The Endocrine System: Grasping Chronic Fatigue, Diabetes, Female Hormones & more
Would you like to learn more about the underlying reasons for health issues such as Chronic Fatigue? Hyper- and Hypo-thyroid disorders? Diabetes? PMS, Menopause and other female hormone-related health concerns?
Lean all of this and also learn about many herbs to help your body balance and recover from endocrine dysfunction.
This 4-week, endocrine-health module is packed with helpful information to introduce you to anatomy and physiology of endocrine structures in the body specifically from the standpoint of herbal medicine. This will include basic anatomy and physiology of the hypothalamus, thyroid, pituitary, adrenals and gonads.
Additionally, this class will cover some of the most common disorders (causes and reasons) of the endocrine system and will include a materia medica that must be learned consisting of approximately 20 related medicinal herbs.
Looking at ways to help balance the normal (healthy) aging process as well as helping the body cope with endocrine dysfunction will be part of the curriculum and we will look at a number of health and lifestyle concerns as related to both physiology and herbal medicine, such as:
· Hypo- and Hyperthyroidism related issues
· Menopause, PMS, Osteoporosis, PCOS
· Adrenal dysfunction, Chronic Fatigue
Each pathophysiology module now includes an optional medicine making option for all students who want to participate. This will be an exercise that helps students to use their materia medica for the course and create a formula that is specific to what is learned in the course. A packet of herbs will be shipped to students within the US. International shipping is not available, but international students can request a list of herbs we are sending out to source locally!
