I approached Michelle because I was desperately needing help with my Fertility, Tender Breasts and sleep problems. The Dutch Hormone testing process was really easy and I found the information extremely motivating and gave me a lot of answers on where to focus on to improve my symptoms and work on my fertility. As a result of working with Michelle I learnt to not give up and stay motivated. I have also seen great improvements with my digestion and sleep.
Menstrual cycle syncing
What is Menstrual Cycle syncing?
Ladies, we are truly magnificent creatures, regardless of the daily wobbles and occasional spurts of chaos that comes alongside the privilege. Hormones certainly have a lot to answer for. They headline everything we do daily. But what if we could embrace our hormonal superpowers, live our best life, and bring a little balance to where it’s needed.
Cycle syncing is not a diet or a new fad but instead a clever practice where we align our food, exercise even our diary when possible around the different phases of your menstrual cycle. Optimizing fat loss, balanced hormones, fertility, digestion and mood.
Why does menstrual cycle syncing work for women?
As women our hormones fluctuate on a 28-35 day ish cycle. During this time, we have 4 phases of our cycle. All of which require different nutrients to optimize hormonal function.
How would I know if I have imbalanced hormones?
During each phase, our hormones are at different ratios which is totally normal. But when hormones become out of balance due to poor nutrition, mis-managed stress, poor sleep to name a few things then this can lead to all sorts of issues. One way to analyse symptoms is hormone testing and I do offer Dutch hormone testing when needed. but our body is very clever at leaving us clues if we take the time to listen. Some of the symptoms I myself, and my clients have experienced include:
What are some of the reasons women suffer from imbalanced hormones?
How difficult is it to get hormones back in balance?
At first balancing hormones can feel alien and feel a little like a balancing act. But once you get the ingredients right it changes your whole perspective. The good news is when we listen and nourish our body it can bring balance and flow to all areas of your life including your confidence, your work and relationships. Because when you are in flow everything around you is, would you agree?
Is cycle syncing for me?
The short answer is yes, every woman can benefit from syncing their cycle.
It can be especially helpful if you:
I have trained with Michelle for more than 6 years and I can honestly say she is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. Michelle offers a blend of expert nutritional advice (but in a realistic and balanced way) along with first rate strength and fitness training that really delivers results. Michelle will work you hard but in a way that will make you want to work. Not only does she deliver great instruction and results but she lives her advice and having two small children understands the challenges of juggling work, family and exercise! I have a lot of fun but also know I’ve worked really hard! Highly recommend Michelle!!
