This seminar is a workshop utilizing a case study approach designed to help physicians and practitioners successfully and knowledgably treat their age management patients. This intense 2 day mini-residency teaches everything you should know about hormones, the various types of hormones, both good and bad, the synthetic (non-human) vs. pharmaceutical bioidentical (human identical) vs. compounded  (human identical but not FDA tested or approved). You’ll get the real nuts and bolts needed to prescribe hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which ones to use and which ones to avoid, how much, when and why. You’ll learn about monitoring and adjusting HRT through case presentations, literature reviews, and open discussions.  Emphasis is placed on understanding the difference between normal and optimal levels of hormones based on our medical studies.

The Part One Course involves a scientific literature review of HRT, case presentations, then case management requiring audience participation. The first day analyzes medical studies as they pertain to optimizing hormones for both men and women, why we do what we do, the benefits of HRT, and the literature support for optimization of hormone levels as opposed to simple replacement.   Day two involves extensive review of 100 cases that involve laboratory evaluation, then diagnosing, prescribing, adjusting, troubleshooting, and discussing hormone therapies for different scenarios for both men and women. We will then review the various dosing regimens, side effects, precautions, complications, and tricks of the trade. Your practice of hormone replacement therapy will be based on peer-reviewed medical research and a wealth of clinical experience. This is the most comprehensive course taught on this subject, designed to give you practical information and skills that you can use on a daily basis. The curriculum is an evidence-based program on preventive medicine designed to enhance your diagnostic and prescribing skills when optimizing hormones for both men and women. 

Although most practitioners are fully aware of the need to replace hormones in cases of sub-normal hormone levels, most have not been trained to optimize hormone levels if the baseline hormone level is normal.  Many attendees frequently inquire why a patient is treated with various hormones when the baseline lab test indicates “normal.”  Just as confusing is the realization that the medical literature supports that normal is simply not optimal.  A multitude of studies support optimization of all hormones regardless of the baseline levels, both for maintenance of quality of life and for future health benefits.  In addition, the medical literature demonstrates that optimization of hormones results in relief of symptoms, improvement in well-being, and a decrease in morbidity and mortality by attaining levels in the upper range of normal.  It is imperative that practitioners understand both the need and benefit of optimization, what levels are considered to be optimal, as well as have command of the literature that supports it.  One important aspect of this course is the extensive review of the medical literature that provides the credence and support as to why we optimize with certain hormones as well as avoid the use of non-isomolecular hormones. Remember that normal is definitely not optimal when it comes to hormone replacement and this applies to both men and women.

This is the most popular course taught on BHRT, designed to give you information and skills required to best prepare you to know everything you will need to know to start Monday morning.  It will forever change your practice and the lives of your patients.  The curriculum is an evidence-based program on preventive medicine designed to enhance all you need to know to start BHRT as well as business forms, consents, and HRT booklets to educate patients on the importance of hormone replacement. Although the title may be confusing as to the course content, the curriculum is an evidence-based program on preventive medicine designed to enhance your diagnostic and prescribing skills when optimizing hormones for both men and women. 

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).
