Jordan Younger, AKA The Balanced Blonde, started blogging full-time back in 2013 — and, since then, her blog has turned into a book, a podcast, a brand, and an incredible community of humans who love her and her message!

In 2017, Jordan was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme disease, and she stepped up to be an absolute Lyme WARRIOR, sharing her disease openly with her community and advocating for others who are struggling to find treatment for this disease. Lyme is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States with 300,000 people diagnosed every year, but there are also thousands of misdiagnoses too and it’s still a very controversial disease. Our hope is that, by sharing her story, we may be able to help someone listening find the answers they need.
