DUTCH Webinar Wednesday: Estrogen Metabolism from Start to Finish
July 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Presented by Tara D. Scott, MD, FACOG, FAAFM, ABOIM, CNMP
The breakdown and excretion of estrogens is an extremely complicated process and a wide range of factors can influence it. Metabolism of estrogen occurs in several areas of the body, most frequently in the liver and gastrointestinal tissues. Beneficial modulation of estrogen metabolism can often be accomplished through dietary and lifestyle modifications such as increasing fiber and reducing fat, supplementing with phytoestrogen, losing weight, and exercising more. Unhealthy estrogen metabolism is often to blame for estrogen-related diseases and conditions.
In this webinar, Dr. Scott will:
- Review the phases of estrogen metabolism
- Discuss epigenetic effects on estrogen metabolism
- Examine suboptimal estrogen detoxification and ways to improve it
- Present cases with estrogen metabolism
