Root And Nourish: Herbs For Female Reproductive Hormonal Health

June 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Virtual Event
Abbey Rodriguez  and Jennifer Kurdyla | Root and Nourish Book Club

Hormones are complicated, confusing and, for a long time, have been a taboo subject even among medical experts. When it comes to female reproductive hormones, many people have conceded to living a life of a monthly roller coaster of emotional and physical discomfort, which only gets more complicated as we age. This module will dispel the myths around what’s “normal” about how our hormones work by simplifying the conversation to two categories: stress hormones versus reproductive hormones.

Regardless of your gender or sex, this dichotomy will help you understand the role of stress and anxiety on your ability to feel grounded and supported in your body, so that its functions of maintenance, repair, and, yes, reproduction can allow you to be a creative force in the world on your terms. And while there’s a wealth of herbs that support female and reproductive health specifically, we’ll dive into how these plants can be used in a way that also supports the digestive system so they’re properly absorbed and transformed.
