Symptoms related to estrogen, androgens and cortisol in both men and women often require more than just including DIM or ashwagandha into the treatment plan.

Lastly, key points on the circadian rhythm will include the importance of addressing the cortisol awakening response to improve resiliency and adaptability for better health outcomes.

  • Review the 3 phases of estrogen detoxification such that practitioners feel comfortable on how to explain and test for each phase.
  • Discuss the snps involved in estrogen detoxification along with clinical pearls on optimizing each phase.
  • Review common reasons for an elevated 5a-reductase along with supplementation and lifestyle interventions to help reduce its effect to help patients struggling with symptoms.
  • Understand the cortisol awakening response along with treatment considerations for a dysfunctional circadian rhythm.
