Do you feel like your health is moving in the wrong direction, and suspect that your hormones, and getting older are to blame?
Are you tired, bloated and feeling down and anxious? Maybe you've been diagnosed with and underactive thyroid, IBS or an autoimmune condition, and you're feeling frazzled and worried. Maybe a lack of sleep is impacting on your health, or you've got stubborn weight around your middle. Are hot flushes interfering with your daily life and sleep?
After the age of 40, the natural fluctuations in female hormones leading to the menopause, and their impact on other hormones, including thyroid, adrenal and blood sugar hormones, can impact on our physical and emotional health.

A quick Google search suggests that chocolate was used as an aphrodisiac as far back as the Aztecs (mid 1300’s to mid 1500’s).
In (very) brief, so that we can get to the recipe, chocolate, or specifically raw cacao contains a substance called PEA, phenethylamine which triggers the feel-good endorphins that make us feel lovely. It’s also made by fungi and bacteria. Hmm I wonder if there’s a microbiome link there??!!!

Take 1 avocado, 1 banana and 1 tbsp of raw cacao powder (add more for taste if you wish). Blend. Add nice toppings such as raspberries and coconut chips. That is all!
NB: chocolate/cacao contains stimulants, which can keep sensitive people awake. ...
