I’m partnering again with Kristin from Thrive by Food, but, this time, we’re working to help balance my wacky hormones. Cliff Notes: I took hormonal birth control (the pill) for 15 years, gave birth to Quinn, and then things just weren’t right after that, so I stopped all forms of hormonal birth control about a year ago.
Since then, my body has been all over the place with regard to symptoms – some months better, some months worse than others. I’ve struggled with everything from acne and mood swings to fatigue and night sweats and more.
I tried seed cycling for about 9 months and really loved it. I saw so many improvements with regard to my hormones and overall wellness. Really, I thought seeds were magical ! But then the seeds stopped working. I was no longer experiencing the hormonal “balance” I had in the past, and a number of old symptoms started to pop up again. My periods also started to get somewhat irregular.
I always knew seed cycling was just a “nudge” in the right direction with regard to a woman’s hormones and it definitely improved things for me overall, but it didn’t completely fix all of my issues – and that’s why Kristin and I are teaming up!
I want to share my experience working with a functional practioner related to hormones, testing, and all that good stuff, so keep your eyes peeled for new content. A bunch of you guys have inquired about my hormonal experiences, so I thought this would be the perfect way to share and help you guys!
On Wednesday this week (July 18th at 3:30 PM EST), Kristin and I hope to set the stage for some of my personal hormones issues (and maybe yours too!) with a live session on Instagram. We’re going to chat about hidden symptoms of hormone imbalance and take live questions from those who attend. If you think you might have some issues related to hormones, I hope you decide to tune in!
