"I sought Kate's help after suffering from irregular, painful periods since coming off the pill. I has been struggling with over exercising and under nourishing my body for years, all of which had started to affect my health. Kate listened to my concerns and what I wanted to achieve and was so knowledgable and understanding every step of the way. The meal plan and recipes she gave me were not only easy but delicious and I loved eating intuitively and nourishing my body with good food. Thanks to Kate I started eating far more than I had before, fell in love with yoga, meditation and walking - all of the things I never felt were "intense" enough to make a difference. Despite what I had been previously told by a fertility specialist, I fell pregnant within a couple of months of implementing Kate's recommendations. Not only did I feel the best I ever had prior to falling pregnant (despite falling pregnant while also organising my wedding I was the least stressed I had ever been), I'm sure the only reason I was able to fall pregnant was thanks to Kate rebalancing my hormones, my body and my mindset. Even now as a new mum I still love exercising, eating and living the way Kate taught me as I truly believe it changed my life for the better! Kate has gone above and beyond to also answer my questions during my pregnancy and since I had my daughter. She has been an excellent source of knowledge and support, and an absolute pleasure to deal with :)" - Pip, mother of Willow
"I still remember the day I got my period back. After 7 years of not having a period, it was one of the best feelings in the world. Finally after years of doctors, pills, blood tests, scans I finally felt like ‘it's ok, everything is going to be alright’. Four months prior to this day I had my first Skype consultation with Kate. She was a breath of fresh air and speaking to her it just felt ‘right'. Not the feeling I had when seeing doctors, who would quickly write me a prescription for some sort of hormonal pill and rush me out the door. None of them working, only making the problem worse. Kate got straight to it and addressed the root cause of why my period had stopped. Mine was years of restrictive eating, over exercising and stress. Kate gave me a simple plan follow and I did it diligently! With in a few months I could already feel my body coming into balance. I’m now 21 weeks pregnant. Conceived naturally, which doctors told me would never happen. Without a doubt I would not be in the position I am today without Kate’s wealth of knowledge, down to earth approach, honesty and great sense of humour! I wish her all the best in her bright future x" - Renae

What is Hypothalamic Amenorrhea?
Hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is what is known as a “diagnosis of exclusion”. Which basically means:
“We have ruled out all other reasons for your period being MIA and are a little bit baffled, so it looks like you have HA”
However, there are some key markers of HA, including:
- Menstrual dysfunction - meaning you haven't had a period for at least 3 months
- Low energy availability - AKA there is a history (either long or short) of eating too little and/or exercising too much
- Compromised bone density
What Causes Hypothalamic Amenorrhea?
The key causes of HA are:
- Under-eating (this can be in terms of calories and/or nutrients)
- Over-exercising (the exact amount of “too much” will be different for everyone)
- Low body fat percentage (if you have abs, you will probably need to say goodbye to get your period back. Sorry. I’ve been there – reproductive health is so much more important than having a washboard stomach. Trust me)
- Excess stress
- Rapid weight loss (no, you don't necessarily have to be underweight to have HA)
- The oral contraceptive pill
Healing HA involves simultaneously addressing ALL of these factors.
Why Should I Care If I Have HA?
Your period should be viewed as a window into your overall health. If it is wonky, or absent, then this is a huge red flag that your health is suffering. These are the well-established consequences of hypothalamic amenorrhea:
- Moodiness and irritability
- Inability to sleep (did someone say night sweats and frequent waking?)
- Increased risk of early-onset osteoporosis
- Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
- Increased risk of dementia
But I LOVE my abs and the body I have worked hard for!
You’re not alone. Many women, just like you, are also struggling with amenorrhea. I was once one of those women, too. I'm Kate and here's my story...
Who knows when my body image issues started?! I never used to consider them as “issues”.
I had always had a very athletic physique, and this also included having a six-pack (and not the beer variety. I'm talking "abs of steel"). Throughout high-school and in my twenties, I had always been more active than most. And I always made sure I ate "healthily".
At age 29, my abs were still defined, and I was still getting compliments about my “ideal body”.
Before you think I’m an absolute narcissist and all “look at me with my chiseled abs and perfect grades”, let me get to my point. I had worked hard to get these results…at a significant cost…
I eventually found out I had hypothalamic amenorrhea. Basically, my brain had stopped communicating to my lady-garden, production of female hormones had slowed and my menstrual cycle (and fertility) disappeared. This was not ideal, considering my hubby and I wanted to start a family.
Why did this happen to me?
I was under-eating and over-exercising, my body fat was too low, I was stressing like a mad woman, and I had been on The Pill for 10 years. Are you nodding your head “YES! That’s me!” yet?
The treatment for this was simple, or so it seemed in theory:
Eat more. Exercise less. Stress less. Get off the pill.
While I knew this info for a while, it took me 2 years to actually do something about it. I thought I could just throw herbs and supplements at it, which clearly was not enough, as it was not addressing the root problem.
Having long been complimented on my physique, I struggled at first when I realised I had to let go of my ripped body. And then I gave it some thought and realised:
THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN A SIX-PACK!
It was at this point that I decided to go all-in and make the changes necessary for getting my period, and my fertility, back on track. Everything I did, including the mistakes I made, are detailed in this amazing e-course.
I've tried EVERYTHING! I don't think this will help!
Oh my goodness, I hear you sister! Check out the crazy list of things I spent THOUSANDS of dollars on….
- Ayurvedic massage
- Chinese Medicine
- Raw food
- Cooked food
- More carbs
- More fat
- More protein
- More food in general

