Women’s health care is complex and encompasses acute and chronic vaginal infections as well as Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and the concern of cervical cancer. In this advanced class we will explore the botanical medicine options that can be used either as alternatives or adjuncts to conventional treatments for the following women’s health concerns:
Bacterial and Yeast Infections
Care for acute and chronic infections of the vaginal tissue and their relation to gut health and hormonal balance.
Botanicals and supplements for preventing outbreaks and for educing severity and frequency of future outbreaks. This information would be applicable for all forms of herpes infections including shingles.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
Botanical therapeutics for treatment and resolution of HPV in the woman and her partner to prevent reinfection. Therapeutics for genital warts resulting from HPV. Safer alternatives to Gardasil and prevention of cervical cancer.
Discussion of the types of Cervical Dysplasia (Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) and botanical therapeutics to normalize cellular activity in the tissue.
In this class we will discuss the botanical therapeutics and protocol options for each condition. We will discuss case studies and current research. Previous background in herbal medicine or conventional medicine is recommended before registering for this class.
