The missing link to feeling truly amazing (I made a video for you)

The missing link to feeling truly amazing (I made a video for you)

When I was in my 20s, I weighed about 20-25 pounds more than I do today (even after having a baby last year!) although I was constantly obsessing over food and exercise. 

I was also super anxious and felt like the smallest thing could either lift me up super high or crash me down super hard. My anxiety was manifesting in an uncomfortable, tightening sensation in my throat and I was feeling tired and unmotivated.

I wasn't balanced at all although I was striving for balance all the time.

Looking back and knowing what I know now, I can pinpoint exactly what I was doing wrong:

When I was preparing for my pregnancy with Felix, I learned an incredible amount about the female body and how to support it gently and naturally to be as healthy as it possibly can be.

Amongst my explorations, I found a study that was spearheaded by the Environmental Working Group that showed that an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants were found in umbilical cord blood. The study also revealed a total of 287 chemicals found, of which 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.

When I learned about this, I knew that some things had to drastically shift in the kind of food, household supplies, and skincare I was choosing.

Today, I want to talk to you about how balancing your hormones is absolutely crucial in order to have even, radiant, beautiful complexion (as well as healthy weight, a good sex drive, plenty of energy, a rocking fertility, and a positive mindset that can manage stress well).

At least once a month I get an email from a woman somewhere in the world, 

10 foods and lifestyle choices to increase your female vitality

10 foods and lifestyle choices to increase your female vitality

FEMALE VITALITY.

Sounds good, right, but what does it actually mean?

FEMALE vitality, to me, means living in a strong and active way inside your own female body and life!

It means living in harmony with who you are, with ease, equipped with a sense of humor about yourself and the world.

It means you are actively fueling yourself with foods, people, and choices that are adding value to your life.