- Sleeping in a pitch black room – I card-boarded up my windows to block out the light
- Crystal healing
And that's not even the full story! Some of these worked, many didn't.

“I first came across Kate Callaghan on Facebook, which led me to her website. After reading about Kate's personal journey dealing with amenorrhea, I knew I had finally found someone who would understand what I was experiencing and who could help me get my cycle back.
I've always been active and enjoyed athletics and lifting weights. In 2014, I started training with a new personal trainer whose sole mandate was to help me see my abs. I embarked on a new exercise program that involved intense, hour-long weight training sessions 2-3 times a week that left me completely drained in addition to 2-3 weekly CrossFit sessions. To fast track my fat loss, I was prescribed a zero carb diet,which I meticulously followed for months. And it worked! My diet and exercise program gave me visible abs, chiseled arms, and sub 10% body fat measurements. I was proud of my achievement and continued with my intense workout schedule and restrictive diet in order to maintain my lean physique.
Fours months into my new exercise and diet program, however, my period stopped. I wasn't too concerned initially. My trainer told me that my body would "reset" and my period would come back just like that. A few more months passed but my body didn't reset like I was told it would. I sought the advice of my family doctor and gynaecologist, both of whom told me I just needed to gain weight.
I knew I had to put on some body fat to get back my cycle, but for someone who was so obsessed about maintaining a lean physique, it wasn't as straight forward as just stuffing my face with donuts and ice cream. My Aunt Flow had been on hiatus for 1 year when I started working with Kate in September 2015. Our initial session revolved around discussions about my weekly training program and my daily diet, and immediately Kate was able to pinpoint the issues and explain the problem and what she believed was contributing to my missing cycle. I appreciated Kate's direct yet sensitive, never dismissive mannerism.
It took one month of following Kate's advice and a 5kg weight gain for my cycle to come back. I was pleasantly surprised that my cycle came back so quickly, but I did have to do everything Kate advised me to do. I went from 5-6 weekly sessions of intense weight training and CrossFit metcons to leisurely walks and bi-weekly personal training sessions that barely had me breaking a sweat. My diet was also completely revamped. I was encouraged to eat carbs (lots of it) and a good amount of healthy fats, give up caffeine, and take certain supplements.
I've gradually gone back to lifting weights and doing CrossFit style work outs as it's what I love to do. The difference now is that I'm more mindful of the energy in / energy out balance, careful of not breaking the delicate equilibrium. Kate has taught me the importance of listening to my body and convinced me that visible abs and toned arms are not worth sacrificing my health for, which, after all, is why I like being physically active and eating well” - Regina
"I am proud to say I am both a patient and colleague (fellow holistic dietitian) to this amazing lady. Despite my knowledge in this area, it was not until I received Kate's empowering advice and guidance that I was able to truly cure my HA. After not having a regular period for over 4 years, I am now a healthy, happy weight with a wonderfully functioning fertile lady garden. Even if you think you "know it all" when it comes to HA. There is so much more to overcoming it than the cold hard facts/info. This is what this program is about. It is comprehensive, supportive, empowering and invaluable. I highly recommend this to anyone who is struggling to find their fertility and restore their monthly cycle" - Nat Bourke, http://www.healthbywholefoods.com.au

