Krista Dawn Poulton | Medical Herbalist, DIP PHYT, RHT

Krista Dawn Poulton is a Medical Herbalist in Victoria, BC. She balances her private practice as a faculty member at Pacific Rim College, teaching courses in herbal medicine and medicine making, along with supervising clinical training. Her mission with her practice is to teach women to love and adore their bodies, address societal norms of body awareness, and educate ways to shift reproductive issues with the use of herbs, diet and supplements. Krista’s clinical practice focuses primarily on reproductive health from post-birth control care, fertility planning to infertility, endometriosis, fibroids and PCOS.

Course description

In this powerpoint presentation, you will solidify your cycle-tracking knowledge with in-depth case studies. This course is designed to build upon the knowledge you’ve gained from Krista’s other courses:
Women’s Health – Anatomy, Hormones & Cycle-Tracking (General interest)
Menstrual Cycle-Tracking & Herbal Medicine (General interest)
Menstrual Cycle-Tracking & Herbal Medicine For Practitioners (Practitioner level)

In this mini-course, Krista will guide you through 4 complex case studies where she used cycle charting and herbal formulas to help the patients. You will be presented with case histories, symptom presentations, herbal formulas, lifestyle recommendations and treatment results for each patient.

She will be covering:

Case 1: High Androgens
Case 2: Infertility
Case 3: Infertility with Pregnancy
Case 4: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) + Fibroids

We hope that you share stories with us about your own patients or personal results once you start creating your own case studies!

You will learn about:

  • Utilizing cycle tracking information to assess complex cases
  • What real patient cycle tracking charts look like before, during, and after herbal treatments
  • Modifying herbal formulas based on symptoms and progress
  • What results can look like when using cycle tracking and herbal formulas for hormonal challenges
Herbal medicine can treat complex menstrual cycle cases.

Lesson plan

  1. Case 1: High Androgens
    Here, Krista presents the case of a 29-year-old female suffering from cystic acne, blood sugar imbalances, irregular menstrual cycles, and excessive hair growth. Krista presents the patient’s cycle tracking charts and the corresponding herbal formulas and lifestyle recommendations
  2. Case 2: Infertility
    This female patient has had one miscarriage, and had been trying to conceive again without success for 1-year. She had very irregular cycles that needed regulation in order to conceive again! Watch Krista assess her cycle charts and provide herbal formulas and modifications to get her back on track.
  3. Case 3: Infertility With Pregnancy
    This 35-year-old female patient was suffering from infertility after a prolonged period on the birth control pill and had difficulty getting her period back after the birth of her first child. She was waitlisted for a fertility clinic before seeing Krista. Watch how the cycle charting information helps Krista find the correct formulas for her to regulate her cycle improve her fertility.
  4. Case 4: PCOS & Fibroids
    Krista presents the case of a 36-year-old female patient suffering from PCOS and a diagnosis of fibroids. Krista takes her symptoms (excessive hair growth, difficulty losing weight, severely painful menstrual cramps, heavy & long periods) and analyzes her cycle chart. Learn about some effective formulas created for this case.
