Last week I enjoyed soy cappuccino at my favourite Runaway bay cafe La Cloche, with a new friend who had recently moved to Main Beach, where I live.
As we sat and sipped our coffees, we openly chatted about many subjects, one of them being our recent Botox injections. We both giggled and agreed about how great it is to be able to remove crow’s feet lines from our facial skin. My friend asked me about the bio-identical hormones I’d mentioned taking for anti-ageing. She inquired as to whether they were legal, and I informed her that they were absolutely legal and they are available by prescription from my anti-aging doctor who is a specialist in hormone replacement. She stated that she might need to see my doctor, because at 49 years of age she was beginning to notice changes in herself that she never experienced before. She told me how her breasts had begun to get very sore to the touch during her last menstrual cycle. I told her that it could be a sign that her hormones were fluctuating, as this causes various unpleasant symptoms to occur in a woman’s body. I told her that all peri-menopausal women should have their hormone levels checked regularly. She told me that she thought that it was only necessary to have hormone levels checked once you’d actually reached menopause.
I find that this is a common misconception that many women in this country have, and may be the reason they suffer unnecessary symptoms of the ageing process. Anti-ageing doctors recommend that hormones be checked, and if necessary replaced, when we enter our peri-menopausal years, which is generally about ten years before we reach menopause.
We talked about my Keep Life Simple blog, and I explained to her how she could find further topics that we were discussing, plus a whole lot more useful tips for women like herself who want to feel good again. She was excited to share the blog and the information found on it with her female friends, who could also benefit. I told her that I looked forward to the day when all peri menopausal women in Australia used the blog and put into practise what they have learned on it, so they too can age well, with good health, looks, and vitality, as I am.
I am still amazed by how many Australian women are so undereducated about the anti-ageing benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement.
