Nutrition/Herb Support for Fertility Patients Karen Reynolds, MS, RN, Lac

Fertility challenges have been steadily rising and will likely continue to do so as a result of multifaceted societal, physical, and environmental conditions. This workshop explores the complex biochemistry lab of the body as it impacts reproductive health. Topics include: impairment of liver biotransformation, gastrointestinal inflammatory processes, thyroid dysfunction, and adrenal stress syndrome. Signs and symptoms germane to common presentations will be discussed, as well as guidelines for optimizing nutrition, supplementation, limiting environmental exposure, and ultimately the support of the reproductive system with Oriental medicine.
