If you are done with deprivation, guessing and feeling alone on your health journey… 

Then it is time to commit to a new approach!!  After all, they say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So, why not try something new? 

If you are done with deprivation, guessing and feeling alone on your health journey… 

Then it is time to commit to a new approach!!  After all, they say that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So, why not try something new? 

Feeling ashamed about your health struggles? 

It’s Not Your Fault.

If you are like many other women struggling to feel good, chances are that you are operating from the belief that you aren’t DOING enough.  

But the truth is, most of you are DOING too much! Or focusing all of your efforts in an area that doesn’t get you the results that you want.

Have you ever experienced:

Increasing your cardio and attempting to eat less calories, thinking it would fix your health?

Followed a strict diet with the promises that your hormones, skin issues, PMS and moodiness would fall in line?

Bought random supplement after supplement that the internet promised would solve your problems, just to end up with a supplement graveyard

We have too.

And that is OK, because that’s all you knew.. UNTIL NOW!

With a “do it yourself” mindset your results are dependent on magically stumbling onto the perfect plan for you on the internet.  Or piecing together the next appointment with a specialist, since even your doctor tells you that all your regular blood work “looks great!

And then, even if you find something that happens to fit your personal biochemistry and current hormone and neurotransmitter levels, then the next step is to keep up with the lifestyle changes.  How do you stay motivated and accountable?

This creates a constant need for something new to try and each failed attempt secures your belief that “nothing will ever work for you”.  And once that belief takes hold… 

Nothing CAN work for you. (Because that’s just how the brain is wired in all of us.)

This is the belief that will keep you trapped in the downward spiral, that leads to stress, exhaustion and feeling overwhelmed. 

So, if having amazing health seems unrealistic or not possible to you, it is time to lose the “do it yourself’ mindset or you will stay stuck in your old pattern. 

Because Doing this on Your Own is NOT that Easy to Do!!

It seems like it would be straightforward, right? 

Eat healthy food, move your body, sleep at night and take care of yourself.  Boom! Your cycle is smooth, your acne disappears, you have energy for days right?! 

Unfortunately… NO. 

If that were true, we wouldn’t be talking to women daily who are dealing with things like this

9
Severe fatigue that has you nearly conking out at your latest video conference.
9
Weight issues that have you secretly unbuttoning your pants, no matter how hard you try to peel off the pounds.
9
Adult acne that you’re so sick & tired of trying to cover. At this point, Sephora is eating up all your budget.
9
Cramps that have you curled over in pain, grimacing through sales calls.
9
Infertility issues, ‘cause business babies aren’t the only thing you desire.
9
Problems after birth, even when your colleagues seem to bounce-back with no issue.
9
Anxiety and mood swings that have you sobbing while scrolling Instagram for no apparent reason. #sobwhilescroll

It is not a lack of information keeping you stuck.  There are 1,298,501 people on the internet  (we made that number up, but it is a LOT!) who can tell you how to rock your hormone health.  It is a lack of customization and understanding. A lack of understanding the messages being sent from YOUR brain to your body.

What does customization
look like?

It looks like understanding exactly what is happening at the most fundamental level inside your body AND your mind…and having it all work FOR you, instead of AGAINST your desires.

To truly have long term health success, we have to create a lasting lifestyle and belief system that will carry us through the ups and downs in our health journey.  

And just like we’ve helped hundreds of other women understand their personal plan for success, NOW we want to help you!

We first met and bonded over our shared love of holistic, integrative and comprehensive medicine. Our belief is that, in order to fully heal your body, you have to commit to a lifestyle approach to health.

Both of us struggled for a really, really (really!) long time with our own personal hormonal and adrenal problems, so we understand the pain.  We know how tough it can be to take steps towards better health when you’re not sure where to start or how to progress! It’s for this reason that we’re devoted to making it easier, faster and less stressful for others. 

We can’t wait to share our knowledge with you…and see all the amazing results to follow!

