Vitamin D

Vitamin DVitamin D is not a vitamin but instead is a powerful steroidal hormone. Its active form enhances immune cells’ creation of antimicrobial proteins.

The ideal levels in your body should be above 50 ng/ml with an optimal level of 70-80 ng/ml. Sunlight and supplementation are the only significant sources of vitamin D.

Vitamin D deficiency is a significant factor in several conditions that affect a high population in the world:

  • Chronic low back pain, which may be associated with osteomalacia (i.e., softening of the bones due to a lack of vitamin D).
  • Cancer; people living at higher latitudes (e.g., Canada, northern U.S., etc.) have a greater risk of dying from colon cancer than people who live closer to the equator and experienced greater sun exposure. A 2006 review article notes that the majority of studies examining the relationship between vitamin D status and cancer risk show that sufficient vitamin D levels do indeed reduce the risk of cancer and that supplementation is an affordable way to reduce cancer incidence and cancer-related deaths. Vitamin D deficiency may be associated with the following cancers: colorectal, cervical, breast and prostate.
  • Risk of heart disease and hypertension have also been associated with vitamin D deficiency.

 

Get direct sunlight on your body for 15-20 maximum, and then apply the sunscreen. The sunscreen does not allow the Vitamin D to absorb in the body.

Stress

stressStress causes the whole body to function poorly, it causes an inflammatory response in the body, and all systems either over work and or under perform.

Adrenal Glands

The adrenal glands respond to stress by releasing cortisol, and adrenaline; the continuedover use of the adrenals causes a condition called “adrenal fatigue”. Adrenal fatigue decreases, causes thyroid and hormonal function to decline. Fatigue, muscle weakness, wake up tired, irritability, decreased sexual function, anxiety, and depression are signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Breathing techniques, hobbies, stress management courses, exercise, sleep, supplementing the adrenals, brain and thyroid help correct stress related conditions. The L3W program helps the body run more efficiently, which will help combat physiological, neurogenic and emotional stress.

There is no one organ/gland that works alone…Stress also affects the Gut>Brain>Immune system train.  These all work together, when excessive stress is forced on the body. The brain will start to have dysfunction due to psychological components and pathophysiological components. The brain will crave sugar and other substances to deal with the stress. In turn, the poor food choices will inflame the gut. When the gut is inflamed, the immune system starts to fail. The body goes into a vicious cycle until it fails and the patient gets sick.

Stress is definitely the hardest thing to correct on a patient. There is no adjustment or pill to help money problems, sickness, marital problems, work issues and family problems. Each individual has to try and construct their own stress dissolver. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Xenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens (literally “foreign estrogen”) are man-made compounds that mimic the effects of natural estrogens in the body. Excessive levels of the hormone estrogen, also known as estrogen dominance, are associated with many health problems. Xenoestrogens are believed to be a major contributing factor to many cases of estrogen dominance.

Avoiding xenoestrogens is an important step towards reducing the many symptoms and health problems associated with excessive estrogen levels, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, PMS, PCOS, and infertility/impotency. It is especially important for pregnant and lactating women, children and teenagers, and those with estrogen-sensitive diseases to reduce exposure to xenoestrogens. Unfortunately, xenoestrogens occur in thousands of everyday items, including everything from food to cosmetics and household cleaners.

Chemical Pesticides

DDT persists in the human body for decades, where it is stored in fatty tissue such as breasts. Women with detectable levels of DDT in their breast tissue are five times more likely to develop breast cancer than women without detectable DDT levels.

It’s estimated that the average American consumes over one pound of pesticides per year.

How to Avoid Them

  • Eat organic foods as often as possible… apples and strawberries have the most pesticides.
  • Use natural pest control in your home and garden
  • Avoid synthetic flea shampoos, flea collars, and flea pesticides for your pets and home

Meat, Dairy, and Eggs

The growth hormones fed to cattle, pigs, poultry, and other livestock are another major source of xenoestrogens, and high consumption of conventionally raised dairy products is especially associated with high estrogen levels, due to the combination of naturally and artificially occurring hormones in the milk.

