When we consider women’s health from cradle to the grave, it can feel overwhelming to understand all the changes, transitions, fluctuations and conditions, and to begin to address or resolve them. In this workshop, Dr. Welch will explore how women’s primary hormones and most gynecological conditions and experiences can be understood when we comprehend and apply two underlying perspectives: perspectives that combine Ayurveda, nāḍi theory, Chinese Medicine, and Western science.
Applying these two perspectives, we will explore the root causes of many fundamental health concerns of women, including hormonal changes, breast health, infertility, painful gynecological issues, and other conditions and experiences common to women.
Once we are comfortable with these lenses, we can more clearly perceive how best to begin to address and resolve imbalances. We will learn some practical, simple, tools to aid us to do just this.
This seminar is designed to complement to the information presented in Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life: Achieving Optimal Health and Wellness through Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and Western Science, but it is not necessary to have read the book before attending. This seminar is taught to be accessible and valuable for MDs, students and practitioners of Ayurveda, TCM, Eastern medicine and for people outside of the healthcare professions as well.
(Please wear comfortable clothes. We will not be doing āsana, but we may be spending about an hour each day doing practical exercises for the cultivation of prāṇa or qi).
