FXMED is excited to present
"A DEEP DIVE INTO ENDOMETRIOSIS AND PCOS", Presented by Hormone Expert Lara Briden
Who is Lara Briden BSC, ND.
Lara Briden qualified as a naturopathic doctor from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1997 and has been in full-time practice ever since. She’s a passionate communicator about women’s health and alternatives to hormonal birth control and lectures widely throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Lara is also the author of the bestselling book Period Repair Manual, which is a manifesto of natural treatment for better hormones and better periods and provides practical solutions using nutrition, supplements, and natural hormones (book available from FxMed).
What will be covered?
PART 1: ENDOMETRIOSIS
In the first presentation, Lara will depart from the popular ‘estrogen dominance’ theory of endometriosis and will instead examine recent findings about the deep immune dysfunction that lies at the heart of the disease. In particular, she will explore the r ole of bacterial contamination and lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in the pathogenesis of endometriosis and will survey the effectiveness of natural immune-modulating treatments.
What you will learn.
- The link between endometriosis and SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth).
- Evidence based anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating treatments.
PART 2: POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME
In the second presentation, Lara will explore why reliance on t he Rotterdam criteria to diagnose PCOS has led to overdiagnosis, overtreatment, and unnecessary distress for patients. She will invite you to look beyond the sometimes misleading diagnosis of PCOS and instead to look at your patient and the individual fac tors driving her anovulation and androgen excess.
What you will learn.
- Why PCOS cannot be diagnosed by ultrasound.
- How to distinguish between PCOS and hypothalamic amenorrhea.
- Five functional ‘types’ of PCOS according to underlying driving factors with treatment strategies for each type.
