Course Description and Objectives 

This course is designed to provide the healthcare professional an introductory review of the concepts regarding thyroid physiology, assessment, health maintenance (including dietary, lifestyle, and nutritional support), and how to identify cases that may need to be referred for further consultation and/or evaluation. The typical recommendation of iodine, thyroid glandulars, tyrosine, or bioidentical thyroid hormones in many cases does not address the complexity of thyroid issues in the current population. New research indicates that thyroid disorders today may be a result of food-related autoimmune reactions, as well as endocrine imbalances, environmental haptens, cytokine surges, and medication reactions. Upon the completion of the seminar, attendees will be able to: 

  1. Recognize 24 common and newly highlighted patterns in thyroid imbalances
  2. Understand the clinical implications of thyroid-immune-nervous system-endocrine crosstalk
  3. Understand the impact of thyroid hormones on every major physiological process
  4. Conduct a step-by-step approach to a thyroid physical exam
  5. Understand important dietary factors
  6. Identify cases that need to be referred out for further consultation and/or evaluation
