Understanding Female Hormonal Health
With 70% of my clients being female, I'm proud to have completed Pacific Rim College's "An Integrated Approach to Female Hormonal Health" course. The endocrine system is like an orchestra - everything works together as one. But when one or more of the endocrine glands are not functioning properly (hormonal imbalance), it causes symptoms that vary according to which gland is affected in females. The symptoms more frequently include: mood swings constipation or diarrhea irregular menstrual cycle infertility pain in the abdomen or the back during menstruation low sex drive insomnia unexplained weight gain or weight loss brittle bones excessive hair growth [...]
Bungee Jumping off The Bridge to Nowhere
“You’re crazy” …”Are you out of your mind?” These were just some of the responses when I told my family and friends I was going to go bungee jumping.

The fabled “Bridge to Nowhere Bungee Jump” here in Los Angeles County was the perfect opportunity. You hike five [...]

A Walk Across Northern England on Hadrian’s Wall Path
Some long-distance walking trails can be religious or spiritual in nature such as the Camino de Santiago in Spain or the Kumano Kodo in Japan. They can also be a great way to get fit and lose weight or to simply decompress and re-center as part of an inward and outward journey. For history buffs, and/or lovers of all things Roman, there’s one that stands out from all the rest and it’s called The Hadrian’s Wall Path – an 84 mile coast-to-coast trail in northern England that follows an ancient Roman wall that was built in AD122 by the Roman emperor Hadrian [...]
