Functional and Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy: Advanced Clinical Practice
Extending on fundamental concepts taught in LP3 Network’s two-day seminar, “Functional and Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy,” this course aims to delve even further into the clinical application and practice of personalized hormone restoration therapy. In this clinically based course, participants will be presented eight case studies that cover complex and unique hormone-related conditions and abnormalities, including:
- Estrogen metabolism issues
- End-stage adrenal dysfunction
- Gastrointestinal dysfunctions
- Food allergies
- Estrogen dominance
- Male hormone imbalance
For each case, participants will be asked to work through comprehensive patient data including detailed symptom assessments, patient
and family history, current and past interventions, hormone evaluations, methylation profiles, genetic testing, allergy panels, nutritional
evaluations, and gastrointestinal profiles among more. Patient data will also be presented over a timeline with repeat follow-ups,
establishing a thorough and complete assessment of the case at hand. Participants will be encouraged to take an integrative and functional
approach by addressing the underlying cause of the hormonal abnormality. In doing so, participants will gain a strong appreciation of the
need for personalization in hormone restoration and will learn how to appropriately prescribe and/or develop customized therapeutics.
With Dr. Tara D. Scott, MD, FACOG, FAAFM, ABOIM, NCMP as facilitator and subject-matter expert, participants will gain unparalleled
expert advice in the niche field of personalized hormone restoration therapy. By having attended LP3 Network’s two-day prerequisite
seminar, participants will already possess the foundational knowledge and tools required to work through these cases, allowing for
nearly exclusive time spent on practical case assessments. This interactive program will provide healthcare practitioners with the unique
opportunity to collaborate and produce patient-centered treatment regimens that take into consideration patient-specific needs and
pharmaceutical compounding principles (e.g., dosage strength adjustment, alternate dosage form, unique drug combinations, etc.).
Through group discussions, participants will further their competency and proficiency in hormone restoration therapy and develop the
skills and knowledge needed to optimize therapeutic outcome.

*Attendees are required to have completed LP3 Network’s two-day seminar, “Functional and Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy.” This advanced course is intended
to expand practical skills in clinical hormone restoration therapy by building upon foundational knowledge taught in the two-day prerequisite course.
- Apply a functional and systems-oriented approach to assess causation of hormone abnormalities.
- Interpret comprehensive patient data including symptom reviews, medical history, past and current interventions, patient monitoring and follow-ups, and biological assays (e.g., hormone evaluations, methylation and genetic profiles, nutritional evaluations, and gastrointestinal assays, among others) to appropriately diagnose and evaluate the root cause of the hormone condition.
- Utilize and apply fundamental concepts in endocrine physiology and pathology.
- Evaluate patient cases that include complex hormone-related abnormalities, including estrogen metabolism issues, end-stage adrenal dysfunctions, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, menopause, anxiety, food allergies, and male hormone imbalances.
- Formulate personalized hormone treatment regimens tailored to patient-specific needs.
- Integrate principles of pharmaceutical compounding to optimize and customize pharmacotherapy.
