The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap™ is a premium, proven, and proprietary 6-step program that helps you identify and address the root causes of YOUR PCOS symptoms so you can finally gain control over your PCOS symptoms in just 6 weeks and maintain your success for a lifetime.
Before I tell you about this life-changing program, let's talk about who it's really for...
You've been diagnosed with PCOS and you are tired of feeling like you're the boss of your life in every area BUT your hormones. You value information and need to understand the WHY in order to make lasting changes, but you just don't have time to do the research yourself. Your medical team has been less than helpful when it comes to helping you truly understand your PCOS and even less helpful in giving you acceptable solutions. You're willing to make some changes and put in the work... but it has to fit into YOUR lifestyle and you need to see results in order to stick with it.
You're in the right place. I'm going to share with you how The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap will give you the knowledge, tools, and support you need on your journey to lifelong, personalized PCOS management.
I've taken everything that I've learned from helping thousands of women with PCOS learn how to identify and address their root causes to improve their symptoms and channeled it into a step-by-step framework that not only teaches you the WHY behind your PCOS symptoms but also tells you HOW to improve them.
The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap is the ONLY program of its kind that…
1. Helps you identify and address YOUR root causes of PCOS
2. Is taught by a licensed integrative registered dietitian
3. Is not a restrictive diet that makes you cut out all your favorite foods or count calories or macros
4. Is a comprehensive, whole-body approach to PCOS, not just focused on fertility or weight
5. Is based on real scientific evidence about what works for PCOS
So if you’re finally ready to take control of your PCOS symptoms without a restrictive diet, medications, or sketchy supplements...
Learn what's really driving your PCOS symptoms like irregular periods, acne, facial hair, hair loss, fatigue, and weight gain. Find out why treating your symptoms like a game of whack-a-mole or slapping a bandaid like the pill on them doesn't work in the long run. Only by addressing the root causes can you finally gain control over your PCOS symptoms.
To understand HOW to treat your PCOS symptoms, you must first understand the WHY behind the symptoms.
75-90% of women with PCOS have some degree of insulin resistance. Find out why this makes PCOS symptoms worse and why you won't ovulate or lose weight until you get your insulin resistance under control.
How to find out if insulin resistance is a problem for YOU and what to do about it.
In a vicious cycle, PCOS itself creates inflammation and inflammation makes PCOS worse.
What exactly IS inflammation and where does it come from? Why it's so important to address in PCOS.
You may not have realized that those pesky GI symptoms you experience regularly are actually linked to your PCOS. But if your digestion is not on point, your PCOS symptoms are going to be worse.
What's the connection between PCOS and the gut... and what to do about it.
You may already know that androgens (male hormones) such as testosterone are responsible for many of your PCOS symptoms. But did you know that testosterone is not the only hormone affected by PCOS?
Fully understand what the key hormones involved in PCOS are, how to find out which ones may be problems for YOU, and what to do about them

"Taking the Course was one of the best things I have invested in for my fertility journey. You learn so much about ways to fuel your body correctly, tests and real facts about PCOS, and it’s packed with useful handouts that make implementing everything so much easier. By following Melissa’s methods, I was able to ovulate naturally within the first few weeks."
"Taking the PCOS Root Cause Roadmap helped me understand my symptoms, as well as real applicable ways to deal with them. I saw results within the first month (got a period for the first time in 6 months!), and since then have had another 4 periods all with confirmed ovulation! Which is HUGE for someone who only had one period the year before and has been trying to conceive! Melissa’s no BS approach to PCOS is what sold me. She’s blunt, straightforward, and doesn’t coddle you! Basically, if you put in the work and follow the recommendations she so thoughtfully lays out for you, you can most certainly expect to see results. "
"Three weeks in, my cycle is down to 28 days vs 38 days previously. I’m so glad I took the plunge and decided to enroll! And now crossing my fingers I’ll see that double line on a pregnancy stick! Melissa’s no BS approach to PCOS is what sold me. She’s blunt, straightforward, and doesn’t coddle you! Basically, if you put in the work and follow the recommendations she so thoughtfully lays out for you, you can most certainly expect to see results. "
"I’ve had my first normal cycle after one month of changes (89 days to 32 days) and I’m not even through the [program]! My cycles appear to be normal, my sugar cravings have practically disappeared. My acne is improving. Melissa’s no BS approach to PCOS is what sold me. She’s blunt, straightforward, and doesn’t coddle you! Basically, if you put in the work and follow the recommendations she so thoughtfully lays out for you, you can most certainly expect to see results. "
"Your health is so worth the investment and you can use this information for life..." I got my period naturally about 3 months after finishing the course and it wasn’t painful for the first time ever! My mental health greatly improved and overall my body feels so much better. Your health is so worth the investment and you can use this information for life! "
"I'm down 30 pounds and on my second regular cycle... for the first time in my life!" ... "I was able to ovulate and now I'm almost 12 weeks pregnant!" ... "I got my period at 35 days! So much better than 45-60!" ... "Thank you so much for this course! I had my first natural ovulation ever a couple of weeks ago and confirmed pregnancy via hcg yesterday!!!" ... "I started my period today on day 29 of my cycle! No wonder they call you The Period Fairy, Melissa!!! "
What people ask before signing up for The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap™
You will gain IMMEDIATE ACCESS to Module 0: The Science Behind the Symptoms. Module 1: Insulin Resistance — The Not So Sweet Basis of PCOS will be released on Monday 10/17/22. The remaining modules will be released weekly on Mondays. You will have LIFETIME ACCESS to the course materials, so you can always go back for review or if anything changes for you. You also get access to any future updates of the materials.
