Balancing Hormones Naturally

Are you tired of taking drugs to get pregnant?
Does your life seem to revolve around the agony of your period?
Have hormonal weight gain and hot flashes made you feel like you’re in someone else’s body? Hormonal imbalances can rock your world in ways you never thought possible. But I am here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way!

In this workshop you will get:
● An easy and accessible understanding of what our hormones do
● Tips and tools on getting back to balance (Naturally!)
● Mindfulness exercise on body acceptance at any stage of life!

Join Amanda Leuthardt (pictured above) on Tuesday, July 9th and learn how to NATURALLY rebalance your hormones and start re-loving the body you are in! Location is the Global Understanding Video Conference Room, Campus Center Building, room 233. Start time is noon.

As a licensed acupuncturist, Amanda is an expert in the field of mind and body health.
