Recently I wrote a blog post about how I healed my skin after coming off the pill. The process of coming off the pill was so challenging and so stressful, you are probably wondering why I put myself through that? There are many reasons why and I want to share those reasons with you in this blog post. I also want to tell you about what alternatives there are and what is working for me.

So how did I end up going down the path of first questioning the pill and then decided to get off it completely. 4 years ago I started a journey towards a more holistic, conscious and healthy lifestyle. I started focusing on eating whole plant-based food, exercising, meditating and in general reconnecting with my natural self. This sort of 'awakening' has honestly changed my life in so many ways. Im happier, I'm more successful, I feel so much healthier, Im filled with love most days.

About 18 months ago I found myself in a conundrum that a lot of girls also find themselves in. While everyday I was doing all the right things like eating healthy, exercising and practising mindfulness I was also taking a synthetic pill that went against everything I was trying to achieve.

How could I continue living such a natural lifestyle while taking a pill that is full of synthetic hormones and is everything but natural? And whats more, I asked myself 'how unfair and evil is it that we females are told to get on the pill at a young age. And then when we want to get off because we are wise enough to make informed decisions, we cant because the effects of coming off are so bad that most of us would prefer to just put up with it'. I was committed to breaking free of this cycle and I really want to help you if you're ready for it.
