Hormone Balancing – A Blue Sky of Possibilities for You

“Measure twice, cut once!” This is timeless advice for a tailor or a carpenter. We’ve all heard this expression and maybe we’ve used it. But what does it say about the way people think?

It says that we all spend twice as much time and effort worrying about making a mistake than we do just going ahead and doing the right thing in the first place. This is, in fact, the way the human mind works. Whether it’s about cutting a plank, playing a game of cards, or cheering on our favorite team, psychologists have proven that we all hate losing much more than we enjoy winning!We choose to focus on the negative!

What’s this got to do with hormones? If you’re new to the idea of balancing your hormones as you age, then you may experience that “fear of losing” tendency and instead just tiptoe around all the good news and avoid making a decision. Don’t wander away from choosing a better path!  Explore instead the wonderful lifelong benefits of bioidentical hormones! If your hormones aren’t right, then you’re not right!

Searching for reasons to avoid enriching your hormones and enriching your life keeps you “looking at the ground” rather than looking up at a sky full of great possibilities. For example, if you vacation at the beach, you don’t stay indoors all day because you worry about sunburn – you take proper precautions and good advice and enjoy life to the fullest in the sunshine. When you go snow skiing, you don’t stay indoors because of the cold – you choose the joy, exhilaration and beauty of the slopes even if your nose gets red!

The same thinking applies to hormone balancing – be informed, work with professionals and their good advice, and then get your hormones restored. Life rewards action! Get up and go! Get more life out of life – get much more vitality and sunshine out of life. Don’t choose your worries! Choose yourself and your dreams!

Top 7 Quotes from Women with Hormone Issues Before Menopause

Yes, many women who have hormone issues are premenopausal. “You’re just getting older and this is part of it,” is not the explanation you have to accept!

It’s about to be Mother’s Day. If you are a mother, you know that like every other day of the year, your focus – even on your day – is on everyone else. You want to make sure things go just as planned.

Do yourself this one favor: take a moment to read this post. These quotes are from women like you and they might sound strangely familiar…

1. “Something is not right. I am just not me. I can’t put my finger on it. I have seen numerous doctors and nurse practitioners who do all sorts of labs and other tests. When they let me know the results, they say that everything is fine, but I’m not fine.”

Maybe the people around you keep reassuring you that you’re healthy. Maybe some people have made you think it’s all in your head. Or perhaps you’re beginning to question your own ability to assess yourself.

2. “I don’t hate sex, but I don’t care if it ever happens again. It makes me sad to realize that I might feel that way for the rest of my life. I’m not sure I’m ready to give up intimacy forever.”

Some of you might have had fights with your partner about this. Maybe they think that you are no longer interested in them or that you are interested in someone else. Or maybe you have just lost your interest altogether.

3. “I’m not the energetic, outgoing person I used to be. I’ve lost my fun side. I’m moody, irritable, angry, and sad. And on certain days I have all of those emotions within 10 minutes!”

Maybe you’ve tried or been encouraged to try antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications.

4. “My mind is not sharp like it was. I feel like I’m in a brain fog. Focusing is nearly impossible. Other people remember things so much better than I do. I feel like I’m that spacey girl I used to make fun of all the time.”

Maybe you’ve tried or been encouraged to try medications like adderall.

5. “I’ve lost my motivation for everything I used to really care about. I don’t want to see my friends or go to events. I just want to hide at home.”

Maybe someone has recommended that you talk with a counselor.

6. “Exercising is a huge chore. I feel exhausted rather than recharged when I do it. I never see any results from it anyway.”

Maybe you have tried a personal trainer or signed up for a new fitness program. Maybe you’ve looked at bootcamp programs around town or downloaded a new phone app to hold you accountable.

7. “I have not changed any of my good eating habits, in fact I’m eating healthier than I used to, but I am putting on weight, especially in my mid-section. I give up!”

Maybe you’ve looked at or tried every diet online – low carb, low fat, gluten-free, paleo, organic – without any result.

You owe it to yourself to consider where hormones might fit in this picture. You want the best version of yourself to come back. Are you willing to investigate this a little further?
