About Katie

Feeling a little out of sorts? Perhaps you are experiencing fatigue, irregular or painful menstrual cycles (or maybe none at all), sleepless nights, painful acne? If so, you’ve tripped over the right blog.

Perhaps you came to this blog because you are…

  • Looking for natural tips and tricks for achieving the elusive hormonal bliss
  • Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired
  • A tea lover and want to discover more about the magical world of herbs
  • Ready to kick the sugar habit but just one more Snickers bar….
  • In need of some answers about what the heck is going on with your body
  • Ready to arm yourself with knowledge and are looking for resources.

Well, you’re in luck because I started this blog to provide you with information that you can use to improve your gut and hormonal health. But why take my word for it?

I’ve been there.

Hormonal and digestive upset. It wasn’t pretty. Doubled over in pain, not being able to keep food in my stomach for more than half an hour. Painful acne made me avoid eye contact. Many frustrating nights were spent tossing and turning. I gained weight, I felt sluggish. Dragging my heavy, weary body around was exhausting. I struggled with these symptoms for years, saw several doctors, was prescribed various medications (namely laxatives and birth control), and found little relief. Nothing really worked long-term.

Then I found my own health advocate and went back to school.

I began working with a health coach who showed me how to eat to ease my symptoms. She recommended supplements, helped me to recognize and remove trigger foods, and supported me in changing my diet and lifestyle. With a degree in psychology, I realized I wanted to support people in achieving their health goals too. I went on to take courses in biology and chemistry at a local community college and then obtained my Master’s in the Science of Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon.

Through my educational experience and trials with my own health, I formed some basic standards that I wish to share with you, my reader:

  • A warm cup of tea can go a long way to ease emotional and physical discomfort.
  • You have the key to your health and I can provide the support and encouragement for you to unlock the door.
  • Sugar is not our best friend, but that does not mean we have to deprive ourselves of yummy treats (stay tuned for my no-sugar pancakes!).
  • Knowledge is power, and knowing more about your body will help you unlock its secrets.
  • You can get better sleep, you can manage sugar cravings, you can have an easier period, you can alleviate your acne, and you can heal your gut.
  • To recover, it takes nutritious foods, movement, herbs, and a whole lotta self-care.
  • And lastly, you are worth the effort. And your body will thank you for it!

I want to give you real solutions.

Now that I am in the driver’s seat of my own health, I am on a mission to help you feel better by putting you in the driver’s seat of your health. One of the obstacles I experienced was navigating my way through the allopathic healthcare system and weeding out well-intended advice that did not work for me and had side effects. It wasn’t until I took matters into my own hands that I began to see real improvements in my health.

I know how frustrating it is to be confused about what is going on with your own body. I’m here to be on your team, to listen to your concerns, to tackle your health issues with you.
