• From me to all of you: Have A Merry (stress-free) Christmas!

    The holidays are here, and the stress surrounding it is probably visiting as well! Stress is one of my biggest triggers for a massive flare-up. Many things play a part in my flare-ups, and sometimes it’s hard to tell which one is which – but stress is definitely one! Stress from going everywhere – being on time, spending time with family (God we love em’, but if you’re a lone wolf, introvert, or just simply need your alone-time it can be a freaking nightmare), getting in the car too quickly (whoops! A tear!), fighting with people in the grocery store – you get the picture. Stress we put on ourselves…

  • Chronic pain syndrome without an identifiable cause

    For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram might not know that I also suffer from Vulvodynia, same as many of you who are in this space. Vulvodynia is known as a chronic pain syndrome that affects the vulvar area and occurs without an identifiable cause. The symptoms can be burning, stinging, irritation or sharp pain around on the vulva as well as at the entrance of the vagina. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. It is often too painful to have sex, use tampons or even be lightly touched. My first time having sex it was like hitting a f*cking wall. Seriously. It’s kind of funny…

  • Cashew and pumpkin seed bar

    I am not a cook, and I’m definitely not a baker – but sometimes you just happen to make something delicious and you just want to share it with everyone! The other week I thought I’d make some “healthy” bars to help me through long days at work, and also something that is beneficially for my body. This bar contains heaps of healthy fats which are good for the skin, hormones and for the brain! Makes about 10 bars: Ingredients: 2 cups cashews 2 cups oats 1 cup pumpkin seeds 15 soaked pitted dates 2 tbsp raw cacao 2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil Maybe a little bit of water…

  • Why I use Essential Oils in my everyday life

    My man, Chris, calls me a quack. And I am. I’ve always been drawn to “alternative things”, things that are different and might not be considered “normal”. Whatever that means, if someone finds out – please do tell me! Cause I am probably anything but. Seeing that I have a degree in nutrition, where we were taught evidence based practice, makes it Very hard to be a quack! Crystals, The Universe, Oracle cards. You name it, I probably believe in it wholeheartedly! So when it comes to essential oils people often question it, because it’s looked upon as “alternative”, right? It’s alternative medicine, but in a way not.. A pubmed…

  • What works for your Lichen Sclerosus, by You – Part 2.

    Menstrual products – we are all different, Lichen Sclerosus or not. And we all use different menstrual products.However, for us with Lichen Sclerosus, candida overgrowth, or anything else that may be bothering our lovely ladyhood – we need to find something doesn’t make the pain or itch worse.We have either a preference for tampons or pads – and both can agitate our condition.But lately there has been a lot of talk about other menstrual products – such as pads made out of cotton, or menstrual cups. And for some of us this is tremendously helpful. I mean, shoving up a cup in your vagina might not be the most optimal…

  • Lichen Sclerosus & research

    It is unclear how many people suffer from Lichen Sclerosus, but the more we connect, the more we know that we are definitely not alone. One study released on July 8th. 2019, even stated that the female to male ratio is now 6:1, which previously has been known to be 4:1. Even thought there is close to no research regarding LS and nutrition, there have been several studies recently looking into Lichen Sclerosus – how it works, why it happens, and what are the treatment options. Right now our beloved steroid cream is leading the way in ways to treat LS, but what does it do in the long run?…

  • Pelvic pain & oxalates

    When I went to my exercise physiologist for pelvic pain she lent me this book written about pelvic pain, can’t remember what is was called though? So if someone out there reads these types of books, please send me a DM with the titles. Because it was SO good and informative – and I wish they would have given this to me when I was twenty, because o’boy would that have helped me! Anyway, in this book I read about oxalates for the first time – and that they May have an impact on pelvic pain. Oxalates are present in the body, but they are also found in food such…
