I started on The Pill when I was 19 years old – mostly to combat acne and regulate my cycle. It worked, and I stayed on it until my mid-30’s when we decided to get pregnant. Lucky for us, my cycle returned and getting pregnant was easy. But after giving birth, my hormones were a total mess, so I hopped back on The Pill in an effort to fix them.
Haha, surprise-surprise. It didn’t work AT ALL!
The Pill I was on literally made me feel crazy at times! Mood swings, super emotional, acne, bloating, weight gain, and oh, the RAGE… and I am not an angry person!
My OB/GYN and Primary Care docs didn’t take me seriously. They ran tests, and they both said I was fine… despite still having loads of hormonal-related symptoms.
It seemed like my doctors weren’t listening to me, and the only answers I’d get were unhelpful ‘non-answers’ with no follow-up.
It took a TON of research, becoming an FDN practitioner and thankfully, discovering the @DUTCHtest to finally get some answers.
My experience isn’t unique. I know SO MANY WOMEN who go through this… knowing something is wrong but being assured by doctors that everything is fine. It’s crazy!
Because of my experience and the experience of so many women I’ve worked with, I now offer at-home DUTCH hormonal testing with my 1:1 coaching. We often start with the DUTCH to get a baseline for your specific needs, then craft a program that works for you.
After years of frustration and non-answers, my goal is to help the women I work with avoid the same situations I’ve been through so they can lead healthy, happy lives.
Registration for 1:1 coaching is open. Let’s schedule a FREE Discovery Call to discuss your options and see if DUTCH testing and my high-access coaching program are right for you!
