One of the best things I’ve ever had was a hormone check


This post has been coming for a long time.

We talked about it in detail in a podcast, but I also wanted to write a blog post about it.

This is a topic that many of you have asked about. Resistance to hormones, thyroid and insulin.

Yes, I made the whole thing solo podcast episode which you should definitely listen to, but I also wanted to summarize all the pride here.

It goes without saying that I am not a doctor. I just share my experience with hormones and what I discovered after giving birth. So, obviously consult a doctor, investigate yourself.

I actually involved a hormone specialist, and that was very helpful to me. Be your own guru and advocate for yourself.

One of the best things I’ve ever had was a hormone check

Confidential conversation hormones:

I had those a light, magical pregnancy and a crazy birth, couldn’t have gone any better. And so I just thought my recovery would be easy. SHOCKER: It’s not.

Immediately after the baby arrived, I felt like I was wearing a costume. I get into my overall experience with a body image, but I also felt tired, anxious (like the sound of a doorbell sending me over the edge) and just fucking shitty. It turned out to be more than just postpartum anxiety.

My neck was swollen and so I checked my hormones. Someone pointed this out to me in Pilates, and I just fixed it. This woman kept bothering me to go check the level (thank god) and so I finally did. Then my life changed and I was so relieved when I found out I had a little thyroid, progesterone and estrogen.

♡ For two-way access, I also started visiting a doctor of Chinese medicine. This supplied my toolbox with all the tools I needed to balance my hormones and return to a happy, bright person with energy. I am actually getting into supplements given to me by this doctor and my specialty for hormones.

Let them check because a lot of things can affect your hormones. You want to come back every 2-3 months. It is not one and over. Even the environment also affects our hormones.

Be sure to listen to the podcast as I dive deeper into all the above points.

The point is that after checking the hormones, I switched from crying and feeling anxious every day, and at the same time I looked like a slime with a rat’s nest on my head and felt 100%.

Sure, a lot of women describe the type of “fog” that sets in after a baby is born, but that’s not always normal. If I talk about this with a little clarity now, I realize I’m NOT OK.

So if you’re out, reading or listening and feel depressed, anxious, tired of AF and just not yourself, I want you to know that it’s normal not to feel normal – but you can fully seek help. It will also change your life, I promise.
