Hormones and Mental Health
Presenter: Peter Bongiorno. ND, LAc
While many psychiatrists do not consider endocrinology in the purview, there is no question that you cannot adequately treat anxiety, depression or other mental health concerns without a keen understanding of how hormones affect psychiatric balance. In this class, Dr. Bongiorno will take you through each major hormone, and connect each to neurotransmitter balance, stress response, and relationship to other hormones. This tour will likely make you think differently and more completely about the role of hormonal individuality and their interplay. Finally, he will describe how different hormone scenarios can be effectively treated using naturopathic and functional medicine modalities. You will leave this lecture with a clear understanding of hormonal balancing remedies you can use with your next patient.
