Why is hormone resistance (inability to deliver the hormone’s message) on the rise?

2019-02-05T12:14:42-06:00

When I tell folks I specialize in hormone health, many agonizing times they say, “Hey, do you know the old joke about how to make a whore moan?” The long-standing answer used to be, “Well, just don’t pay her.” But there’s a new answer. And it has pertinence to us all. “The most up-to-date way to make a whore moan is to block her ability to work.” This is the new hormone resistance. Many of us think that hormones, either self-made or taken as hormone replacement or during teenage-hood or pregnancy, simply function as they’re supposed to. Once in the blood [...]

What’s nuts about nuts: They reverse blood vessel plaque!

Up till now we have thought that it’s pretty impossible to get rid of dangerous blood vessel plaque build-up without a rotor-rooter. I remember a physician told me just at the beginning of this year (2013) that he has never seen plaque reverse. Well, researchers in Spain measured the thickness of plaque in patients consuming varied diets and they found one food group, that if added to a healthy diet, reversed plaque. Several handfuls of nuts a day won the prize. Adding mixed nuts (walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts) significantly reversed dangerous plaque-build up. The research showed that consuming the healthy Mediterranean [...]

Who are all the players in a good night’s sleep?

The brain, it’s amazing. It’s at the top of the heap in total body health, and especially in mood and the ability to have a great night’s sleep. But it’s still unfolding how the heck it does all that it does, especially in regards to that elusive marvelous thing called ‘sleep’. A segment of the brain, in the hippocampus, is called the lateral habenula, which is where serotonin is made. When this area was removed in the brains of rats, they couldn’t get into theta sleep, which is a part of deep REM sleep. When the animal is in deep REM [...]

Hormones and MS, can hormone replacement help MS?

2019-04-03T09:57:43-05:00

Often people get a diagnosis of a disease and they are told they will have this disease for life and the only choices are medications and learning to live with the situation. But this is not necessarily so. Hormones, along with other novel therapies, including diet, may hold promising answers for improvement and possibly even remission for some individuals. Your own physician may not know about these therapies, but search around for those who work with alternative therapies such as these to at least consider other options. They are often inexpensive and have a high safety profile so you have nothing [...]

Every step you take, every food you eat, affects your heart function, and rapidly, especially a Big Mac…

Boy, it’s like having a Big Brother following us around and dinging our endothelial function (how well the most intimate lining of our blood and lymph vessels work) whenever we ‘sin’. If we eat junk food, lie around and snub exercise, or cram high saturated fat into our mouths, within several hours the critical function of the lining of our blood and lymph vessels (the critical fluid highways of our body) can be eroded by 50%! This is yet more research showing that a good diet does matter. And that the effect of how we live and eat, good or bad, [...]
