The 2023 Hormone Deep Dive

A year-long exploration of hormones for advanced herbalists and nutritionists

Every now & then, it's time to refresh your knowledge. 

Hormones are fascinating, and they're also complicated. 

It's one thing to read about negative feedback loops and the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in school. 

It's quite another thing to juggle clinical work with folks who have complicated cases while you're also trying to stay abreast of the latest research and understand how hormones are affecting everything else that's going on. 

You learned about hormones in school, but... 

  • It's been a while.
  • You couldn't cover it all in your classes and the science keeps evolving.
  • You're more interested now that you're actually seeing clients!

It's possible to stay up-to-date in the middle of your busy, messy life. 

I know most of us would love to be perpetually in school (guilty!); however, when you have a busy clinical practice, you simply do not have time to get another degree, take intensive classes, or do the research yourself. 

Let me save you from digging up your school notes, poring through the research yourself to make sure you haven’t missed anything critical, and/or purchasing an updated endocrinology textbook that costs more than this series (!). 

Let's brush up on the phys basics, review evidence-informed clinical strategies, and learn about testing options, and the latest research related to the topics at hand.

I spend 10+ hours (often double that 😳) combing through the research and compiling information on clinically-relevant topics so that you don't have to. Everything will be condensed into a series of 1-hour lectures for advanced practitioners. Just what you need to know to stay current and/or to update your clinical strategies. 

Introducing:

The 2023 Hormone Deep Dive 

Monthly live trainings designed for advanced practitioners to help you understand endocrine physiology and associated clinical strategies

It's easy to keep learning.

Set aside one hour per month to refresh your knowledge and grow your clinical skills. 

Designed for advanced practitioners.

Classes are focused on clinical application and the needs/interests of actively practicing clinicians.

Clear and concise.

Sessions are designed to be focused, clear, and fun. You'll learn just what you need, without unnecessary extras.

Approved for CEUs by the ANA

The American Nutrition Association has pre-approved these sessions for continuing education credits

Here's what we'll do in 2023: 

  • Brush up on endocrine phys/pathophys
  • Review clinical tools, skills, and techniques relevant to hormonal health
  • Understand dietary, lifestyle, herbal, and nutritional strategies to consider for each topic covered
  • Pick up at least a few new protocols, recommendations, or formulas to use with clients
  • Earn some CEU (hopefully!)
  • Revel in how fascinating and important the endocrine system is

What's Included in the 2023 Hormone Deep Dive

10 hormone-Focused Training Classes

Each 1-hour live webinar includes a deep dive into pathophysiology + suggestions for how to support people clinically with diet, lifestyle, herbs, and supplements.

Can’t make it live? You’ll have access to the recordings, slides, references, and any other resources provided.

All webinars are on Mondays at either 5 pm or 7 pm ET.

Certificate(s) of Completion

Complete a short quiz after each webinar, and you’ll get a certificate of completion. While I can’t guarantee that you’ll get continuing education credits, all sessions will be > 50% nutrition/herb-related content, and thus they should count for most of you! 

The Hormone Deep Dive has been pre-approved for NPCE credits by the American Nutrition Association. 

Access to Recordings, Slides, Reference Lists, and Other Resources

After each webinar, the recording will be posted within 48 hours. You’ll be able to download the slides and access the full references list for each presentation. We’ll also share other links and resources when applicable. You’ll have access to the recordings for 2 years.

NEw! Option to join 5 mini trainings with extended Q&A time

When you register, you will have the option to add on five mini trainings related to hormone health. These will include a 20-30 minute lecture + 30-40 minutes of open Q&A covering any of the Deep Dive topics. 

In case we don't already know one another...

Hi,

I’m Camille Freeman, LDN, DCN, RH

I offer continuing education and community for highly trained herbalists and nutritionists. I’m also a professor at MUIH, where I teach physiology and pathophysiology in the Department of Nutrition and Herbal Medicine. Teaching about how the human body works is one of my very favorite things. After being in practice for 15+ years, I can vouch for how understanding endocrine physiology can deepen your clinical work. 

Camille Freeman, LDN

Incredible value for a modest price

"Camille has such a talent for presenting complex pathophysiology in terms that are easy to understand and remember. I loved the depth and breadth of the clinical interventions for each condition, as well as the references that were included so I can dive even deeper.

A great way to learn

"The theme for each month was very specific, and Camille explains everything in a fun and interesting way, so you don't get bored. Having the quiz option is also encouraging and gives you some kind of accountability to make sure you understood the topic."

Frequently asked questions

What if I just want to attend a single webinar?

No problem! They’ll be available for purchase individually for $39 starting about a month in advance. Scroll to the bottom of this page to register for those that are available. I'll also post registration opportunities in my newsletter 🤓 Please note that you cannot register after the webinar has started, so if you want to have access do sign up early, even if you can't attend live. 

I'm not a practitioner. Can I attend?

There's no bouncer at the door to stop you 😁. However, do know that we're assuming everyone attending has a foundation in basic physiology and at least preliminary clinical skills when it comes to herbs and nutrition. We won't be covering the basics (e.g. what is CCK? What are the safety issues associated with licorice?). If you don't have a strong clinical foundation, you might be better off seeking a different program! Contact me if you're not sure whether these classes will be too advanced.

What if I need to miss some/all of the classes?

We post the recordings within 24-48 hours. You can go back and watch them whenever you’d like. When you register for the full 2023 Hormone Deep Dive, you'll have access to all replays for 2 years.

Are the classes accessible? 

I do enable live captioning within Zoom during the classes. It’s not 100% accurate (particularly with anatomical and botanical language), but it’s pretty good. Recordings will have accurate closed captions (I edit the myself to make sure they're right!), and a transcript will also be available. If there’s anything else I can do to make the webinars or the recordings more accessible for you, please reach out.

How do I know this will be worth it? 

It's pretty subjective, isn't it? One of the big benefits of signing up is outsourcing the research that's required to stay updated on these topics. Each class usually takes me 8-10 hours to prepare (sometimes more 😬). You'll leave with the condensed version that highlights the most important pieces that inform our clinical work.

Can I get CEUs for these classes?

These classes have been pre-approved by the American Nutrition Association for NPCE credits. They are likely eligible for other organizations as well, although I can’t make any guarantees, as the requirements differ depending on which state you’re in and what type of CEUs you need. Webinars will include at least 50% nutrition- or herb-related information, and presenters will not be selling or promoting any specific products. 

How long do I have to complete the quizzes and get my certificate(s)?

You’ll have until the end of 2024 to finish everything up. 

What is parity pricing and am I eligible? 

Parity pricing is available for people living in countries where the cost of goods and services is substantially lower than what we experience in the US. Parity pricing adjusts the cost of the Deep Dive based on these factors. If you are eligible, you should see a banner at the top of the page with a discount code. 

Not seeing the code? It may be because you're using a VPN. Try turning off the VPN or contact me if that is not possible.

I'm not interested in the hormone series, but I do want the webinar library. Is that possible? 

Yes! You can access all past webinars 2019-2021 webinar library for $29/month. Note: if you join Monday Mentoring, the hormone Deep Dive + the webinar library are included in your membership (and so is the 2022 GI Deep Dive!)
