I was diagnosed with PCOS three and a half years ago. The diagnosis was good news for me, since it explained all the frustrating symptoms that I had been experiencing for years! I had horrible cystic acne that kept getting worse no matter what I did. I couldn’t seem to lose the 5-10 lbs of weight after my last pregnancy. My periods were always irregular and I had strong pelvic pain in my left abdomen. I felt trapped because every book I read said that there was no cure for PCOS and that other than taking strong medications certain symptoms would not be relieved. I was never a fan of drugs and decided to research on my own to overcome PCOS. I didn’t find an answer until I stumbled upon FLO Living. Throughout my 3 month program I surprised myself by not only meeting all the goals that I wanted to achieve, but also accomplishing things I never expected. My skin cleared up, my ovarian pain diminished, I lost the rest of my baby weight, and most importantly I found an amazing sense of peace in my life overall – peace with body image, having another child, my work. Emotionally, my lines of communication and boundaries in relationships are clearer and healthier. My sexual relationship with husband has blossomed. I feel more productive in my life – even in everyday chores. Life is more fun! I am completely letting go and couldn’t feel more free and light about doing so! Alisa’s approach is different than anything I have ever tried and so effective at achieving results.
My healing journey began in February at my annual OB/GYN exam. A routine sonogram to check a fibroid revealed that I had developed cysts – one on each ovary measuring 2 centimeters. To me that seemed pretty large (and I checked on a ruler)! These weren’t like two little pimples! I had had no pain, no symptoms of a problem. How could this be?! Would I have to have surgery? I’ve never had surgery! I don’t want surgery! When I asked my doctor about proactive steps, her only advice was to monitor them and she would see me in two months for another sonogram. WHAT??!! Not being one to just sit around for two months and do the whole “wait and see” thing, I immediately reached out to my gal pals. Come to find out, they all have had or have cysts, too! Evidently a common issue. My dear friend, Margaret, didn’t hesitate for a moment and said, “You HAVE to call Alisa”. What do they say? When the student is ready, the teacher will appear? Well…I was SO ready and she appeared! I was willing to try anything. I had nothing to lose and hopefully, something to gain. My initial sessions with Alisa focused on my lifestyle – diet, activities, relationships, the emotional work I was doing with my life coach, etc… It seemed that she was more interested in seeing how our work together could compliment what I was already doing in my life – which I loved! It was all about the positive and working in conjunction. She put me on supplements to help my body process hormones better. I started drinking more water. That was coupled with food experiments – what healthy foods satisfied and sustained me. I wasn’t eating nearly enough fruits and veggies, so that was increased. Then – about a month into my program – it came time for the Spring Cleanse. You eat “gentle foods” – veggie soups, whole grains, fruit, veggie juices – to help your liver detox your body. No bread, no cheese, no milk, no caffeine! GULP! How was I going to make it through a whole week…and work?! Well…I did. And it was the best thing! I felt better…lighter…both physically and emotionally. Everything seemed clearer…my thoughts…even my skin! That week taught me to slow down, to nurture, to look inside, and to get rid of the things in my outer world that simply weren’t necessary anymore. Now it’s mid-April and time to go back for another sonogram. Alisa and I spoke prior to my visit and she told me not to expect any changes…that it was too soon. I was fine with that. I knew I was doing all I could and they were great things for my health nonetheless. So as I lay on the table, with no expectations, the technician tells me, “The cyst on the left ovary is gone” and then “Oh! The one on the right is gone, too!” I’m in shock. I’m elated. And as a tear rolls down my cheek, I’m in awe of the power…the power this body has to heal itself. How amazing is that! If I treat it right (if I treat ME right), then amazing things will happen. Ladies, change is never easy. As Alisa says, “You take what information you can use now and you can always go back and incorporate the rest later”. It’s not an all or nothing process. By putting certain changes into action, you will see first hand what your awesome, powerful, strong bodies can do. This was and will continue to be a life-changing event in my life. And can you believe all these good things started with two cysts…
