Hormone levels change as we women age, which can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms such as stubborn belly fat, anxiety, low energy, brain fog, mood swings, acne, & insomnia.
You may suspect that your hormones are out of whack but not really sure what your next step is.
Doing a simple hormone test to see where your levels are and getting a natural recommendation to balance your body could be the missing piece in helping you hit your weight loss goals and start feeling your best.
Consider how many hormone tests just measure at one point in the day. I offer a 24 hr. saliva hormone test where your hormones will be tested throughout the day providing a more accurate picture of your hormonal status – not just your estrogen levels but also your progesterone, testosterone and adrenal hormones too.
And the best part? You can schedule a one-on-one consultation with me where we can go over all the details. No need to come into an office. Everything can be taken care of over the phone & via the mail. We'll go over your results where you'll get personalized natural solutions for balancing your hormones from the functional medicine doctor at the lab.
To get started just send me a DM.

Let's face it. Your body isn't the same as it was in your 20's. As we women age we begin to loose muscle & bone mass.
But staying active, maintaining your strength & flexibility is key to living a full life.
Exercise helps stop, delay, and sometimes improve serious illnesses like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, and osteoporosis. It can help your brain stay sharp and keep you from falling into a funk.
Cardio exercise gets your heart rate up and makes you breathe harder, which builds your endurance and burns calories. Strength or weight training keeps your muscles ready for action. Flexibility exercises help you stay limber so you can have a full range of movement and avoid injury. Balance training becomes important after age 50, so you can prevent falls and stay active.
Lower impact exercise like swimming, yoga, cycling & walking are gentler on your joints and helps prevent injuries. These are also great if you know you have joint limitations but still want to get your daily movement in.
Pick things you enjoy doing like dancing 💃& have fun! It's the only way you'll stick with it.
Reach out if you'd like to talk about getting some support with your health goals. I'd love to connect and talk about what you need to be the best version of you.

Reach for beauty. Go out on a limb. It's always worth it to touch the soul of nature.
It's important to stay both strong & flexible especially as we get older.
Starting your day with a few minutes to warm up your muscles will help you feel so much better.
It will also improve your digestion and that's a good thing because 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut.

