About the event

This seminar will allow to deepen your understanding of hormonal physiology and endocrine pathology.

The mechanism of the communication pathways between hormones, immune et nervous system will be presented.

This class will provide elements of clinical handling of the most frequent endocrine issues.

You will learn to identify nonpharmacological elements than can trigger hormonal unbalance and suggest a more supportive lifestyle for the neuro-immuno-endocrine system.

Environmental disruptors such as diet will be better understood as contributing factors to hormonal unbalance

You will have supervised practice of specific and global technics to address the endocrine system.

The course will provide tools to understand elements of allopathic notions in endocrinology in order to create a better interdisciplinary collaboration.
