Dr. Svoboda: Mentors for boys
Have you noticed that it’s women leading the movement of evolutionary health and wellness? Mostly women teaching yoga, mostly women in our classes, mostly women participating in cleanses and detoxes. Women care about their minds and bodies in a way that most men do not. But women also care about men; their sons, husbands, boyfriends and friends.
Men, Boys and Testosterone
In the Healthier Hormones course with Dr Claudia Welch we’ve been talking about the roles hormones like estrogen, progesterone and cortisol play in women’s health, and it’s been amazing to learn how we can balance these hormones with simple daily practices. But many women are wondering, what does this mean for men, and especially for their sons?
In this audio clip from our Healthier Hormones Week 2 call Dr. Svoboda talks about how testosterone, the prodominate hormone controlling men’s psychology and physiology, affects them. He goes on to further explain that culture has shifted in such a way that developing and using the gifts testosterone has to bring without proper guidance can create real problems for young men who are just trying to find their place in the world. Take a listen…
Mentors for Boys
For women mainly keeping company with other women we sometimes forget to actively seek out male mentors and teachers, but as Dr. Svoboda suggests, that is exactly what we need to be doing for our boys. We need to find strong role models to provide guidance and help channel the natural ambition testosterone brings. We need to notice the tribes our boys join, who’s leading those tribes and the lessons they are learning from these teachers.
Just another reason it is more important than ever we women continue to be the seekers of information and truth that will help us on our evolutionary health path. We can continue to invite our friends and family (male and female) to join us in reaching our highest potential. Then we can all be there for our boys when they need us most.
You can still sign up for the Healthier Hormones Course and step into an authentic relationship with your body, your energy, and your day-to-day life.
Or consider the Yogidetox and transition into the cooler months energized, light and radiating health.
