Hi! I'm Necole!
Thank you for your interest in My Happy Flo! Your journey to better periods begins here, and I’m here to assist you every step of the way!
Most of you may have followed my journey as a very successful celebrity blogger and media mogul, but similar to most women, I spent years overworking, skipping meals, and forgetting to prioritize self-care while hustling my way to success in an unhealthy way. And my periods were debilitating! I’m talking the glued to a heating pad, taking time off of work, and skipping out on vacations with friends kind of bad.
I didn’t know at the time that our menstrual cycle is a fifth vital sign and can be considered a monthly report card for our overall health. Similar to some of the symptoms my mom endured before being diagnosed with breast cancer, my period was showing me signs that I was not in good health. I was dehydrated, had gut imbalances, severe vitamin deficiencies and my hormones were out of whack. But I ignored all the signs because I grew up believing that periods were supposed to be painful.
The truth is: Periods are not supposed to be painful and cramping, mood swings, bloating, heavy bleeding and irregular periods are all signs of hormonal imbalance.
When I set out to learn more about healthy habits and nutrition, it was alarming to find out that 80% of women were living with hormonal imbalances that were manifesting into heavy, painful periods. When left unaddressed and undiagnosed, these imbalances increase their risk for more serious health complications such as fibroids, breast cancer, PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid disorders, and estrogen-induced cancers. Black women in particular are 2 to 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with fibroids and also face more severe menstrual symptoms that have a direct impact on their mental health, body image, relationships and job performance. With so many women who looked like me suffering in silence and living in shame, I knew I had to do something.
With the help of a holistic doctor, I was able to balance my hormones naturally through a vitamin regimen that provided period pain relief without the side effects of hormonal birth control, or pain meds, and I knew I had to help other women do the same. My goal with My Happy Flo was to create a holistic product that women could rely on to fill in their nutritional gaps, help boost their energy, moods and immunity, and restore hormonal balance for a healthier cycle.
