Abnormal estrogen activity is a hallmark of certain hormone-receptor cancers. Understanding how your estrogen behaves allows for very tailored nutritional therapies .⠀
Poor bodily handling of estrogen is correlated with:⠀
• Estrogen hormone receptor positive cancers of: breast, ovarian, uterus, prostate, kidney⠀
• Autoimmune condition such as:rheumatoid arthritis⠀
• Fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, PMS, heavy menstrual bleeding⠀
• Skin-related issues: acne, rashes, etc⠀
Genetic testing can evaluate the status of the genetic variants (referred to as SNPs) that influence how various estrogens are made. These genetic SNPs are the code for how estrogens get hydroxylated (activated), how they get methylated (inactivated), as well as how estrogen-derived free radicals get detoxified. ⠀
Yes, estrogen is complex! We make it, then we must use it, but then super important...we MUST detoxify it and get it out of us. ⠀
Gene testing can be helpful, but it alone does not tell us how our estrogens are behaving. It only shows inherited tendencies.⠀
The status of these gene SNPs is NOT THE SAME THING as measuring urinary, salivary or blood levels of estrogens. That's where the @dutchtest
comes in! ⠀
Estrogen gene screening:⠀
1. Is non-diagnostic for any disease⠀
2. Can provide some insight into the inherited tendencies of estrogen-related⠀
3. Could be useful in helping to guide individual nutritional protocols⠀
The good thing is, that doing a DUTCH complete hormone test will give insight into the 'reputation' of your estrogen. ⠀
I love the @dutchtest
and shortly (still have some studying to do....this is an emerging and complex science!) will be pairing looking at your estrogen enzymes and your DUTCH test markers for the very best in perimenopause and menopause vitality.

To all my friends: Thank you for being the reason why I smile. And, remember you are not getting older, you are getting better and more entitled to be your fabulous self. Have a great day!!! 😘
Cool streak of pink color in hair or misplaced lipstick?...You be the judge! 👉👤
I mean, seriously... How does this even happen?
I wanted to make some kind of profound statement about how I've simplified my makeup routine but who could take me seriously with Ruby lip & cheek color in my cowlick!
Welp... Tomorrow is a new day right?
Changes comes with time! Take the time to make the change. Investing in yourself allows you to serve others (cause let's face it that's what we do as woman, as moms💜). Making the change can be scary but take that first step!
Speaking of steps, I have been working out at home using new program with a step! Flashback to the step aerobic fad but with fun😜! The fun comes in a group of woman that lift each other up and encourage through the hard. Looking for something different? Something to start the change you are looking for? Drop an 🙋♀️🙋♀️below to start a conversation.
Can you hear the whisper over the shouting? Comments are welcomed and appreciated.
Hope is telling you something. It could be your body gets chills, your throat chakra has a tightness, or your feeling like you need to crawl out of your skin. Listening and feeling these signs are what hope is all about. Paying attention to the you inside.
Giving yourself permission to release what no longer serves as described with my previous post.
Let shift happen. I believe in you, you are strong, intuitive, loving and beautiful. You're energy speaks love and light. Keep telling yourself that, because I believe in you ❤️.
Need help with your shift? Take a walk, workout, take a break, be gentle with yourself. Love and light to you.

