Applied Endocrinology CEHAE

Instructor: Dr. Rucha Rege BHSc, ND

In this seven-session course, we will focus on hormones and their role in health and disease. Hormones are important in controlling all body activities including growth, metabolism, coping with stress, sleep cycles, digestion and reproduction. Some hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, melatonin and DHEA are commonly supplemented while others can be stimulated by appropriate nutrition. Many diseases are directly or indirectly affected by hormones including diabetes, hypo/hyperthyroidism, osteoporosis as well as the growth of cancers such as breast and prostate. Other topics covered include ketogenic diets, environmental estrogens, PMS, menopause, BPH, and appetite regulation by leptin and ghrelin.
