I’ve totally been there, feeling like nothing works. I struggled with weight loss and horrible skin after the birth of my daughter (which was embarrassing as I was on a very good diet being a nutritionist) . You probably feel me on this one: the doctor told me that weight loss is just a case of simple math—that all it takes is to “eat less and exercise more” and gave me a toxic cream for my skin. I got so angry, I am just one of the women all over that feel bad being told this BS, i.e. that they just need more self-control when it comes to weight loss. It is totally wrong!
In addition to helping us manage stress, cortisol performs ALL KIND of tasks in the body. It is highly anti-inflammatory, which is why people take prednisone (a synthetic corticosteroid medication) or get cortisone shots when they are in pain or why cortisone creams are used to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It works by preventing the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. But we all know there can be too much of a good thing, what happens when your cortisol goes crazy?

Healthy changes can mean many things, but for seniors, it often means finding ways to stay safe and injury-free during those post-retirement years. Improving your quality of life by eating right, exercising, and reducing stress can have far-reaching effects, including helping you find happiness and new social bonds, and you may even find a new hobby.
Everyone is on a diet nowdays! Now I have a question. Why so many of them fail? And my dear, I know the answer to that - What works for me often does not work for you or anyone else!
As usual, I research any tool I add in your toolbox when it comes to balancing our hormones and helping you to have a life free of annoying symptoms. Like all of you, I've been hearing about CBD oils for what feels like years, but is it all just hype? I always want to dig deep and get to the bottom of whether or not something can really help ladies like you and me. What I learned about how CBD products effect our hormones surprised me.
