An A-Z Woman's Guide to Vibrant Health

I dedicate this book to women of all ages.

Women constitute 53% of the earth's population. They perform two-thirds of the world's work for which they earn 10% of the income. They own 1% of the property and they have 100% of the children. Given these statistics, women should hold the majority of the political power in the world.

If You Love This Planet

We don't because we are too tired from
looking after our families, jobs and homes.
