What Is Your Body Telling You?
Dr. Northrup says Geniece should begin each day by meditating with her heart. "Smile into your heart. Think about your heart. Take yourself into your heart. Do two minutes of smiling into your heart with your eyes closed and see what you feel like doing from that moment. And if you're doing something only because you feel guilty if you don't do it, you can't do it. Okay? Except for taking care of your kids."
Oprah says her own health issues with her thyroid are now in balance, but she stresses the importance of prevention. "So many of us wait—we don't take the wake-up call. So use the example of all the other women who have broken down, me included, and use that. What will it take to bring yourself into balance? What will it take for you to care enough about yourself? Don't wait until you have caused harm to yourself before you realize that balance was what you needed to give to yourself."
"So this show is actually preventative medicine," Dr. Northrup says.
