If you’re a woman of a certain age,  this one is for you!

Pharmaca is holding a Thriving in Menopause event on Saturday March 30 from 11 am – 3 pm.  The store event will answer women’s questions concerning whatever phase of menopause they’re in, and explore various holistic methods to help with menopause symptoms, such as HRT and herbal remedies.

The event includes discussions of hot flashes, hormones, depression, and sleep and stress issues, plus  free mini-consultations about bHRT, free 10-minute chair massages, and free product samples.  They’re also offering savings of $20 worth of coupons, valid on the day of the event only.

  • Fragrances and aromatherapy products

Comments Off on Free Talks: Cravings, Blood Sugar, Weight, & Hormones

These two free seminars at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage could be just the ticket for the new year’s health regime. The post title sums up just about all my problems in one! Both take place on Saturday mornings this February 2011, and are free, with no reservations required. 

Cravings, Weight Gain, and the Blood Sugar Rollercoaster
Saturday February 5, 2011 at 11 am

The subtitle of this talk is “Maintaining a Healthy Weight Isn’t All About Willpower!”  I’m glad to hear that because my willpower left for a tropical island somewhere just about the time we turned the clocks back. Natural Grocers’ nutritional health coaches say keeping at a healthy weight is not just about diet or determination, but knowing how different foods impact blood sugar levels and metabolism, and therefore affect weight. This free nutritional education class aims to “teach you how to maintain healthy blood sugar balance and a healthy weight, while maintaining energy.”

Women’s Health: Hormones, Brain and Energy
Saturday February 12, 2011, at 10 am

Tips for balancing hormones for women experiencing hot flashes, fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, Candida or migraines. Led by Louise Swartswalter, a certified Biofeedback therapist, kinesiologist, health educator, and lifestyle coach who owns Albuquerque Natural Health Center.

Realistically, the free talks are probably going to include recommendations of supplements or other products you can conveniently buy at the store! But hopefully you can also pick up some useful tips, whether or not you buy. If you go, let us know!

Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage is located at 4420 Wyoming Blvd NE.
