Jess Hodge is a wife, mom of two with one on the way, and a recent graduate of the Nutritional Therapy Association program. After years of being on hormonal birth control, restricting her food intake, over exercising, and trying to control her body, she went off the pill when her and her husband were ready to grow their family… and her period never showed up.
Those next years were spent misdiagnosed with PCOS, jumping to medications to conceive, and fighting the ups and downs of infertility and with a very irregular cycle. Turns out the reason for her missing period wasn’t PCOS after all, it was actually Hypothalmic Amenorrhea (HA)!
Through her experience of diving in to heal her hormones and body, Jess is now a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) who feels passionate about helping women find food & freedom exercise so they too can recover and regulate their cycles, optimize their fertility, and conceive naturally.
