BLOG & RESOURCES
I regularly update this list with my favorite self-care practices, supplements, and devices that have been recommended in your treatment plan.
The Tempdrop is by far the easiest and most comfortable device I've used to track basal body temperature daily. I also love that it seamlessly integrates with the Read Your Body app where I can utilize the robust set of free charting features that would otherwise cost a premium.

TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) devices are an effective non-pharmacological option for pain management. How do they work? Check out this video to see the science behind how the Livia and other TENS devices work to manage pain.
TENS units are class 2a medical devices that may be covered by your insurance. Medical devices can fall under different umbrellas in health insurance including (but not limited to): Health Aids and Appliances, Ancillary or Extras cover. Before placing an order, we suggest contacting your insurer and confirm your level of cover and how much you can claim.
The ones I recommend most to patients:
Perfect Daily Smoothie
This is my favorite brand of *CLEAN* ingredients for my daily AM smoothie. It is a great way to kick-off your morning with a nourishing, nutrient-rich breakfast that will jump-start your metabolism. I recommend it as part of an Adrenal Reset routine - great for those dealing with sleep, energy, mood or hormonal imbalances.
