Your Best Life – A Doctor’s Secret Guide to Radiant Health Over 40


Louise tells the story of how a near fatal pneumonia as an NHS GP and mother of two transformed her life and way of thinking about health. In this personal narrative of how she ‘had it all’ and then nearly lost it, she explains how she sought even better health after her recovery. Louise looked hard for answers in all areas of medicine that could help women around the world to then embrace each and every decade. She takes an exciting tour from head to toe within the wonderful female body. By talking to specialists on the frontline coupled with her own research, she brings to you the secret to living your best life in terms of health and happiness. 

Her passion is to transform the way women think about themselves and realise that 40, 50, 60, 70 can all be a new beginning. Can women really have it all? Yes, you can, and then some! You will find the answers and be motivated to find out more about how to achieve your very own best life over 40.

The paperback is now released and the ebook is live to download on all devices. Louise was recently featured in NetDoctor and Red Magazine online giving a sneak peak into her book with her top ten tips for women over 40. Her short story will soon be published in the British Medical Journal The Doctor magazine and she is frequently appearing in podcasts and instagram TV discussions. Louise is passionate about changing the way women see their 40s and beyond!

What a stunning book! Beautiful to look at and absolutely packed full of amazing advice. It's so comprehensive, very well written and a real treasure trove of tips for women. Louise has done a brilliant job in bringing medical evidence and wellbeing together. There's so much nonsense out there and this feels not only credible but motivating and inspiring too.

For middle-aged women only? - no - I am nearly 80 and this book is for all ages. At last varied and exciting information in one place. Everything I look for is there. This is not for the bookshelf but for the coffee table to pick up often. I wouldn't be without it.

A really all encompassing guide to women's health, including nutrition, exercise, mental health, etc. Very thorough and packed with useful information.

I love how the book is split into different sections. I can choose what I need to read depending on where I am on my journey, especially negotiating my way through the menopause.
Louise has captured so much information and it's not judgemental, just realistic. It is so comforting to read everyone else's journey, you realise that we are all just trying to live our best life! Every woman should read this book. Thank you Louise.

So much brilliant information in this book. It touches on all the most important issues that we face today as it relates to our health and well-being. Written by a doctor but in layman’s terms. A book that is much needed in today’s questioning times on health. So glad to have it! Can’t put it down!

I found this book really useful, having just turned 40 myself this year. It was full of information on health, nutrition, women’s health and mental health – all pretty handy for me at the moment.

I would like to thank the publisher, Troubadour Publishing LTD. and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of "Your Best Life- A Doctor's Secret Guide to Radiant Health Over 40, by Louise Wiseman.

I was very curious from the title of the book and consider myself so lucky that i received an ARC of this absolute must read of this book. This book is a great reference for all women of any age as the earlier we know how to take care of ourselves, the better. And let us be honest, changing habits take time so the earlier we start the better.

The book deals with most health issues and issues affecting women particularly, such as the psychology of aging, health screening and beauty, mental health, dental care, skin care products, hair loss, the importance of female bonding, diet and exercise, supplements and muscles and joints.

This book essay to read and the information is presented very well. This book serves as a reference and thus does not have to be read all in one sitting but rather over time or when an issue presents itself in your life.

I highly recommend this book!! It makes a great present to all of your female friends and family members.

by NetGalley review

Honestly I got this book to help the ladies I work with. They are all wonderous women over 40. Somehow there aren't many nearly as many science based books for women over 40 as I made the assumption there would be. When I saw this was available I jumped on it. Now I've recommended it to all of them. I loved how easy to read this was, but it's sciency enough for those of us who need to see cited studies. There are tons of practical tips, ways for women to advocate for themselves, and ways to empower women over 40 to take better care of their health. It was a fantastic read regardless of if you fall in this category. If you are female, this is a good read, or you have a spouse who is female: also read this.

by NetGalley review

Loved this book. Loved this doctor's approach to explaining how to be radiant and deal with issues many of us face after 40. The author was warm, friendly, and engaging, with the science and research told in an interesting way. Lots of great information. Reading this book was like sitting down and talking with a good friend about health and well-being.

by NetGalley review

I’m impressed with this book. It’s content is broad and comprehensive, giving women over 40 lots to think about or try. It was interesting to read about the author’s background and experiences and to hear from other practitioners about their practices. I will have to purchase a paper copy as there’s so much information that it’s impossible to remember everything I’ve read. I’d highly recommend this one.

Written by a woman who really knows how women tick, inside & out.

This is my go-to book of knowledge, for everything relating to me, my body and my mind. It's written in a way I can go straight to the topics I want to explore, I refer to it all the time. I bought them for my friends, who say exactly the same thing. Thank you Dr Louise for the must-have book for every woman over 40.

by Dr Justine Hextall

This book is bursting with great advice. I liked the fact that it is broken down into bitesize sections covering all aspects of health and well-being that you can refer back to at anytime. I've already implemented lots of small changes that have made a big difference and I'm sure this book would be a great help to women of any age.