See Why So Many Women are having BREAKTHROUGHS with this Program:

I started off in a really shaky place, compounded with anxiety and stress… Shifts started to happen immediately for me.  Seeing my DUTCH and Neurotrasmitter results was really incredible because I knew something was off but just couldn’t see it!! ” – Sarah

Feeling a sense of relief that I have so many concrete tools in my toolbox to use at any given time depending on what my body needs!” – Deniz

This truly was one of the best investments that I have ever made for myself. I didn’t take any pain medication for my cramps! And my PMS was so much better. When I hear someone is pregnant I don’t go through the roller coaster of negative emotions.” – Jessica

“I was at the complete end of my rope when I joined Healthy Hormones, from practitioner to practitioner, from anxiety to weight…. After seeing my results and learning it’s not in your head, it’s not that you are broken, there are communication issues… this was huge for me!” – Sara

Each module in Healthy Hormones contains the plan and resources specifically created to walk you step by step through the transformation from frustrated patient to empowered health detective. 

Let us show you what’s waiting for you inside once you become a member.

MODULE 01 

Accountability and commitment

 Let’s kick off the program on the right foot! During week 1, we’ll dig into the deeper reasons why you are doing this program and create a supportive environment for you.  We guide you through the same exercises and processes we use to set our goals and to get you quickly UNSTUCK and ON TRACK, so you can face any challenge with confidence and clarity, knowing you’ll come out on top.

MODULE 02

The Sneaky Strategies to Actually Get Restorative Sleep At Night

How is your sleep, are you waking between 1-3 am? Are you able to fall asleep and stay asleep? In this module we will share why this may be the case! We will also talk about the role of caffeine such as caffeine half-lives and bedtime rituals.  We’ll explore your caffeine routine, how caffeine half-lives are impacting your adrenal health as well as your sleep patterns and we’ll give you several effective tips we’ve learned along the way that you can implement into your own bedtime routine for better sleep.

MODULE 03

What Doctors Won’t Tell you About Your Hormones and Adrenals

We want you to walk away from the program really understanding your adrenals and physiology. We have found that with a clear understanding of what is going on underneath, the ladies in our groups have more motivation and desire to do what is best for themselves daily.  During week 3, we’ll explain how adrenal health is related to the rest of your body. We will cover adrenal physiology, HPA/HPO axis and related hormones such as insulin and the different stages of adrenal dysfunction.

MODULE 04

PMS, PCOS & The Secret to Easy Snacks That Nourish Your Hormones

Although PMS may be common, we believe that it is not “normal”.  Let’s dig into PMS and what your body is actually trying to tell you.  Along with PMS, PCOS is also something that many of our ladies area dealing with, we will help you understand if that is you and what to do about it. 

 Have you ever noticed that when you make health and food complicated that you don’t stick with it?  We help you find add-ins instead of taking things away to build up your hormone building nutrients!  

MODULE 05

How to Eat Healthy Without Guilt, Punishment or Shame

In this module we are going to share how to get optimal hormone health nutrients without hours of meal prep.  We have also noticed that there is even more confusion about WHEN to eat  (and how this is different for women than men!).  And when it comes to food, being able to decode labels at a grocery store is a great tool to have in your toolbox.

MODULE 06

The Truth About Eating Out & Your Digestion

Learn how to finally enjoy going out to restaurants and being a guest at someone’s house without derailing your health efforts. In addition to navigating meals out, in module 6  we will be discussing why regular bowel movements are incredibly important for hormone health!! You will learn all of our favorite tricks to keep things moving. 

 

MODULE 07

Releasing Weight without Deprivation.

Adrenal and hormonal imbalances can be big contributors to weight fluctuations, so in week 7 we will dive into why that is and how working on adrenal health can get you back to your ideal weight. We will address the physical imbalances as well as our thoughts and beliefs that may be keeping you stuck. 

In addition, we’ll be sharing with you our all time favorite teas and tea blends to add to your daily adrenal health protocol.

