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.
This course was designed to complement Krista’s other course, Women’s Health – Female Anatomy, Hormones And Cycle-Tracking which provides an overview of anatomy and hormones to set a strong foundation. We suggest taking these courses together if you need a review of these systems.
In this course, Krista presents menstrual cycle-charting, a tool for practitioners to assess reproductive pathologies with their patients and manage these conditions. Within the menstrual cycle chart, you will be able to identify the follicular and luteal phase pathologies including progesterone deficiency leading to recurrent miscarriages, anovulatory cycles leading to infertility or PCOS and estrogen dominance leading to fibroids and endometriosis.
Anatomy and pathology are covered for each condition, outlining the prevalence and the key identifying features for differential diagnosis. Krista will also discusses transitions in a woman’s life with puberty, fertile years and perimenopause / menopause. Treatment protocols focusing on herbal, supplemental and nutritional/lifestyle treatment protocols for common reproductive pathologies such as post-birth control pill amenorrhoea, dysmenorrhea, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hormonal acne, fibroids, endometriosis, and infertility.
Herbal protocols also are presented for transitions in a woman’s life through puberty, fertility years and perimenopause/menopause.

If you are looking to add herbal medicine to your healing journey, Krista will make you feel empowered every step of the way. Notable improvements that I have observed from patients, or experienced firsthand, have included issues ranging from infertility and amenorrhea, to support for coming off of the birth control pill and post-abortion care, to name a few.
