Life really is about balance.
Raising a family is hard. Creating an atmosphere of health in your home is even harder and can be completely overwhelming. Organic or not organic, what supplements do kids need, teenagers, adults? Raising a family using holistic health practices has taught me alot. As a holistic pharmacist I know what to do but have to also decide what I "can" do while working, being a taxi and wife. Choosing supplements for you and your family is tough. Let me help you make it simple and affordable.
I have spent 25 years figuring it out so you don't have to.
At some point all of us will experience hormone imbalance, leading to sleep issues, mood changes, irritability and fatigue. Don't let your hormones affect your life in a negative way. Estrogen dominance is a real issue. We are exposed to so many estrogenic compounds in our environment. This can lead to an imbalance in the ratio of our progesterone and estrogen.
Excess estrogen relative to progesterone can cause increased irritability, crying, anger and more. We don't always need prozac! You may just need to address what is going on hormonally. This can happen during menopause or any other time in our lives.
Progesterone is a beautiful hormone. Designed perfectly to balance our estrogen. Progesterone is the "calming" part of our hormone system so you can imagine how you may feel when it is low. Heavy, painful periods can also be related to too much estrogen and not enough progesterone.
There are herbs you can take to help with progesterone levels. You can also use natural progesterone cream if you levels are low. It is best to test levels 5-10 days before your period. I have developed a protocol for raising progesterone levels naturally involving B vitamins, herbs and progesterone cream if needed. Email me if you would like more information about my custom protocols.
Stress and your adrenal
We all deal with stress. Over time stress can begin to have a negative impact on our health. Eating right, getting sleep, deep breathing are all things you can do to negate the effects of stress. Often times we need to supplement our system to remain balanced and not feel tired, irritable, sick or worn down.
Everything's better with a good night's sleep. Well I am here to tell you that life will get in the way of sleep. Babies, sick children, work stress, aging & hormone imbalance can all wreak havoc on our sleep. Our bodies repair while we are sleeping, your liver, gallbladder and adrenals all need a good night's rest to be ready for the next day. Don't let lack of sleep affect your help. There are many products on the market for sleep but how do you choose? I can help with product selection based on your body chemistry and stress level. Sleep hygiene is also important, I can't change your habits but I can suggest some changes.
