Many people start to feel better within the first few weeks (sometimes even days!) of making lifestyle and dietary changes. You may notice a significant improvement in your symptoms, such as stabilized moods, a regular cycle, increased energy, and almost pain-free periods, in the first three to six months after working with your doctors and implementing the suggested changes. However, it’s important to remember that everyone is unique, and each individual’s journey will be different.
Keep in mind that when you see results depends on your specific symptoms and hormonal imbalances, and how you implement (and stick to!) the suggestions and changes that are recommended. It’s also important to acknowledge that you won’t just wake up and “see results” one day — as you work through these guides, your body will be constantly working toward balance both inside and out.
For some symptoms, like mood swings related to blood sugar imbalances, you may notice a big difference soon after making changes to how you eat. The same goes for sleep; by prioritizing your sleep, you are likely to see noticeable changes in your sleep quality fairly quickly. On the other hand, with symptoms like acne, excess hair growth, and painful periods, you may take more time to notice a change because there are underlying hormonal imbalances at play.
We recommend committing to implementing the information and making changes from these guides over a period of about six months. This includes very important pieces of your healing journey like tracking your cycle, finding a medical doctor to work with, getting testing done, and crafting a personalized supplement plan, as well as actually making changes.
This means actually taking your supplements regularly and making the diet and lifestyle changes that you’ve identified as important for you. All of this takes time, both to implement the changes and for your body to adjust. During these first six months, you will likely experience many positive changes in several of the symptoms you are struggling with, such as blood sugar imbalances, low energy, and digestive issues.
Within three to six months after this initial six-month period, you can generally expect to see changes related to rebalancing hormones, such as having a regular cycle and finally experiencing pain-free periods.
Remember: Completing the guides is the first step, but actually implementing the suggestions is where the real work (and magic!) happens.
