Get Healthy:  Optimize your Body

Whether symptom relief, egg health, or general health are what you looking for, we simplify the paths you can take so you can make the best decisions for yourself!  We dive deeper than "eat healthy" or "take your vitamins."  You need specifics.

What are the Right Supplements for Me?
If only it were as easy as creating a list of supplements every woman should take.  Given our diets, symptoms, conditions, the type of supplement(s) you need varies. The good news is we have resources for you to both inform you and guide conversations with your practitioner(s).
Supplements and the purpose each serve
Interview with a supplement expert

“Those who think they have no time for healthy eating will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”

Edward Stanley

Which Diet is Right for Me?
The food we ingest has an incredible impact on how we feel and our appearance.  For example, our founder tried the AIP diet and her anxiety disappeared!
However, when making the decision to change your diet, it can be overwhelming to determine how.  We break down the main diets for you.
Remember - do what's right for you, take baby steps.  If still unclear, talk to a nutritionist.
