First and foremost, I am a woman, just like you. I have struggled though various assults to my body, mind and spirit and have triumphed again and again. It just so happens that I am also a professional communicator who loves making complicated subjects easy to understand. Once I learn how to navigate a system or how to manage a process or how to solve a problem, you can be sure I will share what I know so nobody else will have to struggle the way I did.
When I talk about hormone issues, you can be assured that I completely understand what you are going through. When I talk about optimizing your health or preventing and fighting diseases that can compromise your health or even take your life, know that I have faced the same kinds of choices and live happily and vibrantly with decisions that often run counter to conventional medical wisdom.
I will never describe solutions that I am not prepared to implement myself. But I also respect your perspectives and strongly encourage you to investigate any solutions on your own and make up your mind based on all the best advice you feel you need from your healthcare team and other sources.
Having faced my own mortality and been given the gift of time, I am now enjoying a wonderful transformation. Life 2.0 is filled with myriad fascinating lessons for me, the most important among them being: (1) Live in the moment...explore every beautiful facet of it and savor it fully; and (2) Each of us has real power...to control destiny and to make a difference.
Wishing you many beautiful moments...
