About this course
Hormonal birth control is a powerful drug that significantly affects many aspects of female metabolism. In this webinar you will learn that hormonal contraception is affecting all of your female patients taking them, how they are affecting these women, and what alternatives you can offer.
The conventional approach to period health is to shut down hormones with contraception such as the Pill, implant, injection and Nuvaring. Hormonal birth control does not fix period problems, they only mask them. They also cause troubling and potentially serious side effects such as depression, weight gain, microbiome disturbance, and permanent loss of libido. Emerging research is also suggesting long term impacts on insulin resistance, fat mass, diabetes and bone mass. Women deserve much better.
Join naturopathic doctor Lara Briden for a comprehensive survey of the side effects of hormonal birth control, and the challenges that patients frequently encounter when they try to stop. Lara will discuss alternative contraceptive methods, as well as natural solutions for conditions such as post-Pill acne and PCOS.
