Webinar: Stress, Fatigue and Hormones – Getting the Balance Back

According to the British Safety Council, 15.4 million working days in the UK were lost to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2017/18. Fatigue is also the cause of 20% of accidents on major roads and is said to cost the UK between £115 and £240 million per year in terms of work accidents alone (Health and Safety Executive, UK).


In this relaxed webinar Dr Monica Lascar, a private consultant with a specialism in functional medicine and bio-identical hormones, takes attendees through her holistic take on stress and fatigue hormones. See how you can spot the signs and help your patients cope with stress and fatigue.

In Part 1 we explore the functions of the adrenal glands in relation to stress; including producing adrenaline, aldosterone and cortisol. Dr Lascar focuses on the importance of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis in our body’s stress response and regulating of bodily processes, including digestion, the immune system, mood and emotions, sexuality, and energy storage. Persistent stress on the body can be immensely damaging, so Dr Lascar discusses the effects of chronic stress and how you can help your patients to get the balance back.


Leading on from this, in Part 2, Dr Lascar talks specifically about hormones and stress, including the thyroid and men and women’s hormones. She then examines the effects and treatments for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, which causes pain all over the body. She ends by considering the diagnosis and management of adrenals fatigue which can cause symptoms such as body aches, fatigue, nervousness, sleep disturbances and digestive problems.
