Every so often we like to pull stories directly from our online community to share with you the amazing transformations that are happening here at FLO, and to inspire you to see yourself in someone else’s success.
Today, we hope you enjoy Paula’s awakening and get inspired to know that you can heal your body and hormonal imbalances!
After watching the first video in this module I was soooo moved! I’ve finally understood what’s been happening in my body for the last 5 years: the panic attacks after major exercise, the constant fear and anxiety, the “I’m not a morning person” belief that turned into “I’m an owl” belief, the weight gain, the facial and body hair, the sudden cellulite, the painful periods, the grumpiness, the radical feelings, the constant anger. And then the feeling of unworthiness and the lack of confidence that came as a result of this long-lasting state of mind and adrenal fatigue.
I cannot count the numerous endocrine doctors I visited, the gynecologists, the dermatologists, the homeopaths, the naturopaths. It’s been there all the time. I remember researching about the adrenal glands, and the hypothalamus, and the pituitary gland. I was young and all my theories faded in front of the doctors. I remember having an ultrasound scan of my adrenals done by some doctor, hormonal blood tests, taking a medicine called Aldactone that my body refused after a month, taking the pill in order to get the testosterone under control even if I did not want to take it (and obviously forgetting about taking it so often!).
I remember being told it was nothing or being sent to the shrink, skepticism everywhere and being treated like a little girl who has thrown a tantrum. I remember reading Christiane Northrup’s book Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, and as amazing as it was, I still felt lost and didn’t know where to begin. No one could connect the dots except me, but I guess I wasn’t prepared to listen to my body until I discovered Alisa Vitti and FLO living.
After beginning the FLO program, I’m not even angry at the doctors or at myself anymore because I’m so happy that it finally makes sense! The answer was there all the time waiting for me to just see it. And that is really what I’ve been looking for all these years, not just healing, but understanding.
I feel so relieved to know I’m not crazy and I don’t need a shrink! Now, I understand my story and I understand this can be healed. I’m crying right now, I’m sooo fantastically happy and proud of myself.
I’m so looking forward to the future! I feel like I can do anything, be an enhanced version of myself again.
I can’t stress it enough THANK YOU Flo living team, thank you Alisa Vitti for sharing your story, inspiring us and sharing your knowledge, thanks for the online support I’m getting. This was my best decision ever.