MODULE 08

Hot Flashes & Our Favorite Energy Boosting Hack (and how to eat it) 

While not everyone deals with the same symptom such as hot flashes, we think it is important to understanding the reason behind your symptoms. It helps to have a deeper understanding of your cortisol and hormone levels.  And whether you have hot flashes or not, we are sharing our very favorite energy boosting hack.. one that our past group members swear by!

MODULE 09

Discover How to Make your Environment Work For Your Hormone Health

We’ll cover everything from the water you drink, to your skin care routine, to the cleaning products you use and more! Your environment plays a big role in your hormonal health, too.

MODULE 10

Detox & How to Manage Stress Without Losing Your Mind

Learn how to clear your mind and home of clutter. This is just as important as cleaning up your diet and we have a lot of tips we can’t wait to share with you (along with a bonus guide!)

And don’t forget about the importance of open detoxification pathways!  We have seen this be the secret weapon to more easily shifting hormone health for many women.

MODULE 11

The Secret to Being Your Own Health Detective

Understanding how other organ systems affect your hormone health and finding sneaky energy robbers that are keeping you stuck will help you to become your own best health detective!  Take these tools with you so that the next time you are experiencing a hormone shifting event (loss, moving, having a baby etc) you will be prepared!

MODULE 12

Where do I go from here? 

We will cover how to navigate the next steps in your health and when is appropriate to retest hormones and neurotransmitters.  This module also covers reasons for acne and how it related to your cycle.

Test Don’t Guess 

Confused about what health advice to trust?

One expert says to eat kale daily, but another says not to ever consume kale!  It’s confusing, and we understand! We’ve been there. The empowering realization is that there is no “right way”. That’s because what works for me, may not work for you. We are all different!

When we use functional labwork to look at underlying imbalances, we no longer have to guess what works! 

Instead, we’ll develop a customized plan for optimal health for YOU.  We start with the foundation of what works for 90% of the women that we work with. From there, we can carefully create a process for you to utilize the tools that do and do not work for you

You will have access to self-order functional lab work including the DUTCH test and Neurotransmitter Testing from Neurogistics.  

“Working with Megan and Alex has helped me see that what I believe I can hold on my plate and what my body can actually hold are two different amounts. As a coach, who is constantly focused on the care and support of my clients, I realized that over time I had depleted myself.  After getting the Dutch and Neuro tests, I am so grateful to see real, raw data to show me the shifts I needed to make to feel freakin’ amazing again.”

“Coming into my experience working with the Zesty Ginger ladies, I felt like I had tried everything. This wasn’t my first rodeo in the natural healing space… I had worked with a naturopath, chiropractor, nutritionist, acupuncturist, and functional medicine doc and we had run through the gamut of strategies. Saunas, supplements, deep breathing, diets, cleanses – you name it, I had tried it. I was still void of energy, experiencing killer brain fog that was affecting my work and I felt like I had nothing left to give to my family. That’s about when I was introduced to Megan and Dr. Alex and they opened my mind to hormone and neurotransmitter testing. Truthfully, I was open but skeptical. I had done so many blood tests, hair analysis tests and peed on more sticks than I cared to remember. But it wasn’t until those tests came back and I started working along side them that I finally felt a shift! The first day I started taking the supplements recommended based on my tests, I told my hubby that I felt like I could see in HD! It was wild. And I was already taking (prior to that) upwards of 65 supplement pills a day. I started taking less, but what was perfect for me based on my results and something started to click. And because I’m a research junkie, I loved that they walked me through the how and the why of all of it so I could understand what was going on in my body and it changed. It’s hard to express how much these two and their protocols have impacted my life – I feel like in many ways they helped me get my life back! If you’re a woman and haven’t done this yet… don’t wait another minute. It’s a must!”

6 LIVE Belief Busting Trainings

Many of the members who come into our group think that they are just missing the right supplement, a new elixir or maybe they haven’t had the best functional lab work.  And while all these aspects are incredibly important often there is much more going on underneath.  

Have you experienced anything like this? 

I tell myself every day that I will start a new habit tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes.

