Introducing DUTCH Cycle Mapping Plus

July 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The DUTCH Cycle Mapping™ PLUS maps estrogen and progesterone through the monthly menstrual cycle while adding the comprehensiveness of all the hormone metabolites along with the cortisol awakening response (CAR).

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.

Unhealthy estrogen metabolism is…

Stress & Chronic Disease: The Role of the Community Pharmacist as a First Responder

September 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

In these trying times, our bodies are very familiar with the stress response - a cascade of hormones from the hypothalamus and the pituitary and adrenal glands. The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) is involved in regulating body temperature, digestion, the immune system, mood, sexuality, and energy usage. It is also a component of the fight-or-flight response to stressors and the release of stress hormones like cortisol. A growing body of scientific evidence has expanded our knowledge of the role the…

Hormones, Pregnancy, and Postpartum Depression (PPD)

September 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

During pregnancy, estrogen and progesterone increase significantly. Then, in the first 24 hours after childbirth, estrogen and progesterone levels drop rapidly and continue decreasing to the levels they were before pregnancy. Researchers surmise these changes in hormones may lead to depression, just as smaller changes in hormones can affect a woman’s mood before her…
