In this module, you will learn the biochemistry and physiology behind how the brain and adrenals support women during physical or emotional stress, and how nutrition and lifestyle strategies can help build resilience in the face of stress.
Thyroid imbalance issues are increasingly common for women. Women with thyroid symptoms such as hair loss, weight loss resistance, fatigue, anxiety, and cold intolerance need your support. Learn to use evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle strategies to optimize thyroid function.
If you work with women with infertility, low libido, pelvic pain, painful sex, irregular and heavy periods and other symptoms of sex hormone imbalance, you need to deepen your understanding of the sex hormones and how to support their balance holistically.
You can't look at the stress hormone system, thyroid hormone system or sex hormone system in isolation. They're all connected.
All of the hormonal axes - the adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormone axes - originate in the brain. If you work with women who are anxious, have sleep issues, brain fog, adrenal issues, memory loss, or are just mentally exhausted and overwhelmed, this module will give you the tools that you need to balance all of the hormonal systems from the brain. These safe, effective, and natural tools will help your clients feel clear, focused, calm, vibrant and energized again!
Learn to understand diurnal saliva cortisol testing, DUTCH testing, neurotransmitter testing, and organic acids testing to better understand the complete hormone picture, through the lens of patient cases.

It was absolutely marvellous.— Rachel Eyre, Health Coach, The Healthy Womb
I have taken three courses with the Integrative Women’s Health Institute and each time I am impressed with the amount of content, data and practical skills I come away with that I an integrate into my practice straight away. Not only have I developed my coaching skills beyond what I thought was possible, it has had a profound effect on my clients, letting them take the lead in many cases where they have previously felt hopeless.
The amount of evidence for nutritional strategies and the systematic approach has truly revolutionised my practice and helped me to make skilled recommendations to my clients where required.
If you work with women, I cannot recommend this course highly enough.

My overall impression of the Hormones 101 course was extremely positive. The clarity and depth of content delivered is first class. The facilitation style of Dr. Jessica Drummond is superb. She took complex topics and made them manageable.
This course will certainly support my practice, and I urge anyone looking to specialize in women's health to consider the Integrative Women's Institute. The content will help you take your practice to the next level.— Robyn Spens, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach UK
I wasn't sure what to expect! I really signed up for the Hormones 101 course because I feel that any knowledge from the IWHI is valuable! It was the first course i signed up to with Jessica Drummond, and I have now enrolled in further studies. It was that good!
Hormones 101 was short, but very detailed and really made me understand the affects of stress on the hormone system. I find the Facebook group very valuable also. Seeing other therapists asking questions is enabling me to learn also. I'm looking forward to my next stage of learning, so that I can offer even more support and education to my female clients.— Amy O'Mara, Holistic Therapies & Business Coach
