Today’s clinician is becoming increasingly aware of the detrimental effects of stress on patient health. Stressors with the current lifestyle maybe physical, biochemical or psychosocial have a great impact on the disease process. However lack of proper recognition and understanding of stress related disorders has rendered effective assessment and treatment elusive.
Beyond the obvious connection between the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and thyroid balance there are other key hormones like the sex hormones and insulin that are affected. The “stress system” is closely interrelated with the immune system the gastrointestinal human microbiome and the cytokines impacting mental and emotional health.
Dr. Heyman has been featured on the Discovery Channel, Martha Stewart Living Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, Natural Health Magazine and appeared in many other TV and print venues and is a widely sought after and celebrated speaker around the world on many Integrative Medicine topics. His teaching approach is described as deeply rooted in scientific evidence grounded in the clinical reality of expert patient care and readily accessible to both the new learner and seasoned practitioner alike.
