What’s the best fast for PCOS?

2021-04-24T03:20:17+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

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

Can fasting help with anxiety?

2021-03-29T15:14:00+00:00Health|

Have you ever considered where anxiety comes from inside the body? Well, there is a part of the midbrain called the amygdala and the job of the amygdala is to keep you safe. It’s always on the lookout for danger. When it perceives danger or a stressful situation—whether valid or not—it triggers a “fight, flight or freeze” response.  The thing is, we can often get locked into this constant state of reactivity, where the amygdala gets stuck in perceived danger, usually based on past events. I often refer to this as having an “amygdala brain”. It can feel like no matter what you do, you’re stuck in a feeling of stress and anxiety. While the amygdala sends information to

Should I fast if I don’t have a cycle?

2021-03-25T19:08:41+00:00Health|

Should you fast if you don’t have a cycle? The short answer is yes! In fact, fasting may be the healing tool that energizes your cycle. Fasting has the ability to bring the body into homeostasis and balance, allowing to naturally regulate sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. The key is understanding how to use fasting to help your cycle. Women can lose their cycle for a variety of reasons. Women may be on birth control, have had a hysterectomy, are in the perimenopausal, menopausal or postmenopausal stage of life, or have a condition such as PCOS.  However, many women aren't sure why they don’t have a cycle. In these cases, I recommend doing a Dutch Hormone Test. The

Which types of fasting boost your immune system?

2021-03-08T17:59:01+00:00Health|

Studies show that fasting has incredible benefits—increasing mood, energy, mental clarity, weight loss, lowering inflammation, and boosting the immune system, helping it better defend against pathogens, viruses and bacteria.  There are three steps you’ll want to take to create this heightened immune response.  Step 1: Become Metabolically Flexible The first step to boosting your immune system is becoming metabolically flexible, this means you can easily go in and out of being a fat-burner and a sugar-burner. Metabolic flexibility has been shown by science as a valid approach to “dampening” the COVID-19 virus. Yet only 12% of American adults are metabolically healthy! How does metabolic flexibility help defend against viruses? Viruses do not have their own metabolism. This means that

Will intermittent fasting slow your metabolism?

2021-03-04T19:02:26+00:00Health|

A question I get all the time is, "won't intermittent fasting slow down my metabolism?" One of the most common mistakes I see fasters make is repeating the same fast over and over. Here’s what usually happens—when you first adopt a fasting lifestyle, you’ll likely see immediate positive results, you may start dropping weight, find an increase in your energy, focus and mental clarity. All great things. You get so excited about these results that you decide to continue intermittent fasting day after day. Then suddenly you realize you’re not seeing the same results. Maybe you’re even starting to gain weight.  Repetitive Intermittent Fasting and Metabolism Here’s what happened: repetitive intermittent fasting slowed down your metabolism.  Think of it
