If you experience grogginess, sleep issues, mood swings, painful periods, or hair thinning... then you might be unbalanced. So many of us go through life not knowing that our hormones are unbalanced, and the mother-daughter team at Your Hormone Balance is on a mission to end that! Ryan Burch, Candace Burch, and Jess Suchan come by the studio to talk about the hidden symptoms of hormone imbalance that are so often ignored. They explain why saliva testing is so important, and why so many blood tests come back clear when there is actually an issue. They break down the 5 main hormones that we all need to be testing, and how you can do an audit of yourself to see if something feels off. They also talk about diet, bioidentical hormones, and holistic solutions to start feeling like YOU again. This is a must-listen if you've ever felt like something was just a bit "off."

Candace Burch is a Hormone Health Educator with a Masters in Health Education and over 25 years of experience in the field.

Candace’s background includes working as a health editor, writer and investigative journalist in London, leading educational patient and provider initiatives for ZRT Hormone Laboratory (as their Director of Education for 12+ years), as well as spearheading "Body in Balance," a hormone testing and rebalancing weight loss program at Metabolic Research Center (a nationwide weight loss company).
Candace continues to raise awareness about hormonal health and disease prevention through her work as a writer, speaker and podcaster (Listen to Candace and her cohost, Kyle McAvoy, NP, on the Women Talking Frankly Podcast).
Today she lives in McMinnville, Oregon with her husband and son/schnoodle, Riley. Outside of hormone health, her passions include sketching, reading, dancing, music, long walks, swimming, international travel, quality time spent with loved ones, and making sure that every day is filled with purpose, love and zest for living!
Ryan Burch,CEO/Co-Founder, Your Hormone Balance
Ryan graduated from the University of Oregon in 2011 with a degree in Journalism/P.R. and a minor in Business. After moving to Los Angeles, she worked in Experiential Marketing as an Event Producer for clients such as Red Bull, Teva, Columbia Sportswear and Nike, before transitioning into a business development role for a high end event catering company in Downtown L.A.
In 2017 (as a side hustle), Ryan began helping her mom turn her passion project (helping women balance their hormones) into a fully fledged business: securing media appearances, expanding YHBs offerings, managing all client services and expanding their social media presence.
Today, Ryan is YHB's full time CEO, relying heavily on the stress management practices she's developed over the years to get through the ups + downs of entrepreneurship! She currently lives in Manhattan Beach, California, with her fiancé, Thomas. Her passions include sunset walks, singing, dancing, traveling, journaling and comedy! Ryan is also the host of the Solo 2.0 Podcast, which offers health and hormone health based content along with her sister, Jess Suchan of Body Bliss By Jess (keep reading for more on Jess!).
Jess Suchan, Holistic Health Coach
Jess Suchan is a board certified Holistic Health Coach who coaches her clients towards finding a life of bliss, free from fad diets, overexercising, and burnout. She believes that in order to change our habits we must address the “holistic picture” and compassionately investigate how all areas of our lives are interconnected.
Jess spent over a decade yo-yo dieting, exercising for punishment and ignoring the messages her body was sending her. This lifestyle coupled with a slew of stressful jobs, led her to develop debilitating migraines which she eventually cured with a holistic approach. When she discovered the power of food and lifestyle as medicine, she decided to become a health coach via the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and dedicated her time to helping others find that "2.0 version of themselves!" Today, she coaches clients privately and works in partnership with Your Hormone Balance (she also recently completed a Hormone Health Extension course through I.I.N.).
She is also the creator of the Sexy Sugar Cleanse and Sexy Swaps & Recipe Guide and in the Spring of 2021, she launched a line of superfood latte blends for detoxification & energy -a great hormone balancing swap for black coffee!
