Why Am I Always Exhausted?

Published on Apr 27, 2016

Adrenal fatigue is one of the most common hormonal abnormalities in our society. The day to day stress from work, family and society, added to the changes that we and nature inflict on our bodies causes the overproduction and eventual depletion of cortisol, an adrenal hormone. The overuse and consequential lack of adequate cortisol production leads to adrenal fatigue.

Menopause and post-menopause is responsible for prolonged physical and emotional stress on the female body and plays a significant role in adrenal fatigue. Additionally, hormonal imbalances during this time further tax the adrenal glands.

A few of the common signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue include restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, depression, fatigue, a weak immune system, irritability, temperature intolerance and a craving for sweet and spicy foods.

Hormonal imbalance and a healthy lifestyle including, good nutrition, rest and adequate exercise can bring stability and vitality to the body and mind. The use of bioidentical hormones can help balance your body in times of stress and overcome adrenal fatigue.

Environmental Toxins and Weight Gain

Published on Apr 5, 2016

You are dieting, exercising regularly, doing your best to stay healthy and fit and lose some weight but it’s not working. Why you ask? It may be the toxins in your food and environment that you are exposed to that are working against you.

Biphenol A is a known and banned toxin that has been used in making plastic for many of the most common products such as water bottles and baby milk bottles. A similar compound that is currently being used Biphenol S has also been implicated in disrupting the normal hormonal function in both men and women.

Recent findings have also shown Biphenol S to have an estrogenic effect on the fat cells. This toxin promotes fat cell maturation and proliferation. This effect on the fat cells contributes to obesity and difficulty in weight loss. The effect of Biphenol A and S on the body is cumulative.

As always, it is best to avoid water from a plastic container, avoid direct heat on plastic containers since heat increases the leaching of the toxin into the water, avoid canned food and always select fresh and unprocessed foods.
