During this webinar, Dr. Cady will review functional medicine and hormonal irregularities in patients who-without a thoughtful laboratory and clinical evaluation-would be assumed to be “depressed,” with “poor motivation,” and the reason it is of paramount importance in medical practice. We want to avoid “blaming the patient,” because of an inadequately completed differential and clinical consideration.
Dr. Cady trained in psychiatry at the world-famous Mayo Clinic, beginning his practice of child, adolescent, adult, and forensic psychiatry in Evansville, Indiana in 1993. Dr. Cady’s main clinical focus is not on just treating the psychiatrically ill back to health, but is increasingly devoted to helping children and adults achieve total wellness and optimum levels of performance through the integration of mind and body for peak performance, using all of the possible healing options in the scientific and medical literature. In the spring of 2005, and following these principles, Dr. Cady founded the Cady Wellness Institute, which opened in its new facilities in Evansville on July 1, 2005.
Upon completion of this workshop, the healthcare professional will be able to:
- Identify common clinical presentations where the practitioner needs to have a high index of suspicion
that the issues are not “psychological” or “the patient is not trying hard enough.
- Review the common clinical presentations of men and women who have hormonal
abnormalities/irregularities and how those can be manifested in terms of mood and behavior, lack of
progress in weight loss, and fatigue.
- Review rational, conservative approaches to rebalancing the patient’s hormones, and if necessary,
repleting their methylation processes, and identifying and treating or referring for obvious medical issues
(anemia is a big one).
