    A Holistic Approach
    to PMS &
    Painful Menstruation

    with Aimee Miller. L.Ac.

    For many women, the menstrual cycle is a time of physical pain and/or emotional suffering. Depression, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, menstrual cramps, and a host of other symptoms are all too common complaints. For some women the suffering is so great they turn to hormonal birth control, anti-depressants, and pharmaceutical pain killers to cope with these symptoms. But these drugs come with side effects, and they only mask the symptoms rather than correct the underlying imbalance. In this class, join licensed acupuncturist and herbalist Aimee Miller to discover a more holistic approach that addresses both the symptoms AND the underlying cause of these symptoms.

    In this class we will learn:

    • Common reasons for why women experience PMS and difficult periods, from both Western and Chinese Medicine perspectives.
    • The essential role diet plays in having a healthy menstrual cycle, as well as which foods specifically to focus on and avoid. Recipes included!
    • Which herbs, herbal formulas, nutritional supplements, and essential oils we can use to prevent and relieve PMS symptoms. Both Chinese and Western herbs will be discussed. Herbal medicine and essential oil product recipes will be included, as well as samples.
    • Simple self-care rituals we can do each month to honor ourselves on our moon-times.
    • Learn how to create your own energetic “red tent”, and how to use the menstrual period as a special and sacred time for cleansing, renewal, and inner reflection.
