Your Energy, Your Hormones, and Ayurvedic Wisdom (Part 1)

Your Energy, Your Hormones, and Ayurvedic Wisdom (Part 1)

In preparation for the upcoming Healthier Hormones course, Cate chats with Dr. Claudia Welch about women’s energy and hormones from an Ayurvedic perspective. Cate and “Dr. C.” have been collaborating on the Healthier Hormones course for the past several years, and Cate has noticed a maturation of the wisdom being shared in the Healthier Hormones Facebook forum. In Part 1 of this 3 part series, Cate and Dr. C. discuss a common misconception that women have less energy as they age. Dr. C. proposes that perhaps it’s not our energy that has diminished, but our willingness to push ourselves beyond our limits. With that, as we age, our energy, rather than diminishing, simply shifts to a more subtle, grounded energy that allows us to tap into greater experiences of source energy that can be directed in such a way that we don’t need to be nearly as “busy” in order to be generative.

If we resist that shift in energy, and we continue to push ourselves beyond our limits, our health starts to suffer, and one of the first bodily system to take a hit is the endocrine system. The easiest way to avoid, recognize, and circumvent hormone problems is to slow down, turn our senses inward, and get to know our natural rhythms and work towards alignment with them.

Favorite Quotes:

  • “. . . we’re supposed to actually, in my experience, get more tapped in each year to source, to beingness, and through the wisdom, be able to direct our energy so much more specifically so that we don’t have to be nearly as “busy” in order to be generative.” — Cate Stillman
  • “ . . . there is no such thing as taking a perfect dose of hormone to regain equilibrium. That’s not the idea. The idea is to shift the lives, and the hormones then come into balance. — Dr. Claudia Welch
