Cardiovascular events remain the number one cause of death for women, yet little attention has been paid to the fact that women and men have great differences of their cardiovascular systems. Their different hormones also create differing impacts upon their immune, neurological, and musculoskeletal systems. The numerous ways estrogen affects the function of the female body has been overlooked by the conventional medical system, and in fact, was nearly buried by the infamous Women's Health Initiative (WHI) Study.

The time has come to acknowledge the grave flaws of the WHI, and openly explore the myriad ways estrogen supports the female body and to acknowledge the grave impact of menopause on female cardiometabolic health. As well, the past 20 years has brought incredible new understandings of how the female body works, with revelations of the role of the gut microbiome, the circadian and lunar rhythms, the endocannabinoid system, and recognition of the healing effects of nutritional and lifestyle choices, as well as the benefits of fasting, all working synergistically to optimize female health.

These lectures will explain every facet of these new understandings, ultimately presenting a therapeutic approach, each health care practitioner can implement in their practice, to optimize the health of every women patient, as she transitions into the menopause and during the remaining years of her life.
