You used to be confident, full of energy and in control …. But now you feel anything but…

“I Just DON'T FEEL GOOD In My Body Anymore

Does this sound like you?

As each day passes, you feel more and more exhausted. You just can’t seem to shake this constant fatigue you’ve been feeling, making it difficult to focus or get through your day with the level of productivity you used to enjoy.

Despite this, you push on, trying your best to ignore the nagging feeling that something is just not right.

It’s not just the tiredness that’s a problem. You’re also feeling bloated and uncomfortable in your body- there’s this overall puffiness that won’t go away. Your clothes don’t fit like they used to and your belly is noticeably bigger, leaving you feeling self-conscious and frustrated. Despite your best efforts to eat a healthy diet, you’re still gaining weight and can’t seem to shake the constant cravings for sugar and carbs.

Great sleep has become a distant memory, and even when you do manage to fall asleep, you’re often plagued by restless nights and constant waking. This only exacerbates your already short fuse, leaving you feeling irritable and on edge. To make matters worse, your memory and focus have suffered..leaving you wondering if something is seriously wrong with your brain.

...are you just expected to live like this?

oh and don't get me started on...

The aches, pains and night sweats!

The aches and pains that you’re experiencing are making you feel a lot older than you are, and no one seems to have a good explanation for why you have them. This is adding to your feelings of frustration and helplessness. If you’re still having periods, they’ve become heavy and painful, making you dread the first day or two of each cycle.

And the hot flashes! What in the actual heck is going on?! You are wondering how long you will have to put up with feeling overheated and uncomfortable. 

In short, you’re feeling the effects of these issues in every aspect of your life and it’s starting to take a toll. You’re feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next, but one thing is clear: something needs to change.

Because you can't keep living like this!

You’re measuring yourself against other seemingly perfect women, wondering why you can’t seem to get it together like they have. Each time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror, you don’t recognize yourself.

The feeling of tight clothes against your skin serves as a constant reminder that your body is bigger than you want it to be, and the mere thought of clothes shopping fills you with anxiety and dread.

If you have to use a change room, you avoid looking at the mirror because you know you’ll be forced to confront your ever changing body, and you often leave feeling worse about your body than when you arrived.

You're Sick of Feeling...


You’ve tried different diets and supplements but that hasn’t helped either. The constant effort and lack of results are taking a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, making it even more challenging to stay motivated and committed to improving your health. You are ready to give up.


You’ve been to your doctor and have been told that this is part of getting older and that much of this is normal and will pass eventually OR you’ve been offered the birth control pill, an anti-depressant, or sleeping pills to help manage your symptoms (none of which you feel good about).

and Lost...

You feel lost and don’t know where to start to regain control over your health and feel good in your body again.

You know that there has to be something you can do to start feeling better in your body but you don’t know exactly what.

I know this is A LOT to be dealing with… let’s just acknowledge that…it probably feels like you are on a runaway train that you’d love to get off immediately!

I’ve got some good news for you but I’ll start with letting you know that you are absolutely not alone. I have been there and almost every one of my clients has too. I I know what it’s like to feel out of control and like your body is betraying you and really, like you are a shadow of that woman you used to be.

I know the scale isn’t everything but for first time in a very long time I lost 3 lbs this past week. That does make me happy along with some of the other improvements… I feel calmer and less angry

Let's dream a little

How would it feel if you woke up feeling rested and energized, looking forward to starting your day with the kind of energy you haven’t felt in years? 

You look in the mirror, and notice that you’re losing inches without feeling deprived. You actually feel like a goddess as you admire your vibrant reflection in the mirror.

You’re finally feeling so good in your body that you’re no longer obsessing over the scale, and you have total food freedom because you know how to eat in a balanced way and you know what the right foods are for your body.

You’ve been able to understand your body, your hormones, and why you’ve been feeling the way you have. No longer playing whack-a-mole with your symptoms, you’ve learned that everything in the body is connected and that, feeling great, boils down to a few, totally doable key principles and practices.

You're not fearing getting older anymore

Because you know how to be well at any age

... and you're happy to be seen in family photos because damn, you feel and look good.

To top it all off, your doctor has noticed a significant improvement in your blood markers and asks you what you’ve been doing differently.

