Navigating Fragile Ground: IE/HAES aligned interventions for the treatment of female hormone diseases, disorders, syndromes and conditions
June 22 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
Presented by Robyn Nohling, FNP, RDN
Is it the chicken or the egg? While diet culture can be a major contributor to hormonal abnormalities in females, many current treatment recommendations in both the conventional and integrative medicine/nutrition worlds contribute to the development of eating disorders and disordered eating. Because of this, treatment recommendations can be more harmful than helpful, making a IE and HAES approach imperative. In this webinar we will navigate this fragile ground in order to understand the underlying causes of female hormone abnormalities and the current research, explore best practices for treatment, identify interventions that could be harmful and learn practical strategies you can implement into your clinical practice right away.
- Participants will be able to understand the underlying biological, psychological and sociological causes of female hormone conditions
- Participants will be able to understand the current literature on various female hormone conditions and differentiate evidence-based research versus pseudo-science.
- Participants will be able to differentiate between helpful and harmful interventions and recommendations in the treatment of female hormone conditions
- Participants will be able to identify IE and HAES aligned treatment options for various female hormone disorders, diseases and syndromes.
- Participants will learn practical strategies for implementing IE and HAES aligned treatment options for female hormone conditions in their own practice setting.
