What’s the Best Fast For PCOS?

2021-11-24T06:22:07+00:00Health|

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects up to 10% of U.S. women of childbearing age. That's about 5 million women, which makes PCOS one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS tend to produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones, like testosterone. This hormone imbalance can cause irregular periods, infertility, polycystic ovaries, acne and excess facial and body hair. While the exact cause of PCOS isn’t known, there are three factors that influence PCOS: Insulin resistance—this I believe is the root cause of PCOS, I talk about why below. Inflammation  Toxicity   Insulin resistance & PCOS Insulin is the hormone produced in the pancreas that allows cells to use sugar

Intermittent Fasting and Fertility: What you need to know

2021-04-21T16:07:20+00:00Health|

The New York Times recently published an article titled The Everyday Chemicals That Might Be Leading Us to Our Extinction, describing “How Our Modern World Is Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, Threatening Sperm Counts, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race”.  I decided it was time to discuss the topic of infertility, as I receive emails daily from women struggling with infertility and wondering if fasting may help. The short answer is yes, but let’s talk about the two root causes of infertility first.  Underlying fertility are two key issues, insulin resistance and toxicity...and this applies to both men and women.  Insulin resistance If you are a male suffering from insulin resistance, intermittent fasting and simple ketogenic,

5 Steps to Manage Menopause Naturally 

2021-04-13T00:07:29+00:00Health|

Menopausal hormones  First, let’s talk about what actually happens to women during menopause, because this is an often misunderstood time in women’s lives. As women approach midlife, sex hormone production slowly begins to decline over the course of 10-15 years, aka menopause!  During this process, ovaries hand over the job of making sex hormones progesterone, estrogen and testosterone to your adrenal glands. If you are like most women I know, your adrenals might already be taxed with everyday stress, family, work obligations, etc. When the added work of making hormones is given to adrenals, it often leads to a sudden onset of unpleasant symptoms—low energy, weight gain, hot flashes, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, anxiety and depression.  The decline in estrogen

Can fasting help you with hot flashes?

2021-04-06T16:13:54+00:00Health|

After the age of 40, women’s estrogen begins to decline. Unfortunately this doesn’t usually happen in a steady, calm way, but often what feels more like a wild roller coaster ride! First let's talk about why we have hot flashes. The decline in estrogen triggers the hypothalamus in the brain, which believes it needs to heat the body up, raising your body temperature and creating what feels like a “hot flash”. The good news is there are many ways to manage hot flashes naturally. Three types of Estrogen 3 Types of estrogen Women have 3 types of estrogen, two are helpful estrogens and one is a harmful, cancer causing estrogen. So women approaching or going through menopause will want

Which fast should you do to lose weight?

2021-04-01T21:23:12+00:00Health|

Weight loss is not the result of successful calorie-counting. If it was, we would have solved obesity years ago. Nevertheless many people get caught up in this “calorie in, calorie out” myth, which inevitably leads to frustration and only short term results. The truth is...weight gain is the result of an imbalance in these two hormones: insulin and leptin. Without fixing these two hormones, weight loss efforts will be fleeting. So how do you fix leptin and insulin?  INSULIN Insulin in your fat storing hormone. When insulin isn’t able to manage sugar intake (aka glucose), the body resorts to storing sugar in fat tissue.  Insulin resistance is created over time. It’s an accumulation of years of inflammation in the
