Disparaging images in the media. The subject of misogynistic lyrics and derogatory comments from famous celebrities and bloggers unknown. Colorism. The largest demographic of women who live as head-of-household and a growing shortage of marriage-minded (and marriage-worthy) Black men. These are just some of the ways Black women proverbially "catch hell" in today's society. Black women also disproportionately suffer from killer diseases such as diabetes, cancer, infant mortality, HIV/AIDS and more.


      Yet despite all the psycho-social attacks—the "hell"—Black women face, they have the lowest rate of suicide compared to other demographics and many live phenomenally well as cherished wives, trailblazing professionals and entrepreneurs. Living Well, Despite Catchin' Hell provides head-to-toe medical advice on heart disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, fibroid tumors and other medical diagnoses, and it acknowledges the direct effect such social rejection and attacks (the "hell") that Black women experience on a near-daily basis have on their psyche and physical health. Dr. McCloud's ground-breaking "Rejection Connection" flowchart clearly demonstrates the medical-psycho-social link.


      With an upbeat approach (and with health as the common thread woven through each section), Living Well...Despite Catchin' Hell is professional medical advice, sexology, sociology, psychology, dashes of pop culture and hefty doses of personal responsibility. It is the one-source, go-to health reference Black women need in order to live healthy, happy, long and strong in the 21st century.

(Simon & Schuster; ISBN: 0743410424)

Many women will go to church every Sunday of every week, but won't take one day of the year to get a pap and mammogram done. As a result, they are dying prematurely. It doesn't have to be that way. A comprehensive women's wellness guide (including a “Prescription for your Soul”), BLESSED HEALTH provides information on fibroids, STDs, pregnancy, menopause and how spiritual wisdom and prayer can decrease the harmful effects of stress. Featured in Parade, Essence, Village Voice, Family Circle and more. BLESSED HEALTH has been approved by, and is listed in, the U. S. Office of Minority Health Resource Center [Accession number: MH03D5722.]


Available in print and as an eBook at and Barnes and Noble.


NOTE: Since this book is older, get the eBook version for the "Prescriptions for Your Soul"; it's cheaper! But remember that Living Well is more medically current.
