The neurological symptoms of perimenopause with naturopathic doctor Lara Briden

The two to ten years before the final period can be a tricky time for women. In this webinar, naturopathic doctor Lara Briden will outline how perimenopause qualifies as a neurological transition state and can be a tipping point for the long-term health of the brain and the body.

She’ll explore underlying mechanisms of the neurologic change, including high histamine, loss of GABAergic tone, choline deficiency, and a shift to reduced insulin sensitivity and brain energy. Finally, she’ll outline strategies for assessment and treatment, including a brief discussion of the recently published clinical trial of oral micronized progesterone for perimenopause.
