You might not be able to have children. Lose some weight. There's no cure. Take the pill.
This was the advice given to me by my family doctor when I was 16 years old, with my PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome) diagnosis.
I carried that with me my whole life, battling symptoms like acne, irregular periods, fatigue, weight gain and facial hair and then came the time I did want children.
I started on my fertility journey which was a heartbreaking battle and I'm so sorry so many women have to go through the same.
I followed medical advice and took the drugs they offered. But I felt terrible and still didn't get pregnant.
I stopped it all. Read every book I could find on the subject (not many at the time!). I changed my nutrition, my lifestyle (I worked in the alcohol industry) and started taking supplements.
I was pregnant 3 months later.
I believe so strongly in the power of food, movement and supplements to support our bodies, that I changed career path, studied and qualified as a nutritional therapist, helping other women navigate their hormonal imbalance conditions.
I knew from my own experience and then working with clients how hard it was to find supplements that were high quality, with targeted ingredients, without taking a million pills a day and didn't cost the earth.
I believed better was out there.
I couldn't find it, so I made it.
