Exercise

Exercise and physical activity is the path to health and well-being.

exercisePatients can exercise 4-5 times per week. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday workout schedule is optimal. 1-1.5 hours of exercise is optimal.

Lose weight goal: keep the heart rate steady at a 60-65% of highest heart rate. Walking steady on a flat surface for 45-60 minutes straight is optimal. Try and keep the heart rate at 106-116 depending on age. Walk at 3.0-3.3 mph. Fat is the lowest source of energy, so with a low heart rate the body uses fat for energy. As the heart rate increases the body bypasses fat and uses muscle (glycogen) for energy. People think that excessive sweating is burning fat, but in reality sweating is the body cooling itself off and is water weight. The returns back to normal after eating and drinking.

Cardio goal: To strengthen the heart muscle and increase endurance the heart rate can get up to 70-80% of the heart rate. Try and do a 30 minute training session. Patients should only do hard cardio 3x per week maximum. Too much cardio exercise can cause adrenal fatigue. It is very common to get a flat line cortisol from excessive exercise. A flat line cortisol will cause insulin resistance, in which makes it very difficult to lose belly fat. The thyroid can be affected by excessive exercise, when the adrenal glands are stressed or not functioning optimally, the thyroid will not convert T4 into T3 properly (Thyroid Hormone). So the Master Gland (Thyroid) can be compromised, in which will affect the entire endocrine system. The excessive exercise can decrease Hormone production for males and females. Testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, and Estrogens are produced in the adrenal glands; the excessive exercise can decrease hormone production. Professional athletes have the tendency to have very low hormones when they reach the late 30’s and early 40’s. Excessive exercise can have a negative effect on the body!!!

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Excessive exercise and stress will tax the adrenals and hinder its testosterone production.

L3W BHRT program analyzes your saliva test result to determine optimum hormone dosages for your body.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

L3W uses a “low and slow” hormone dose approach, which steadily adjusts the prescription to achieve optimal levels. The L3W system uses small increments based on your responses to maintain this balance.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Some BHRT programs use high doses that produce quick results but do not effectively balance a patient’s system.  Dosing is sometimes done without regard to body composition or weight.

L3W BHRT program analyzes saliva test results, body composition, age, signs and symptoms and any previous dosages.