When I turned 25, my health suddenly started going down the tubes. I was chronically stressed out. I lived all the time in an ever-fluctuating world of emotional turbulence. My skin was very broken out in acne. And my periods were terrible. Eventually, a dear friend suggested that I contact Alisa to see if she could help. At the time, the six-month program felt like a lot of money to me, but I realized that being successful in my life was dependent upon my health, so I made the investment to work with Alisa privately for those six months. Something amazing happened during that time. She helped me transform my relationship to my body. I began to really talk to my body. Food became a source of nourishment and joy, instead of angst. My skin’s health improved. And I began to really see where I was letting boundaries get crossed all the time in my life in various relationships. Alisa guided me in developing a very healthy and beautiful relationship with my anger, and I am now excellent at speaking my truth in the moment when a boundary has been crossed. I now know that unless I get outside and lie down in the grass or walk under the moon during the days before my period, I will have an unpleasant period.So, having quality communion with nature during that time before my period has become a tradition every month in my life, and my relationship to my womanhood and nature has deepened significantly. Alisa taught me how to more fully nurture myself, and it impacts every area of my life. My life is richer, healthier and more beautiful because of it, and I feel profound gratitude. My hope is that every woman has access to the incredibly valuable wisdom and guidance of FLO Living.
I’ve suffered from extremely irregular, heavy and painful periods since I was 17 years old. I always knew something was wrong – despite what my GYN told me – but I could not seem to get her to treat the cause of my irregular periods. I remember asking her “is this going to affect my fertility?” and she replied, “Well, if you don’t ovulate, you can’t get pregnant”. I wanted to treat the problem but when she learned I was not trying to have children at that time, all she wanted to do was push the pill on me again. Feeling like I had no recourse, I relented and went back on the pill again. Several years later, I got married and it came time for us to think about starting a family. After several months of being off of the pill and not yet ovulating, I went back to the GYN. I then had an ultrasound which confirmed that I had PCOS, although by this time I had done my own research and already realized I had it. Theemotional roller coaster was horrendous. I was on medication, I had injections, I was monitored daily via ultrasound, I lost my first pregnancy, and finally after 2 ½ years I was pregnant with my son. While staying home with him, I noticed the PCOS symptoms were coming back. The weight gain was stubborn and once again, I was depressed. I knew about FLO Living from a friend of mine and lurked on the site for several months until I decided I would sign up for a free tele-class that Alisa was giving. I really didn’t know what to expect. I was so tired of exercising to the point of physical exhaustion without seeing results, I knew I wanted to have another child, and so I figured if I started working on this now, maybe I could cut out a lot of the pain I suffered the first time around. When I talked with Alisa, she was talking to me about abundance, and femininity, my adrenal glands and my liver…(I was thinking to myself, this woman is crazy, I want to talk about my PCOS and she’s talking to me about my childhood and stuff that has nothing to do with my ovaries!) I told her “this all sounded great but I don’t know if I have the will power to follow through with a life change as what you’re describing” Said to me “you don’t need will power”. I thought she was nuts. But something clicked because I decided to sign up for a program. For the first few weeks in the program, I remained skeptical. Alisa told us about the “Trinity Meal” and how this would help stabilize my blood sugar. I felt the difference right away. Early into the program, I recall feeling hungry but not feeling like I was going to pass out from hypoglycemia The big change for me happened during the Spring Cleanse. I started experiencing intense levels of anger. It turned out, I had unresolved emotions related a violent act I suffered when I was 17 (also the age when my periods stopped). At this point, I realized PCOS was not just about food and my pancreas, there was a lot of emotional work I needed to do. I needed to allow myself to enjoy life and do things that were good for me. I needed to learn to speak up for myself and finally be the adult woman I wanted to be. Four months after completing the program, I got a period! It has been regular since then. Six months after completing the program, my skin was clear, and my blood work was normal and my ovaries were back down to normal size. My current GYN was amazed! She noticed the difference as soon as she came into the examining room. By the time my son was about a year old, we started thinking of giving him a sibling. We just assumed we would have to go through infertility treatment again. I just didn’t think changing my food habits could increase my ability to conceive. We were told we had to try to 6 months and then seek infertility treatment. Two months after trying to conceive, we conceived our second son. The pregnancy was extremely easy and uneventful. While having a routine ultrasound, we learned all of my ovarian cysts were gone. I remember the tech saying to me “I am looking at your ovary now”. I recall being confused because I could not see them. You see I used to define my ovaries by the cysts on them. I could not find the cysts and I kept asking, “Where is my ovary?” And my husband exclaimed, “The cysts are gone!” I didn’t suffer from post-partum depression as I did with my first son, and breast-feeding was possible. Two years later, I am still eating whole grains and greens. I focus on living abundantly and I am still working on speaking up for myself. I signed up with FLO Living expecting them to tell me how to eat; instead, I learned how to live a fulfilling and healthy life. Thanks for reading!
