The Role of Hormones in Mental Health
Assessing and treating hormonal imbalances can be a powerful tool in an integrative, whole body approach to mental health care. Stress, addictions, nutritional deficiencies, menopause, medications and many other factors can impact hormone levels. Additionally, hormone levels directly and indirectly affect mood, energy levels, sleep and overall resiliency. In this presentation we will be exploring the specific ways in which hormones can play an important role in mental health treatment.
- Identify clinical relationships between hormones and mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, pain, insomnia and fatigue.
- Explain the complex relationships between stress and hormones including cortisol, thyroid hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
- Discuss strategies to improve patient outcomes by addressing hormonal imbalances.
