Attaining optimal outcomes for our patients demands a more nuanced approach. Every element, from the questions we pose and the tests we recommend, to the initial aspects we address and even the supplements we prescribe, needs to be meticulously considered—from a detailed micro viewpoint to the broader macro perspective.
In The Clinic Room series, Dr Leah Hechtman will introduce you to unique case studies where you will learn how she applies her systematic analysis to devise coherent and comprehensive solutions that truly embody the multi-faceted, multi-dimensional and multi-integrative nature of holistic wellbeing.

Attachment, depression, trauma and the new brain post-partum
Recording now available
Explore the unique features of the post-partum brain. Explore the intricate processes of attachment formation between a mother and her newborn, the dynamics of post-partum depression and the potential impact of trauma on the maternal brain (both historical, acquired from pregnancy/labour or from the newborn experience). Discuss the presentation and strategies to support our patients as they reparent themselves as they parent their newborn, how the brain adapts and changes during this transformative period and the complexities of the post-partum experience.
Investigate the remarkable interplay between the microbiome, reproductive function and the immune system. Learn how the microbiome, the community of microorganisms living within the body, communicates with and influences the delicate balance of reproductive processes and immunological responses. Leah’s concept of ‘sharing and caring bugs’, how she recommends strategising a treatment plan for both parties and how you can use the microbiomes to optimise conception and selection of the optimal gametes.
Delve into the intricate world of endocrinology and ovarian biology. We’ll unravel the complex relationships between follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), and ovarian function. Understand how these hormones play pivotal roles in the regulation of the menstrual cycle, follicle development and overall reproductive health. Gain a deeper appreciation for the endocrine complexities that underlie female fertility.
Explore the men’s health matrix, emphasising the central role of testosterone in defining masculinity and promoting overall well-being. Beyond testosterone’s multifaceted functions it responds directly to and influences a male’s sense of masculinity. Low testosterone can profoundly affect the perception of masculinity and carry significant implications for male wellness.
In this workshop, we examine the intricate connection between endometriosis and sexual dysfunction. We will venture into the challenging experiences of anodynia and dyspareunia, which are often encountered by individuals grappling with endometriosis. Together, we will navigate through the intricate network of factors contributing to sexual health challenges in those affected by this condition, encompassing physical, psychological, and hormonal aspects.
As clinicians, our unique position enables us to anticipate our patients’ needs. It is both a responsibility and a privilege to discern trends, preempt challenges and empower our patients.
Practitioners need to understand the critical balance between science and insight. Whilst empirical data and evidence-based practices lay the groundwork, it’s expansive thinking that truly navigates the exploration of science.
In The Clinic Room workshops, we will transcend conventional lecture formats and challenge customary practices. Join me in immersing ourselves in in-depth, multifaceted case studies, with an emphasis on cohesive analysis, recommendations and holistic care.
