Our story is your story. It’s all of our stories.
As women and people with cycles, we’ve been let down by the healthcare systems supposed to support us. Tuune is here to change that.
We’re building a fairer, personalized, medical system that puts our phenomenal hormones center stage—transforming the future of healthcare forever (no biggie).
Where it all began
Shardi Nahavandi, our CEO and cofounder, was misdiagnosed with bowel cancer. She couldn’t drink water, she couldn’t see, her hair was falling out. But doctors couldn’t find anything physically wrong. The prognosis? Simply, stress.
It didn’t add up. Shardi knew her symptoms were serious so why wasn’t she getting any clear answers? Doctors wouldn’t listen. Set on uncovering the answers herself she quit her job and a career pivot, two Masters degrees and countless research papers later, she found her kryptonite that no doctor could diagnose — a hormone imbalance.
