A comprehensive, plant-based lifestyle program to help women balance their hormones, increase energy, and reduce PMS symptoms.

After struggling for years with acne, oily skin and hair, debilitating cramps, mood swings, brain fog, intense cravings, insomnia, bloating, and weight gain before her period, author and certified hormone specialist Shannon Leparski developed the Happy Hormone Method through extensive research. Her life changed for the better and Shannon made it her mission to combat hormone imbalance and promote women's health.

TheHappy Hormone Guide includes comprehensive, phase-specific (menstrual, follicular, ovulatory, and luteal) guidance including:

Changes in fertility, libido, and basal body temperature
Beneficial foods, micronutrients, and supplements
Phase-specific recipes to support hormone balance (can also reduce symptoms associated with endometriosis)
Common changes to mood and energy levels
Exercise tips suitable to different times of the month
Facial recipes, hair masks, and essential oil blends

Modern culture expects women to keep up with the same demanding daily routine, but women's cycles are anything but consistent. The Happy Hormone Guide explores the ebbs and flows of a woman's monthly cycle and provides a holistic view of the female hormone and endocrine system so that you can take control of your cycle and improve your quality of life.
