Struggling to keep blood sugar in balance approaching perimenopause/menopause?


“I woke up seeing floaters.”

That's a nice way to describe leaking blood vessels caused by poor blood sugar control. Diabetic retinopathy was the diagnosis, and I was told if I didn't get it together...


I could go blind.

That warning and my fear of high blood sugar led me to very strict control. Well, too strict, 911 was called to my rescue too many times to count.

I had to find out what being in control of my blood sugar would look like without causing other stress in my life.

Is diabetes the one obstacle you can’t overcome by yourself, so you feel stuck? You want this time in your life, to be your time to shine?

Yep, I’ve been there. My name is Melissa and I decided after 20+ years of 9-5 corporate stress to leave and study a holistic approach to better manage my diabetes, and to coach others.

"I signed up for the Gain Food Freedom Course because I realized that to change my health, I needed to take an "action step". I had no idea that it would teach me a framework on which I could build lifetime changes. 


After sitting with Melissa through the course I began understanding the 5 essential habits creating health.  Around these habits, I was able to build goals and strategies to reach those goals. By the end of the course, I truly was empowered with specific and measurable ways to begin changing my health forever.  And now I have a friend and coach who can direct me and hold me accountable"

Melissa is wonderful and so very helpful! I wanted to learn how to balance carbs with fat and protein and form a diet that was healthy for me and would give me sustainable energy and not spike my blood sugar. Melissa sat down with me and discussed my concerns and helped me develop such an eating plan! Im grateful to her and her advice has worked! She stays in touch with me and provides recipes and helpful advice through emails and her Facebook group. Book a session with her! Shes fabulous!
