In-person workshop June 15th with Dr. Liz Carter:

Balance your hormones, emotions, and health in perimenopause and menopause naturally

Alleviate your hot flashes, mood swings, sleep issues, weight gain, and more with naturopathic and Chinese medicine

Are your hormones taking you for a wild ride that make you feel like an entirely different person?

If you’re in your 40s or 50s you may want to hide how you feel because you think you should be able to handle it.

“What’s the big deal? I’ve dealt with hormones my whole adult life.”

But sucking it up and “just dealing” doesn’t work and you end up feeling worse.

Common perimenopause and menopause symptoms are:

  • hot flashes
  • night sweats
  • not being able to stay asleep
  • mood swings
  • irritability
  • vaginal dryness
  • migraines
  • heavy periods
  • weight gain

There can also be an overwhelming sense of grief and losing yourself as the reproductive years you’ve known your whole adult life transition into something new and unknown.

It can feel like you’re suddenly rudderless, trying to find yourself again while keeping up with normal life.

Fortunately, it’s possible to feel balanced, happy, and leave your uncomfortable symptoms behind.

In this 90 minute workshop you’ll learn how to:

address the root of your hormonal imbalances so you leave hot flashes, mood swings, migraines, and more in the past

make supportive lifestyle changes that will decrease your symptoms now and benefit your long term health in the future

release the guilt and discomfort around natural aging and embrace this new era of life

dive into the deep mental and emotional aspects of your life that are requesting attention so you can become who you were meant to be in later life and avoid staying stuck in the same patterns

Perimenopause and menopause aren’t just your run-of-the-mill monthly hormonal shifts that you’ve learned to expect and cope with.

These are profound periods (pun intended) of transformation on a mental, emotional, and physical level.

And the same strategies you’ve used in the past to manage your hormones aren’t going to be enough.

Perimenopause and menopause are a second puberty with less education.

If you’re lucky, you learn about some of the typical symptoms like night sweats and mood swings, but very few women understand the magnitude of the mental and emotional transition that’s knocking at their door because no one talks about it.

Many women keep their symptoms to themselves because perimenopause and menopause are obvious signs of aging. Our youth-obsessed culture creates feelings of guilt, shame, and fear of being viewed as out of touch and expendable.

Even our mainstream medical system makes it feel like there’s something wrong with you that needs to be fixed or just endured.

But here’s the thing…

Perimenopause and menopause are normal and natural, and learning to embrace them will make your transition smoother.

Symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings are messengers from your body.

They’re making you uncomfortable because something is off-kilter internally and you need to look deeper and find the cause.

Figuring out how to do this can be simpler than you think.

You just have to get away from the modern western medical system that emphasizes squashing your symptoms and misses the big picture of this mega important life changing transition that’s occurring.

Naturopathic and Chinese medicine offer a different approach that’s holistic, time-tested, and effective.

Both medicines:

  • use gentle but potent therapies like nutrition, lifestyle changes, herbs, and more
  • address the root cause of your health issues rather than chasing symptoms
  • treat you as a whole person rather than disconnected parts that don’t influence each other
  • view your body as intelligent and capable of healing itself

These medicines consider your symptoms a healthy response to a physical, mental, or emotional insult.

You’re not broken because you feel overwhelmed, moody, are experiencing hot flashes, weight gain, and more.

These are normal responses to your body trying to heal itself. The stronger the symptoms, the more your body is trying to heal.

From this perspective, perimenopause and menopause are healing responses. Your symptoms are an effort to rebalance and prepare you so you can move into the next stage of life with less baggage and more vitality.

So if you’re ready to dig deeper into your hormonal issues and feel empowered rather than overwhelmed, you’re invited to attend:

Navigating Perimenopause and Menopause Naturally

90 minute, in-person, interactive workshop designed to give you strategies for thriving through transition and embracing nature’s wisdom

With Dr. Liz Carter, naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist helping patients through perimenopause and menopause for 13+ years

Working with Dr. Liz helped me to see that menopause was about so much more than my hormones. I found that after years of putting my needs last, I had to start putting myself first and take care of myself the way I did for everyone else. I’m grateful that she helped me to understand that my body was working for me and I just had to start listening. When I did, my depression, mood swings, and hot flashes became much more manageable. And I had tools to work with them rather than feeling like this was just my life now.

—Kayla D.

What you’ll learn:

The reasons behind your perimenopause and menopausal symptoms and what you can do to resolve them naturally

How to work in harmony with your body and mind through your transition rather than fighting against them

Practical tips for maintaining hormonal balance through nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle adjustments

Mind-body techniques to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance overall well-being

Embracing the wisdom of nature and harnessing its healing power during menopause

Practical strategies from naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine that will help you feel healthier in the short and long term including dietary recommendations, mental and emotional reflection points, and lifestyle changes

A workbook summarizing the major points about the material and space to take your own notes

Hi, I’m Dr. Liz

I’ve been practicing in the Seattle area since 2011 as a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist. Some of my favorite work is supporting people through life transitions and helping them rediscover and remake themselves in the process.

I’ve helped hundreds of women navigate hormonal issues naturally from PMS to conception to peri and post menopause. Hormonal health is fundamental to women’s wellbeing and learning how to work with your body’s own natural rhythms can be life changing.

Here's the new testimonial: Dr. Liz has seen me throughout my 30s and 40s, through many transitions and challenges including parenting, changing careers, divorce, and chronic health conditions. Her treatments have not only relieved my symptoms, but helped me identify further steps to take for my own growth. Now in perimenopause, I am grateful for her continued practical advice and treatment, like tips for hot flashes and maxed out adrenals. Dr. Liz is wonderful about sharing useful information—her menstruation seed-cycling chart is on display in our family’s kitchen. Always approachable and easy to work with, she embodies the best of what naturopaths do.
—Jen Z.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if the workshop is sold out?

Don’t worry, we’ll do another one! Just enter your email above and we’ll get you on the list!

Does this workshop talk about bioidentical hormones?

I’ll speak about bioidentical hormones briefly but they’re not my area of expertise and I don’t often recommend them. The focus of the workshop will be on supportive lifestyle changes you can make to help balance your health and hormones.
