From imbalance, to balance…
I’m a former Fashion Designer, turned Integrative Hormone Health Coach and Yoga + Spirituality Teacher. My passion is helping women of all ages and stages balance their hormones and balance their lives.
On so many levels, we’ve been taught our bodies are broken. From how we “should” look, to the size we “should” be, to the symptoms that are “all in our heads”.
Hormone imbalance symptoms are not something we need to live with, we can eliminate these symptoms and we can feel optimal.
My own hormone story, and the lack of really GOOD support and education on women’s health and hormones is what brought me to my work today.
As a teen I experienced undiagnosed, painful estrogen dominance symptoms. The solution was the birth control pill… which blocked my natural hormones, but minimized the pain and symptoms I was experiencing.
No one knew then… I was dealing with estrogen dominance; likely due to mold exposure + toxin exposure and poor detoxification pathways.
In addition, the pill and multiple rounds of antibiotics contributed to completely destroying my gut, which lead to further hormone imbalance, and autoimmunity.
One imbalance lead to another, and another and another. The imbalances were like the proverbial snowball rolling down the hill, gaining size, strength and speed.
Mold exposure, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Hashimoto’s, infertility & loss, hormone imbalances, histamine intolerance & oxalate intolerance.
At one point in time, I was reacting to almost every food I ate.
Frankly… I was miserable, I was in pain, and my symptom list seemed endless. It seemed no one could help me. I saw countless doctors and practitioners, and made almost no progress for years.
This is when I took my health into my own hands. I studied wellness from a Functional and Integrative standpoint. I sought out practitioners that really listened, and didn’t slough off my symptoms, or pump me full of unnecessary medications. I fired the practitioners that weren’t listening to me. I focused on nutrition, lifestyle changes, nervous system support, supplements, and yoga to heal.
I started to make progress…
I eliminated my pain.
I minimized my food sensitivities.
I regulated my sleep.
I reclaimed my energy.
and I brought my hormones back into balance.
This wasn’t the easiest work I have ever done, but it is the best work I have ever done. And this today, is why I help other women optimize their hormone health.
Because YOU deserve to feel optimal.