I am really good in the beginning of a new program and then seem to drop off a few weeks into it.

I feel like I have wasted my time with plans and programs that didn’t work. 

I believe that things that work for other people just don’t work for me. 

Our daily thoughts and our beliefs can use up a TON of energy, especially if they are working AGAINST the direction we want to go.

So what comes first? Is it my imbalances that are making me so angry, anxious or depressed or are my angry, anxious and depressing thoughts that are leading to my imbalances?  Well, this is a chicken or egg argument!  

What we DO know is that they both make a difference.  So while we are helping to physically shift your biochemistry, neurotransmitters and nutrient status with the lifestyle changes in the weekly modules we will also help you shift your thoughts and feelings that could be telling your body to keep making stress hormones!

I’m having a fantastic month! My last period was so much better and my libido has been through the roof. Just ovulated on day 16 instead of 20, and had lots of cervical mucous. My energy is good and my mindset (thanks to you and Kathrin) is in a great place. I feel like I haev so many tools in my toolbox now which taks a lot of the anxiety away. I miss the group too, especially learning from you and Dr. Alex! 

Trying to figure out what direction to go next with my career as I’ve been inspired to dig into doing some sort of health/mindset coaching to help other women! I guess I never realized how spiritual I am and am really digging into my belief systems so I know that has to be a part of it.

Accountability System for Success

Ever been really excited about something when you first got started, but then around week 3 or 4 started to lose your momentum?  Yup, we have too!  

We implement an *optional* (but highly recommended!) system inside our program so that you can have a virtual shoulder to lean on.  Some of the women who became accountability buddies in our group over 5 years ago still stay in contact and have even flown to meet each other!  The power of connecting with someone else who understands what you are going through is priceless.

Here is how it will work: 

  1. Grab an accountability buddy in the FB Group (we walk you through how to do this!) 
  2. Schedule to meet up in the way that works best for both of you. Most of our graduates enjoyed weekly texts, emails or video call check-ins.
  3. Use our Weekly Check-In Worksheet & Weekly Check-In Spreadsheet to stay on track, discuss your wins and struggles.

Why should you listen to us?

Dr. Alex is a functional MD, trained at the University of Chicago.  She was also a consultant for Precision Analytical, the creators of the DUTCH test that is used inside this program.  Besides her extensive education in both conventional & functional medicine, she’s experienced severe endometriosis, recovered from a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure, has gone through multiple rounds of IVF and recovered from 18 years of chronic pain…all which help her show up for the women inside the Healthy Hormones Group Program.

Megan is an engineer turned Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner with a long history of helping women optimize their health. She’s also a DUTCH certified practitioner and an ADAPT trained provider with a passion for all things functional. Megan fell off the hormonal cliff after the birth of her first child…and has dedicated her life since then to making sure that no other mom has to go through the same thing.

Together, Dr. Alex & Megan have over 15 years of experience and have helped thousands of women return to feeling their best…and living their life with ZEST.  It’s your turn to get back to YOU!

(PS: As you can tell by the photo, we’re best friends and have a BUNCH of fun doing what we do.)

Meet the Coaches

Katie Klingensmith

Aloha! My name is Katie, and I’ve  been a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Prana Flow Yoga teacher since 2010. 

But my REAL journey learning about health and wellness started when I was a teenager, and my mom was diagnosed with MS. I learned how the power with which we nurture ourselves through food, lifestyle and mindset can have profound effects on how we show up in the world. 

Lucky for me, when I was told I had PCOS, I already had tools to work with to manage my health.

I fell in love with the intelligence of the human body to heal itself when we nurture and love it. My passion lies in sharing my knowledge and helping women live healthily and fully!

 

Kylene Terhune

Kylene Terhune is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Autoimmune Protocol Coach, Wife, Mom, and foodie. A former opera singer who struggled with her own health challenges, Kylene now works with women across the country using functional lab testing to help them uncover the hidden stressors making them feel sick and tired.

