I wonder where the flowers is?”

What a girl’s been thinking about all Winter”
Well Hello Again All You Happy Hormonals!
Just can’t help waxing slightly lyrical when the weather here is so glorious! September is the BEST month of the year here on the sunny Gold Coast. Not overly hot, not cold, no need for cover ups or stockings. Life looms ahead with sunlit BBQs in the evenings, not having to wait for the weekend. Ah, Yes!
So much is always happening around here that you won’t be surprised to find that we are busy, busy, busy. But we are also happy to report a couple of interesting items.
Those who look at my Facebook page from last night will know that I have been reading about the benefits of Vitamin D. We all know it is good for your bones, like the Queens of Hormones, progesterone, it helps keep your bones in good shape. What is becoming clear is that grandma’s advice about getting out into the fresh air and sunlight holds as good today as when she used to say it.
Vitamin D (Or Lack Of It) Has Been Implicated In Mental Deterioration & Parkinson’s Disease
That’s where there is severe trembling of the limbs and the muscles generally. Most patients when untreated are unable to walk properly or talk properly and soon lose the will to live such a restricted life. There have been amazing developments in the surgical field and you may have read about them. But it appears that good old Vitamin D can keep the monster of elderly “cognitive decline” (That’s “old and stupid” to you and me) at bay for many years. Now that’s gotta be good news!
The Study Also Suggests That Vitamin D Helps Recovery Of Brain Cells After Stroke
You know about stroke. That’s the ‘elephant in the room’ that all elderly people fear but never talk about. Mini-strokes are very common so anything that helps in returning the brain to good functioning is great news.
Get Your Vitamin D3 Levels Tested
And see if you can get drops to boost the levels to at least 50nmol/l (just remember 50) to get the benefit.
But don’t forget you can get a good dose of Vitamin D for free by doing 15 minutes gardening or walking in the sunlight for 15 minutes with your arms and legs showing. This is not enough to cause trouble with melanoma but is enough to boost your Vitamin D levels.
On Saturday November 6 I am speaking in Newcastle NSW at The Boulevard on Beaumont. This is another Magical Menopause afternoon. This is the chance you have been waiting for to catch the event they have been talking about since I did the first one in Surfer’s Paradise!

Anyone For A Hormone Holiday?
You know you can find a holiday for any specialised group these days:
craft, university subjects, romance.
Well, you can also come on a holiday where you can learn more about your hormones!
As I have been speaking at various venues about hormones and their natural management, I have often found women who have said they could not come because of family holidays, clash of dates etc. Well, now is your opportunity.
I have arranged a week long cruise out of Los Angeles in December, cruising down the Mexican Riviera (West coast) and will be holding seminars on board where we can exchange wisdom, learning, and gossip! There is a whole lot more included than in the normal cruise:
- You can do theInternational Women’s Leadership Course;
- sample the pots of hormone creams that are appropriate for you;
- listen to the accumulated wisdom of women’s secret business; as well as having
- all food and accommodation costs met.
The value of the cruise package is $6,990
But as you are going to have to get to LA and as I am going to be on the cruise anyway;
I have taken…Wait for it…$3000 OFF, so that you can now get this extraordinary package for
only $6,990 $3,990!
ONLY THREE Places Left…
Reiki Group News
To all my Reiki healers, a special “Hi” today and to ask you to send one of our group all the energy you can spare. She is currently in hospital and unwell so even without me spelling out her name, please send her all the whole energy that you can remember to send, for as many minutes as you can. She has responded already to the healing we sent her the other night, so more will tip the balance even further in her favour.
