This Conference will clarify exactly how to approach hormonal dysregulation, with discussions on the most important evaluations to make and integrative treatment approaches to apply. We will help you analyze the controversies and provide you with tools that you can use immediately in your practice.

Our expert faculty team will supply you with the foundational background, insight, and in-depth clinical thinking to confidently assess and treat patients who present with hormonal dysfunction. This program will provide a unique, experiential, case-based, clinically practical experience from which you will acquire the tools you need to apply a comprehensive Functional Medicine approach to hormone dysfunction in your patients.

• The physiology and pathophysiology associated with melatonin, cortisol, DHEA, pregnenolone, TSH, T3, T4, RT3, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, and specifically their signaling, sensitivity, activity, metabolism, and excretion
• Recognize common antecedents and triggers and signs and symptoms associated with dysregulation of the HPATG axis
• Evaluate the most important laboratory tests to use in assessing hormone-related dysfunction, and recognize common pitfalls of lab testing
• Develop and organize individual treatment protocols using diet, nutraceuticals, botanicals, pharmaceuticals, and mind-body/behavioral interventions in the area of hormone dysregulation.
• Appropriately prescribe bioidentical hormones; understand important differences in routes of delivery, issues regarding safety and effectiveness, and HRT risks.
• Understand the controversies around breast cancer prevention and appropriately plan treatment programs for women.
