9 Hormonal Imbalance Signs Everyone Should Know
Here are the 9 most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance that can negatively affect you. If you suspect that you have any of these symptoms, talk to your doctor immediately! The rhythm of life, with all its stresses and environmental problems, doesn’t let you fully take care of your physical health. Despite this fact, your body and the way you look may be sending you signals about major health concerns that need to be dealt with. We all want to look our best but this doesn’t necessarily have to involve overpriced salon services, cosmetics or exercise. Your own hormones can “speak” for themselves. The development of the human body greatly depends on the function of hormones. These tiny signaling molecules are responsible for our mood, emotions, behavior and even our looks. TIMESTAMPS Acne 1:07 Excess weight 1:47 Fatigue 2:32 Sweating 3:16 Dark circles under the eyes 3:53 Depression 4:39 Breast changes 5:24 Hair loss 5:59 Unwanted hair 6:37 SUMMARY - Outbreaks of acne can be the result of improper skin care, an unbalanced diet, or your menstrual cycle. However, if acne has become a consistent foe, it’s probably a symptom of a hormonal disorder. - Many people struggle with their weight their whole lives, resisting food cravings and doing exercise; others are thin without any particular effort. Hormone-related problems are most likely to be the culprit of this injustice. - Always feeling tired despite no changes in your habits or environment is a much more serious problem known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which can be a result of hormones that are off balance. - If you have fluctuations in your body temperature, the issue could be both neurological and hormonal. Again, contact a health professional if you feel like you’re experiencing these symptoms. - Chronic insomnia may be the result of testosterone insufficiency in men and progesterone insufficiency in women. The good news is that sleep deficiency due to hormonal imbalance can be cured! - Depression can be another symptom of fluctuating hormone levels. Anxiety and depression can occur just before a woman’s menstrual cycle, during pregnancy, and during menopause. If you’re having more frequent panic attacks and anxiety, talk to an endocrinologist. - Low levels of estrogen can make breast tissue less dense whereas excessively high levels of this hormone can cause lumps or cysts. If you notice any changes in your breasts or you feel any lumps in your breast tissue, consult a doctor immediately. - Excessive hair loss is one of the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Take control of your eyesight and headaches. Worsening vision and frequent headaches may signalize instability in the pituitary gland, the hormone epicenter. Don’t just give up and blame it on stress and hard work. Get yourself checked out! Taking care of your health should be top priority. Know your body and listen to the signals it’s sending to you so that you can be in tip-top shape.

WARNING: Why Caffeine Is Horrible For Your Health & Hormones
A scientifically researched and natural solution for increasing your energy levels WITHOUT using caffeine: 👉👉 http://drsam.co/yt/Natural-Energy-Booster Or discover the worst energy supplement for your health: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-0c7CTy6Sg =============================================== WARNING: Why Caffeine Is Horrible For Your Health & Hormones =============================================== #caffeine Most of you aren’t going to like today’s topic, because most people consume daily, the most abused drug on the planet and that’s caffeine. And YES, caffeine is a drug. So powerful that Coca Cola’s original ingredient contained cocaine and they needed a replacement for it and the substitute was and still is, caffeine! Whether it’s your morning or daily coffee and tea, the usual “energy drinks”, sodas, pre-workout products or dozens of other “energy” stimulatory products that contain caffeine. In fact, most people can’t seem to start the day without getting their “caffeine hit”. The problem with caffeine is that it “burns out” your Central Nervous System and causes numerous, negative changes in your hormones, which ultimately accelerates aging. The negative changes in hormones are: Increase in stress hormones, such as cortisol -- this means more belly fat. Decrease in testosterone -- this means less muscle and lower libido. Decrease in growth hormone & IGF -- more fat, accelerated aging. Decrease in thyroid hormones (T3) -- slower metabolism and fat gain. Decrease in adrenal hormones -- DHEA, pregnenolone, etc. Decrease in melatonin -- sleep and anti-aging hormone. Increase in estrogen -- breast cancer, gynecomastia (“Man Boobs”), irregular menstruation Higher blood sugar and insulin insensitivity -- more fat, less muscle, diabetes, etc. Another major issue is neurological in that it causes issues by decreasing dopamine release and dopamine receptor sensitivity -- both are bad because it decreases happiness and can cause parkinson's. It also causes a decrease in another neurotransmitter, serotonin. This means again, less happiness, more worry, stress, anxiety and panic. Other health problems that are non-hormonal Oxidative stress and inflammation -- related to numerous health problems, aches and pains PH imbalance (more acidic) -- acid reflux, osteoporosis, gut bacterium imbalances Insomnia & poor sleep (shallow REM sleep) -- cause of too many health problems and hormonal imbalances. High blood pressure Honestly, I can go on and on. And trust me when I tell you that when I take a little bit of caffeine, I feel AMAZING. I honestly do. I’m happy, very productive and just more focused. But I’ve done so many tests with it and no matter what I do, within a few days my body adapts, I need to increase the dose, my hormones start to change for the worst -- as does my sleep. And people who I’ve tested who habitually consume caffeine daily, for years and years (like most of us) -- trust me, they have a lot of health issues. BUT NOT ONCE, will a doctor say “get off the caffeine, it’s killing you”. This is because nobody even thinks of caffeine as a drug. And “every does it”. Remember, it’s a very potent drug and works in many ways, the same as Cocaine. And both are “natural” and found in “nature”. But they are not to be consumed in highly concentrated sources, like we do in modern society. Anyway, like I said -- I really like how I feel on caffeine, I just don’t like to deal with the negatives - especially the hormonal imbalances. So, what does this mean? Because I know right now most people are thinking “umm… no way am I gonna stop my caffeine, I love my coffee, etc., etc.” Yeah, I get it. However, the good news is that there are much safer, healthier and even better solutions -- natural herbs, plant extracts and amino acids that will give you all the energy and focus you need, but without any of the negative side-effects that I’ve mentioned today. No crash. No negative hormonal changes. Plus, they are actually GOOD for your health -- body AND especially mind. Better for memory, cognition and mood. They actually help improve your hormones and neurotransmitters. They have anti-aging benefits, especially for your mind. ========================================­ Subscribe to Dr.Sam Robbins's official Youtube channel http://drsam.co/yt/subscribe Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/DrSamRobbins ========================================= Thanks DrSamRobbins

