Jenna Longoria, “The Period Guru” (@theperiodguru), is a Board Certified Functional Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) passionate about women’s hormonal health. She is also an authorised Ashtanga yoga teacher.
Growing up, she struggled with weight gain, painful and irregular periods, PMS, digestive discomfort, and intense mood swings. At the time, she didn’t realise that all these symptoms were part of PCOS and Endometriosis . The only “solution” doctors gave her was to take the birth control pill. However, she wasn’t keen on the host of horrible side effects.
Jenna returned to school to study functional medicine, nutrition, and women’s health. She ran the right labs, changed her diet and lifestyle to support her body and started taking targeted supplements. Today, she’s 20 pounds lighter, has regular periods, and her mood swings and sugar cravings no longer get the best of her. Her mission is to empower all women with the knowledge to be their best health advocates. In addition, to achieve pain-free periods, abundant energy, healthy digestion, and optimum fertility.
