Let’s Talk About Menopause and Adrenal Fatigue
Life just keeps happening at a fast and frantic pace; you worry that your mental and physical health won’t hold up under the onslaught.
and Adrenal Fatigue Menopause is the natural reduction of the ovarian hormones your body produces. The fluctuation of your hormones can cause: mood swings (usually irritability and depression), headaches, mental “fog”, fat gain around the abdomen and hips, dryness, fatigue and insomnia, and so on.
As your sex hormones gradually decline and your stress level remains constant, (or worse yet, ramps up!)—two tiny glands located above each kidney are left to pick up the slack. They are your adrenal glands and they are struggling with the load. The result is adrenal fatigue, or its more appropriate medical name: HPA Axis Dysfunction.
You become profoundly exhausted, and usually also suffer from miscellaneous “aches and pains”, autoimmune issues (think arthritis, allergies, thyroid) and digestive disorders. You have one nerve left and everybody gets on it.
There is no such thing as a fifteen minute consult in my practice. After an extensive intake and medical history, I develop a diagnosis and treatment that is uniquely yours. I am genuinely interested in acting as your “body detective”, thoroughly and methodically collecting the clues your body gives me and fitting them together to rebuild your health.
I am a licensed acupuncturist and focus on effectively restoring the energetic flow in your body, I’m also the only acupuncturist in Canada trained to use a “K-Laser” medical laser to further address pain and offer “needleless” treatments. I enhance these therapies with the very latest in private lab testing, dietary advice, herbal tinctures and teas, and professional grade supplements. I am committed to helping you regain your good health and sense of peace.

“Good evening Dorothy I just wanted to take a moment to get back to you on how Womanition has made a difference in my life. As I’ve shared with you previously I know that my business would not be where it is now if not for Womanition. This next part is between you and I. In my first year in Edmonton (4 years ago) I had 15 clients all year and barely made 15,000. Now only 4 years later I’ve hit six figures with 4 part-time staff and I’m already sitting at 20 clients for 2019. I’m also moving into a new location next week that is a store front with 600 sq ft. I’m so excited. So what made the difference in the past 4 years? Womanition! Trust me when I say everything I needed to know about growing my business I learned by attending Womanition Luncheons and Bizbrigades. Even today I met a new client and she mentioned Dorothy Briggs and Donna Worthington and how wonderful you both had been in supporting a charity event she held. My parents told me growing up that you are known by the company you keep and I believe that is part of the successful formula that is Womanition! I have done business with many members and I collaborate with many of the ladies from Womanition and I love introducing women to the group as well. Because I know what it can do for someone’s business. I have made some wonderful friendships that continue to bloom and enrich my life. Barely a day goes by where I don’t talk to someone who I met through the Womanition Group. When I moved to Edmonton in 2014 I didn’t know anyone! Of course, many of the members of the Senior Solutions Team are women who I met through Womanition and it brings so much credibility to potential clients and members of our team when I can point out so many members in the magazine. I really can’t even express how much being part of Womanition has meant to me. It has changed my life!! Smiles and blessings to you always Dorothy” -Karen Murdock
