My Story

HELP! My hormones are out of control! Menopause is a challenging life transition. Hormonal upheaval causes emotional, relational, mental and physical upheaval too! What a mess! A mind and body out of sync—what to do, how to cope? That was my dilemma for four years. My two biggest hormonally related issues were migraines and a 20-pound weight gain.

I had been eating a diet of 95% plant-based and 75% whole foods—unrefined, unprocessed foods for 20 years. However, I had a major sweet tooth and was addicted to sugar.

In 2017, I had to take medical leave for 3 months. During that time, I decided to go 100% whole food plant-based, eliminate all sugar from my diet, partially fast and pray to strengthen my immune system and support my body in healing itself.

An unexpected transformation started to take place. My migraines disappeared. Weight began to fall off. The brain fog lifted. My thinking became clearer. I felt amazing! I was convinced that 100% whole food plant-based nutrition and NO sugar in my diet was the only way to live. Five years later, and I have maintained the 20-pound weight loss and enjoy fruit and dates as my sweeteners.

This is how and why H2Y Wellness was started—to walk alongside and coach other women struggling with perimenopause and menopausal weight gain challenges.

I praise God for His help in overcoming my sugar addiction and His power in maintaining this lifestyle change. He has provided plants to nourish and heal our mind, body and spirit, which are His.

He can do the same for you! I’d be honored to help you begin your journey in clasping the hand of God and embracing lifestyle change. And experiencing the power of God to do above and beyond anything you ask or think.
