Description

This program is designed to provide practitioners insight into the assessment and management of symptoms commonly associated with hormone imbalances in men and women. Demonstrated primarily in case study format, discussions will include treatment options for various issues associated with hormone imbalance, including physiology, hormone restoration, pharmacologic approaches, nutritional influences, and lifestyle factors affecting outcomes.
Topics will include:
The assessment and treatment options for various disease states associated with hormonal imbalance, including hypertension, insulin resistance, adrenal dysfunction, PCOS and infertility.
The importance of iodine and its relationship to overall health.
Case studies providing insight into the interpretation of laboratory testing for hormones.
The clinical significance of ovarian function including the physiology and development of the ovaries.
