Herbs for Hormone Balance: Mood, PMS, & Menopause
Taught by Katya Difani, herbalist & founder of Herban Wellness
Saturday, September 30th 9:30-11:30 am.
Stress in our lives, toxins in our environment, and dietary factors can throw off the balance of our reproductive hormones as well as our adrenal and thyroid hormones. Symptoms that come with PMS, perimenopausal fluctuations, and menopause are familiar to many, as are infertility and fatigue due to long-term stress. Mood swings and general emotional imbalance can come with the menstrual cycle or at any time if any of these systems are disrupted. This class is intended to educate you how to use herbs and nutrients to support your body's return to balance. Through their actions on the adrenal glands, ovaries, thyroid, and other glands/organs, herbs can help restore hormonal balance and therefore help effect our emotional health as well.

Metabolic Syndrome and Its Impact on Your Health
Taught by Michele Milligan, herbalist & gardener
Saturday, October 28th from 9:30-11:30 am
Take control of your health and reduce or slow the rate of inflammation and aging in the body. Metabolic Syndrome is defined as "a cluster of biochemical and physiological abnormalities associated with the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes," and is also implicated in other system imbalances such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Pre-metabolic syndrome is more than simply pre-diabetes and is a warning sign to greater development of disease in the body. Herbal medicine, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle measures can reduce the effects of metabolic syndrome and associated inflammation on the body and restart the metabolism. Learn some of Michele's strategies to manage a healthy life style and change the course of inflammation in the body with the use of herbal medicines.
