What Our Graduates Are Saying

“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.”

What Our Graduates Are Saying

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions


WHEN WILL THE NEXT CLASS BE OPENING?

We currently do not have a specific date for the opening of the next class for the IAFHH Functional Hormone Specialist Certification Program. We recently launched a beta-test of the self-paced version, and the enrolled students will be participating in the program for a duration of 6 months. Our priority at the moment is to gather feedback from these beta-test students, which will help us tailor the program further. Once we have received and reviewed their feedback, we will determine when we can open the doors to the self-paced course to the public.

If you would like to stay updated with the latest details regarding the program and be notified when the doors open, we encourage you to join our waitlist. Additionally, if you have any specific inquiries or require further information, please feel free to reach out to us via email at info@iafhh.com.

what is the time commitment for the program?

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.

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).

In total, you can likely expect to commit 4-6 hours per week on the program, depending upon your learning pace.

Do i have to be a health professional to enroll?

In general, the program is delivered to meet both beginner and advanced-level individuals, and we have had students join us from many different fields and backgrounds including medicine, nutrition, chiropractic, herbalism, fertility awareness education, birth work, health coaching, and even just aspiring learners.

Although, please note that our course is quite complex, so 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. However, if you do not, that doesn't have to be a limitation. We have intentionally broken down the material as comprehensively as possible and also provide additional support and mentorship options if needed to support your study and retention of the material. If you feel confident in your research & study abilities and understanding of hormonal health physiology, we are sure you will do just fine.

If you have additional questions on if you're a good fit for our program, please contact us at info@IAFHH.com

Will i earn a certification after completing the program?

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.

Will i feel confident in creating client protocols by the end of this program?

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.

what is your refund policy?

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 offer as much support as possible to you as you navigate the program materials.

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.

how long do i get access to the program?

All fully graduated students of the IAFHH Functional Hormone Specialist Certification Program will receive lifetime access to the course materials, including any future upgrades and additions. This means that once you have successfully completed the program, you will have unrestricted access to the course materials for as long as the program is available.

To ensure an optimal learning experience and timely completion of the course, we have implemented a 12-month completion period. As long as you complete the course within this timeframe, you will not be subject to any additional fees to regain access to the materials.

However, if the 12-month period elapses and you have not yet completed the course, your access to the program materials will be revoked. In such cases, to regain access and continue your progress in the course, you will need to pay a reinstatement fee.

We strongly encourage all students to diligently work towards completing the program within the 12-month timeframe to avoid any interruptions in accessing the course materials. Our aim is to support your learning journey and provide ongoing access to valuable resources.
