Going through menopause for some women can be a breeze. But, for the rest of us when our hormone levels are dropping, we can get symptoms. A deficiency of one hormone can trigger a relative excess of another and result in common imbalances such as:
Estrogen dominance or low progesterone can result in mood swings, migraines, fat gain in hips and thighs. Low estrogen or fluctuations of estrogen
t can trigger hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, foggy thinking, memory lapse & vaginal dryness. Low testosterone or DHEA may lead to decreases in bone or muscle mass, metabolism, energy, strength, stamina, exercise tolerance & libido.
High cortisol (produced by the adrenals as a reaction to stressors which could include hormone imbalance) results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired and increased belly fat, whereas low cortisol causes chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery & low immune reserves.
Changes in estrogen and progesterone levels can impact neurotransmitter levels. For instance, a drop in estrogen can result in a drop in serotonin which is you feel good neurotransmitter resulting in more depression or feeling of anxiety. Changes in estrogen levels can also lead to thyroid symptoms like slowed metabolism and always feeling cold. In fact, many women experiencing menopause will be diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
A simple saliva test can determine your levels and a good naturopath can suggest supplements that may alleviate those conditions. You can also take velvet antler which is the tonic used in Asia for menopause that helps correct hormone imbalances. See the website www.4EasyMenopause.com

According to the American Cancer Society 18% of cancers are caused by infection, 23% caused by obesity, 41% environmental and only 5% because of genetics. So if our lifestyles can create the environment inside our bodies to make a happy home for cancer what can we do about it?
We have delved into this a little more on our video blog ” Click Here ” but we’ll give you a few tips here. You must detox your body, especially the colon. Certain herbs can help clean you out such as psyllium, buckthorne, slippery elm, humid acid and casgara. You can also do an olive oil lemon juice cleanse and you can search the Internet to find one of these treatment that works for you. You also must make sure you have a good supply of friendly bacteria in the colon and if you eat poorly or have had chemotherapy, many of those will have been destroyed. You need to repopulate them through a good probiotic supply that contains an assortment of the friendly critters. Our suggestion to check out is: PlusBiotic which can be found by clicking here and then click learn more and select from the product drop down menu to read about it.
Keeping the lymph clean also is a must as it is the main filter for abnormal cells. Herbs that are found in the Essiac tincture available at health food stores are a good way to do this. There are more tips for urinary cleanse and parasite cleanse on the video so check it out. www.AntiAgingLadyNews.com
We are doing a video blog series on www.AntiAgingLadyNews.com about cancer prevention. This is an excerpt from the first session. There is no charge… Please visit our video blog site to access the information.
Everyone has cancer floating in their body. It’s the function of our toxic world and our lifestyles. Our body has cool cells called T-cells that take out cells that don’t look normal to them. Unfortunately sometimes they get confused by the cloaking put on by the cancer cell and don’t do their job. Cancer has main stem cells and daughter cells. If our immune system is strong we can handle the normal amount of cancer cells, but if we don’t do the right things our immune system will go on vacation and cancer will have a field day reproducing. Chemo kills the daughter cancer cells but the cancer stem cell sits there fat and healthy impervious to the drug. So – if you want to prevent the proliferation of your resident cancer cells and prevent tumors so and don’t want to get to the stage where you have to resort to chemo, you can try adding polyphenols to your diet. This interacts with the genes and works on the cancer stem cells weakening them so your immune system can find them and the T-cells can zap them. – more about what polyphenols are on our video blog.
The polyphenols are concentrated in nutritional liquid formula (Daily Metrix) that a friend introduced me to, because I don’t have to take a bazillion vitamin pills anymore… just this one ounce a day liquid gives me everything I need… enzymes, minerals, polyphenols, essential fatty acids, protein, bioflavonoids, joint helpers, heart helpers, fruit, veggies – and its non GMO! check it out: www.longlifenews.com
So what are joints? Joints form the connections between bones. The joints allow our bones to move and are made up of cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bursas which are fluid-filled sacs that help cushion the joint, and the synovial membrane that is the lining of the joint capsule that secretes synovial fluid to lubricate the joint. Any of these parts of the joint can become irritated or inflamed in response to a variety of disorders or conditions including years of exercise. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain.
Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. Knee pain is the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.

There are many causes for our loss of libido or sex drive and some are linked to prescription medications. The antidepressants Prozac, Zoloft, and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) improve mood by raising serotonin, but the downside is that they can also lower libido, says Irwin Goldstein, MD, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego. Beta blockers used for heart problems can also reduce desire. Elavil used to treat shingles can reduce libido as can oral contraceptives. Proscar used to treat enlarged prostate has an active ingredient called finasteride. It is also found in a drug called Propecia which is used to mitigate hair loss in men. Finasteride prevents testosterone from converting into its active form and lower testosterone can lead to lower libido. Antihistamines used for allergies can also lower libido while you are using the drug. Vicodin, OxyContin, and Percocet, used for pain management also have loss of libido as a side-effect. Read the side effects of all prescriptions and ask your doctor or naturopath if there is a safer alternative. Medical Marijuana can also contribute to loss of libido and erectile dysfunction.
Testosterone is needed by both men and to a lesser degree women but levels naturally decline in men starting at age 30 and in women reduced testosterone and virtually nonexistent estrogen levels can occur, lowering libido after menopause To be sure, ask your Doctor to test all of your hormone levels.

Invaders in your body, especially during the spring when everything starts to bloom are not fun. As the immune system produces antibodies and the special white blood cell spring into action they can create inflammation and typical allergic symptoms of sinus problems, coughing, runny noses and people not being happy to have allergies.
A few of the natural things you can use to help offset these unwanted symptoms include quercetin, echinacea, nettles and butterbur. Quercetin is a plant flavanoid that acts as an antihistaminic and antiallergic compound. Studies have shown it effectively reduces histamine release and helped reduce those nasal symptoms that normally make us feel bad. Echinacea is a herb that we normally think of taking when we get a cold as it has been shown to be effective in upper respiratory conditions. It is an immune modulator so may help in regulating over-inflammation. It is not to be taken for a long period of time or the body will adapt and it will be ineffective. Five days is a good length of time.
Another common solution for allergies is taking stinging nettle tea or in a supplement. Studies have shown it also helped rhinitis and allergic symptoms after being used for one week. Butterbur as an herbal extract, also is a good solution for hay fever. It has been shown to reduce histamine release and was more effective than a drug antihistamine which can make you sleepy.
Of course, taking these is a wise move if your allergies are seasonal or intermittent. But, if you have chronic problems it would be wise to get tested to see exactly what is the trigger and deal with it through a good forward-thinking MD or Naturopathic Physician.

Research published in the Journal of British Dermatology reveals a study that showed the sap from milkweed cures non-melanoma skin cancers! The plant substance is effective because of ingenol mebutate, a compound in it that seems to destroy cancer cells. Australian scientists from many medical institutions in Brisbane tested the milkweed sap on humans and found remarkable results. The studies showed a 75% cure rate with no visible scarring.
Now we just have to hope folks don’t grab all the milkweed and leave nothing for the poor Monarch butterflies that depend on it for survival.
