Conference Description
This dynamic conference will expand on your foundational knowledge of naturopathic endocrinology to bring new considerations and paradigms to your therapeutic toolkit. It will enhance your understanding of some key hormonal systems and explore the most exciting new concepts in endocrinology. Presented by experts in the field of endocrinology, conference topics include men's and women's health, metabolic endocrinology, thyroid and adrenal health, and much more. Jillian Stansbury, ND will kick off the conference with a unique presentation on prescribing herbal medicines for endocrine disorders, followed by Jaclyn Chasse, ND presenting on the endocrinology of the endometrium and how this relates to pelvic health concerns. Alan Christianson, NMD – whose new book Adrenal Reset was just added to the New York Times Best-Sellers list – will teach us all about naturopathic ways to heal adrenal dysfunction. Finally, we end our first day with a guru in women’s health, Tori Hudson, ND, who will present on the naturopathic management of difficult menopause cases. Day two begins with a fantastic presentation by Lyn Patrick, ND – one of the founders of the Naturopathic Association of Environmental Medicine – to discuss the impact that environmental chemicals have on the thyroid, followed by a thought-provoking presentation by Amy Chadwick, ND on endobiogenics and the unique role of hormones in asthma and migraines. Paul Anderson, ND will end our conference with a great presentation on male hormones and sexual dysfunction. After this conference you will be confident in implementing cutting-edge therapies for a wide range of endocrinology conditions.

Innovative Botanical Medicines for the Endocrine System by Dr. Jillian Stansbury, ND
Based on current research, this presentation will review botanical agents that affect the adrenal glands, thyroid gland and reproductive organs. This will include such specific topics as botanicals affecting dopaminergic transmission and its control of pituitrophins. The information presented will have clinical implications for PCOS, metabolic disorders, thyroid disorders, and mixed endocrine imbalances.
 

Endocrinology of the Endometrium: Shedding Light on the Uterus by Dr. Jaclyn Chasse, ND
The endometrium is a mysterious, yet fascinating place. We tend to overlook the endometrium as an endocrinologically active tissue, though it is actually quite involved in hormonal and biochemical processes which influence proper menstrual function, implantation of a fertilized embryo and proper tissue health. This presentation will offer a deep dive into the complex workings of the endometrium and will focus on a functional approach to evaluate and manage endometrial complaints including metrorrhagia, metorrhagia, fibroids, hyperplasia, endometriosis, and implantation-related infertility. Through this lecture you will gain a deeper understanding of an approach to successfully treat some of these challenging conditions.
 

Dietary and Botanical Repair of Adrenal Dysfunction by Dr. Alan Christianson, NMD
This presentation will teach attendees how to correct circadian cortisol rhythm with cutting edge diet and specific botanical treatments. It will focus on the results of a clinical trial that used diet therapy to correct this imbalance in a group of chronic dieters with disrupted cortisol cycles. The clinical trial will be prefaced by emerging trends from medical research showing that the global obesity crisis is larger than what many expected and not explained by calorie intake, genes, or personal habits.

Menopause Hormone Prescribing: Challenges in Case Management by Dr. Tori Hudson, ND
An overview of clinically essential menopausal HRT research including benefits and risks will be presented in order to create a platform for reviewing fundamental key prescribing issues. The presentation will expand into complicated and challenging cases and address controversies in case management of surgical menopause, hysterectomy, breast cancer patients, patients with a history of DVT or PE, women with breakthrough bleeding as well as premature ovarian failure.
 
Understanding Endocrine Disruption: Focus on Thyroid Disease by Dr. Lyn Patrick, ND
The ever-increasing data on the influence of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) on endocrine dysfunction and specifically, thyroid disease begs the question: how do we as providers of naturopathic care address the cause of thyroid disease and not just medicate the symptoms? This lecture will explore the etiology of diet, stress and environmental exposures in thyroid disorders and review case studies in the treatment of thyroid disorders using botanicals, nutrients, diet and environmental medicine.

Asthma and Migraines: These are Endocrine Disorders Too! by Dr. Amy Chadwick, ND
Endobiogenic medicine is a systems-based theory that places the endocrine system as the global manager of physiology. This presentation seeks to open the conversation regarding the role of the endocrine system in every disorder or imbalance, and in overall health and wellness. This lecture will discuss the corticotropic, gonadotropic, thyrotropic and somatotropic axes and how they play a role in the initiation and maintenance of an asthma or migraine terrain. Specifically, it will focus on the endobiogenic systems theory and how it can be applied to these and other conditions that are commonly encountered in a naturopathic practice. Treatment emphasis will be on emunctoral drainage, diet, lifestyle, and herbal interventions.

Male Sexual Dysfunction: Libido, Orgasms, Erections, Oh My! by Dr. Paul Anderson, ND
Male sexual dysfunction (low libido, anorgasmia, and erectile dysfunction) as it relates to the endocrine and other body systems will be discussed. What is the potential genesis of these issues? What potential confounding variables exist for these issues? Dr. Anderson will give a detailed presentation on employing integrative therapies including prescriptions for hormones, natural medicines, and pharmaceuticals in the treatment of male sexual dysfunction.
