Daphne's Story: No Period for 7 Years...
I’m really excited about sharing this story with you and I really hope that it inspires you in more ways than one to take your TRUE health seriously, love yourself, and do what you need to do to get your life back on track.
MEET DAPHNE :)
Daphne contacted me about a year ago (in September 2017) and said she’d been debating on reaching out to me for about 2 years…
Being 20 years old, she had struggled with an eating disorder since she was 13 years old - she had been through recovery/relapse/recover for about 2 years, gained some weight, started to love her body and food again, yet still didn’t get a period (which goes to show that just by gaining weight won’t solve your period problems…)
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT SHE DIDN’T GET HER PERIOD FOR 7 YEARS.
She worked with countless doctors, had blood tests done, and even supplemented with progesterone to get her cycle going again, but nothing worked…
So, she decided to finally get a consultation with me and figure out EXACTLY what was going on once and for all.
After going through her detailed questionnaire, it was obvious that she was still dealing with some food issues - (Her past included lots of restricting/skipping meals/calorie counting, which lead to tons of binging, then exercise bulimia, then regular binging & purging, then back to anorexia again, and then to being somewhat recovered).
Not to mention, she was used to running over 26 MILES PER DAY (basically a marathon every day) a few years back, yet was still working out 5-6 days a week at the time of our consultation.
She was used to weighing herself up to 5 times a day and then would decided if she could eat or not based off the weight on the scale.
She was cold all the time, had poor circulation, and had a pretty low BBT.
She said her biggest goals were to eliminate all the stress she had revolving around food, her body, and her hormones.. she just wanted to be at peace... and get her period back :)
After the consultation, we made some pretty big changes to her lifestyle and daily routine. Even though she was a little nervous and apprehensive about changing some things up, I assured her she was going to be a whole new girl in no time and this new chapter in her life would literally be LIFE-CHANGING (and it definitely proved to be, for sure)!
NOW, ALMOST 9 MONTHS TO THE DAY OF OUR CONSULTATION, SHE GOT HER PERIOD BACK… FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 7 YEARS. AFTER ALL THE DOCTOR VISITS, HORMONAL THERAPY/CREAMS/PILLS, BLOOD TESTS, WORRYING, STRESSING, AND STRUGGLING, SHE FINALLY GOT IT BACK!
And not only that, but she got her life back - no more worrying about food, her body, stress, and being “perfect” all the time, but rather just following my advice for her and doing what she needed to do to make it happen.
I’m so proud of this girl and I really hope that her story inspires you to reach out for help, make the changes you need to, and get a plan that works FOR YOU.
Everyone is different - what works for one girl might not work for another. It’s all about figuring out exactly what’s going on with you and pointing you in the right direction, which I’d love to help you do.
Sometimes all it takes is for someone to believe in you, give you a little hope, point you in the right direction, and encourage you to be your best self - I’m more than happy to do the same for you, too.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? If so, check out my different consultation packages and let’s get started right away. Don’t put off your health for another day, trust me… freedom, peace, and joy is totally worth it. You’re worth it.
