Course Detail: NCP06 - Nutritional Strategies to Optimize the HPA Axis
Every day practitioners treat a myriad of seemingly unrelated imbalances. Some patients respond while others do not despite correct diagnosis and proper treatment. One contributor to the response failure may be on-going stress.
The American Psychological Association (APA) reports almost 80% of patients experience physical symptoms due to stress. Modern science is now illustrating the interconnection of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and subsequent neuroendocrine signals to numerous health conditions.
Learn to recognize when HPA axis function is a factor, the appropriate assessments, and corresponding interventions to support overall general health. Lifestyle and nutritional interventions to support the HPA axis will be highlighted.
