Our body and how it works has always fascinated me, but my interest became personal at age twenty-three when I learned I had severe endometriosis. I spent the next two decades attempting to understand and heal my disease.
At forty-six, I had a full hysterectomy, which put me into surgically induced post-menopause.
After my surgery, so many questions remained.
My ob-gyn doctor and other doctors I consulted had few answers. It seemed there was a great need for experts who could guide a woman in all areas, and help her to be as healthy and vibrant as possible.
I decided to become one of those experts, and returned to school to study gerontology. I selected gerontology because it incorporates all facets of our human experience.
I’m sharing the knowledge I have gained through my personal experience and my professional education with you, starting with the basics of healthy aging.
These topics will provide you with a solid understanding of steps you can take for aging vibrantly.
