Praise from Our Clients …
Even though I am half a world away in the Philippines, I enjoyed working with the Wise and Well team to improve my gut and hormone balance.
They are very forthcoming, friendly, approachable and easy to work with. I’ve already referred my peri-menopausal and menopausal friends who’ve started working with them too. Everyone in the world needs to work on their health!
I first met with Kristin not having a strong desire to make a lifestyle change. After just a few hours of education and a couple documentary recommendations she sparked a passion within me that I didn’t know was possible. My first concerns were pertaining to a family history of heart disease and diabetes which I believed I was destined to develop. After speaking with Kristin + Maria, they informed me that my genes were reversible and so I dove right in.
I’m about 10 weeks into this lifestyle change and I’ve officially lost 28 lbs, not to mention I convinced my boyfriend to join in and he has lost 37 lbs. I feel more awake, more motivated, healthier and more positive all around.
But my favorite part about meeting with Kristin + Maria is that for the first time in my life, I genuinely feel informed and educated about food and nutrition and not only how it can harm my body, but how it can heal it.
I was initially hesitant to work with Kristin and Maria because I was actually afraid to find out what I was doing wrong. But at the same time, I knew I needed to make improvements. Not knowing if I was on the right path with menopause, HRT and nutrition was what was bothering me the most. There is so much information out there and most of it doesn’t apply to women in menopause.
I loved the group calls and meeting other like- minded women & learning from their questions. My 1:1 session was awesome too. I’m now more aware of my body, I’ve upped my walking and weight training, added protein, and most importantly, I felt comfortable discussing HRT options w/my doctor now that I know and fully understand what my options are and what I can expect from HRT.
This 6 month program is for women who want no BS abd simply want to improve their health and age better. Maria and Kristin have done the research and are honest. I loved my experience!
I was hesitant to start this program because I wondered if it was too time consuming and whether I would really engage. I am happy to report that I did and as a result I’ve lost 14 pounds and have vastly better energy levels. I had some unhealthy habits that needed mending and the continuous improvement over immediate results is what got me there. What I loved about working with Kristin and Maria is the amount of education they put into each woman that works with them. This program changes lives.
Working with Wise + Well is the best thing I have done for my health as a post menopausal woman. Everything else I was trying made me feel worse, and I didn’t know what else to do. Before I joined Wise + Well, my GI troubles and sleep disturbance were interfering with life, and I could not lose weight. I had joint pain and lacked enough energy to maintain workouts. Based on what I learned in the program, I lost 30 pounds, and 5 months later, I’ve kept it off. I sleep through the night again, feel happy and energetic, and my joints are pain-free. I feel years younger, and I’m encouraged about my future. If you’re on the fence, I have these words: Do it. Don’t wait another day. You’re worth it, and Wise and Well WILL help you. They will. Kristin and Maria are smart, informed, networked, available, and compassionate. They know how to help midlife women.
I was trying to figure out why I was low energy and gaining weight in my midsection. Because I’d followed Maria and Kristin for a while on social media, I did not have any hesitations about working with them. A couple of things I realized straight out of the gate was that I don’t eat enough protein, I eat too many carbs and “healthy junk food” and that I can’t fix my hormones on my own! Early on in my work with them, I’ve gained more energy and have learned the best way to eat to support my hormones. I’ve also learned A LOT about hormone therapy, which Maria and Kristin are very much in favor of. However, I’ve also learned that I need to get certain things in order first, before jumping right into hormone therapy. Kristin and Maria are honest and tell it like it is.
At first I wondered if working with Maria + Kristin in their program was going to be worth it given my age – but deep down I wanted better for myself. I started BHRT with no knowledge about hormones and did not know the importance of getting my “house” in order first and that is exactly what they taught me : that it is important to get certain aspects of health (such as gut health and nutrition) dialed in before going on BHRT. The way they educated me was THOROUGH! These gals know a heck of a lot more about what a mid-life woman needs more than any MD I’ve ever talked to! One of my favorite parts about working with them is how available they are. I loved the coaching calls best of all.
When I started in the Mastering Midlife Mayhem program, my clothes weren’t fitting. This was a sign that something was off and needed to change if I was going to age with my health intact. I have learned so much from these two women who have walked this path and are living their best life. There is a better way to navigate through menopause and Wise and Well has a successful roadmap. Information and knowledge will be abundantly supplied but we have to be willing to change and work on it. If you are ready for a different way and want to secure your future health, these are the gals for you.
I just had a baby, so perhaps not the ideal client of Maria and Kristin of Wise + Well, but I knew that perimenopause is right around the corner for me and I wanted to be prepared and that is why I decided to work with Kristin and Maria.
Maria and Kristin are amazing. I was so concerned about the cost of working with them and was worried I would feel like I’ve wasted money in the end (as I have with every other program I’ve done) but that was definitely not the case with them.
They are kind, knowdgeable, have a good sense of humor and tell it to you straight. All of their advice is research backed and evidence based. Their program, which is called Mastering Midlife Mayhem, is laid out and planned very well and is extremely informative on its own. But the really amazing part (& what makes this worth more than the cost) is the personalization and being able to ask them anything and they (themselves!) will respond, quickly!- with all your answers, answers that makes sense!
It’s incredible!!! I dare say I’ve never had anyone spend this much time helping me with my health! Maria, Kristin, & their program really are spectacular. And if you are hesitant because of the cost, know that it is worth it…your health is definitely worth it.
My fear in getting started with Wise + Well was that their program would be like all the others ones I’ve tried where I spent a chunk of money and didn’t really learn much or feel better. I am happy to say that was not the case here! Any woman suffering from hormone fluctuations, excess weight or in need of specifics on where to get started on healing is who I would recommend for this program. You will get testing, plenty of coaching and a plan specific for you. You will understand the role diet (and specifically protein) plays in your health and how our needs in midlife are different than the generic health advice that is out there. You will also get supplement and exercise advice as well – again, all tailored to you.
When working with Kristin and Maria, it is easy to see how educated, informative and caring they are when it comes to helping women understand their
bodies. The investment was worth it!
This is me…I’m post menopausal, 56 years old, on HRT, feeling groovy, my hair and skin feel amazing, libido is great, positive attitude, love my red meat, life is good for this chick …the Wise and Well Way is the only way to age!!
“I genuinely feel informed and educated about food and nutrition and not only how it can harm my body, but how it can heal it.”
” I feel great for the first time in ages”
“…I HIGHLY recommend letting Kristin + Maria change your life…”
I always love working with these ladies because they have such a great understanding of nutrition and hormones plus an extensive knowledge of the DUTCH test.
They are always looking to learn more so they can educate their clients about the best and healthiest ways to reach their goals by understanding the root cause. They definitely go the extra mile and it shows! They are fantastic!