"Contacting Kate was one of the best decisions I made for my health. After having amenorrhea for several years and seeing numerous doctors to no avail, l was hopeful that she could help since this was her speciality. After the initial consultation, I immediately decided I wanted to see her regularly. Kate gave me hope that there was a cure to my condition. The doctors I saw in the past made me feel as if I was at fault for my health issues and would only offer prescriptions and hormone treatments, which made me feel awful. Kate was very understanding and offered advice and natural therapies that worked with my lifestyle. After only several months of consulting with her, my period came back and it has been regular ever since. I also continue to use some of her therapies, such as certain yoga poses for stress relief and a couple vitamins/nutrient recommendations, since they continue to help me maintain my health. I would highly encourage any woman with hormonal or amenorrhea issues to consult with her so they can start on their own path of healing" – Jessica
"When I first met Kate, I'd been off the pill for over a year and hadn't had a period. I was losing hope. Kate's nutritional advice and emotional support gave me the confidence to really believe that I could fall pregnant naturally. Kate not only showed me how to modify the way I nourished my body but importantly how to reframe my negative thought patterns. I loved working with Kate and was sad when I didn't need to see her anymore. I'm now the very proud mother of a gorgeous and healthy 9 month old baby girl!" - Elizabeth, Mother of Daisy

"I can't tell you how many women I have praised and recommended Kate to. Her work began changing my life even before I worked with her formally. I first read her story over two years ago and it helped to open to eyes to how my under eating, over exercising, and over stressing were affecting my body. I slowly began to make changes, gaining some weight, easing up on the exercise, and starting to feel better. I then sought Kate out after I had gone off the pill (who knew it was so bad for you! it's so the norm for women these days!) and still hadn't gone my period back after 4 months. Given my history and that I had been on the pill for 7 years, that wasn't so surprising. But within 3 months of working with Kate last July, I had gotten my first natural period in 7 years. I was nourishing myself more and seeing the results. The time between my periods slowly diminished and we began trying to have children in November. And by March of this year, I had fallen pregnant. I'm currently 15 weeks pregnant and so grateful for all that I have learned from Kate. Kate's perspective on nutrition is holistic (duh, I guess). She provides you with ways to nourish your body and to nourish your soul (simple relaxing techniques, etc.). I think most importantly, she teaches to you to listen to yourself. I had been ignoring what my body was telling me for so many years, doing only what I thought I was *supposed* to be doing. Now, I have learned to listen when my body says it needs more of this or that or if it needs to just rest. Important lessons for all but especially for me as I was trying to fall pregnant. I could probably go on and on but I'll stop here. Thank you, Kate! :)" - Carly
"Soon after I got married I decided to finally come off the pill after 14 years on it! I was wanting to fall pregnant in the next month or two but it did not happen like that. My period did not return for months after coming off the pill. I saw a few doctors who wanted me to either wait a year or put me on medication to bring back my period. I knew there had to be another way. After a good Google search I came across Kate's blog. I immediately contacted Kate and set up a Skype consult. I haven't looked back. Kate gave me an in-depth look into why my body was responding the way it was and what I can do about it. Well after a few months of listening to Kate's advice and changing my lifestyle habits, I finally got my period back! And not long after that I fell pregnant. With twins! Naturally! It was wonderful to know that my body could do what it was meant to with just a few minor tweaks like eating better and exercise rather than medical intervention" – Ashleigh

Because I want you to spend a week with me, and the other women in the course, and check out the material to really decide if you’re ready to commit to using it and making change. If you decide you’re not ready to commit to the healing journey, that the information is not what you expected, that the course is not going to help you…just let me know and I’ll return your moolah! xx

