Women of all ages continue to travel at a velocity completely out of rhythm with who they are. The way a woman lives her life is directly linked to her health, vitality and how sexy she feels! A woman doesn’t wake up one day with PMS, fibroids, being 20 pounds overweight or lupus. These symptoms reflect lifestyle choices made over time.
What I’ve observed in working with women are escalating effects of daily stress, such as burnout, working long hours, skipping meals, low libido, insomnia, too much caffeine and too little time for themselves. My mission is to help women understand they aren't at the mercy of their hormones. Food for Thought will provide tools from myself and my leading expert guests to help you create smart choices.
Ultimately, what we bring forth into our world gives birth to who we are each day. How we nurture ourselves nurtures our overall hormonal wellness. I’m committed to demystifying hormonal issues and various ailments plaguing women in today’s fast paced world.
