Presenter: Ben Briggs, R.Ph, IACP, CNC
Date: Wednesday, March 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Ben will be discussing thyroid dysfunction and adrenal fatigue. He will discuss the role of the thyroid and its impact on multiple body systems as a critical component of overall hormone balance. Working in conjunction with the thyroid, the adrenal glands secret hormones such as cortisol, cortisone, aldosterone adrenaline, noradrenalin, estrogen and testosterone that are essential to health and vitality and significantly affect total body function. It is impossible for a person with overworked adrenal glands to achieve optimal hormonal balance. He will also offer treatment options for regulation of the thyroid and the adrenal glands for optimization of health.
