Personalised Medicine for Reproductive Health
Restoring hormonal balance through the gene-diet-environment axis


Hormone disorders and fertility issues are more common place today than ever before. Current statistics indicate a significant rise in conditions such as PCOS, thyroid dysfunction, endometriosis and menstrual disorders, while one in six couples struggle with infertility.

Diet and environment play an important role in endocrine health and fertility due to the influence on hormone synthesis and metabolism, inflammatory status and cellular health. We are now also learning about the strong influence genetics plays in the development of these conditions. This seminar aims to review the key hormonal and biochemical imbalances associated with the above conditions, how to identify hormonal and immune imbalances, plus suggested interventions to support positive patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the factors contributing to imbalances in oestrogen and progesterone, luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and the resulting symptoms.
  • Recognise methods of supporting better hormonal balance, including the role of adrenal, neurotransmitter and thyroid health.
  • Learn about the impact elevations in prolactin may have on hormone balance, fertility and immune balance.
  • Understand the immune dysfunction present in patients with endometriosis, and the importance of addressing this.
  • Recognise the imbalances present in patients suffering the symptoms of menopause, and how best to approach these.
  • Review the specific nutritional and botanical interventions which may suit the above hormone-related conditions.
  • Understand how gene variants influence hormone metabolism, fertility and pregnancy.
  • Recognise the role of methylation in oestrogen balance and reproductive health conditions, such as recurrent miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, Down’s syndrome, gestational diabetes, and placental abnormalities.
  • Gain a deep appreciation of the relationship between genes, diet and environment and how to marry these points to achieve optimal hormone and reproductive health.
  • Learn how to use the Clinical Services Hormone and Fertility Profile for more targeted and personalised treatment strategies and improved health outcomes.

Our Speakers


Dr Denise Furness

Dr Denise Furness is a molecular geneticist, registered nutritionist and registered exercise professional. She conducted her PhD at CSIRO Human Nutrition, before completing a postdoctoral fellowship with the University of Adelaide’s Research Centre for Reproductive Health. Specifically, her research investigated folate nutrigenomics, methylation and DNA damage in relation to pregnancy outcomes. She has published her work in peer reviewed medical journals and regularly presents at national and international conferences. In 2012 Denise shifted from an academic research position to a consulting role at “Your Genes and Nutrition”, helping patients and practitioners understand the role of nutrigenomics and genetic testing in relation to various health outcomes. In particular, Denise is passionate about helping couples achieve optimum health and wellness to improve their chances for natural conception and healthy pregnancy outcomes. In addition, she holds regular educational seminars and workshops discussing the links between our genes and our environment and how these impact on our health throughout all the stages of the life cycle.
