They Say Age is Just a NumberYes, the scale #’s go up!
The cholesterol #’s go up!
The energy goes down!
The muscle tone disappears!
The libido is lost! xoxoxoxox
Sleep never invited you back! ZZZzzzzzz
Wrinkles invite themselves in your pictures!
Memory has a mind of its own?
Vision needs magnified assistance!!

The symptoms you’re noticing can be age related, but your hormones are becoming deficient and defiant.
Hormones were RAGING when we were in our
TEEN years ….
They were controlled until our mid 30’s … .
They started to evacuate in our early 40’s ….
They went missing in our early 50’s …
Hormones are a symphony and when restored
either by supplement support {Glandular”s) or “bioidentically”
it creates Harmony in one’s health and wellbeing.

They call it mid-life crisis…. NEWS FLASH!! It is happening to younger men and woman even before they reach middle age. This has a lot to do with our environment and the hormones they pump into products and our foods.

Ever look around and see young children developing and going thru puberty by 10 years old? Just hang on to your hats in a few years’ children will be going to kindergarten with a lunch box and a training bra.! Sad but it’s fact.

High levels of cortisol and its best friend STRESS!!!!
While cortisol is an important and helpful part of the body’s response to stress, it’s important that the body’s relaxation response to be activated so the body’s functions can return to normal following a stressful event. Unfortunately, we live in a gotta get it done yesterday. Eat while we work, play makeup artist in the car, unmanaged a 36-hour day in 24 hours the body’s stress response is activated so often that the body doesn’t always have a chance to return to normal, resulting in a state of chronic stress.

Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:
. Impaired cognitive performance
. Suppressed thyroid function… note that most thyroid dysfunctions are caused by stress, poor nutrition and mineral deficiencies.
. Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
. Get your previous healthy self out of witness protection and get back to the healthy age you once were!!!
