Venus Week in New York City Is When Women Feel Their Best

[ NEW YORK, NY - NYC - 4/26/2009 - www.Littleviews.com ]

Dr. Rebecca Booth, author of The Venus Week>>  I interviewed Dr. Rebecca Booth, author of The Venus Week, to find out how women can increase their energy and outlook when touring exhausting places like New York City. I then proceeded to try several of her eating suggestions to see if they made a difference. They did!

Prior to writing this book, Dr. Booth, a practicing gynecologist in Louisville, Kentucky, wanted to find out why women feel like they own the world on one week (their Venus week), while during the rest of their monthly cycle, they often feel tired, bloated, or even (dare I say) bitchy. To do this, she systematically analyzed all phases of a woman's monthly hormonal cycle, then organized her findings into three categories: the Venus week, the Minerva Phase, and the Reset Phase.

The Venus week is the period when a woman's body gets ready to ovulate. During that period, women usually look and feel great, and are often very seductive!

The Minerva phase is when a woman's body determines whether she is pregnant, regardless of sexual activity. At this time, system-slowing hormones are generated. The Minerva phase is followed by the Reset phase, which is when female hormones drop to their lowest levels prior to ramping up for the next cycle.

Unfortunately, women feel their best during their Venus week, which is only one week out of four! Even more unfortunate, women who use birth control pills often experience only a very muted Venus week, an unwanted side effect caused by the medication.

As a result of her research, Dr. Booth outlines an eating, exercise, and dietary supplement plan that, when followed, can smooth out the effects of fluctuating hormones. By following this advice, women can stay closer in feeling and spirit to what they experience during their Venus week, but do so throughout the month.

Dr. Booth's book is easy to read and highly informative, covering a wide-range of women's issues. She believes that once women of all ages understand how hormonal cycles effect them, they can more successfully control how they feel (energetic versus bloated) and behave (sweet versus cranky). That said, mothers of teenage daughters will find this information especially enlightening.

Dr. Booth maintains that food has a big impact on female energy, no matter what hormonal cycle she's in. Littleviews' article, Women, Increase Your Energy While Touring New York City, discusses some of Dr. Booth's eating suggestions and my application of them.
