The seminar will two topics for an hour each with a tea break in between. The topics covered are as follows:
1 ) The Rhythms of Women: Understanding the link between Estrogen, the Circadian Rhythm, and Metabolic Health
This lecture will explore the foundational understandings of the Circadian Rhythm, and of the role played by estrogen in maintaining its proper functioning. The role of peripheral clocks, particularly of the liver and of the gut microbiome, will be explained, and the benefits of specific nutritional therapy, time restricted eating, intermittent fasting, and specific nutraceuticals will be presented so as to enable all attendees to implement effective protocols to facilitate their women patients achieving and maintaining metabolic health.
2) Women, Hearts, and Hormones: New understandings of the foundations of female cardiovascular health and the impact of menopause
This lecture will explain the impact of estrogen on the health and function of all of the structures related to cardiovascular function – the myocardium, mitochondria, the cardiac electrical system, all aspects of the vasculature, immune cells, the gut microbiome and gut integrity, and even the Master Clock regulating the Circadian Rhythm. The critical role of nitric oxide on arterial endothelial health and on the myocardium will be reviewed and management of reduced levels of nitric oxide will be presented, including both nutritional therapies and supplement use.
