Hola, I’m Andrea

Fruitfullynourishing was born out of my fierce desire to flourish during midlife 

and embrace this time as an amazing opportunity to up level and create extraordinary wellness and elegance.

A bit of my story

Raised in a broken, yet loving, home by a single mother had its challenges. Seeing her dependence on God, became foundational. Being confronted with the absence of a father later led to a relationship restored. 

“No matter what we face, the word of God is inspiring.” Andrea

Like yOU, i’VE BEEN ON THIS INCREDIBLE JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE’S UPS AND DOWNS.

My self-love and health journey began during a very chaotic moment in my life. I was a victim of narcissistic abuse, while working full-time, attending school and working as a part-time Realtor.  Also, I was raising my son, running a household, and overweight. 

I was battling with digestive issues, anemia, insulin resistance, heart palpitations and fibroids. Fibroids are a DEFINITE sign of a hormonal imbalance, specifically estrogen dominance.  I gained so much weight I could not get rid of no matter what I did. I was suffocating from guilt, shame, full of regret and remorse. I was making poor lifestyle choices.  Basically, I was a hot mess! 

My health didn’t become a priority until my mother  lost her battle to pancreatic cancer in 2013.  Losing a loved one to a health related illness and discovering that cancers in the family were related to hormones, was A WAKE UP CALL FOR ME.

I was concerned that my life would be heading in the same direction.  I looked at my lifestyle and realized I needed to make a change. 

I Found Balance…

In 2014, I ended my 9 year relationship and started focusing on reclaiming my health. Four years later is signed up for my first bikini competition. Due to a restrictive diet that lacked certain nutrients and drinking BCAA’s I discovered a lump in my left breast. I was worried that the lump was breast cancer. My mammogram results revealed that the lump was benign.

I changed my diet, did lymphatic massages, infrared saunas, daily movement, included supplements that help detox xenoestrogens and added more fiber.  After about a year or so, the lump was gone.

Now that I’m in peri-menopause my life has turned around yet again. Sudden weight gain, poor digestion, painful periods, sleep issues, heart palpitations, brain fog, dry mouth and anxiety left me questioning my value as a woman, and struggling to feel good about myself. My confidence was low, and in an effort to regain control over my body, I was making poor lifestyle choices. Basically, I was a hot mess! I was losing control of my body and the negative self-talk was really affecting my confidence.

I began praying to God for relief from my physical burdens, and he answered my prayers.  God gave me every bit of advice and wisdom I needed to heal my body. 

After receiving my certifications in Integrative Health and Holistic life coaching, I began implementing my new learnings into my daily life and renewed my mind.  The results were…astonishing, in the best possible way. 

My mood, energy and weight stabilized, my hair grew back thick and full, my skin literally started glowing and my sleep improved.

By eating the right foods, detoxing and taking supplements that help balance my hormones, I’m able to manage my symptoms. And…now I want to help you do the same.

I help midlife women heal instead of diet; and teach you how to eat for life so you can regain your energy and self-confidence to refocus on yourself and create a guilt-free lifestyle that fills you up daily. As coach, I’m passionate about helping you discover what serves, energizes and fuels you.

Are you ready to live your best midlife?

There are three important components to help you get there:

Reduce Insulin & Inflammation

One of the best ways to reduce inflammation and balance hormones is by eating a nutritious, whole-food-based, anti-inflammatory diet. Load up on fruits, veggies, protein, fiber & healthy fats.

Reduce Endocrine Disruptor Exposure

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are natural or human -made chemicals that may mimic, block, or interfere with the body’s hormones, which are part of the endocrine system. These chemicals are associated with a wide array of health issues.

Supplements

Hormone balance supplements work by providing your body with nutrients it needs to product hormones. They can also regulate hormone levels. This can help reduce the symptoms of hormone imbalances and restore balance to your system. I’m not against BHRT and recommend it when needed to help with dementia, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis-especially post-menopause.
