The optimal health and wellbeing of a woman is intimately linked to her menstrual cycle, a complex process orchestrated by interactions between many of the body's tissues, cells, and hormones - so much so it can be thought of as her “fifth vital sign”. 

Over the course of the day we will map mechanisms, root causes and integrative  treatment options of female hormonal imbalances and related conditions across the menstrual cycle from menarche to perimenopause. Conditions and interconnected organs covered within this framework are:- ovarian, uterine & vaginal health,  amenorrhea, irregular & painful periods, PMS, PMDD, PCOS and endometriosis.
