Weight Loss | Balance Hormones | Increase Energy | Gain Physical Strength | Boost Delf-esteem

Hi, There!

I’m Veronica.

I specialize in hormone balancing and I help my clients with chronic inflammation & chronic health diseases.

I also help my clients with weight loss issues. I am a firm believer in using whole foods to combat and fix chronic disease. And with that comes the loss of unwanted weight. I am a firm believer in balancing hormones in order to help my clients lose weight.

Let me help you shed weight without counting calories, without feeling deprived of foods and without feeling like you are starving. I want to help you, like I have helped many of my clients to lose the weight you’ve been unable to lose so far. I believe in feeding the body plenty of whole foods to balance those hormones and take off those stubborn pounds. You will eat plenty of food with a variety of herbs and spices and continue to shed pounds, even without spending countless hours in the gym or on the treadmill.

Are You In Balance?

Are you having trouble losing weight even though you are doing countless hours of cardio? Have you tried multiple diets and spent hours in the gym lifting weights only to see the scale barely move in the direction you want?  If so , more than likely it’s because you are suffering from hormonal imbalances. A few pounds come off but then nothing. You are stuck at the same weight forever it seems. If this is you, then you need to find out the main hormone that causes the imbalance. Once you fix the corresponding imbalance the weight will begin to come off without the need to count or restrict calories.

Estrogen is secreted by the ovaries, fat cells, and adrenal glands. It is responsible for female physical features and reproduction.

Let Food Be Thy Medicine, Let Medicine Be Thy Food

Many people who experience adverse reactions to food don't realize that a specific food is causing symptoms. Food reactions are often overlooked as a contributor to chronic health issues. If you suffer from a food allergy, you are likely aware of the allergy and already avoid trigger foods. If you or your healthcare practitioner suspects that you have a food intolerance or sensitivity, the best way to identify the foods that cause negative symptoms is eliminate those foods from your diet for a certain period of time, then reintroduce those foods one by one, paying close attention to your body’s reaction. Veronica is here to help you in process. A creating good health starts with understanding your digestion!
