Functional Hormone Replacement Therapy – United Kingdom

Paddington, LND GB
October 4, 2019 to October 6, 2019

The roles that hormones play in the body are intricate, complex, and multifaceted. 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. Addressing hormonal conditions involves getting at the root cause of the abnormality and tailoring to individual hormonal levels and responses. In this two-part educational activity that includes a 9-Hour Home Study and 3-Day Live Event, participants will apply integrative and evidence-based approaches to recognise, diagnose, and tailor treatments for various hormone-related conditions, including:


  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Perimenopause
  • Menopause
  • Thyroid Dysfunctions
  • Adrenal Dysfunctions
  • Male and Female Sexual Dysfunctions
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Oestrogen Metabolism Issues
  • Gastrointestinal Dysfunctions
  • Anxiety
  • Food Allergies
  • Oestrogen Dominance


With world renowned facilitators, Dr Tara D. Scott, MD, FACOG, FAAFM, ABOIM, NCMP and Dr Ken Speidel, BS Pharm, PharmD, PRh, FIACP, FACA, participants will gain unparalleled education in the niche field of functional hormone replacement therapy.



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.

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!

Robyn Seipp
Pharmacist, British Columbia

Intended audience

Pharmacists, Physicians, Naturopathic Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and other healthcare providers engaged in hormone replacement therapy.

Learning Objectives

  1. Interpret the hormone cascade and the impact of exogenous and endogenous factors on other endocrine axes and neighbouring digestive and immune systems.
  2. Evaluate the clinical evidence describing the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy, including the use of synthetic versus bioidentical hormones and various routes of delivery.
  3. Recognise critical indicators from patient biological assays, signs and symptoms that aid in the identification and diagnosis of hormonal conditions.
  4. Review current scientific evidence that discusses implications of oestrogen metabolism, gastrointestinal dysfunction, gut-brain connection, and food allergies on hormonal health.
  5. Utilise empirical evidence to support personalised and tailored approaches for the treatment of perimenopause, menopause, andropause, thyroid dysfunctions, adrenal dysfunctions, metabolic syndrome, PCOS, and sexual dysfunction.
  6. Interpret comprehensive patient data including symptom reviews, medical history, past and current interventions, patient monitoring and follow-ups, and biological assays (e.g., hormone evaluations, methylation and genetic profiled, nutritional evaluations, and gastrointestinal assays, among others) to appropriately diagnose and evaluate the root cause of the hormone condition.
