Thyroid Health Masterclass: Naturopathic Interventions Across Three Critical Life Stages In Women

Research demonstrates that a woman has a 10-fold increased risk of developing a thyroid condition, mainly in part due to the unique hormonal events throughout her lifetime. In this masterclass, Tara will take a deep dive into the unique stages in a woman’s life that not only require thyroid hormone adequacy but are key times for thyroid conditions to develop.

Integria Practitioner Symposium 2024: Systems Endocrinology – An Integrative Approach

If you skew the endocrine system, you lose the pathways to self. When endocrine patterns change, it alters the way you think and feel. One shift in the pattern tends to trip another – Hilary Mantel

The intricate coordination of human physiology relies on the seamless collaboration of multiple systems, each performing a distinct role in maintaining health and homeostasis. Among these, the endocrine system is recognised as a fundamental system that coordinates complex physiological processes.

Disruption of this intricately balanced system can result in significant health complications, leading to conditions affecting metabolism, stress response, and reproduction. Given the widespread occurrence and impact of these associated conditions, managing disorders related to the endocrine system is of significant clinical importance.

While these conditions differ in their manifestations and origins, they are linked by a common factor of hormonal dysregulation, which can profoundly affect an individual’s health and overall well-being. Recent advancements, innovations, and breakthroughs in managing disorders related to endocrine health have given integrative practitioners exciting new opportunities for treatment.

Join us on 17 and 18 August in Brisbane or via live stream where an esteemed panel of holistic practitioners, researchers and experts in the field of integrative endocrinology will discuss the following key outcomes.

Dates: Saturday 17 – Sunday 18 August, 2024
Type of Event: Face to Face Practitioner Seminar or Webinar
Organiser: Integria
Cost: Attendee and Live Stream options available
CPD Points: 10

Key Learning Outcomes:

  • Systems-based approach to addressing metabolic dysfunction and altered stress response
