Hormone therapy can be whatever it takes to make you feel good.
I want to share with you an excerpt from my book, a personal story that changed my view of hormones and hormone therapy.
When I was in my early 40’s and my second marriage had ended, I moved to Charleston, SC where I live today. I was excited to be in a new town that I thought would be open to my holistic approach to health, which at the time turned out to not be the case but that’s another story.
Events can happen in our lives, sometimes ones that we don’t expect, especially when we’re not looking for them. In my case, I met my soul mate, a totally unexpected relationship. Up until that point, I didn’t really know if there was such a thing as a soul mate and to tell you the truth I really didn’t care. I was content living my life and having a man in it was not on my agenda at the time.
Much to my surprise, while I was in this relationship, I started having thoughts and feelings that I had forgotten existed. And there were some I had never experienced before. I could feel the switch turn on and the hormones started pumping in overdrive. All those hormones that had been lying there dormant for many years popped right into action. The cortisol and adrenaline gave me a boost (they are good in the right amounts). Then all the sex steroid hormones- estrogen, progesterone and testosterone came back to life. It was as if they were saying the time is right. Who knew that could happen?
You know that feeling. You have extra energy; you don’t require much sleep; you walk around with a bounce in your step. There’s a smile on your face and you have that butterfly feeling in your gut.
It was that feel good all over feeling you want to last forever that I was experiencing back then.
When your life is good, the hormones are good and the whole world is a better place. Unfortunately, sometimes it can end as quickly as it starts…..
Excerpts from Article
Now, I can look back and know this was an experience for me to learn the true meaning of hormones and Real Hormone Therapy. It was a lesson in holistic hormonal health, which encompasses the connection between the mind, body and soul.
It is the reason I know hormone imbalance is an opportunity for you to take charge of your health, get in touch with who you really are, know what is important to you, evaluate what you really want in your life and live your life on purpose. It is a journey of the soul.
