I know the health challenges that women face. My own struggles started early in life when I experienced hormone imbalances and debilitating PMS. At the time, I didn’t know there were answers but, looking back, I can clearly see how my body was suffering from a less than optimal environment.
I was always searching for answers and solutions, and the medical system’s only answer was the birth control pill. Like many other women, however, my body didn’t do well with those synthetic hormones and they only made me feel a lot worse. Over the past 20 years as a health practitioner and acupuncturist, I began to optimize myself and accomplished huge improvements in my health. Over the years I have honed my knowledge, helping hundreds of women obtain optimal hormonal health.
I was able to create a healthy little boy weeks before I was to turn 38. My hormones were balanced enough, that part was easy. But when it came time to create my second child, I would keep miscarrying. At that time doctors had no answers for me. My health crashed shortly after the second year. On paper, there was no explanation for it. The labs my doctors ran were normal. Eventually we discovered that I had a rare blood clotting issue, low progesterone (likely caused by stress) and compound heterozygous for MTHFR. This was just my first insight into possible explanations for miscarriages. But why did I feel like I was non-functional? I dove deep into the world of functional medicine for answers. Functional Medicine labs revealed for the first time what was actually going on in my body. I did have some genetic weakness for clearing toxins and optimal methylation. After all, my father, two brothers and grandparents all had cancer. I knew I needed more support than the average person. But now I could actually visualize why I felt so bad and had something to measure my health by as I began to apply the new tools that functional medicine offered. My life began to transform and I actually felt better than I ever had. I had a personalized and targeted approach to my wellness. I studied extensively with the experts in Functional Medicine and Nutrigenomics. I soaked in their wisdom and became my own doctor and health advocate. Health imbalances always have causes.
