Health Coach Spotlight
As they say, “It takes a village.”
Lisa and I are so grateful to the amazing health coaches below—in addition to our wonderful team of expert endorsers/supporters, the women below went above and beyond to help make The Essential Thyroid Cookbook a best seller in no less than five categories.
We’re immensely appreciative of not only all of the blogging, social media updates, newsletters, and word of mouth sharing that they did for us, but also—and just as importantly—the amazing work they’re doing in the world.
We can’t wait for you to know about them, too!
Check out their areas of expertise, sign up for their newsletters, and follow them on social media.
Maria Claps of Nourish and Flourish Health is a health coach with functional training in women’s hormones. Her practice focuses on women’s transitions of perimenopause and menopause.
Maria decided to become a health coach after an expensive and unhelpful visit at a well-known functional medicine practice in NYC that did nothing to address the root of her adrenal and sex hormone imbalance, which heralded the beginning of her problematic perimenopause.
She then enrolled in a health coaching certification program and did a deep dive into learning everything about hormones from a functional and holistic perspective. She knew there had to be more to feeling good again than standard medical advice. Maria now coaches women worldwide on balancing their hormones and being healthy at every stage of life and also mentors other health coaches who want to work in the area of women’s hormones.
