Presented by Laura Neville, ND
Exposure to estrogen is a known potential risk factor in breast pathology. While saliva hormone levels elucidate tissue exposure, this may only be a part of the breast health story. The rest of the story involves the metabolism and excretion of hormones. This lecture will touch on estrogen metabolism and the estrobolome, highlighting urinary hormone and metabolite markers of breast health and detoxification. The clinician will gain an understanding of phase 1, 2, and 3 metabolism, leaving with clinical pearls regarding lifestyle, nutrition, order of treatment, and nutraceutical interventions to assist in optimal breast health.
