Hormones + Wellness

What would happen if you stopped worrying?

You know what would change, if you actually deeply trusted the universe / god / life? Well, you would stop worrying. Because, if you actually trusted that you were being taken care of, you would just show up and do your bit, and leave the rest to the higher intelligence that governs us all. But, for some reason, we humans...

Are you pushing yourself too hard, unecessarily?

Do you constantly ‘push through’ when you are feeling depleted, and when your body is deeply asking for you to slow down? I find it so confusing that we expect ourselves to be ‘on’ / ‘productive’ / ‘performing’ / ‘pushing’ ALL of the time. When we live this way, we ignore the innate cycles and seasons of our bodies, and...

Burnout is not your destiny

Burnout is NOT your destiny.

In some seasons of life … we lose our mojo, our spark, our zest. Burnout takes over. Everyone else’s needs take over. Our imbalanced hormones take over. We can feel like a complete shell of our former self. We can wonder …  When will it ever be time for ME again? Will I ever feel better? And, most scarily …...

Things I wish every woman knew.

17 reasons why modern women are struggling so much – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Modern women are struggling – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  In a world where we have more opportunities than ever before, modern women seem to be drowning under the weight of everything we have on our ‘life plates’ – landing us in a space of pain, hormonal disharmony, exhaustion, and disconnection.  So, why is it like this? I wrote a list...

Burnout: when people around you don’t get it.

Have you ever felt like the weirdo within your life, because you had (or have) ‘less energy’ than other people around you?  Have you ever experienced a burnout, and felt completely alone because people didn’t get it, wouldn’t acknowledge it, and couldn’t understand it?

Dear exhaustion

Dear Exhaustion, thank you for showing me the way back home (to myself).

(a love note to exhaustion) Dear Exhaustion, You are my greatest teacher. For most of my life, you were my constant companion, and I never knew why. I accepted you as ‘normal’. I thought that this feeling of utmost depletion and burnout was ‘just life’ … for all of us. I learnt that in order to function the way I...

Why your hormones can't balance

Why your hormones can’t balance.

There is a reason that hormonal imbalances, burnout, exhaustion and overwhelm run SO many women’s lives and health.  And, this reason is usually the very last thing to be addressed.

Adrenal fatigue, more correctly described as ‘HPA-axis dysfunction’,  is the most common scenario that I see as a Naturopath in a clinical setting.  Modern life offers us many perks, but one of the downfalls is that collectively, our health is suffering – and so often, this is simply from burning the candle at both ends, being too busy, and never slowing...
