I see you...
...because I used to be you.
You have been to multiple doctors and told your labs are normal.
But you don't feel normal.
My name is Dr. Jen.
I am an integrative GYN who specializes in hormone health. I am also "Mamma" to four awesome kids!
As a former sufferer of PCOS and hypothyroidism, I have been on the hormone roller coaster. From digestion issues to fatigue, to hair loss, to brain fog and infertility, I have been there.
Even as a doctor, I was blown off by doctors who said my labs were normal. But I knew something was wrong, it had been 18 months and no baby.
I spent countless hours diving into nutrition and mind-body medicine. I learned how the gut is connected to hormone health. And medications like the birth control pill can wreak havoc on our bodies by depleting our bodies of nutrients and masking our symptoms but not actually treating the condition.
I found out the CAUSE of my symptoms and used that information to focus on gut health, stress reduction, and the right exercise for my body.
I was able to lose weight, clear skin, wake up rested, have more energy, and ultimately get pregnant.
If my personal story is not enough, I have a few credentials.
