The year of Lifestyle Medicine

The year of Lifestyle Medicine

This year has proven to be a year of great change,especially for the medical community. The underlying issues faced with health are more than sickness, they are dis-ease, where the body mind and emotions are not at ease. 

Now more than ever a light is shining to make new conscious choices, habits and actions for your health. This requires a clearing out and cleaning of negativity, toxicity and past limiting programming. From food, movement, entertainment and news your lifestyle patterns dictate your behaviors and outcomes. For this to change, you need to change your patterns and behaviors. 

Lifestyle Medicine looks at all of you, your habits, patterns and behaviors. It’s here you can be given a new formula and plan for your health.

Lifestyle Medicine chooses vitamins, minerals, herbs, mindfulness, empathy and the present moment to prescribe health for you.  Health after all is a series of positive choices, habits, actions and non-negotiables.

When you recognize what you are putting into your body, mind and in your environment are not improving your quality of life, you make a decision, a choice.

A decision. 

Lifestyle Medicine is all about empowering people.  When people are empowered you make choices and decisions that are for your good. You take your health and well-being into your own destiny.

Resilience is a by product of Lifestyle Medicine.  When you have the right systems, structures and plan in place you will navigate health with more confidence, greater clarity and more innate wisdom.

Growth is a natural state of life and living supported by the foundation in Lifestyle Medicine. Growth is powerful in increase, expansion and new.  It may begin messy and unknown,  yet once grounded with consistency, growth brings more to life and living.  Lifestyle Medicine maximizes people’s living and life.

How I built my foundation of success doing the opposite.

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your endocrine system is made up of glands found throughout the body. These glands, which produce hormones, send hormones into the bloodstream or into the fluid around cells, and receptors to be distributed among organs and tissues, and “programmed” to respond to the hormones.

Essentially the endocrine system performs many roles that your body is dependent on, such as producing hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood – and along with other functions. The endocrine system physically consists of:

  • Pituitary gland
  • Thyroid gland
  • Parathyroid glands
  • Adrenal glands
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries (females)
  • Testicles (males)

An unhealthy, or unsupported endocrine system result in an assortment of unwanted conditions such as hindered growth and development during puberty, difficulties getting pregnant, problems managing stress, putting on weight easily, having weakened bones or being low on energy because an excess amount of sugar remains in your bloodstream instead of where it should be – moving into cells to be used for energy.

Here are some common signs your endocrine system is not hitting on all cylinders:

  • Insomnia and other sleep issues
  • Dull or puffy skin
  • Depression
  • Low energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Weight gain
  • Heightened fear
  • Anger
  • ADHD

The first step in supporting your Endocrine System is through Nutrition, Vitamins and Minerals. Check out these products below to support your health, body and endocrine system.

  • Vitamin B12 Found in every cell in the body, it is needed for cellular metabolism and energy production.
  • Vitamin D Levels of vitamin D often significantly lower in patients with hypothyroidism, although a direct connection still not determined.
  • Glutamine Our body’s most plentiful amino acid, modest amounts can increase human growth hormone a lot.
  • Iodine An iodine deficiency can thwart the body’s natural detoxification and lead to hypothyroidism.
  • Licorice root Can help the thyroid and adrenal glands for those who have adrenal fatigue (low cortisol).
  • Selenium Helps in the normalization of the thyroid hormone balance.
  • Zinc Contributes to immune modulation.