Kylene helps women with chronic and complex digestive complaints go from frustrated and in pain, to happy and in charge of their lives again. She believes the gut is truly the foundation of health and an incredible avenue to facilitate healing in all other areas of the body. By using the lab results and incorporating personalized nutrition, lifestyle and supplemental protocols, her clients see results like weight loss, more energy, better sleep, improved digestion, balanced hormones, regulated bowel movements, and even managing or reversing autoimmune symptoms

 

Who it IS for: 

If you are ready to have the energy, drive and clarity to start living out a vibrant, healthy life of your true passion 

If you are willing to carve out the necessary time and effort to learn and implement and be coachable!

If you are open to questioning your beliefs 

If you will show up fully for yourself and others 

….Then here is your chance!

You can’t expect anything to change if you aren’t willing to invest in yourself!!  

HEALTHY HORMONES IS

NOT FOR EVERYONE  

Healthy Hormones group members say this is a life changing experience when they were fully ready to immerse themselves. 

The program is more about practicing a new way of BEING, taking ACTION and tapping into your INTUITION than it is about learning new information.  It refocuses your mindset so that you can KNOW what is the best next step for you, instead of jumping from shiny thing to shiny thing.   And you will get all the accountability and systems to keep you going!  We approach health like no one else out there (and we have success stories to prove there is a different way!) 

But, it is definitely not for everyone. 

If you are looking for a quick-fix or the ONE THING that is going to restore your health, this is not for you.

If you are looking for someone to TELL you  exactly what to eat and drink, instead of learning to listen to your body, this is not for you. 

If you are looking to blame, shame or FORCE your body to submit, this is not for you.  

If you are not open to exploring beyond the physical body and how your subconscious mind, spirit and life lessons are a part of your journey, this may not be for you.

The transformation is in the transaction

So, how much is my investment?

Healthy Hormones is an investment for those that are committed to make themselves and their health a priority for the next 12 weeks.  It is not a one-off $300 appointment with your functional doctor or a $99/month gym membership. 

This is a small investment in yourself to pay huge dividends in the future.

One that pays you back every day that you have your health… that you jump up out of bed, play with your children and have the energy and clarity to live out your passion.

It is a transformation that frees you from the overwhelmed patient mindset that keeps you stuck and struggling. And gives you the tools to take charge of your own health.

This is exactly what we used to teach 1-on-1 in our $8000/yr program, but at a fraction of the price to you.

For just six installments of $450 you can get started immediately. 

That’s right!  Join by Feb 8th 2021 and get started for just $450 today.

When you join Healthy Hormones Group Program you also get 4 AMAZING Bonus Bundles to make your success even easier, and tools that simplify everything that you do! Starting with…

Bonus #1:

Your Functional Lab work guide

20+ Videos to Discover how to understand your functional lab work so that you don’t have to rely on a practitioner every time that you retest. 

Bonus #2

Your Guide to Calm 

If you are like many of the women that we work with, perhaps you don’t make time for yourself.  You may be aware that spending more time in a state of ‘rest and digest’ is the most important thing for your health, but it just hasn’t risen up to the top of the To-Do List!

For that reason, we have simplified a way to help you by including a short weekly video to follow along with to help you get into the parasympathetic nervous system state.

Key to Successful Healing: 12 Weekly 5 min Video with Parasympathetic Instruction

AND one of the live weekly calls each month will be dedicated to creating a space for YOU.  

3 LIVE Relaxation Techniques to add to add to your toolkit

We have included THREE POWERFUL practices : 

Face Yoga  —

Loa Blasucci is an author, Energy Medicine Practitioner, certified sports nutritionist, Speaker, and Certified Yoga and fitness instructor. 

Her work in Hollywood began a lifetime of studying the aging process of the face. The format she shares contains energy medicine, PT to condition the upper spine and reduce aging in the face, and stress relief. This fusion brings a refreshing healthy glow to the skin. You’ll notice improved circulation, firmer muscle tone, less puffiness in the face, and a boost in facial brightness. 

