About the book:

A gripping exploration of real-life heroines’ sacrifices, The Sacrifices of Superwomen: Natural Remedies to Restore Balance uncovers the negative health implications of the superwoman persona, particularly among women of color. Using the Sojourner syndrome as a symbolic thread, Dr. Sullivan navigates the complex history of these resilient women, illuminating the intertwined challenges of societal discrimination, single parenting, and daily stressors that lead to diminished self-worth and unhealthy habits.

This book highlights the transformational power of consistent, small changes in lifestyle, incorporating homeopathic/naturopathic medicine, nutrition, as well as meditation, exercise, and other self-care practices. Embark on an empowering journey towards creating a healthier, balanced life with this thought-provoking guide, and find solace in knowing that wellness is attainable.

About the author:

Dr. Andrea D. Sullivan was the first African American to receive a PhD in sociology/criminology from the University of Pennsylvania and the first to receive a degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. She is a licensed naturopathic physician with thirty-six years of experience, a founding member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and was appointed by the mayor of Washington, DC, to serve on the Board of Medicine. She has also received an honorary doctor of science degree from Sonoran University. A dynamic and inspiring lecturer, author, and TV and radio guest, she is passionate about exposing the effects of racism and sexism on the health and well-being of our society.
