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.

Why is your brain in a fog? You might be hormonally challenged.
If you ever “lost” something you just put down or entered a room and forgot why you went, you have experienced brain fog. It’s common when the sex steroids—specifically estrogen—decline whether that be briefly in the premenstrual period or permanently at menopause or andropause (the male equivalence and yes, male testosterone is converted to estrogen which enhances memory and mental acquity).
Lush hormones keep young brains bright and juicy— neurotransmitters float through a watery matrix to initiate electrical impulses in the brain. When hormones are properly balanced, you can teach an old dog new tricks.
My hormonally challenged patients are often overwhelmed with information at the first consultation, but once we get their hormones harmonized, they retain the “endocrine 101” lecture material well enough to teach their friends about the importance of balanced hormones. Many of my fifty plus patients return to school to pursue graduate degrees, work on their doctorates, even start new careers once their physiology is optimized with individualized combination of bio-identical hormones and nutritional hypothalamic support.
