My own hormonal health journey began more than 25 years ago with debilitating endometriosis. There were times when I was unable to leave my house for days due to the pain. Conventional medicine had not helped me and it took many years to be formally diagnosed. I was only in my twenties, when arguably I should have been in the best health of my life, but my symptoms were growing progressively worse. AND they were badly affecting my life.
I knew something had to change but it took me years to find that “something”… a nutritionist. Within just a few months, my health was dramatically changed. This was undoubtedly a major turning point for me and for the first time in years, I was able to manage my symptoms. In fact, my experience had such a profound effect on my health, and on my entire life, that I decided to re-train as a nutritionist.
Fast forward to my early fifties and I have had first-hand experience of the symptoms of peri-menopause. BUT in my late forties, I thought that I had been lucky enough to escape the dreaded menopausal symptoms that I had heard so much about. However, a holiday to Greece changed all that…
During what should have been a relaxing family holiday, in a beautiful location, I began to experience constant hot flushes and night sweats. Very quickly the amazing summer break became a holiday to remember for all the wrong reasons…my sleep was disrupted and I felt tired, irritable and anxious. I snapped at my family and my mood was low.
This all took me by complete surprise. I was a nutritionist after all, I had spent thousands of hours studying the science and supporting other women with symptoms just like mine. I returned from my holiday feeling exhausted but also determined to continue to thrive in this new stage of my life. I realised that I had continued to apply what I had learnt in my twenties, but my body’s needs had changed and that I needed to adapt my approach. So, I did and I am back to feeling myself again. I now help other women do the same, using a 5 step system so that they can feel like the best version of themselves again too.
