Stop Blaming the Hormones

  1. Brenda Lovercheck says:

    Hormones play different roles on different life stage. As I muddle through phases of menopause I have a differing opinion that yes, hormones are to blame. I have always lived a healthy lifestyle with good sleep, fitness, and food. Once menopause starts setting in, it is a whole new level of lifestyle management. Brain fog, weight gain, bitchiness, frequent waking through the night is very real and hormone related. I had to respond to your post to share something pretty fabulous related to hormones. I started hormone replacement pellets. Wow! What a game changer. I feel so much better. It is amazing what a little testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone will do to stabilize an aging woman. I watch doctors throw aging women onto anti depressants rather than look at the hormone issue. It is so frustrating as a mental health professional to see this happen. Another frustration is that health insurance will happily cover anti depressants but won’t cover hormone replacement. I guess that I share to say don’t discount the impact on hormones, as they deplete the symptoms are very real and lifestyle can’t bring them back into your system and there is great treatment out there for women (and men) that may be struggling.

    I am very interested in both what Taryn will be sharing, and Brenda I would like to know more about the hormone pellets. A few years ago, I doctored in Loveland with a woman that did lots of testing and with some hormones I felt so much better. I would like to be back to that state of well-being.

    I’m 53 and in the middle of menopause. I’m so TIRED, like all day, yet I can’t sleep at night. I’m so frustrated with this cycle that I’m in. I used to be high-energy. I’d also like to have my body back! I work out 5-6 times a week. During the summer I bike 15-30 miles a day 4-5 times a week. I have been doing intermittent fasting religiously (lost about 15 lbs) and I’m stuck at my current weight. I really could lose 15 more pounds. I’m seriously thinking about the Wild Health that Taryn mentioned. I’m totally open to all kinds of advice.
