What is Aging Male Syndrome? This syndrome that occurs to men between the approximate ages of 35 and 65 is a collection of symptoms that occur due to a decline in production of testosterone in a man’s body. Low testosterone levels in males are often associated with symptoms of aging and are referred to as andropause or male menopause. Testosterone is an important anabolic hormone in men, as it plays important roles in maintaining both physical and mental health. The decline of testosterone is normal in healthy males as they age. However, when hormone levels drop, some of the commonly exhibited symptoms include: Weight gain Difficulty sleeping Loss of sex drive/Erection problems Difficulties with memory/concentration Feeling irritable/angry/nervousness Loss of motivation Lower self confidence Tiredness/Loss of Energy Muscle Loss/Bone Density decreases Depression/Mood swings Increased Urination Hair Loss As testosterone levels decrease, so does high density lipoproteins with an increase in triglycerides. The visceral fat cells are the most insulin resistant cells in the human body. They have excess hormone binding receptors for cortisol and androgens and decreased receptors for insulin. The cortisol and insulin levels rise while progesterone, growth hormone and testosterone decline. The visceral fat cell with its increased receptors, blood supply and innervations, begins to collect more fat in the form of triglycerides. If this is not interrupted with natural hormone balancing, it will lead to abdominal obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol, which is known as...

6 Simple keys to Keeping Your Heart Strong

6 SIMPLE KEYS TO KEEPING YOUR HEART STRONG WHY THE FUSS ABOUT CHOLESTEROL? It is a fatty, waxy material that is found in high-fat meat and dairy products, as well as egg yolks, organ meats and shellfish. Because of the essential role cholesterol plays in every cell of the body to help digest fats, strengthen cell membranes, and make hormones – the body creates all it needs on its own – about 1,000 mg a day. In order for cholesterol to reach our cells, it must rely on special carriers called lipoproteins: low-density lipoproteins (LDL)-“bad” form and high-density lipoproteins (HDL)-‘good” form of cholesterol. LDL carries cholesterol through the body and deposits it in the cells. HDL transports any cholesterol the cells don’t need to the liver, where it eventually gets processed and eliminated. Although various body tissues remove LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream and then use it to make cell membranes, bile acids, vitamin D and various hormones, once the tissues have acquired all the cholesterol they need, they stop extracting LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. The extra cholesterol, which happens when we eat too many foods high in cholesterol, continues to circulate in your arteries. LDL deposits the excess cholesterol onto artery walls, where it forms plaque that clogs the blood vessels and can ultimately lead to heart disease or even a heart attack. A good idea is to keep your LDL cholesterol level under 2.5 mmol/L (96 mg/dL) and your total cholesterol about 3.9 mmol/L (150 mg/dL)-4.7 mmol/L (180 mg/dL). WHAT ABOUT THE CHOLESTEROL LOWERING DRUGS CALLED STATINS? New research has shown that 1/2 the people who...

10 VITAL KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION

  10 VITAL  KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION    Did you know that the average American consumes more than 120 pounds of sugar per year, which is approximately 45 teaspoons per day? Did you know that recent statistics have shown that two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and that thirty percent of American children are obese? According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2. In addition, millions of us are in a state of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, that could progress into diabetes. Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure that blood glucose levels are stable throughout the day. Our brain needs a continuous level of blood sugar to avoid anxiety caused by blood sugar fluctuations. Are you at risk for diabetes? Do you have a family history of diabetes? Are you overweight? Do you have high blood pressure? Are your cholesterol levels abnormal? Are you over 45? Do you have a history of gestational diabetes? Drug Treatment the answer? A new meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials involved more than 33,000 people showed that drug treatment of type 2 diabetes is not only ineffective, it’s dangerous as well. These medications poison the enzymes in our body and disrupt the normal biochemical pathways. In general, a drug therapy protocol should treat the underlying cause of the illness that the drug is being...

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why?

Tired? Sleepy? Stressed and Don’t Know Why? If you have symptoms involving: fatigue, insomnia, stress, frequent illness, PMS, hot flashes, blood sugar, and weight, you may want to consider having your cortisol levels as well as hormones tested. Men and women over the age of forty may want to do a baseline test. Frequently imbalances will be detectable for a time period before symptoms gain attention. Difference Between Saliva & Serum Hormone Testing? Saliva testing is an EASY and a NONINVASIVE way of assessing one’s hormone status and is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. The difference between steroid hormones in saliva and serum is based on whether or not the hormones are bound to proteins in the medium used for testing. The majority of hormones exist in one of two forms: FREE (5%) or PROTEIN BOUND (95%). It is only the FREE hormones that are biologically active, or BIO-AVAILABLE, and available for delivery to receptors in the body. Those which are protein bound do not fit those receptors and are considered not bio-available. When blood is filtered through the salivary glands, the BOUND HORMONE COMPONENTS ARE TOO LARGE to pass through the cell membranes. Only the UNBOUND hormones pass through and into the saliva. What is measured in the saliva is the BIO-AVAILABLE hormone, the clinically relevant portion which will be delivered to the receptors in the tissues of the body. SALIVARY HORMONE levels are expected to be much lower than serum levels, as only the UNBOUND hormones are being measured. When your doctor measures serum hormone levels and prescribes hormone replacement therapy...

IS IODINE REALLY NEEDED FOR BREAST HEALTH?

IS IODINE REALLY NEEDED FOR BREAST HEALTH?   Without adequate iodine levels, life itself is not possible. What correlation is there between iodine and your breasts? The breasts are one of the body’s main storage sites for iodine. A sufficient iodine level is needed for the protection and preservation of normal breast tissues. When iodine is depleted, the breasts and the thyroid gland will compete for whatever small amount of iodine is on hand. When these tissues are depleted, one may develop any of these issues: hypothyroidism, fibrocystic breast disease, auto-immune issues and thyroid or breast complaints including cancer. There is a lot of literature about Iodine. It has been the most researched mineral in treating fibrocystic breast disease, amongst other health related issues.
