Our Founder, Nikki Gonda.
Hey beautiful people!
I’m Nikki, Founder of My Moonbox. Welcome to our community!
You and I probably have a similar story, which is why you’re here.
I struggled for years during my teens and early twenties from cramps to uncontrollable mood swings, heavy periods, acne, anxiety, no libido, sore breasts…you name it – I experienced it.
And like most teenagers I was presented with the solution of the pill – so I took it, no questions asked. Little did I know that the pill was only a temporary fix masking the underlying hormonal balance, whilst causing further chaos.
So whilst I waved goodbye to the cramps and acne, I also welcomed an array of other symptoms: anxiety, waves of depression, panic attacks, weight gain, fatigue, chronic thrush, UTI’s and IBS.
For 6 years I was completely unaware of the connection between the cloud of ill-health hanging over my head and the pill – until I finally stopped taking it. That was the beginning of even further health challenges from hypothyroidism, to leaky gut, acne worse than before and a period that went MIA for 2 years!
I spent thousands of dollars on tests and supplements that only lead me to the same solution every time: hormonal birth control. Intuitively I knew there had to be something else I could do. There had to be a more natural lasting solution.
This awareness is what pushed me into my self-healing journey. I was done being unhappy and unwell & I knew something really needed to shift. I re-evaluated my life and started tapping into my passion for natural health which found me in a 4 year degree doing Nutritional Health Science and becoming a total hormone nerd and period health advocate.
It took me a few years to fully take charge of my health, learn how to truly understand and support my body through food and lifestyle whilst re-discovering my period. And today, after all those years, I can confidently say that menstrual suffering is not my fate.
And guess what? It’s not yours either.
You don’t need to settle for cramps and mood swings every month. You don’t need to accept breakouts, breast tenderness, heavy periods, bloating or any symptom as an unavoidable part of your cycle! You don’t need to settle for anything less than perfect hormonal health!
It is our responsibility to take charge of our health and learn about our bodies in a more intimate way so that we can reduce long term dependence on conventional medications such as hormonal birth control (HBC). Of course in some cases medical intervention is absolutely necessary, however we are also doing ourselves a disservice when common go-to solutions disconnect us from our bodies and prevent us from experiencing the benefits that can come with a naturally healthy cycle: optimal energy, fertility, libido, metabolism, stamina, happiness and vitality!
Your period symptoms are not “normal”.
Period pain, mood swings, acne, low libido, hair loss, tender breasts, fatigue, low energy…
These monthly symptoms are not a necessary or “normal” or inevitable part of your cycle.
Instead they are your body’s way of communicating an underlying hormone imbalance that needs to be addressed.
Hormones shouldn’t be confusing or complicated.
You shouldn’t have to go to university for 4 years to get a degree on your body & hormones.
At My Moonbox we’ve done the work for you, created the products your hormones need and compiled all of the essential cycle knowledge into our e-books & courses so that you’re provided with everything we all should have been taught since the very beginning!
You don’t have to feel alone, overwhelmed or unheard on this journey.
Sick of leaving the doctors office feeling unheard? Or have your test results come back normal even though you know something isn’t right…Maybe the doctor dismisses your concerns as “normal”?
At My Moonbox we believe no woman should ever have to feel alone on their health journey which is why we have our online community where you can connect with 1000s of like minded women and our team of naturopaths! We are passionate about empowering you with the education & support that puts YOU in the driver’s seat. Because we have so much more control over our hormones than we are ever told.
It's about changing your period story.
Everybody’s periods are different. There’s no ‘one right way’ to period. At My Moonbox we’re not here to tell you what your journey should look like. We’re here to empower you with everything you need to discover a new relationship with your period & support your body back to balance so that you can become the happiest, healthiest & most confident version of yourself throughout your entire cycle.
