Interview with Leslie Carol Botha, WHE – Understanding Your Mind, Mood and Hormone Cycle and How It Interacts with Drugs and Alcohol

1.  Your book, Understanding Your Mind, Mood and Hormone Cycle, has just been released. Briefly describe your book’s message.

Understanding Your Mind, Mood, and Hormone Cycle – UMMHC –  is dedicated to the women who want to understand the intimate relationship between their hormone cycle and its impact on their thoughts and feelings in their everyday activities. It is filled with common sense information, structured to provide a deeper appreciation of the power women exercise over their lives by simply learning about, understanding and acknowledging cyclical hormonal changes.

Modern medicine has promoted the concept of specialization – a separation that pertains not only to the condition of the different parts of the body, but also encourages us to consider our own body, mind, heart and spirit as separate and not part of an integrated system. This perspective of separation has given women the idea that we need to consult a specialist to treat isolated parts of our body, as well as specialists for our mind, emotions, and spirit. We have divided ourselves into such small segments that it seems no one has the ability to put us back together again.  Creating healthy begins with a shift in this perspective to one that recognizes the whole body really is something much greater than the sum of its parts; a shift that recognizes that health is our birthright and represents our natural state. Such a change in perception can change how we express vibrant health and inner peace.
