The Heart Hormone Connection
It’s Getting Hot in Here … Hormones and Heart Health
Parlor A 
There are certain numbers every woman should know and they’re well beyond just your shoe size! Learn how your body mass index, waist circumference, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and lipid panel may factor into decisions on hormone therapy. There are risks and benefits of hormone therapy. Learn also about the various options in hormone therapy such as herbal, synthetic and bio-identical preparations.

The Heart Soul Connection
Digging For The Treasure
Parlor B 
We have some amazing tools right at our fingertips to use to dig for
healthy treasures — to use when we recognize the way things are,
evaluate and decide things that need to change. But inner pirates create a battle on the adventure to reclaiming health. 

New habits, behaviors and choices to change begin with watching and learning, and culminate in acting on the decision. What inner pirates are keeping you from a powerful life?

You are a gem! Come fill your treasure chest with me.

The Heart Brain Connection
Parlor C
Total heart health is more than just eating well and exercising. Your
relationships to others are also important. Our hearts are affected by
our emotions and our emotions are affected by our relationships. Learn how to become more aware and skillful in your relationships to provide a broader concept of heart health.