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes – we definitely tackle many aspects of eating disorders and disordered eating, however I also strongly advise that you work with a psychologist, psychiatrist or counsellor to ensure you are provided with all of the medical support you require.
Absolutely not. While I do encourage you to choose mostly whole-food sources of nourishment, this does not necessarily mean “paleo”. In the insanely delicious cookbook that you receive, you’ll find all sorts of meals. Grains, legumes, dairy….they’re all in there, if you choose to have them. There are even a few vegetarian meals. It’s all about eating in a way that works for you and your body, and not adhering to any diet “rules” or dogma
100% online, gorgeous! I’ll be doing the program with you so I can support you each and every step of the way, and provide reassurance and motivation when you need it most.
Each week, I will send you (straight to your inbox) a mini-textbook to fill your brain with knowledge and inspiration. You can also expect to receive a workbook each week, to take action with your new-found knowledge and inspiration….because action is what creates change.
We will also have a weekly live Q&A webinar where we will discuss the hot topics of the week. This will be recorded, just in case you can’t make it, or want to listen again.
Heck no, babe! You can join in from anywhere in the world and, depending on where everyone is from when we are running the program, I’ll try my best to shuffle the weekly live Q&A times around so no one misses out (if this means me getting up at 5AM to chat with you – I’ll do it!)
While I really wish I could guarantee that everyone will get their period back, unfortunately I am not the period fairy (I can’t just wave my magic wand and poof – period restored). Every woman is different, and it is really hard to predict when your cycle will return. What I do know, though, is that women who go “all in” with the strategies that I suggest tend to get their period back sooner than those who “um and ah” about it, and continue to do what they are currently doing…which clearly isn’t working.
I DON'T HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS - I'M READY TO GET STARTED

"I came to Kate after almost 20 years on the Pill thanks to a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in my teenage years. I was starting to think about wanting a family though and I was keen to get normal periods back. Unfortunately I got a whole pile of silence. I had one or two periods over a year and I knew my body was not getting what it needed to be normal. I knew Kate had experienced a lack of periods too so I felt she would understand what I was going through. Working with Kate was literally life changing. From the very first session she took the time to really understand my situation and gave me insights that no one else had ever mentioned to me before. She helped me to slowly understand what my body and my unique situation needed to heal and the difference in my health was immense from the very first day. I was gifted regular periods from the first month, and now I'm pregnant with my first child. I cannot rave enough about Kate and her approach to nutrition, stress, health and life in general" - Josie
"I got in contact with Kate because, after being on and off the pill for a couple of years and losing a lot of weight when I was 17 dancing full-time, my period disappeared for 3 years. I thought that I was super healthy, as I never ate anything bad. I would go to the gym everyday for an hour and go hard every time. I also didn't have much body fat. The thing is even though I did all of this I still thought I was always bloated and that my legs were huge pretty much thought I was bigger than I was.
When I had my first Skype session with Kate I connected with her instantly and she knew what she was talking about. I felt so comfortable talking to her about anything and everything. After my first session, I had to make changes to my diet and exercise routine, take more vitamins and follow a few different tricks of the trade to get it back. Kate told me "dont expect to get it back within the first couple of months - its going to take a while because you haven't had it in so long."
With these few changes there were times that I would email kate freaking out saying "I'm so bloated!! I'm this I'm that" and she was always there with an answer of why and how to fix it and stop hating on my body. This was very hard for me to do as being a dancer I've always grown up thinking I had to be super skinny to get jobs. But I knew I had to just suck it up and do it! Follow everything she told me to do to a T. I also didnt realise how much stress I was putting myself under as I had from a career that was so dramatic and not knowing when the next job was coming and just being a downward spiral. That's when I decided I had to change career paths and I haven't looked back. Kate helped me realise that this was one of my main triggers for not getting my period back as well as my diet and exercise and supported me 110% to make these changes.
With these changes I got the biggest surprise of my life! I GOT MY PERIOD!!! Within a month of seeing Kate I got it back!!!
I actually couldn't believe how quickly it happened. I had complete faith in Kate and knew that everything i was doing had to be done for the best results but I didnt expect it so soon!
Not only now do I have a healthier relationship with my body again and not afraid to eat certain foods, I can now (well eventually) be able to have babies!! Which I was so worried I wouldn't be able to. Its been 4 months now and my period is regular!
I can not thank you enough kate for getting me to this stage! I know I'm still young but I'm so happy I started now instead of thinking it was normal to be so thin and not getting my period. I feel like I have made a great friend also. I know if I ever have a problem again (a mini freak out in my case haha) I can email you and you will always be there for me.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!" - Ally (now mother of one gorgeous little boy!!)
