Fertility and progesterone, a lovely success story

I recently interviewed a 36 year old woman and wanted to share her beautiful story.
It is a story of self-discovery and self-education. It is also the story of the heart-wrenching loss of a newborn, but also, a story of future hope for more children.
Nikki has a 4 year old daughter and a 15 month old son, and they are hoping for another in the future. In between the two she had been pregnant with a baby girl and went into preterm labor …

Bucketlists and an emotional visit to Lourdes

I’m back from Barcelona!
And wanted to share my trip with you. Highlights? Definitely my pilgrimage to Lourdes, where 10 years ago I prayed for a healthy pregnancy. Then there was speaking about women’s sexual health at the Spanish Antiaging Medical Association conference as well as immersing myself and my daughters into a wonderful holistic educational experience…more on all of this below.
You may have thought I was crazy heading out with two of my girls to live in Barcelona for a month.
Seriously I thought …

Resilience and beauty: Alpine Rose stem cells and more youthful skin

“La Vie En Rose. It is the French way of saying, ‘I am looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses.”                          – Audrey Hepburn
Will you look at the world with rose-coloured glasses with me?  It’s the same as looking at the world with the glass half full mentality.  It’s a beautiful way to approach life.  My mother used to say that to me all the time.
Focusing on the positives in life …

Here is a wonderful interview that I absolutely want you to take the time to watch! You will love this!
There are few people that I regard with the high level of respect I have for Dr. Srini Pillay. Maybe it is the authentic and caring way he solves problems and shares solutions; maybe it’s his humbleness, whatever it is, he is an extraordinary man, physician and teacher.

Cooking for hormone balance with Magdalena Wszelaki

Really enjoyed this podcast with Magdalena Wszelaki, the founder of Hormones Balance.
Magdalena talked about the significant health crisis she went through as a result of a highly stressful career in advertising. A high profile and demanding lifestyle, stressful in every way! Mentally stressful, never in the same time zone, lack of sleep, hotel and fast food on the run. This eventually ended in complete adrenal fatigue, autoimmune conditions, estrogen dominance and even depression.
But she was able to heal herself and go into complete …

What men need to know about healthy testosterone levels

Finally it’s the men’s turn!
And yes, estrogen will still be an important topic…even for you men…but let’s start with the male hormone that you are most familiar with, Testosterone.
Low T is a common male issue (which is commonly ignored)
Yes, “Low T” is a very prevalent issue. In a stat that I have from 2011, an estimated 13 million men in the US had Low T issues. I’m sure that stat is much larger today.
Yet, only a handful (5-10%) of men typically …

The whole time I felt frustrated with my inability to feel my best self!
This I know now was because my home was infested with …

Mentally detoxing! Where will you shine your flashlight today?

We’ve been talking for a while now about how important detox is in order to balance hormones and maintain optimal health, and how my Keto-Alkaline™ Diet provides a great foundation for physical detoxification.
Detox, though, is about much more than removing physical toxins from your body and environment.
Today I want to talk about the importance of removing the emotional toxins in your life.
Negative emotions truly can be toxic, and in fact are acidic!
Just ask the women in my hormone reset programs, who quickly learn they can not …
