Empowering and educating women to create happy hormones and healthy periods through whole- food nutrition

Kristen Ballard
Nutritional Therapist & Primal Health Coach

A nutritional therapist is a wellness expert who works with clients so they can create their own adaptable, holistic, mind-body health plans. The nutritional therapist educates the clients on nutrient-dense, whole food nutrition and all the necessary nutrients that allow for optimal health. The client then gets to decide which direction they would like to go with their nutrition, while the nutritional therapist provides support and continued education. We also work together to track the client’s cycle, which empowers the client to become more in tune with her own body and her specific needs. A lot of women see positive changes in their periods and menstrual cycle simply by tuning into their bodies and learning more about the female hormonal cycle and what a healthy period looks like!

How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance?


Do you suffer from:
  • Stubborn weight gain- especially around hips, thighs, waist - headaches/migraines
  • Lethargy
  • Brain fog
  • Nighttime waking/interrupted sleep - insomnia
  • Night sweats/hot flashes
  • Go to bed tired, yet wired
  • Decreased/low libido - PMS
  • PMDD
  • Painful periods
  • Long, heavy, or irregular periods - breast tenderness
  • Mood swings/irritability/anxiety - hair loss
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Bloating
  • Acne
  • Cravings
  • “Hangry” symptoms- shaky, irritable, dizziness, headaches with missed meals - increased appetite
  • Ravenous in between meals
  • Hungry almost immediately after eating

If you’re like I was just a few short years ago, the word hormones makes you think of only negative things like PMS, awful periods, and feeling crazy. When you hear the words hormone imbalance, you probably think of all the usual suspects like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. But there’s more to the picture than those three hormones.

Most women don’t even realize they have a hormone imbalance because we’ve been taught that all the horrible things we experience month after month are completely normal and something we have to learn to live with.

But what if you didn’t have to live with it? What if you could have happy hormones and healthy periods by starting at the top of the hormone hierarchy? Check out my post on the hormone hierarchy to see how an imbalance with your sex hormones starts with insulin and cortisol.

What role does nutrition play in overall wellness?

Nutrition isn’t as simple as calories in/calories out. Think of food as information. Food sends signals and information to every part of the body. The immune system, the endocrine system, the gut bacteria, the brain, the muscles, the organs, and especially the power plants of the human cells, the mitochondria, are continually receiving signals from the foods we feed it. We control whether those signals stimulate inflammation and chronic disease or if they encourage overall health and vitality. Together, we will discover the nutrition your body needs to support your health and wellness goals.

What role does exercise play in overall wellness?

Amazing things happen when we stop viewing exercise as a means for weight loss and instead use it as a tool for overall health. Exercise improves memory, learning retention, and concentration while boosting your energy and improving your mood. As there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to exercise, we will tailor a program to fit your needs, wants, and abilities.

What role does sleep play in overall wellness?

One night of insufficient sleep can cause inflammation, increase insulin resistance, and mess with the body’s hunger signals. Not such a big deal for one night, but when it happens repeatedly, it adds up quickly. Continual sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Because the brain only detoxifies at night during quality sleep, disrupted sleep interferes with the brain’s ability to repair and regenerate. There are many factors than can lead to disrupted sleep, including hormonal imbalances and a flipped circadian rhythm. We will work together to get the sleep patterns back to normal.
