More about Christina
HI! I'M CHRISTINA :)
My health journey began when I was 16 and went to the gynecologist due to getting my period twice a month (so fun, right?!) She told me I had PCOS and immediately prescribed me birth control as a “fix”. I didn’t even question this considering all my friends were on it, so I assumed this was normal. After doing my own research 3 years later, I realized that birth control was NOT good for my body as I actually was missing a full cycle, meaning that my body wasn’t working as it naturally should. I also discovered that my symptoms were masked and the issues I had weren't being solved with the pill. This drove me completely nuts!
Finally, I decided to get off the pill and adapt a better diet. After years of weight fluctuations, PMS, crying almost daily, and not being able to leave my bed due to cramps, I began living a symptom-free life.
I wish more than anything that the doctor sat me down and told me what I needed to fix in my diet/lifestyle instead of giving me a pill full of chemicals. I became totally obsessed with the food industry and the way our hormones work, and so I made my passion official by getting certified as a hormone health coach. I'm obsessed with the food industry, farming, pharma industries and how they negatively impact us. I am passionate about health on so many levels and want to make sure everyone I work with learns about this too. I wish all doctors would get to the root of the problem, and that’s where I come in. As your health coach and partner, I’ll work with you to find the solutions you need.
