The connection between hormones and emotions, so many people think hormones are not related to our lives, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
I’ve been following Dr. Christiane Northrup’s teaching work for a very long time. She is a visionary health pioneer and is internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness. She is also the author of the powerful book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, in which she shares that we have about 450 opportunities to pay attention to things pre-menstrually. If we blow things off or say, “This is just my time of the month,” we’ve miss the opportunity to honor our needs. And then we’ll get hit with an enormous hammer during menopause! It’s a clue to what needs to change in our lives now. There is an epidemic of hormone-related issues we face today. Did you know that 70% of women and men have some sort of hormonal imbalance? This is the opportunity to clean up unfinished business from the first half of our lives. What we get irritated about and what causes our short fuses to ignite are all the areas we neglected for so many years.
