The IAFHH Mission

To empower women’s health professionals with mastery in functional hormone health so that collectively, we can transform how female bodies receive healthcare all over the world.

Our Story

What started as a passion for reproductive health care, we have since evolved to become a source of empowerment for women’s health professionals all over the world. 

Today, we stand as the voice of authority on the most up-to-date education in functional hormone health and provide practitioners with innovative, compassionate, and reliable solutions to women’s health issues.

Not all education for women’s health professionals is created equal! 

The International Association for Functional Hormone Health takes an innovative approach to educate our students. 

We combine the best of cutting-edge research on hormone health with ample mentorship on how to apply this information to a variety of specialties. 

Whether you come from a background in nutrition, herbalism, fertility awareness, prenatal care, or clinical settings, IAFHH will provide you with revolutionary approaches to improving the health of your female clients and patients.
