“Would YOU Like Answers to Your Unresolved Health Issues so YOU Can Lead a Happy, FUN Filled Life, Calmly and Confidently?”
About nine years ago I had a little melt down. It happened while we had friends over for a dinner party and I don’t think anyone actually knew what happened that night. But my life changed for ever.
You see, I experienced an internal rage that really scared me. I didn’t act on it but it frightened me and then I noticed it would come and go at various times.
Despite being a nurse, a naturopath and nutritionist, I couldn’t find any answers to explain how I was feeling. I mentioned it to doctors who wanted to start me on anti-depressants but I wasn’t depressed.
I felt lost, over reactive, confused and at times was wondering if I was a hypochondriac.
Then I started researching and learning even more.
I took myself on conferences, I studied on-line courses, I spoke to my mentors. I wanted to find out what was going on in me and what I was feeling out of sorts when everything else in my life was fairly good.
What I was to discover was both frightening but encouraging. I was to discover that many other working mums felt like I did (I know refer to this irritability, anger or rage as the Beast Within). And that many of us have hormone imbalances.
The encouraging news is that there are things you can do that will make a difference to your life. And I would like to share those with you so you too can feel happy and content most of the time and have MORE FUN!
What are hormones and what have they got to do with YOUR life?
Hormones are naturally occurring molecules that your body makes and uses to carry a message from one part of your body to another. Generally it is to create a response in the recipient organ.
Here’s an example:
Imagine you are driving on a highway in the rain and another car skids in front of your car- you need respond quickly. Your body secretes a swag of stress hormones (primarily cortisol, adrenaline, testosterone, insulin and noradrenaline) that target the heart (to beat faster and stronger), the blood vessels (to contract to increase the pressure) and muscles (to release sugar so you can use your muscles quicker and stronger if needed). This way you can slam on the breaks and avoid a potentially life threatening crash. If your body stayed in relax mode you wouldn’t be able to respond quick enough and potentially your cars would collide and you could lose your life.
The stress response is a normal response to potentially deadly situation.
As explained in the previous example the stress response can and does save your life regularly. It is activated when you feel under threat. The problem and subsequent hormone imbalances occur when you feel under threat from every day events.
Every day events such as:
√ Finding a car park when you are running late
√ Seeing your boss about a pay rise
√ Trying to meet your monthly bills and expenses
√ Doing a presentation at work
I am sure there are many others you could add to the list!
I have been working with people as a health practitioner for 26 years and most conditions have hormone imbalances as a causative factor.
These are other common problems you may have experienced from hormone imbalances:
AND POLY CYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME or PCO.
The good news is, with the information I want to share with you, you can take control back over your hormones and your life.
It’s NOT YOUR FAULT!
You might be asking yourself at the moment how come you didn’t know about the negative effects of modern day living, hormone imbalances and the toll it was taking on your body?
The truth of the matter most people don’t think of stress, being busy nor many other physical symptoms as controllable nor understandable. But they are, especially when you understand more about your hormones.
You are not on your own…
Over the past few months I have not been feeling myself, my gut instinct told me my hormones were out of whack and I also felt very tired and run down, I was also suffering from bouts of thrush which was not pleasant L I saw my GP, he ran the usual tests and found nothing wrong and I went with my instincts and saw Sam the health queen (should have done this first before seeing the GP!!) Sam started me on quite a few supplements also and within a week im already starting to feel better. I can’t thank Sam enough for her ongoing support, she is amazing and such a kind and caring person also, thanks Sam!!! Fiona 33 Gold Coast

If you are similar to most women I treat, you are caring, smart and committed to those around you so finding out you have a hormone imbalance can be a bit confronting. Try to learn more about hormones because the more you do, the more you will understand yourself and how to have good balance.
I have loads of free information on this site about hormones, tests you can do from home and programs.
Let me work with your to help you have balanced hormones so you can experience great joy, Happiness And Health!
PS If you suffer with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (or PCOS) then you really should read my information and blogs on working women, high testosterone and stress levels.
