It’s no doubt, we are going through some challenging times right now… work and schools have shut down, many are taking a massive financial hit, and not to mention the fear of getting sick. Everything and everyone is impacted by this.
But you don’t have to be driven by fear.
This is NOT the time to panic.
Now is the time to keep moving.
Now is the time to reevaluate and recreate yourself.
Sure, business may be slow, but use this time to work on a new business idea or project, research, or redesign your current model better than before.
Focus on your health. If anything, we have all been given a wake-up call to how important our health truly is. Use this time to read books, listen to podcasts, journal and meditate. Fuel your body with nutrient-dense foods and move your body.
Reconnect with the people you love and care for. I think we can all agree, that this pandemic has given us the gift to be grateful for the people we have.
Now is not the time to hide, fear, or panic.
Can you recreate your gratitude?
Can you reconnect with the people you care about?
Can you expand your mindset and skillsets?
Can you reevaluate and reprioritize what’s most important?
When this all comes to an end, you’re going to look back on what you made of this time.
What are some things you are doing to move the needle in your life right now?
I struggled with DEBILITATING gut issues for years... went from doctor to doctor, did everything from MRI, CT scan, endoscopy/colonoscopy... only to get a label slapped on me of “IBS” aka “irritable bowel syndrome.”
I was told to just “up my fiber,” “take a probiotic,” or offered prescription drugs such as anti-depressants or laxatives...
All just to manage the symptoms. AKA put a BAND-AID over the issue 🙅♀️
I was eventually sent to a cololrectal surgeon who told me ONLY way I would ever regain function again would be by removing my ENTIRE LATGE INTESTINE...
Thank God I didn’t go that route... because today, I’m in the best health of my life... gut issues... GONE ❌
I took a functional medicine approach... and got to the ROOT CAUSE of my gut issues.
Many don’t know this, but this was the sole reason I got into functional medicine and opened my own nutrition practice @rachelscheernutrition where I have helped many of my clients regain control of their health.
Because I’ve been there before.
And now I am so thrilled to finally release this ebook, which is the EXACT protocol I used to solve my own gut issues as well as many of clients.

Symptoms of hormone imbalances can be prevalent in a variety of ways:
▪️Inability to lose weight
▪️Changes to hair, skin, and nails
▪️ Heavy/painful periods
▪️Afternoon energy crashes
▪️Inability to sleep
Often treated with a laundry list of prescriptions, such as birth control to “regulate” an irregular period, anxiety/depression medications, or hormone blocking shampoo, there are things you can do to balance your hormones NATURALLY and get to the root cause.
First, make sure you are nourishing your body with hormone supporting foods and healthy fats (see my 4-Week Meal Plan to Balancing your Hormones), such as flax seeds, fatty-fish, coconut oil, and olive oil.
Second, focus on getting enough exercise right for your body, and leveraging the right supplements such as @1stphorm #Harmony which contains:
✨MACA: A root that has traditionally been used to promote better energy, mood and increase your libido (sex drive)
✨Ashwagandha: A root that can help reduce anxiety, reduce stress, decrease cortisol levels, improve thyroid function, and even sexual performance.
✨Calcium D- Glucarate: This is used for preventing certain types of hormone-dependent cancers (breast, colon, prostate)
Lastly, if still experiencing hormone related symptoms, I recommend doing some functional lab testing such as the @dutchtest, available at @rachelscheernutrition

We’ve conditioned ourselves to believe that it is everything outside of us that will bring us happiness....the perfect body, the relationship, the house, the car, the boat, the job, the title.
I used to think this way, just like many.
“If I achieve the body my dream then Id be happy...”
But i promise it’s never enough.
Because the truth is, all of those things are outside of WHO you are.
You are not your possessions, your popularity, your title, your looks, or even your relationship.
I’ve learned that being whole, is a state of creation.
To be empowered—to be free and at peace—it’s who you are.
It’s being grateful and happy in the present moment. Yes having dreams , goals, and ambitions but feeling so whole that you no longer base your future happiness on it. You know that if it doesn’t happen the way you want it to you will be perfectly okay 💕

POLYPHENOLS and the GUT 🍇
There are substances that have a very significant impact on our gut bacteria, like probiotics for example and polyphony-rich foods are excellent helpers to include as part of your overall gut-healing plan.
Polyphenols, which are naturally-occurring compounds found in plants are only about 5-10% absorbed in the small intestine, while the rest make their way to the colon to be broken down by our gut bacteria into metabolites.
Why is this good❓
Polyphenols help increase good bacteria and decrease bad bacteria in the gut! They act as a prebiotic-type substance and feed good bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria strains. They also have been shown to have antimicrobial effect on 🦠 pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria.
· Cocoa and dark cholcate
· Black and green tea
· Red wine
In addition to eating more of these foods, you can also supplement with additional polyphenols with @1stphorm #OptiReds50, which has 50 hand-selected, colorful fruits, berries, vegetables, and herbs (link in bio.)
