Free Webinar Botanicals to Support Ovarian Function and Healthy Androgen Balance*.   Recorded April 05, 2022. Presented by Wendy Warner, MD, FACOG, ABIHM, IFMCP

Ovarian function can be complex. It is affected by metabolic processes including insulin and cellular health and causes many downstream effects. In this presentation, we reviewed current understanding of the biochemical mechanisms as well as support options. Sequence of support options is essential and was discussed. We also focused on early assessment and the “lean variant” that can easily go unrecognized. Herbs discussed included Spearmint, Cinnamon, Chaste Berry, Milk Thistle, Fenugreek, Astragalus, and Berberine-containing plants. We also touched on the role of Bitters in management, as well as a few supplements and basic lifestyle/ food choices.*
