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.

held tester (not expensive) to make sure your outlet is properly grounded. If you don’t feel comfortable with that, he says you can hire a professional electrician starting at about $100 and have them switch out your existing outlet and install a ground fault outlet that has a trip switch (they are only about $15). This switch would be an added safety measure if it makes you feel better about it. The “purists” say you need to run your cord outside and attach to a simple grounding rod in the ground. You can do this (following the directions on your grounding equipment) or have a professional electrician do it for you. (It's not overly expensive.) Our electrician did say if you decided to run it outside, that is not a problem but you do have to make sure there are no other elec- trical sources close by like cable lines, underground electrical lines, etc. He said you can call 811 and they will come out and spray paint where your lines are. Aaron Rodgers and the Tour de France Team don’t have time

to walk around barefoot outdoors every day, so they sleep on indoor grounding mats. If indoor grounding seems more than you can feel comfortable with at first, start simply and start outdoors. Earthing outdoors has multiple benefits, between the sun helping your body produce Vitamin D, exercise, the fresh air, the trees and animals uplifting your mood, and of course the Earth’s en- ergy flowing into you, consider incorporating earthing into your health practices, spending some time with your shoes OFF and connected to mother Earth. You may be amazed at the benefits and decide you’d like more of them that all of earthing and ground- ing (whether indoor or outdoor) can offer.