🌱Nature is speaking 🌺
Are you 👉 listening👂?
“Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water. Lay your bed where the cat sleeps. Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm. Boldly pick the mushroom on which the insects sit. Plant the tree where the mole digs. Build your house where the snake sits to warm itself. Dig your fountain where the birds hide from heat. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds – you will reap all of the days golden grains. Eat more green – you will have strong legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of the forest. Swim often and you will feel on earth like the fish in the water. Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear. Be quiet a lot, speak little – and silence will come in your heart, and your spirit will be calm and full of peace.”
Saint Seraphim of Sarov
Nature is talking to you, are you listening?
How your Thoughts 🤔 can affect your Immune System 🤒...if you let them.
medium.com Especially if you don’t have it yet
Let's look at circumstances. Many times they can't be changed. 💰👩🦰🌎⏰
But, we do get to decide how and what we think about that circumstance.
Circumstances are neutral until you have a thought about them.
Thoughts are what create our feelings and the good news is we get to choose what we think about.
How do you want to feel today?
Is it, "I'm stuck at home. 🙁 or "I'm safe at home." 😁?
Which thought creates the feeling of despair and stress? Which thought feels good in your body?
You get to choose and then show up and take action from that place. Get into the habit of being aware of your thoughts and how they are making you feel.
COVID-19 and your Circle of Influence. 💢CLEARING 💢
Right now, a lot may feel out of your control.
But, here's several ways you can help yourself (not just washing your hands and social distancing) to become more resistant to the impacts of the virus and better withstand the stress of all the uncertainty.
INFLAMMATION and Immune function are at the heart of resilience.
And clearing is a great way to support your overall immune function.
CLEARING BODY WASTE
👍Hydrate with water, herbal teas, broths, fresh vegetable juices
👍Consume water-rich foods - fruits, vegetables, soups
👍Eat plenty of fiber
👍Add in digestive enzymes
👍Add prebiotics & probiotics
👍Remove dietary inflammatory foods
Gluten, Dairy, Sugar, Alcohol, Processed foods, any foods that personally cause allergic, sensitivities, or intolerances
CLEARING STRESS & ANXIETY
👍Practice stress reducing techniques such as deep breathing, prayer, keeping a gratitude journal
👍 Call a friend or a loved one to stay emotionally connected
👍 Get some exercise, go for a walk, spend time in nature
What's one CLEARING strategy that you can implement that would give you more peace?
Instead of allowing the feeling of fear 😟 to take over let's look for ways to protect yourself & your family and stay healthy during the days ahead. I want to share how you can use food to boost your immune system.
Actually, you could look at the current situation and choose to start making lifestyle changes that will benefit your health everyday moving forward. #HealthyIsASkill
5 Nutrients to Boost Immunity that you can do RIGHT NOW:
🍊 Vitamin C found in citrus fruits and colorful veggies like 🌶 red bell peppers, 🌱spinach, and broccoli 🥦 increases white blood cell production
🥑 Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant & fights inflammation to defend against infection
🍗Vitamin B6 is found in high quantities in chicken & is vital for new red blood cell formation. Stock made from boiling it contains gelatin, chondroitin, and other nutrients helpful for gut healing and immunity.
🐟omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, flax seeds, chia seeds, & walnuts boosts activity of a white blood cell called a B cell - a vital part of the body's immune response
🥣 Plain yogurt (w/out sugar) have probiotics that help heal the lining of the gut so you can absorb all the good nutrition that your taking in
Adding in nutrient dense foods is a great start, and there are many things you can do to be the healthiest version of you. If you are feeling unsure about how to begin making permanent lifestyle changes reach out. I'm here to serve & help. 💜Questions? Drop them below. ⬇️
It's important to know what you put on your skin, in the air you breath in your home, office, & car, and what you eat.
Let's look at this hand soap. It's a perfect example of 🌱"greenwashing"❗️ I'm talking about products that say they are "naturally derived" which sounds good, right?
Flip it over and it says that it's triclosan free, biodegradable, and never tested on animals. This all sounds like it would be a conscientious choice and most people stop there.
But when you 👀 look closer, this is NOT a good option.
Keep reading the ingredient list. I can't even pronounce most of these chemicals, I don't have a degree in chemistry and that's what these companies are counting on.
Just a quick scan and 5 ingredients jump out at me, so back on the shelf it goes.
I want to help educate you so you can make the best choice for your health.
The Think Dirty app and the EWG Healthy Living app will help you know which products are full of toxic chemicals that can, over time, harm your health.
Need a list of top ingredients to avoid? Or, some of the products that I personally use? Let me know. I'd be happy to help. 💜

How are you taking care of yourself this week?
I was looking for something new to add to my Cleanse Friendly recipes and found this Cinnamon Pear 🍐 Green Smoothie!
It would be easy to add some plant-based vanilla Protein powder to make a power packed breakfast for on the go.
Clients have said that my 28 Day Reset Cleanse is the easiest cleanse they've ever done and really helped them figure out which foods were giving them the most 💃 energy while easily seeing which foods just don't work well for their body. 🤢
Let's be honest. There simply isn't a one-size-fits-all diet protocol. We're all different, and what may work for me may not work for you. Need help figuring out what's causing your digestion to be a little or a lot off? I'm here to help.
yayforfood.com Sweet, spiced, and good for you. This pear green smoothie recipe is loaded with healthy spinach and finished with a dash of warming cinnamon.
Feeling moments of 🤪 stress & anxiety 😳 this Holiday season?
SAVE this post ⬇️ and take a few moments to do a couple of these body & mind relaxing 🧘♀️ poses the next time you're feeling overwhelm creeping in.
Your body & mind will thank you! 💜🤗
Are you a "it's got to be done right or I'm not going to do it because I'll fail" kind of person?
Does that same mindset apply to your 🥑nutrition and fitness 🧘♀️goals?
How is that working for you?🚫
Changing your mindset can be life changing. You do have a choice and only you can control the outcome.
Each day I have to make a decision to intentionally move my body. Even when I was attending a conference this past week the ladies and I chose to 🚶♀️🚶♀️🚶♀️walk the few blocks to dinner instead of getting an 🚗Uber.
It wasn't the planned workout I would have done if I had been home but instead of say NO to working out because it wouldn't be "perfect" I decided what I could say YES to and went for it. I want to remember, any movement is better than none especially after so much sitting in a conference!
I've found when I stopped trying to do it "perfect" or "right" and instead just started doing it, everything felt so much simpler.
Done is always better than perfect. 🤜🤛👍
Are you ready to start shifting your mindset? Need help because you feel so stuck? I've got you!
. What's your story 📙?
Is it one of taking back responsibility for your health and recovery...
Chronic health challenges, exhaustion, and frustration with just barely managing symptoms?
I've found that those who choose responsibility and recovery, begin writing each chapter of their life story in a whole new way.
Most of the clients I work with didn't realize they were holding on to so much fear, self-sabotage and clinging to limiting beliefs.
Once we break them free of these patterns...they begin to experience success. It's really that simple.
But it's up to you to decide. You can look at the raw truth of the beginning of your story and not allow it to define your current chapter...and ultimately the rest of your life. There are powerful things that YOU CAN DO to massively change your health for the better.
First ask the question 🤔: "What am I doing TODAY to achieve my health goal?"
Most people when they’re simply managing their symptoms are just putting a band-aid on and that won’t make their problems go away.
There are alternatives but, YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE to take responsibility for your own health. YOUR HEALTH MATTERS MOST TO YOU!
However, there are too many pitfalls and so much confusion along the way if you choose to go it alone.
Think about it...everyone has a suggestion about the best diet plan, how to get your energy back, and feel better. The truth is every body is different and what works for one body may not work for another.
It's also one thing to want to be healthy, but it's tough to implement the actions to achieve your goals.
Next, ask yourself: "Am I an expert who can show myself the simplest way to achieve my health goals, or do I need the help from an expert?"
Finally, ask yourself: "How committed am I to reaching my goals in the next 3 months?"
If you realize your time is NOW to begin a new chapter of your health story...let's explore what's been holding you back and where you want to be.

