Hormones in Harmony

Living abundant joy through bio-psycho-spiritual balancing

Location: Ojai, California, United States

Welcome to Hormones in Harmony where I shall share pearls of wisdom gathered over two decades of consulting with the hormonally challenged. As a holistic nurse practitioner specializing in neuro-immune-endocrinology, I have merged my western education with eastern philosophies, but the key to being a successful healer is to embody physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. At 54, married for 32 years with two grown children, I strive to keep my Hormones in Harmony with a positive attitude, a loving environment, and faithful consumption of Genesis Gold.

When my mother complained that she’d rather have uterine cancer than suffer with depression induced by synthetic hormones, I searched for natural alternatives. Thus began my coronation as The Hormone Queen. Women began flocking to my practice for botanically derived bio-identical hormones to harmonize their imbalanced systems. Like fine tuning a musical instrument, I experimented with different doses and delivery systems. The transdermal creams made by experienced compounding pharmacists worked like a charm for the majority of my patients and for the rest sublingual troches provided relief.
In the mid-nineties, I got lots of experience helping patients with root chakra issues—ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, menstrual irregularities, infertility, cervical dysplasia— and became so adept at inserting and removing Norplant contraceptive devices that for a few years I was known as the Contraceptive Queen. Although my practice has expanded to include treating every known hormonal imbalance, root chakra issues are so common that it’s often the first issue that must be addressed. And it isn’t just imbalanced women who come to me for help but men suffering from prostatitis, erectile dysfunction, and more subtle signs of testosterone deficiency. Truth be told, there isn’t enough bio-identical hormones to dip these patients in if they are unwilling to accept the psycho-spiritual nature of their ailment. So I spend a lot of time counseling my patients.
Like the other day a perimenopausal woman recently diagnosed with uterine fibroids came to me for alternative therapies. We discussed her options—natural progesterone to balance the estrogen dominance, Ic3 indoles to enhance less inflammatory estrogen metabolism and healthy doses of Coenzyme Q 10—but only when I suggested that the fibroids mirrored her recent hibernation of creative energies did the true healing begin. She broke down and cried. (Kleenex is a precious commodity in my office)
The recognition of how her beliefs had influenced her health was the first step in releasing the congested energies. We ended the session by expressing gratitude for the wisdom of her body in showing her soul the way towards healing.
