The Align & Thrive academy
Your roadmap to hormone harmony, pain free menstrual cycles, confidence, optimised fertility for now or the future & a happier perimenopause transition
Ladies did you know you have a 5th vital sign?
Yes, your menstrual cycle is a vital sign, just like your pulse, temperature, respiration rate, and blood pressure. And it provides you with essential information about your health including your fertility. Declared as the 5th vital sign in December 2015 and again in 2019 by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Are you sitting up and listening to what your period is telling you about the state of your overall health & vitality? Wow have we come a long way since I was a teenager. Now we are asking the questions we should be asking. What is the root cause of my problem? What steps can I take to fix it. Not just throwing a pill in our face which only masks the issue but does not cure.
“Your body will be your bestest friend so pay her the respect she deserves and she will look after you in return”

I reached out to Michelle and soon joined her 3 month Happy Hormones & Happy weight programme because I was looking for support with the fibroids, my fertility and my energy level, as I was exhausted very easily. What I really enjoyed about working with Michelle was that she made me understand the root cause of my problem. She helped me change my mindset about nutrition and having a healthy lifestyle. The shift/result that happened because of working with Michelle was that I could manage my energy levels better throughout the day and at the end of the programme I got pregnant.
I approached Michelle because I was desperately needing help with my Fertility, Tender Breasts and sleep problems. The Dutch Hormone testing process was really easy and I found the information extremely motivating and gave me a lot of answers on where to focus on to improve my symptoms and work on my fertility. As a result of working with Michelle I learnt to not give up and stay motivated. I have also seen great improvements with my digestion and sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to join for the full 3 months?
I absolutely recommend 3 months as this is the minimum time needed to see results. You will see improvements throughout the programme. But when we look at the time needed for an egg to mature enough to be released is 90 days. My wish for all my clients is for them to succeed in their fertility and happy hormones journey which is why it is a 90 day programme. A nutritional power hour is available for those women who just need some support with one particular area to get started.
Can you guarantee results?
As with most other Nutritionists , I cannot guarantee results with any of my clients. The majority of my clients have had wonderful results, including pregnancies, reduced period pain, cravings, reduced weight, and managed anxiety. All from making small shifts around food and mindset. It is my goal to provide you with a road map based on the information you provide me but due to the individuality of each client I can’t guarantee a specific outcome. I am here to be your coach and cheerleader but it is you who must make the choices and implement this information to your life. But I will be here supporting you and educating you each step of the way.
Do you give refunds once the programme is started?
Unfortunately I do not give refunds once you have started on the programme.
I am still a little unsure if this programme is right for me?
It is always a little daunting committing to something for you. I also know from my own personal fertility journey how hard it can be when you have tried and tried without success. I would love to have a no obligation chat and talk through any questions you may have. I can explain the how and why’ s and have a straight up conversation about how this programme is here to educate you and empower you to know and work with the power of your 5th vital sign, your period.
Do I need to do hormonal testing?
There are plenty of ways to see results without testing, which I will support you with in my programmes. . If it’s been a chronic long term concern or of urgency then I recommend testing to really save time and be specific on your starting point and areas of particular concern.
I have irregular or missing periods so can your programme help me?
Our period is our 5th vital sign. If you are experiencing these issues my programmes will empower you and educate you. By focusing on healing your body, removing inflammation and educating you on your period and what influences it both positively and negatively we can start your journey of happy periods.
I have experienced miscarriages. Can your programme help me?
I know first hand the emotional stress and grief of such losses. There are a number of reasons women experience miscarriages and one of the reasons I developed this programme was to educate and help women like myself who have experienced such a loss. I can support you to balance hormones, reduce inflammation, reduce stress, and understand the importance of mindset which are some of the areas which need to be addressed after miscarriage. And more importantly a community of women who will support you.
I am still unsure which nutrition program is most suitable for me?
I absolutely understand how scary and confusing it can be at first. I advise you to book a free no obligation chat where I can talk you through each programme, duration, benefits and suitability to your time and budget.

No, there will be lots of no fuss easy recipes to follow. The main focus is quality ingredients that nourish the body back to optimum health.

It is of course your own responsibility to ensure all questions and information are answered honestly to ensure full safety.
I have tried other Nutrition programmes. How is this different?

You will Feel empowered, educated and motivated with an understanding of your next step.
