Women's Holistic Hormone Health Practitioner
Professional Certification Course
If you are ready to learn how to put the health of you, your friends, family, and clients back into YOUR hands...
This course is for YOU.
The only Internationally Recognized Practitioner Course and a Brand-New Professional Modality Created by Jennifer. She created this course because, in her own words:
“I struggled for years because I did not have the information I needed to understand what was going on in my body. This left me at the mercy of whomever I saw for treatment, which invariably ended up with a suggestion for a prescription that did nothing to treat the root cause of hormonal dysregulation. I will share my story with you in the first webinar.
I spent years searching for answers. I put the pieces together and finally understood what was the root cause of my suffering. It had a name and a cause; a why. Which meant, in my case, there was a way through. I could finally take actionable steps to harmonize my body and mind and balance my hormones.
If you, or a woman you know, has been struggling for years with hormonal imbalances and uncomfortable symptoms, you are not alone. And now, you are in the right place to learn how to understand the ‘why and how’ of these imbalances, and what to do to correct them.”
This is one of the best written courses
I’ve ever laid eyes on
“Jennifer, honestly, this is one of the best written courses I’ve ever laid eyes on. As someone whose spent a lot of time in the social media space and seen a lot of people teaching, WHHHP stands apart. Additionally, what stands apart is your pure heart and desire to get this information out into the world. I notice you are quick to share helpful details and truly want us to learn and grow. Your essence is exactly what I’d always hoped for in a teacher, thank you for being you.”

How often do we meet?This varies depending on your needs.Once we determine what your first actionable steps are we determine how much time is appropriate between session 1 to session 2; then session 2 to session 3; then session 3 to session 4. The reason is because each woman is different so there is no 1 size fits all time between sessions.
Are lab tests a requirement for The Well Woman Program?No. Lab tests are absolutely NOT a requirement for the Program. Once we get to know each other, we will discuss if you need a test or not. It is always entirely up to you and 100% optional.
What lab testing is offered?We will test whatever we determine you need. Here are a few examples: The DUTCH Test—Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones—is an industry-leading option that can provides a clear picture of your hormonal levels. The hormones that can be tested are Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHT, DHEA, and Cortisol. These tests are unique in that they also measure the metabolites of these hormones and test for OATS (Organic Acid Test). A blood draw is currently the only way to measure Thyroid Hormones. Thyroid Hormones are crucial to your overall cellular metabolism. Testing only for TSH is outdated. To gain a full picture of thyroid health we like to see: TSH + FreeT3 + FreeT4 + ReverseT3. As well as thyroid antibodies: TPO + TG. These crucial hormones often get overlooked with the exception of TSH. These tests can be done by your Physician. If your physician will not order these tests. I can and we will set you up at a LabCorp near you. Urine test for Intestinal Permeability AKA Leaky Gut Lactulose/Mannitol Test The small intestine is crucial for providing your body and brain with the nutrients it needs to function properly. Another role it plays is keeping things out of the bloodstream. This is accomplished by something called “tight junctions” between the IECs (intestinal epithelial cells). When these tight junctions become loosened improperly digested food, as well as toxins go directly into the bloodstream. Your immune system responds. Left untreated you will experience inflammation and possibly autoimmune disorders.
Is lab testing included in the Well Woman Program pricing?No. However, I think every woman should have access to these tests, therefore I do not upcharge from my Practitioner price.
Do you suggest supplements?Yes. You can count on me recommending supplements with dosages that actually do something. We start slowly, with 1 or 2, so we know what works best for you. I will thoroughly explain why I am suggesting a supplement for you. We address the root cause then supplement to support your flourishing health. As a Well Woman Program member you will receive a 20% discount off the retail price.
Do you suggest bio-identical hormone replacement?Yes. I do not prescribe, as I am not a Physician. We start slowly, with low dosages, so we know what works best for you. I will thoroughly explain why I am suggesting a bioidentical hormone for you. As a Well Woman Program member you will receive a 20% discount off the retail price. We cannot hormone replace our way out of a lifestyle that does not support our wellbeing. Therefore, we address the root cause then utilize bio-identical hormones to support your flourishing health.
Do you treat Hashimoto's?Yes. The autoimmune disorder Hashimoto's is one of my specialties. As well as hypothyroid, of which 1 in 8 women will develop at some point in their life, particularly during perimenopause.
How much does The Well Woman Program cost?The 30 minute complimentary call is free. 4 - 75 minute sessions, a total of 5 hours 1:1 time is $550. 1-60 minute session is $125. For latest pricing plans visit www.jenniferfoege.com/plans-pricing
What if I require more than the complimentary call and the four 75-minute sessions?We will determine this together in session #4.If continued support is needed, you will have it!
