I wrote a new blog post on low testosterone and how this hormone can affect the histamine response. As we move into winter it’s good to know what is working with or against your immune system! Low progesterone and low testosterone both play a role in mast cell activation syndrome which is the medical term for a histamine response. Find out which botanicals have the most evidence for boosting testosterone and why certain therapies might not be for you.

Ovulation is a part of a woman’s cycle that yields many health benefits that are often not spoken about. Do you know when you ovulate? More and more women are tracking their cycle and choosing birth control that allows their hormones to function fully. #womenshealth #womenshormones #ovulation

Women can experience a wide range of symptoms during the phase when hormones are high. We can harness the power of our hormones to go hard at the right time, fuel in a smart way and rest when needed. During PMS, you may have less energy, headaches or digestive symptoms. You will feel more hungry than you did at ovulation. Your mood will change, but there are simple ways of mitigating symptoms without turning them off with the Pill.

Hot flashes and night sweats are fairly common, especially as women go through perimenopause and menopause. These vasomotor symptoms cause changes in skin temperature or colour. Up to 80% of women experience these symptoms at some point and it’s good to pay attention to what the body is saying. #perimenopause #menopause #womenshealth Night Sweats, Hot Flashes, Menopause, Womens Health, Pay Attention, Common, Point

Being a woman is incredible. Women’s hormones show us a lot about our health & our environment. Finally, more research is being done so women can thrive! This hasn’t always been the case. Into the 90’s women were left out of research. The conditions that women impact women have largely been misunderstood. Whether it’s your cycle, fertility, energy or stage of life that is shifting, natural solutions can restore balance. Natural Solutions, Fertility, Restore, Thrive, Stage, Balance, Environment

Pleasure is important. Today a patient asked me what to do because she was in a flare. She asked about restricting her diet. I told her no. Focus instead on feeling good: Social contact, rest/sleep and fun trigger spontaneous healing. She reported back that those were the areas she was actually struggling with the most. Small shifts go a long way towards supporting balance. For some people it’s movement and exercise that’s missing. For many it’s connection.

We need to stay connected.  Oxytocin is released when we feel close, are in touch with a loved one or orgasm.  Powerful chemical messengers allow us to stay strong through adversity.  Having worked with many communities that faced some of the worst challenges I noticed how humour was one of their best medicines.  It is mine.   .  .  .

Let’s talk about natural detox. Especially for women with heavier cycles and those who have taken oral contraceptives, there is likely can be hormones building up when they should be cleared.  Our livers are responsible for clearing hormones through the bile and into the gut.  Birth control is a factor that disrupts the gut.  Many women are on oral contraceptives to ‘balance’ hormones but this is not what’s happening.  In fact, it's creating more issues.

Get comfortable with menstruation.  We can learn so much from our cycles!  I ask all my patients about the colour, amount and length of their cycle.  Alongside dark red can be indicating pain or stagnation.  Clotting can be lessened with specific nutrients.  Thanks for the super helpful graphic @duvetdays!
