Natural Approaches to Menopause
Baby boomers have redefined approaches to adolescence, pregnancy, child rearing, and now menopause. Menopause is not a disease requiring medical intervention, but a passage of life that may (or may not) produce uncomfortable symptoms. You might think of menopause as the flip side of adolescence. We have walked different paths to get to this stage, thus our bodies will respond differently. Almost every culture uses plants to support their women through this progression of time. Explore the power of herbs and other natural remedies for the time just prior to and during menopause. Book this workshop
