If you’ve read about syncing with your cycle and have said “Heck yes!” to living more in touch with your feminine body, you may be wondering how you can take your health to the next level and work with us further.
Honoring Your Wild Feminine Side
To get everything you need to learn and apply tour unique 4 Phase Cycle approach, start by downloading our Wild Feminine Cycle Guide.
It breaks down each of the 4 phases into easy, concrete steps that allows you to transform your health without becoming overwhelmed. You’ll also get a series of helpful emails as a follow up the guide which will provide you with everything from elixir recipes to cheat sheets on living your best life.
Cleaning Up Your Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Environment
Already got the guide? Our 4 Phase Cycle Detox is the way to uplevel this new way of living!
It’s the work we recommend doing prior to participating in our Healthy Hormones Group Program (see below).
Don’t let the word “detox” scare you away though. We don’t believe in quick fix cleanses, purges, or food deprivation. We’ve been there, tried that (sadly!), and were utterly unimpressed.
Instead, we believe in supporting your liver, lymphatics, kidneys, and colon to help process hormones and hormone-mimicking substances.
We’ve found that many common female problems such as hormonal acne, hormonal headaches, PMS/PMDD, anxiety/depression, weight gain, cravings, bloating, and fatigue can be vastly improved by boosting the function of these important organ systems.
But supporting your body to do the RIGHT things at the RIGHT times is only part of the equation.
Our mental, emotional, and spiritual environments also matter for good health. We’ve seen it over and over and over again: women sabotaging their best health efforts by ignoring their internal experiences.
That’s why we feel so strongly about the importance of doing mindset work. This isn’t the “glamorous” side of medicine and people get way more excited about lab work (see below), supplement protocols, and superfoods.
And yet, the body can’t heal when the mind constantly reinforces damaging beliefs…that’s because what we think about impacts how our brains are rewired (which happens day in and day out regardless of whether you pay attention to it or not).
If you change the way your central nervous system functions, you change the way you feel in your body. Period.
The Importance of Lab Work and Understanding Root Causes
We also understand, however, that it can be hard to change your mindset when there are underlying physical issues going on.
For example, Megan experienced crazy-intense anxiety when she was postpartum with her first child…and her neurotransmitter and hormone labs totally reflected WHY she was feeling so anxious in the first place.
It’s easy to feel like you’re crazy when your regular MD is telling you your labs are “fine” and that there’s no reason to have the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Let us tell you this now: you’re NOT crazy! It IS real. And in every single woman we’ve ever worked with, the functional lab work accurately reflects the symptoms each lady deals with on a daily basis.
Besides that “aha!” moment that lab work can bring, there are many other benefits to finding out exactly what is going on. To read our full explanation of why we do functional lab work for the women we work with, check out our philosophy on getting lab work.
To help women balance hormones within the structure of their feminine cycle, we use the DUTCH hormone test–DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones–and neurotransmitter tests.
We prefer the DUTCH test over other tests because we feel that it gives the most amount of detailed information and helps us not only understand what is happening with all of the important hormones of the body, but also how they are being produced, metabolized, processed, and eliminated. That’s whole lot of info that we can create personalized protocols from!
However, we don’t consider our testing complete unless we have also taken a detailed look at the signal that the hormonal system is getting from the central nervous system. You could supplement with sex hormones for a lifetime with hormonal imbalances but the issue will never resolve if the endocrine system is constantly receiving distress signals from the brain and spinal cord. To learn about how this system is working, we get saliva neurotransmitter levels at the same time as the DUTCH test.
This is our 3 month course where we teach each individual woman how to create the toolbox she needs to navigate our complex lives in a graceful and healthy manner. We run this group 2 times a year and spots are limited so make sure to contact us if you’re interested in getting this type of testing done.
Have questions for either one of us? Email us! We are always happy to help you become more comfortable and less fearful of your body.
We want to see you living out your passions in the world instead of struggling to make it through your day!
