Please share with peri-menopause women everywhere.
Sandra at 71….no photo shopping….no fillers…just Yoga….
SuzanneSomers IS PEDALING NONSENSE. SHE, HERSELF, DOESN’T LOOK THAT GREAT FOR 66. (Her pictures are photo shopped and her face has fillers.)
The following is from Sandra’s soon to be released book, “YOGA FICTION:YOGA TRUTH”.
The glandular and hormonal changes that occur during PERI-MENOPAUSE send PRANA (energy) streaming through the NADIS (meridians) to break up PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL TOXINS. For many women this initiates a HEALING CRISIS, resulting in hot flashes, sweats, tingling, rashes and cold sensations (just like in asana).
A woman receptive to her INNER processes senses that along with her PHYSICAL changes, a PSYCHOLOGICAL EVOLUTION is occurring.
She may lament the passing of her youth and reproductive abilities, think about and grieve lost opportunities and wonder about her future, while she juggles work, family and aging parents.
To support herself through this PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL TRANSITION, she needs to boost her NUTRITIONAL INTAKE, get extra REST and practice YOGA.
Once the woman arrives at MENOPAUSE (in usually three to five years), her ENERGY, scattered during the hormonal adjustments of peri-menopause, RETURNS in ABUNDANCE, along with the WISDOM of where she has been, where she is and where she is going.
Stepping into her MATURE YEARS, she is a worthy and INSIGHTFUL GUIDE for the younger generation.
The use of pharmaceutical hormones, EVEN BIO-IDENTICAL ONES, truncates the DELICATE dance between her hormonal system and its ability to FINE-TUNE HER BODY in accordance with her UNIQUE physical and emotional needs.
To uproot EMOTIONAL baggage hormones are CONTINUALLY adjusting. If she relies on the WISDOM OF HER BODY to bring her through this NATURAL healing crisis, instead of outside agents, the prize is a more MATURE and WISER self.
However this takes PATIENCE and ENDURANCE, just the traits needed for the challenges most people face in their later years.
On the other hand, women, who bypass the struggle of passing through the tunnel of introspection BY TAKING OUTSIDE AGENTS THAT DISRUPT THEIR HORMONAL SYSTEMS act like debutantes, or worse yet, teenagers, well into their mature years.
Pharmaceutical companies are increasingly targeting men, too, to recreate their youthful years. YOGA, EXERCISE and a HEALTHY DIET are a far better way to go due to the long-term side effects of medications.
If medication is needed, my recommendation is THE LEAST AMOUNT OF MEDICATIONS FOR THE MOST AMOUNT OF GAIN with the LEAST AMOUNT OF SIDE-EFFECTS along with YOGA.
During my menopausal years I influenced many women to STOP taking HORMONAL-REPLACEMENT THERAPY. Now the NEGATIVE SIDE-EFFECTS are being shown. No need to be a GUINEA PIG for medical research.
MENOPAUSE IS A NATURAL PROCESS. IT MAKES US WISE.
PLEASE PASS ON TO PERI-MENOPAUSAL WOMEN.
