LiveWell with Nakheel hosts well-being initiatives every month at different locations, giving access to knowledge shared by global experts. This month, Co-curator of LiveWell with Nakheel Irina Sharma will talk about hormones with guest speakers, Ann Marie McQueen and Dr. Sofie Skogen.
Hormones govern almost everything from hydration, hunger or sleep to reproduction, emotions, and mood. Targeted at both men and women, the two-hour talk will cover symptoms, diagnosis, integrative treatments and approach for cramps, menopause, mood swings, depression, acne, hotflash, thyroid and other organ issues, weight gain, andropause, hormone replacement, infertility, along with a question and answers session.
We will discuss the importance and reasons for hormone replacement therapy and its different approaches for both men and women.
Irina Sharma and Dr. Sofie will address the Hormone Intelligence Plan - which covers six root causes that impact both men and women's hormonal health and different stage cycles. The talk will address the six core pillars — nutrition, inflammation, environmental factors, gut health, sleep, and stress that can help make a difference to all of us. The comprehensive protocols discussed will help to figure out how each of these factors impacts our lives and where we can adjust certain habits to support better hormonal health.
