    Botanicals for Women's Health - Supporting Healthy Menopause

    Botanicals for Women's Health - Supporting Healthy Menopause

    Menopause is treated as a disease in conventional medicine circles but is this necessary? Menopause is a woman’s birthright; the right to move freely into the next phase of life where we truly know who we are and have a sense of freedom. Moving through this phase comfortably is a priority and nature offers options for supporting normal healthy hormone production as well as support for symptoms that may be uncomfortable.

Certified herbalist???

Went to listen to this podcast and was immediately turned off by the host claiming to be a certified clinical herbalist. She may have certifications from random schools but no governing body in the US licenses or certifies herbalists. Misleading. Will try another herbalism podcast.

Good...

Very informative. Some of the guests tended to be a bit repetitive with their verbiage which was distracting. One in particular said, “right?” hundreds of times throughout her session that had I received a penny for every “right?”, I’d be rich. Other than that, great podcast.
