To truly be a Super Woman, you must have certain Super Tools, and know how to use them to achieve your ultimate level of health, happiness, and vitality. 

Formulating and creating my new book, Super Woman Rx, is the culmination of more than 25 years of education in multiple systems of medicine and experience in treating over 10,000 patients. During this time, I've merged and integrated the best ideas from multiple healing practices, teachings, and systems of medicine and wisdom to create effective treatment and healthy lifestyle plans. I've learned that not all women benefit from the same treatments and recommendations. In fact, I've discovered that there are five dominant and different Power Types that respond to specific strategies and tools. By taking the Power Type Test you'll learn if you are a Gypsy Girl, Boss Lady, Savvy Chick, Earth Mama, or Nightingale—and that will give you guidance on the tools that will serve you best.

Everything I recommend—nutritional suggestions, supplements, meditations, remedies, exercises, and life strategies—is always based on scientifically tested medical and healing practices that have provided effective and impressive results either in clinical studies or in my own clinical practice. I want you to become a powerful advocate for your health! Knowing your own particular Super Tools gives you the personalized guide you need to biohack your own health so that you can spring forth into super health! 

Let's take a look at some of the top tools:

1. Super-powered nutrition tools

Nutrition is always my first go-to when it comes to improving and maintaining optimal health. Your body needs the right fuel in order to maximize it's potential. Knowing what foods your body does—or doesn't—need to thrive will guide you on your path to mental clarity, gut digestion and more.

2. Super-supplements based on your power type

Many of my patients don't even realize they are deficient in a certain vitamin or mineral. Once specific deficiencies are identified (this comes from understanding the unique variables of each patient's Power Type), I can provide a recommendation for the best supplements and herbs that are key for that Power Type to activate her super health powers.

3. Super moves for a super groove

Exercise is a fantastic super tool for revving up your immune system, improving mood and overall health, increasing energy, building muscle, and shedding fat. However, different Power Types flourish from different fitness activities (just answer these five questions to find the best workout for you). Some do better with gentle yoga and walking, while others benefit from more intense spin classes and running. If you're an Earth Mama, for example, and try to do a workout better suited for a Boss Lady, you could injure yourself and be sidelined before you ever get the amazing benefits that healthy exercise provides.

Meditation, using affirmations, color therapy, aroma therapy, massage therapy, therapy therapy (you know the sort with an actual therapist), drawing, writing, doing pottery, gardening acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, prayer, connecting with nature, and more are all fantastic ways that you can enlighten and empower your mind. Knowing what sort of Super Woman you are will guide you to the mindful hacks that will work the best for you to super charge your brain.

5. Super-powered slumber

According to a National Sleep Foundation Poll, compared to men, women are more likely to have trouble falling and staying asleep, to have pain at night, and to experience fatigue during the day. Sleep solutions are important, but not all women respond to the same sleep strategies as others. When you get clear on your unique needs you'll be able to incorporate the best sleep habits to help you snooze deeply and restfully, and awaken full of the powers and potential you need to succeed throughout each and every day!
