There's no doubt about it. Women are much more challenged when it comes to their hormonal and overall health than men. In fact, women are four times more likely to have migraines,...

Whenever a woman is considering some form of contraception, her doctor will immediately offer her a smorgasbord of options. Of course, the Birth Control Pill made with a combination of estrogen and progestins will usually be the first recommendation. But, she could also choose an implant called Nexplanon®, a tiny, thin rod about the size of a matchstick that is surgically implanted under the skin of the upper arm, releasing progestin for up to four years. Or, perhaps, she would...

Cynthia had a most embarrassing problem. She just turned 40 years old and suddenly discovered that big changes were happening to her body. Once pleasurable sex with her partner was now causing pain and irritation. She was also getting more frequent urinary tract infections.

Occasionally she would notice some vaginal discharge. Her doctor prescribed antibiotics and recommended a commercial lubricant. But the irritation persisted and so did the vaginal discharge. Needless to say, she...

Millions of women each year seek relief for hormonal issues, including hot flashes, night sweats, hormonal migraines, PMS, ovarian cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts, weight gain, foggy thinking, and heavy bleeding. These symptoms are lumped together into the hormonal imbalance pigeonhole. In the case of menopause, HRT or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the conventional cure. For menstruating women, oral contraceptives are most often...

ALTHOUGH IT CAN BE AN EMBARRASSING TOPIC, the problem of vaginal dryness, thinning of vaginal tissue and lack of lubrication, is often the bane of women's lives. This condition affects the health and quality of life of for women of all ages. Even though many women may be silent about vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy, it is by no means an uncommon condition. As many as 14 million women over the age of 18 have experienced this problem.

In fact, nearly half of all women over...

Hormones are powerful substances. They pack a big wallop considering the tiny amounts that are produced by the endocrine glands. Most hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, insulin and melatonin are made in parts per billion or parts per trillion. Even small hormonal fluctuations can create major physiological changes.

As profound orchestrators of all of life’s processes, maintaining hormonal balance is imperative for...

“Aging is inevitable but growing old is optional.”
What an intriguing thought.

We are used to thinking the body will naturally deteriorate with each passing year. There are even impressive health statistics to support that notion. Achieving the status of aged pensioner brings with it long-awaited retirement benefits, which is the good news. But there is also the bad news; increasing aches and pains, thinning bones and departing memories. What if...

Who doesn’t want, radiant, glowing, wrinkle-free skin? Your skin is an incredible organ with an immense ability to be repaired and rejuvenated! Nourish the skin inside and out, and you can create healthy skin and ageless beauty, no matter your age.

However, our modern world is not particularly skin-friendly. Sugar-laden, processed foods; stress and lack of sleep; sun damage; exposure to air pollution and other toxic chemicals, smoking and alcohol are the real villains that...

In August 1928, Scottish scientist Alexander Fleming made a discovery that would change the course of medicine for the better and the worse. Upon entering his lab, he observed a curious thing occurring in a lone petri dish. At the edge of the dish was a colony of mold, and around it, an area that was totally free of any sign of the common staphylococcus bacteria, which was proliferating everywhere else.

The cultured mold, Penicillium notatum, would be become known as...

Blame it on the genes! For the past 50 years we have been told that our inherited genetic blueprint was the ultimate dice game that Life randomly rolled out for us. For better or worse, we were stuck with those genes.

We have all heard people say: “Cancer [or diabetes or depression or heart disease, etc.] is in my family genes.” We believed that our genetic inheritance put the final stamp not only on our height, eye color, disposition, habits, weight and predisposed...

Xylitol is not only a safe, natural sweetener without the bad side-effects of sugar and artificial substitutes, it’s also good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, and promotes good health.

Americans have a mighty hankering for sugar. It seems that we just can’t get enough of the stuff. On average, a half a cup of sugar is consumed per person every day. It is estimated the average American eats, drinks, slurps, stirs, and sprinkles about 150 pounds of it...

In my 20 years as a health consultant and naturopathic doctor, I have traveled the world in search of the newest and most-compelling research on women’s health. I’ve seen hundreds of “panaceas” come and go. And in all this time, one thing I’ve learned with certainty is there’s no magical silver-bullet formula for balanced health.

I knew from the tension in Rosie’s voice that something was wrong. She phoned me in a panic after her doctor told her that her heavy menstrual bleeding was caused by uterine fibroids. She was hoping to avoid the only option offered to her by her doctor—a hysterectomy.

Fibroids were a complete mystery to Rosie, as they are to many women. I reassured her there were many ways to reduce, if not totally eliminate, fibroids. Before considering a hysterectomy, I encouraged her to...
