Course Description

The "Restoring the Rhythmic Foundations of Female Health" symposium is designed to provide a new outlook on female health and hormone optimization, highlighting broad approaches to optimizing health at the cellular level. This symposium will provide a comprehensive overview of the myriad of roles played by hormones in the female body, describe their interplay with other body systems, and present an in-depth review on the benefits of physiologic hormone restoration in regards to female health optimization.
This symposium is designed for physicians and health care providers involved with the support of patient's utilizing hormones.
Attendees will obtain up-to-date knowledge regarding recent advances in hormonal treatment strategies as they relate to menopause, breast cancer, auto-immunity, circadian rhythms, sleep and stress issues, transgender hormone replacement advances, and approaches to overcoming endocrine disruptors.

Objective

  • 1: Review the hormonal changes that women manifest with aging and their negatively associated impact on chronic diseases.
  • 2: Learn the functions and uses of estrogen, and the consequences of estrogen insufficiency.
  • 3: Discuss the impact of unaddressed hormone insufficiency as it pertains to quality of life for patients and their families.
  • 4: Recognize the dangers related to the disruption of the circadian rhythm and sleep patterns and its impact on the menstrual cycle.
  • 5: Understand the damaging impact of stress as it relates to female health and reproductive function.
  • 6: Learn about entrainment of the rhythms and the clinical manifestations of disordered circadian rhythms.
  • 7: Understand the difference between low-dose, static hormone replacement and physiologic hormone restoration.
  • 8: Review and discuss clinical management guidelines regarding utilization of physiologic restoration with case studies.
  • 9: Review general cancer risks involving landmark studies incorporating various methods of hormone replacement therapy and its relationship to cancer risks.
  • 10:  Learn to order and assess relevant laboratory tests associated with hormone insufficiencies and physiologic hormone restoration.
  • 11:  Learn about the major hormone disruptors in the environment and why this is a problem for everyone.
  • 12:  Provide an overview of laboratory testing available to measure the body load of endocrine disruptors.
  • 13: Acquire practical strategies for lowering toxic exposures and promoting disruptor removal.
