Women's Health
A woman's life is one of change: puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, motherhood, child rearing, perimenopause and menopause. During these stages of life, a woman's state of health is influenced greatly by her hormonal balance.

In past societies, each phase of a woman's life was celebrated by her whole tribe who shared in the events. In today's Western society, the aging celebration has been replaced with a continuum of griping and grumbling. Who wants to look forward to feeling awful; hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, depression, loss of libido, headaches and irregular menses any of which may plague a woman for years.

A change of life cannot be avoided but how a woman experiences these changes can be influenced by knowing what her body is telling her and how to interpret the information.

Breast Health Awareness
Breast tissue is delicate; the breasts are like the "canary in the coal mine." They can tell us what is going on in our environment. The breasts are connected to many systems of the body and breast tissue is particularly responsive to estrogen and progesterone which are hormones produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands.

The proper balance of estrogen and progesterone is not only essential for maintaining healthy breast tissue, it is also important that the estrogen receptor sites are available for natural estrogen to bind. Today's environment is polluted with synthetic estrogens called "Xenoestrogens" which are found in herbicides, pesticides and petroleum by-products such as plastics. They are also found in make-up, hair care and skin care products. These synthetic estrogen mimickers may cause havoc to a woman's health if they bind onto the estrogen receptor sites.

Screening for changes in breast tissue is an essential component of being proactive. Traditional screening methods such as mammography, ultra sound, breast self-examination and MRI's are looking for "structural changes" in breast tissue. Computerized Digital Infrared Thermography, another screening tool, assesses "functional changes" which occur before any tissue structural change takes place.

Prenatal & Postnatal Nutrition & Care
Prenatal Nutrition and Care

Bringing a child into the world is an important decision, one that affects not only the health of the baby but also the mother. Ideally, prenatal care should begin when one decides to have a baby. This includes preparing the body physically and the mind mentally.

No two new mothers are alike as their body chemistries are different and their health needs vary. For this reason, my recommendations for care are "mom specific."

Once pregnant, good nutrition along with a regime of recommended supplements help ensure both baby and mom are healthy. These elements also help to meet the changes in a new mothers dietary demands as well as supporting the pregnancy including delivery and lactation and the growth and development of the fetus. Along with good nutrition, I recommend reflexology and massage therapy for relaxation and comfort throughout each trimester of pregnancy.

Post Natal Care
It takes three years for a woman's body to recover from pregnancy, delivery and lactation. The early months of postpartum recovery can be a rollercoaster of emotions, energy and physical recovery. Tissues have to heal, muscles have to strengthen and hormones have to rebalance all while caretaking for the demands of a newborn. Proper nutrition is important for ensuring good development of a newborn's brain and nervous system, immune system and skeletal system. A strong, proactive immune system supported by proper nutritional supplementation helps to avoid allergy symptoms in a young child.

Perimenopause & Menopause
Perimenopausal changes may start occurring as early as age thirty-five. These changes, usually starting three to six years before the last period, are a result of wildly shifting hormones. The feeling is like going through puberty all over again.

Perimenopause is when most of the dramatic symptoms occur. By the time a woman reaches menopause, the body has adjusted to the changes and symptoms mellow.

Every woman will go through hormonal fluctuations such as high estrogen, low progesterone or low estrogen and high progesterone or perhaps a deficiency of both; it cannot be avoided. Like pregnancy, you have to go through the pains of change, but in the end, you have a new beginning.

Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and depression are a message from the hormones saying they are not in correct balance. The majority of women who experience mild to moderate symptoms may just require an adrenal and /or thyroid check along with a change in lifestyle and natural choices in supplements to help the body rebalance.

The changing years of a woman's life should not be a dreaded part of her life's journey, but instead, a time to embrace and celebrate the wisdom and lives she has touched through her maternal gifts.