These gals have a unique perspective regarding holistic women’s care. They bring the honesty and compassion of a certified hormone coach with the powerful understanding of human nutrition and how it heals the body.
Any class they offer is a must and I send my patients daily.

These gals are extremely passionate about their area of expertise, hormones and women’s health, which is just one of the reasons they are always on top of the latest research. This enables them to educate clients (and audience) with high quality information presented with excellent care and true meaningful support.

I am a functional medicine trained health coach and yet I turned to Maria for her expert guidance when my own gut health test, the GI-Map came back. Being a health coach, I am on point when coaching others but when it comes to my own health, I need another set of eyes and someone who can see things for what they really are.
Maria is one of the most educated, intelligent and knowledgeable coaches I know in our space so I knew she was the one for me. Maria lovingly guided me through what was occurring for me and gave me a very actionable plan.
She brings to the table not only her knowledge but years of experience in helping hundreds of women over the years and not only speaks from that but from her own health journey as well, which I appreciate more than she knows. I would recommend Maria to anyone looking to get to the root of their DIS-ease in a heartbeat as she not only talks the talk, but one who really walks the talk as well.
These gals are a rarity in the nutrition and hormone health community—they speak to a largely dismissed and undermined group of women with compassion, understanding, sympathy, and unabashed directness, conviction, and humor that’s easy to connect with and difficult to find.
Maria has been my “back-up coach” on numerous occasions and will continue to be—that’s how much I trust her.

These gals are my go-to for anything related to hormones. They are on top of the latest research and always sharing valuable information. I trust them so much that I sent my own mother to her (and myself) to read our DUTCH results. They have the capability of making things very easy to understand even if you don’t have experience with hormones.
Since I don’t work with clients with hormone issues very often anymore I always refer to them and know that I can trust my clients will get what they need.

