“Holy Hormones Honey! The Greatest Story Never Told” is the newest radio show to air on Voice America, the leader in internet media, and it will focus on the effect hormones have on mental health.
Sponsored by Truehope—the leader in brain nutrition products and research—this radio show will use a micronutrient support perspective to discuss biological issues that cause mood disorders.
Most people with mental health issues are women. This is due, in part, to a lack of education about the endocrine system and how and why hormones affect their minds, moods, and behaviours. Women will be the portal to sharing this information with the men and children in their lives. Because when women thrive, everyone thrives.
Show host Leslie Carol Botha is a women’s health educator and internationally recognized expert on women’s hormones and behaviours. She co-authored the highly acclaimed Understanding Your Mind, Mood, and Hormone Cycle, the first in a menstrual health series that educates women on how hormone cycles affect their minds and moods, their personal and professional relationships, and their overall health and happiness.
The premiere episode, A Promise of Hope for Mood Disorders, will air on August 8, 2013 and feature Autumn Stringam, author and advocate. She will share her incredible journey from the depths of bipolar disorder to becoming a beacon of hope for thousands of others..
By 1995, Autumn Stringam had used 13 drugs in different combinations with multiple hospitalizations and therapy for several years. Her bipolar symptoms were out of control. One hospitalization after another for Autumn finally led her husband to seek family help. Autumn was no longer able to drive, care for herself or her 3-year-old son, and the psychiatrist demanded assurances of 24-hour adult supervision for Autumn when she was not in the hospital. Using the Truehope EMPowerplus micronutrient combination, Autumn was able to drop all of her psychiatric drugs in only two months.
