Woman Code by Alisa Vitti
Updated: Jul 1, 2019
What is this book is about?
This book cracks the female hormone code and provides an evidence-based guide to healing a range of female hormonal problems using an holistic, lifestyle-based approach. The author, Alisa Vitti, is a functional nutritionist and holistic health coach with a special-interest in female endocrinology (that is, women’s hormones) who discovered the power of food, supplements and self-care when researching how to manage her own hormonal issues - Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Alisa starts the book by sharing her own journey, then moves on to outline the obstacles that women face when caring for their hormonal health. She then deep dives into an easy-to-understand explanation of how the female endocrine system works before launching into The WomanCode Protocol – a step-by-step guide to accessing your healing code and optimising your hormonal health, including your menstrual cycle, your fertility, your sexual health and your general wellbeing.
What I liked about the book
I like that this book provides explanations for the underlying issues affecting women’s hormonal health. I like that Alisa uncovers the many myths that women have come to believe about their hormones and provides scientific justifications for why these myths are harmful. I also like the practical protocol that Alisa has designed for women to follow, including meal plans and lifestyle routines, that can be implemented in a step-by-step fashion to achieve results that are long-lasting rather than a quick-fix. Finally, I really enjoyed the testimonials that reinforce the power of Alisa’s protocol.
Who should read this book?
This book is for every woman who has ever experienced “hormonal symptoms.” I would also recommend this book to any health practitioner who cares for women, as it provides an excellent basis for understanding the vital importance of nurturing the female endocrine system as part of an holistic approach to women’s health and wellbeing.