The added benefits? Less muscle tension, a calmer mind and pure stress relief. I love the little smile you’ll have when your friends ask, you look great, what’s going on?

Breathwork  —

Breathwork has quickly become a staple for our own health journeys. It has the capability to process stuck emotions, move stale beliefs, and propel us into a more aligned way of being. 

We use Breathwork as part of the program as a powerful tool for transformation for this reason.

And learning this technique, the ladies who work with us often report greater clarity and intuition about what is most important for them. Well this often starts as a part of the healthy hormones tool kit, Breathwork can be used in all parts of our lives where we seek to bring new habits and beliefs into.

Yoga with Katie  —

Katie is a certified Holistic Health Coach and Prana Yoga Flow teacher since 2010.

You may have heard about the physical benefits of a yoga practice (c’mon we’ve all heard of the “yoga booty”), but the power of yoga extends FAR beyond the physical! 

Yoga is a special mind, body, and spirit connection where we flow with our breath through intention as we connect with our internal source. Our breath brings the nervous system into the parasympathetic state (rest and digest!) and when we tap into our own internal power the physical outer layer of ourselves just melts away. Does that make you breathe a sigh of relief?! 

Yoga for Healthy Hormones offers an all levels transformative vinyasa yoga practice, where Katie challenges you to tune in and connect with yourself through breath and movement, and shift your perspective with intention and self love. This is where the change begins!

Have a Question?!  We’ve got you!!!

Have an unanswered question that you would like answered before enrolling in the Healthy Hormones group program?  

Below is a list of the most common questions that we have been asked.  If for some reason you don’t see your questions below or still need clarification for some reason, just email support@zestyginger.com or sign up for a 30 minute consultation with our Support Team!

 

FAQ

I keep falling off the wagon with my food and lifestyle changes. What makes the members of the Healthy Hormones group program and all of the testimonials I’ve seen so successful?

#1. Addressing Your Beliefs & Brain Chemistry

We offer a unique approach to health that discovers not only what may be holding your back physically (hello imbalanced neurotransmitters) but also how your daily thoughts and beliefs play a role in your actions and habits. The signals being sent from the brain are often overlooked in hormone health programs. This is why many women we work with have been on adrenal health supplements for years, yet they only see improvements as long as they keep taking the supplements.  You can’t out-supplement a signal from the brain!

 

 Many of the women we work with know exactly what to do for their health, but they have too much brain fog, fatigue or PMS to follow through.  And then over time they have started to lack confidence in their ability to stick to programs and habits.  We help shift your physiology to slow the addictive habits, improve energy and clear your mind. And then we use this extra clarity to dig in deeper to the loop of disempowering beliefs they may be operating on without even knowing it!

 

#2. Customized plan and testing

Test, don’t guess!  We have seen so many women with completely different symptoms and the same underlying imbalances. OR we also may have 2 group members with headaches or acne that have a very different cause!  Using functional lab work can give you a baseline and an understanding of where you are so that you can program is where you want to go.  It is hard to get anywhere without knowing where you are first.  

 

#3. Community and Accountability

We’ve both experienced going to doctor after doctor and trying to piece together a holistic health journey on your own. This path can feel incredibly lonely! We have created a place where you will be understood and heard.  Knowing that you have a community to ask questions to, a live call coming up and an accountability buddy keeps you motivated to keep going!

 

What if I am not ready? When will you be running this program again?

We want to start by asking, when WILL you be ready? Do you have a specific set of guidelines that will tell you when you are ready? If you don’t know, how long have you been saying “I will start later” and putting off your health? 

If you are committed but have something specific that interferes with this current group, we usually offer our Healthy Hormones twice a year, with a February and September start date.

Are Lab Fees and supplement costs included? How much do I need to budget?

No. Lab fees and supplements are not included in the program cost.  These fees are paid directly to the labs. Currently the DUTCH hormone panel is $250 (we extend our practitioner discount to our ladies! This is around $150 less than you will find on directlabs.com) and the neurotransmitter panel is $239. Supplement costs vary depending on your lab results. Some insurance companies or health savings accounts will help with the cost of the testing but it is up to each group member to explore that with their insurance and request reimbursement.

