Soul-Centered Solutions for Anxiety in Perimenopause and Menopause

In my last 2 blog posts, I’ve covered common root causes of anxiety, as well as, some often overlooked reasons for this problem. You can read these here and here. But what to do about this?

What You Need to Know About Alopecia in Women

by Jill Grunewald I get a lot of questions like:  “How do I know this is alopecia?” “I don’t have an official diagnosis—is it still alopecia?” “I have diffuse hair loss—could it be alopecia and will your program help me?”  “I have female pattern baldness—is this alopecia?” It’s all “alopecia” because the medical term for hair loss (any pattern—total, patchy or diffuse) is “alopecia.” But...

What Tiger Woods Teaches Us About Midlife, Grace and Redemption

This past Sunday, Tiger Woods found himself in what many considered an impossible situation; leading the Masters golf tournament on the 18th green. And when the last putt fell, there he was, fist pumping, hugging his family and accepting his 5th green championship jacket. It was pure joy to watch. Who would have predicted this?

6 Reasons Why Alcohol Affects Hormone Balance

For many perimenopausal women, wine is the go-to management strategy to take the edge off negative symptoms (or people). April is Alcohol Awareness Month and since women’s bodies are affected differently by alcohol than men’s, it’s important to shine a light on this topic. Women metabolize alcohol differently than men for several reasons. These include having less water in our bodies to dilute the alcohol;...

Your Genes Are Not Your Destiny

Do you ever wonder why a certain diet, supplement, or fitness trend seems to work miracles for your friends, yet as hard as you try, you don’t get the same results? Are you afraid you’re doomed by your family’s health issues (diabetes, cholesterol, weight gain… even Alzheimer’s disease) because it’s “just in your genes”?

What Keith Urban and a Pull Up Have in Common

It would have been easier to stay in the basement and hope that he’d show up. But, there was just one problem. It was Idol finale night and the chances that Keith Urban would come to the bowels of the Dolby Theatre where I was hanging out were less than zero. And I was on a mission. Here’s the story.

Life is Short: What Will You Stop Tolerating in 2015?

There’s a lot in life we tolerate. Some of it we have little control over (taxes, bad weather, traffic). But there’s a good chunk we suck up even when we don’t have to. We ignore the check engine light, give the stink eye to the socks our partners toss on the floor, put up with the critical friend, and mindlessly accept the annoyances that drain...

The Number 1 Way to Have THE Best New Year

Ever feel like your life is a great-big ping-pong match (and you’re the ball)? You know what I’m talking about…living in reactive mode 24/7 just trying to keep all the plates in the air.
