Unfortunately, in today’s world, as it has been since the beginning of time, most people add inches to the body as they get older, grow weaker with less muscle tone, and get flabby all over. This age old trend is considered normal and unchangeable. Even young people, starting at about age 25, are concerned with wrinkles, the visible signs of aging. So the question for age management specialists like Dr. Nick Delgado and Dr. Michael Bedics is how to get and keep that perfect body.
Fox News has been reporting on nutrition and how it ultimately affects the body and all aspects of our lives. They are doing this based on the research and experience of doctors, nutritionists, and other practitioners. According to recent surveys, most adults, young and older, still believe that being sick is inevitable, a part of life. The large majority associate a decline in health as a natural part of getting older. Nothing could be farther from the truth. With proper care the human body can last and maintain optimal function as long as there is life.
[sharify]Hormone imbalances are a modern day epidemic; and chances are, you will experience an imbalance at some point in your life. Estrogen and cortisol are two of the most commonly imbalanced hormones in both males and females; both of which cause a range of nasty symptoms and an increased risk for many chronic diseases. Fortunately, you can reverse most estrogen and cortisol imbalances with a combination of simple lifestyle tweaks and dietary supplements, which will be discussed below.
[sharify] Estrogen is a mitogenic hormone which means it stimulates the replication and reproduction of cells. This is a good thing in pregnant women but for the rest of us, wildly replicating cells is dangerous to our health, and it sets the stage for the growth of cancerous tumors. Many people think of estrogen as a female hormone, and although it does play a more dominant role in women’s bodies, men are affected by it too. An estrogen deficiency can cause muscle and bone loss, weight gain, increased heart disease risk, lowered libido and fertility issues in both males and females alike. Too much estrogen (a condition referred to as estrogen dominance) is much more common than too little however, and it can cause a range of undesirable symptoms including hair loss, weight gain, infertility, loss of libido, anxiety, fatigue, PMS, fibroids, autoimmune disorder and certain types of cancer.
[sharify] Cortisol is a natural hormone that the body produces on a regular basis. Unfortunately, too much cortisol, or to little even, can be very dangerous for the body. Running on high levels of cortisol will eventually cause your body to stop making that hormone. Once this happens the body goes into that “fight or flight” mode, and runs on pure adrenaline, which is an even more toxic hormone to constantly live off of.
[sharify] We recently had the privilege to sit down with Dr. James Wilson, author of “Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome”, and discuss with him the causes and effects of adrenal stress. Dr. Wilson has been working for years to “help people, help themselves” by overcoming fatigue, and begin a stress free lifestyle. 80 percent of Dr. Wilson’s patience have struggled with this unbearable problem, which encouraged Wilson to spread the word about how this problem can be solved.
