Has Your Local Integrative Doctor Stopped Working with Bio-Identical HRT?

It’s like a mental shorthand for, “I am giving you space to feel your feelings and I acknowl- edge that I don’t need to take them on as my own by getting triggered by your discomfort. This too shall pass.” Similarly, “How interesting” is another way to notice what is happening while creating space for you to stay neutral and not get enmeshed in any negativity. For example, perhaps your adult step-daughter is letting her

4-year-old eat only bread at dinner and then eat 6 cookies for dessert. Where before you might have gotten upset, thinking that this was a terrible way to raise a child, instead now you can say to yourself, “How interesting”. It can be mental shorthand for, “This is none of my business, it’s not my child, it is no reflection on me, and if she wants my child rearing advice she will ask for it.” The mantra keeps you calm and centered instead of fuming for the next few days over what you consider to be terrible moth- ering skills. When you don’t resist what is happening and allow it to just be, you are coming from a place of personal power.

Your Inner Mantra Your inner mantra is a statement that counterbalances your most common mental meltdown. You know the one that always pops up when things go sideways. Take a moment to listen to that familiar criticism and then choose what you want to believe instead.

So, if according to your inner critic your weight is the reason

for every bad thing in your life, then create the mantra, “I am happy with my body just as it is.” If how you handle money is your persistent worry then try on, “I have everything I need to live abundantly.” If you wake up in a cold sweat from a reoccur- ring nightmare about being a life-long spinster and dying alone then repeat, “I am available to give and receive great love.” Your mantra is an individualized, authentic expression that

brings you back to your center. From this place of power you are able to act rather than react, making you an agent of change in your own life.

Repeating these personal mantras open up your ability to access the peace and contentment always available to you in the present moment. So, try these mantra’s on or create some new ones for yourself. The important thing is to have a touchstone to keep you centered on your personal power when daily life throws you a curveball.

Struggling with Menopause? Overcome it with BHRT.

Local, experienced and taking new patients.

atural hormone replacement therapy corrects the loss of our hormones that comes through aging and menopause. The term "natural hormone" means the bioidentical hormone our bodies make, and not synthetic ones made by the pharma- ceutical 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 and vascular disease, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer's, 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 sex drive, loss of general muscle mass, in- creased abdominal obesity, osteoporosis, decrease in mental acuity, and decreased strength and endurance. And, yes, tes- tosterone levels should be tested in women, as well. Testoster- one therapy can reverse the gradual sexual apathy that occurs over time, while also increasing energy, and strength.
