Course Description

Chief Hormone Fixer Upper

Maria Claps

I’m Maria Claps and I’m an expert on women’s changing bodies (aka  perimenopause and menopause) because I’ve graduated from it and earned  an honorary degree from the School of Hard Knocks. Yup, I had terrible  PMS and it wasn’t until I figured out that it was a hormone imbalance  that I found relief. I’ve also come out on the other side of the “big  change” (aka menopause) so I can help you with that too.Besides lifelong study and personal experience, I’m also a certified  health coach, functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner and a  Gottfried Institute-trained natural hormone expert. I’m also currently  studying with the lovely Jenny Burrell, out of the UK, in a program  called “3rd Age Women’s Health”.Oh, I’m also a mom to four grown children. So by default, you can  call me a life coach too. What I really mean, is that I get it.Wherever  you are in your health at the moment, there is always room for  improvement. I believe one of the reasons we’ve become so collectively  unhealthy is because we’ve stopped listening to our bodies. Basic  literacy of the female hormonal systems is our birthright.That’s where I come in. I help women balance their hormones and listen to their bodies so they can live life on their terms.After all, what good is the wisdom you’ve acquired and the sense of  knowing you own, if you don’t also have the health you need in order to  enjoy your next act.Balance your hormones, Love your life.
