About this Class

The structures of the reproductive tract can be injured or debilitated and we need to know how to approach them, not just through the hormonal theory, but through knowledge of the structural components: the tendons the hold up the uterus (affecting the back), the muscles and nerves of the uterus itself, the bladder, cervix, vagina, mucosa, and the balance of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints which make up the pelvic floor. Prolapse, fibroids, uterine polyps, tipped uterus, bladder problems, structural anomalies. In this segment we we share lifetimes of knowledge about strengthening, nourishing, relaxing, or toning various tissues and organs of the tract.

Everyone interested in this subject must catch this assemblage of three highly experienced herbalists with over 100 years of clinical experience between them.

We cover the topics of menarche, menstruation, pregnancy, lactation, menopause, and everything in-between (except fertility--handled in another class), but it will do so from several different perspectives. It goes without saying that three herbalists will have three perspectives, but beyond that, we are referring to (1) analysis in terms of hormones, (2) analysis in terms of tissues (ligaments, mucosa, muscles, pelvic floor, etc.), and (3) the relationship between the immune system, sympathetic and reproductive function.  Female reproductive cancers will largely not be discussed here.
