Hi, I'm Tara Thorne.

Your Functional Health Practitioner and Women’s Health Expert.

I’m a mum of two little ones, a prior health writer for international publications, the host of The Hormone Balance Solution podcast, and the founder of the successful women’s hormone health restoring program: The Hormone Balance Solution, which has helped hundreds of women world-wide regain their health and happiness.

My journey to healthful living started in 2008 after I suffered severe anxiety attacks.

Prior to this, I had my fair share of hormone imbalance symptoms like raging PMS, premenstrual migraines, sore boobs, terrible acne, and water retention, (I now know these were all “red flags” that I wish I had paid attention to).

Then, after my babies were born, I suffered with postpartum thyroiditis and anxiety, which I now know could have been avoided.

I also went on to develop adrenal fatigue. No big surprise considering I was working for myself, finishing up school, working on building up my new business, all whilst being a mummy to a 3 year old and a not-even-one-year-old! I now know the immense power in slowing down and putting my health first. 

I’ve been on antidepressants temporarily, (allopathic docs’ favourite catch-all “solution”) but I was able to go off these meds within a couple of months as I started to learn about the power of functional medicine.

I started to learn how I could look after my body in a safe, natural, and effective way that produced sustainable results. And in turn, I became symptom-free, calm, happy, and now, in my 40’s I feel better than I did in my 20’s.

Today, this is what I spend my time educating women about so they too can get back to the woman they once were and break free from their debilitating symptoms.

This is my mission and passion in life: optimizing women’s health and hormonal balance.

With the many years of study and clinical experience I have, and my deep passion for helping women just like you, I couldn’t be more excited to help expertly guide, support and cheer you on in your health journey.
