Because I'm the queen of keeping things simple. But then I thought to myself, That's not fun. So we got a tree yesterday, we put the lights on, oh my goodness, we brought the outdoors indoors. It's a real tree. It's so gorgeous. And it's completely changed my demeanor. I'm now all in on Christmas.

And we're gonna learn more about that in Robins hormone reset That's coming right up in January. So mark your calendars January 29, it starts 28th. If you're a VIP, we're going to talk more about that later. But here's the deal, I scheduled a date. With a girlfriend who lives about an hour and a half away, we're going to meet in the middle, to have a spa day to go to the spa to have lunch to really be with each other, let go of the world for a moment and just connect and be in love. And so I would love to hear post right here. What you are going to do with a girlfriend once a month, that's it just once a month, and then you'll have to look forward to all month long.

And it could be like anything, you could go for a hike, you could go for a walk on the beach, you could do some knitting time, you could just have her over for lunch, you could go play instruments and sing together. You know, whatever it is that you too love to do. Do that. But do something that's really nourishing. So post right here, what is that for you? I want to hear we're gonna get some good ideas. But once a month, I want you to have something on the calendar where you're meeting up with a dear sister friend. Okay, dear sister friend. Ah. Alright, so I want to answer a couple of questions today and each Wednesday when I come on for hot hormone tip because I think it's way more fun if I answer them like this rather than just typing out and answer in our group. So today's lucky winners of the questions, just going to choose the last two that came in on our on our poster health questions here post. The first one is from Susan Reinberg, from Susan Weinberg. And I don't mean to embarrass anyone here. So this is private, it just stays in this group, please. Whatever is shared in this group does not go outside this group, right? Hold hold all of this sacred, right? This group is a sacred safe space for us to share, for us to share, you know some of the crappy things that are going on with our bodies. So keep it safe, keep it sacred love off, and at least three other women whenever you pop in here. And let's bring everyone in this group up. We're gonna do that right now. This is what we do in all my programs. And that's how we get better is that we really support each other. So April. Let's see. I'm going to go back to Susan. She's asking a question about her 24 year old daughter who has bad PMS cravings, mood swings, but she also just really struggles with gut issues. And let me just see, I don't think I can. I'm not she doesn't share what the gut issues are. But she does say that she's treated SIBO which is small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. She did that with a an integrative doc and then they also did a food sensitivity test and she's reactive to everything. So now her diet is very limited. And so her question is of current recently read that hormonal imbalance can trickle down to gut issues. Not sure if that is true or not. Anyone here a seed cycling? Is it worth a try? So let me answer your question just to address some of the issues that your daughter is facing. And I love that you're thinking about, you know, how gut issues actually correlate with hormonal issues because they correlate big time and forget us unhappy, nothing is going to be happy, we're going to see all sorts of horrible symptoms. And that was the way it was for me. I had terrible digestive problems. So you know, I was constipated. And I didn't know it was a thing. I always had pain in my gut. I had bad PMS, I terrible moods, you know, yes, I had terrible cravings. I was just, you know, really irritable, grumpy, all of it. And, and so really kind of all disease begins in the gut. And you know, you can definitely start healing a lot when you start focusing on digestion. One of the issues though, with just focusing on digestion, is that unfortunately, if your adrenals are somewhat dysfunctional, I you know, it used to be called adrenal fatigue. But it's really what's called the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal axis issue, it's a communication issue, just where the metabolism is kind of messed up. And so thyroid comes into play your adrenals come into play, your liver function comes into play, and absolutely digesting comes into play. But what happens is, is that if you don't have good adrenal function, you're not going to have good digestion just the way it is. So the more stress that the body is experiencing, the worse off your digestion is going to be, because keep in mind that, you know, if you're stressed out, you're not digesting very well. Because when we're stressed when life is busy, when we're, you know, dealing with what I call the hormone deal breakers, you're gonna learn more about that, and robins hormone reset coming up in January. So things like the wrong diet for you. nutrient deficiencies, which, you know, based on my genetics, I am the nutrient deficient gal, let's I take a lot of extra supplements. What else, you know, poor relationships, toxins that can just take us out, you know, exogenous toxins, internal toxins, because when we import digestive health, guess what, we're producing a lot of internal toxins that are going to continually make us sick. So one of the things that happens with SIBO, so, so really, it's, it's bacteria in your gut where it shouldn't be right, it kind of creeps up into the small intestine from the colon. And it just causes lots of problems. But, you know, you need to address digestion from the top down. So if there's something going on the small intestine, it's because there's something going on in the stomach, right and potentially, in the mouth. So you have to start there. And you never, never, ever do a food intolerance test, right out of the gate. So in my private program, we don't do the food intolerance test, till you've been in my program for over six months. And the reason is, because you will become your, your test results will show that you're reactive to everything. Because that's how it is when your adrenals are not strong when you haven't done some gut healing. So the bad news about that is that it's very discouraging when you come back reactive to so many things. It leaves, you know, the list of what you can eat to this, and you're just get really grumpy about it. And it's impossible to do. So don't do food intolerance, testing, until you've really done some gut healing and some adrenal healing. Okay. Give me a thumbs up on that. Yes. All right, and then save that for later when you've really done some good work. And then you can tolerate a lot more. So what I would say is seed cycling, I've never done it myself. I know a few girls who have done it, some like it, you know, and so you could definitely try that. I think what's really important for your daughter right now is to take a look at I don't know, it's gonna be really hard for her to just stick to those five or six foods that you listed here. But what I would do is I would completely avoid wheat and all gluten, I would. I would avoid all dairy for a bit because it raises something called insulin growth factor one IGF one, so it, it acts like insulin and we become insulin resistant, then we get all these issues that your daughter is experiencing, and then she really needs to increase her stomach acid and so you know if she could do even just a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and a little bit of water before each meal that's going to help that SIBO a lot. And,

