October happens to be my birthday month, the month I took the driver’s license exam for the first time & breast cancer awareness month, fitting since I’ve always had a mammogram the month of my birthday and though I’m an anti aging specialist I’m not immune to the deeply challenging fight against weight gain, wrinkles, menopause symptoms or Vaginal Atrophy.
The fight is on! Middle age has felt very much like a nemesis that has constantly
Tried getting the upper hand, consistently one step a head and knows me better than I know myself.
Well, I suppose this is true when it comes to Middle age,
This relentless punishing opponent has mastered bringing many of us to our knees.
So often, I’ve felt betrayed by my body allowing Middle age to come between us,
My entire life I’ve been a contender, yet this battle feels slightly odd in it’s happen internally, my face, my body, my genes. all shifting.
I could’ve thrown my hands up, buried my head in the sand turning my head against the daunting challenge.
but there’s such a terrible price to pay in not making the necessary adjustments for this new stage of life:
Exercising twice a day is the new normal morning & night with heavy weights and resistance bands.
Probiotics, a bottle of water with two table spoons of apple cider vinegar flushes out the lymphatic system.
Multi vitamins daily, liquid calcium for bone health.
Testosterone for energy, Estrogen for feminine health.
Membrasin for vaginal moisture with wild yam salve.
Intermittent fasting/ Mediterranean meals covers my internal care.
Externally... tea tree oil cleanser to prevent drying out my mature thinning skin,
“Luna” sleeping Retinol oil,
“Plump it” thickening skin cream for face neck & hands
“PURE biology total eye” cream.
I give myself facials twice a week with toning (Russian Massage/ Radio Frequency) exfoliation (derma planning or microdermabrasion) as the focus.
All of which includes a Chriopracter visit once a month.
These are all the steps anyone as young as 35 can begin doing to be prepared in advance of middle age.
