Five years ago, the founder of Hormona lost her wellbeing and ultimately herself. She bounced from one doctor to the next, desperate for them to take her problems seriously.
No one she spoke to could see the link between her mental wellbeing and the symptoms her body was presenting and resorted to throwing anti-depressants at the problem or recommended to quit her job as surely this was the “real” cause of her stress.
After many years of research, appointments and travelling to see specialists abroad, she finally was diagnosed with an under-active thyroid and hormonal imbalance. All of these things could have been picked up if only someone had listened, done the right tests and connected the dots.
Throughout this journey to better her own health, the massive gap between the information, the access and the everyday patient became clear. She found a significant need for female health-focused solutions where women can understand their body and fluctuations better.
It also brought to light how much pressure women are facing daily – it isn’t just the social pressures, but our changing bodies and how that affects our fertility, hormones, mental health and yet so many of these topics we just don’t talk about.
Hormona is the answer to that need. We are a science-backed and data-driven company designed to give women better insights and understanding about their hormone health.
