Haywire Hormones?

Hi!  I'm back.  We were gone last week for a fabulous vacation with friends in the mountains.  I will have a post with pictures hopefully sometime this week.  And, I want to finish my follow-up to the series I started a couple weeks ago as well.

In the meantime I had to share this link to an interesting article...Are Your Hormones Making You Miserable? by Dr. Mark Hyman.

This article immediately caught my attention because I've suspected for several months that my hormones are haywire.  I've been experiencing major mood swings, bouts of extreme anger, general irritibility, and depression.  And, it definitely corresponds with...you know...'that time'.  I've known that I needed to do something but I've really wanted to try something natural.  

This article gives 12 suggestions of ways to get your hormones back in sync.  And, guess what!?  It involves eating fewer carbs and sugars, eliminating processed foods, eating fresh foods & healthy fats, exercise - all stuff I knew I should do all along.

The article challenged the reader to try making the changes for 1 week and see how they felt. I've always felt overwhelmed by the thought of changing my eating habits so dramatically. But, I think I can commit to 1 week. So, I'm taking the 1 week challenge. I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Oh those horomones aren't fun...and I too do as much natural as possible...nothing else. I am so much older than you, but even in the past exercise helped the most...I know, who wants to do that, but it does. Also learning what energizes me...which I posted today...I need to create in some fashion.

    I would love to come to your house...it is just a precious house...and give you ideas and we both could make those horomones take a hike!!

    Hang in there...this too will pass. Hugs

  2. Take it from someone with a lot of experience with wacky hormones--it can make you feel absolutely loopy!! Something that helps me a lot is a good multivitamin that is high in B vitamins. Hope you see some improvement!!

  3. How is Week 1 going?? May God infuse you with perseverance, peace, and a ton of His power!
    Sweet blessings
