The anticipation is building as we gear up for the biggest weekend in Chicago – A4M’s September event between September 29th and October 1st. Practitioners from across the country will gather in the birthplace of anti-aging medicine for this highly anticipated event.
For over 30 years, A4M has led the charge in advancing functional medicine, integrative hormone therapy, and the anti-aging specialty. The diverse curriculum of this symposium promises to continue that legacy, featuring the latest research and insights from experts in numerous fields.
Attendees can look forward to discovering cutting-edge techniques to implement into their practices, hearing first-hand experiences from fellow Chicago practitioners, and tapping into the excitement and energy of the A4M community.
With unparalleled learning and networking opportunities, this weekend promises to provide immense value to practitioners of all specialties. And there is still time to join your colleagues and industry leaders to exchange knowledge, make connections, and reinvigorate your practice!
The field of women’s hormone health is rapidly evolving as emerging research sheds light on the intricate complexities of hormonal fluctuations throughout the female lifespan. Striking and maintaining optimal endocrine balance throughout the reproductive years and menopausal transition remains a delicate objective at the forefront of functional anti-aging medicine.
However, ongoing scientific discoveries have spearheaded remarkable advances in evidence-based hormone therapies and bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) interventions designed to restore balance. Recent innovations in drug formulations, timing, delivery methods, and dosing protocols allow for increasingly personalized therapeutic strategies that not only effectively address cumbersome symptoms but also promote long-term well-being during perimenopause, menopause, and beyond.
Systemic inflammation, often called chronic low-grade inflammation, can persist for long periods without apparent symptoms making it difficult to identify and manage. Common signs of inflammation, such as fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, skin changes, and cognitive issues, may often be mistaken for other conditions leaving many patients without a precise diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
Chronic systemic inflammation contributes to the vast majority of chronic health conditions, including autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, hormone imbalances, and other serious health issues. As awareness of its role in disease pathogenesis grows, an expanding body of research furthers our understanding of the numerous and intricate connections between inflammation and aspects of health.
