This advanced level course discusses the endocrine system from the production of hormones by glands through to the interactions with their specific receptors and the biochemical processes that ensue. The functions of these hormones are analysed as well as the mode of action on their target organs, glands and cells of the body.
Hormones act as chemical messengers with far-reaching action that are essential to the regulation of our physiology and behaviour. This course seeks to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of the various hormonal systems of the body along with the different types of hormones and their specific regulatory functions. Causes and consequences of hormonal imbalances and dysfunctions on health and wellbeing are explained and clinical manifestations are presented complete with full associated balance protocols.
This course provides students with:
- Detailed information and balancing techniques for the 128 hormones and the 14 hormonal systems they pertain to, namely the hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal, sex, calcium balance, thyroid, gastro-entero digestive, thymus, blood sugar/pancreas, prostaglandins, adrenal corticoids, adrenal medulla, plasma and cell growth factors systems;
- In depth explanation of the 4 major types of hormones, the polypeptides, fatty acids, amino acids and steroids, and their specific characteristics and modes of action;
- Neurobiology of stress and the effects of stress hormones such as cortisol along with balancing techniques;
Specialised treatments for the regulation of the menstrual cycle and related mood disorders, pregnancy hormones, neonatal and premenopausal disorders and gonadal steroid hormones on the central nervous system.