You’re even starting to enjoy clothes shopping again and are open to trying new things and putting yourself out there because your confidence is fully back. You feel at peace with your body and mind and are grateful for the journey that has brought you here.

This can be your life

And I promise you that a life free from what’s been holding you down (fatigue, cravings, bloating, weight gain, mood swings and crappy sleep) is well within reach. You are absolutely in the right place. But before I can show you how, there are a few things I want to clear up first...

Hormones 101

The information that everyone needs to know

When you understand how critical our hormones are for how we feel, you can see that ...

Your body is not working against you, even though it feels that way.

Your body is actually doing exactly what it’s supposed to. Your symptoms are all messages, like SOS signals, from your wonderful body trying to tell you that it is out of balance and that it needs help.

Want to hear the best news ever?

If you want to feel the bliss of balanced hormones, I have the perfect solution for you!

What you need is a holistic, comprehensive action plan that gives you everything you need to identify and target the root cause of your issues so you can feel energized, confident and in control again.

I have worked with Meira both 1:1 and through a group program. She is fantastic. She provides customized support to help you meet your health and wellness goals, reference materials that are easy to follow, delicious recipes and more. After implementing her program recommendations, I lost weight (21 lbs), have more energy throughout the day and sleep better at night. I loved that during her group program she gradually introduced different components of the program that we could build on each week, making things less overwhelming and easier to implement. I highly recommend working with Meira to support your wellness goals

The BodyWISE System for Hormone Balance

For women who want to feel energized, in control and finally feel good in their body, the BodyWISE System for Hormone Balance is a program designed to balance key hormones so you can say good-bye to cravings, energy slumps, sleepless nights…and finally burn fat.. plus so much more.

Unlike other programs that just focus on restriction and rules, we teach you to understand how your body actually works and how to nourish yourself, so you can take control of your health and life, and achieve lasting results.

Learn all of this and more!

I’m no stranger to the symptoms of hormone imbalance so I totally understand where you are at right now. I was inspired to create this program from my own healing journey and also, with my late mother in mind, who passed away too early in mid-life.

I started experiencing the symptoms of hormone imbalance in my late 30s after going through an intensely stressful period in my life. I had no idea at the time how chronic stress could impact my hormone levels, inflammation in my body and cause the gamut of symptoms. With the goal of better understanding what was happening in my body and how to heal myself, I dove into formal studies in Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Nutrition.

Fast forward to my 40s … I’ve encountered challenges that most women do face as they approach mid-life – challenges like weight gain (despite a “healthy” diet), fatigue, issues with sleep, brain fog, anxiety and memory issues. Of course, given my passion for health and my knowledge, I dove deep into the literature on perimenopause and menopause not only to help myself, but to help my “mid-life” clients to find answers to issues their doctors simply couldn’t help them with. I also studied with metabolism and hormone health experts and pursued a formal Certification in Women’s Hormone Health to solidify my knowledge in this area.

The result of my own personal experience both with myself and my clients, and my formal education, is this program. This is a program that is a holistic comprehensive solution to improving hormone health that could completely change the trajectory of women’s lives – as a way for women to be able to connect the dots between how they feel in their body with their nutrition and lifestyle so they are empowered and more in control of their own health and wellness.

A final word…I witnessed my own mother develop an illness that ultimately took her life at 60 years old and it is my absolute belief, after witnessing everything she went through, that it could have been avoided had she been able to take better care of herself through nutrition and stress reduction and if she had put herself and her needs first for once (if you are a mother, you probably know all too well what I’m talking about). This program is the one I wish she had had too.

Meet your coach and the creator of the BodyWISE System for Hormone Balance…

Meira Arkell

I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Culinary Nutrition Expert and  Certified Women’s Hormone Coach.

I have spent almost a decade learning about health, nutrition, using food as medicine, and women’s hormone balance and applying my diverse knowledge into practical programs with women who have experienced the life-changing results of my approach!

I have additional formal training in gut health and I have a deep interest and unique understanding of the nervous system and the multifaceted ways that stress affects the body. This knowledge informs all of my coaching and programs.

