Suffering From Symptoms of Menopause? These Foods Are Part of My Daily "Eat To Beat Menopause Formula"

I decided sometime ago to tackle my journey through menopause and hormonal changes as naturally as possible.  It has definitely been a learning experience.  I have tried a bit of everything.  What I have learned is that what might work for one woman may not work for another.  But you don't know until you try!  The trade off for not trying is a very frustrating, uncomfortable and sometimes just plain painful experience.   I am not a Doctor and urge you to consult your medical practitioner before you try any of these ideas if you are having serious menopausal symptoms.

Favorite "Anti-AgingTips" - Day #63 On My Journey To Wellness

Not too long ago I turned 57 years young!  It is hard to believe that I have actually been on this earth for 57 years and that I am 3 years from 60. Where has the time gone? 

Many people have asked me how have I managed to stay looking so young.  I think that is funny because in my minds eye, I don't feel I look that young.  But I do know that I feel great, and have endless energy. Perhaps it is my attitude and approach to life that makes me "look" young. I don't know can be the judge (but not to harshly - lol)

Here are the tips I have used especially over the last few years (see it is never too late!)
Take a Trip - Visualization has become a part of my daily routine.  Not just day dreaming but actually visualizing myself as healthy, vital, and whole.  I always visualize myself working out, eating the freshest of foods, relaxing near a quiet stream, and taking a moonlight walk.  I basically visualize the wellness I seek for my life.  Sound crazy?  We…
