Women's Wisdom Home Course
Powerful Herbal Remedies for Radiant Health at All Ages
❝I am thrilled to be able to share some of the wisdom that I have garnered through my formal education and over the years of my clinical practice.
This powerful series on Women’s Wisdom focuses on using herbal, dietary and natural medicines to help women empower and educate themselves to take care of their families and their own bodies. It will also give the wisdom needed to navigate a medical care gauntlet that often turns our sacred cycles into pathologies and can sometimes chastise women for not choosing hormones and for asking intelligent questions.
This course offers something for everyone, whether you are an experienced healer seeking therapeutic tools for your patients or a woman seeking answers and support for self-care and wishing to acquire helpful language in using your medical insurance.❞
-- Jill Stansbury
What You Will Learn:
- Endocrine System Basics: The complex synergism of the hormone-producing organs of the body are presented in easy to understand terms. You will learn how the brain, adrenal glands, thyroid gland, and ovaries work in tandem, and what natural medicines help support this beautiful synergism.
- Menopause and Hormonal Support: Are you confused about when to use hormone replacement therapies, or concerned about their safety? Would you like to learn about herbal and natural remedies that manage hot flashes, support rejuvenating sleep, and help nourish your skin and bones? Plants can be our healing allies in this transition and many effective tools will be shared.
- Osteoporosis: Our bones are living crystals where minerals, protein, and a rich blood supply constantly rebuild the foundation upon which we stand on this mighty earth. The most commonly prescribed drugs for osteoporosis actually interfere with this vital recycling and rebuilding process and there is growing concern about them causing decay of the jawbone and other problems. Learn how to keep this framework strong throughout life using mineral tonics, herbs and nutritional support, natural hormones, and exercise.
- Infertility: The occurrence of infertility has been on the rise worldwide, in most cases due to complex yet subtle hormonal imbalances. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) presently affects at least 10% of all women and is the leading cause of infertility. In addition to interfering with ovarian health and fertility, many women with PCOS also struggle with hirsuitism, acne, obesity, metabolic problems and are at an increased risk for some reproductive cancers. This section will explain what’s wrong and offer many dietary, herbal, and nutritional remedies to help support optimal hormonal balance and restore fertility.
- Sacred Cycles: We offer the alternate perspective that women’s cycles should be celebrated rather than" pathologized". Simply becoming aware of your own rhythms is medicine in and of itself. Learn tools the help you to go with the flow, and soften any jagged edges you may experience in your sacred cycle, and support your complexion, mood, fluid retention, or problematic menses. Learn how to connect with nature and lunar rhythms as a healing ally.
- Breast Health: The breasts are hormonally sensitive and reliant on healthy lymphatic circulation. Whether premenstrual breast tenderness, fibrocystic or discreet cystic lesions, or breast cancer concerns, optimizing hormonal balance and supporting lymph flow are foundational therapies. We will learn how liver and bowel health impact both lymph and hormonal balance, and what herbal and natural medicines are effective to support healthy breasts. There are also supportive protocols for women undergoing chemo or radiation for breast cancer, or herbs specific for mastitis in nursing women that will be shared.
Skin and Beauty: Premenstrual skin break outs and adolescent acne may be minor nuisance to something bordering on traumatic and threatening to injure a young woman’s self-esteem. And many older women spend a significant amount on lotions, potions, and expensive therapies aimed at combating the aging process.
Don’t forget how important basic health is to achieving radiant skin. The skin is a secondary of elimination, so if the liver, bowels, or kidney are working on overdrive, some of the waste will show up in the skin. And skin renews itself every several weeks from the collagen and elastin framework supporting by the healthy microcirculation and lymphatic flow.
Before your poison your gut with tetracycline as a treatment for acne, try some simple and nourishing therapies. And don’t spend your hard earned money on expensive creams if you don’t first put some effort in nourishing the foundation with some basics. Women of every age will gain some tools for life and beauty routine inspiration in this session.
- Care of the Spirit—Addressing the Nervous System and Stress: Stress seems to be the human condition and it is a shame that we don’t give more attention to caring for our spirits and souls. While some amount of stress seems unavoidable, succumbing to it is optional! You will learn some of the well-researched brain and adrenal mechanisms that contribute to stress, and herbal tools to deal with them. Bringing joy, laughter, comfort, and beauty to our lives is Big Medicine, and we will address ways to weave healing rituals that appeal to your senses and to your soul into your daily life.
- The Green Goddess—Herbal Tonics for Daily Life: This nuts and bolts session is aimed at sharing some basic tonics: adaptogens, alternatives, mineral tonics, circulatory tonics etc., for immediate use. You will learn some basic vocabulary if you are new to herbal medicine, and gain further depth to your materia medica knowledge base if you are a seasoned clinician. I will share some of my favorite inexpensive and easy to prepare recipes and medicinal food ideas that you can implement immediately in your home.
- Herbal Formulas—Putting it All Together: Ready to dive into self-care? You’ve learned some vocabulary, you’ve learned many tools for self-care, and hopefully been inspired to take your power back. What’s next is learning how to craft more individualized and sophisticated formulas for yourself, your sisters, your daughters, and your mothers to claim health and balance. In this session I will model ways to put together effective formulas using the tools, herbs, and ideas presented over the Women’s Wisdom series. Ready, Set, Off you go!
