In the intricate tapestry of our lives, hormonal balance is often the unsung hero, dictating our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Yet, for many women, understanding and harnessing this power can feel like an elusive feat. In this blog post, I take you on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, exploring three pivotal aspects of owning your hormonal power. In the next three weeks, I will delve much deeper into each area. So hold on and let’s go.

Your God-Given Power: Epigenetics Unveiled

I know a lot of my readers are concerned about cancer – especially breast cancer. Yet did you know that in 2008 MD Anderson Cancer Clinic stated that a mere 5-10% of cancers are caused by “bad genes”. Read that again. This declaration means that 90-95% of cancers are caused by our diet and lifestyle. Deepak Chopra, MD’s profound words “The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30-50 years”  summarizes Epigenetics.

Epigenetics, the intricate dance between our genes and the environment, holds the key to unlocking our innate potential. Contrary to the deterministic view of genetics, epigenetics reveals that our lifestyle choices and environmental factors can influence gene expression, shaping our hormonal landscape.

Imagine your genes as the canvas, waiting to be painted with the brushstrokes of your choices. By nourishing your body with wholesome foods, managing stress, and prioritizing sleep, you wield the power to sculpt your hormonal destiny. Epigenetics empowers us to transcend the limitations of our genetic inheritance, offering a pathway to optimal health and vitality.

Dissed by Dysfunctional Medicine: It’s time for change

For far too long, women have been sidelined in medical research and dismissed in clinical practice. From being excluded from clinical trials to enduring disbelief and gaslighting from healthcare providers, the journey to hormonal health has been fraught with obstacles.

The repercussions of this systemic neglect are profound, leaving countless women feeling unheard, unseen, and underserved. It’s time to demand gender equality in healthcare, where women’s experiences are validated, and their unique hormonal needs are addressed with dignity and respect.

As we advocate for change, let us also reclaim our agency in our healthcare journey. Educate yourself, seek out providers who prioritize patient-centered care, and never settle for anything less than the compassionate, comprehensive support you deserve. You may actually need to find a new provider, one that practices Functional Medicine, to get the care that you deserve. But for goodness sake, do not settle for being disrespected, dishonored, and gaslighted by providers who are blowing off your symptoms, spending 15 minutes, then giving you a “pill for an ill”.

The Real Cost of Self-Sacrifice- To You and Those You Love

In a society that glorifies self-sacrifice, producing results on fumes and sleep deprivation is honored, women often find themselves at the bottom of their own priority list. The relentless demands of caregiving, career, and household responsibilities take a toll on mental and emotional well-being, leaving little room for self-care.

But here’s the harsh truth: neglecting your own needs is not noble; it’s unsustainable. The real cost of self-sacrifice is measured in depleted energy, diminished joy, and compromised health. It’s time to rewrite the narrative, reclaiming your right to prioritize self-care without guilt or apology.

Self-care is not selfish; it’s a revolutionary act of self-love and self-preservation. In fact, “Self-care is how you take your power back” states Lalah Delia in her amazing book Vibrate Higher Daily.  To begin owning your power, start small, carving out pockets of time for activities that nourish you spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Whether it’s a brisk walk in nature, a leisurely bubble bath, playing with your kids or pets, spending time with your soulmate, or a quiet moment of reflection, prioritize moments of replenishment amidst the chaos of daily life.


Owning your hormonal power is not a destination but a journey—a journey of self-awareness, empowerment, and self-compassion. By embracing the principles of epigenetics, advocating for gender equality in healthcare, and prioritizing self-care, you reclaim your sovereignty over your hormonal health.

So, dear reader, I invite you to embark on this journey with courage and conviction. Stand tall in your truth, honor your body’s wisdom, and trust in your innate capacity to thrive. Together, let us pave the way toward a future where every woman can fully own her hormonal power and live a life of radiant vitality and well-being.

Again, stay tuned for the next 3 weeks as I go into much greater detail on each of these topics. The information may shock you, even infuriate you, yet I promise you will feel enlightened and empowered at the end of this journey.
