Are You Experiencing Hormone-Related Anxiety and Depression?
Feeling Out of Control?
Are you experiencing insomnia, racing thoughts, nausea, stomach problems, mood swings, depression, panic attacks, or anxiety? Do you feel like you are living in a dark hole in your mind and you do not know how to get out?
Hormone imbalance is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions today. Most doctors diagnose isolated events – then treat the symptoms. But the root cause is often circadian rhythm disorders, nutrient depletion, and imbalance due to environmental endocrine disruption.

Personalized Educational Hormone Health Coaching
So many women have posted their concerns about hormone-related anxiety and requesting personal counseling that I am offering personalized educational coaching to those who want to know more about hormone health; anxiety, mood swings, weight gain, depression, and phobias. This also includes those suffering from withdrawal symptoms coming off of Depo Provera and other synthetic hormone suppressants.
I will guide you to a deeper understanding of the power you have in your life by simply understanding and trusting your cyclical hormonal changes.
Disclaimer: Consultations are educational and not meant to be a substitute for medical care. If you have a medical or emotional problem, see your physician or other health care practitioner in your area. Medical insight does not diagnose illness nor does it prescribe specific medical treatment. You should only make medical decisions in a trusting relationship with your health care professional. Patients should work with their medical practitioners to examine for themselves what problems, relationships, habits, and situations are in their lives that contribute to disease and what medicinal, herbal and nutritional solutions are available to create health.
Honoring the Power of the Hormone Cycle
Did you know that keeping in step with your menstrual cycle can add years to your life?
Somehow that vital piece of information was never shared with you and after years of living out of sync with your endocrine rhythm you are probably suffering from hormone imbalance ranging from depression, anxiety, and fatigue to more serious physical conditions that only worsen as you age.
“While most women hardly need to be told that their hormone cycle affects their body; few of us suspected it could make the difference between life and death. But research with breast cancer patients is starting to suggest that scheduling a patient’s surgery according to her cycle may increase her chances of being cured. And that’s just the most prominent example to emerge from a small but growing exploration of the relationship between women’s monthly hormonal changes and common illnesses, ranging from migraines to irritable bowel syndrome.”
~ Catherine Gifford “Lifesaving News about Your Period,” McCalls, July 1993
Did anyone ever tell you to read this on page 458,594 in the Women’s Manual? No. All they told you was blah, blah, blah, blah it’s all in your head. But you can read “When Women are Most Disease Resistant” on page 55 in my book, Understanding Your Mind, Mood, and Hormone Cycle.
Sad, as it is – many of our symptoms actually are all in our head – in our brain from the breakdown of the blood-brain barrier, lack of vital micronutrients combines with the suppression the hypothalamus (the womb of the brain), due to hormonal contraceptives. Think of it this way – the emotions you are experiencing are the expression of a brain that is not functioning optimally.
You can also surmise that currently, the neuro-endocrine-immune system is not communicating effectively to balance the other systems in the body. These mechanisms influence your mind, moods, and behaviors – and will define you if the imbalance is not resolved.
Our bodies are comprised of an exquisite network of communication, and functioning properly, provides us with a sense of peace and well-being. The communication network is a transfer /relay of signals from the brain through the nervous system to every cell in the body.
Not only is our body communicating internally with every cell, but it is also receiving communication signals from external stimuli, interpreting those signals and forwarding that information through the nervous system to be received by every cell in every muscle and organ in the body.
Would you like to have more information on how synthetic birth control, chronic stress and your demanding lifestyle may be contributing to your feelings of anxiety?
Would you like to know how you can achieve health and inner-peace with knowledge of how your body functions and how to access tools to heal the source of the imbalance?
