Herbs and Hormones

Thursday, October 28, 5-8 pm ET

Online via Zoom

How can we assess a person’s hormone profile and recommend appropriate herbs for them? Differentiating hormone imbalances and the hormonal effects of herbs allows us to choose an effective protocol for each person’s health goals. We will discuss specific indications for herbs that affect sex hormones, and review relevant physiology. This class will be taught through a trans-positive lens, including some information about herbs and gender affirmation.
