but one of my favorites is that once you decide what you want and make a commitment to get it, the Universe conspires to make it happen. You’ll receive many lessons along your path that you didn’t necessarily ask for, and things rarely happen the way we expect. But in the end you will get what you’re looking for and exactly what you asked for. Another example of how we learn best through stories, you just have to read it to really understand its message. I simply adore this book and will recommend it everyone I know.

Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal

by Anthony William (Hay House, Inc.)

I’ll admit that reading this book requires a leap of faith. However, anyone suffering from an autoimmune condition, chronic illness or is sick without explanation should read this book. The author’s story is fascinating and he gives intriguing insights as to what the medical community might have incorrect about autoimmune diseases and chronic illness.

What really struck me in this book was his perspective on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I was diagnosed with severely low thyroid levels at the age of 18, after I had my tonsils removed and a bout of mononucleosis (therefore, the epstein-barr virus). I’ve always wondered (felt, even) if it was all connected and this is the first book that confirms my theory that my thyroid issues could be linked to EBV. I’ve been to dozens of MDs, naturopaths, healers and even now work with an endocrinologist to manage my diagnosis and this book really rocked my world. Again, it’s a leap of faith in the medical community, but it’s hard to ignore that Anthony William has helped tens of thousands of people with his teachings. And, most of life is a leap of faith, isn’t it? It’s not the end-all-be-all and there is still a lot of work to be done but I’m so glad I read this book. If you have thyroid issues, autoimmune issues or any chronic illness, then I highly suggest reading this book.

The back of the book states: Anthony William, the one and only Medical Medium, shares revolutionary insight—much of which science has yet to discover—into the reasons we suffer and how to finally heal from more than two dozen common conditions:

  • ADHD
  • Adrenal fatigue
  •  Autism
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Candida
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive disorders
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Lupus
  • Lyme disease
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Migraines
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • PTSD
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Vertigo and tinnitus
  • And more

If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you might be wondering why I’ve never written about my thyroid issues in depth. The truth is that I’m still working on learning what I need to know. I’m getting close, so stay tuned for more details on how I manage my hypothyroidism / Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

I hope you enjoy these books as much as I did. Let me know if you read one of them or if you already love one of them in the comments below.

    Am reading “Medical Medium” now. I sure hope there are things in here to help me as well as others. I have hypothyroidism and some type of arthritis in my hands and knees. Will follow any advice he has. Anything is better than drugs which I don’t like taking!
