There are 100 million women worldwide that are struggling with hormone imbalance.

Can you help them?

Weight gain. Low mood. Low libido. Hot flashes. PMS.  

These are just some of the symptoms women are experiencing daily and they can’t figure out what’s wrong. They’re miserable and they want answers.

I know, because I was one of them.

At 42, I went into perimenopause and by age 47, I was fully menopausal. My highly acclaimed NYC holistic doctor wanted to put me on a truckload of supplements, hormones, and a risky bone health drug.

Yes, that was the treatment from a holistic doctor.

No, thank you.

I knew there had to be a better way, so I studied nonstop and found the answers to my problems.

Fast forward several years, I now work with hundreds of women (with the same struggles I had) to help them balance their hormones and live a happy & healthy life. I can teach you to do the same thing.

Are you…

• Tired of turning away clients that have complex health issues?

• Unsure about what steps to take so your clients get results?

• Ready to stand out in the crowded wellness industry and get raving fans?

• Struggling with your own hormone imbalance problems?


How amazing it would feel if one of these women struggling to find answers contacted you and you were able to confidently help her. 

Now you can with…

Hi, I’m Maria Claps, a certified health coach, with advanced training in functional medicine hormone balance for women. As a hormone expert, I work with women all over the world to help them balance their hormones.

My training includes:

  • Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching Program

  • Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner Certification Program

  • The Hormone Cure Practitioner Program with Dr. Sara Gottfried

  • 3rd Age Women’s Health Certification

  • Nutritious Life Certification with Keri Glassman, RD

  • MTHFR, Methylation and Biochemistry Course from The Metabolic Healing Institute 
  • Menopause Method Course for Physicians with Dr. Daved Rosensweet

  • Mentorship with hormone scholar, Dr. Lindsey Berkson

Like you, I went to a typical health coaching school, got my certificate, but quickly realized that my knowledge was lacking. I immediately went on to continue my education, learned everything about hormones, and the DUTCH test. As a result, I’ve sky-rocketed my business.

BUT, you don’t have to do what I did…spend thousands of dollars and hours of your life learning alllllll things women’s hormones. 

All you need is The Complete DUTCH Test + Hormone Balance Mentorship program.

I’ve done the research, worked with hundreds of clients, and put in the time. Now I’m teaching you everything I know in an easy-to-understand program, so that you can be successful and have a waitlist practice, too!

Learning how to interpret the DUTCH test and help my clients with their hormones was the one piece my private practice was missing.

Maria’s course was detailed and thorough. The course is laid out succinctly and the interpretation lessons were invaluable.

Maria’s experience and thorough knowledge of the topic were evident.

My practice is thriving with women over 40 who are looking to improve their hormone health and I feel confident that I can support them now after taking this course.

I'm so busy, how time consuming is this program?

This program will take about 30-40 minutes per week of your time…not bad, right? I know how busy you are and designed the course to be easy to do and actually FINISH. That’s because the videos are broken down into short, consumable topics. There are no hour long videos that you have to sit through. I REALLY want you to excel at this and made sure that the program is something that you will finish. I don’t want it sitting idle in your hard drive!

I really just want to learn all I can about the DUTCH hormone test. Should I take this program with its emphasis on midlife women?

This program is about 60% instruction on how to interpret the DUTCH complete hormone test and about 40% on the hormonal changes and needs of women at midlife. So the answer is yes—you will get a thorough education in how to interpret the DUTCH complete hormone test. 

What are the benefits of certification? Can I get continuing education credits for taking this program?

Certification benefits include:

  • You get to call yourself a certified Midlife Hormone Mastery coach and use the logo on your website and marketing materials
  • You are eligible to receive client referrals from me
  • You will be on a practitioner list on my website
  • You are eligible for marketing and business opportunities to work with me as my business needs expand
  • I am currently seeking CEU credits from the Nutritional Therapy Association, the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Program although no determination has been made yet


How long do I have access to the program?

You have access to the course forever (as long as I maintain my Kartra account). If you would like forever access, you will be able to download the videos and handouts.

What if I need ongoing mentorship after the program?

You will have access to the Facebook group for community support for a year. 

Also, Maria is available for 1:1 session if you would like ongoing sessions. 

Is this a course in hormone therapy?

This is not a complete course in hormone therapy. Although the scientific basis and benefits of bio-identical hormone therapy for menopausal women is covered in one of the modules, it is not a comprehensive course in dosing BHRT. This is one of the most important parts of this program. 

Do I get any 1:1 time with you if I purchase this course?

This is a group course. There is no 1: 1 time with me, but I will be active and helpful in our FB group. If you are doing a DUTCH test, we will review your results a customized video interpretation. However, mentorship students are able to purchase a single session with me at a discount off my regular fee.

I do not live in the USA, can I still do the course?
Absolutely…all you need is a good internet connection.
What is the DUTCH test?
The DUTCH test stands for “dried urine total complete hormones” and its the premier test I use for helping to determine hormone levels in women. The test also has several nutritional and other markers. I cover this all in the course.
Do I need to buy a DUTCH test to participate in this course?

No, you do not. But it is a great way to learn on yourself while going through the course. About 70% of past participants bought a DUTCH test so they could learn on themselves. If you do buy a test and submit your samples to the lab according to the timeline, Maria will interpret your test and send you a customized video interpretation of your test. You will also be able to ask questions in the Facebook group. 

