Fast forward five years and now I love my period. This year I began working with Nicole Weigl, a naturopathic doctor, to heal my hormones with improved nutrition, herbs, and self-care. Within a few months of closely following her recommendations I saw results.
The experience of having wacked out hormones for several years then being healed in months taught me four things that I know can help anyone who is suffering from a chronic health condition.
- Illness is a gift. It's a big arrow pointing at areas of your life that need attention.
- Hating a part of your body is the least effective way to get it to heal. Loving is the best!
- Reading books and blogs about health doesn't make you better. Actually applying the information does.
- Don't judge yourself if you can't incorporate healthy lifestyle changes on your own. It's okay to get help, even if you're a health coach trained at an amazing school like Integrative Nutrition :-) .
