Thank you Wendi!
I just discovered your wonderful videos, I love your style of education, dedication and enthusiasm!
So good!

I’m trying to find out which hormones the testes and ovaries produce that are similar, apart from testosterone and oestrogen. I know the ovaries also produce to smaller extend relaxin, inhibin, cortisol, vasopressin, oxytocin and DHEA. I’m wondering if the testes do so as well? Seeing they are very similar in function, form and aim. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I’ve research pubmed, sciencedirect etc. but nothing apart from inhibin, activin..

I’m writing a book about energy, emotions, hormones and self-development through Yoga, Ayurveda and Goddesses, giving women their emotional health back in a world designed for men 😉 Seeing emotions are the one subject every Logos ignores; philosophy, religion, science, medicine, I believe they’re also a nexus, along with physiology and hormones, to healing many aspects of self. Emotions can propel us into living well or wanton. Researching emotions I realise understanding hormone health and how to create it naturally, is vital to transform daily life.

So, thank you so much for your well thought out, deeply researched, and playful teaching method! I love the worksheets and fun videos!!
