The Active Woman's Guide to Health

Winner of the Popular Medicine category at the British Medical Association book awards.

Keeping active as a woman will:

  • Give you the energy to get the most out of life
  • Help you stay on top form mentally and cope with all life throws at you
  • Keep you physically well through all life's transitions and into your future
  • Be a source of fun, pleasure and strength.

However, and it's a big however!

Keeping active as a woman isn't always simple. Despite knowing it will do us good there are so many barriers in our way. You might find:

  • You struggle to stay motivated to exercise
  • You just don't have enough time in your day to fit exercise in
  • You feel guilty about all the other things you should be doing
  • Women's health problems such as periods, breasts, menopause and a weak pelvic floor make it extra difficult
  • You don't have the information you need to overcome the health challenges stopping you from exercising.

Meet Juliet McGrattan

I was an exhausted, burnt-out, working mum of three pre-schoolers. Getting active transformed me. I realised that I was so much better equipped to cope with life when I was fit and healthy. During my 16 years as a General Practitioner, I saw thousands of women coping with everyday challenges at all stages of their lives. I could see how being active would help to prevent and treat the issues they had. But, I could also see that there were so many challenges, I decided to write a book to help them, to have the conversations that I didn't have time for in my short appointment slots and to pass on my knowledge in a way that was private (for the more awkward topics) and accessible to all. Sorted was the result of this, I poured everything I know into its pages to help women.

What's covered in Sorted?

This is a no-nonsense, straightforward and practical handbook to keep women active. You'll find:

  • Chapter on all the common women's health issues
  • Tips on when to see your doctor
  • Advice from experts
  • Stories from women themselves
  • Things to try at home
  • Colour photos, diagrams and illustrations

So whether it's piles, periods or pelvic floors, motivation, menopause or mental health, there is something in this for you, to help you stay active and healthy, now and in the future.
