Empowering Women with Wisdom for Hormone Harmony©

This blog is dedicated to all the women who have ever experienced a hormone fluctuation– from puberty to menopause; to the generations of women who have died because we have forgotten the source of our being… and to our daughters who will survive because we will have finally remembered.

The Holy Hormones Journal is filled with news articles, press releases, commentaries and research papers, on all the various issues that affect women’s health. These resources have been compiled over many years from many different sources. It is probably one of the best libraries available to medical consumers and all those concerned about women’s health care.

In order for women to make informed decisions about their health they need to have information, resources and data from credible sources that reflect current health trends. All too often issues that affect women do not make headline news; most days, articles on women’s health issues do not even make the first 10-pages of a publication. Some articles may appear in one part of the country – or world for that matter, and not in another. The information that women receive about their health is inconsistent at best.

This Journal is for women of all ages; so that we can become empowered by who we are, and not victimized by lack of menstrual health education or medical misinformation so common in our media driven culture. It is amazing to realize just how long some of these women’s health issues have been surfacing, and resurfacing, and resurfacing, without apparent resolution; but usually with another layer of  confusion, that sometimes leads to more unfounded fear.

We encourage our readers to do their own research. If you find any news that you feel is pertinent to women’s health – either add the article as a comment, or use our contact form and send it to the Holy Hormones Journal so we can post it. It is important that women inform each other about these medical issues so that we will finally have the information we need to make sound decisions about our health and well being. Let’s make women’s health education a collective issue.

To make it easier for those seeking more information, articles and comments are categorized by topic and also by date. Use our site’s search box to find thousands of articles concerning women’s health issues in America and around the world.  Some of the articles are contradictory… that is a sign of our times. It is our practice to post articles on both sides of an issue, so that women have the information they need to make their own decisions.  We encourage our visitors to keep checking back – or subscribe to the RSS Feed on this site – and receive the Hormone News in an email format.

This site also focuses on the relationship between the menstrual cycle and other natural cycles that govern this planet.  In order for women to understand the foundation of our true selves – we need to realize that we are the fount – the beginning of all of life on this planet – we have a place – a destiny and purpose – and because of our cycling hormones – we are Goddesses and nothing less.