Sleep Maintenance Insomnia caused by Adrenal Fatigue
https://www.drlam.com/blog/stop-waking-up-at-3-am-every-night-sleep-more-function-better/21749 This is Dr.Lam, founder of DrLam.com. In our clinical practice helping people with adrenal fatigue, one of the most frequent complaints is that they cannot fall asleep. But those people who do fall asleep have a tendency to wake up multiple times in the evening after maybe 2 hours sleeping or 3 hours sleeping and they are not able to fall back to sleep anymore, or they can but it takes some time. Now this phenomena is called sleep maintenance insomnia, or what we call SMI. So typically a person goes to sleep, and then after 2-3 hours wake up. Sometimes waking up with night sweats, sometimes with heart pounding, sometimes with heart palpitations, heart pounding I talked about earlier and sometimes with racing dreams, and it's very hard to go back to sleep. Sometimes it takes 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and then when they go back to sleep, there's frequent awakening again. Now, what are the physiological reasons for this to happen? There are several reasons. Metabolically, if your blood sugar is low in the middle of the night, this could happen. Number 2, if you have a sympathetic system that is on overdrive, causing the body to be in a fight or flight response, then the norepinephrine as well as the epinephrine that is released as a result of this HPA axis activation can lead to the body being in an alert state. Now, this alert state usually is something that carries on from the day. So most of these people will have difficulty falling asleep to begin with. But eventually they do fall asleep because the body gets so overwhelmingly tired. But after sleeping for a couple of hours, because the underlying neurological endocrine hormones are still being released and still activated, then the body eventually wakes up. And then when you wake up, sometimes as I said, you have heart pounding. This reflects the norepinephrine as well as the epinephrine effect from the sympathetic effect. This is called again sleep maintenance insomnia. So if you have frequent awakening and you don't have structural problems like lung or airway obstructions that your doctor has cleared you from. The question you have to ask is why this happens. Usually a person goes into sleep and goes through various stages and eventually comes out in daytime and early morning as cortisol rises. So another reason for the sleep maintenance insomnia is a cortisol curve that is imbalanced. Sometimes we have to take the cortisol level in the middle of the night just to see how biologically the rhythm is disrupted. Most people think of sleep as an independent event that happena from let's say 10'o'clock in the evening to 6 or 7'o'clock in the morning. But that is a concept that needs to be modified. If you don't have a biological rhythm that is well balanced throughout the day, then it's going to have the flow through any imbalances. Dysregulations will flow through into the night and that is what one of the things you're going to have to look into as far as SMI. Having SMI therefore is a symptom of adrenal fatigue and SMI is an opportunity for us to look into the reasons as to why you maybe having this problem and how you can trace it to the root level, especially with regards to biological rhythma. Once you understand this concept, then you will understand that by restoring the biological rhythm to its normal circadian balance, then oftentimes the SMI will resolve. Similarly, if the SMI is reset, it could be due to metabolic reasons, and if you're able to overcome the metabolic issues, then the SMI will eventually go away or reduce. So SMI is an important symptom. It's a symptom that allows us to investigate further and I hope you can understand this concept. I've written many articles on this topic, SMI. For those of you who are interested in pursuing more, go to my website DrLam.com and then put in the search word 'insomnia' or 'sleep'. There are two articles that particularly come to my mind and one is called 'Sleep and Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome' another one is called 'Biological Rhythms and Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome' and both would be a good read for you to understand this topic more.

Vitamin D, Deep sleep & Gut Bacteria w/ Dr. Stasha Gominak
Dr. Stasha Gominakdiscusses how vitamin D (from the sun) is needed to improve the stability of gut bacteria, which in turn help synthesize B vitamins necessary to facilitate deep sleep.

Does ours? 22:05 Why Did It Take 2 Years to Become B Deficient? 23:44 Each B vitamin has an intestinal bacterial source and a food source. 26:02 Wanted: Gut Bugs 31:39 You can fix your own bacteria with vitamin D levels above 40 and take B100 or B50 for 3 months. 32:58 The sodium linked multivitamin transport system pumps 3 vitamins, pantothenic acid, alpha lipoic acid and biotin, into our digestive system and our brain. 36:24 Dr. Gominak sees a correlation between autism and vitamin D deficiency. 38:27 The development of sexual dysmorphism and sleep. 42:34 When a child cannot get out of bed in the morning, this is may be the brain demanding that they go back to sleep to get REM. 44:03 A lack of REM sleep cheats a child of their normal development. 47:15 Children and adults normally make small subtle movements and tiny vocalizations, not talking, walking or falling out of bed. 48:27 Taking the Weston A. Price westernization theory to another level. 56:02 Breastfeeding enlarges nasal passages. 57:28 Dr. Gominak believes that vitamin D is trophic to the bacteria that we are supposed to have in our gut. 59:24 Pantothenic acid not only makes acetylcholine, it makes cortisol. 60:11 Acetylcholine is a chemical used by the vagus nerve. 01:07:46 A test result of pantothenic acid levels will parallel magnesium levels. It tells you what is in the blood, but not what is in the stores. 01:09:10 Perhaps we are completely self-healing with REM sleep. 01:12:26 Dr. Gominak’s Morning Routine 01:13:31 The ketogenic diet helps people to live longer. Being ketogenic during REM sleep helps us repair. We were probably designed to go into ketosis for at least 12 hours every night. 01:15:08 A new theory is that the tricarboxylic acid/CREB cycle, which is used when you are using fats as your energy supply, may have a different purpose. It may not be about making ATP. 0101:19:33 Dr. Gominak’s desert island herb, nutrient or supplement: Her choice is vitamin D, even on a desert island. 01:30:35 Dr. Gominak’s Elevator Pitch: We can impact our children, especially children of color. It they don’t go outside, they don’t make enough vitamin D.

