Optimize Your Energy, Hormones and Libido with Maraya Brown

Everywhere we turn it seems like another ambitious woman entrepreneur is feeling fatigued, burned out, and exhausted. Women in their late 30s and early 40s even!

I was one of those women who battled brain fog, extreme fatigue, loss of muscle strength, headaches, missed menstrual cycles, over sleeping, hair loss, and anxiety. At the age of 39 I found out my adrenals were shot which led to thyroid autoimmune and low testosterone.

Balancing our hormones leads to living a more vibrant life!

In this episode you’ll hear a candid conversation between myself and Maraya Brown, a Yale and Functional Medicine Trained Women’s Health Expert (CNM, MSN). Her work online brings her 22 years of experience supporting women together in one place to co-create deep transformation, hormonal health, consistent stamina, and passion.