In addition to my knowledge and competence in working with women’s hormone imbalances, I have a special interest and deep knowledge of chronic pain conditions and novel approaches to healing from chronic pain.

Note: working with chronic pain is only available in my 1:1 coaching service.

Here's why you'll love it

The BodyWISE System for Hormone Balance is a comprehensive, systematic approach to healing your metabolism and balancing your hormones. We don’t just give you a list of foods, a meal plan and an exercise regimen and tell you to follow it to get results. That can only take you so far and generally is recipe for failure.

What makes BodyWISE different is we give you a step by step plan to balance hormones and heal your metabolism that is truly sustainable and our secret sauce includes our focus on these three things:

A Holistic Approach

Instead of a one dimensional program that focuses on foods to eat/ foods not to eat and willpower to stick with often restrictive regimens, BodyWISE recognizes that true health involves the intersection of physical, mental and spiritual health. BodyWISE is based in holism - we treat the body as a whole entity, recognizing that health is about more than just diet. Our program modules together are created to impact all these aspects of health. 

Learn to Understand Your Body

Unlike other programs that focus on restriction and rules, we believe you need to actually understand how your body works, how your metabolism works and how your hormones factor in in order to truly make lasting positive changes to your nutrition and lifestyle. You need to know why you are doing what you are doing. This leads to self awareness and is often the missing piece to achieving consistency. Understand how your body works —-> self-awareness —-> consistency.

Our Mindset Values

Within the program we foster an atmosphere were we value progress over perfection, we practice loving kindness for ourselves and we value curiosity to inspire participants to try new things. This creates a less stressful atmosphere where participants are free to do the program in a way that feels good to them without worrying about “being bad” or “falling off the wagon”. It’s a journey… you are human.

This is for you if..

This is NOT for you if..

Meira's approach to nutrition was a refreshing change for me. I lost 30 lbs in 5 months and it was relatively effortless. She taught me how not to be constantly hungry based on the food I ate and the time of day I was eating it. I never felt deprived and I've managed to incorporate so much of her program into my life, which has become a key success creator when I need a reset. Meira's programs work and I truly believe it's because she provides us with the knowledge and understanding of why our bodies react the way they do based on the foods we put in it. I have recommended Meira to many people and will continue to, as I know she can make the difference between success and failure in achieving long term health goals.

The program runs three times yearly – starting in January, April and September.

If registration is closed, be sure to join the waitlist for the next program to be the first to be notified when registration opens.

You do not. You can quietly take in all the learning and implement the program actions without being seen on video or actively taking part in the group. That said, the more active you can be in the group, the more engaged you will be and this drives more positive results!

Yes, all the live Zoom classes are recorded and you will receive a link to each recording. This way, if you are busy during a class, you can simply watch when it’s convenient for you.

You do not. All of the content and links to the calls will be provided in the online client portal. However, there is valuable interaction that happens within the Facebook group. It’s the place where you can ask questions and get support from me any day of the week and where I do mini trainings on various topics. It’s also a place where you can interact with other BodyWISE participants. Furthermore, all the live food demo/ cooking classes are hosted via Facebook live. I HIGHLY recommend participating on Facebook to get the full experience.

You will need 1 hour weekly to view the zoom class (either live or pre-recorded at your own convenience) and from 10 minutes to 20 minutes reading the weekly content. Other than that, you can decide how much additional time you want to commit depending on your level of participation. You might spend a little more time grocery shopping in the first couple weeks and a little extra time pre-preparing some food to ensure you are successful. It’s not a huge time commitment.

There is not possible way that you can fail at BodyWISE. You don’t have to be “perfect”. One of our values is “progress, not perfection”. Although the program is set up to provide an environment for progressive improvement in your symptoms, if you follow the tasks, you can tailor the program to your own needs and interests. Every person’s path and outcome will be different and that’s 100% ok! You have nothing to lose and only so much to gain from joining the program. Even if you didn’t put into action anything and only absorbed the information, you are positively impacting your future health and wellness

Not a problem! All live content will be recorded so you won’t miss a thing. Also, life is about enjoyment… there is no pressure to eat “perfectly” on vacation. What you will be learning will help you make healthier choices at home and while on vacations. Our mindset in this program is progress, not perfection. A week of vacation will not derail your success!

