Course Description:

Hormone imbalance – it’s complex and overwhelming.

Clients come to us with symptoms such as extreme fatigue, irritability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, foggy brain, cravings for sugar or salt, constipation, menstrual irregularities, decreased sex drive, and weigh gain. These symptoms are common but not normal.

Join Cindi Lockhart, RDN, LD, IFNCP as she teaches you how to assess and create a customized step-by-step lifestyle treatment plan that is realistic to follow and get results! She will cover the core hormone systems and how their disruption leads to crippling symptoms and chronic hormone-related conditions. She will share the underlying root causes of hormone disruption and the environmental factors that disrupt their delicate balance. Learn a skill set to address issues such as:
  • Estrogen Dominance
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • PCOS
  • Infertility
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Insulin Resistance/Metabolic Syndrome/Pre-Diabetes
  • Adrenal Fatigue or Exhaustion
You will be able to guide your clients to manipulate lifestyle factors to re-balance hormones, reduce symptoms, and better manage chronic hormone related conditions.

Don’t miss out on a new functional and integrative approach that gets results – register today!
Objectives:

  1. Articulate the 6 core hormone systems and how they are inter-related – cortisol, insulin, thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
  2. Determine how the gut affects hormone balance via digestion, intestinal permeability, and the microbiome.
  3. Identify common symptoms of specific hormone imbalances through subjective and objective assessments.
  4. Articulate how the 6 lifestyle-based root causes affect hormone balance – standard American diet, obesity, too much or too little exercise, chronic stress, inadequate sleep, and environmental toxins.
  5. Articulate how the 5 key lifestyle strategies naturally rebalance hormone systems – diet, exercise/activity, stress management, sleep optimization, and reduction in toxin exposures.
  6. Determine a prioritized and systemized approach for effective lifestyle interventions.

  • CINDI LOCKHART, RDN, LD, IFNCP

    Cindi Lockhart, RDN, LD, IFNCP, Cindi is board-certified as an integrative and functional nutrition practitioner with over 27 years in professional practice. She has trained nutrition, fitness, and medical practitioners throughout most of her career yet maintains a personal practice with clients/patients as she believes that the only way she can effectively educate and inspire other practitioners is through her own practical experience.

    Cindi completed her dietetics degree at the University of Illinois – Urbana and her clinical internship in Boston at Harvard’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital. She then went on to her first clinical job in Chicago at Rush-Presbyterian – St. Luke’s Medical Center. While working in the clinical setting in hospitals during her early career, she also became a certified personal trainer and trained clients on the side. Although conventionally trained as a dietitian, Cindi quickly realized that a conventional approach did not fulfill her philosophy of optimizing one’s health and function. She felt then that it was vital for her to pursue an integrative and functional approach to nutrition and medicine. Over the years, Cindi has achieved multiple certifications and accreditations from Metagenics from their First Line Therapy program as a Certified Health Care Provider, from Wellcoaches as a Certified Health & Wellness Coach, from the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) for Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice as well as their Hormone module, and from the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA) as a Certified Integrative & Functional Nutrition Practitioner.

    In addition to the above, Cindi co-created the nutrition philosophy for Life Time Fitness as well as their D.TOX program. She also implemented their corporate RD platform. Cindi has extensive expertise in women’s health issues including hormonal imbalances, infertility, thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunity and gut health. Cindy also works closely with men and children of all ages. Cindi believes strongly in the critical aspect of the practical application of her teachings. She excels at simplifying difficult educational topics for enhanced learning and providing a clear explanation of why her approaches are recommended, as well as what their outcomes will be.
