Improving Estrogen Balance
It has now been well established that one of the primary causes of cancers in hormone-dependent tissues, as well as many other hormone-related health conditions and symptoms, is excessive exposure to endogenous and exogenous sources of estrogen. What you may not know is that nutrition and lifestyle interventions can alter estrogen metabolism and ultimately reduce estrogen load in a number of ways, making them a powerful disease prevention tool!
Understanding estrogen metabolism allows you to help at-risk women significantly reduce their risk for breast, ovarian and uterine cancer, manage endometriosis, have healthier, comfortable menstrual cycles and much more.
Like all of the Women’s Health Nutrition Academy courses, you’ll find practical strategies to use with your clients in practice right away!
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to identify excess estrogen through both clinical assessment and through functional lab testing
- How estrogen is metabolized by the body*
- The most effective, evidence based nutrition and lifestyle interventions for reducing estrogen load and improving estrogen metabolism
- How to use Precision Analytical DUTCH testing to analyze estrogen metabolism in your patients
- A decision-making framework for using nutrition and lifestyle interventions including dietary supplements
*This webinar will be a deep dive into estrogen metabolism specifically. Therefore, it’s recommended that you watch Detoxification and its Role in Women’s Health first to get a broader understanding of detoxification.
