Perimenopause...or sluggish colon?

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Stagnant waste can create symptoms the mimic perimenopause, says Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2006). The reason: To balance hormones, the liver breaks down excess estrogen and directs the metabolites to the colon to be flushed. If there's stagnant waste, metabolites linger, then are reabsorbed into the body. This creates estrogen dominance, which has been linked to irregular periods, hot flashes, irritability and low libido in women who are too young for perimenopause. And for women who are perimenopausal, it makes symptom more severe. The smoothie at right will remedy the problem by speeding waste removal, plus it will nourish the liver so it can better process estrogen.

WHAT CAN HELP- This is at-home enema kit- can flush pounds of hardened waste. And here, some less invasive alternatives.

1. If you have one to three BM's a day and pass waste with little difficulty, your body may be holding on to just a few pounds of stagnant buildup. Dr. Dean advises drinking (not sipping) 16 oz. of water first thing in the morning.

This softens colonic contents, plus triggers a peristaltic action that gets the body into a rhythm of flushing waste.

2. If you go to the bathroom less than once a day, you likely have a significant buildup. For mega dose of fiber that will help sweep hardened waste from colon walls:

Blend 1 papaya, 2 cups cranberries, 1 Tbs. ground flaxseed and 2 Tbs. psyllium powder (like Metamucil). Drink twice a day until you're regular and symptom-free, than drink twice weekly.

(Don't eat within an hour of drinking so the fiber doesn't flush away nutrients in food.)

Walking

Monday, August 17, 2009

After Church I went for a walk on this nice sunny day. I felt great.

I have to continue walking more to get the steps in.

Everybody needs to enjoy the sun when you can because the outside puts me in a good mood.

Hope everybody had a nice Blessed Sunday as I did.

Let's keep up the good work in getting this weight off.

    Happy to hear you enjoyed your walk, however I am the just the opposite, I only walk at nite and on rainy/cloudy days as much as possible. I hate the sun and I hate hot, humid weather.

I am part vampire, apparently ! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Walking in the sun also gives you Vitamin D which keeps away Cancer. It also strengthens bones. There are a number of good reasons to walk outside. I like the weather and being in the outdoors instead of inside on a treadmill. They say its easier on you if you feet.

Walking in the Sun

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Today, 8.14.09 was a nice day to walk outside.

I had to take care of some business before I went walking.

Today, was a shutdown day from work.

This gave me a chance to enjoy the outside which I did and loved it. I was able to walk over 10,000 steps which I enjoy.

I will be trying to do the same thing tomorrow if the weather permits.

Everybody keep moving when you can and you will enjoy the results at the end.

Keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon

Walk for Happier Hormones

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Lace up your sneakers to cool hot flashes and fell fab after 40.

Exercise may be key to a sunny outlook through perimeno-pause and beyond, reports a new study. Inactive women ages 42 to 58 who did about 3 hours of moderate activity (such as walking) per week felt happier and more confident about their bodies over a 2-year period, and noticed a drop in hot flashes and night sweats.

One explanation may be that exercise elevates levels of endorphins that foster feeling of well-being, help you relax, and impact your ability to regulate body temp.