It doesn’t. I teach you to eat for hormone balance in a way that is simple and straightforward. You can delete your myfitnesspal app! That said, there are some targets for protein intake and if you are interested in fat loss, you may benefit from learning about carbohydrate macros and tracking for a short period of time. How to meet your targets will be explained in the program.

There are no guarantees but it’s very likely you will over a two month period – typically we see losses of anywhere between 7 and 20 lbs. The goal of this program is to completely reset your metabolism and allow your body to achieve hormone balance. Once your body is properly nourished and feels safe, the body is finally able to let go of stubborn fat stores. Some people find they steadily lose while others are slower. It depends on your specific physiology/ stressors and any underlying conditions, as well as how closely you follow the program. If you follow the program but don’t see any changes, we recommend having a full hormone and thyroid panel completed to see what’s going on under the hood.
Note – we focus on “fat loss”. You will be eating enough protein to avoid muscle loss (which happens with most diets). Because of this, you will see changes to your body in inches and how your clothes feel before you see changes in the scale.

Yes! This is the perfect program for managing Diabetes because blood sugar balance is foundational in everything I teach. If you are Diabetic, ensure you are checking in with your Dr. During the program as your medications will likely need to be adjusted as your ability to manage your sblood sugar will be greatly improving!

No. I do provide some meal plans for those that would like the structure but its not a requirement. You will be provided with the BodyWISE food list and a method for easily filling your plate without strict requirements. You will also receive the BodyWISE Recipe Book with over 50 of my favourite (family friendly) recipes.

Yes, you do. You can’t achieve health without learning how to properly nourish yourself with home-made meals. That said, I do give direction on how to make meal prep/ meals quick and easy and anyone can be successful at it. Each week I do a live cooking/ food prep demo where I show you how to make some great foods! Participants say it’s one of their favourite parts of the program!

Absolutely not! I’m a mom of two teenagers and I’m sensitive to the needs of moms! This program is designed to be adopted easily by the whole family and make family meals easily. I address ways to ensure meals satisfy everyone (including kids) during the program, while still supporting you in meeting your goals. You will not have to make separate meals.

All the foods are easy to find at your local grocery store – meat, poultry, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds and healthy fats will be staples.

This is not a Ketogenic program. It is a high protein, lower carbohydrate style of eating with specific foods prioritized that balance blood sugar and which are gut healing and liver supporting.

No, I’m sorry, this program is not vegan friendly. This is a meat positive program and in practice I specifically will not work within the context of a vegan diet as it can’t provide the right nutrients required for achieving hormone balance and overall health.

If you are strictly vegetarian (you eat eggs and dairy), this program won’t be ideal for you as you will have a very difficult time meeting the protein requirements. However, if you eat fish and seafood, in addition to eggs and dairy, you can make that fit in this program!

Simply send an email to and we would be happy to provide any information you need.

Just completed Meira’s 8 week body wise program and it was fantastic! If your even thinking about it but not sure don’t be! It so worth it and you deserve it. I loved the group atmosphere, the zoom classes, cooking demonstrations and daily encouragement. I feel so much better, hot flashes are virtually gone, my body composition has changed, food cravings have decreased just to name a few positive outcomes… But mostly she sets you up for success. Meira is extremely knowledgeable in her field. You won’t regret doing this program.

Why risk being stuck in the same spot forever?

Listen, if you think you aren’t ready to join BodyWISE now, there will likely be future cohorts for you to join when you are ready (but no guarantees on how long the program will run)… BUT, why would you want to wait and risk being in exactly the same spot, experiencing the same symptoms and possibly feeling even worse in your body then you do now, when you can simply start the process of reversing all of this NOW?

You know the saying…if nothing changes, nothing changes.

I don’t want to see you in the same position in 6 months or a year when BodyWISE is the perfect solution to burning fat, gaining energy, lowering inflammation, getting your moods stable, having a clear mind, and finally sleeping all night. You can totally do this and I’ll be there for you every step of the way. You have literally nothing to lose - you have access to our 21 day satisfaction guarantee and you don’t have to be “perfect” or spend hours and hours of your time to do this. It’s a no brainer. What are your waiting for?
