I am really excited that you have taken the time to visit my site; it means a lot to me. I hope that I can inspire you to take control of your health, balance those hormones, and feel great again.
I have gone through some major hormone imbalances and struggled with my own health. I have felt disappointment, discouragement, and felt like giving up. At the age of 17, my body only produced small amounts of the hormones that I needed, and I was then diagnosed with early menopause. I never got my period naturally, experienced horrible insomnia, hot flashes, night sweats, and more.
I have gone through lots of testing that the doctor put me through to try and determine the cause. Unfortunately, they had no idea why this was happening to me. The doctors were only able to prescribe me birth control pills for the hormones in them to take for the rest of my life.
I was desperate to feel normal and healthy and thus began my health journey. I worked with a Naturopath in Victoria, BC, and learned so much from her. I have also worked with Chinese medicine doctors and other alternative doctors to try and increase my hormones naturally.
Unfortunately, nothing was working, and my health was declining. My bones started to become more brittle, and I was diagnosed with osteopenia. I started to exercise even harder than I was before to improve my bones and later found out my bones still got worse. I wasn’t sleeping, I was tired all day, couldn’t focus, and nothing was helping.
I started focusing on what I could control with my health. I learned a lot of ways to balance hormones naturally from working with specialists, doing lots of research, and from my job as a Registered Nurse. My overall health improved, and I was finally sleeping better, had more energy, and reduced my hot flashes and night sweats. I also found a doctor that specializes in bioidentical hormones. She helped me to sleep even better, lose some weight, and finally got my bones healthy again.
I am in my 40’s now, a Registered Nurse, Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach, and hold a nutritional therapy certification.
I believe that to improve your health, it starts with balancing your hormones. My dream is to help inspire women to take control of their health and never to give up. I do not promote a strict diet, hardcore physical exercise, and all or nothing lifestyles. I know just as well as you that this isn’t sustainable. I want you to be able to live healthy but also enjoy life.
Once I hit my 30s, I started to gain weight, lose energy, develop chronic low back pain, and no longer feel young and vibrant. I have worked with various other professionals and now feeling great. I am sleeping every day, have lost around 25lbs, no longer have osteopenia, and have my energy back.
My dream is to make a difference in as many women’s lives as possible and travel the world while blogging. I want to learn about the various health perspectives from other countries and cultures and share them with you. I believe we can learn and grow from everyone.
I do not promote a strict diet, hardcore physical exercise, and all or nothing lifestyles. I know just as well as you that this doesn’t work. I believe in incorporating healthy lifestyle habits. I am your coach guiding you on your own health journey and your cheerleader.
