Progesterone Replacement in Women

This Post Is All About Progesterone Replacement In Women. Ladies, what if I told you there was a medication that you could take that could control your PMS, balance your moods, improve your cholesterol, improve heart health, decrease bloating, all with one pill. Would you be interested in that? I’m going to give you the three most important things you need to know and understand about progesterone, and the two conversations that you need to have with your doctor today. What Is Progesterone? Progesterone is a hormone made by women in their ovaries and their adrenal glands. And during pregnancy, it is made by the placenta in very large amounts. What Are It’s Benefits? It supports a healthy pregnancy (“pro-gestation” or pro pregnancy). It is the mainstay of treatment for PMS. It treats postpartum depression (due to a sudden drop of progesterone once the placenta is delivered). Improves heart health. Improves sleep. Improves bone health.

An Intro To Bioidentical Hormones

The Human Experience Is That We Peak Around 25 Years Old, Then We Stay Relatively Steady For About A Decade Only To Slowly And Steadily Decline Over The Next 40 Or 50 Years. This is the narrative that we’ve all come to accept as normal because it’s common. But do we have to?

Hormones are chemical messengers that our body produces in the endocrine glands and endocrine organs. They facilitate communication between cells and organs with virtually every bodily process.

Stroke Prevention

We All Know That Stroke Is A Big Deal. But Are You Doing Anything To Reduce Your Risks? This week’s blog continues the conversation around heart disease, specifically stroke. Stroke falls under the umbrella of heart disease, along with high blood pressure and heart attack. I want to share with you the five most important things that you need to do to reduce your risk of stroke, and the two conversations that you need to be having with your doctor today. First Of All, What Is A Stroke? Stroke is a medical term that is used to define the death of brain cells. Just like in the heart attack, heart attack is the scientific term that we use to define the death of cardiac cells or heart cells. There are two main categories of strokes: 1. Ischemic (90%) 2. Hemorrhagic (10%) Ischemic strokes are caused when an artery is blocked. When Brain Cells Die, We Call That A Stroke. There are two sub-categories of ischemic stroke which are embolic and thrombotic. 1. Embolic strokes: These are caused ...

Reducing Heart Disease Risk

Despite The Lowest Consumption Of Fat And Dietary Cholesterol In Human History, Rates Of Heart Disease Are Continuing To Skyrocket. Nearly one million people a year die in the United States from heart attack. That’s 1/3 of all deaths. The Good News Is, There Are Several Things You Can Do Right Now To Prevent Heart Disease! In this blog, I’m going to give you the seven most important things that you need to be doing to minimize your risk for heart disease, and the conversations that you need to be having with your doctor to make sure you’re at the lowest risk possible. Heart disease is an umbrella term that encompasses heart attack, stroke and hypertension, or high blood pressure. In a normal situation, a nice slick blood vessel supplies the heart with oxygen rich blood. When you have heart disease, trauma causes a weak spot in the lining of the blood vessel to form. This weak spot makes the blood vessel vulnerable for things that are normally in the blood to deposit in it’s wall...

Metabolic Syndrome

Could High Blood Sugars, Elevated Triglycerides, Low Good Cholesterol, High Bad Cholesterol, And Diabetes All Be Connected?! This week’s blog tackles one of the most under-rated phenomena in all of health care. One topic we’ve discussed at length is insulin resistance. I’ve even gone as far as to call it the most important concept for you to grasp in all of health. It’s Called Metabolic Syndrome. In order to understand metabolic syndrome, we need to revisit insulin resistance. All living beings need energy to stay alive. Humans get energy from nutrition, specifically the nutrition that we crave the most – sugar. Not because it’s the best, but because it’s the most readily available, easily used for energy, and easily stored as energy for later. When we eat foods that raise our blood sugar, there are mechanisms in place to save that energy for longer term storage to be used during times of famines. Only today, there are no famines. In both hidden and free sugar, there is a nar...
