Los Angeles, CA – September 6-7, 2019

September 6, 2019 to September 7, 2019

The roles that hormones play in body physiology and pathology are intricate, complex, and multifaceted. These communicatory molecules are central players in the maintenance and regulation of multi-organ systems and functions, including digestion, metabolism, sexual reproduction, lactation, growth, development, sleep, and stress, among much more. Hormonal actions are specific as well as interactive and diverse. With their critical roles in whole-body homeostatic maintenance, even the most subtle deviation in hormonal levels has the potential to produce vast multi-system changes that can clinically emerge as a variety of symptoms. To further complex the matter of hormonal systems, there exists substantial variations in individual hormone levels required for maintaining individual set-points. What may be normal for one, may be abnormal for another.

In this program, participants will gain an appreciation for the individuality of hormonal systems and the need for personalized medicine tailored to an individual’s unique clinical profile. This course emphasizes a holistic and functional approach towards medicine that involves addressing the underlying cause of disease using a systems-oriented concept and multimodal therapeutics. In doing so, participants will learn about the need for customized pharmacotherapeutics and how this can be achieved through compounding pharmacy. Specifically, participants will learn about the opportunities in compounding as it relates to hormone restoration and nutraceutical therapy for hormone-related conditions, including menopause, thyroid dysfunctions, adrenal dysfunctions, and male/female sexual dysfunctions, among others.

Participants will learn how to uniquely design treatment regimens that include customized dosage strengths, dosage forms, delivery systems, and combinations. This program will allow healthcare providers and pharmacists with the unique opportunity to collaborate together to produce a patient-centered treatment regimen that is tailored to the individual patient. Participants will be presented with clinical evidence on the benefits and risks of hormone restoration therapy and how it can be optimally applied. All course material will be put to practice through interactive case studies that involve assessing patient clinical profiles and devising appropriate and customized therapeutic solutions.

Well put-together seminars on hormones. The facilitators approach hormones from a truly holistic perspective, incorporating natural supplements, nutraceuticals, diet, and vitamins along with hormones to achieve the best results for the patient.

Barbara Rush
Physician, California

I have attended numerous other hormone/BHRT conferences and LP3 Network’s is by far the best I've seen. I have never seen such a well-laid-out conference with defined learning goals and a start-to-finish approach with concrete examples and working plans. I highly recommended my Naturopathic Doctor colleagues and pharmacists to attend.

Kim Bretz
Naturopathic Doctor, Ontario

Taking the Hormone Management course has radically changed and enhanced my pharmacy practice. I am a prescribing pharmacist and I have created positive relationships with physicians who refer their patients to me for review and recommendations on oral and transdermal preparations. I provide the physician with a report of my recommendations and also create an individualized preparation for the patient. The patient will return to my pharmacy for follow-up and possible adjustments. My network of referring physicians is growing and based on success, so are recommendations.

David Robertson
Pharmacist, Alberta

Most of my patients are women going through menopause and difficult times in their lives. This program helped me understand how the entire endocrine system is involved in the process of menopause, and not just the ovaries. I am able to explain the patient's symptoms better and prescribe more efficiently. The program enhanced my knowledge of hormone compounding and made me confident to prescribe compounded HRT.

Erica Alex
Physician, British Columbia

Thank you so much for the seminar, it was wonderful.  I've now taken 5 weekend-long hormone conferences since getting licensed to prescribe and this was the best one.  Very clinically relevant and integrative, I enjoyed working through the cases with the other practitioners and the pharmacists at my table. I look forward to doing more hormonal work with the new information.

Carrie Meszaros
Naturopathic Doctor, Ontario

After attending the seminar, I am better able to advise prescribers on routes of delivery, methods of testing and follow-up care. I am also better able to explain therapeutic options to patients, for both medical prescription products and supplements. It was also a good opportunity to network with local practitioners and to work together in groups, which was very nice!
