Gain confidence as a specialty practitioner and make a bigger difference with the clients who really need your help!

  • Do your female clients experience PMS, acne, insomnia, night sweats, or peri-menopausal symptoms?
  •  Are your male or female clients having difficulty with fertility? Do they have issues with fatigue, low sex drive, or weight loss?
  • Have they ever had or are they at high risk for hormone-related cancers? Are they experiencing Cardiovascular or bone health issues?

These could all represent issues related to hormonal imbalances! Unless you’re a doctor, your professional training doesn’t really equip you with the know-how to evaluate or assist your clients in this area of health. Don’t be intimidated – the truth is, there’s a LOT you can do, if you just know more!

Hormone Imbalances Are All Too Common!

You’ll get a deep dive into hormone health in this 6-session live webinar series (with 3 additional pre-recorded sessions). We’ll cover women’s health throughout the life cycle and of course, we’ll explore male hormone imbalances as well. These sections will detail hormone function, metabolism, and interplay, the various conditions related to male and female hormonal imbalances, and factors that promote and inhibit hormone balance including diet, lifestyle, supplements, medications, genomic influences, and environment.

Are Your Clients Being Told…

  • That birth control will fix their problems?
  • They should dread menopause?
  • They need medication for their insomnia or mood swings?
  • They can’t lose weight because they’re eating too much or exercising too little?
  • That low sex-drive happens to everyone, especially as we get older?

It’s Not Surprising!

Millions of women live their entire lives believing the myths that they have to not only live with but accept irregular, heavy, and painful periods, mood swings, weight gain, infertility, fatigue, and more as a normal part of life. Men get the same story for their hormonally-related issues – and hey, there’s a pill for that – never mind the root cause!

You Can Give Your Clients the Answers They Desperately Need!

Here’s What You’ll Learn in This Course:

  • Basic physiology of the female body and associated hormones at different phases of the human lifecycle.
  • The important functions of progesterone and estrogen and their relationship to each other.
  • Estrogen dominant conditions: PMS, menorrhagia, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breasts, and ovarian cysts
  • Hormone-related conditions in men and/or women: infertility, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, pregnancy, PCOS, and bone health concerns.
  • The genomic influence on hormone metabolism and the vital role of toxic burden, stress, and nutritional status
  • The role of diet, nutrition, OCAs, and HRT in modulating estrogen during reproductive and peri/postmenopausal years.
  • Men’s health, types of hormone testing, and using genomics to improve hormone health.
  • Supportive recommendation including diet, lifestyle, herbal and dietary supplemental support, and to know when to refer for further evaluation and support.

When hormones are imbalanced, your clients can get stuck in an agonizing rut of pain, endless doctor’s appointments without solutions, and even low self-esteem.

Imagine if you helped them get to the root-cause of their health issues…maybe this is a personal issue you and you’ll be able to help yourself too!