Aging and Optimal Wellness
It is not only possible but critical to enjoying the life experiences you want regardless of age.
The game does change when we get older, but that does not mean there is nothing we can do. It pains me to see people who accept their current health situation as fact.
You do not have to accept poor sleep.
You do not have to accept belly fat.
You do not have o accept mood swings.
You do not have to accept a diagnosis.
I know many feel confused about what is healthy, and man oh man, do I get that. Finding the optimal nutrition or diet that is best for you MAY require specific tests and lab work. There are a few simple ways to begin so you can take control and be healthy. Once you start to feel more in control of your choices, you sense this shift and create healthy living protocols for your life.
These random thoughts came to me when I was trying to understand mitochondria signaling. Basically, it is all about healthy longevity. Peace Out Friends.
Lately, I have had a case of "compare-itis" and it was sort of getting me down. It's the feeling you get when you compare yourself to others on social media. Someone else has better clothes, or a nicer house, or bigger success, or amazing travel accommodations, etc.
I know you know what I'm talking about! We've all had it at one point or another in our lives. Social media just seems to compound it.
Comparing yourself to others doesn't help you reach your goals, though. I read this today and it hit me that a lot of these applied to me. I'm so grateful that I saw it!
Whenever I get to feeling inadequate, I just remember all the things I do have and I am so very grateful for - and I have so much to be grateful for!
I want to thank my friend @vanettegrover
for being my support today and helping me "flip the script"!
Do you ever get like this? What do you do to battle it? Let me know below!
One of my favorite Shred friendly meals. It’s great anytime of day. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it’s packed with protein. And best of all, you can throw together whatever you have on hand.
I generally start with roasted veggies. Sweet potatoes and zucchini are my favorite. Then I’ll throw in some protein and more veggies.
Today I roasted sweet potatoes, onions, and mushrooms. I also sautéed chicken sausage and extra firm tofu in olive oil with garlic and LOTS of TJ’S everything but the bagel seasoning. Add a couple of fried eggs and MORE TJ’S seasoning. Voila!
Easy, peasy meal!
Hormones are the body’s physiologic “Internet system” and they run our lives. ⠀
But when not in balance, they can almost ruin your life. ⠀
They are THAT POWERFUL! ⠀
Hormones are a complex subject and something that most women could use a pair of outside eyes on. Trying to balance your hormones on your own, and without testing, is a recipe for disappointment and discouragement, if not outright disaster. ⠀
If 2019 is finally the year you uplevel your health, one of the best things you can do as a woman is get your hormones assessed, using the DUTCH test.⠀
I am a DUTCH test expert. There are not too many of us. ⠀
I will be accepting new clients in mid January 2019 who want to do the DUTCH test and get a thorough understanding of their hormones, a protocol from me on what you can do to improve and support of someone who understands you!
“Shine All Day” I love the caption on this Zumba tank. Will you be shinning today? Maybe help bring sunshine to another’s day? T’is the season of busy. Share your smile, others may need it. Muah😘
“Stars In your Eyes” Palette is the perfect Holiday palette. It has a combination of both matte and shimmer shadows with a variety of colours, ranging from nudes to more dramatic berry hues. Berries work with almost any eye colour, so you can’t go wrong! I have found that the shadows don’t crease and last all day. They are also highly pigmented, so you need very little product. Create a subtle daytime look, or a dramatic evening eye. Definitely add this palette to your wish list; you won’t be sorry!
Health, the greatest gift of all! ❣️🎄🎁 .
It seems everyone is a bit more conscious of their health lately. Eating more fruits and vegetables, eating less packaged foods, drinking more water, getting more exercise, using more natural remedies, using more pure and safe skin care and beauty products. .
Sometimes it feels hard to do it all but making the effort to make tiny changes daily all add up to big results. While I choose healthier options to eat most of the time and sneak in movement during the day; my one non negotiable in healthy living is using skin care that is botanical and formulated without added toxins. Your skin is your largest organ and part of naturally detoxing is to eliminate toxins that are applied to the skin as they are absorbed very quickly through the skin. .
The biggest gift you can give yourself this holiday season is the gift of health! What is your non negotiable gift that you give yourself when it comes to your health? ❣️🎄🎁
Are you taking time out for YOU ?!? We are just 1 week away from Christmas ( like you need me to remind you 😬) and you are probably feeling
We all know how dangerous stress can be on our body physically and mentally. It can cause anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, hair loss, wrinkles and so much more. 🚨 IT IS DANGEROUS 🚨
What’s the answer?? You need to take time out for YOU. Im sure you are taking care of everyone else in your life, YOU NEED TO PUT YOURSELF IN THAT EQUATION .❤️ Schedule a time for YOU!!! ❤️
One way is to give yourself a facial with our DETOXIFYING & MOISTURIZING MASK, sit down with a book or a cup of hot tea for 15-20 minutes, RELAX, and let the mask start drawing out all the impurities and toxins. It is creamy, non-drying with lots of natural minerals and botanicals like Green Tea and Arnica Flower, Kaolin Clay to absorb impurities and Volcanic Ash to gently exfoliate. YOU NEED THIS AND YOU DESERVE THIS!!!

"Love Actually" is a Christmas movie...
Not the one you watch with your kids, but it IS a Christmas movie nonetheless! My husband isn't a big "Christmas movie" fan, so when he went to bed, I stayed up and watched a Christmas chick flick!
What is your favorite "non-kid" Christmas movie?
