HOLISTIC NUTRITION FOR HORMONE BALANCE
Feel like you're in a constant battle with your hormones?
I hear you. You wake up feeling foggy and need coffee just to get you going. You're anxious, irritable, or break out before your period starts. Or maybe you are not even getting your period at all. You feel bloated after every meal and struggle to maintain a healthy weight. Some days you just don't feel like getting out of bed.
You're tired of googling for answers, tired of being told that you need to take medication just to feel normal and tired of people not understanding your struggles.
I'm here to help! I've been there. I understand your pain and know what it takes to overcome these challenges. When you work with me, you get access to well-researched nutrition advice as well as personal accountability, motivation and support.
I help you balance your hormones so that you can live life with less stress and more freedom.
The main focus of my nutrition strategy is increasing the nutrient density of your diet using a farm-to-table style of eating. In our modern world, our bodies are often starved of key nutrients that support our hormonal health. I do not believe in restrictive diets. I think that our food should be both enjoyable and nourishing. We work together to find a meal plan that works for your body and supports you in a way that allows you to live your life fully.
Finding hormonal balance takes a whole-of-life approach. While my main focus will be on helping you meet your nutritional requirements, my programs address important other aspects of your life that affect your wellbeing. We go through strategies to calm stress, exercise right for your body, and, most importantly, find joy in your wellness journey.
Jacqui has taught me how to balance my blood sugar and to eat more regularly (to support my metabolism) which made a huge difference in my mood and gave me back my energy. Loved learning more about the female cycle and the different stages and the fact that there lies so much information when you learn to track yourself monthly was huge! She is a wealth of knowledge and always ready to help and give advice.
I can definitely recommend working with Jacqui for anyone that wants to learn more about eating to support your metabolism and to get your health and energy back!
A biostatistician turned health coach
I have always had a strong interest in researching nutrition, which is what led me to get my master's degree in biostatistics. I now use that knowledge to fulfill my passion for helping ladies reach their full potential.
Having struggled with PCOS and hypothyroidism myself, I've navigated through various nutrition strategies to find balance. I've learned how nutrition and lifestyle factors directly impact hormone health and I know what it takes to restore hormonal balance naturally.
I spent years dieting and over-exercising - with many years following a low-carb approach - and learned that restrictive diets do not provide our bodies with the nourishment it needs to thrive. I had to un-learn everything I thought I knew about nutrition and fitness. Supporting our bodies with nutrient-dense foods and eating enough to fulfill our demands is how we create hormonal harmony.
I am here to offer guidance and support as you navigate your health and wellness challenges. I work with clients closely in order to achieve measurable results. Please get in touch if you’re interested in working with me.
