Welcome to your Menopausal Allies Online Course with mentor Susun Weed, author of New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way. We will look at specific aspects and problems – such as fertility, mood and emotion, sex, hot flashes, sleepless nights, lack of libido, building strong bones and preventing osteoporosis, creating a long-lived healthy heart, and your personal problems – in each and every lesson.
In the first lesson I will focus on three important herbal allies for menopausal women: burdock, dandelion, and yellow dock. In the second lesson, I will explain three more herbal allies for menopausal women: nettle, oatstraw, and red clover. Each lesson will include specific recipes, harvesting techniques, as well specific dosages. During our first teleseminar (teleovular?), I will share three ways of understanding your menopause: 1. “I am in a second puberty.” 2. “I am a caterpillar changing into a butterfly.” And 3. “I am creating the healthy, vibrant, juicy woman I wish to be for the rest of my life.” I will also discuss some of the problems with black cohosh, bio-identical hormones, progesterone cream, and soy. In the third lesson, I will tell you about three more herbal allies for menopausal women: cleavers, comfrey, and kelp. Our fourth and final lesson will find us crowning the crone, flying on our own wings, and co-creating ourselves and our lives with joy, abandon, and elegance (and herbal allies). We will focus on phytoestrogenic herbs in this last lesson. In our final teleseminar I will reveal truth behind the myths of estrogen dominance and estrogen lack as important during menopause. And I will explain the energy aspects of menopause.