10 Early Warning Signs Your Estrogen Levels Are Too High & How To Fix It
Nothing helps the body work like it should than when its hormones are perfectly balanced. The key to making sure that women’s bodies are hormonally balanced is making sure that their estrogen levels are where they need to be. Estrogen also plays an important role regulating the menstrual cycle. Bloating and a decreased sex drive are just two indicators of estrogen dominance—what takes place when your estrogen level gets and stays too high. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of too much estrogen can help you know to make sure your hormones stay regulated. Weight loss, high blood pressure, diabetes, and pregnancy are some of culprits of estrogen dominance. Let’s take a closer look at these and more. Here are 10 signs that you have estrogen dominance: 1. Weight Gain Putting on more than a few extra pounds can be an indication of too much estrogen. It causes bloating and makes it even harder to lose the weight. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, your estrogen can’t suffer rapid changes. 2. Heavy Menstruation When your estrogen levels rise, it can have the unwanted side effect of giving you a heavier period than normal. So, if that happens, you might want to consider having your estrogen level checked. 3. Decreased Sex Drive When you just don’t want intimacy with your significant other, it could mean a significantly increased amount of estrogen. High amounts of estrogen point to a lowered sex drive; however, you don’t want your estrogen to fall too low. It can also affect your desire for sex. 4. Irregular Period As we’ve already seen, your hormones and your period are closely related. When your estrogen fluctuates more than it should, the time between your period becomes unpredictable also. 5. Swollen Breasts When your hormone levels change, your breasts can become overly sensitive. So, when your breasts get tender to the touch, it might mean that you’ve got too much estrogen. 6. Changes in Mood Estrogen can affect your mental health. Too much of the female hormone has been attributed to panic and anxiety attacks as well as depression. 7. Frequent Headaches Have you recently experienced migraine headaches? Have you begun to get headaches more than normal? These issues could be cause by estrogen dominance. 8. Hair Loss When your body produces too much estrogen, your hair begins to thin. As it thins, it begins to fall out. Balancing your estrogen levels can take care of this irritating problem. 9. Insomnia When you’re having trouble sleeping, the cause could be too much estrogen. Our bodies know when there are problems and often times has problems adjusting. Sleep loss can be a reflection of that. 10. Cold Extremities Estrogen levels can affect circulation too. If your hormone levels are abnormal it could be the reason you're having a hard time keeping your hands and feet warm. Balance Your Hormone Levels with These 5 Foods 1. Rosemary Rosemary doesn’t just add flavor to your favorite recipes. It can also improve memory function, boost your metabolism, and contribute to a properly functioning thyroid. Best of all, rosemary is one of the foods responsible for producing estrogen. 2. Cruciferous Vegetables I3C, or indole-3-carbinol as this nutrient is properly known, is found in cruciferous vegetables like spinach, bok choy, kale, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli. These all have the important job of ridding the body of excess estrogen because the I3C converts into a substance that helps the liver flush the body when it has too much estrogen. 3. Flaxseed Another food that assists in getting rid of excess estrogen is flaxseed. The lignans and phytoestrogens present in these tiny seeds help regulate estrogen in the body by controlling how much of the hormone is able to bind to estrogen receptors. 4. Isoflavones Found in several herbs such as Trifolium pratense, Puerari montana, and Pueraria lobata, isoflavones have antioxidant properties that boost low estrogen levels. These herbs can be found in certain teas and are a great way to balance estrogen levels. 5. Activated Folic Acid You often hear about the importance of folic acid in women’s health. That’s because it’s present in the same leafy green vegetables that are high in I3C. It’s able to change estrogen into a form that actually lowers the risk of some forms of cancer.

The class can help all the habitual worriers and overthinkers by calming the nervous system and allowing the breath to deepen while moving through 10 sun salutes (midway through the practice) Our health is greatly affected by our thoughts and our stress level which in turn affects our hormonal system so I recommend this class to be done every so often or even before bed time in order to keep the body and the MIND healthy and free of all the nonsensical racing THOUGHTS and illusions which tend to occupy most of our day. ***My Instagram https://www.instagram.com/ali.kamenova/ *Facebook https://www.facebook.com/AliKamenovaIntervalYoga/ *My 90 DAY Beginner Yoga Program on USB http://www.alikamenova.com/beginner-yoga-program/ *Support Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/beautifulyogisAK/ * My New Rug http://amzn.to/290bDlR Paisleys *Camera I use http://amzn.to/1oIIyA0 *Vegan Protein Powder for recovery http://amzn.to/1qzVieq Intermediate yoga course on udemy https://www.udemy.com/weight-loss-power-yoga/learn/#/ Find my free yoga courses on konoz https://konoz.io/AliKamenova *My Favorite yoga Mat is http://goo.gl/FCOamk * One if my favorite affordable yoga bras http://amzn.to/22wpGnf *My Favorite skincare facial serum http://amzn.to/1WAiMtz MY NEW 12 WEEK BEGINNER YOGA COURSE ON USB AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE NOW http://www.alikamenova.com/beginner-yoga-program/ my facebook https://www.facebook.com/AliKamenovaIntervalYoga For 2 new weekly intermediate and advanced class uploads join my website membership http://www.alikamenova.com/memberships/choose-membership-type/ JOIN MY EXCLUSIVE COURSES WITH UNIQUE CONTENT ON UDEMY https://www.udemy.com/user/alikamenova/

