I wouldn't be here blabbing to you about hormonal birth control and the transition off if I had a grand experience. And I'm not going to sugarcoat it and say "Oh it'll be easy, you'll do great!" Because it very well probably will not be easy and it won't be great. But does that mean it'll always be that way? Heck no!
I learned that not everyone will get why you're wanting to get off birth control and that they will try to drag you down and convince you to go back on it because "they're the same hormones your body makes" (don't listen to them; they're very different). Changes are scary and humans thrive on habit and not bucking the status quo. But lots of times it needs bucking and if you don't do it, someone else will! The season of life felt very lonely to me, and I was in tears more often than not. No one understood what I was doing and why this was so important for me to go through.
Oh yeah, and I also learned that our bodies are freaking MAGICAL AF and are designed to heal. Yeah you heard me! Your body is designed to heal and it's craving that balance. You don't have to rely on medications or temporary fixes to cover up your symptoms anymore. Give your body the right environment and tools to succeed and watch it thrive!!
Okay, that sounds all fine and dandy, but I bet you're thinking "I'm a special butterfly. I need more help. It's not that easy. I can't heal my body and my hormones. It's just too hard."
Everyone's hormone symptoms and reason for getting on birth control and healing journeys are different and that's okay. But you know what? If you don't truly think you can heal, you never will.
It's that simple.
Oh, our world is also filled with toxins that are harming your hormones, impacting your fertility, likely causing your painful periods and inflammation, and truly preventing you from living your best life and having your best hormones. Don't believe me? That's fine! You'll find out eventually just how important this step is ;)
My goal is to watch you succeed. To educate you on the ways birth control is impacting you body that your doctor "forgot" to tell you. To help you heal and thrive without being dependent on synthetic hormones to manage your symptoms. And to empower you that you don't need any special degrees or certificates to take charge of your health!
I healed from birth control all on my own. I'm still doing it. And you can do it too. I believe in you! You just have to believe in yourself now and watch the magic happen :) :)
