Inspiring your health and wellness by getting to the root cause of disease.

Welcome to You Truly Shine!

a place where you can find your balance

Health is not about being perfect and clean all the time. It’s about having a resilient and balanced body so that you can live life without having to constantly stress and control your environment. I’ve been in the mess of it all… from gut issues, acne, hormonal imbalances, disordered eating, autoimmune disease, toxicity, food reactions, chronic stress, trouble finding balance, and a never ending battle of learning to love myself. Can you relate? My type 1 diabetes diagnosis at the tender age of 16 sent me into a spiral of restrictive diets, vigorous supplementation and obsessive thoughts. Letting go of the more strict health goals sent me into another level of imbalance or should I say “rebellion”. And it took a while until I truly found my own healthy balance. It’s hard to sift through all the BS when it comes to health these days, because regardless of what you put into the search engine, you’re going to find a study saying that it’s good for you and a study saying it’s bad for you. Because of that, my strategy is to use common sense or as I call it “functional medicine”. Knowing just how hard it is to find out what will really work for you I know that I can shorten your journey by helping you understand your own unique root causes. Together, we will take a journey in self-discovery.

Health isn’t about being perfect or clean all the time. It’s about having a resilient and balanced body so you can live life without constantly stressing or controlling your environment. I’ve been through it all— gut issues, acne, hormonal imbalances, disordered eating, autoimmune disease, toxicity, food reactions, chronic stress, and the never-ending battle of learning to love myself. Can you relate? 😬

When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 16, it sent me into a spiral of restrictive diets, vigorous supplementation, and obsessive thoughts. Letting go of strict health goals led me into another level of imbalance, or should I say, rebellion — a swing from one extreme to the next. It took a while, but I eventually found my own healthy balance. 🌿🌼

It’s hard to sift through all the BS and misinformation about health these days. ❌ For every search result that says something is good for you, there’s another saying it’s bad. That’s why I rely on common sense, or as I call it, “functional medicine” to get to the root of a health issue. Without complicating health, we can return to the sexy foundational practices that truly work.  It’s the things we do every day that have the most impact. Would you rather lead a lifestyle that promotes health or disease? The choice is yours. 💭 

You Truly Shine, is my passion project and a place where you can rediscover your own balance 🫶
Let’s talk about why reducing your exposure to environmental toxins is so important 🌱 

1. Your liver is your main detoxifier, always working hard to get rid of toxins in your body. But the more toxins you get exposed to, the harder your liver has to work, leaving less energy for other important tasks (such as keeping your blood sugar balance or processing hormones). Reducing toxins at home is the first (simplest) step!

2. Your endocrine system is like a conductor of a hormonal orchestra. But  toxins, aka endocrine disruptors, mess with this orchestra, causing hormonal imbalances and health issues. Decreasing your exposure to those endocrine disruptors is one of the best things you can do for your hormonal balance. 

Full elimination of toxins is impossible so that’s not the goal. And making too many drastic changes at once can be super overwhelming. So take it slow. The goal is to start making small changes that will begin to reduce your toxic load over time 💚
Exposure to morning sunlight is one of the most effective hormone balancing habits you can create. And it’s completely free! 👋 ☀️ 

This is because sunlight sets our circadian rhythm, or body clock. ⏰ Your circadian rhythm operates on a 24-hour cycle, and it doesn’t just impact how you wake up and fall asleep - it also helps maintain proper hormone balance, restful sleep, blood sugar balance, appropriate detoxification, and proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. 

How is your circadian rhythm disrupted? Well, a lack of natural light, poor sleep hygiene, stress and blue light exposure from screens.

Additionally, incorporating morning sunlight exposure into your routine not only helps regulate hormones and improve sleep but also boosts mood and energy levels throughout the day.

3 simple ways to reset your circadian rhythm and optimize hormonal health:

1. Go outside or open your window to soak up natural light exposure daily for at least 10-15 minutes. First thing in the morning, without sunglasses, is ideal. If you live in a dark place, light therapy boxes might be helpful to mimic natural light. 

2. Stick to timed routines. Go to bed, wake up, exercise, and set your meal times at roughly the same time every day. Start with one routine at a time! 

3. At night, limit sources of blue light. If possible, avoid screens 1 hr before bedtime.
