Women from their ​teens to their 50's and beyond have demanding lives that start with balancing heavy school workloads with sports, jobs and other activities, and continue with balancing work, childcare, and aging parents!

The endocrine system shoulders a lot of this demand.  

Building hormonal resilience is key to thriving. And, hormonal balance is essential for overcoming common symptoms from ​anxiety to hot flashes to insomnia to weight loss resistance. PLUS... women over 35 are in a unique position to PREVENT some of the most common chronic diseases of aging – dementia, osteoporosis, cancer, and cardiovascular disease – by addressing endocrine balance, and the keys to brain health. By addressing blood sugar balance, iron sufficiency and metabolism, and inflammation women feel energetic, pain free, mentally calm and focused, and can easily maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime!

In th​is hybrid online and in-person (or recorded if you can't attend live), you’ll learn about specific cases, testing examples, and a step-by-step systematic approach to lifestyle medicine, nutrition, and supplement recommendations for hormone balance.

What you will learn from Dr. Drummond during the Balancing Hormones workshops:

The HPA Axis and Stress Hormones

In this workshop, 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.

The HPT Axis and Thyroid Hormones

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.

The ​HPO Axis and Female Reproductive Hormones

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.

Women’s Brain Health and Hormone Balance

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 by optimizing the health of the brain. These safe, effective, and natural tools will help your clients feel clear, focused, calm, vibrant and energized again! This workshop is the lead-in to the session with Trudy on Balancing Neurotransmitters.


Anxiety is on the rise and women are affected at much high rates than men, often with the onset of severe symptoms during PMS, as they approach perimenopause and during menopause. These symptoms can include: worry, overwhelm, fears, phobias, ruminating thoughts, obsessive behaviors and OCD, negative self-talk, imposter syndrome, insomnia and sugar cravings.

By addressing key neurotransmitter deficiencies in your patients and clients, they will see relief of symptoms quickly while other underlying issues such as hormone imbalances, food sensitivities, dysbiosis, infections etc. are addressed. This gives them hope and a willingness to make required dietary changes without feeling deprived and needing willpower.

In these workshops, we’ll discuss how to use targeted individual amino acids to balance neurotransmitters, the trial method, specific protocols, and cases.

What you will learn from Trudy during the Balancing Neurotransmitters workshops:

The Foundations of Balancing Neurotransmitters with Amino Acids

In this workshop we’ll cover what targeted individual amino acids are and how they can and should be part of a comprehensive approach for all practitioners working with women, plus how they fit in and complement the hormone balancing approach discussed by Jessica. We’ll also cover how to work with your clients and patients using the questionnaire and trial method, and where to start.

Low GABA type of Anxiety

In this workshop we’ll recap the signs of the low GABA type of physical tense anxiety, some of the latest GABA research on possible mechanisms of action, myths about the blood brain barrier and GABA, best forms of GABA, clinical pearls, and cautions and nuances to be aware of. We’ll wrap up with a brief discussion on benzodiazepines and tapering challenges.

Low Serotonin type of Anxiety

In this workshop you’ll get a recap of the signs of the low serotonin type of anxiety: worrying, ruminating, fears, phobias and panic attacks. We’ll cover tryptophan and 5-HTP and when to use which amino acid, some of the latest research on both, possible concerns about quinolinic acid, the low serotonin hypothesis, and potential collagen issues. The best forms of tryptophan will be covered, plus clinical pearls, and cautions and nuances to be aware of. We’ll wrap up with a brief discussion on SSRIs and serotonin syndrome.

Low Blood Sugar, Low Endorphins and Low Catecholamines

In this workshop you’ll get a recap of the signs of low blood sugar, low endorphins (related to both physical and emotional pain) and low catecholamines, and how to trial the respective amino acids (glutamine, DPA and tyrosine), plus where this fits in when addressing low GABA and low serotonin.

Case Studies and Amino Acids Beyond Anxiety

In this module case studies will illustrate how to apply this in your everyday work. You’ll have the opportunity to brainstorm ideas too. You’ll learn about applications of the individual amino acids outside of the anxiety, worry and panic attacks women experience: pelvic pain issues, asthma, addictions, ADHD, PMS, burning mouth syndrome, fibromyalgia, bulimia and how to work with children via their mothers.

Testimonials from the live San Diego presentation*

Trudy and Gabriela

Trudy’s and Jessica’s workshop has taken my practice in an exciting new direction! The information I learned about neurotransmitters and hormones provided an entirely new set of tools for working with clients experiencing challenges with mood and focus. I also work with children and teens and was thrilled to see that the presenters included therapeutic considerations and applications for this population. Within a week of the workshop, three clients expressed interest in working with amino acid protocols and hormone balancing. Thank you, Trudy and Jessica, for helping me upgrade my practice!

Lauren Bahr

I attended the live conference in San Diego taught by Trudy Scott and Jessica Drummond. When I saw that they were offering this course, I knew I wanted to be there. These women are pioneers in the area of Functional Nutrition. They are spreading hope and healing to so many women. The information I learned in this 1-day course helped me deepen my understanding of the chronic health issues millions of women are struggling with including: anxiety, depression, fatigue, digestive issues, sleep difficulty and more. This course provided research, case studies and practical steps that you can put into use for yourself and your clients right away. Meeting Trudy really made a big impact for me and inspired me to really narrow my niche for my health coaching business and work with “moms who want to ease their anxiety and help their kids with autism.” I also wish I’d known how effective amino acids were before being prescribed a benzodiazepine. As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I have been helping my clients improve their nutrition and self-care; this course re-enforced that this is the foundation of optimizing production and balance of hormones and neurotransmitters. This course gave me confidence to recommend specific supplements to my clients so they can take their healing to the next level.

Adele Bradley

As a licensed clinical mental health counselor and psychotherapist, I am always very interested in learning about more holistic ways to help my clients. Trudy’s approach of utilizing nutritional solutions – which are undeniably solution focused – can offer real change and when using amino acid food supplements, change can be dramatic and come within five minutes. I have supported clients doing amino acid trials and then using amino acids for anxiety, low mood, concentration issues, food cravings and sleep. Numerous friends and family members have also benefited from Trudy’s research and wisdom. I personally have tried a variety of her recommendations and I am an amino acid believer!

— Adèle V. Bradley, MA, LCMHC

Nobody knows anxiety, mood and neurotransmitters the way Trudy does. Combining food and supplements like amino acids, her approach is compassionate and rooted in science. Trudy has also personally helped me with my own anger issues (from a neurotransmitter imbalance). That has changed how I see the world.

— Magdalena Wszelaki, endocrine nutrition expert and author of Cooking for Hormone Balance

Trudy is an expert on the relationship of food and mood, an often-neglected area in the health of persons with mental illness. I heard her present at the Micronutrients for Mental Health conference and she was an engaging and passionate speaker. Her lecture was informative and provided practical information.
