Everyone has a story... here's mine.
For as long as I can remember, I suffered from chronic migraines, sinus infections, irregular periods, anxiety and depression. I went to every specialist under the sun only to be prescribed multiple medications. At one point I was on 7 different medications and felt like a zombie.
In 2018, I was suffering from EXCRUCIATINGLY horrible periods. I ended up in the Emergency Room after over a month of endless bleeding and pain. I was terrified. After waiting about 2 hours to see a provider in the ER and spending what seemed like an eternity filling out paperwork, a nurse practitioner finally came to see me. We chatted for a little bit and she suggested I take Advil for the pain and see my OBGYN. I left the ER with a $3,000 bill, upset and angry.
I switched to a more holistic OBGYN and demanded care other than being prescribed birth control like my last OBGYN had suggested. After multiple blood draws, a uterine scrape and an ultrasound of my uterus, I was diagnosed with PCOS. I will never forget this moment. In a hospital gown in the cold OBGYN's room when the doctor said "you have PCOS, you probably won't be able to conceive on your own so we can put you on birth control now and then Clomid when you want to have a baby and then if that doesn't work then you can always try IVF." He then handed me a pamphlet about PCOS that mentioned to lose weight. Nothing else. I was so confused. Birth control was my only option? Lose weight? At the time I was barley 120 pounds... I couldn't get pregnant? I thought to myself what the F. How had I gotten to this point? What did I do get PCOS?
After I got home I started researching and I didn't stop until I found answers. I was already a Certified Health Coach and I immediately enrolled in school to become a Holistic Nutritionist and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. I spent the next few years being my own lab rat. I tested different supplements, therapeutic diets and ran so many different labs and spend hours upon hours studying and researching.
My labs came back anything but normal! I had Candida, Mold, Dysbiosis, mineral imbalances and my thyroid numbers weren't optimal. No wonder I felt horrible and my period was a mess - my insides were BEGGING for help! I started my healing journey with the correct supplement protocol after already addressing my diet, rest, exercise and stress and guess what.... I got pregnant naturally!!!!!!
After I gave birth my hormones were anything but normal. I ordered a new set of functional labs and addressed underlying inflammation and nutrient deficiencies. I am now 16 months postpartum and am having regular, painless periods (without golf ball sized clots), I am no longer FREEZING 24/7, I am losing weight with ease while eating more food than I ever have in my life.
If you are feeling hopeless and tired of not getting answers in your chronic illness journey, you are in the right place. If you are ready to take your health and your life into your own hands, you are in the right place.
