Nutritional Status and Hormone Balance

by Marion Owen, MD

Description

Nutritional status and the ability to adequately detoxify are critical components in understanding how to evaluate and support hormone levels. The body relies on key nutrients and pathways to maintain hormone balance.

Oxidative stress and impaired methylation are significant pathways that can help regulate hormones. A comprehensive nutrition assessment and targeted therapeutic interventions can help support these and other essential pathways.

In this presentation, Dr. Owen will review nutritional testing and clinical recommendations based on the science behind these tests. The information will help support clinicians in their ability to easily incorporate these recommendations into practice, thereby providing better clinical results when balancing hormones as well as help to promote safer use of hormone therapies.

In this webinar you will learn:

  1. The latest scientific aspects of how nutritional status plays a role in hormone balance
  2. Effective use of nutritional testing to identify key nutritional imbalances relating to hormone function
  3. How to integrate the use of nutritional testing to provide better clinical outcomes for hormone balancing and hormone replacement