Addressing Insomnia & Chronic Fatigue with Bio-Identical Hormones - Jeanne's Testimonial
TRANSCRIPTION: Hi my name is Jean Lee I'm a new patient of Dr. Shels and I think I came here about mid October 2016, which is about two months ago. Before I came I was on bio-identical hormones, Estrogen and progesterone compounded, and I was still having issues that i felt had not been improved, so I made an appointment with Dr. Shel. It turns out my dermatologist, Dr. Chilukuri, knew her personally which was another great recommendation for me. A couple weeks later when all the results are in I came back in and there were markers. Some were too low, some were too high. She changed my compounded cream to a different combination. Still the progesterone and estrogen but a different formula. She also added a progesterone capsule and new supplements to help my concerns, one of which was a clear complexion, one of which was lack of energy, and a huge one was I did not sleep! Now it's been a little while later, a month or so later and all of those have definitely improved. Now I'm sleeping like a baby. I'm only having a calming tea at night. My complexion is clear and I definitely feel more energetic. I think she's a wonderful lady to speak with. She puts you at ease. She is concerned and she's a wonderful listener. I feel like we're on the road to much improved health and I highly recommend her. She's very skilled, intelligent and a very gifted lady.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped ENDOCRINE gland located in the neck. It is wrapped around the trachea, just below the thyroid cartilage –the Adam’s apple. The two major hormones of the thyroid are triiodothyronine, T3 and thyroxine, T4. The numbers 3 and 4 indicate the number of iodine atoms present in a molecule of each hormone. T3 and T4 are collectively referred to as THYROID hormones. Thyroid hormone secretion is under control of thyroid-stimulating hormone, TSH, from the anterior pituitary. TSH, in turn, is induced by thyrotropin-releasing hormone, TRH, produced by the hypothalamus. The amount of circulating thyroid hormones is regulated by a negative feedback loop: when their levels are too high, they SUPPRESS the production of TSH and TRH, consequently INHIBITING their own production. Thyroid hormones act to INCREASE the body’s metabolic rate. They stimulate appetite, digestion, breakdown of nutrients and absorption. They also increase oxygen consumption, raise the breathing rate, heart rate and contraction strength. As a result, the body’s HEAT production is INCREASED. Thyroid hormone secretion usually rises in winter months to keep the body warm. Thyroid hormones are also important for bone growth and fetal brain development. There are 2 major groups of thyroid problems: HYPOthyroidism: when the thyroid does NOT produce ENOUGH hormones, resulting in a LOW metabolic rate, combined with SLOW respiratory and cardiovascular activities. Common symptoms include fatigue, weight gain despite poor appetite, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, heavy menstrual bleeding and constipation. Iodine deficiency and Hashimoto's thyroiditis are the most common causes. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed by the body’s own immune system. Hypothyroidism, especially when caused by iodine deficiency, may lead to swelling of the thyroid gland, known as GOITER. In an attempt to fix the low levels of thyroid hormones, the pituitary produces MORE TSH to further stimulate the thyroid gland. The thyroid, while UNable to make hormones WITHOUT iodine, responds to TSH by GROWING in size. Hypothyroidism is managed with thyroxine hormone replacement. HYPERthyroidism: when the thyroid gland produces TOO MUCH hormones, resulting in a TOO ACTIVE metabolism, together with respiratory and cardiovascular rates that are HIGHER than necessary. Common symptoms include irritability, insomnia, weight loss despite good appetite, heat intolerance, heart racing and diarrhea. Hyperthyroidism is most commonly caused by Graves' disease, another autoimmune disorder characterized by presence of an antibody, called thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin, TSI. TSI, similar to TSH, stimulates the thyroid gland to produce hormones. Unlike TSH, however, TSI is NOT regulated by negative feedback mechanisms, leading to UNcontrolled production of thyroid hormones. TSI also stimulates the thyroid gland to grow, which MAY lead to formation of a goiter. Hyperthyroidism may be managed with drugs that suppress thyroid function, radioactive iodine that selectively destroys the thyroid gland, or surgery that removes part of the gland.

Better than Sleeping Pills: Natural Remedy to Sleep Better
Are you having trouble getting a good night’s rest? We all do at times. With all the stress around us, it can be hard to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling rested. Stress and electromagnetic frequencies from cellphones, computers, and other electronics don’t help the case. Bright lights, and other things, can change our nervous system and sleep hormones, and lessen how much good sleep we get. When you don’t get enough sleep, you lose out on what your body can do to work properly. Your cognitive thinking skills get worse, your motor skills slow down, your energy drops, and you’re at more risk for diseases and health conditions like obesity, diabetes, and cancer. You’ll feel better, work better, and block disease by getting at least eight hours of sleep each night. The easiest thing to do is grab a sleeping pill, but is that a good idea? It may work for a little while, but it’s really harming your body’s health and natural abilities. Sleeping pills can come along with dizziness, constipation, stomach pain, a hard time paying attention, memory problems, and harm to the central nervous system. If you do not want the bad things that come with sleeping pills, what can you do? The answer is banana cinnamon tea. Using the soothing value of banana, the banana peel, and cinnamon is a great way to push insomnia and other sleeping disorders aside. Bananas are full of potassium and magnesium. Most people do not know that the banana peel has even more potassium and magnesium than the banana, and they just throw it away. Not anymore! With this simple recipe, you can get the help from the potassium and magnesium in the banana peel. Potassium and magnesium are helpful to the nervous system and are great for soothing the muscles. In fact, magnesium is the most important mineral to ease muscles and can lessen muscle cramps and other aches and pains. Cinnamon is great because it evens out blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are even, your hormones can work in a way that lets you sleep better. If your blood sugar levels are off, then you may have energy at night, or be tired during the day. Here’s the recipe: Ingredients: 1 organic banana (with peel) 1 small pot of water A sprinkle of cinnamon (if you’d like) Step 1: Cut off both ends of the banana (top and bottom) Step 2: Put the banana into a pot of boiling water. It’s even better if the water is spring water or filtered in some way. Boil it for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle some cinnamon in the water as well. If you’d like to add some stevia for sweetening, do so. Stevia helps to even out blood sugar levels, and will not raise blood sugar levels before bed. Step 3: Add more cinnamon if you’d like, and enjoy!

