Maria shares her knowledge and advice about the following:

  • Maria’s struggles with PMS and her success in treating symptoms naturally prompted her interest and desire to help other women.  “This is really my calling—working with women with hormonal problems.”
  • Maria’s protocol for controlling PMS symptoms includes a clean diet (complete with fat, fiber, and protein), stress management, and herbs.
  • Maria begins working with clients by performing a “breakfast upgrade,” completing a salivary hormone panel, and determining food sensitivities and needed supplements.  Maria shares detailed information about how each step works!

Maria’s work revolves around four aspects of proper bodily function:

  • Liver health—A 21-day purification system is designed to optimize liver function.
  • Gut health—Maria’s clients typically experience a variety of digestive issues.
  • Blood sugar balance—This is vitally important as it determines how insulin functions.
  • Nutrient density—Many people need to increase the nutrition in the foods they eat.  Maria can show you how!

Maria describes and explains in detail the four phases of the menstrual cycle.  Every woman should listen.  It will help you understand your body and your moods.  Maria also tells about one particular herb that can help offset PMS issues, along with how to plan ahead for the menopause years—even when still in your 30’s!  You don’t want to miss her ONE TIP for how to make a small change with the biggest payoff for your health.  Join us for more!
