Not that I’m in menopause yet (well, sometimes I feel 10 years older than I really am), but when I owned a day spa, I knew lots of clients who underwent hysterectomies and hormone replacement therapy that turned out to be unnecessary and more harmful than helpful.

I was so touched when I saw this that I asked myself, “Is there anything I can do to help our neighbors in Japan, too?” And the first answer that came back (invariably, it’s always my Voice of Judgment – the VoJ) was, “No. What … Continue reading
