Joint, Thyroid & Gut Health in Women: Addressing Underlying Immunological Factors‡
Presented by: Felice Gersh, M.D.+
Wednesday, October 18, 2017
A woman’s immune system differs from that of a man, and these differences can affect tolerance of self-tissue. During pregnancy, immunity is suppressed to tolerate fetal tissue; after menopause, immune-balancing hormone levels decline. In clinical practice, women comprise up to 80% of cases of immune-related joint, connective tissue, thyroid and gut health. In this webinar, award-winning integrative gynecologist Felice Gersh, M.D.+, will discuss the etiology of these common clinical presentations, and which assessment methods, lifestyle changes and nutritional modalities are most valuable in promoting tissue tolerance and systemic immune balance.‡
- Review sex differences in immune function and how this relates to clinical care‡
- Understand estrogen’s influence on immune balance and the associated implications of pregnancy and menopause‡
- Learn how sleep cycle and meal timing strategies along with key nutritional modalities can make a profound difference in immune homeostasis‡
