WOMEN'S HEALTH WORKSHOP: The unique challenges faced at different life stages Sun 2 Dec 2018, PERTH

Back due to popular demand. Don't miss attending this interactive Clinical Workshop!

Throughout life, women face unique health issues largely governed by the fluctuations in hormone levels, particularly during pregnancy and menopause. Consequently, many women struggle with mood disorders, weight management and associated metabolic disease, fertility issues, autoimmune disease and sleep problems.

This workshop is designed for integrative practitioners to gain an in depth understanding of these challenges and learn how to investigate and implement therapeutic strategies to optimise patient health and wellbeing.

Using the 'integrative' approach specific areas of women's health will be covered including pregnancy and fertility issues, menopausal transitions, PCOS and metabolic health, mood disorders and autoimmune disease.

  • ​Women's Health is a vital part of any practice. 
  • Increase your MEDucation and help your female patients with their health needs and concerns.
  • Join us for one full day of face-to-face learning exploring the many facets of Women's Health at all ages & stages of life.​​

LEARNING OBJECTIVES ​    

  • Understand the physiological abnormalities related to common women's health issues and be updated with the latest research on integrative approaches to optimise patient health  ·      
  • Uncover the many underlying contributing factors to these conditions including gut health and detoxification which can result in hormone imbalances ·      
  •  Using the 'omics' approach to help diagnose and identify biochemical vulnerabilities which can then be used to formulate therapeutic strategies.
  • Compare the integrative and functional approach to patient care with the use of lifestyle and supplemental protocols to conventional therapies     
  • ​Discuss clinical applications of this knowledge through the presentation of interactive case studies.​

This 1 full day of interactive face-to-face learning, will exploring the many facets of women's health at all ages & stages of life.
