What do you have planned? Whatever it is, I hope that you can have the time to smile, to take some deep breaths outside and enjoy the moments.

Do you know what's going on with your symptoms? I can help you figure it out. I say that I am the Naturopathic Dr. House. Have you seen that show? Dr. House is an amazing Diagnostician. I'm pretty much the same, without his drug problem, and I like people, unlike him.
I do a deep dive into your lab work, explore your symptoms and have the AHA moments that others haven't discovered for you. From there, I create a plan to move you forward, eliminate symptoms and allow you to feel the best that you can.
Let's chat...Let's make a plan.

How are you feeling today? Did you know that stress can affect you in interesting ways? It can even shut down activity of a pathway in the brain that controls the reproductive system. This can disrupt the connection between your brain and your ovaries and cause delayed or absent ovulation and irregular or missed periods.

Stress doesn’t have to be “all in your head”. A stress could be that your back hurts. Stress could be that you were out late at a fun party last night. Stress could be digestive upset, or food intolerances. Stress is anything that your body and mind have to adapt to. Stress affects us more when it is chronic and the stress response is ongoing.
Some small things to do in the day to help:
👉Sit by the window or outside in the morning when you have your coffee or tea.
👉Take a few long deep breaths before you go into that meeting.
👉Discover if you have any food intolerances.
👉If you are too busy, say “No” more often.
👉Explore some meditation apps. My fave is Insight Timer.

What do you like to do when you are feeling stressed?

Have you started your garden yet? Do you have a plan to?
I love to grow.
This weekend, we got the tomatoes in the ground. Seeds are started indoors, and my click and grow garden is doing well at the clinic.
Some herbs for menopause that I can suggest are for the Ottawa climate:
🌿Sage
🌿Lemon Balm
🌿Red Clover
🌿St. Johns wort

Are you curious? Do you love to learn? Are you a woman aged 40+ ? In the coming weeks, I will be launching an online course for women that will allow you to gain insight and tools to help you move gracefully, and with self compassion through the hormonal shifts that occur in midlife.
👉Stay tuned for more details on this course in which you will learn:

💥What hormones are and why they do the things they do
💥The interaction between stress and hormones
💥How digestion impacts hormones and weight💥That elusive sleep, can be found again
💥That BHRT is a safe and important therapy
💥How nutrition, environment and lifestyle affect your health
💥How you can get rid of the word "should" from your world

I believe that when women gain an understanding of what is going on inside their body, and learn my tried and true, easy to implement strategies, they will feel calm and confident in navigating the waves of hormonal change.

Stay Tuned. Doors will open in the coming weeks.

What would you choose to do?
Women are the creators.
When I ask women, "What do you do for fun? What do you do that you love?", they often can't remember.
🤰👩‍🌾Women are the nurturers, the outreached arms, the multitaskers. How about the next "to-do" on your list is all about you?
What would you choose?
📸🎻🏀💃🧵To write, paint, dance, play a sport, music, take photographs?
There's time to get back to you.

This is the stuff that drive me Bat S**T crazy!

EMERGING data????? This article is from 2008!!!!! Why are women not in the know about this?
🤥Women are still being told they do not need progesterone if they are choosing to not have children, have already had children, are past childbearing years, or who have had a hysterectomy (uterus removed)

📢 “Emerging data indicate that progesterone has multiple non-reproductive functions in the central nervous system to regulate cognition, mood, inflammation, mitochondrial function, neurogenesis and regeneration, myelination and recovery from traumatic brain injury.”

“Moreover, the impact of clinically used progestogens and developing selective PR modulators for targeted outcomes in brain is a critical avenue of investigation as the non-reproductive functions of PRs have far-reaching implications for hormone therapy to maintain neurological health and function throughout menopausal aging.”

⚒ 🔍Let’s get in the know, examine your hormone levels, restore them as needed, and simply feel better – Dr. Vivienne

It makes a difference.
👉For a woman who still has her regular cycle, we test hormones 7-10 days before her next period. So, with an example of a 28 day cycle, she would go to the lab on day 19-21. (remember that day one is the day a period starts)
👉If a woman hasn’t had a period in several months, it does not matter what day we choose to test.
👉We measure Progesterone, Estradiol and Total Testosterone to begin with.
