Our Missionrye, jess, candace3

Since founding YHB, we’ve noticed that many women are completely in the dark about how their hormones and their cycles work - and how suboptimal levels are impacting how they feel!

Our clients often ask “why don’t we learn about this in school!?” and feel guilty for not having a better understanding of their own body.

The problem is: we go to our doctors and are told it’s all in our head, or are pushed another prescription...often without any testing or investigation into possible *root* causes!

So we’re here to guide and teach, to help you learn about your unique body and all the tools available to relieve symptoms naturally, without necessarily* needing prescriptions and endless doctors visits...(*exceptions apply, especially with medical conditions).

This is YOUR path, your life and your health... We are here to help you learn and develop preventative strategies to keep hormonal symptoms at bay and support yourself at any age!

In House Holistic Health Coach:

Jessica Suchan


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 hormone imbalances that severely impacted her quality of life. After getting to the root via saliva testing and natural rebalancing practices, she discovered the power of food and lifestyle as medicine and decided to become a health coach via the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, dedicating her time to helping others step into the "2.0 version of themselves!" Today, she coaches clients privately via her 1:1 coaching program 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 Swaps & Recipe Guide and Body Bliss superfood latte blends for detoxification & energy -a great hormone balancing swap for black coffee or sugary lattes!

Two Generations of Hormone Balance

Untitled design-min(from left) Ryan, Candace & Jess

- From the perspective of Candace’s daughters, Ryan and Jess -

Growing up, our mom was a health writer and educator, so we were taught to value nutrition, sleep and “balance” from an early age (not that we always listened…).

Since she had us later in life (at age 37 + 40), we were still really young when she hit perimenopause and began experiencing roller coaster symptoms of imbalance, including hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings (resulting in some pretty memorable meltdowns!).

Thankfully, because of her career in health and her commitment to natural / holistic remedies, she quickly learned how to balance her hormones naturally, through a combination of saliva testing and holistic rebalancing techniques. With this newfound experience, she decided to build upon her Masters degree in Health Education and specialize in hormone health, eventually becoming the "Director of Education and Outreach" at ZRT Hormone Testing Laboratory for over a decade (developing patient + provider education, coordinating event conferences, reviewing thousands of test results and liaising with functional medicine experts specializing in hormone balance).

At work, our mom would primarily interact with scientists, providers, doctors and pharmacists - but in her spare time, we watched her help dozens of friends and family members find relief from frustrating symptoms of hormone imbalance by following her holistic rebalancing suggestions. Although we would roll our eyes and change the subject every time she brought up hormones at the dinner table (we were still too young to understand or care about hormones...), we truly admired her passion and enthusiasm for helping others balance their hormones and we KNEW she was born to do this work.

Flash forward 15 years, and we have now experienced our OWN hormonal ups and downs (including irregular/missing cycles, low libido, anxiety, sleep issues, low energy, mood swings, headaches), and have followed our mom’s exact testing and rebalancing protocol with much success (you can hear our full hormone rebalancing story on our podcast HERE)! After experiencing the profound impact of natural hormone rebalancing in our own lives, we became even STRONGER believers in the work our mom was doing, and began spreading word about it to everyone and anyone who would listen!

After receiving numerous positive testimonials, Candace and Ryan joined forces to launch 'Your Hormone Balance' in 2017, (while Candace continued her full time work at ZRT labs and Ryan worked in business development). At the time, Jess was beginning her career as a health coach (having recently graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition) and was in the process of launching her own health coaching business, Body Bliss By Jess..

With our combined skills, education and passion for hormone health, business, stress management and nutrition, it was a no brainer for us to turn YHB into a family business, combining forces to spread word about hormone testing and all-natural rebalancing (Jess now works in partnership with YHB as our “In House Holistic Health Coach").

We are so grateful to our mom for teaching us about hormones from a young age, and are FIRED UP to help women of all ages feel informed, educated and supported when it comes to their personal health and hormone journey!

We look forward to working with you,

Rye Burch + Jessica Suchan