Breathe in... the feeling You are enough.💐
Breathe out... all the compare and despair feelings.
How are you going to bloom today? What's something new you want to try?
Emotions - Some are useful but don't necessarily feel comfortable.
For example, Courage doesn't usually feel very comfortable but it's necessary to helping us break through and actually do the things that we are so afraid of even trying much less doing.
Determination is not a feeling of ease but it's the one we need in order to get us through to the other side.
Acceptance is a big one! It allows us to accept the things that are out of our control. It is what causes us to accept ourselves and stop judging ourselves and accept what is.
Confidence feels good. I'm talking about the kind of confidence where you've got your own back and are standing committed to your decisions no matter what.
Curiosity puts you in a place to be able to be open to new possibilities in your life.
❓When you look at the results you're wanting in your life, what are the emotions that are going to help you get there?
❓How often and willing are you to feel useful but uncomfortable emotions to get to your goal?
We can only consciously direct our emotions to make sure they are useful in our lives when we pay attention to the top 3 we feel on a regular basis. When we get serious about what's going on in our brains...that's when things will start to shift.
If you're ready to deep dive and get more help with getting control over your emotions head over and schedule a consult and find out if coaching is your next best step.
Choosing to get healthy and making an investment in yourself can seem a bit scary. 😵
Did you know that certain Holistic Health Care expenses CAN be tax deductible? 😮
The IRS Publication 502 lists these allowable expenses*.
👉 Wҽιɠԋƚ Lσʂʂ Pɾσɠɾαɱʂ
👉 Body Scans
👉 Stop Smoking Programs
Most of us are in default mode where we just accept more of the same.
We get so busy in the day-to-day that we forget to dream, set goals, or even desire something more. 💃
We're not living our lives intentionally and without the right support and accountability we keep getting the same old results. 🥺

Hey! I’m Terri Arriola, certified Health and Transformational Life Coach, helping women holistically navigate their 40’s and beyond so they can stop just surviving and start thriving.
You may be asking, “So, exactly what can a Coach do for me?” Are you starting a new season in your life, caring for aging parents, lacking energy, or consistently under slept. Are you looking for your passion, an empty nester, and searching for what’s next for you? Do you know you need to make a change but just don’t have the energy to do it?
I imagine a world where everybody has an advocate for their well-being. As your coach, I’m a master at habit change and will stretch you to achieve your goals that you never dreamed possible. I support you to have the body you want and the lifestyle you desire. I’ll be your cheerleader and help you navigate all the feelings and words of your inner critic. Working with a Coach is the difference between feeling alone and feeling supported. It’s the difference between “Maybe one day I’ll do it.” and “I DID IT!” It’s literally the best investment anyone can make in themselves and it lasts a lifetime!
Without the right support and accountability, the dysfunctional cycle that you’re in will continue and, in many cases, get worse. That’s where I, as your Holistic Coach come in providing you the right SYSTEM, SUPPORT, and ACCOUNTABILITY so you can - finally -make a total body transformation.
