The Menstrual Cycle & Phytoestrogens: May Hormone Deep Dive

A training for herbalists & nutritionists on May 8 at 5 pm ET

May 8 from 5-6 pm ET

What you'll learn:

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease experienced by more than 10% of adults in North America and its precursor, insulin resistance, is even more prevalent. This class will expand on the pathophysiology of insulin resistance to include interconnections with hormones, the liver, the thyroid, stress, systemic oppression and more. While the dominant medical paradigm focuses on symptoms like weight gain, a holistic approach can address underlying root causes and offer whole person support through a client-centred, body-positive and harm reduction approach. From this lens, we will focus on framing realistic and empowering goals, and core principles for building accessible and effective herbal protocols. Ember will present a case study example to demonstrate these principles.

A recording will be available to everyone who registers, so please sign up even if you can't attend live. Note that registration closes when the session begins. 

By the end of the session, you'll be able to: 

Differentiate between underlying causes and symptoms of insulin resistance
Connect underlying causes of insulin resistance to challenges our clients face such as stress and systemic oppression
Connect the pathophysiology of insulin resistance with other imbalances in the body such as the thyroid, the liver, hormone imbalances, and more, including assessing blood test results
Build body-positive and empowering herbal protocols based on the individual client’s unique goals and barriers

You'll receive access to the live session, a recording of the session, slides, an extensive references list, and a quiz/certificate option for those who need continuing education hours.
