Fix your nutrition first
Time to take control of your hormonal health.
Correcting hormonal imbalance
We’re used to looking for a ‘quick fix’ to our problems – something we can take that makes us feel a bit better and allows us to go on with our lives as normal.
That can only ever be a temporary cure, though: a sticking-plaster solution when a holistic approach to what’s causing these symptoms could help fix them for good.
Many symptoms that we try to resolve with medication or surgery are caused by a hormonal imbalance that can be largely addressed with the right nutrition.
Awareness of the hormonal changes our bodies are going through, and the effect different foods have on these hormones, can be life changing.
Who are we?
Plena Health was founded by biochemical scientist, Yvonne Parker and nutritionist, Danielle McCarthy.
As well as being qualified professionals, we’re women whose expertise is informed by our own painful personal experience. Our advice is firmly grounded in science, as well as the evidence of our own bodies and those of millions of women around the world.
Modern medicine is amazing if you’re ill or want to avoid becoming seriously ill. Millions of people would not be alive if it weren’t for the vaccines, treatments and technology developed over the last century or so.
But periods, pregnancy and menopause aren’t illnesses. The majority of women will experience most, if not all of them, along with the hormonal changes that can give rise to symptoms like mood swings, weight gain, soreness, lethargy and ‘brain fog’.
We believe that, with the right nutrition, all women can put themselves on the ‘health track’, where feeling good is what we expect and see as the norm; and avoid the ‘disease track’, where we can bank on suffering with predictable regularity, and believe we have to put up with it.
Plena Health helps you understand how what you eat impacts on how you feel and how your hormones behave. We look at your symptoms and pinpoint the hormonal imbalances that are causing them. We offer full nutritional analysis, with bespoke testing where necessary, to create individual plans to rebalance and restore women to full health and vitality.
It’s a blueprint, not a prescription: we give you the facts and the information to help you make the right decisions for you.
