Get to know Dr. Jaclyn Chasse, N.D. of Northeast Integrative Medicine. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

I will be providing 3 workshops at the FAIR: Natural Options for Menopause, Building a Natural First Aid Kit, and Cleanse and Detox 101.

Jaclyn ChasseNatural Options for Menopause is for one of the largest patient groups I work with in practice, and natural medicine is such a great fit for managing menopause! Some women go through menopause with no change other than the cessation of menstruation. But for other women, they suffer with hot flashes, mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, changes in sex drive and much more. I am excited to share the most up to date research on what causes these symptoms in the first place, what works to ease these symptoms, and what women can do to transition through menopause gracefully and symptom-free. Husbands, you’re going to want to drag your wives to this seminar!

I gave the workshop Building a Natural First Aid Kit at last year’s FAIR, and it was wildly popular - the room was standing room only! It’s obvious that for anyone with a family, knowing how to manage urgent but non-life-threatening medical situations is a priority. In this workshop, we will go through the major at-home first aid situations: cuts, bruises, burns, sunburns, stings, fevers and much more and discuss how to use natural medicines, including herbal medicines and homeopathy, to manage these conditions. We will also discuss how to know when you need to see a doctor. This is a hands-on workshop - lots of great herbs to see, touch, taste, and experience!

I have a feeling that the workshop Cleanse and Detox 101 will be another popular one. Many people like to do a cleanse each year. Even many animals perform cleansing on a seasonal or annual basis. This workshop will first discuss how your body performs the process of detoxification including what organs are involved, how it happens, and why it is so important. We’ll then discuss the steps you can take to perform a detox or cleanse program. We’ll discuss what toxins you should always avoid and where we tend to be exposed. We will then cover simple and gentle things you can do to decrease the toxins you take into your body and increase your body’s elimination of toxins. If there’s interest, we will cover the barrage of supplements available to support detoxification and how to choose a high quality one that will meet your needs. You’re going to love your liver and your organic foods by the end of this presentation!
