Clear Medicine Wellness (The Hormone Diet Bootcamp)
With now over 1000 successfully transformed bootcampers, we are proud to say that The Hormone Diet Bootcamp is one of the top wellness programs in Canada. In FIVE short weeks you will build the foundation for better hormonal health. This group program is based on Dr. Turner ND’s The Hormone Diet and The Supercharged Hormone Diet books.
Dr. Turner ND’s passion and fascination about the interconnectedness of hormones and the number of bodily functions they influence fostered the motivation behind her first book, The Hormone Diet. She found her own issues of hormonal imbalance and early experiences in clinical practice swiftly demonstrated the standard treatment for a seemingly uncomplicated hormonal issue such as low metabolism/thyroid hormone (a.k.a subclinical hypothyroidism, currently estimated to impact as many as 4 out of 13) or full-blown hypothyroidism—via simply replacing thyroid hormone—was by no means the complete solution. In fact, it was frighteningly inadequate in many cases.
Today, at Clear Medicine, we rarely rush to treat thyroid deficiency right away. Instead we start by working to detoxify our patient’s liver and digestive system that influences the production of active thyroid hormone; to balance stress hormones with good sleep and stress management; to level out blood sugar and insulin; to replenish the nutrients needed to make essential hormones; and to address hormone imbalance, which impact vitality and wellness.

The Hormone Diet Bootcamp: Curb Cravings, Beat Belly Fat and Feel Younger Longer
And so from Dr. Turner ND’s bestselling books, the 5-Week Hormone Diet Bootcamp was born. This interactive, engaging and effective group approach has allowed hundreds of participants to successfully determine why they haven’t been able to beat those stubborn pounds and, most importantly, attain total health. It outlines a strategy that ensures hard work in the gym and a healthy kitchen is rewarded in the way you’ve always hoped they would be.
The mere mention of “hormones” can conjure images of menopausal women or nefarious food additives. Indeed, many patients seek to address these specific concerns. But this program is definitely not only for those with hormonal issues. It is not even strictly directed at people seeking to lose weight. We have used this approach to successfully treat thousands of patients with a broad spectrum of health goals. Some needed to gain much-needed muscle. Others wanted healthier looking skin. Still, others wanted to get rid of headaches, improve their sleep, ease their digestion, increase their energy, improve their fertility or sharpen their memory.
While many of us believe we can get healthy by losing weight. The truth is we must be healthy to lose weight. When you complete the steps outlined in this 5-week plan, you will optimize your hormonal balance, lose unwanted fat and restore your health in the process. This process is for everyone because, unlike so many other “diet” programs these days, The Hormone Diet Bootcamp offers a complete wellness plan that addresses every cause of health imbalance because it promotes vital bodily functions from head to toe, inside and out.
