about health to empower
ealth to Empower is a bank of resources to help you heal your body and do your best every day.
The founder of HTE, Stefani Ruper, recently received a PhD in the study of religion and science at the University of Oxford. Stefani works very hard and juggles many projects such as writing books and hosting podcasts about the human condition. Stefani is deeply committed to making a difference in the world with her work in philosophy. She has been a scholar her entire life, but has also carved out space to in her life to help empower women’s health and wellbeing.
After a lifetime of suffering from debilitating health conditions including extreme migraines and a kidney condition that almost ended her life, Stefani finally had enough. During her master’s degree, Stefani stayed up (extra) late, digging into the medical literature and figuring out what her body needed in order to heal.
It worked. In addition to becoming healthier and happier, Stefani was able to produce higher quality work. She was able to bring more of her full, real, creative self to her philosophy projects.
Stefani became a firm believer in the idea that in order to achieve amazing things, you have to take care of your body first.
Now Stefani hops out of bed every morning feeling energised, confident, and excited to take on a full day. It’s not perfect, of course. It never will be. But Stefani has made enormous strides, and she will keep on striding.
TO CARE FOR OTHERS YOU MUST FIRST
CARE FOR YOURSELF
Stefani founded Health to Empower, and all of us on the team now support her and follow in her footsteps, because women have unique bodies. The delicacy and intricacy of the female hormone system should never be underestimated.
Women also have unique psychological needs. The power of society to make women feel small, ugly, and weak should never be underestimated.
Health to Empower exists because Stefani knows all of this first hand. She’s wrestled with it. She’s almost been beaten by it—then triumphed.
We here at Health to Empower have been there. We know what it’s like. And so, if we can do it, you can. We know you have it in you to learn about your body, nourish yourself, and smash your goals.
We are here to help you do it.
