Hormone Masterclass for Teens
A masterclass for Teens to Take Control of their Bodies and Minds
By Dr. Kali MacIsaac, HBSc, ND

Before you end up in my office, let’s chat…
Too many women in their 30s and 40s sit in my office, struggling to make a baby or having put up with decades of period problems and hormonal symptoms, and say these words:
“Why didn’t they teach us this in high school?”
This needs to stop with the next generation.
Help your teen navigate period problems and hormonal concerns, and equip them with the tools they need to future-proof their fertility.
This is a 3-hour program…
that introduces your teen to many aspects of their reproductive and hormonal health that they didn’t learn in health class. It includes extensive information on the signs of a healthy period, troubleshooting tips to bring to their physician if they experience period problems, help to navigate their contraceptive options for today, and diet and lifestyle advice for setting up the nutritional and hormonal milieu for a better hormone balance today and in the future.
The program is broken down into six 20-30 minute, highly digestible sections for you and your teen to watch and learn at your own pace (together or separately).
Help your teen get the information they, frankly, deserve to know about their hormonal health reproductive health and future fertility. Many women in my practice have been struggling with their hormones since their teenage years, and only get the help they need when they find out they’re struggling to conceive – decades later. The convention of prescribing the birth control pill, and/or an antidepressant, for the classic symptoms of irregular or painful cycles, heavy bleeding, absent menses, severe bloating, IBS, mood disturbances related to the cycle, and basically anything “women’s health” related has done our generation the disservice of ignoring the body’s signs of underlying imbalance and masking our symptoms. Our teens deserve better.
In this powerful 6-part series, you and your teen will learn the cardinal signs of a healthy period, how to navigate period problems with your teen’s physician, their contraceptive options for today, and how to focus their diet and lifestyle to future-proof their fertility.
A little bit about me
Dr. Kali MacIsaac is a board certified naturopathic physician, who has been working with women to optimize their hormonal health and fertility since 2013. With a clinical focus on infertility and pregnancy support, she has too often helped a patient understand what’s “not normal” about their periods, only to have them exclaim – “why didn’t anyone teach me this in middle school?”
She has distilled down her work with over 10,000 women trying to make babies over the last 10 years to give you the tools that you and your teen need to navigate their reproductive health.
In this powerful program, Dr. K shares with you and your teen the knowledge you need to identify and investigate hormonal and period problems today so that you can prevent them from sitting in her office in another decade, struggling with these same symptoms or their fertility.
Teenagers are incredibly likely to experience symptoms of hormonal imbalance in the first decade after the onset of menarche (the first period). This is partly due to the fact that the immature reproductive system is learning to establish a regular ovulatory pattern – impacting the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, and your teens’ experience of their cycle. Irregular periods, painful or heavy/flooding menses, and lots of unwanted premenstrual symptoms (like acne, mood swings, insomnia, and digestive upset) that come along with monthly menstruation are often alarming for teens – but their concerns often go unaddressed, or worse – treated by a blanket Rx for the birth control pill.
In this groundbreaking 6 part webinar, Dr. Kali MacIsaac will dive deep into what it means to have a healthy period, the importance of regular ovulation for overall health, and how you can help your teen navigate their hormonal and reproductive health options today and in the future.
Set your teen up for their future hormonal and reproductive success, by giving them the knowledge they need today.
Periods aren’t just periods. They’re an expression of your teen’s underlying health. It is incredibly important to accurately assess and treat menstruation issues for our teens so that we can set them up for healthy hormone balance across their lifespan.
