In this fourth and final edition of this course, Dr. Svoboda and Scott Blossom L.Ac. talk in depth about our skin and reproductive microbiome.

In this course we delve into how this essential community of organisms relates to the health of our skin and reproductive organs.

Though microbiome research into these areas is just beginning, what is known is providing foundational insights into the prevention and healing of skin problems, the promotion of a healthy pregnancy, and support for overall reproductive health and healthy aging.

Through lectures, slides and suggested practices, we will help you to expand your knowledge of your skin and reproductive health.

In Class 2 Dr. Svoboda and Scott Blossom are joined by Dr. Claudia Welch, who is a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Ayurvedic practitioner and author, and will offer her expert perspective on Ayurveda’s view of women's reproductive health.

Class 1 addresses the skin microbiome, Class 3 will be the Q&A for this course, and Class 4 offers a concise but comprehensive review of what has been covered in all four courses.

This course stands on its own and does not require taking any of the previous courses.

If you have not yet dived into these offerings, you can also get all four courses together by going here.
