Story of the Month for January is this lovely girl – Stephanie Zoe. She found NaturalCycles through our Instagram profile and has been a dedicated user ever since. Read more about her below.
My name is Stephanie and I am 24 years old. I work as an in-house nutritionist and for a health company called ‘LIFE‘. I live with my partner and our two cats in the south of Stockholm. I am a down to earth girl who loves spending time taking long walks in the woods, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, as well as gardening and meditating. Alongside this, I run a health blog, stephaniezoe.com, where I like to share my ideas and discoveries about diet, health and wellbeing.
As a nutritionist, I live life with a holistic approach. I want to make sure that I restore my body and mind to it’s natural form by investing my time towards finding the healthiest, most natural essentials that are available to me. Our bodies are finely tuned, naturally balanced machines that are regularly disrupted by man-made, mass-produced additives that are often found in our diets. This is the same for synthetic hormones, which many women take on a daily basis to prevent pregnancy. Thanks to my growing interest in health and wellbeing, I found a better solution than the pill – the IUD.
I immediately thought the IUD was better and less harmful but I soon started to realise that it wasn’t because I started to experience super heavy periods and excruciating pain to go with it. I stuck to it for a bit and took high doses of zinc to balance out the propagated concentration of copper but decided that if it wan’t natural, it wan’t me.
I found NaturalCycles by coincidence when I was surfing around on Instagram. Skeptical, as I am, I thought it sounded too good to be true but nevertheless decided to look into it further.I read up on various forums and blogs about NaturalCycles and found strong recommendations and positive feedback. I therefore booked an appointment with the midwife to remove my spiral and my NaturalCycles thermometer soon followed in the post.
I now keep my thermometer on my nightstand and every morning before I get up, I take my temperature, tap it into the app and I’m ready for the day. NaturalCycles is easy-to-use and I love the nice messages I get when i’m doing a good job! I would, however, like to see more of these pop-up messages to remind me of my important cycle events such as: ‘when it’s time to take an ovulation test’, or ‘how many days there are before my next menstruation’.
I would recommend NaturalCycles to all women as it have allowed me to be myself again – completely natural, the way we are meant to be!
Big thanks to Stephanie for sharing her story with all of us!
