This morning I saw this quote and a post from Kamilia Smith, M.D. from Charleston House Gynecology about her sweet papa who was taken by a hate crime 20 years ago way too early because of the color of his skin and the thickness of his accent - both of these things made me stop and think...may you use time today (and every day) to stop and think and make changes if necessary on how you approach your life, treat others and live your life.
Earlier this month we had the opportunity to attend, Turn Up The Pink, hosted by Dr. Smith and Charleston House Gynecology. We love working with a client that is so focused on the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of women.

Founded by Renowned Dallas OBGYN, Dr. Kamilia Smith, Charleston House takes a personalized approach to women's healthcare and wellness, improving the overall experience of life throughout all stages of life.

Your health isn't black and white, nor should your healthcare be.

Women are multi-faceted beings. We are feminine and masculine. We are mothers and entrepreneurs. We are strong and gentle. We are leaders and followers. We are students and teachers. We are growing and healing.

Dr. Smith built Charleston House to serve all women and the WHOLE woman. Women who are navigating life, their hormones, stress, sexual health, marriage, motherhood, menopause and many other phases.

The women at Charleston House are women just like you - mothers, wives, daughters, sisters. This community is full of women who share in your experiences.

This is a safe space for you to come as you are.

Join our community today 💙

Hello, Sunshine! ☀️

We're ready for summer days by the pool with a margarita in hand, right?!

But let's have sunscreen in the other hand, okay?! 😉

And remember, apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and at minimum every 2 hours.

You can now purchase your favorite sunscreen, @Supergoop at Charleston House!

We are very intentional about which products we offer you at Charleston House and we're excited for Supergoop to be one of the first!

1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with in their lifetime. Wearing sunscreen can substantially reduce your risk of skin cancer.

Since I was 5 years old, I knew I would become a doctor. As a child, I knew exactly what I wanted for myself, and I had no reason to believe that I couldn’t achieve it.

Fast forward to now...my family might describe me as someone who has a hard time making decisions.

My daughters are 9 and 13. They know who they are. They trust their voice and have no problem using it to say what want, think, and deserve. They are unafraid of failure. They are rarely losing an argument to me these days...

Where did that sense of certainty go that our younger selves had?

At what point are we told by society that we must be less, say less, and shrink ourselves to fit into the expected mold?

Why is it that we (me included) are now, all diving into self-help books, podcasts, and memes in order to feel validated?

At some point in our lives, we, as women, experience a shift. We don't trust our voice and/or we don't prioritize our health.

So how are we supposed to navigate all the competing narratives that bombard us from the media to the board room, to the playground, and beyond?

Especially information regarding our options to lose weight, regain our energy and navigate decisions about hormones as we age.

I don't know the answers to these questions but I do know that we can learn to trust who we are.

Collectively. As a community.

Let's embrace each other's journeys, honor each other's struggles and not hide behind perfection. Vulnerability and messiness might get us there AND an admittance of fear of what's to come as we age out our male counterparts.

This is the best gift we can give ourselves and to each other that no one else can 💙

🍷April is National Alcohol Awareness Month🍷

Let's be aware and know the facts, so our choices are informed 👊

A study published by RAND Corporation showed that women saw a 41% increase of heavy drinking — four or more drinks within several hours — during lockdowns.

We're not here to shame, we're here to share so you can make educated and empowered choices for your health.

We all know alcohol has negative side effects, but how does it actually affect women?

🍷Alcohol Lowers Testosterone - Testosterone is an anabolic hormone which contributes to gains in lean muscle mass. Lowered testosterone means fewer muscle gains, less muscle mass which means a lowered metabolic rate which results in a hard time losing fat.

🍷Women experience alcohol differently than men - Women metabolize the chemicals at a slower rate which means the impact of alcohol is much stronger and faster for us.

🍷Affects our vitamin retention - Drinking alcohol forces the liver to use your store of antioxidants and vitamin C to break it down. This leaves you vitamin and mineral deficient, if you weren't already.

🍷 Alcohol is a major risk factor for breast cancer. In fact, it raises your risk almost as much as taking hormones.

Again, this is not to scare you but to inform you.

Are we saying never have a drink?! Nope. You know we enjoy a glass of wine at Charleston House!

But know your facts and make educated choices for you and your lifestyle 💙

Deciphering between painful periods and endometriosis can be difficult.

Most women experience some level of discomfort from their periods that disrupts their day-to-day life, but still do not have endometriosis 🤕

But if you are finding that your periods are debilitating and paired with one or more of these other symptoms, it may be time to speak to a doctor.

There are surgical and non-surgical options to treat endometriosis. Talk to your doctor about which method is best for you depending on your symptoms, age and lifestyle.
