Why Is Mid-life Mooching Your Mojo?
7pm ET – 4 pm PT
I was too old for a paper route, too young for social security,
and too tired for an affair.

Join me on Wednesday, July 29 when the Hormone Goddess meets the Mojo Goddess… It will be a wild ride….
I have been perusing Dr. Labbe’s blog called Mojo Girlfriends what a hoot – but most importantly what great information.
Excerpt below is from Dr. Labbe’s blog… check this out… if you are experiencing “menopause” it could by your thyroid, according to Dr. Labbe.
Let’s not forget – menopause is the label and the diagnosis. The real issue is hormone imbalance… endocrine imbalance… most women are endocrinally whacked by the time they get to menopause. Years of synthetic hormones, pregnancies without replacing nutrients… and most of all living in a testosterone world that goes against the grain of our endocrine/hormone/menstrual cycle which is based on cyclical rhythms. And these are my words.
Oh yes, the Mojo Goddess and the Hormone Goddess will have a lot to say on this topic. And by the way… the book is an excellent read.
The transition into menopause can take ten or more years and be a wildly unpleasant ride at times. Challenging? Yes. But, Mojo Girlfriends™, don’t let mid-life Mooch your Mojo. Instead, embrace this time as a wakeup call to win back your confidence, energy, and decisiveness. Don’t believe the myth that you are too young, too old, or too late to feel good.
Why Is Mid-Life Mooching Your Mojo? is a fun and informative look at how your levels of thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, neuro transmitters and sex hormones affect your brain and body. In plain English, Dr. Joni Labbe offers powerful, science-based nutritional therapy and lifestyle solutions to ease the mid-life transition, reclaim your Mojo, and restore yourself to vibrant health.
This revolutionary book explains where your mojo went and gives you the tools and knowledge to get it back!