Insomnia, Chronic Fatigue, Hormonal Imbalance - Pastor Owens Got Her Groove Back!
Pastor Liddie Owens found herself exhausted to the point of barely being able to get out of bed and no longer able to live the life she loved. Listen to Liddie's story on how she went from feeling down-and-out to having abundant energy! TRANSCRIPTION: Hi my name is Liddie Owens and I'm a fairly new patient of Dr. Shel. I came to Dr. Shel about three months ago and I was really in a bad situation and I didn't understand what was happening in my body. Nothing in particular was hurting but I knew something was wrong. I was lightheaded, I was weak, my energy level was very low and I couldn't sleep. I went 3, 4, 5 days in a row without any sleep night and day. I went to the hospital three times to the emergency room and they couldn't find anything wrong with me. They said we hate to disappoint you but your blood work is the best we've seen in weeks. But I left knowing that something was wrong and so I consulted with some medical doctors and they had some suggestions for me. That maybe I need to be on depression pills or sleeping pills, but I knew that wasn't for me. And so through a divine intervention I came across the name Dr. Shel Wellness Center here in Sugar Land. And so I came to Dr. Shell and right away she began to ask me certain questions that I knew that she must have had the answer to because it was just registering with where I was and what was going on in my body. Dr. Shel began her testing and it was a very unusual way of testing that I wasn't aware that doctors did and that was saliva testing. And she took those test results sent them off to lab and called me when it came back in and she began to tell me that my hormones were unbalanced. So it's been three months now since I've been under her care and after the second week I was already up and running again after being down for 2 full months. I'm talking about at home, couldn't get out, barely could get out of the bed every day. After two weeks being under Dr. Shel's care I was up and doing what I like doing and that's running, serving, being a blessing to God's people. So I want to encourage women of all ages, all backgrounds, men of all ages, she has answers for you. If you don't know what to do and your doctor doesn't know what to do, I can assure you Dr. Shel has the answer for your situation. Stella got her groove back! That's what I'm trying to say!

Sleep Onset Insomnia prevents sleep in Adrenal Fatigue
https://www.drlam.com/blog/insomnia-and-adrenal-fatigue/21871/ Not able to fall asleep, despite being tired at the end of the day, is a very common complaint of adrenal fatigue. This is Dr. Lam, founder of DrLam.com, and today we are going to talk about this phenomona in detail. Well, let's think it through, what you do during the day. A normal person wakes up during the day, they prepare themselves, they go through their normal daily chores, and your energy level will tend to deplete, usually, by midmorning a little bit, but your body actually rebounds on their own and you don't feel it. Some people take a morning snack to help out. In the afternoon, the afternoon slump can be experienced between 2-3 o'clock, and that is why an afternoon snack like a little tea, the English people do it quite successfully, can help to rebalance the blood sugar and give the body a little rest instead of dipping into the nutritional reserve. By the time, the end of the day comes along most people tend to be tired, and they go home, prepare dinner, and rest. That is about the time that the body starts to wind down, and you prepare for your rest in the evening time, after dinner. Now, most people with adrenal fatigue tend to be tired not necessarily all of the day, but many of them throughout the day. In addition, they do feel tired even when they go home, and by the time 9-10 o'clock comes along, they are ready for sleep. Unfortunately, a large majority of these people don't fall asleep. Even though they are tired, their physiology has been on the go for such a long time, sometimes 12-14 hours throughout the day already. They lie down in bed and cannot fall asleep. This phenomenon is what we call sleep onset insomnia or SOI. The basis for this can be rooted in several physiological factors. If your body is in a state of alert, this is what happens; and usually what happens in adrenal fatigue, then the body will not let you go to sleep. Well, let's see what actually happens. When your body is in adrenal fatigue, your body's adrenal system is weak and it is trying to slow down to conserve energy. In that process, if this is not attended to and no rest is given to the body throughout the day, then the body automatically activates the alarm response, or the fight or flight response, and this is going through the sympathetic nervous system. The neurotramsitter responsible is norepinephrine, as well as epinephrine to a certain degree. Epinephrine is also called adrenaline, and epinephrine is the chemical daughter, biologically, of norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is created in the brain, and is one of the top cascade neurotransmitters, and when you have a fight or flight response that is activated when the body is in adrenal fatigue, norepinephrine is released from the brain. Now, the norepinephrine in the brain starts part of it, the HPA axis or the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal axis of hormone balancing. But, in particular, the norepinephrine itself circulates within the brain and causes an alert response. Many street drugs, in fact, use this phenomenon, and that is the whole class of amphetamines and even drugs such as Adderall using this concept. So when this neurotransmitter floods your system and the brain, you are not going to be able to fall asleep because the body does not want you to fall asleep. So despite that you are really tired and you lay there, you lay there for 30 min, 45 min, 1 hour, and sometimes the heart might be pounding a little bit and no matter how hard you try, the body will not go to sleep until sooner or later, hopefully in the most people you get so tired that even the body will overrule the norepinephrine and then eventually you will fall asleep; but this process can take a long time, and in severe cases you can be awake for hours. So understanding the concept of SOI or Sleep Onset Insomnia as a symptom of underlying root problems is very important because you don't want to just take sleeping aids, or sleeping medications because that may mask the underlying problem. So commonly, very commonly, SOI, being tired but unable to fall asleep is a critical important sign and symptom of adrenal fatigue. For more information on this topic, go to my website, I have written an article called 'Sleep and Adrenal Fatigue.' There is another one called 'Biological Rhythms and Adrenal Fatigue' and both are very useful for you to understand what I am talking about here and giving you additional insight and details on how to deal with this problem.

