I’m one of those women who has tried every supplement under the sun in the hope that it would help with my many ailments. And I’m also one of those people who has been routinely disappointed with the results.
The problem is, there are literally thousands of options out there, and all of them claim to be miracle cures for so many illnesses.
I have chronic migraines, chronic fatigue, and endometriosis. I know that there aren’t any cures out there for these illnesses (believe me, I’ve looked), but I so wanted to believe that there was something that could help with the myriad of symptoms.
The problem is, when you suffer from issues commonly seen as ‘women’s problems’, people are quick to tell you it’s ‘just’ hormonal; they tell you to eat more healthily and some even imply that it’s your own fault because, let’s face it, you’re a woman.
So, my penance for being born female was pain, brain fog, fatigue, pain, irritability, mood swings, poor sleep, and pain. As soon as I hit 35, weight started to pile on, and I lost all interest in bedroom activity (wouldn’t you?)
The Golden Pill
When a friend suggested I try Elle Sera, I approached it with my usual mix of scepticism and hope. I wanted it to help, but I didn’t think it would. When I started to read about it, I added ‘vaguely offended’ to my list of emotions. It looked to me like this was a supplement for menopausal women, and much as I felt every second of my 37 years, I didn’t feel that I was there just yet.
The more I looked into it though, the more I realised that this little golden pill seemed to have the power to address each and every debilitating symptom that I was experiencing. It was for ALL women.
Now, I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I’ll tell you now that I will love that friend forever.
Let me tell you why…
Ok, I’m going to get this one out of the way first; it’s the thing that has attracted a lot of press coverage for Elle Sera, and in all honesty it was the first thing I noticed, just a couple of weeks into taking them. I went from having zero interest in bedtime acrobatics to… well, I won’t go into detail. Let’s just say my activity levels increased massively in those first few weeks.
It was a real and tangible change, and quite unexpected. It was the first sign that this little gold pill wasn’t just another mass produced placebo and I was excited…
Maybe it was all the extra exercise, but I started to notice that I was losing weight. I had been trying so hard for years, but it never seemed to work. Now, my healthy eating was actually having an impact.
I started to look and feel healthier, and my confidence increased.
This was the benefit that truly made me thankful. I started to feel more energised. The sluggishness and tiredness dissipated, and I felt 10 years younger. This was what I had been looking for, for so long! I had the energy to go out for walks with my family, and catch up with friends. This was worth its weight in gold to me.
Have you ever been angry, sad, and happy all at the same time? Like, you don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or commit homicide? And, even though you know it’s hormonal, woe betide the person who points this out.
Those of us who are slaves to our hormones know that feeling all too well. After a couple of months on Elle Sera, I noticed that my moods had evened out. I was less volatile, less prone to severe mood swings. I was calmer and happier.
I’m not going to tell you the pain is gone. That would have been a miracle on a par with walking on water. BUT I noticed the frequency and severity of my headaches was reduced. My joint pain was more bearable, and my period pains were no longer debilitating. It felt like someone had given me a new lease of life.
I’m writing all of this because I want to share the joy. I want every woman who has ever had their health problems written off as ‘hormonal’ to try Elle Sera for themselves, and see if it can help them the way it helped me.
Yes, it’s wonderful for women at a later stage in their lives who are going through the challenges of menopause and perimenopause, but it can also be transformative for all women.
If you feel like you have tried everything and can’t find anything that really works, Elle Sera may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
