Are you experiencing any of the signs and symptoms of unbalanced hormones? Have you been living with these symptoms for years? Do you suspect that your hormones are out of balance but your doctor keeps telling you your hormone test results are “normal.” You are not alone! These symptoms are very common. But just because they are common doesn’t mean they are normal.
Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?
- Fatigue no matter how much sleep you get?
- Extra weight that just won’t budge?
- Acne that doesn’t improve no matter how old you get?
- Painful cramps that make you want to crawl back in bed?
We normally associate the term “hormonal issues” with teenagers or women nearing menopause, but the truth is you can be hormonal at any age. As many as 80 percent of women may suffer from a hormone imbalance at some point in their lives.
Age, pregnancy, medications, diet, lifestyle, and exercise can all have an effect on the way your hormones function. Hormones are needed to regulate many of the systems in your body, so when your hormones are imbalanced, it can make you feel pretty crappy and could lead to long-term health problems.
DO YOU SUSPECT THAT YOUR HORMONE IMBALANCE IS CAUSING UNPLEASANT SYMPTOMS?
I have battled many of the signs and symptoms of unbalanced hormones, from acne, to fatigue, to uterine fibroids. When I went to my primary care doctor and specifically asked for my hormones to be tested, they ran the lab work only for progesterone and estrogen. My doctor proceeded to tell me that everything was “fine.” Well everything wasn’t “fine.” I was having clear symptoms of hormone imbalance!
Early on, I made many of the same mistakes that a lot of women are making, including the decision to go on birth control pills (BCP) to help “fix” my hormones. In reality the BCP only turned off my hormones and possibly contributed to other health problems, including developing a fibroid.

Instead of damaging my body for years, I wish I would have been able to properly test my hormones so that I could use more natural methods to properly fix the imbalance. Now I am on a mission to help other women heal their hormones naturally. It is never too late!
HAVE YOU ALREADY SPENT A LOT OF MONEY, TIME, AND ENERGY TRYING THINGS THAT HAVEN’T WORKED?
Doctors visits, blood tests, supplements, birth control pills, patches, creams, herbs, teas, maca, avoiding gluten, avoiding dairy, cutting out sugar, eating whole foods and reading every book on hormones you can find.
TEST, DON’T GUESS
It is time to find REAL answers. It is time to find out what your hormones are really up to. In just three months, I can help you discover underlying imbalances and help you on the right path.
My preferred method for testing hormones is DUTCH test and it offers much more than traditional blood tests.
This test is amazing and has a lot of the benefits of a saliva test but it goes a step above with its ability to assess hormone metabolism. This means we are able to see how estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and cortisol are metabolized – a measure of hormone production and breakdown. These metabolites are important to know because they tell us so much about our health. For example: specific estrogen metabolites have been associated with an increase in breast cancer risk while others have been deemed protective.
