About Nourish & Flourish

Your body is speaking.
Are you listening?

Maria plantsIf you’re a woman between the ages of 40-60 and are confused about:

  • Weight gain that’s been creeping up
  • Why you’re frequently fatigued
  • Increasingly worse PMS
  • Perimenopause and why your body is acting so differently
  • Menopause and how to make it (almost) effortless
  • Hormone balance and what it means for you
  • How to eat for long term health
  • Living deliciously gluten free
  • How to have beautiful skin after 40

I can help you. Because I’ve been there and I’m passionate about helping women enjoy health, beauty and contentment at every age.

Health is so much more than your annual exam where you’re told “this is what it’s like to get older” or handed a prescription with no guidance on the lifestyle and nutrition changes you need in order to feel vital.

Are you wondering if there’s a better way?—I’m here to tell you there is.

I’m Maria Claps and I’m an expert on women’s changing bodies (aka perimenopause and menopause) because I’ve graduated from it and earned an honorary degree from the School of Hard Knocks. Yup, I had terrible PMS and it wasn’t until I figured out that it was a hormone imbalance that I found relief. I’ve also come out on the other side of the “big change” (aka menopause) so I can help you with that too.

Besides lifelong study and personal experience, I’m also a certified health coach, functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner and a Gottfried Institute-trained natural hormone expert. I’m also currently studying with the lovely Jenny Burrell, out of the UK, in a program called “3rd Age Women’s Health”.

Oh, I’m also a mom to four grown children. So by default, you can call me a life coach too. What I really mean, is that I get it.

Maria smoothieWherever you are in your health at the moment, there is always room for improvement. I believe one of the reasons we’ve become so collectively unhealthy is because we’ve stopped listening to our bodies. Basic literacy of the female hormonal systems is our birthright.

That’s where I come in. I help women balance their hormones and listen to their bodies so they can live life on their terms.

After all, what good is the wisdom you’ve acquired and the sense of knowing you own, if you don’t also have the health you need in order to enjoy your next act.

Balance your hormones, Love your life.
