PART 1 with Dr. Amy Day, ND

Clinical Pearls and Integrative Management of Endometriosis

Presentation Description: Endometriosis affects at least 6.3 million women and girls in the U.S. Endometriosis is caused by dysregulation of the immune and endocrine systems and can create infertility, pain and suffering for these women. Women with endometriosis are seeking alternative options, and naturopathic doctors are poised to provide them with better answers. Through recent research the underlying causes of endometriosis are becoming clearer. A caring and knowledgeable doctor, along with a comprehensive approach to evidence-based treatment, will have the best chance at helping these women manage their condition successfully. Case studies and sample treatment plans will be provided.
 
Attend this presentation to confidently:

  • Gain compassion for women with endometriosis and a deeper understanding of the patient’s experience.
  • Understand that endometriosis is a whole body disease and not merely a gynecological disorder because it involves the immune, endocrine, gastrointestinal and detoxification systems.
  • Create comprehensive naturopathic treatment plans that include diet, lifestyle modifications, pelvic physical therapy, evidence-based botanical medicine, acupuncture, nutritional supplements and more.
  • Understand the prescription of medications for endometriosis and review new drugs in development.
  • Provide informed consent on conventional and evidence-based naturopathic options to manage the complexities of this condition
