Gifty Enright, a successful working mother of two, found herself at a Harley Street clinic. She’d presented the doctor with her spreadsheet of 14 ‘women’s’ symptoms and was promptly offered HRT and a hysterectomy. But, rather than swallow the diagnosis along with the pills and surgery, Gifty had an epiphany; it was her lifestyle rather than her biology that was causing the imbalance in her hormones and her ability to live her best life.

For years, like so many other women of her generation who had been told they could ‘have it all’, Gifty had been racing like an Octopus on a Treadmill from dawn till dusk juggling family, career and the endless demands of modern life, to the detriment of her health.

In this enlightening, often laugh out loud self-help book, Gifty shares the secrets of how she turned her life around by taking a holistic approach. She transformed her physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Working with rather than against her body, Gifty kissed her 14 symptoms goodbye, while remaining at the top of her game both at home and at work. Backed up by rigorous research, Gifty provides a roadmap to your best self.

This book is a must-read for working women who wish to look life squarely in the eye and say, ‘Bring. It. On.’





“Every working mother needs to read this book, if for nothing else, to know that you are not alone and to have a good laugh, as it is hilarious in parts. I wish I’d had this book when I was starting out – it is a celebration of all women.

Gifty Enright’s wonderful book encapsulates the timeless truth that what a woman puts into her body, mind and spirit can either weigh her down, or buoy her up to live a better, stronger, healthier and happier life.

Gifty has gently woven science, wisdom, humour, experiences from her life and the lessons from different cultures; creating a book that is easy to read, practical and an eye-opening reminder of how and why we need to live a better life.”
