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.
An elimination diet is the gold standard when it comes to figuring out whether any foods are affecting your health (and hormones) but it can seem like a really restrictive and complicated thing to do. In this vlog, I talk you through what an elimination diet actually is, why it can be really beneficial and the best way to do it to get the results you need.
In my opinion, progesterone is one of the most under estimated of the sex hormones. We hear a lot of talk about the role of oestrogen but it is the ratio of these two hormones not being balanced that has a significant effect on our bodies and symptoms. Levels drop significantly as our body goes through the perimenopause and that is one of the reasons for all the symptoms that can be experienced.
The transitional phase leading up to the menopause, is know as the perimenopause. It’s the time when production of the female hormones that drive the menstrual cycle start to decline (usually around our mid-forties but can start as early as 35 in some cases) and it is this stage that you are considered to be perimenopausal. It’s also the time when most of the symptoms actually occur and cause hormonal havoc.
