March 27, 2017

After the age of 30, testosterone levels in men begin to decline at 1.6% per year. But for some men, the decline in testosterone can be a lot more dramatic. Symptoms of low testosterone, such as fatigue, lack of motivation, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and decreased athletic performance, can all appear in a matter of years.

But why does this happen for some men and not others? The slow and steady decline in testicular function is inevitable, but poor d...

When You’re Tired Despite Everything Being “Normal” It Could Be Your Adrenals!

March 11, 2017

It’s becoming increasingly common to hear our patients say that they are tired, having difficulty losing weight, and suffering from insomnia. They go to their allopathic doctors and are told they are just stressed, their thyroid is normal, and they might be depressed. They leave the office frustrated because they know something just isn’t right. Well, there is an often forgotten organ that might be struggling to keep up with our lifestyles – the adrenal glands.

What are the adrenal gl...

Special Event: Let's learn together about adrenal fatigue!

February 24, 2017

Exhausted? Trouble sleeping? Trouble losing weight? The doctor says your thyroid is normal, but you still feel something isn’t quite right? These could be symptoms of adrenal fatigue. In our stressful day to day lives, we often come to rely on the little organs that sit atop our kidneys and make our stress hormone: cortisol.

Unidentified food sensitivities can contribute to many chronic health conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, eczema, chronic ear infections, gut malabsorption, insomnia, autism, ADD/ADHD, and many others. These food sensitivities differ from food allergies (like a peanut allergy, for example) because they cause symptoms to appear gradually. These foods are also not life-threatening. But when ingested, these seemingly healthy foods are recognized as foreign by the immune syst...

Are you ready for 2017? In the last blog of 2016, we looked at how having adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion is not just about the adrenal glands. As more research reveals how connected the adrenal glands are with the pituitary gland (located at the base of the brain) and the hypothalamus (in the brain), this critical system called the HPA axis, is where the focus is on restoring and rebuilding not only adrenal gland health but overall ...
