2014 – Are We Getting Jet Packs Now?

Thursday, January, 2, 2014 < Back to Blog Posts

From around 1960 and on, we were pretty much promised we would travel around with jet packs in the future. Rocket-propelled transportation was going to be our destiny, and I couldn’t wait. Underwater cities, vacations on the moon…it was all ahead of us. Sure, they did project that we would be able to talk to one another and see each other with those electronic boxes in our own homes…and that pretty much did happen. But I’m still lamenting the jet pack. How about you?

In this time of making New Year’s resolutions…what are you lamenting? What’s bothering you? Are you worried about being in perimenopause and menopause? Do you have anxiety about this whole phase of your life?

When we were dreaming about life as one of the Jetsons, we just didn’t think about the fact that we would probably be in menopause when all this lovely technology was making our lives amazing!

It would be nice if there were a magical answer to all of us skipping this phase of life…no periods, and nothing else to follow it. That would have been nice…but it’s just not the case.

Actually nearly 60 years ago, someone was thinking of the future. That’s how long Remifemin® has been around. Someone was thinking about women in menopause. It was before the world came up with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Remifemin has a solid history. It’s a unique herbal extract, not a pharmaceutical medicine for the treatment of menopausal symptoms. It’s hormone free. All those facts were important to me when I was deciding how I would manage my menopausal journey. I feel good that I am using a product that has been around a long time and is safe and effective for women who choose not to take estrogen. So, don’t spend your time worrying about perimenopause and menopause this year. Do your homework. Explore www.remifemin.com on that crazy invention called the Internet. (One of those future projections that really did come true!) We really do have a wealth of information at our fingertips, and it pays to take the time to learn all you can about this time of life.

Come to think of it…there are probably a lot of good reasons we aren’t all running around with our own jet packs. As George Carlin once said, “Have you ever noticed that when you're driving, anyone driving slower than you is an idiot and anyone driving faster than you is a maniac?"

A lot of menopausal women flying around with jet packs…hmmm, that is a daunting thought!

I do know the world is a better place if we have a lot of menopausal women taking Remifemin. I hope that in 2014, you’ll see how Remifemin can work for you.
