Hormone Balance & Replacement

There is so much you can do to create hormonal harmony by making a few simple changes to your lifestyle.

Begin by nourishing the body with healthy food-non processed, organic,
adding in more green leafy vegetables, and foods that are loaded with
antioxidants, i.e. fruits. Eliminating foods that cause inflammation, and
eventually disease. Cultivate calm and peace into your life (yoga,
meditation) which in turn can help turn off the fight or flight stress
response.

However sometimes, when things become chronic, our bodies can benefit from
some adjustments, and this is how we can help cultivate happy hormones:

  • Detoxing and cleansing the liver
  • Supplement to help heal the gut
  • Vitamin b-12 to help with fatigue
  • Nutrition coaching geared towards your hormonal type
  • Aroma Touch Therapy Sessions which helps with balance & healing
