New Hormone Research

October 6, 2014

There is a huge upsurge in research about hormones going on and more hormones are being discovered all the time. Mercola.com just had a great newsletter about that with a BBC video about hormone research since they were first discovered to now.

Our glands, that secrete hormones, were not that obvious to researchers, not like bones. And there are no special pathways like nerves or blood vessels that take the hormones here and there in the body so they were not investigated completely until relatively recently.

Dr Mercola also had an interview with Dr Hertoghe, here. I have recommended his book for years and now he has written another one. You can download a transcript of that interview and it explains all the hormones that so drastically affect our lives in a very clear way.

He also tells you things you can do first, nutritionally or with supplements, before you decide to get bio-identicals or thyroid meds. Our hormone production does diminish with age and with stress so women are having symptoms of deficiencies earlier than ever before. In fact, even children are suffering from burnt out adrenals just like adults.

So you owe it to yourself to read this article if you want to stay on top of your game as you age.

Now if you try the first solutions and then find that you need to get tests done and you don’t have access to a doctor who will test you for bio-identicals, there is another option. Many people don’t have alternative doctors in their vicinity and Medicare does not pay for bio-identicals for some ridiculous reason. They are too busy paying for Viagra, the most popular drug in their arsenal!

There is a site online called Canaryclub.org where you can get blood and saliva tests done by mail and get a clear explanation of what the results mean in a very short time. Less than a two week turnaround. I have used this lab many times and find them highly trustworthy. I do NOT get any kickback from these people, just so you know.

So, if you are tired or crabby or your hair is getting thin or you can’t concentrate very well, it’s time to learn more about hormones and how they affect your life. I know, you are too busy or too tired to do research – been there, said that! At some point you have to spend a little time on yourself and your well-being just so you can get back to being the dynamo you used to be.

I’ve been doing a lot of amazing new things lately and I keep reminding myself how lucky I am to have time and energy and mental function to be able to do all that I’m doing. I know people who are sick or depressed that just manage to get through the day. It’s hard for them to do more but they are the ones who need this the most. If you know people like that in your life, point them towards Dr Hertoghe’s article and help them to understand it. Let’s take care of each other!

Blessings,

Pam
