From imbalance, to balance…
I’m a former Fashion Designer, turned Hormone Health Coach & Master Yoga Instructor. I focus on all things hormone balancing, and my passion is Women’s Health.
On so many levels, we’ve been taught our bodies are broken. From how we “should” look, to the size we “should” be, the the symptoms that are “all in our heads” and so much more.
Hormone imbalance symptoms are not something we need to live with, we can feel optimal!
The mystery of hormones, and the lack of really GOOD support and information on hormones and women’s health brought me to my work today.
As a teen I experienced estrogen dominance symptoms in the form of excruciating Mittleschmerz syndrome. The solution was the birth control pill… which blocked my natural hormones, but minimized the pain.
No one knew then… I was dealing with estrogen dominance (likely due to mold exposure + toxin exposure) and exacerbating the estrogen dominance further while using the pill.
In addition, the pill contributed to completely destroying my gut, which lead to other imbalances like 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.
This is when I took my health into my own hands. I studied wellness from a holistic standpoint. I sought out practitioners that really listened, and didn’t slough off my symptoms, or pump me full of unnecessary medications. 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 was 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.
