Are your hormones causing havoc and you’re desperate for a solution that isn’t HRT?
Your mood swings are making you feel like a crazy lady.
You wake up tired, even after a good night’s sleep, and you never feel fully rested.
You’ve gained weight, your clothes don’t fit and you just feel rubbish about yourself.
You keep being told that you’re fine and it’s a totally natural process, but you feel anything BUT fine.
Your cycle is all over the place and you just want to get everything working the way it’s meant to!
I know how you feel because I’ve been there. My life fell apart because of my hormones. I was tired all the time, snapping at the kids and my partner and my confidence was at an all time low. Changing my diet and learning how to manage my symptoms through using natural solutions changed my life. And it can yours too!
Today my mission is to help women, just like you to do the same; without giving up everything you enjoy like wine, chocolate and a night out with your mates (or is that just me?!). Because I believe that ,making long term changes to how you feel doesn’t have to mean feeling deprived of all the things you love.
Are you struggling to focus and concentrate, have difficulty with your short term memory and feel confused and in a mental fog? You go upstairs and forget what for, you find things in the fridge that should be in the store cupboard and you lose your train of thought mid-conversation.
But what are the reasons this happens? It can signal hormonal imbalances such as thyroid or adrenal issues or the onset of the menopause. It can also be a sign of food intolerances, poor diet and not taking care of yourself. Let’s take a look at the symptoms of brain fog, the main causes and what you can do to reduce it.
The last 10 years have been pretty turbulent for me personally. I’ve been divorced, moved house 3 times (soon to be 4!), been made redundant from my corporate job, gone back to college, started a business and of course had 2 babies who are turning into pretty awesome little people!
It was also the start of my own hormone problems and a journey that I didn’t plan to take but has actually been one of the most fulfilling of my life so far. I’ve gone from being a total stress-head workaholic who’s obsessed with dieting to having a business that I love and fits around my lifestyle, an obsession with all things health and wellness and a body that I am finally comfortable in for the first time in my life.
When my kids were little, I was obsessed with routines. I’ve always been schedule based and LOVE organising so when I read about the benefits of a bedtime routine in helping them sleep, I was all in! As they have grown up I have become more relaxed about it but we still do make sure we stick to the basic principles.
When my own sleep started to go haywire, I read that having a bedtime routine as an adult can really help too and it made alot of sense. As I started to follow some of the principles myself, my sleep improved and now I get all my clients doing it too.
