Who Should Attend?
Class will be of special interest to: the public, doulas, midwife birth assistants, herbalogists, naturopaths, Chinese traditional medicine practitioners and students, other care service providers and women who practice self healing.

This class will explore the Chinese Medical understanding of fibroids. We will explain the causes, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual as well as the treatment of fibroids. We will also examine ways in which diet and lifestyle may contribute to their formation. All of this will be seen through the light of Chinese Medical Diagnostics which elegantly unifies the body, mind, emotions and spirit into its vision of health.
