Mandy, the philosophy of Reveal Functional Nutrition emphasizes a whole-person approach to uncovering the root causes of health issues. Can you share some success stories or transformative moments where this approach has significantly impacted the lives of your clients?

Many of the clients that come to us have literally tried it all.

They’ve often been to multiple doctors, been in therapy for years, have tried dozens of supplements and diets, and have even...

Connecting the Dots: Histamine, PMDD, and Finding Lasting Relief through Functional Nutrition

If you’ve been exploring PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) for a while, you’ve probably seen conversations about histamine intolerance being a potential root cause of PMDD or PME (Premenstrual Exacerbation). Understanding the connection between histamine and PMDD can help you make sense of the core issues driving your symptoms. From there, you can arrive at a targeted plan for relief. 

Of course, when you first learn about this connection, it can seem daunting. And because PMDD is such a complex condition, it’s natural to assume it requires a complex solution.

Yet I know firsthand it’s possible to get lasting relief from PMDD. In my case, I went from debilitating symptoms to welcoming my cycle each month.

But I didn’t find relief through one-size-fits-all solutions or super restrictive diets. Using a comprehensive functional medicine approach, I got clear on the unique root causes of my symptoms and restored balance in my body.

Celebrating 3 Years Creating Waves in the PMDD Community

Opening the Doors to a Global Coaching Practice for Mental and Menstrual Health

 

In August, our team celebrated 3 years since opening our doors.

 

We set out with a lofty mission:

To help thousands of menstruators free themselves from the debilitating mood and menstrual symptoms so that that they can live out their purpose.

 

Correction: We actually didn't pause to celebrate back in August. We kept on forging ahead... to keep evolving, researching, and refining our methods to continue helping more people... better and faster.  So now, in the New Year, we're taking a moment to pause, reflect, and celebrate how far we've come and where we're going next.

 

How the PMDD Revealed Program Came to Be

3 years ago, I had this crazy idea that I could help people suffering from debilitating mood and menstrual symptoms with a functional medicine and nutrition approach.

At the time, there were very few people in the world doing this. I honestly had the thought, "Maybe...

PMDD & HSP: Is there a connection between Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder and Being a Highly Sensitive Person?

Do you ever feel too sensitive for the world?

Yep, me too. Let’s talk about it.

I have a history of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and work with people with PMDD every day, all day. I observe time and time again that folks with PMDD are often highly sensitive and highly empathetic. Sometimes they’re also very intuitive and creative.

Some identify as HSPs (highly sensitive person), neurodivergent, or have a diagnosis of ADHD or ASD.

And it’s not just observation on my part. There’s been a lot of buzz on the topic of PMDD, autism, neurodivergence, ADHD, and sensory processing. In my small corner of the Internet, it feels like everyone is talking about this article, which states that PMDD disproportionately affects people with ADHD and autism, at a rate of 46% and 92% respectively. 

The International Association of Premenstrual Disorders put out this statement commenting on the article as well. You can read it here. The consensus? As...
