“I absolutely loved this program! The live calls and community was so helpful to have through the program and Ashe's lectures are packed full of information. Ashe also provides vast amounts of downloadable resources, client handouts, and amazing guest lectures. I highly recommend this course to any practitioner looking to master women's health and hormone metabolism!”
“Ashe was fantastic as a mentor and instructor. She fostered a sense of community and an collaborative learning environment. As an NTP and RWS1 practitioner, I wanted to round out my knowlege and support my female clients with hormone dysregulation. The depth of knowlege I gained from this program is exactly what I was looking for and I'm eager to apply it in my practice!”
NTP, IC-FHS, RWS1
“This program changed my life. I came into the IAFHH FHS Certification Program with basic knowledge of functional women's health, but I didn't even know how little I knew about my own body until the class started. Ashe is incredibly kind, brilliant, and warm; and this makes for a space that is inviting, open, and where we can grow in whatever direction we most need to be the best practitioners we can be. I can't imagine my life or my practice without the knowledge and experience I gained in this program - from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Ashe, and I can't recommend this program enough.”
Before becoming an IC-FHS, I knew the bare bones of women's health. After going through the program, I feel more equipped to take better care of my female clients. IAFHH marries science with practicality beautifully. I was blown away by what I learned and was able to walk away for my practice + personal life. The IAFHH community is incredible and I am so glad to be a part of it. It epitomizes women supporting women. I highly recommend this program. You won't be disappointment by Ashe and IAFHH. You can tell she put her heart and soul into it!
“I'm a fertility awareness educator particularly interested in helping women to use their cycle charts to inform their health decisions. I joined this program because I wanted to learn more about nutrition and gut health, and how that relates to female hormones. Ashe's course was a wonderful supplement to my previous education. I've learned information that has helped to improve my own health as well as family members'. The sense of community that quickly developed among the group members was also really nice. I now have a network of colleagues to talk to and collaborate with in the area of reproductive health. Overall, the experience was a positive one and I look forward to modifying and improving my own work with clients in the area of health and nutrition.”

In this presentation, you’ll learn how to use the power of a healthy microbiome to improve your client's chances of conception and reduce the risk of loss.
English is a Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition & a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who specializes in helping couples conceive the baby of their dreams in the least invasive way possible. She uses the combination of in-depth lab work & the power of targeted nutrition to help couples get down to the root cause of their imbalances & restore their innate ability to conceive a healthy baby.
In this presentation we will outline how the loss of estrogen and progesterone affect female physiology, particularly as it pertains to the gut microbiome and metabolic homeostasis. We will then outline what needs to be addressed in a woman’s health before initiating hormone restoration, and then we will wrap-up with an exploration of the plethora of BHRT options available to midlife women and the considerations they need to make before starting.
Maria, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin, an NTP Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition, are plainspoken friends and practitioners who share a passion for women's health, especially women's health at midlife. As both are themselves menopausal, they've refined the art and science of thriving as a midlife woman based on both clinical and personal experience. They combine individualized nutrition and lifestyle changes tailored to midlife women's needs with mindset coaching, lab testing and hormone replacement therapy education to help women thrive so that they can stop or prevent their health from spinning out of control.
Anemia is the most common blood disorder in the US, with over 3 million in the US suffering. Anemia is defined as a lack of healthy red blood cells, which distribute oxygen to cells and tissues. With hundreds of types of anemias, there are about a half dozen common forms that can be categorized 3 ways; issues with production, loss or destruction. Anemia, the nutrients and processes involved, and hormones are tightly interwoven. We will be discussing the many ways in which they can be affected back and forth in their symbiotic relationship.

“I've really enjoyed studying for and completing the IAFHH FHS certification program. I run an online women's hormone health clinic and having successfully helped hundreds of women return to vibrant health using a functional, holistic approach, I can tell you that Ashe's program stands on solid academic and practical foundations. The course is well-structured, easy to comprehend and build upon and the material comes with a lot of research references. In my opinion, this last feature is one that can keep on giving, if you are the kind of student who knows how to go back to the research references and glean practical gems from them too! I would suggest this course to anyone in functional medicine who is truly interested in optimising their clients hormonal health.”
“Ashe's course has provided me with an in depth foundation on women's hormonal health that is going to directly inform my work as a nutritional therapist, labor, and post partum doula. This class goes beyond nutrition basics and covers many ways to support women based on their unique individual needs.”
FNTP, IC-FHS, Doula
“Working with Ashe in the IAFHH FHS Certification Program was one of my best decisions. I had been searching for a program that provides a deeper dive into women's hormones and period health and this program came at exactly the right time. The material was thorough, yet easy to get through. The live calls were extremely beneficial. And the program, itself, felt manageable and not overwhelming. My favorite part, however, has been the friendships formed and the support of like-minded colleagues.”
