Part I: Mastering the Protocols for Optimization of Hormone Replacement Therapy - August 2018


This course has been approved for 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, 20 Nursing Contact ours (20 pharmacologic hours), 20 Hours Pharmacy Credit (knowledge based)

As a healthcare practitioner, have you struggled with patients who face gradual, steady decline in their overall health?

Do any of your patients try to lose weight, eat right, exercise . . . but never seem to get results?

Do you have patients with out-of-control numbers - cholesterol, LDL, C-reactive protein, blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1C?

Are statins for hyperlipidemia, metformin for insulin resistance and diabetes, blood pressure drugs making them better or worse? Are they really reducing their cardiac and metabolic risks?

Are they feeling as good as they ever have?

Are your female patients in menopause still suffering from hot flashes and night sweats? Are they sleeping soundly 8 hours a night? Are they free of paralyzing anxiety and hopeless depression?

Are your male patients experiencing low energy, muscle loss, and sexual dysfunction?

Transform Your patients’ lives By Optimizing Their Hormones.
In this course, world-renowned hormone expert, Dr. Neal Rouzier, teaches you everything you need to know about hormones and why your patients need you to help them optimize theirs for maximum health and wellness for the long-term.

The Prevailing View On Hormones
A common perspective of hormone replacement is embraced by many physician groups like the American College of Obstetetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), as well as the US Food and Drug Administration. This approach encourages practitioners to:
  • provide the lowest dose of a specific hormone to relieve symptoms
  • treat patients with hormones for the shortest time possible - often an arbitrary 5 years
  • view hormone replacement therapy as suspicious, unnecessary, even dangerous
  • avoid prescribing hormones for disease prevention

Where does this view come from?
Dr. Rouzier anchors his intense, 2-day mini-residency on an overview of the Women’s Health Initiative study - the single most influential study about hormones ever published.
  • who the patients were that received hormone replacement therapy
  • what specific hormones these patients received
  • where the lay public and the media have blown the WHI results out of proportion
  • when hormones were used to treat patients in the study
  • why the study is fundamentally flawed, yet widely cited as a reason to avoid hormones
  • how conclusions have impacted the health of women for over 15 years
Hormone Optimization vs. Hormone Replacement
Worldlink Medical uses the data in the medical literature to support the concept of hormone optimization, as opposed to hormone replacement. Hormone optimization is the quest to get patients’ hormone levels within optimal ranges, for as many hormones as possible.

Hormones Covered
In the course, you’ll receive a comprehensive overview of multiple hormones that can be optimized. Dr. Rouzier goes over lab tests, signs and symptoms, dosing, and what pitfalls to be aware of in optimizing:
  • estradiol
  • progesterone
  • testosterone
  • T3 and T4 thyroid hormones (along with TSH)
  • growth hormone
  • vitamin D
  • melatonin
  • DHEA
  • pregnenolone

Normal vs. Optimal Hormone Levels
Dr. Rouzier emphasizes the difference between “normal” (age-adjusted) hormone levels and “optimal” levels, correlating to levels found in young adults. Rouzier dives deep into the medical research to contend that optimal hormone levels are the most effective tool to help patients get healthy and stay that way. He shows how optimal hormones help you:
Relieve symptoms in male and female patients:
  • eliminate hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness for women in menopause
  • decrease sexual dysfunction in men and women
  • improve patients’ sleep, energy, libido, and quality of life
            Strengthen Muscle and Bones
  • protect men and women from the frailty and broken bones of osteoporosis
  • help men and women gain muscle strength and stamina for more exercise benefit
Go beyond statins in reducing cardiovascular risks: 
  • reduce dyslipidemia
  • improve carotid artery calcium scores
  • lower inflammatory cytokines
  • optimal hormones are proven to reduce cardiovascular risk
Protect patients from metabolic syndrome and diabetes:
  • provide realistic ways for patients to lose visceral fat and reduce basal metabolic index (BMI) (even if they've struggled in the past)
  • reverse insulin resistance
  • lower blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C
  • reduce diabetes risk
Prevent senile dementia:
  • help patients stay sharp and independent longer
  • keep patients healthy and active so they can live the life they want

Worldlink's Part I Course is Unique, Comprehensive, and Practical 
No other program includes the comprehensive, in-depth analysis of evidence supporting hormone optimization that this course provides.

As a practitioner, you may walk into Worldlink’s Part I course on Friday, skeptical of the role of hormones in health. You may feel resolute in sticking with standard of care that dismisses the idea of hormones for disease prevention. You may take a “We’ll see” attitude to Rouzier’s hormone optimization approach. 

That’s good and healthy. Dr. Rouzier welcomes opposing viewpoints and is always up for a challenge.

This course is not only comprehensive, it’s also extremely practical. Neal Rouzier teaches you the “nuts and bolts” of optimizing your patients’ hormones. He helps you understand the why’s of optimal hormones, but also gives you specific instruction on the hows.

At the end of the course on Sunday afternoon, you'll recognize the overwhelming support in the research for hormone optimization. 

You’ll also walk away with the practical knowledge that allows you to get started on Monday morning, optimizing your first patient’s hormones.

Get answers:
Worldlink Medical is committed to making a difference in the lives of your patients.

We’ve created an exclusive practitioner forum, where physicians can ask questions and discuss difficult clinical situations with their peers. This valuable resource is available to past attendees of Worldlink Hormone Optimization courses. Practitioners with years of experience, as well as Dr. Rouzier himself, are active on the forum, lending a helping hand to physicians just getting started.

Get Credit:
In addition to the scientific and practical knowledge you’ll receive from Dr. Rouzier’s course, you’ll also earn continuing medical education credit. Worldlink is fully accredited in several healthcare disciplines to provide credit for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists.
Advisory:  The concepts and practice taught are evidence based (we follow the guidelines from the medical studies that prove efficacy) in contrast to what is taught by some other groups that is not evidence based (no justifiable scientific reason for what they are teaching and that which is often contrary to evidence based medicine).
