Thinking about getting off the pill but worried about acne, hair loss, weight gain, and other side effects? Been there done that. Let me guide you through it, you don't have to do it alone.
You’re a go-getter who’s working on being your best self. You’ve got a yoga class package you’re trying to use up before it expires, an on again off again relationship with juicing, a never-ending battle for glowing skin, your hair keeps falling out (but you're hoping that you're just being paranoid and that's really a normal amount swirling down the shower drain), and you have some digestive issues that you can't quite figure out.
Ever wonder if some of these symptoms could be caused by your birth control? Do you want to make changes but just aren't sure about the crucial next steps to take?
Oh, you’re in just the right spot, friend!
That’s where I come in.
I’m Sarah Crooks, and I work with motivated yet frustrated women who are ready to detox and heal their bodies from the side effects of birth control.
Want to transition off hormonal birth control with fewer side effects in a shorter amount of time and feel great in your body again?!
As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) Practitioner and Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Counselor, I help you address the root cause(s) of your health issues and get your mind and body back to a place where you can thrive and live symptom free.
I've been through it myself, and I can speak from experience when I say I'm happier and healthier because of it, and you can too!
A little about me, I was on the pill for 18 years before I had to deal with gnarly side effects and went off it. I was the lead graphic designer for a popular swimwear company and changed careers to help other women figure out how to be their happiest and healthiest. I eat a plant-based diet but believe everyone's body has unique needs. I’m a silversmith and painter with a BFA in Fine Arts. I ride motorcycles (I have a Moto Guzzi V7 Stone for when I want to cruise and a KTM SuperDuke for when I want to rip it up). And my boyfriend and I have a Boxer named Stella aka Stinky and a black cat named Fatty.
Wanna work with me?
"After I had my second child I signed up for a 12-week session with Sarah in hopes of quickly fitting back into my skinny/pre-prego clothes. It was awesome!! She talked to me and coached me every week and helped me implement manageable and achievable lifestyle changes one tiny (non-daunting) step at a time. Each week we talked about successes/challenges of executing those changes, and if things didn't work then she had great recommendations on how to modify that to fit my busy, "working-mom-of-two-toddlers" lifestyle. A year later, I find that I'm still adhering to these changes - back in my skinny clothes, living a healthier, less-toxic lifestyle, and happier because of it. She is basically a health coach, wellness guru and therapist all rolled up in one. She understands that everyone has vices, so she teaches you the importance of balance - that is probably one of the things I liked most about her. She helped me to realize it wasn't about giving stuff up (there's no way I can give up my wine with the aforementioned toddlers) but adding in healthier habits to create a better life for yourself!"
