Leisha Drews, RN, FDN-P, holistic hormone coach, period expert

Balance hormones naturally, restore energy, and fix your periods even as a busy mama!

Have you found yourself searching online for natural hormone balance tips but come away feeling more confused and overwhelmed? Are you ready to have great energy again so you can stop reaching for caffeine just to make it through the day? Do you know deep down that something is off but keep getting told that “everything looks normal” on your lab results? Do pain free, PMS free periods sound like a DREAM?

Girl...I've been where you are and I can't WAIT to help you move forward.

In this podcast you’ll find…Simple & focused nutrition + lifestyle strategies to balance your hormones from the inside out, restore your energy, and actually focus on the root cause of your hormone imbalances rather than defaulting to band-aid solutions that don't work long term.

If you’re ready to feel confident in your body, understand exactly what your body needs, and see results like painless periods, stable moods all month long, and an increased libido, I’ll be sharing my tips & tricks to get you there - without restrictive diets, complicated meal & supplement plans, and definitely without hormonal birth control.

I’m Leisha Drews, RN, FDN-P, Holistic Hormone coach & mama of 3. I’ve been through my share of hormonal issues - irregular, painful periods, hormonal acne, and migraines. I learned how to heal & restore my own body and have come to believe that our bodies have an incredible ability to balance when they're given the right nourishment.

I’m on a mission to simplify hormone balance for mamas so you feel empowered + start to love your body again, because it’s working FOR you and YOU have the power to change not only your own health, but the health of your family for generations to come.

Even if you've been told birth control or surgery are your only options - that couldn't be further from the truth & I've seen my simple, natural methods work BETTER over and over again. I’m bringing you my tried and true methods to feel good right now so you don’t have to wait till you’re done having babies, the kids are grown up or life slows down to be empowered and encouraged in your body and health.

Happy hormones aren’t just a nice idea - they're 100% FOR you and I can’t wait to show you the way!

E136: TBT - What's Causing Low Libido & How to Fix It
Send us a Text Message.Hi friends! Today I am diving into one of the topics that has been a long time coming... Libido! There is somewhat of an epidemic (my words) of low libido in women and this should be more concerning than it is. Low libido is not "normal" and it actually is comes out of running low in other areas of your life.The environment around us, birth control (impacting thyroid function + gut issues), and emotional factors are all culprits that can cause low libido and I break it all down in this episode. If you are a woman or a mom that is in a season of high stress, overwhelm, lack of capacity and/or exhaustion - there is no way your libido is going to be high! It's time to take a step back and find ways to fill your cup.  Listen in to know why that's actually important. In this episode:[04:02] What is libido?[07:20] Environmental factors for low libido[11:21] Emotional factors for low libido[15: 55] Polarity and leaning into your femininity[19:52] My favorite way to increase libido quickly [21:55] A challenge to look inwardOther Episodes You Might LikeEpisode 14: What I wish I Knew Before & After Birth ControlEpisode 16: Birth Control Recovery - How to Nourish & Rebalance your Hormones after Birth Control (Part 2)Episode 66: How I Support My Hormones in Follicular WeekLET ME HELP YOU FIX THOSE HORMONES:FREE RESOURCESLove Your Liver GuideHormone Imbalance QUIZCOURSE + COACHING (When you’re ready to fix your hormones without the drama of figuring it out on your own)Nourish Your Hormones Course1:1 Hormone Coaching - 4 June/July spots left!PRIVATE PODCAST MINI-COURSELeave a 5 star rating on the podcast and DM me the word RATING on IG @leishadrews for $20 off the Restored mini-course on blood sugar balance.

E134: Q&A Thursday - How to Build A Hormone-Friendly Breakfast in 15 min or Less
Send us a Text Message.Who needs a little help with breakfast? As cliche as it sounds I really do think it's the most important meal of the day, so today I'm giving you the template I use to create a hormone-friendly breakfast with plenty of ideas + tips to make it happen quickly. A hormone friendly breakfast is going to have whole foods, plenty of protein, and the right, nutrient dense carbs to keep your bloods sugar balanced and keep you satiated and full of energy until it's time for the next meal - not looking for coffee or a sugary snack just to get you through the morning. Getting the right breakfast is one of the most simple ways to give your body those signals of safety to shut off fight or flight and help your body prioritize hormone balance.
