Recorded Webinar: Food as Lifestyle Medicine for Hormonal Health
This webinar was presented on Tuesday, August 30, 2022, from 2-3 pm ET.
Let’s face it: hormones are powerful players in overall health and wellness. As the endocrine system’s tools, hormones are your body’s allies in regulating a myriad of functions, from metabolism and energy levels to reproduction and growth to human connection and stress and sleep cycles, and not to mention appetite. So, how can you keep these important chemical messengers functioning properly? Hint: your lifestyle is a key factor in balancing and coordinating the activities of your hormones.
Take an evidence-based dive into the wonderful world of hormones and how food – among other lifestyle factors – can affect the harmonious functioning of your hormones for the better. Join Vicki Shanta Retelny, RDN for a webinar focused on the vital hormones (insulin, cortisol, melatonin, and oxytocin, to name a few) and how lifestyle – and in particular, what we eat and drink – may help to keep these hormones in sync. Whether you are a brand-new RD or a seasoned veteran, Vicki will provide you with cutting-edge information on how to help your clients keep their hormones in good health.
After completing this activity, nutrition professionals will be better able to:
- Define the role of hormones in the body.
- Identify key hormones and describe how they contribute to health.
- Educate clients on the lifestyle factors that affect hormone levels.
- Recommend the use of food as a lifestyle medicine to help clients balance hormone levels.