When my husband and I decided that we were ready to have a baby, I left my ob-gyn office feeling defeated. He told me that because of my irregular cycles I’d need fertility medications in order to conceive. But having gone through the WomanCode System, I knew deep down that wasn’t the case and I knew my body was ovulating. My husband and I decided to try to get pregnant naturally before considering medical intervention. We had sex a few times, and seven weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I truly believe that my baby was possible because of how well I came to know my own body through the WomanCode System.
After 20 years of being on the pill and 10 years of being on metformin, I got off of both medications at 38 years old when I started the WomanCode System. 2 months into the program, I already had had 2 natural periods and dropped 13 lbs eating the wholesome foods recommended. My hair was no longer falling out. As an unexpected added bonus, my ulcerative colitis was gone. And I had orgasms again (woohoo!!). Best of all, after just 6 months on the program, and a total weight loss of 25 lbs, I got pregnant naturally, effortlessly and easily when my husband I decided we wanted to have a baby.
When I came to FLO Living in late 2005 struggling withPCOS, I hadn’t had a full period in at least 6 months, I was miserably working 12 hours a day as an attorney, and I had been unintentionally celibatefor the better part of a year. Late one evening, still at the office, I spoke to Alisa Vitti about my situation. I was highly resistant to working with her, but she suggested that I used a technique that I still use today. She asked me to pretend that I had made the decision not to have sessions, and see how that felt in my body. I checked in with myself and my body felt tight and shut down, in other words, “normal”. Then I pretended that I had signed up for sessions. At that moment, my body felt shaky, but alive. I started to cry, which is something I hadn’t done for months. I signed up for a 6 month program that night. I can attest to tangible results. In working with Alisa, my cycle normalized to a great extent and I began getting full periods more often. I spent less time at the office and more time having fun, including dating. I also learned how to better feed my body and feel good in my body. But working with LSW meant more to me than just tangible results. The women at LSW brought me to my own internal labyrinth. At FLO Living, I began the journey toward healing my relationship with my femininity and my feminine energy. I started to incorporate and appreciate those parts of me that I had denigrated in the past. And LSW gave me a community of women who supported me in my healing journey. Now I work only part time as an attorney and I’m spending the rest of my time doing things that I really love, like working with plus-sized women who want to feel great without dieting (Body Love Wellness), writing, performing improv, and spending time with my boyfriend and friends. I can’t imagine this journey without the support of FLO Living.
I originally came to Alisa for the specific purpose of doing something to restore my libido, which had “gone missing” with the onset of menopause. I had no idea that it would turn out to be such a life-changing experience. Throughout the 3 months I’ve worked with Alisa, I’ve redefined my concept of sexuality, and I’ve fallen in love with a new way of being that has allowed me to live and love more fully every day. I’ve refocused my personal goals and redefined for myself what “life success” really means to me. Alisa is an amazingly wise, caring, insightful, and intuitive woman. Her ability to “get me” really made a huge difference in my ability to change. The program more than exceeded my expectations…it made me a new woman!
