Krista will discuss the transitions in a woman's life through puberty, fertile years and perimenopause/menopause. Key herbs and lifestyle recommendations to support these transitions will be presented. Some of the specific conditions that will be presented in detail include painful menstruation, hormonal acne, mood irregularity, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, endometriosis, and infertility.
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.