Is Facebook required to join?

Facebook is not required to join. BUT we do feel that the Facebook group is an amazing resource and that having a group to lean on, relate to and share with can be really instrumental in the hormone balancing process.  One of the most common comments we hear about the group is “I was just so relieved to know that I am not alone. Other people have the same complaints and are on the same journey”. We’ve even had a couple people create a new account or borrow a friend’s account in order to get all those benefits! We also suggest searching for a plugin called “Kills Newsfeed” that allows you to be in FB groups but hides the feed for you so that you don’t get sucked into hours of scrolling on Facebook!

 

I am busy. How much time do I need to dedicate to the group?

We get it!  We are all busy.  We created this program with ourselves in mind while Megan was pregnant and also had a 4 year old running around and while Dr. Alex was in residency. Watching the weekly modules may only take 20 mins up to a couple of hours while the weekly  live calls are 60-90 minutes (and yes you can watch the replay).  But the real time needed is going to be in taking action on what you learned. Some tasks are simple and require the click of a button to get a new tea, while others require time and space to contemplate how to rearrange things in your life.  Overall, the goal of the program is for you to have MORE time to yourself, and less time doing stuff that doesn’t matter!  So, who knows, maybe you will end up being less busy by the end!

 

What can I expect when I enroll in the Healthy Hormones group program?

#1. After you sign up, you will receive an email that allows you to order your own DUTCH and neurotransmitter test.  You will follow the instructions to self-order and pay the lab fees directly to the lab ($250 for DUTCH and $239 for Neurogistics) 

#2. Complete your tests from the comfort of your home (just pee on a strip!)  and mail back to the lab. (Please see FAQ for state specific guidelines such as NY, RI, MD and outside of the US and Canada)

#3. Fill out the intake forms and return to us. 

#4. And this is when the real work starts! Every week we will be addressing, questioning and tweaking a different area of your life for optimal hormone health.  Watch weekly videos, participate in weekly calls, buddy up with a partner to hold each other accountable. 

#5. Once we have received both labs and your intake form you will get a detailed personal video from us explaining how to understand your results. You will then have a 30 minute 1-on-1 follow up session with our coach Katie to ask any questions! Get access to 20+ videos on how to interpret your own tests in the future.  We want you to not only have a plan for right now, but be empowered to self test in the future to see how you are doing. 

#6.Continuously upgrade different areas of your life and watch the magic of the upward spiral.

What if I live in NY, MD, RI or outside of the US?

Neurogistics (neurotransmitter test) is not permitted to send test kits or receive samples to or from consumers in the states of New York, and Maryland due to regulations in these states. If you have an alternate address or location in a nearby state that you can receive, perform and return the kit, then you can still perform this test. Precision Analytical’s Dutch Test Kits (hormone test) is not permitted to receive samples from consumers in the states of New York, Maryland, and Rhode Island. If you have an alternate location in a nearby state, then you can perform  the test and return the kit.

Even though we would love to work with clients all over the world, we have had trouble in the past with lab work and supplements when working with clients outside of the U.S.  You are welcome to join the program but must understand that the lab work and supplement part of the program might not be available to you. Please be aware that although the labs might offer kits to your country (with extra shipping fees), you may still have a problem with the kit being retained at customs. In this case the lost cost of shipping or the lab fee is your responsibility. Purchasing supplements sometimes might also be difficult depending on your location and your country’s regulations on shipping. Please contact us for specifics of your situation.

My partner thinks we can’t afford this. What can I do?

We have lots to say on this because we’ve both dealt with this.. It helps to think about this situation  in 2 ways: from a practical standpoint and from a contextual one.

In a practical way, discussing with your significant other areas where you can cut back (less eating out, fewer Starbucks runs, canceling unneeded subscriptions) and how to make more income (babysitting, trading services in your community) can all go a long way in helping offset costs.

