Education & Mentoring

Practitioner Information


Are you a practitioner looking to up-skill your assessment skills and knowledge in the area of the vaginal microbiome and genitourinary health?

As an educator Dr. Moira Bradfield Strydom (PhD, Naturopath) offers a forum for Holistic practitioners to learn more about the vaginal microbiome and disorders of the genitourinary system. She also runs regular educational clinical training courses to upskill practitioners in their knowledge of these important health issues.

Twice a year Dr. Moira runs "Vagiversity" a six month education and mentoring program for practitioners who want to upskill in the world of genitourinary microbiome health. Enrolments for this course are communicated on the FB practitioner group Intimate Ecology Group and via email updates. The Intimate Ecology Group is a forum for practitioners to stay up to date with latest research and clinical experiences.

If you are a practitioner you can request access to the Intimate Ecology Group on facebook. You will be asked to provide evidence of your qualification.

Mentoring is another way to upskill and support your clients. Details below.
