I’m Jenna aka The Period Guru, and I’m a Board Certified Functional Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) passionate about women’s hormonal health.
My mission is to empower women with body literacy, so they can be their own best health advocates.
That’s why I’ve dedicated my life to support women suffering from hormonal imbalances such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Endometriosis, PMDD, and infertility. I use functional nutrition and diagnostic testing to get to the root cause of your symptoms.
Growing up I struggled with weight gain, painful and irregular periods, PMS, digestive discomfort, and intense mood swings. Little did I know all these symptoms were part of PCOS. When I was finally diagnosed I was relieved to have an answer! Now, the road to recovery could begin.
But one day, I decided I was done listening to doctors who told me that my only option was the birth control pill and that PCOS was something I just had to “live” with.
So, I went to nutrition school. I changed my diet and lifestyle to support my body and started taking targeted supplements. Today, I’m 20 pounds lighter, and my mood swings and sugar cravings no longer get the best of me because they’re non-existent!
I’m happy to report that I’ve been in remission and have lived a symptom-free life for the past 3 years.
And this is possible for you, too!
If you have PCOS, endometriosis, suffer from painful/irregular periods, or infertility, and you’re sick and tired of your doctor telling you there’s nothing you can do except take the pill and lose weight, then you’ve come to the right place!
As a PCOS Thriver, I know what it is like to suffer from hormonal imbalances and digestive discomfort.
This is why my mission is to empower all women with the knowledge on how to be their own best health advocates, so they, too, can achieve pain-free periods and optimum fertility.
Experience & credentials
I initially received my formal training through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I became a health coach and was trained in more than 100 dietary theories.
I then began studying women’s hormonal health more deeply at the Integrative Women’s Health Institute, and eventually became board-certified through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
In 2019 I became certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist Practitioner (FDN-P).
My own life experience and the continued success of my clients has taught me that any hormonal condition can be put into remission with diet and lifestyle changes, and my mission is to see these same results for YOU, too. I even wrote about it in my book, 7 Steps to a Healthier You: An Attainable Guide to Health. My work has been featured in The Huffington Post , Mind Body Green, the Elephant Journal and NBC.
