"Feel the total love and support found when we work together"
I have struggled with unbalanced hormones all my life. Debilitating painful periods as a teenager and even more painful infertility through my 20’s and 30’s. So now as I enter my menopausal years with plenty of bio-identical hormones, not to mention other support for my thyroid and adrenals, to combat the constant burn out that I have had my entire adult life, I felt there had to be a more natural way to balance it all. Harmony of body and soul is what I have always wanted, but it has always seemed just out of reach.
When I started the Healthy Hormones for Women program, I really didn’t know what to expect. Certainly, the zigzag road of trying to find that magic bullet is long. But when I received this comprehensive plan, I was completely blown away. I had no idea how easy and how enjoyable it could be to eat for my hormones. Melissa delivers her knowledge written in a way that like a great book you can’t put down. I had a newfound fascination for food and I had an equally newfound confidence when I went shopping for that food. The recipes are incredibly easy and super tasty. Melissa’s passion for helping me create the changes I wanted was inspirational as we discussed my experience with the program. I felt the positive changes very quickly, and even more amazing is that I have the knowledge that I can pass down to my teenage daughter as she grows into a “hormone balanced’ woman, all with the much coveted harmony of body and soul.

I’ve been on this journey for what seems like my entire adult life. From a young age my greatest aspiration was to be a mom. Family has always been at the center of my life and is the essence of my joy. So to say that my heart was broken when after years of trying to do that which is the most miraculous yet natural thing for a woman to do… barely breaks the surface of my feelings.
When Melissa approached me about 6 months ago, I had undergone all sorts of testing, had tried clomid, the IUIs, experienced a chemical pregnancy and was awaiting my appointment to start discussing IVF with the fertility clinic. I was feeling defeated a lot of the time, especially when all of the testing showed no reason as to our lack of success. The idea of a new program that would give me some control in my life was exciting and hopeful. Melissa reassured me that this program was about me… about preparing my body and finding the imbalances in my hormones. It wasn’t about trying to make a baby, but about improving my health, connecting with myself on a deeper level, improving my self-talk and inviting more light and love to the parts of me that I felt had betrayed me. Her words brought me comfort and hope. Knowing that she understood the pain I was feeling allowed me to be open and trust in a program where I was able to do something that was positive in my world of constant negatives.
The program consists of monthly consultations, a meal plan suited for each part of your cycle, emotional/spiritual support exercises, and much more! Melissa is so kind, knowledgeable and supportive at each consultation. When my emotions ran high she was able to comfort me in a way that only someone who has been on the journey can. I filled out forms about my symptoms so that she could address other health concerns. I feel more in control of my digestion than I did before. There are tips and tricks that will stay with me the rest of my life. I was really impressed with how detailed the meal plan was and how delicious!! My husband and I went with the vegan meal plan, and I can’t believe how much we enjoyed it! There was an element of flexibility in substituting fruits and veggies and others that allowed me to appreciate the process instead of stressing about it.
How do I place a value on what this program has done for me? I can’t say enough, how thankful I am, that Melissa approached me many moons ago. There is no guarantee that at the end of the three months you will have a +HPT, but what I did gain was health and strength in body, mind and spirit, and a friend who continues to cheer me on and support me in the path ahead. I have the steps I can take to make the best me possible, so that I will be able to have a healthy pregnancy, which I have faith will come. I may yet have arduous days ahead, but I am far better equipped to meet those days with greater force and power gained through the knowledge and experience that this program has allotted me. With deepest sincerity, thank you Melissa. God blesses our lives with angels, sometimes they surround us as spirits, other times they are the people around us… thank you for being one of God’s angels in my life. May your pathway be blessed because of the light that you have brought into mine.
When I first started the 90-day hormone balancing program it was tough, not going to lie. Luckily, I had an amazing guide through the whole process to make things a lot easier for me. Melissa was always very attentive to my needs through-out the whole program. Every consultation we had all her attention was 100 percent focused on me, and she was always very caring and considerate. She brought her own life experiences into our consultations to help me better understand things and to also make me feel more comfortable in opening up.
