with Anju Usman Singh, MD, FAAFP, ABIHM, FMAPS

Caring for a child with special needs takes a toll on the health of caregivers who care for them. It is unfortunately all too common for mothers to suffer from exhaustion of their bodies resources as well, thyroid, adrenal and other hormones often become dysregulated and lead to symptoms like weight gain, hair loss, poor energy, depression, low libido and many other symptoms. In this talk, Dr. Usman Singh will help you sort through the major hormonal systems that may be affecting your well-being and give advice on testing and correcting imbalance. We hope you walk away with knowledge on how to provide yourself with the self-care for living with vitality.