 But more importantly, talking about the context of spending this amount of money can go a long way.  Think about all of the money you’ve spent on supplements that didn’t work, doctors visits/labs that didn’t help, and books you’ve started to read but never finished.  If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably spent THOUSANDS of dollars with the trial-and-error approach. It’s time to approach the problem systematically and with a plan!  Also we have monthly payment plans to break it up for you (All payments must be made for you to continue to have lifetime access to the program.)

What is the guarantee / refund policy?

What if when I test my hormones and neurotransmitters there is nothing imbalanced?  We are willing to make the guarantee that if we don’t find one meaningful imbalance on your labs, we’ll give you a full refund of the program.  

Otherwise, refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis within 30 days of purchase and before you receive your customized protocol. Refunds will be considered for Action Takers only, meaning that you watched the videos, participated in the Facebook group and attended the live calls and still did not feel that the program was a good fit.

What if I am on a medication such as an SSRI, can I still test my neurotransmitters?

Yes you can! Testing can be done while on all medications and we ask that you don’t change anything up without working with your doctor.  The powerful thing about neurotransmitter testing is that what is happening can be easily extrapolated in relation to what you are taking. For example, if your serotonin is low while on an SSRI, then we know that it would be even lower without!

What if I am on birth control?

That’s no problem! We will be able to see exactly how your body is responding to your current form of birth control (hormones and neurotransmitters) and you can decide if it is working well for you!

For those of you hoping to transition off of your birth control, we are excited that you are looking into doing this work!  Supporting the body upfront can allow you to transition off supplemental hormones more gracefully and without a bunch of symptoms.

I am pregnant or breastfeeding, can I still join?

We do not suggest testing your hormones during pregnancy.  If you are breastfeeding, we suggest waiting to test your hormone levels until after 6 months postpartum (after getting cleared by your doctor!) and we can help you make the appropriate changes.

What if I have digestion issues, can this still help me?

Yes absolutely. But it’s a little tricky! Here’s the catch-22: it’s hard to fix your gut unless you’ve worked on your hormones & adrenals…but you can’t completely restore adrenal health until the gut issues have been resolved. Arg! That’s not helpful. Stay with us though! We choose to do things in a way that sets us up for success as much as possible.  

What we have found to be the most successful while working with women is to address adrenal and hormonal health FIRST. While things may not fully improve until the gut has also been healed, trying to heal the gut while the adrenals are completely overloaded and dysfunctional leads to much worse outcomes and failed treatments. A common scenario is having gut infections return soon after someone completes an herbal or antibiotic protocol because they don’t have the reserve to keep the infection away on their own.  

Many of our graduates find that they already see drastic improvements in how they feel on a daily basis just after implementing a hormone balancing protocol…and all that hard work that they put into their hormones helps them address gut issues faster and in a more permanent way down the road. We have a gut health coach as a part of our team that you can choose to work with, if needed ,after graduating from the Healthy Hormones Group Program.

Is there any support available if I have questions or get stuck?

Yes!  We are here for you. As a group member of Healthy Hormones there are multiple ways to get support and feedback. 

#1. Your Live Group Coaching Calls

This is your chance to get clarifications from Dr. Alex and Megan!  We will gather questions ahead of time if you can’t make it live and send it out in a replay.  Or, join us live and get on the spot coaching and your questions answered.  This is one of our favorite aspects of Healthy Hormones and how we connect as a community.

#2. 30 Minute 1-on-1 Session with Our Coach Katie & protocol email support

Have questions about your DUTCH and neurotransmitter results that weren’t answered in your customized report and video?  Each new group member will receive a 30 minute session with one of our coaches. And send us an email at any time with any important lab work related questions.  

#3. Private FB Group 

This is a safe space for you to connect with other like-minded women on the same path.  Share your weekly wins and your struggles and have your questions answered by our team. 

#4. Our Support Team

Any technical issues about your program (login, billing etc) can be addressed by our support team, Rose and Alexis by emailing support@zestyginger.com