Are You Overtraining? | The Effects of Overtraining on Hormones- Thomas DeLauer
Are You Overtraining? | The Effects of Overtraining on Hormones- Thomas DeLauer: Balancing Workouts, Diet, Career, and Family is all a balancing act, and that's why I specialize in it at http://www.thomasdelauer.com So you found the inner fire inside of yourself and it is go time - time to eat healthy and workout hard! But you have heard that it is good to start slowly and work your way up. It may surprise you that this is not only for the purpose of not injuring your body. Working out is one of the quickest ways to affect your hormone production. Working out is a stress on your body. When you have healthy amounts of stress your body has time to heal and recover, leaving it stronger than it was before. When you do not give yourself that time to recover from stress, this can lead to a whole bunch of issues. We all know that too much stress is a bad thing; chronic stress has been linked to headaches, overeating and obesity, restlessness, illness, and digestive problems. Our body’s stress response is similar when we exercise as when we experience a life stress, such as traffic or losing a job. Signals are sent that queue the release of stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, into our blood from our adrenal glands. Elevated cortisol levels can signal that your body is undergoing chronic stress, which could be caused by life situations or by over exertion during workouts. One study from the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that cortisol levels in saliva were higher for those who underwent long duration, high intensity exercise (over 59 minutes of high intensity cardio.) Studies have also found that a similar increase in cortisol is experienced during heavy weight training workouts. Another study looked at cortisol levels in those performing the same workout under two conditions: no additional emotional stress and additional emotional stress. Those that were exposed to emotional stress at the same time as working out had higher cortisol levels. This signifies the importance of both our wellbeing and our workout load on our hormone levels. Alright, so we see that high intensity exercise can lead to raised cortisol levels. How does this impact us? Overtraining Syndrome: If you work out too hard and do not allow adequate recovery time, you may suffer from OTS. Symptoms include: -Problems sleeping -Disrupted mood and behavior -Fatigue -Hindered athletic performance -Sexual dysfunction - reduced sexual desire, even infertility -Bone loss -Weakened immune system -Difficulty losing weight -Amenorrhea (absence of menstrual bleeding) -Physical injuries What causes these symptoms? One of the large factors is an imbalance in your hormones. Hormones: Chronically high cortisol levels can lead to your body being in a catabolic state, where your body is not breaking down fat but rather muscle for fuel. It can also lead to a weakened immune system. If you have one hormone that is out of whack, it is likely to impact your other hormones. Chronically elevated cortisol levels lead to a decrease in the level of testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. These are the sex hormones, and are very important to our daily wellbeing. These changes reflect a change in the balance of catabolic hormones and anabolic hormones. This danger is particularly of concern for women. When your sex hormones are imbalanced you can experience amenorrhea, when your body enters a state where it no longer is able to menstruate. Eventually the adrenal glands go into a state of exhaustion, known as adrenal fatigue, where hormone production overall is slowed. In this state your body is not as capable of dealing with stress. At this state even your cortisol levels are low, leading to many of the down feelings associated. Tips: If you think you may be experiencing OTS, it may be time to take a step back and do what is best for your body. Give yourself time to recover. If you are experiencing high stress at home or work, do a more relaxing exercise, such as yoga. This can help to reduce your cortisol rather than raise it, which will happen if you run hard for a long time or lift heavy weights. References: 1.

Intermittent Fasting - How it Affects Sleep
It's common to have sleep trouble with fasting, but intermittent fasting should actually improve sleep. Here's why. ▲Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/WILearned ▲Twitter: https://twitter.com/jeverettlearned ▲Bitcoin: 1CuSEgDr5raV3XKoHL7W19QRoCkE3iHt1X I get questions every now and then about intermittent fasting affecting people's sleep, and most people after just a few days find that their sleep is actually better. If you've been doing intermittent fasting for more than a week and are still having trouble with sleep, you should try shifting your eating window to earlier in the day (why is partly explained near the end of this video). However, (this may be unfortunate news...) it seems that coffee starts this eating window. As Dr. Rhonda Patrick says on the Joe Rogan show (https://youtu.be/uxM_CLsvieE?t=2h34m45s - Should start at time stamp 2:34:45) : Caffeine is a xenobiotic, it has to be metabolized. The first thing non-water thing you put into your body is going to start all these different clocks that affect metabolism, so after the clock starts, you want to consume everything in at least a 12 hour time frame (& earlier in the day) to reap the benefits of more optimized metabolism. Here is another check out this excellent interview with Dr. Satchin Panda and Dr. Rhonda Patrick: https://youtu.be/-R-eqJDQ2nU discussing the benefits of time restricted feeding.

To learn more, visit: https://www.fullspectrumsolutions.com/ -During sleep, melatonin levels should increase and cortisol levels should decrease. -Melatonin is known as the “anti-aging hormone.” -Cortisol is known as the “aging hormone.” -Stress increases cortisol levels, which causes melatonin levels to decrease, inhibiting sleep quality. -Reducing stress is a key factor in improving sleep quality. -It is important to balance melatonin and cortisol levels throughout the day and at night. -Build more joy and peace into your life and eliminate things that are causing stress. -Taking a power nap for 15-40 minutes (ideally 30 minutes) increases productivity and energy levels. -The individual organs also have circadian rhythms. -The body detoxifies and balances hormones at certain times throughout the day. -From 11PM-1AM, the liver and organs detoxify. -From 4-6AM, hormones balance.

