Very recently I have started to put some bird feeder's out to see what kinds of birds we could attract in our area. Most days my feeders are filled with House Sparrow's, Brewer's Blackbirds, the occasional House Finch and my favorites the Red-Winded Blackbird. That was until today when this little fellow decided to dine her for lunch. He is a Western Tanager. His colour was so amazing I wasn't sure if I was seeing correctly. I was rushing around the house trying to find my telephoto lens in the hopes of getting a picture of him. He finally gave me the perfect pose, I hope he comes back again.

In all the books I have read about perimenopause they are consistent in talking about supplements. Making sure you are taking the right ones and the correct amount. Well the Chorons Apollo Clinic follows those beliefs as well. I figured I wouldn't wait until my appointment this month to start on the vitamins and supplements they recommend.
There products are very convenient to take, with individual packing you to take twice a day. You take certain ones in the morning and the rest in the evening.. I can take comfort in knowing that when I go to bed at night I have not missed anything.
Now like almost everything in the world today, if it's good for you it's going to cost you! These supplements and vitamins are not the exception. I was a little worried about my husband reaction when he saw the bill.
Then I notice something on the front of the container ... Hmmmm what did I read? Oh yes, not a husband out there will complain about the cost of this product if it proves to be effective, I mean it's written right there in the front of the container, what man would refuse the benefit of taking these vitamins and supplements.
Just read it for yourself.
Would you not agree!!!
For peak mental, physcial and HERE's the biggy Sexual Performance.
I have a feeling if this works in that department my husband will not only buy me this for Chrismas and Birthday's but he will worship the ground at the Chronos Apollo Clinic.

No surprise to me but all my blood work came back fine.
I am not giving up just yet. A good friend of mine suggested a Doctor that she had been going to who specializes in hormone replacement and more importantly bio-identical hormone replacement. The name of the clinic is called Chronos Apolla http://www.chronosapollo.com/
Here is just a sample of some of the systems, I have 4 out of 5 of these symptoms.
STRESS AFFECTS YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. When you don't have all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need you cannot make hormones.
When you don't have the right hormone balance, your WHOLE BODY works at less than 100% AND THE PROCESS OF AGING IS ACCELERATED.
So, if you have ever wondered why people look older when they are stressed - now you know!
If you have ever heard of skinny, active, healthy people dropping dead of a heart attack, or getting cancer - stress and hormone imbalance are to blame.
SYMPTOMS TO WATCH FOR THAT YOU MAY NOT NOTICE:
Loss of spontaneity:
- Are you less able to jump up and do something on the spur of the moment? Many people dismiss this as being busy. Pay attention to this.
Loss of interest in things you usually enjoy, including sex.
- Often accompanied by fatigue, you may mistakenly think you are just too tired. Think about this carefully: did your 'GET-UP-'N'-GO'get up and go without you???
Often described as loss of passion and zest for life.
- You wake up tired, and no amount of rest makes you feel more energetic. You function at a much lower steam than you used to.
- For salt (savoury foods) or sugar.
- when you change position quickly.
- Are you able to remember as well as 5-10 years ago?
- Alzheimer's disease and dementia risk is increased in people who are under high stress.
These are just some of the results from long standing stress.
I really don't know if any of this is going to work but I have to try something and right now this really make sense.
