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.

Cholesterol

CholesterolGood Cholesterol/Bad Cholesterol

Good Cholesterol is very important to the body. It contributes to the male and female Endocrine system, Immune response, and the Brain. Excessive bad Cholesterol is produced by a higher ratio of sugar vs. insulin in the blood.

30% of Cholesterol forms the precursors to the male sex hormones. If the total Cholesterol in under 150, the body will decrease testosterone hormone production. Signs and symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency’s are: decreased libido, erection dysfunction, depression, increase body fat, decreased bone density, and muscle weakness.

Make sure organic fats and oils are in your diet. Keep the HDL level high.

The “Matrix”

Do we live in the Matrix?cholesterol4

Labcorp just changed its markers for Total Cholesterol to 100-175, with 176 being a pathological high. So the median or optimal level would be 137-138 according to labcorp. In the cardio vasculature fellowships we were taught if a patient has lower than a 145 total cholesterol, the patient should be on some type of Anxiety, depression and brain malfunction medication.

If a total cholesterol of 137-138 is the new optimal target, then expect an increase in Neurological problems (memory, foggy, headaches, thyroid, and brain issues) due to the fact that the brain is mostly Cholesterol and uses healthy Cholesterol for energy.

More hormonal problems (Erectile dysfunction, lack of libido, dryness, vaginal pain, lack of motivation, difficulty getting pregnant, and possibly increase autism in children). Being Cholesterol the pre-cursor to hormones such as Testosterone, Estrogen, progesterone, etc.

Low Cholesterol> Low hormones> lower immune system…

So everyone needs to unplug and enter the real world!!!

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
Daily Food Intake

Daily Food Intake

 

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.
