Alisa Vitti is a functional nutritionist, women’s hormone expert, best selling author and founder of floliving.com. Also known as the “hormone whisperer,” Alisa has opened up the conversation about menstruation while helping and inspiring women to tap into their inner wisdom and feel good all month long.
As a student at John Hopkins, Alisa Vitti was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS. When her physicians gave her only band-aid solutions to manage it, she realized that she needed a more organic solution. Determined to take matters into her own hands she turned to food and functional nutrition to get to the root of her issues. It worked, and on many levels. After healing herself of cystic acne, excess weight, infertility, and normalizing her period, Alisa made it her mission to help other women to do the same.
Alisa founded FLO Living in 2002. At that time, it was called Laughing Sage Wellness, and it was a brick and mortar women’s health center in New York City. Alisa’s classes and one-on-one coaching taught women how to achieve regular periods, how to heal from menstrual disorders such as PMS, PCOCS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and fibroids, and how to optimize fertility and heal symptoms of perimenopause or premature hormonal aging. Alisa created the WomanCode System to teach women how to balance their hormones with food and lifestyle changes.
Demand for the FLO protocol and classes grew so much that the center was constantly booked, and to meet the demand Alisa transformed her wellness practice into the first-ever online hormone health center to help women around the world. FLO Living has since helped thousands of women in more than 216 countries for over 14 years.
Of course, the doctor sent me to get tested and then calculated the dose (30mg for me). I was being examined by a specialist during all the time taking the drug. As for the many side effects that can be caused by the drug, I noticed only the dryness of the skin. But I think that this was due to the appointment of different vitamins that I could take in conjunction with Accutane. I was taking the drug for 4 months, from https://accisotret.com in accordance with the calculated dose for me. Overall, I want to say that I have never regretted that I decided to try Accutane to get rid of acne.
