It's all too common to hear new mums talk about 'baby brain' and extreme fatigue. But what if it wasn't the physical toll of giving birth, breastfeeding or chasing a toddler that was sapping your strength? What it if was something deeper?

Dr. Oscar Serallach has spent his medical career witnessing women fail hormonally, nutritionally and emotionally to get back on their feet after having a baby. The true cause? A syndrome he calls postnatal depletion.

THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is the first book to name the syndrome and to offer a practical programme to help mothers replenish their bodies after having a baby. The book includes a comprehensive guide to the nutrients women need to enhance organ function and balance hormones, along with advice on how to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and get necessary rest, despite the demands of motherhood. Filled with prescriptive takeaways and many success stories, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE will help mothers be the best they can be physically and emotionally.

Review quote


Motherhood is a joyous experience in a woman's life but also an incredibly complex and confusing one. Mothers rarely get the attention they need to truly heal. Most experience exhaustion, pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low-energy levels, moodiness or some form of 'baby brain' - not just within the first seven months after giving birth, but during the first seven years!

THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE treats the whole woman, examining the unique constellation of symptoms that can be caused by nutrient depletion, sleep loss and the emotional shifts triggered by pregnancy. There is a way back to vitality and good health, and Dr Serrallach offers diagnoses and treatments that can drastically improve physical and emotional well-being.

With trustworthy advice and protocols for successful recovery, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE will help every mother restore her energy, replenish her body and reclaim her sense of self.
