A Breakthrough Certification Course For Wellness Leaders & Smart Patients


The Complete Hormone Course for Today’s Toxic World

A complete course on “Everything Hormonal” including nutrition and brain health,
With information that most practitioners don’t (but should) know.

  • Today’s toxic environment is filled with hormone-altering chemicals, so to understand hormones, besides how the work inside your body and with each other, you need to understand their interactions with pollutants, and how to test, treat and live with these new nuances in mind.
  • The human brain is robustly run by sex steroid hormones. Thus a healthy brain is a sexy brain. 
  • This course gives 28+ hours of cutting-edge, scientific peer review information on hormones.
  •  You will learn how hormones act individually, in consort, how they affect our biomes, brain, gut, behavior, fat cell anatomy, and even our ability to connect with each other and benefit from these connections as nature intended. 
  •  You get enrolled, get a password, and can go back and read, learn and review over and over. It’s “evergreen”, meaning it is permanently online for your convenience.
  • It’s a combo of recorded video, power points, PDFs and eBooks.

“Why didn’t they teach all this info to us in med school? Berkson’s new hormone and nutrition information is changing the way I practice. It’s like savoring fine wine. I take my time and go over and over the modules to glean the many clinical pearls. Berkson is now one of my favorite doctors.”
Dr. Claudia Marcel, MD family practice doctor, Tampa, Florida

“Most courses advertise but don’t deliver.This course delivers more than advertised. This is the best course I’ve taken in my 17 years of practicing as an integrative nurse practitioner”.

We are facing an epidemic of hormone altering chemicals!

And it’s threatening your brain, gut and intimacy!

Did you know?

Hormones run our brain. But in today’s toxic world, hormone-altering chemicals are threatening the human brain and much more. Many prestigious institutions, like Harvard, are citing that hormone-altering chemicals are the newest threat to mankind, next to nuclear war and global warming. Hormone-altering chemicals are causing 25% of pregnancies to have complications, causing adverse changes in brain cells that control parenting, and altering neurocognitive and immune systems in both children and adults.

Our toxic environmental soup is damaging hormones from the womb to the tomb. But the field of endocrine disruptors (hormone altering chemicals) is so new, doctors are not taught anything about it in medical schools. Berkson wrote one of the 1st books on endocrine disruption and was a hormone scholar at the think tank of scientists that created this new field, so you get the latest information on hormones and how to keep them well, right from someone with their finger exactly on the pulse of what’s up with today’s hormones.

Your brain is at the top of your physiologic pyramid. But the human brain is under attack, even in children. Evidence of early Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s-like changes are being found in brain tissue of urban kids. Toxic chemicals are creating havoc with genes that regulate the fetal brain and gut inside the womb. Obesity makes brain volumes smaller. Refined sugar reduces blood flow to brain tissue, increasing the risk of type-3 diabetes inside human gray matter. It’s no wonder human emotions are on edge, children have ADHD, impulse control issues and anger, while graciousness, authentic human connection and even intimacy are waning.

Nature designed the human brain to be protected by chemicals released from human closeness. Nature never does anything without a reason. Why would intimacy within a healthy monogamous relationship be more brain protective than even parent-child love? Because nature intended for the hormones of intimacy to be brain protective, and to produce smarter parents who will intelligently care-take the next generation.

Research is showing that hormones depend on a life-long cross talk with the gut microbiome. However, hormone altering chemicals are paralyzing the microbiome. Unhealthy gut bugs from poor food choices to medications, are also harming the ability of your hormones to signal appropriately, even in the face of normal blood, saliva or urine test results.

Hormones are a family that function or dysfunction together. You may keep increasing estrogen replacement because you’re not getting the results you hoped for, when the issue might be other hormones out of balance, like excessive cortisol blocking the estrogen receptors.

Hormones are a complex tapestry depending on diverse factors, much more than only levels tested by any testing method. Hormones depend on nutrients, on the balance of other hormones, on bacterial ratios inside your biomes (your biomes cross-talk with each other), and even on the ability of your gut to digest what you eat. Specific nutrients act like metronomes, controlling the timing and effectiveness of hormone signals.

Hormonal rubber meets the road at the receptors. The ability of the receptor to receive hormone signals is called “receptor functionality”. Learn what makes receptors dysfunctional and what brings them back into balance again.

According to a 2009 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, regular love making within a healthy relationship, statistically reduces the risk the risk of cognitive decline. Yet, Americans are having sex 9 times per year less than the previous decade (according to research in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, March 2017). Many younger adults are less interested in connection. There is an epidemic of hormonal issues historically seen mostly in middle-aged adults. Girls are menstruating earlier and going in to peri- and post- menopause earlier. Young males are experiencing an epidemic of testosterone deficiency. These are canaries in the mine. When milestones of reproduction are changing, when hormones and brain tissue are changing, the human race needs to take protective actions to meet this new challenge of a planet that has become a toxic environment to our main signaling system, our hormones.

