Menstrual Cycle Charting and Herbal Medicine for Practitioners
April 28 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm$90
A practitioner-based workshop introducing menstrual cycle charting, a tool for practitioners to assess reproductive pathologies with their patients and manage these conditions. This class will introduce menstrual and ovulation cycle charting covering basic concepts of a women’s reproductive system including anatomy, hormones, ovulation and menstruation. Additionally we will cover menstrual cycle charting with basal body temperature, cervical changes and cervical mucous, offering women empowerment with their bodies and their reproductive health. We will focus on assessment of cycle charts along with herbal, and supplement treatment protocols with common reproductive pathologies such as painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea), acne and emotional changes throughout the cycle, PCOS, fibroids, endometriosis and infertility. Within the menstrual cycle chart, we will be able to identify follicular and luteal phase pathologies including progesterone deficiency leading to recurrent miscarriages, anovulatory cycles leading to infertility and estrogen dominance leading to fibroids, and endometriosis.
