Hormone & Adrenal Balance
I'm Stephanie, an amateur bean-to-bar chocolate maker, traveler, wearer of all things cozy, spontaneous dancer, and lover of long walks (cheesy and true). Thank you for visiting The Wellness Common. My goal here is simple: to partner with you to create a healthy mind, body, and spirit so you can live fully.
What Brought Me to Do This Work?
In my late-twenties, I experienced a massive breakdown in my body: nagging injuries, chronic fatigue, brain fog, dizzy spells (the number of walls I walked into is mind-blowing), constant upset stomach, gas, bloat (picture third trimester pregnancy minus the pregnancy), significant weight loss, and no menstrual cycle. I was told tests were normal, tests that weren’t normal were flukes, and these symptoms were “all in my head.” I felt hopeless, scared, dismissed, and frustrated with the traditional medical model. While I had a strong background in mind-body movement, I was missing some crucial pieces: actually connecting and supporting my whole self--mind, body, spirit--while I discovered (and began to address) the root cause. I sought support from mentors and practitioners, became a certified Laser Life Coach, and pursued training in functional and integrative nutrition while I went back to school to become an RDN (registered dietitian nutritionist).
I know many of you have your own unique story. Whatever is going on, it can be frustrating, exhausting, and lonely. If you strive to connect to and support your whole self and discover the root cause, not just address symptoms with quick fixes, I’m here to help. My goal is to utilize a sustainable and realistic mind-body functional and integrative approach to support you on your wellness path to feeling good and reaching your health goals. It takes work, every day, and investing in yourself is worth it. Respecting your body is worth it. Our bodies give us the freedom to create every smile, bust out every sweet dance move, and cherish every hug. That, my friend, isn't crazy talk, it's the cat's meow.
With Love, Stephanie
