PCOS - The Most Common Endocrine Disorder of Women: New integrative understandings and therapeutic approaches
Wednesday, October 6, 2021
Presented by Dr. Felice Gersh MD
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder of women, impacting millions of women worldwide. Once only understood as a cause of significant fertility problems, PCOS is now recognized as a major metabolic condition.
PCOS is a complex condition, involving androgen excess, high amounts of visceral fat, gut dysbiosis, an exaggerated and inappropriate cytokine response, insulin resistance, endothelial dysfunction, T-cell dysfunction, and mood and sleep disorders, in addition to menstrual and fertility concerns. This presentation will provide an in-depth overview of the newest discoveries involving PCOS, including its etiology and consequences. Dr. Gersh will provide clear protocols and tools for practitioners supporting women afflicted with PCOS, providing new hope and help in restoring their patients’ rhythms, hormones, and happiness.
- Understand why estrogen is the driver of all things metabolic and reproductive
- Recognize the mechanisms that support life and how by accessing these mechanisms, the body’s innate detoxification pathways can be enhanced and optimized
- Understand the fundamentals of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and the enormous role played by endocrine disruptors, along with the Western Diet, to exacerbate genetic tendencies