you know, let's not take on all of these weird things. You know, I don't, I don't like a diagnosis because then we focus on that what we focus on expands and we don't want anything bad expanding. So focus on healthy, strong hearty digestion for your daughter and just really like, work on chewing her food better, you know, building stronger stomach acid without apple cider vinegar for right now, if you were in my program, I would do something a little bit different. But she can definitely do that. I think that will help her so much. And then just avoiding those two food groups for right now. It's a game changer for her. And then she'll see her moods a little bit, you know, more balanced and she won't have so many cravings, and really up her protein intake. Yeah, really up her protein intake, and the cravings are gonna go completely away. So just a few shifts sister, and your daughter is going to be feeling so much better, right? So much better. So if she's not willing to do those things, then you might let her find her own way. Right? Because sometimes we have to hit rock bottom, before we're willing to make those more important changes. Alright, so I want to send Susan and her daughter lots of love. So good. Thank you so much for posting and looking out for your family. So great. All right, April Clark. So good. Okay, so she posts quite a lot here. Congratulations for getting your IUD out. It sounds like it was a big deal. But it's, it's also a big deal to have it in because it's hormones, right. And it's like taking the birth control pill. And unfortunately, it completely suppresses your own sex hormone production. And and that's not a good thing. So it'll just, you know, there are very few women who can take birth control like that and feel well, like I don't, we certainly don't have any in our communities. So it's great that you've taken that out that you can now let your body your body's hormones get back to doing their thing. So good. And what I read here in your post is that you've had achy bones worse insomnia than usual occasional headaches, occasional hot flashes, moods, an attitude of fine, that's so great to hear. And you you say that your doctor wants to do surgery because of a little bit of a prolapse. So what I would say is, you know, when we focus on just one thing like that word, then not addressing the whole person. So if you've got a prolapse going on, you've got other stuff going on. And you've mentioned a few of those things by the occasional headaches, occasional hot flashes. But if there was a prolapse happening, there's probably other stuff going on. And I bet if you had some really good support, all of that would heal, including the achy bones, because I'm not really sure what's going on there either. So what we want to focus on is plugging the holes, right of the hormone deal breakers, those things, those root causes, that are taking your body out. So again, you know, I share my top 10 and robins hormone reset, you definitely need to attend that. But to start with, you know, just just really start, you know, taking care of yourself a little bit better, you know, replacing missing nutrients, we have the natural hormone Solution Program, that is a fantastic place to start. If you want more information on that just post right here, I'd like more information, I'll post the link for you. Because it gives you some really vital nutrients and that alone can Yeah, can can change everything. It's a it's a complete program, though, because we don't just sell supplements, you have to you know, learn how to eat and learn how to do movement and a bunch of other things. But it's all for hormone balance, right? It's very specifically how to take care of yourself for hormone balance to feel well to feel fabulous. So So these things are like they're not my role, they're your body's roles. So consider, you know, joining the natural hormone Solution Program to where we can really help you a little bit more. It's a self paced program. It's not my one on one program, but there will be an invitation to my one on one program after Robins hormone reset. So if you really want to do testing and dive into your stuff, and really be supported for a year, and really like heal all of these things, that's the place for you. But for right now, you know consider the natural hormone solution program where we can support you with some really good nutrients and some good kind of step by step to get you started because unfortunately, things don't get better unless you really do something pretty profound. So unless you really replace those missing resources, right the right proteins, fats and carbs the right mineral Other than vitamins, getting your restorative sleep each night, you know getting your movement and unless you really start to understand how to do those things for hormone balance, then you just get more and more symptoms like the symptoms get worse, they get more serious, you get something called accelerated metabolic aging and then that just takes you out right? Those are all the big, the big diseases that we're headed towards, if we don't listen to the small things that our bodies are telling us. So I just really want to acknowledge you April for posting here and for sharing what's going on with you. You're just a friggin Rockstar for doing that.
