Lorna Vanderhaeghe is at the Schubert Centre Wednesday to help women learn how they can naturally balance their hormones.

Lorna Vanderhaeghe is at the Schubert Centre Wednesday to help women learn how they can naturally balance their hormones.

This may be the last time Vernonites will have a chance to hear one of Canada’s most well-known experts on women’s hormones.

If you are a teenager suffering with heavy periods and acne, in your 30s struggling with infertility, or constantly dealing with hot flashes and the other joys that come with menopause, these are all topics Lorna Vanderhaeghe will cover in her talk, “Everything you need to know about hormones.”

Her free lecture is presented by Simply Delicious on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Schubert Centre, and people are encouraged to arrive early to get a seat.

Vanderhaeghe has been studying natural health for 35 years, has her master’s in nutrition, a degree in biochemistry, and has been studying hormones and women’s health for 17 years.

“I am basically teaching women where their hormones are coming from and how they affect many of the health conditions they may have,” said Vanderharghe.

The author of 13 books is going to be scaling back on her traveling for speaking engagements to focus on her writing and do more of her lectures in a webinar format.

One of the points she wants to get across in her presentation is that the younger you learn about your hormones, the sooner they can be controlled in a natural way.

“If you are a teenager with period problems, that is one of the first signs of a hormone imbalance,” said Vanderharghe.

She will also discuss how she believes hormone imbalance contributes to the statistic that one in six women have fertility problems.

“Doctors are using birth control pills as Band-aids for problems we shouldn’t be using birth control pills for,” she said.

Other topics she will cover are hormones and how they affect our skin, and how they cause weight gain.

“Any woman from the age of 12 until she dies can benefit. I will discuss how to naturally get your hormones back in balance without using synthetics.”