How to Avoid Them

  • Choose organic meat, eggs, and dairy products
  • Better yet, choose 100%grassfed meat and dairy products, and pastured pork and poultry

Cosmetics and Toiletries

Unfortunately, one of the most effective ways to absorb xenoestragens is through skin contact. Xenoestrogens absorbed by the skin are ten times more potent than those taken orally, because they travel directly to the tissues instead of passing through the liver.

Many types of cosmetics, toothpastes, soaps, nail polish, body lotions, shampoos and sun screens are a source of Xenoestrogens

How to Avoid Them

Find organic companies that make these products without the Xenoestrogen component.

Estrogen Dominance

estrogen_dominanceEstrogen dominance is a growing health concern for people around the world. Although it is more common in women than men, it can also affect men, causing such problems as infertility, erectile dysfunction, enlarged prostate and certain types of cancer.

Estrogen is naturally produced by the male body in small amounts. Estrogen dominance is a hormone imbalance that occurs when levels of the hormone estrogen are too high in relation to other hormones in the body. It can be caused either by excessive production of estrogen, or an over dose of testosterone therapy. Too much testosterone causes the body to “Aromatize” which increases estrogen. An estrogen blocker is very important in Bio-identical hormone therapy for a man, so estrogen dominance does not appear.

Although estrogen dominance in men is most commonly caused by factors such as obesity, alcoholism, or exposure to a form of environmental estrogen called xenoestrogens, it can be caused by a number of medical problems. If you suspect you may have estrogen dominance, contact a L3W provider. A long term problem can turn into Prostate or Testicular cancer.

Symptoms of Excessive Estrogen in Men

The symptoms of estrogen dominance in men include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Impotency/erectile dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Gynecomastia, or “man boobs”
  • Weight gain (mostly belly fat)
  • Enlarged prostate

Xenoestrogens increase estrogen in the body, which is found in everyday house hold chemicals and our food source. The following post will include where xenoestrogens exist and how to combat increasing bad estrogen.

Fat cells are considered an organ itself which increases estrogens (Belly fat is a good indicator there is an increase in estrogen). It is very important to reduce stored fat in the body. Go to a L3W provider to improve organ and gland function. And reduce fat retention!!!

Testosterone Levels

testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone that is produced by the body. In men, it is mostly produced in the testicles but is also produced in the adrenal glands. It is responsible for stimulating sperm production and sex drive, as well as building muscles and bone mass. As men age, its production decreases. When production drastically drops or ceases, a range of symptoms and complications can occur. Signs of low testosterone (low T) are often subtle and are mistaken as a natural part of aging. Decrease of focus, sex drive, strength, endurance, drive, belly fat and feeling less worth.

Testosterone therapy is good, but L3W feels the body needs to become optimal first to produce the most hormones before incorporating a low dose of either HCG or Testosterone as a daily regimen.

The body needs the proper food program for the individual to optimize the hormone level, and the organs and glands associated with Testosterone may need attention (Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Testicles, and Adrenal glands).

Cholesterol is the precursor to most of the body’s hormones which includes Testosterone. Low fat diets,  Statin drugs (cholesterol lowering medicines), and Insulin surges from unbalanced food programs will decrease the amount of Testosterone the body produces.

L3W recommends you eat for your biochemical type to reduce insulin surges, and increase your healthy fat in which should increase hormone production. Supplement the organs and glands that need attention to produce more hormones.

If your doctor prescribes you a testosterone replacement regimen, your body needs an Estrogen blocker to counter act the testosterone, and we recommend a low dose of HCG along with the Testosterone; the HCG stimulates the testicles to initiate natural testosterone production and stop testicle shrinkage.

Seek out an L3W provider to get your blood and saliva tested, if you are having any signs and symptoms of low T.
