Hormones, Pregnancy, and Postpartum Depression (PPD)

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

An Integrative Approach to Breast Cancer

October 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

There seems to be an increase incidence of premenopausal breast cancer in the United States. Traditionally, HRT has been blamed as a causative factor and also genetics with BRAC 1 and 2. However, these premenopausal patients are not on hormone therapy and many are negative for BRAC genes. Dr. Tara Scott hypothesizes there are other single nucleotide pleomorphisms (SNPs) which put a patient at increased risk of breast cancer, namely MTHFR 677, MTHFR 1298, and COMT. MTHFR and COMT genes…
