I have never been one to take a lot of medications, but the older I got, I found myself turning to pharmaceuticals to address the many obstacles I was starting to face.After all, it's all we know right? One big overwhelming obstacle that was all consuming was the rollercoaster of peri-menopause or that period of time before menopause. Darn the hot flashes, insomnia, increasing muscle aches and pains, food cravings that were like a big daunting oppression. Add to that, mood changes (can I say irritability, depression?)
Then I got hit with the big one!!!! Breast cancer…..what the? Yes, a small tumor that required a lumpectomy and 33 radiation treatments. Post-surgical pain, scarring, radiation skin changes, it was pretty much awful!!
But!!!! I found something!!! Something that allowed me to stop the antidepressants, something that helped me sleep, something that helped with the muscle aches and pains. Something that helped me on the roller coaster of breast cancer treatment and recovery!!!!! Something that is not a pharmaceutical made in a lab but is natural and healthy and free of chemicals and toxins.
Today I feel stronger than ever! I have found several solutions for sleep (I do have to change it up) and for the mood thing? Well, don’t ask my husband. For the aches and pains, WOW!!!! I’m amazed at that solution. Now, I’m not going to sugarcoat things too much. I will occasionally take an Aleve, but, it is rare!!!! The only thing that is not gone are the Hot Flashes!!!!!!! Prayer and discovering options for supplements through lab analysis have been a game changer.