NTP, PHC, IC-FHS
“Before I joined the IAFHH Functional Hormone Specialist Certification program, I could give you an overview of women's hormones but I didn't feel confident to go in depth with clients on their hormonal issues. Since finishing the course, I feel like my knowledge base has grown so much and I'm exciting to use what I've learned in helping women optimize their hormones and their fertility through functional nutrition.”
MSW, FNTP, IC-FHS
NOTE: DOORS FOR THE MARCH CLASS ARE CLOSED!
Class starts Saturday March 5th, 2023 at 3 PM EST. From there, we will have 12 live calls that will be hosted each week on Sundays at 3 PM CDT, minus the two, two-week breaks in-between. To learn more, download the full class syllabus here.
All calls will be recorded and you will have lifetime access to both your class's mentorship calls as well as the guest lectures (including all past and future guest lectures if you join the IAFHH Learning Community membership!)
However, we do recommend attending the live calls as they are a wonderful opportunity for you to engage with the class and have all of your questions answered in real time.
Each module contains roughly 3-5 lessons, and each lesson ranges between 30-70 minutes. On average, each module contains between 3-5 hours of lecture material as well as transcripts, worksheets, and additional resources. You will have two full weeks to complete each module before the next one is delivered.
Previous students have expressed that it took them roughly 3-5 hours per week to get through the material (depending upon their level of experience & learning speed).
Each live call is roughly 75-90 minutes, and there will be two, two-week breaks in-between the program where there will be no call or material delivered. These breaks are in place to allow you more time to go through the course materials and receive support as needed.
In total, you can likely expect to commit 4-6 hours per week on the program, depending upon your learning pace.
This will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We encourage you to apply to enroll, explain your situation and if you are not accepted into the program for any reason, you will be notified and provided a full-refund (if applicable).
In general, the program is delivered to meet both beginner and advanced-level individuals, but is geared toward health professionals who have experience in nutrition, medicine, herbalism, fertility awareness, and/or doulas/midwives/birth keepers.
With that said, having some previous background in nutrition, anatomy & physiology, and general women's health topics will help you to better comprehend the depth of the program.
If you have additional questions on if you're a good fit for our program, please contact us at info@IAFHH.com
Upon completion you will receive a "certificate of completion" with your name and hours of continuing education earned in addition to a graduate badge that you can display on your website for proof of participation and good-standing.
In addition, you will be granted permission to use the official designation: IAFHH Certified Functional Hormone Specialist (IC-FHS) alongside your current credentials and/or scope of practice.
If you are an NTP or FNTP, upon completion you will receive 24 CEUs approved through the Nutritional Therapy Association.
This program is designed to provide you with not only the information & research about women's reproductive and hormonal health topics, but also the tools you need to be able to apply what you learn in your practice so you can help your clients achieve real & lasting results.
Throughout the program we outline how certain hormone imbalances & reproductive health conditions connect back to the foundations of health - nutrition, digestion, blood sugar, detoxification, etc. so that you can clearly understand how to support your client's health concerns from a functional, holistic approach.
This program is NOT going to provide you with "cookie-cutter" protocols to use in your practice. Rather, we are training you on how to take a step back and approach your client's health from the big-picture-perspective through evaluating their nutrition, lifestyle habits and functional test results.
The mentorship calls will include a combination of real-life examples, case studies, and breakout rooms to help you develop your skills and think critically about these topics as a group.
You will also receive peer support and direct guidance from Ashe during the mentorship calls and within the private Facebook community to help ensure your success and confidence along the way.
Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds. We are entirely confident in this program and the results our students have achieved. If you are all in and fully participate in the program, we are confident that you too will be able to achieve your goals.
We understand that this program requires both time and financial commitment, so we want you to know that we do our best to provide as much support as possible to you throughout the program by addressing all of your questions during the group calls and in the private FB group.
Most importantly, we want each enrollee to be 100% ready to change their lives and businesses, and that starts with fully believing, committing, and investing in yourself and your success. Enrolling in this program is the first step.
All graduates will have continual access to the IAFHH material including any additions and upgrades into the future.
You will receive lifetime access to your cohort's live group mentorship calls, as well as the guest expert lectures.
If you choose to join the IAFHH Learning Community membership upon completion, you will also receive access to all previous and future guest lectures, in addition to quarterly practitioner support calls to provide you with even more support and guidance as you build and refine your practice.
As we continue to revise and expand the program to include even more research and practitioner resources, the value of our program increases, therefore, tuition prices may have increased from the previous round and will continue to increase into the future with new rounds we host.
If the enrollment period is open, upon completing the enrollment application and submitting your tuition payment, you will receive an email notification of your enrollment status.
After you enroll, you can join the private IAFHH Facebook community to introduce yourself and meet other members of the community while you wait for the program to begin.
If the enrollment period is not open yet, we encourage you to join the waitlist and we will notify you once doors officially open so you can secure your spot in the program. Spaces will be limited.
