Sex, Lies and Hormones: Applied Endocrinology
By: Texas Chiropractic College

Course Description

We invite you to join us this October in Plano, TX for the 29th Annual IAACN Scientific Symposium “Sex, Lies, and Hormones: Applied Endocrinology.” We will have fewer presenters this year to allow for more detailed, thought provoking, and clinically researched information. Tyrone B. Hayes, PhD. professor of integrative biology at UC Berkeley and often referred to as the “The Frog Man”, is a leading researcher and expert in the field of endocrine disruptors. He has spent years conducting both laboratory and field studies in the U.S. and Africa on the demasculinization of frogs due to the invasion of chemical hormones. He will update us on current endocrine disruption research, share his story of industry attempts to cover up his findings, and describe how xenoestrogens and synthetic hormones not only negatively affect human health, but also create environmental devastation to plant and animal species. Lisa Everett Andersen, holistic clinical pharmacist and CCN, will share her 40 plus years of clinical experience and endocrine study, including primary literature and textbooks of biochemistry, endocrinology, and physiology. She will review the research on psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology which is pivotal in understanding the physiological and microphysiological roles of the mitochondria and specific hormone molecules in our connectedness. This discussion garners respect for the use of endocrine supplementation as well as the appearance of xenobiotics in the environment. Besides menopause, PMS, and hysterectomies, Lisa will examine the use of hormone augmentation in conditions such as infertility, migraines, pre-term labor, preeclampsia, postpartum depression, deficient luteal phase, breast feeding, and erectile disfunction. Adrenal and thyroid dysfunction and their subsequent hormonal support and balancing will be covered. She will also share homeopathic remedies for dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, PMS, menopause, parturition and mastitis. Lisa’s first book, “Learning to Thrive in a Toxic World: A Reference for Healthcare Practitioners and Patients,” is the textbook for this year’s symposium. Dr. Russel Reiter, neuroendocrinologist, author, and professor of cell systems and anatomy at UT Health San Antonio, is well known as The Melatonin Expert. He will present why melatonin's sleep-enhancing effects are vastly superior to standard medications, the strength and weaknesses of various melatonin preparations including time-release formulas, sublingual tablets, and fast-release tablets, who should not take melatonin and why, the cancer and cardiac protective roles of melatonin, melatonin’s mood altering effects, and many other fascinating insights on the physiology of melatonin
