Hormones get a bad rap. They are known to cause everything under the sun, including weight gain, exhaustion, and acne. But what if your hormones weren't actually to blame? I'm going out on what could be a very controversial limb to argue that your hormones aren't to blame for what ails you - but your energy is. The typical hormonal equation is; hormones become imbalanced = weight gain, exhaustion, hot flashes, etc. But today I want you to see, your hormones don't just fall out of balance and when they do, it's not your hormones you need to fix as much as it is the root and that is your energy. Which means the real equation looks more like this: decrease in healthy energy = imbalanced hormones = weight gain, exhaustion, hot flashes What would change if we shifted our focus from hormones to energy? You might just find that your hormones don't rebalance, but everything in life seems healthier.  Inside today's podcast, we talk about this and how your energy is responsible for your hormones. And more importantly, we break down how to change your energy flow to walk in hormonal health.  It's no longer the chicken or the egg, it's always energy before hormones.

Today I interview an essential oil expert and outline 7 ways to use essential oils for health.  I'm an amateur when it comes to essential oils.
