"There is something mysterious surrounding hormones, women never quite get the concrete answers they are looking for. They get blood screenings, scans, squabs, scraps and smears, and they all come back negative, even though they intuitively know there is something wrong. We must be missing something important when it comes to hormones, and in this one day workshop we will be exploring just what it is that is being missed in the current treatment of common hormonal treatment such as Premenstrual Syndrome, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Insulin Resistance, Candida, Endometriosis and Menopause. With so much of conventional treatment being geared to the physical symptoms of hormonal conditions, we often miss the enormous complexity of the endocrine system and its connections to the emotions that drive it and the spirit of women that run it. In this fascinating approach to women’s hormonal health and well-being, women, practitioners and students will be able to move beyond the physical limitations of hormones, offering new insights and possibilities to the healing of hormones and their lives".

The Glands of the Endocrine System and their Hormones

Insights into Premenstrual Syndrome, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Insulin Resistance, Candida, Endometriosis and Menopause
