S3: Episode 12 - Sylvia Hall | Naturally Lifted
Updated: Feb 1
Sylvia Hall has gone through many iterations of herself and her business. She’s had her struggles that led to a better version of her. Her journey started when she was pregnant and using her time to make jewelry and sell it while she was out of work. After he pregnancies, she started feeling very down, very angry, her body didn’t feel right, her mind didn’t feel right, and she wanted to find out why.,
She was experiencing postpartum depression, and she was going through a moment when she had to have her thyroid removed because of cancer, but when they took the thyroid out, it was actually not cancer. It was removed for no reason. Her physical and mental health were not where they were supposed to be, and then she started working on having a healthier life in general.
Sylvia started eating right, and realized that a healthy diet was changing her mental health as well as her physical health. This is when she started looking into probiotics and what they do for the body and for mood. She realized that a healthy diet, and having the healthy bacteria in your stomach can truly change your mood. As she says, 80% of serotonin is produced in the stomach.
This is what inspired her to start her business, Lifted Naturals, that makes probiotic products that are specifically made to help influence mood. She has even gotten her products into large retailers, like Walmart. Her struggles have led to her success. It’s amazing how going through a truly terrible set of situations can be turned into something so healthy, not just for her, but for so many people now.
I hope you enjoy hearing about her journey, about what she has overcome, and about all the great things that she has done for herself and for so many people. Thank you for the amazing conversation, Sylvia, I learned a lot, and I know the viewers will, too!