For the first time ever, younger generations have more illness and may have shorter life spans than their parents. Kids bond more with screens than faces, they text more than talk (where they can edit and multi-task but not truly connect); all the while releasing less brain protective hormones. More time on social media is linked, in the scientific literature, to significantly higher levels of perceived isolation and depression.

There is an epidemic of young males today with much less testosterone. Testosterone protects the brain from Alzheimer’s disease and even lowers the expression of the Alzheimer vulnerability gene, APOE4. Testosterone protects against cancer and strengthens bones. Bone loss is on the rise in younger American males.

Unfortunately, thanks to looming environmental threats, from toxic chemicals to sociologic high-tech changes, the answer isn’t as simple as just being intimate more often or taking hormone replacement if tested hormones are low.

We must educate ourselves on this issue.

  • Hormones are a much more complex issue than merely testing; and most testing is too inadequate
  • Learn about hormones in light of this new epidemic of hormone altering chemicals and nutrient deficiencies.

The brain of our children, our parents, our patients and ourselves, are at risk.

This course shows you how to reclaim control of our hormones, gut and brain health!

Hi! I’m Dr. Lindsey Berkson

I was a hormone scholar at an estrogen think tank at Tulane University, a pioneer in functional medicine, and a practicing nutritionist since the mid 1970s.

I’m also an integrative nutritional/gastrointestinal endocrine specialist since the early 1980s who specializes in complex cases, high-risk hormonal patients, and severe gastroenterologic cases who are trying to avoid surgery.

In addition, I’m a best-selling author who has written over 21 books with my 22nd (Nutritoinal Gastroenterology, a text book) going to launch in 2018. My many books on hormones have introduced that hormones, nutrients and digestion are all interconnected, and that all three levels must be working optimally for hormonal signaling to be healthy.

My original book, Healthy Digestion the Natural Way, was also one of the first books to highlight the role of the gut in the body, mind, spirit and medicine realms. It has been used by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the largest training body of integrative MDs reaching 120 countries, to train physicians.

In my book Hormone Deception, I introduced the link between hormone-altering chemicals and earlier menstruation and menopause and children’s brain and behavior issues. But now I realize that there is yet more damage occurring from our toxic chemical soup that we all live in.

Human connection, deep and authentic and brain-protective, is also being harmed. Our kids are also at great risk. I knew I had to create this course so that I could educate more people on the link between the environment, hormones and brain health.

I have been in practice for over 40 years. Many of my colleagues are retiring or passing on. I am passionate about getting this information out to help drive the health legacy of humanity toward a healthier road than it is presently taking. Kids today will live shorter lives than their parents; they are the first generation in many generations to do so. Illnesses that historically were only seen in seniors, are now being seen in kids under their teens. This includes sleep apnea, type-2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and now we have to add to the list; environmental castration.

I hope that you’ll join me in my this exclusive course where you’ll get to spend six weeks learning directly from me via recorded classes on one of the most pressing issues affecting you and your family and your patients.

If intimacy continues to fall by the wayside in relationships, if the tide of our brain is not turned, more will become seriously ill at younger ages. The role of the environment is critical in chronic disease. But the doctors in the clinical trenches have not been trained to consider this or treat it. But now you will.

I worry what our world will become in the next few decades. But if I can teach and share, as knowledge is power, together we can protect one brain at time, and eventually, generations to come.

What Our Students are Saying

Dr. Berkson, you’re such a blessing to the world. So much amazing information! And put together in a unique and easy to immediately use way. I want to be you! I wish I had realized earlier in life my love for hormones and all things nutritional. I used to work 100 hours a week at my husband’s busy orthopedic practice. Now I feel so blessed that I was able to manifest this new information and your work into my life. Thanks again.

-Diane Calvo, nurse

I must say that I find your work most rewarding, my practice of Gynecology is at least 50% hormone replacement for both men and women, and I often recommend your books, some actually get them and others will after a few suggestions. I have read safe hormones multiple times and often quote your studies when counseling a new hormone patient. Your new book, SEXY BRAIN, has generated so much attention that patients have asked to take it home, and a few have ordered while at the front desk. I am loving and learning with your new course, SEXY BRAIN – the complete hormone course.

-Dr. Marsha Goren

I discovered you a month ago and I just can’t stop listening to so many things you have so graciously and passionately shared. I have always said no to my alternative Drs. regarding bioidentical hormones through my 70 years but now I am learning with an open mind. A ND/MD that I am seeing now measured my pregnenolone and it was zero. I have been on 50 mg daily since November and feel like it has helped me focus and accomplish things better. Feel my hugs. You are a health warrior beyond the rainbow.

-Lorraine Glyn Lodoriana
-Dr. Marsha Goren

Sexy Brain course is groundbreaking in its ability to teach practitioners about hormones, toxins and the environment. I have taken several continuing education courses about hormones, but none as thorough and thoughtful as this. Dr. Berkson’s knowledge base is like no other practitioner out there today. I am grateful for her mentorship.
