WEBINAR SERIES INFORMATION

Understanding when and how to use bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be tricky as one size does not fit all. Learn from a physician who has practiced on the cutting edge using both environmental and hormone replacement therapy to inform his treatment in both men and women with hormone related conditions. Because Ty Vincent practices both environmental and integrative medicine, he has a unique understanding of hormones and has used them in his practice with specific protocols that have proven safe and useful in even the sickest patients. 

This course will include hormone replacement in younger men, a growing problem as endocrine-disrupting chemicals become commonplace in both men and women, where these xenobiotics can prevent adrenal production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Dr. Vincent will also cover adrenal and thyroid hormones with a perspective that covers nutrient deficiencies and their role in glandular function.

And, as any physician who comes from Alaska and pays attention, he has tremendous experience with vitamin D deficiency and replacement protocols to treat specific disease conditions and maintain health. Dr. Vincent will also cover the clinical use of growth hormone, melatonin, and oxytocin where replacement of these hormones has caused surprising results in chronic diseases. And finally, he will cover an integrated approach to the use of insulin in diabetes.

This is not your standard basic hormone replacement course, it is definitely "thinking outside the box".
