Though we think of declining estrogen as the hallmark of menopause, it’s actually common for women to experience surges of abnormally high estrogen levels during the menopausal and premenopausal periods, as well as earlier in life. Dr. John R. Lee has done extensive research into this phenomenon. It is his belief and mine that an excess of estrogen, coupled with a deficiency of progesterone (the counter hormone to estrogen), is the common denominator for a lot of female troubles. Dr. Lee has pioneered the use of natural progesterone as an aid to dealing with this syndrome.

If one is constantly thinking negative things about oneself, or one's body, these thoughts will both create and perpetuate health problems, including excess weight.
When making dietary changes it is important to consider only those that you believe you can maintain indefinitely. This means that you should not resort to fad diets or crash diet programs. Short (one to three day) fasts can be helpful to get back on track if you feel that a weight reduction program has stalled. An approach that has worked well for many is a lemonade fast. The recipe is the juice of one organic lemon in twenty ounces of water sweetened to taste with pure maple syrup (typically 1 to 2 tablespoons). The lemonade tends to prevent fatigue or sinking spells during the fast.
Energy (lack of)
Taking an honest inventory of things that might be responsible for your fatigue or lack of energy is often the first step toward relief. So ask yourself this: Do you treat your body right?
The skin is the cover for the body and while we say, "Beauty is only skin deep," having healthy skin gives us more confidence to "face" life. Like the cover of a book, our skin represents us to the world. One basic health practice that keeps your skin glowing with good health is to clean up your internal "self" by doing some cleansing. Make sure you are getting adequate fiber by eating fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. You may also want to use a fiber supplement like Psyllium Hulls Combination.
Traditionally, herbalists have used blood purifiers or alteratives to help clear up skin conditions like acne, rashes and skin eruptive diseases. If you have a lot of skin problems it may help to take good blood purifier such as Chinese Liver Balance or Skin Detox. It may also be helpful to do the 14-day Tiao He Cleanse program.
Some skin conditions may be due to yeast overgrowth in the intestines.
Yeast overgrowth occurs when antibiotics and other drugs destroy the friendly bacteria living in the colon, allowing yeast to proliferate in their place.
Signs of yeast overgrowth include cravings for sugar, fuzzy thinking, fungal infections and reduced immunity (catching colds and flu easily). If yeast overgrowth is a problem, doing the Candida Clear program may help clear up your skin problems.
Experts estimate that long term stress is the cause of up to 90 percent of illnesses.
A recent study showed stressed workers cost the health care system almost 50 percent more than their less-stressed associates. Hence, stress is one of the underlying causes of illness that all of us need to address. Chronic stress produces a high state of anxiety. Anxiety is described as an unpleasant emotional state ranging from mild tension to profound fear. A little anxiety is normal and seems to improve performance. But when anxiety becomes chronic, the nerves are in a constant state of alertness. There is a feeling of constant danger, even when there is no obvious or immediate threat.
