I talked with a lovely woman this week, and her comment was that she was “frustrated with the medical system”.
Have you ever been? I know I have, with my own health and hormones issues, and that is the REASON that I became certified in Functional Medicine!
Navigating our health care system can come with some challenges, and it breaks my heart when women give up on themselves and their health because of it.
- Have you gone to your doctor and come away disappointed, that maybe you were told you were too young for certain tests, or too old, or didn’t get the right evaluation, or felt like no one is listening?
- Or you went in and you didn’t know what to ask for, or what you needed? Even though you knew you needed something?
- Or you came away from testing with your doctor not being told anything? And yet your tests may show pre-diabetes or inflammation or low thyroid?
- Or are you trying to DIY it, the Do It Yourself syndrome?!
The whole reason I became a Functional Medicine Practitioner was because of my own hormone issues in my early 40’s, including being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, adrenal fatigue and fibroids. I had terrible sleep, no energy, messed up periods from the fibroids, and just plain felt bad.
It affected my business, my finances, my relationships, my marriage, my self-esteem.
My regular gynecologist didn’t have much to say, so I went in search of more natural treatment and Functional Medicine doctors.
I took the long way around, because back then this information on women’s health was not easy to find!
So I started my own journey, not only with my health, but with being trained and certified to do the same for other women.
I was able to heal my hormones with the right professional help, the right nutrition and supplements, the right lifestyle changes (which included a divorce), the right movement for my body, and the right mindset.
Here’s the thing, your mood, sleep, weight, energy, metabolism, all determine how you “show up” in your life, with your relationships, family, job, career, for others and yourself.
And your mood, sleep, weight, energy, metabolism are all influenced by your hormones! It’s not just about hot flashes and PMS, your other hormones affect you whether you are 30 or 70!
What other hormones?
- Adrenal and cortisol, your stress hormones
- Blood sugar hormones and insulin, your fat storing hormone
- Thyroid hormones, your metabolism hormones