And this is because foods interact and control your hormones, neurotransmitters and other chemicals in your body that can cause you to feel more happiness and joy … or stress, anxiety and depression. So today I’m going to quickly discuss the 3 best types of foods that will help make you happier, improve your mood - while reducing feelings of stress, worry, anxiety and depression. What important to note is that you want to “combine” these types of foods together and eat them daily because you’ll get a “synergistic” effect, which will make big improvements, quickly. Foods That Reduce Cortisol Cortisol is your body’s primary “stress” hormones. When this goes up, a lot of your positive hormones go down. You get irritated quickly, you have blood sugar highs and lows, and it causes sleep problems and insomnia. Foods that lower cortisol citrus foods that contains high amounts of Vitamin C… such as Papayas, oranges, Kiwi, pineapples and strawberries. Also vegetables such as Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Red bell peppers and Broccoli are also high in Vit. C. Additionally, omega-3 fatty acids are good at reducing cortisol. Salmon, hemp oil, flax seeds walnuts are highest in Omega-3 fatty acids Foods That Increase Dopamine Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in your brain and its associated with the “pleasure system”. The higher your dopamine levels and the better your dopamine receptor sensitivity is, the happier you are… You’re more driven and excited about life. You feel more enjoyment in daily activities. Unfortunately as you age, dopamine levels decrease, as does your “sensitivity” to it. This can lead to memory loss, depression, dementia and Parkinson’s Disease One thing you want to do to increase dopamine, is eat foods high in the amino acid - L-Tyrosine, which is needed to produce dopamine. Foods highest in L-Tyrosine are: Fava beans Duck Chicken Oatmeal, Edamame Dark chocolate Seaweed Wheat germ Additionally, eating foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically the DHA -- helps increase dopamine. As mentioned earlier, fatty fish such as Salmon and also walnuts are the best. Foods That Increase Serotonin Levels Serotonin is sometimes called the “happy hormone”, even though it’s not a hormone. It’s a chemical that helps improve your mood and sleep. It also reduces hunger and sugar cravings. Higher serotonin is also linked to living longer. One of the main types of foods that increases serotonin are our favorite type of foods, which is carbohydrates. Of course, not all carbs are good for you and the insulin/sugar spikes will actually cause mood fluctuations. You want “clean” carbohydrates such as white rice, yams/sweet potatoes and fruit. You can also have small amounts of oatmeal and whole grains. Whole eggs, nuts and seeds are also good. Eat Turkey is good because it contains higher amounts of L-Tryptophan, which helps boost serotonin. And once again, Omega 3 fatty acids also help improve serotonin. So make sure you eat some fatty fish such as salmon and sardines, as well as walnuts. ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

What Is Insomnia ? Insomnia Symptoms
http://serious-fitness-programs.com/weightloss Follow Us On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheSeriousfitness Here are some natural Sleep Aid Supplement Nutriden Advanced Sleep Aid Supplement http://amzn.to/2wd9ptJ Pure Encapsulations http://amzn.to/2gdUtYn If you are watching this video, perhaps you have trouble sleeping and looking for more insight on why it occurs and how to handle it. Stay tuned cause in this video, we are going to mention exactly what insomnia is, what causes it, what are its symptoms, and of course how to treat it. So what is insomnia? Insomnia is basically a difficulty or complete inability to fall asleep or stay asleep for long. Insomnia sufferers are not satisfied with their sleep patterns and may often find themselves experiencing fatigue, low energy, difficulty in concentrating, mood swings, depression and lower performance in school or work. There are actually two types of insomnia: primary and secondary. Primary insomnia is when the person just has trouble falling asleep without a deeper health issue being the trigger. On the other hand, secondary insomnia is when the sufferer experiences sleep problems because of an underlying health condition like asthma, diabetes, depression, body pains, etc. Consuming drugs and alcohol or psychotropic substances can also result in insomnia. Insomnia can also vary depending on how long its last and how often it happens. Based on that, it can either be short-term and last only a few days for example, or last long-term which leads to chronic insomnia cases. The causes are actually many--some are physical whereas others are psychological. For example, a intense stressful event like changing locations or the death of a loved one, can trigger insomnia symptoms. Likewise, environmental discomfort like for example sleeping in a foreign bed in a hot room or noise can also mess up with our ability to sleep. Additionally, some medicines like those who alter mood or help keep cholesterol under control, can also induce insomnia symptoms. In chronic insomnia cases, the causes are mostly chronic anxiety, depression, stress and body pains. Besides failing to fall asleep in time and easily, other symptoms you may experience are sleepiness throughout the day, fatigue, irritability, and problems focusing at work or at school. So what you can do to lessen your insomnia symptoms? Of course the first step is to treat the underlying cause and eliminate all the things that make you struggle to fall asleep. You have to aim to sleep at the same time each day to avoid any naps throughout the day and only use your bedroom for resting at night. You also want to make sure you don’t consume any coffee or chocolate or tea which contains caffeine just before you go to bed. It’s also tempting to think about work or other stressing matters but this is not the right time to do it. If you want to keep your mind happily distracted and relaxed, just read a book. Finally, get yourself comfortable and remove any possible distractions like T.V and laptop or noise and heat. Make sure your bedding and pillow is comfortable and makes you feel at ease so you can have a better night's sleep. And as the say, sweet dreams!

5 Healing Herbs To Beat Insomnia & Get The Best Sleep Ever
Sleep is as essential to human life as breathing and eating. Without proper-sleep, the body just can’t function. During sleep, the body solidifies and consolidates memories. That is smaller chunks of information that we took in during the day transfer to long-term storage at night while our body is at rest. Also, during sleep our bodies grow muscle, synthesize-hormones, repair-tissue, restore and rejuvenate. Most of us have suffered from some form of insomnia from time to time in our lives. The good-news is there are some very effective herbs that can be used to help bring balance back to the body and promote relaxation, allowing the body to heal and self-regulate. 1.Valerian The root of this tall perennial flowering plant is dried and used as a calming agent and sleep-aid. According to numerous studies, valerian may help reduce the amount of time it takes a person to fall-asleep and also help increase the duration and quality of sleep. If you take in capsule-form it is recommended that you take about an hour or so before-bed. The impact should last at-least 6-hours. 2.Lavender Lavender is a woody shrub with a very pleasant aroma and lovely purple flowers. A cup of warm lavender-tea before bed is a great-way to promote relaxation which can help with anxiety, depression, stress and insomnia. In addition to drinking tea, try spraying your pillow with lavender pillow mist or soaking in a hot-bath with a few drops of lavender essential-oil and Epsom-salts. 3.Magnolia Bark Magnolia bark, used extensively in Chinese medicine, is known to reduce cortisol-levels and promote relaxation of both the body and the mind. Not only can this have a positive impact on improving duration and quality of sleep but it can also help reduce the risk of obesity and type-2 diabetes. Italian studies found that magnolia-bark eased anxiety and when bark extract was combined with magnesium it improved sleep, mood, reduced anxiety and depression in menopausal women. It’s best to take this herb before-bed since it promotes rapid drowsiness. 4.Ashwagandha Considered one of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic practice, ashwagandha, native to India, has been used since ancient times for a number of conditions. The plant itself is in the same family as the tomato and has tiny, red, raisin-like fruit. Although the leaves and the fruit of this plant have therapeutic value, it is the root that is most potent. Used commonly by people to strengthen their immune-system after an illness, research published in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine shows that this herb also reduces chronic-stress, by reducing cortisol-levels, without taking away energy. Study participants who took the herb also experienced feeling more relaxed, mentally-calm, had reduced-anxiety, less-depression, and reduced-insomnia. 5.German Chamomile  The tops of these pretty daisy-like flowers have been used to make a calming and soothing tea for hundreds of years. Chamomile is widely regarded as a mild tranquilizer and sleep-inducer. Sedative effects may be due to the flavonoid, apigenin that binds to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain.

