Look for Love in the Eyes of Your Neighbor To love your neighbor as yourself doesn’t

mean to love them in your old singular way, but rather to love them as an extension of the universal love. The mirage of individuation often deludes us into thinking we are separate; yet if you approach your neighbor as just another wave in the same ocean, you acknowledge the oneness that connects you. With that perspective, you can actually love your neighbor as yourself.

Be Love Through Your Reactions As you go through your day stuff happens: pressures mount,

your kids are fighting, someone cuts you off in traffic, the news on the TV is all bad, and your spouse did that thing you hate, again! Believe me I get it. These things happen, that is an absolute certainty, and you can’t control that. How you react is what is in your control. Adopting an “Only Love” mantra will bring intentionality to

your reaction. Pause and think about the most loving way you can be towards yourself and others in these stressful situations. “Only Love” generates compassion, empathy, calmness, tranquil- ity, kindness, and even humor in these situations. So, when pressures mount talk to yourself with the voice of kindness. Instead of thinking of all the things that could go wrong, turn instead to focus on what amazing things could happen. When your kids are fighting, “Only Love” infuses humor into the situa- tion. When that driver cuts you off send out love and compassion for the stress they are experiencing. When the news is all bad on TV instead of getting worked up, remain calm as you send love to that war-torn area or to that politician that really used to bug you.

And when your spouse does that thing for the hundredth time,

turn your expectations into appreciations. Pass over that specific act and turn your mind to all the wonderful ways they contribute to your life.

Commit to “Only Love” Break out the post-it notes and decide that this month’s man-

tra is “Only Love”. Post it on your mirror, your computer, and your car dashboard. When you feel the rising tide of stress well up within, look at your reminder and deeply breath in “Only Love” and exhale “Only Love”. Do that 3-4 times and you will create a new response that is infused with your true essence.

This Valentine’s Day my wish for you is that you are sur- rounded and sustained by your own divine love.

NATURAL Hormone Replacement Therapy

hormone our bodies make, and not synthetic ones made by the pharmaceutical industry, which can be harmful as well as helpful. With replacement, patients report an increase in their psy- chological well being. PMS symptoms can be resolved, not uncommonly, in weeks. The medical benefits are a decrease in cardiac disease, vascular disease, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and even cancers. Because our goal is to return hormone levels to an optimal range, we test the following for any deficiencies: Thyroid hormone, which regulates temperature, metabo-


lism, cerebral function, and energy levels. It can protect against cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, memory loss, fatigue and weight gain. DHEA, which stimulates the immune system, can restore

sexual vitality, improves moods, and decreases cholesterol and body fat. It improves memory, increases energy, and has anti- cancer properties by enhancing the immune system. Melatonin, which influences the quality and quantity of sleep, is also an energizer, a mood enhancer, and an antioxidant. It has also been shown to decrease the incidence of nocturia (getting up at night to urinate). Estrogen, has been proven to reduce the effects of heart

disease, stroke, high cholesterol, Alzheimer's disease, memory loss, menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, skin thinning, the incidence of depression, and reverse the lack of libido. Progesterone, which acts as an antidepressant, mild tranquil-

izer, and natural painkiller. Bioidentical progesterone can elimi- nate symptoms of menopause, PMS emotional instability, headaches, and mood swings. Testosterone, which drops significantly in men over age 50.

This lowered level accounts for a loss of a man's sense of well- being, decrease in decrease in sex drive, loss of general muscle mass, increased abdominal obesity, osteoporosis, decrease in mental acuity, and decreased strength and endurance. And, yes, testosterone levels should be tested in women, as well. Testos- terone therapy can reverse the gradual sexual apathy that occurs over time, while also increasing energy, and strength.

atural hormone replacement therapy corrects the loss of our hormones that comes through aging and menopause. The term "natural hormone" means the bioidentical
