Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy: Advanced Clinical Practice

Extending on foundational concepts taught in LP3 Network’s two-day seminar “Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy: The Fundamentals”, this course aims to delve even further into the clinical application and practice of personalized hormone restoration therapy. In this clinically based course, participants will be presented eight case studies that cover complex and unique hormone-related conditions and abnormalities, including:

  • Estrogen metabolism issues
  • End-stage adrenal dysfunction
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunctions
  • Menopause
  • Anxiety
  • Food allergies
  • Estrogen dominance
  • Male hormone imbalance

For each case, participants will be asked to work through comprehensive and actual patient data, including, detailed symptom assessments, patient and family history, current and past interventions, hormone evaluations, methylation profiles, genetic testing, allergy panels, nutritional evaluations, and gastrointestinal profiles among more. Patient data will also be presented over a timeline with repeat follow-ups, creating a real-life scenario for the healthcare provider to effectively and practically learn from. Participants will be encouraged to take an evidence-based approach by applying current clinical and peer-reviewed research to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of the hormonal abnormality. Through case studies and clinical evidence, participants will gain a strong appreciation for the therapeutic benefit of hormone restoration.

With Dr. Tara D. Scott, MD, FACOG, FAAFM, ABOIM, NCMP as facilitator and subject-matter expert, participants will gain unparalleled expert advice in the niche field of personalized hormone restoration therapy. By having attended LP3 Network’s two-day prerequisite seminar, participants will already have the foundational knowledge and tools required to work through these cases, meaning for nearly exclusive time spent on practical case assessments. This interactive program will allow healthcare providers the unique opportunity to collaborate to produce patient-centered treatment regimens that take into consideration patient-specific needs, evidence-based medicine, and therapeutic treatment options (e.g., dosage strength adjustment, alternate dosage form, unique drug combinations, etc.). Through group discussions, participants will further their competency and proficiency in hormone restoration therapy and develop the skills and knowledge needed to optimize therapeutic outcomes.

Intended audience

    Pharmacists, Physicians, Naturopathic Doctors, and other healthcare providers engaged in hormone restoration therapy.

    Learning Objectives

      1. Apply a functional and systems-oriented approach to assess causation of hormone abnormalities.
      2. Interpret comprehensive patient data including symptom reviews, medical history, past and current interventions, patient monitoring and follow-ups, and biological assays (e.g., salivary and urinary hormone evaluations, methylation and genetic profiles, nutritional evaluations, and gastrointestinal assays among others) to appropriately diagnose and evaluate the root-cause of the hormone condition.
      3. Utilize and apply fundamental concepts in endocrine physiology and pathology.
      4. Evaluate patient cases that cover complex hormone-related abnormalities, including issues with estrogen metabolism, end-stage adrenal dysfunctions, disruptions in enteroendocrine signaling and gastrointestinal functions, menopause, anxiety, food allergies, and male hormone imbalances.
      5. Formulate personalized treatment regimens tailored to patient-specific needs and hormonal condition.
      6. Integrate principles of pharmaceutical compounding to optimize and customize pharmacotherapy.
      1. Review current and scientific evidence that discusses implications of estrogen metabolism, gastrointestinal dysfunction, gut-brain connection, and food allergies on hormonal health.
      2. Apply evidence-based medical approaches in the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of complex hormonal conditions.
      3. 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.
