Nutrition for Women
- Is your period a pain? Or nonexistent?
- Do you have hot flashes, weight gain, and other symptoms of menopause?
- Are you struggling to get pregnant or maintain a pregnancy?
- Are you sick, tired, achy, and uncomfortable throughout pregnancy?
- Did you just have a baby and are struggling with weight, breastfeeding, depression, sleep, or your health in general?
- Do you have melasma, fibroids, edema, endometriosis, or other signs of hormone imbalance?
All these examples above are affected by the delicate balance of thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones. The human body is an auto-regulated system – it knows exactly how to be healthy and be in balance. Our modern diet and lifestyle do not give the body the nutrients it needs to be healthy and in balance.
I work with women on increasing metabolic rate, increasing certain nutrients in the diet, decreasing stressors (both psychological AND physiological), and hormone balance, among other concepts. I will help guide you away from degenerative, inflammatory, and inefficient foods, towards nutrient-dense, functional, digestible, pro-metabolic foods that are more suited to human physiology.
For those trying to conceive:
Does nutrition affect fertility? Well, considering it affects obesity, diabetes, cancer, and nearly every other illness and bodily function, it can be presumed that yes, fertility is affected by diet and nutrition!
Foresight, a clinic in England that has been using nutrition and lifestyle changes, and diagnostic testing (including mineral analysis!) to enhance fertility and increase the chance of a successful pregnancy for over 30 years, released a study in 2010.
It was an in-house survey of their results from 2002-2009. Prior to coming to Foresight, most of the the study population had failed IUI, IVF, and/or ICSI cycles. 1,568 couples completed the full Foresight program with an 81.9% success rate (healthy birth) and only 4 miscarriages. Even the 2,518 couples that only did a part of the program, but did not complete it, had a 63.7% success rate!
Average IVF success rate: around 30%, depending on age.

“Many women join La Leche League, a support group that helps mothers who want to nurse their babies and gain information and confidence about keeping their infants healthy. Seldom are they told, however, that in excess, estrogens may reduce the flow of breast milk. One of the reasons so many women become discouraged and switch to bottle formulas is the frustration of not being able to produce enough breast milk.”
