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 Steps to Keep You Safe in a World of Chemicals

6 Steps to Keep you safe in a world of chemicals   It is estimated that we have a minimum of 40 neurotoxins & carcinogens in our blood & urine at all times. Studies have shown that almost everyone tested had significant levels of pathogens and varying levels of vitamin & mineral deficiencies. Much of this is due to contaminated soil, water & the air we breathe daily. Our crops are grown on soils depleted & grown with artificial fertilizers and our meats are consumed from animals given antibiotics & growth hormones to increase their weight. One of the major problems with toxins is that you cannot see, taste, smell or feel them. We do not realize we are being affected until we come down with a chronic illness after years of subtle and repetitive exposure.   Toxins are 1 of the 6 Interferences to Wellness along with structural integrity, nutrition, allergies, electromagnetic interference and negative emotional patterns. A study published in the British Medical Journal estimated that 75% of most cancers are caused by environmental toxins and lifestyle factors which are stored in fatty tissues. Some of the effects of these toxins include: * Neurological disorders * Cancer * Nutritional Deficiencies * Hormone Imbalances–infertility, premature puberty, PMS, menopausal symptoms * Enzyme dysfunction * Fatigue, Headaches, Obesity * Muscle and Vision problems * Immune system issues, Allergies, Asthma, Chemical sensitivities * Chronic viral infections   WHAT ARE THE 6 STEPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE IN A WORLD OF CHEMICALS?   Since most food products are contaminated with toxic chemicals buy and eat organic produce and free-range organic foods as...

Hidden Sources of Processed Free Glutamic Acid

HIDDEN SOURCES OF PROCESSED FREE GLUTAMIC ACID (MSG) The MSG reaction is a reaction to free glutamic acid that occurs in food as a consequence of manufacture. MSG-sensitive people do not react to protein (which contains bound glutamic acid) or any of the minute amounts of free glutamic acid that might be found in unadulterated, unfermented food. These ALWAYS contain MSG Glutamate Glutamic acid Gelatin Monosodium glutamate Calcium caseinate Textured protein Monopotassium glutamate Sodium caseinate Yeast nutrient Yeast extract Yeast food Autolyzed yeast Hydrolyzed protein (any protein that is hydrolyzed)   Hydrolyzed corn gluten Natrium glutamate (natrium is Latin/German for sodium) These OFTEN contain MSG or create MSG during processing   Carrageenan Maltodextrin Malt extract Natural pork flavoring Citric acid Malt flavoring Bouillon and broth Natural chicken flavoring Soy protein isolate Natural beef flavoring Ultra-pasteurized Soy sauce Stock Barley malt Soy sauce extract Whey protein concentrate Pectin Soy protein Whey protein Protease Soy protein concentrate Whey protein isolate Protease enzymes Anything protein fortified Flavors(s) and flavoring(s) Anything enzyme modified Anything fermented Natural flavor(s) and flavoring(s) Enzymes anything Seasonings (the word “seasonings”) In Addition   The new game is to label hydrolyzed proteins as pea protein, whey protein, corn protein, etc. If a pea, for example, were whole, it would be identified as a pea. Calling an ingredient pea protein indicates that the pea has been hydrolyzed, at least in part, and that processed MSG is present. Relatively new to the list are wheat protein and soy protein.   Disodium guanylate and disodium inosinate are expensive food additives that work synergistically with inexpensive MSG. Their use suggests that the product...

CUTTING CALORIES AT HOLIDAY PARTIES

CUTTING CALORIES AT HOLIDAY PARTIES   Enjoy eating without guilt.  If you overeat at one meal, move on and eat better for your next one.  Celebrations are about family & friends not food as the focus.  Remember: balance, moderation and variety are the keys to health. Delete the word “DIE”t and CHEATING from your vocabulary. Before going to a party: Never go hungry- have some nuts, fruit, veggies, broth-based soup, hard-boiled egg, hummus, lo-fat cheese or yogurt, vegetable juice or protein shake. Also, drink 1-2 glasses of water. Take a catnap to avoid being tired therefore overeating & craving. Add an extra cardio work-out that week. Eat healthfully the week before going to a party. Bring your own food or dessert that you can eat. At the party: Choose a small plate and stroll around the buffet table to selectively choose your favorite must-have foods & desserts first. Then choose small portions of your favorite foods to taste only. (2 cupped handfuls) Fill ½ your plate with raw veggies to fill up on. Take a 20 minute break before refilling your plate. This will tell your brain you’re full so when you go back for seconds you will choose less high sugar/fat foods. If you don’t like a food you’re eating, don’t finish it. Chew slowly, really taste each bite and put your fork down regularly. Leave an empty space on your plate between each food item. Put everything you eat on a plate including that one piece of chocolate. Keep an arm’s distance or more from the food table when standing around talking. Focus on other things but...
