Are you suffering from...
Intense Mood Swings
Insatiable Hunger & Food Cravings
Headaches and/or Migraines
PCOS, Endo, or Fibroids
Guess what, so did I!
I'm Jenn! I'm a women's hormone health coach and family nutritionist. I help women fight these dreadful PMS symptoms by understanding how these hormones affect your body, so you can live a life of harmony with your period!
Master Your Cycle!
If you’re like I was, you may think that these symptoms are totally normal… things that you have been putting up with for so long that they seem fine, and things that you figure you just have to accept because nothing you’ve done has changed them.
We’ve been told that uncomfortable symptoms are just a normal part of “being a woman.” While many of these symptoms are common, they are not necessarily normal.
What happens when we shift and reframe those little things into flashing warning signs that the body creates to let us know that something is out of balance or that our health is in danger? Just like warning lights on the dashboard of your car, symptoms are your body’s way of letting you know that something needs attention.
Left untended, any one of those symptoms could lead to a bigger imbalance. Symptoms are an expression of an underlying imbalance or issue; your body is trying to tell you something. Regardless of the cause, a body that is out of balance is a stressed body… and a stressed body is at greater risk of developing health issues.
When the female sex hormones are imbalanced and the body becomes estrogen-dominant, many health problems can arise.
Conditions caused by imbalances in the sex hormones, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, and endometriosis, are very common in women but are often very challenging to live with (sometimes there are devastating effects like infertility) and to recover from.
The health issues stemming from hormone imbalances are not limited to the reproductive system. Hormone imbalance can also increase the risk for autoimmune diseases, thyroid conditions, blood sugar concerns, and even cardiovascular issues. Autoimmune diseases are much more common in women than in men. According to the NIH, of the 8% of people affected by autoimmune disorders, 78% are women! If keeping hormones balanced can be part of keeping the immune response in check, then let’s do it!
Our job here is not to diagnose or play doctor, our job is to begin to be more mindful of the body so we can make necessary shifts and supports that are needed to bring balance back and restore our good health. Make sense?
