A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER
Can I get very personal and transparent with you for a minute?
In 2004, I lost my mom to breast cancer. She was the young age of 41. She went through 3 rounds of chemo and radiation before giving up on her life. I watched her pick out her casket, plan her funeral and held her hand as she took her last breaths. That moment alone and the helplessness I felt surrounding her illness has haunted me my entire adult life.
At the age of 35, I went on a quest to find out how I could prevent myself from having the same fate. After studying holistic nutrition and hormones, I found my answer. Estrogen balance.
Exposure to hormone disrupters found in red meats and dairy, toxins in our beauty, hair and household products, hormonal birth control, plastics and other environmental factors are throwing our hormones out of wack. These xenoestrogens are causing an increase in excess estrogen in our body which puts us at high risk of developing conditions such as fibroids and breast cancer every single day.
Symptoms of estrogen dominance include heavy periods, cramping, bloating, mood swings, breast tenderness, headaches, brain fog, weight gain and low libido.
The purpose of the plant based hero ingredients in our product, DIM + Indole 3 Carbinol is to help metabolize and detox the excess estrogen we have floating in our system for improved hormonal balance, while the supporting squad of vitamins and minerals help reduce inflammation, and address common micronutrient deficiencies to ensure optimal improvements in your overall health.
As your hormone health improves, you’ll start to notice less cramping, little to no PMS symptoms, more energy, better moods and a drastic improvement in how you feel overall. You may also notice a reduction of symptoms if you have been diagnosed with fibroids, PCOS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts or other conditions that are estrogen-induced.
My Happy Flo is helping women in ways that I wish I could have helped my mom if I knew how these factors, as well as lifestyle and nutrition played a role in her cancer diagnosis. I launched this brand on my 41st birthday in honor of my mom as well as a number of friends who had to turn to surgeries and hysterectomies because they weren’t given any other option. And I couldn't feel any more purposed. I know I am making my mom proud while ensuring that others don't have to go through what she went through.
In September 2023, I surpassed the lives of both of my parents. I have no living grandparents. I also have not been diagnosed with any of the long list of life-threatening illnesses that run in my family. What I know for sure is that by educating ourselves and turning to holistic measures to optimize our health, we can break generational health curses that run in our family history. I want this for all of us!
I am so grateful for the love and support you’ve shown us through tweets, Instagram posts, sharing us with your group chats and Facebook groups. Your continued support is helping us shift the narrative around periods, miseducation around hormonal contraceptives, and knowledge around natural cycles, hormone health and our reproductive system so that women everywhere can begin to have a more empowered relationship with their bodies.
When a woman heals herself, she heals her daughters, her granddaughters, the women around her and the world!
Take Their Lives Back
I used to bleed so heavy during my period that I'd go through an ultra tampon and nighttime pad within 45 minutes. I tried 2 different birth controls, an in-office procedure and the doctors even put me on a Lupron shot that was supposed to send my body into menopause. Unfortunately, my heavy periods continued to the point where I ended up in the ER, needing a blood transfusion. I began taking My Happy Flo and my periods are now a complete 180 from what I was used to. I've had absolutely no pain, no mood swings, no bloating AND my hormonal acne is gone. So happy I found My Happy Flo and I hope other women are able to find the relief that I did!
Seven days before starting my period, I used to have horrific cramps that woke me nightly as well as frequently bouts of hormonal acne. I went to the gynecologist for help, but was told my only option would be to try birth control. Luckily I ran across this product in 2021. Cramping is minimal, acne gone, and I no longer feel miserable for half the month. Thank you My Happy Flo for getting my life back to a much happier place!
Since day 1, my period has been super heavy and painful. I've dealt with back pain, headaches, PMS, mood swings, and cramps that would cause vomiting. I started layering excedrin 3 days before my period and 3 days during. I can only imagine what that did to the PH balance of my stomach. After just 2 months of taking My Happy Flo, my cycle has completely changed. No cramps, little to no bloating, no back pain, no mood swings, no breakouts or headaches. My flow is lighter and I've been able to live my life! Can't thank My Happy Flo enough!
Well all deserve better periods. Period.
