Enough was enough, I had to take my power back into my own hands.
That’s why I’ve spent years of my life and tens of thousands of dollars educating myself, so I could find the answers to my problems, take control of my health, and heal myself from the inside out.
One realm of study unlocked all the answers for me and gave me the key to reclaiming my health… the answer? Hormones.
Hormones are like chemical keys that are sent through the bloodstream and unlock different physiological responses from organs. In short, hormones control nearly everything in your body, from your heart rate, to your menstrual cycle, to your digestion, hormones play a big role.
That’s why when our hormones become imbalanced, we notice it.
But not unless we have the tools to do so…
After years of taking synthetic hormones everyday, my natural hormone production stopped working properly. The results were huge changes in my body, mental well-being, and understanding of myself.
During this time, I felt so scared, isolated, and alone. But as it turns out, I wasn’t as alone as I thought…According to new research, “…80 percent of women suffer from hormonal imbalance. Some women live with these imbalances without even realizing it; in fact, 70 percent are unaware of conditions like PCOS that may have manifested due to hormonal irregularities.”
I often think of how different my life would be today if I had learned more about my body in school.
How would my life be different if I had known how to identify hormonal imbalance?
How would my life be different if I had learned how to find balance in a natural, holistic way?
How would my life be different if I had elders and guides that instilled in me the confidence to really, truly listen to my body?