You'll be able to watch the videos and complete the activities in approximately 1 hour per week for most of the modules. You can watch them on the website or download the Kajabi app to your phone. Additionally, the yoga videos provided each week are approximately 20-30 minutes each.
A limited number of vegetarian options are included in the recipes and meal plans, as well as gluten-free and dairy-free options. Note that I do not recommend a 100% plant-based diet for PCOS because it is simply too hard to achieve blood sugar balance without working one-on-one with a dietitian. You can always substitute in your preferred foods into the recipes.
This premium course was developed by award-winning integrative women's health dietitian and PCOS expert, Melissa Groves Azzaro, RDN, LD, and is fully evidence-based and proven in clinical practice. It is the ONLY course available developed and taught by a licensed registered dietitian that focuses on the root causes of PCOS as a whole and is not focused on fertility or weight alone. It is NOT a diet. It is an entirely different approach to treating PCOS than anything else you may have tried before.
I'm guessing you've been struggling with your symptoms for a long, long time. I'm not here to sell you some "miracle cure" that will undo all of that in just 6 weeks. Some symptoms respond faster than others. (For example, for my clients and for the women who've gone through the course already, skin tends to clear quickly; regular periods resume around 4-6 weeks; weight starts to shift after around 6-8 weeks; hair growth or hair loss can take 6 months to a year of consistent action to even begin to show signs of improving.) Obviously, what you get out of the course also depends on your commitment to implementing the recommendations. I can give you the information, but I can't make you follow it.
The BASIC option of this program is a self-study course. You will have access to the private community, where Melissa is actively answering questions; however, legally, personalized nutrition & supplement recommendations require you to be an active client.
The VIP option includes 6 weekly small group coaching sessions with Melissa.
If you would like personalized nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement advice, join the PLATINUM option of the course to schedule 2 one-on-one-appointments with Melissa.
Yes! This is NOT a diet plan. Additionally, any supplements discussed are clearly noted when they are not pregnancy- or breastfeeding-safe. The course is also appropriate if you are on hormonal birth control or you are menopausal. PCOS doesn't stop with menopause!
Yes. The BASIC version of the course is appropriate for those outside the U.S. because there is no one-on-one time with Melissa. However, please keep in mind that Melissa is a US-based dietitian, so recipes are in US measurements, recommended labs are available in the US and ranges are given in US measurements, and foods, supplements, and other products mentioned within the course are primarily US based.
The VIP and PLATINUM options of the course are available to participants in the U.S. only.
We offer this program 2x a year (Spring & Fall). The next round will be in 2023.
I want to make sure you're making the right decision, so you can enroll with confidence that this is the right next step for you.
You should give The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap™ a shot if...
Imagine yourself in just 6 short weeks...
Really understanding WHY PCOS makes you feel the way you do and what to do about it
Having fewer cravings and eliminating those night-time binges that come from underfueling yourself
Having so much energy you don't even know what to do with yourself
Seeing clearer, glowing skin in the mirror and thicker, shinier hair
Feeling less bloated and fitting better into your clothes
Getting regular periods without medications — and maybe even pregnant ?! (if you're trying)
Feeling 100% confident that you know how to eat for YOUR PCOS symptoms, which supplements are right for YOUR situation, and which lifestyle changes make sense for your life
Helping women with PCOS reach their goals is my life's mission!
In working with thousands of women with PCOS in my practice and in my programs, I've honed in on the key nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement changes that not only make a real difference, but also are sustainable. Yes, I geek out over the latest research... but if it's impossible to implement? Yeah, no thank you. Who has time to waste time?
After working in NYC advertising for 15 years, going back to school to become a dietitian, and then opening my own practice... I value time above all else. My goal is to get you from where you are to where you want to be as quickly and painlessly as possible.
And I take so much joy in being a part of your transformation... I celebrate WITH you every confirmed ovulation, every regular period, every positive pregnancy test. And not just the big stuff but the small improvements too — I love seeing you win!
If you're struggling... I see you. And I'm here to support you in your journey.
I look forward to meeting you personally inside The PCOS Root Cause Roadmap.™ Once you're in, you're part of the THD fam forever.
All my best,
