Estrogen balance

Anti-aging, the skin! We're on it!!!

ANTI-AGING, we're talking about the skin this time!
I am all for it...naturally of course. 
I have several daughters. I spent some time with them this last week and we started talking about skin, wrinkles, premature aging and the rest. The fact is, we ARE going to age, thankfully so as the alternative isn't all that great. The goal here would be to do it in the least painful way possible. 
 
For my age, and I am eternally 59 at this point, I have pretty good skin. So because my daughters are interested in MORE anti-aging info, I thought to share some of what is out there, at least what I have available right now.

Depression.... THERE IS HELP!

After this month of mourning due to our loss of Robbin Williams, I thought we would hit thisDEPRESSIONtopic.

Feelings of worthlessness, self loathing, unloved
Feeling trapped 
Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
Loss of interest in daily activities/ no zest for life

Sleep changes/sleeping beyond normal times, not sleeping
Anger or irritability
Reckless behavior.

Have a toxic Brain?

In the family we have had an accident which I am not ready to able talk about just yet. But lets say it was an accident and there was brain injury/trauma. So I have been dealing with brain issues for a month or what feels like a lifetime. I have learned soooo much!

Lately, I have been seeing lots and lots of TOXINS and toxins in the brain. So where do these toxins come from? I think mostly life. There are some we can avoid, some we should avoid and others we need to just deal with.

What can we avoid?

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Pick your FIX!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 
Well, we are planning one aren't we?
So now it becomes official, the New Year is here! 
You know for sure because all the diet stuff is being advertised.There are 'new' diets, 'new' foods you should put into your diet, 'old' foods you should never put into your diet, new exercise programs and then the list just gets longer.

We all know if we just do all that is on the list we will live long and healthy lives…. just like last year… right?
 

Estrogen, dominance and weight....oh, no!

Thought we could touch on the hormones and weight issues. This could be a LOOOOONNNNGGGGG post.
We admit life wouldn't be very interesting without the hormones flowing through it. But if they get out of whack, it is like a fine orchestra whose violin section never tuned up for the event! YOU WILL NOTICE!

For women and some men, we do see estrogen dominance. There is a litany of info all over the net about the symptoms of estrogen dominance. There are studies implying many our fertilizers are hormone based, anti-biotics (many are also hormone based), and various packaging of products (think BPA) increases the estrogen factors in the body.
