If you’ve found me on Instagram or joined my Facebook group The Period Project you will know how passionate I am about the menstrual cycle. We as women have spent too many years feeling ashamed of a natural bodily process. Oftentimes silently suffering with painful, heavy and problematic periods with the only answer available to us being the hormonal contraceptive pill.
Period problems are common but girl they are not normal.
They are a sign of a hormonal imbalance, the body's way of telling us something is up. And I’m here to tell you there is an answer out there and that nutritional therapy can and will change your life. It’s time to say good bye to painful, irregular and heavy periods, time to say au revoir to PMS and time to say adios to problematic periods.
1 in 7 couples in the UK has been diagnosed with infertility and the number is rising. Infertility is becoming a huge problem in the Western world and there are many factors which can affect your fertility.
Have you been told since your teenage years that if you have sex you will get pregnant and it’s as easy as that? Perhaps you thought you could get pregnant every single day of your cycle but you’ve been trying for months even years now and nothing.
Pregnancy and maintaining a pregnancy relies on a delicate balance of hormones and if these are already out of whack (hello problematic periods) or you have nutrient deficiencies (hello bad diet) then it’s not as easy to get pregnant or stay pregnant as you might have thought.
Nutritional therapy can be used to support all areas of your fertility. Including egg and sperm health, miscarriages and getting you ready for fertility treatments such as IVF.
Are you ready to take back control of your fertility?
There is nothing quite like a cuddle with a newborn baby and the fulfilment I get from helping my clients achieve their healthy, happy family is second to none.
I often get asked how I ended up doing this for a living and it wasn’t a direct path for me. I have a degree in Fashion Design and a past life making designer clothing. As a child I wanted to be a vet, then an archaeologist and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be helping create families.
I found my calling through my own health problems. Seeing the power nutritional therapy had on my life prompted me to retrain to help others. Many of the issues I help women with now I have experienced myself. My own fertility issues, painful, heavy, irregular periods. My digestive symptoms were taking over my life and I had cystic acne that I had put down to bad genetics. I'm now free from all these symptoms.
I use the functional medicine approach which means I look for the root cause of your health problems. I believe that nothing in the body is ever ‘unexplained’ and with the right digging we can always work out where your symptoms started.
Nutritional therapy is an evidence based practice and uses a wide range of tools to assess your health including functional testing. So don’t be surprised if I ask you to get some blood tests or do a stool test to help me work out your root cause.
There is no one size fits all approach to nutritional therapy as everyone is different. We all have different genetics, different upbringings, different home environments, different diets and different exercise routines and these all alter the way we express our symptoms.
When working together we will make small sustainable changes. We will be in contact often and you will feel supported the whole time with check-ins.
