So many young women suffer from hormone issues – like Victoria, who was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) in her teens. Victoria suffered from all the classic symptoms: severe acne, irregular periods, period pain, headaches, low energy, severe sugar cravings, low mood and lower back pain.
She tried various medications which worked to clear up some symptoms for a short time only to have other symptoms worsen and then all the symptoms would come back after the course of treatment. In the end it was suggested that she go on the Pill to manage her PCOS but this only made her headaches more frequent and her moods low. She didn’t want to be on the Pill and worried about what it was doing to her body.
Six months on, Victoria is medication free. Her energy is back, and she no longer has to prop herself up with high sugar foods. She feels like she can get out of bed in the morning instead of wanting to stay there all day. Her skin is clear, moods are stable and her periods are becoming more regular, and pain free. Just like its supposed to be.
Here’s what she said:
“It has been amazing working with Rae. It is so refreshing to have someone who understands, wants to help and not just put a band aid on the situation. Rae took the time to dig deep into my symptoms and history to provide the best solutions and we worked together to find out what my body responded to best. The results surpassed every expectation. It feels so good to finally be on top of my PCOS after all these years and in a natural way that doesn’t require taking a whole lot of medications. My quality of life has improved so much, I have more energy, feel healthier and happier and that is the most rewarding.”
When we take a 360degree look at health and take the time to find out what’s underneath it all, the solutions can be simple.
If you have had an experience like Victoria, know that its not a thing you have to put up with just because you’re female. These symptoms are not normal and interventions don’t have to be complicated when you understand the body systems in play.
If 2021 is the year you want to put your health first, to get more energy, get out of pain and feel better, its not too late to get started. I have limited spaces in my diary for new clients so let’s get together to see how I can help.
