By: Jane Kennedy, Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, MN, MPH
Integrative and Functional Medicine has for decades used the principle of finding the underlying cause of imbalance in the whole person system and treating with modalities that cause the least side effects to return the patient to optimal balance. By using this approach, we can successfully evaluate changes in psychological health through the life cycle and determine if underlying hormonal imbalances of various types or dysfunctional states of metabolism, can be the the cause.
These include sex hormones, thyroid and adrenal hormones, insulin and glucose control, and neurotransmitters along with other hormones, for women and men at at any age. By promoting optimal life style choices, supplementation and bio-identical hormone replenishment when appropriate, we can offer approaches which have low risks of side effects.
The journey with patients to regain lost balance can be one filled with deep satisfaction as they reclaim their lives with a new sense of optimal health and well-being physiologically and psychologically.Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:
1. Identify points of physiologic hormonal changes in the life cycle when psychological changes are likely to occur for women and men.
2. List 3 major hormonal systems causing psychological symptoms and 2 of the most common with each system.
3. List 3 physiologic features patients demonstrate of hormonal or metabolic imbalance.
