Slaying the Menopause Dragon
A common theme for women everywhere
Menopause. Why don’t they call it menostop? Has anyone ever stopped to think what that word means? The dictionary defines menopause as the time period in which a woman’s menstrual cycle comes to an end, providing an age range of anywhere between 45 to 55.
As I thought about this further, I began to think about my own journey and the wild ride that comes with transitioning away from being a fertile myrtle baby maker. Hair, skin, and the insides all changed. Memory and energy are nowhere near what they once were. Not to mention the chassis of the car losing some of the curves, as gravity slowly wins in the fight of pulling once perky things to the ground.
But what did I gain in the pause? The short answer: A chance for a new beginning.
In the struggle of experiencing my own health changes, I began to see the beauty of how I was always taking care of others, (in womanhood that’s what we are built to do).
For the first time, I was experiencing symptoms as a continual reminder to take better care of myself. In essence, I was birthing a new baby, a different version of me!
Does this story sound familiar?

Our Wellness Services
Our treatment philosophy drives your path to WELLNESS
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
We provide treatments to help balance your hormones naturally. Treatment involves the painless insertion of bioidentical hormone pellets just beneath the surface of the skin. These pellets, measuring the size of a grain of rice, are all-natural, biological equivalents that work in partnership with your body.
We use techniques to treat the root cause of a patient's condition without the use of pharmaceuticals. We design programs to detoxify and build, using nutrition and nutraceuticals customized to each individual's needs. We combine this with a strong focus on mind/body support to prevent or reverse physiological changes in the body.
