Myth of Estrogen:
Balancing Hormones & Our Divine Feminine
By: Leigh Wunce Certified Nutritionist & Medical Intuitive
There is a myth that if we donít use estrogen as a
drug our bodies will wither and die with brittle bones, lost libidos
and broken hearts. Every woman, whether she is young or old, can find
support from understanding her unique hormonal journey. Hormones support
our well-being, giving us the flow of creative juices to live more
fully. There are many ways to naturally support our monthly cycle
or our menopausal experience. By learning to listen to the language
of our bodies, we can embrace the uniqueness of who we are. This is
the path that gives us the niche to dance with life in greater balance.
I am passionate about educating woman in finding and interrupting

hot flashes, breast tenderness, depression, low thyroid, fibroids,
weight gain, and low sex drive. The greatest benefit of natural progesterone
is its ability to stimulate new bone growth to halt osteoporosis.
Natural progesterone is plant derived and available as a cream that
is applied topically and absorbed directly into the skin. It matches
the molecular structure of what our bodies make and is basically non-toxic.
After menopause the progesterone levels go to nearly zero, while estrogen
levels only decrease by 40% to 60%. Clinical studies are showing that
even women in their thirties are severely deficient in progesterone.
We live complicated lives and hormone balancing rekindles our Goddess
energy to passionately support creating our personal fulfillment;
