Cheryl’s biggest accomplishment in life as she entered into menopause was her children – some still living at home and others had children of their own.
She watched them play outside and felt guilty because she didn’t have the energy to keep up with them and be the mom she wanted to be.
Cheryl was snippy at times but knew deep down that’s not who she was at her core.
She watched her family leave in the mornings to go to work and school while she cared for the home.
She spent a lot of time on the couch, scrolling through her phone with no energy to do the things she longed for in her heart.
Not only did she dream of being an energetic mom, but she wanted health. She also longed for a closer relationship with her husband so they could enjoy intimate date nights and travel. Cheryl wanted the energy to meet friends for mid-day coffee and serve in her community more.
Deep down, she knew she was created for more.
She had tucked away her personal dream of becoming an author, but still believed one day it could be possible. But that would have to wait.
At this time, Cheryl was:
- Unsure what to eat and bloated after meals because she was attempting to follow conflicting dietary information on the internet.
- Lacking confidence because she was more than 50 pounds overweight and didn’t feel good in her skin.
- Tired during the day because she was waking up in the middle of the night multiple times drenched due to hot flashes from hormonal imbalances.
She had been struggling with her health and weight for 20 years.
As she planned a big trip to Israel, she knew it would be physically taxing on her body and mind if she didn’t work on her health in preparation for the trip.
She did everything she knew to clean up her diet and started walking to build her stamina. She even lost a little weight.
The trip was one of the best experiences of her life, except for the pain and swelling she experienced in her legs and feet, which only worsened when she got home.
It took several weeks to recover. She realized she couldn’t manage her health on her own and prayed for answers and someone to guide her.
Cheryl and I crossed paths at a conference shortly after her trip and she shared some wonderful memories.
A few weeks later, our paths crossed again and she shared a little more about her health struggles.
My question to her was simply, “can I help you?”
This was the day everything changed for Cheryl. Her eyes brightened as if she had hope for the first time in a long time.
She had a lot of questions and wondered:
- Will I be able to do the work?
- Will you be able to help me?
- Will I be able to afford it?
These questions aren’t uncommon. They are great questions, and I’m glad Chery was able to meet herself where she was and communicate her concerns.
I shared more about my Go With Your Gut Method and how I help clients heal digestive issues and balance hormones naturally so they can feel good in their skin and get their life back.
She decided to go with her gut that day and hired me to help her 😉
A Better Weight Loss Solution in Menopause than Weight Loss Pills
We focused on cleaning up her diet and did a good cellular detox – the right way. Detox is a buzzword right now, but most people don’t get results because there’s more to it than drinking a tea you get from the local health food store.
After getting amazing results with step 1, we continued by looking at a few advanced lab tests and did a very focused gut healing protocol and worked to balance hormones with natural herbs.
Today Cheryl has:
- Lost over 50 pounds and kept it off for several years.
- Got rid of bloating and other digestive issues.
- Gained confidence in what she needs to eat to fuel her body and metabolism.
- Balanced her hormones naturally – and is free from fibroids, hot flashes, and mood swings.
- Improved her relationship with her kids and husband and is able to keep up with them on the basketball court and on nature walks
- Written and published her book, “Letting God Lead”
The best part for Cheryl is seeing her children and husband follow in her footsteps and improve their health right along with her.
Her entire family is thriving now because she took the first scary step and said, “I need help and I’m willing to accept it.”
If you’re experiencing something similar…
You are not alone!
My question to you is the same one I asked Cheryl the second time we met… “Can I help you?”
I help women improve their digestive system so they can balance hormones naturally and realize their full potential.
With over 20 years as a medical professional, studying the mind, body, and spirit from a traditional and natural standpoint, and 10 years dedicated solely to finding the missing pieces to this gut-hormone connection so women can truly heal, I’ve made it my mission to help others connect the missing pieces of their health puzzle so they can get back to feeling like themselves again… or maybe for the very first time.
Nothing is impossible when you have a strategic plan and a guide to support you through the process.