I was a vegetarian for over 30 years and continually feeling lousy. Not fully understanding the “you are what you eat and absorb” concept I kept going to doctors looking for answers as to what was wrong with me. Why had I been feeling so crummy for so long? Not getting answers until Kristin + Maria entered my life. They explained the gut health connection to me and asked if I would ever be interested in trying an elimination diet. Knowing that this would mean I would probably have to eat meat, I said no for many reasons, the least of which was eating animal protein. When I realized I wasn’t going to get any better without changing some habits, I asked these ladies to guide me through an elimination program for 30 days. Their extensive knowledge of nutrition, supplements, the human body, and the elimination diet I followed is indispensable. Kristin + Maria supplied me with the information and knowledge I needed to turn my life around. Not only am I happily eating animal protein after more than 30 years, but I have a greater understanding of what my body needs to thrive AND I feel great for the first time in ages. Thank you Kristin + Maria for teaching, supporting, and guiding me through this, you have truly changed my life and that of my family’s!
Working with Kristin + Maria has been a life changing experience. At first I was unsure about starting the process at all. However after the first meeting, I went home and immediately cleared out my pantry. I was horrified at how I was treating my body by what I was putting in it. I have just turned 30 years old and was having multiple coffees a day just to get by and sleeping pills just to rest. I lived off of carbs because I thought, with a high metabolism, that’s what I needed to sustain my fast paced job on my feet. It turns out I had become pre diabetic and was torturing my body. Since working with Kristin + Maria for the past six weeks I have had SEVERAL “aha moments.” My skin has cleared up from acne I have had since age 13. My wedding ring is now loose from a massive reduction of inflammation. I have natural energy throughout the day. I no longer feel like death directly after every meal, and I am sustained and satisfied for hours. I am more positive with the people around me in life, aka I don’t get “hangry” anymore. I sleep throughout the night instead of tossing and turning. I’ve lost weight without trying. I walked past a Cinnabon in the mall and for the first time in 30 years, I was genuinely grossed out by the smell, instead of craving and buying the treat.
I am so happy I found these ladies, they have truly saved me from a lifetime of health issues. I HIGHLY recommend letting Kristin + Maria change your life as well.
I first met with Kristin not having a strong desire to make a lifestyle change. After just a few hours of education and a couple documentary recommendations she sparked a passion within me that I didn’t know was possible. My first concerns were pertaining to a family history of heart disease and diabetes which I believed I was destined to develop. After speaking with Kristin + Maria, they informed me that my genes were reversible and so I dove right in. I’m about 10 weeks into this lifestyle change and I’ve officially lost 28 lbs, not to mention I convinced my boyfriend to join in and he has lost 37 lbs. I feel more awake, more motivated, healthier and more positive all around. But my favorite part about meeting with Kristin + Maria is that for the first time in my life, I genuinely feel informed and educated about food and nutrition and not only how it can harm my body, but how it can heal it.
After years of mis-managed health, I had the opportunity to work with Kristin + Maria. They looked at me with a whole new sense of optimism and totality. When I had lost faith in ever getting “better,” these ladies found a way to change that. Through their suggestions of not only supplements but lifestyle changes, I started getting the best sleep OF MY LIFE. After so many years, they finally set me on a path to true wellness – and I’m forever grateful for their compassionate nature getting me to where I want to be.
Kristin + Maria are dedicated to caring about your whole health, especially through food. Not only have they inspired me to make healthier choices, but they also have a plethora of knowledge that they share through teaching and guidance – we even exchange recipes and ingredients between each other which has helped me learn so much. Just switching even simple things made a vast difference in my overall health and life, and none of it would have happened without Kristin + Maria!
After just 3 weeks, my rings fit, I have more energy, I’m not falling asleep at 3 in the afternoon, I lost weight, my pants fit, my hot flashes have decreased, and I’m sleeping better!! Prior to this program, I had gained weight and I felt incapable of taking steps to lose it. The Wise+Well ladies have empowered me and now I know I can do it!
I felt like crap. I didn’t want to admit that my issues with anxiety and pain were due to my food. I feel better than I have in a long time and will keep working with Kristin + Maria.
Kristin + Maria helped give me food back!! Because of major gut issues, I had such a limited diet before working with these ladies. They taught me better mealtime habits, gave me tools to get rid of my bloating, and shared a ton of great recipes. Now my food options are wide open and I no longer have discomfort. My favorites parts of working with Kristin + Maria are that they were always easy to contact for big or small things, and gave me such optimism that they could help me … and they did!