[ADVANCED] The Best Binaural Beats for a Deep Sleep (90-Minute Sleep Cycle)
** PLEASE NOTE: If you're new to binaural beats, I highly recommend my "beginner" track: http://bit.ly/binauralbeginner Continue watching this video at your own risk! ** DOWNLOAD this track and all my other binaural beat content here: http://bit.ly/bestbinaural ** NO SOUND? Stereo headphones are REQUIRED! ** DISABLE any filters on your device (DTS, surround enhancers, bass boost, etc) as they will interfere with proper audio playback. By popular demand, here's a longer binaural beat video designed to help you get an even BETTER sleep than the last one! :) This video is designed to help you fall asleep quickly, and sleep as deeply as possible, for one full sleep cycle. Sleep cycles vary in length from person to person, but are generally 90 minutes in length. After that, you can take off your headphones, roll onto your side (or whatever makes you happy) and enjoy an excellent night of natural sleep. I personally can't sleep with headphones for an entire 6-8 hours, but if you really want a super-long track I can make you one... :) Over the course of the night, the first sleep cycle is usually the deepest, with most body repair and release of growth hormone occurring while the brain is in the deep Delta state. To help you get as many of those positive benefits as possible, this track goes all the way down to 0.2 Hz. ** DISCLAIMER: I’m not a doctor or a scientist, just a nerd who loves meditation and experimenting with new things. I test every binaural beat track on myself and make sure I'm happy with the result before I make it public. Ultimately, every person is going to have their own unique experience. Using this track is done at your own risk -- if you start to experience any negative effects, STOP using it!

8 Sleeping Habits KILLING Your Gains!
Pick your program here - http://athleanx.com/x/my-workouts Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW The way you sleep can have a direct impact on the muscle gains you will ultimately see from your workouts. I’m going to show you how 8 popular sleeping habits are possibly interfering with your ability to build muscle and remain injury free. Don’t be embarrassed if you wind up finding out that you are doing at least a few of these. The important thing is that I’m here to help. The first thing that you want to do before you even get into bed is stretch. Now I’m sure you’ve heard that it is not good to do static stretching before working out but do you know why? The reason is twofold. When you stretch before lifting you are interrupting the stored motor patterns that your body has to make movement efficient and memorable. This means, with the new muscle length provided by the stretching your bench press movement will not match up with the one that is stored. This leads to awkward pressing and an increase likelihood of injury. The second thing that occurs is that the increased length disrupts the overlap of muscle fibers and interferes with the strength of contraction. If this happens, you can expect to see a decline in your strength levels and force output at the exact worst time that you would want that to happen, just before your workout. Next, you want to be sure you adjust the sheets at the end of the bed before you even get in it. Why? This is because the tightness of your sheets will directly impact the tightness of your ankles in the long run. When you lay in bed your ankles will be pulled down into plantarflexion because of the sheets that are tucked in to the end of your bed. If you stay in this position for say 8 to 10 hours, you can guarantee that your calves will get tight and your ankle will lose mobility over time. Try squatting with bad ankle mobility and you will quickly see your leg gains go down as you no longer can descend low enough in the squat. The health of your shoulders is paramount to a big upper body. Just ask anyone who has ever injured their shoulder what it meant to their ability to lift and make gains in their chest, arms and back not to mention their delts. The key is to limit the tightness that is likely to happen just by avoiding common but bad sleeping postures. If you lay on your side with your hand under your head, make sure you don’t do this on top of the pillow. You can see instantly how this internally rotates your shoulder and leads to tight posterior shoulder capsules. If you place the hand under the pillow however you can dramatically change the situation and actually help to restore some lost external rotation. The same can happen when you lay on your stomach. Your arms get internally rotated at the shoulder to support your head on the pillow. Even worse however, your low back takes a beating as you compress your lumbar spine and adaptively shorten your lumber paraspinal muscles. This leads to the all too common low back pain. The best way to sleep is either on your back with the sheets loosened at the end of the bed or on your side with your legs straight and a pillow between your knees. Either way, you are minimizing the damage that you are doing to your body for extensive periods of time every night and giving your body a better chance of making pain free gains in the gym. Finally, upon waking make sure you immediately start the rehydration process by drinking two 12-16 ounce glasses of water. You have just gone a long period of time without drinking any water so you will want to get this in you to provide the environment for muscle gains. And of course, never underestimate the value of good sleep. Cortisol will be released by your body the less sleep you get. This will directly counteract the benefits of testosterone and lead to less muscle. Sleep as much as you can. If you are looking for a program that prioritizes muscle recovery as one of the main ways it helps you to build muscle much faster, head to http://athleanx.com and get one of the ATHLEAN-X Training Systems that best suits your goals. Start training like an athlete and start seeing better muscle gains more quickly.
