MENTAL HEALTH, PHYSICAL PROBLEMS AND YOUR HORMONES

In my previous blog, I explained how your mental health can be affected by your Hormones being imbalanced. This week I want to discuss hormonal results, case studies,  natural remedies and give you a basic, initial test. Over the last two years I’ve been doing surveys and case studies of women and their hormones. Just over 100 women have completed my online survey about their hormones.   I find it fascinating to see the results, of the most common symptoms due to imbalanced hormones and the most common hormones that become imbalanced. Here are my findings – based on the images below: If you look at the image and table below, it shows that more women between the ages of 30-40 were worried abo

A SMALL ANXIETY RELIEF TIP

A tennis ball isn’t just a dog’s best friend!

YOUR ENGINE IS HOT!

There’s this fantastic metaphor written by Harish Mahotra about a stress burnout that I would like to share with you today: If you work nonstop for 10, 12 or 14 hours, your stress level rises. Your engine overheats. You ignore the signs of stress like increased irritability, short temper, extramarital affairs, lack of patience, and an increased consumption of coffee, cigarettes, or alcohol. Finally, you have professional burnout. When you drive a car too long in hot weather, its engine may overheat. If unattended, the engine can catch fire.