What is the the lab fee for the DUTCH test?

You will pay $200 for the test. On the DUTCH lab website, the test is listed for $399, so this is an incredible discount that is available ONLY for students of this course.

If I've already done a DUTCH test, will you be able to interpret it in this course for me?

Yes, you will receive a personalized video interpretation of your DUTCH test.

Can I do a DUTCH test if I do not live in the USA?

Yes, you can. Shipping will likely cost you a little bit more, but the lab can ship the test almost anywhere in the world. Also, because the sample is biologically stable for 2 weeks, you can easily mail it back to the lab. It doesn’t require ice packs or any special packaging. Depending on what the postal system in your country is like, you may want to choose expedited shipping.

I am a health coach, and thus not licensed. Will I be able to offer the DUTCH test to my clients after completing this course?

The lab has the final say in who gets to have an account with them. However, depending on your status, you will likely either be granted a vendor account or a direct account. I discuss this thoroughly in the course and also guide you through the process of setting up your account with the lab, if you so choose to. This course is about the DUTCH test but also very much about hormone balance. You will learn a great deal about hormones even if you decide not to pursue your own account with the lab.

What are protocol sheets?
They are professionally designed, information packed, but concise sheets I have created on each of the different hormone imbalances. They contain lifestyle, nutritional and supplement suggestions. You can use them with your clients and add your own branding.
Can you assure me that my clients and I will have balanced hormones after this course?

I’m not saying that anyone will be perfectly hormonally balanced in 12 weeks. Balancing hormones takes time. For some it can take weeks, for others it can take months and for others, up to a year or more. But with this course your journey of understanding the amazing role that hormones play in your life will begin, and even if it takes longer than you’d like, you will always have the information and guidance that you need to improve your health and the health of your clients at the body’s natural pace.

What is the Facebook group like?

It’s a great place to ask questions, whether they are business or clinical questions. It’s also a great place to chat and collaborate with your fellow colleagues.

If I post my results in the Facebook group, will you be able to give me advice on my results?

No, I won’t be able to give  specific advice on results, even in the Facebook group, without a health history intake form on you. I will, however, answer general questions, as may others who have already gone through the course and are knowledgable about the test.

Do you offer a refund?

While we don’t offer refunds, we are committed to helping you get the most out of this program. We will be there to answer all of your questions inside of our group and my team will help you work through any issues you might be having. Over 60 people have taken this program and as far as we know (and we do ask!) nobody has been unhappy with it. In fact, it has skyrocketed many students businesses.

I would highly recommend DUTCH testing for Wellness Pros  to anyone wanting to learn how to interpret the DUTCH test.  

This course  is carefully formatted so that it prevents you from going into overwhelm, which is a common problem in online learning. Maria has a no-nonsense approach and is at the same time very approachable. No question is silly and everything gets answered. This was a very enjoyable and highly informative course.

One main thing I appreciated was that Maria lays out the explanations of everything she teaches in this course in a simplified but detailed format. She encourages the students to embrace the scientific terms so that they can continue their research and knowledge.  Everything about this course was great. I can’t think of a single way it could’ve been better. And to top it off, Maria’s natural and easy going personality made my experience even more enjoyable.

I highly recommend the Hormone Balancing course taught by Maria Claps.   The course was an excellent introduction to the DUTCH test and how to use it not only for myself, but in my health coaching practice.

Maria’s course does an excellent job of combining how to balance hormones and interpret the DUTCH test.  The class was well paced and the information was presented in an easy to understand format.  The length of the instructional videos was easy to do in one sitting and the learning was perfectly paced.

Maria makes herself accessible to her students for questions and has an excellent Facebook group for her students interaction and questions.She is very knowledgeable and shares this knowledge generously both during the course and after.  

I have referred back to the course  many times for both myself and clients, so it was well worth my investment.

I really enjoyed the hormone balancing course by Maria Claps. It was thorough on all counts and surpassed my expectations. The information provided shed light on the topic of hormonal balance and served as a good, solid introduction on how to read the DUTCH test. The forms provided are easy to understand and implement with clients.  Furthermore, the pace of the course was comfortable and the length of the videos makes learning easy. 

The FaceBook group provides great support. Maria is a wonderful teacher, super helpful and accessible. She will answer all questions you have, and if she doesn’t have the answer, she’ll find it for you.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the course, and can see myself implementing the information for my personal hormonal health, and the hormonal health of my clients. After taking this course, I no longer feel intimidated about this topic, and definitely see myself using the information time and time again in the future.

I appreciate Maria’s knowledge of hormones and how she presents the material in this course. I liked the interaction & availability w/ Maria & the fact that she was available to answer individual questions was very helpful. And the content was very interesting. I feel I learned a lot and I like that I can go back & reference the course material whenever I need to. This course is a great value and I highly recommend it if you want to learn about the DUTCH test and hormone balance.

I liked the simplicity of how the program was put together. The course is easy to navigate and I like that it can be done in my own time. I have always read about you doing the Dutch test and I’m so thankful that you put this course together to teach other people about it. I like how Maria gave us the whole coaching process from start to end and how to use this new info to improve our health coaching businesses. 

I liked her way of teaching and all the extra tips she  gave along the way to make us succesful. Doing this course helped  me to understand my own struggle with hormones, which was invaluable.

I never thought I had a detox problem, but this showed me where I need to start working on my own health.
