    Phew! What a ride the past six plus years have been. And like everything that’s worthwhile, it’s important to know when to step away. And so, I must bid adieu to Flashfree to make room for new writing, new reporting and a new journey. As an early adopter in the menopausal blogging space, I’ve watched a burgeoning interest among women who are entering or in the middle of the menopause transition. Mostly, I’ve received validation time and again that open dialogue and self-care are essential as we age. And while Flashfree has mostly stayed away from the personal, I have…

    My period is off.  Yes, I am at that age when things like this happen.  Can you say journey into menopause?  But something more than my hormones going through a change feels out of alignment.  When I tuned into Guidance this morning they suggested the cause was due to my increased cell phone use.  I had recently begun reading books on my phone which I had never done before.  I am having another period after just getting done with my last one 10 days ago.  It’s about the same time span of my new habit of reading on my phone.  Now I’m a very good listener to my guides when I…

    This is a bit of a valedictory for Guyside. After 54 happy posts here on FlashFree, we’re at the end of the road. Asking guys to contribute to a site about menopause was a bit of a courageous and audacious move, which fits this blog’s major-domo Liz Scherer quite well. And as the writer of most of these posts, I am glad she asked me, and addicted enough to doing this that I’ll be continuing the Guyside tradition on another site, while the archives will always be available here, with my posts, as well as the other Guyside contributors Danny Brown and Rich Becker.

    At various junctures throughout Flashfree, I have run a series entitled ‘Reinventing Women.’  In it, I have highlighted the journeys or evolution, if you will, of women who are rediscovering their passion(s) in midlife, changing their focus from family and kids inward, exploring the next career path, or simply pausing for a moment to take stock. This past Summer, I became one of those women and if you check out Evolution Strategy Group or LizScherer.Co, you will see the ripening fruits of this labor. 2014 was a tumultuous year.

    Take a hint from Pepe, and be skeptical of medical claims — the more grandiose the more skeptical!     I was watching my local newscast recently and heard about an innovative new treatment for “winter blues”, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. As someone who strongly dislikes 4 pm sunsets, I was interested enough to keep watching. The treatment is a device called the Alpha LED Light Spa. This device, which resembles a tanning bed, offers a variety of programs that combine light, heat, and oxygen to treat a variety of symptoms. The owner of this particular device told…

    Heads up! If you experience moderate to severe hot flashes and night sweats, you may be at higher risk for lower bone density and in turn, a higher rate of hip fractures than women without these symptoms. These study findings were published online yesterday in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, A bit of background…researchers prospectively examined data from over 23,000 women participating in the Women’s Health Initiative study who did not use hormones. The goal was to assess the association, if any between vasomotor symptoms, that is, hot flashes and/or…

  • BEYOND THE MIRROR,THE EMOTIONAL METAMORPHOSIS OF MENOPAUSE

    Joan Williams-Okon
    15 Jan 2015 | 10:29 am
    I once watched a television program about a woman approaching middle age. She said to a close friend, ” I feel the same inside as I did as a young girl, but when I look in the mirror I know that I’m not that young girl anymore.”  I thought, how can someone feel quite young even when they are growing older? I then surmised that who we truly are-which is what can’t be seen-never changes. It is only the outer covering that changes for a multitude of reasons. Other people only see what we appear as on the outside; yet even as our eyes age, those who really know us can…

    Do you want to detox after the holidays? Lose weight? Have more energy? Get rid of gas, bloating, PMS or other hormonal symptoms? Did you know that one of the functions of the liver is to metabolize hormones (e.g. estrogen)?  This lymphatic drainage detox massage will help you to get toxins out of your liver (among other things) so the liver can do what it is supposed to do more effectively.     Quite a number of my clients have mentioned improvement in their  PMS or other hormonal issues (e.g. swollen breasts, irritability, cramps, fluid retention, etc).  They also typically have a…
  • Sometimes I want to cry .... and I don't even know why

    15 Jan 2015 | 8:27 am
    Ever since I had the hysterectomy, crying has become a daily occurrence.  The slightest little thing can set me off with little of no warning.  Films. songs, TV shows, adverts, the puppy misbehaving … all of these things can induce the tears. When asked why I am crying, I can’t give an answer or explanation – how can I when I don’t even know the reason myself?  I have always considered myself to be quite a strong person and back in the days before Endo, I often kept my emotions to myself.  To find myself losing control of my feelings, my emotions and my tears has…

    Kids, in order for you to understand how I met your other (toohotmama) and launched a blog about Marriage, Motherhood and Menopause, I should probably tell you a little about the Marriage and Motherhood piece. One of the first actual conversations I had with Matt, my now husband of many years happened back in college, when we were teenagers. At the ripe old age of eighteen, we mutually decided that if—and when—we ever married (we took the plunge at twenty) we were never, ever, EVER, not in a million years, ever going to have children. Why? We wanted a VCR, instead. See, kids, back in the…

    Do you find you get sick throughout the year? Have you tried all sorts of remedies, including airborne to no avail? Even if you are washing your hands regularly, are you doing it properly? When working in the medical profession, one of the first things we are taught is the importance of washing your hands. The practice of washing hands has saved millions of lives by stopping the spread of infections. For example, prior to routine hand washing the outcomes of surgery patients were mostly negative. As a small child, my mother told me a story of how my father’s meticulous hand washing…

    The desire of every dermatologist is for people to have beautiful skin and healthy skin care. The kind that glows with health, doesn’t have cancerous spots, acne or dry patches, doesn’t have disfiguring scars and gets compliments from everyone. But, alas, it often doesn’t work like that. Everyone has imperfections, even the stars who have personal makeup artists and luminescent skin from Photoshop. Here in the real world, we have to look at our imperfections in the mirror and go out feeling like everyone is staring and judging… because we judge ourselves. According to Social…

It may seem hard to believe but fashion and skin care protection CAN go hand-in-hand.                     No really!                       It may seem a little redundant to bring up sun protection in the winter, but winter sun can be just as damaging!
