Women's Health information, tips, and research

Many women are struggling with problems, such as breast cancer, painful menstruation, PMS, disruptive menopausal conditions, fibroids, endometriosis, herpes, HPV and many more. In this session I will address issues related to women and the female reproductive organs, beginning with an understanding of the female body from the ancient oriental wisdom perspective.

We will discuss:

  • Foods and their effect on our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
  • How to discern early warning signs of possible problems related to women’s health.
  • Which foods and lifestyle choices are positively affecting women’s health.
  • How foods, hormones and emotions are related.
  • How to prevent or reduce toxins and stagnation to build up in our reproductive organs and bodies as a whole.

Explore this exciting class designed for women to learn more about health/wellbeing and healing approaches from a woman’s perspective.

Emotional Eating, Cravings, Stress Eating

  • Does stress, anger, confusion or sadness drive you to eat? Do you turn to food for comfort, or when you're bored? Many people do. Eating for emotional reasons instead of being physically hungry can become a problem both in terms of weight and health.
  • Many of us turn to food for stress relief, comfort, or as a reward. If you’re an emotional eater, you may feel powerless over your food cravings. Emotional eating or stress eating is using food to make yourself feel better—eating to fill emotional needs, rather than to look at what is truly at the root of this.
  • Emotional eating can sabatoge your wellbeing, healing or weight loss efforts. Cravings can be emotional and some cravings are simply a chemical imbalance in the body or brain or hormonal household. We will look at different patterns and key factors to discern what is going on in the body and how to address them.
  • Health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, adrenal fatigue and overweight can accompany this situation.
  • Learn how to navigate thru emotional eating and cravings without using it as a coping mechanism.
  • Eating until we are over-stuffed is a sure sign something is going on emotionally. Are you ready to make changes?

Stress - the hidden stalker

  • Stress evokes a disturbance in our physical, emotional and mental equilibrium. A stressful event can trigger the 'fight or flight' response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge in the body. A brief period of stress can be exciting and stimulating. However, long-term stress or chronic stress can be detrimental on our physical, emotional and mental health and well being.
  • Learn how to break the vicious cycle of chronic stress by choosing specific foods and preparations and lifestyle choices.
