Is Insulin Resistance Sabotaging Weight Loss?

Insulin resistance can cause havoc on weight and hormone levels, but it is possible to restore your body to its proper balance.  You do everything “right’, but somehow, those stubborn extra pounds just won’t leave.  And worse, they seem to have shifted to your midsection. What happened to your shape? You can be eating healthy foods and still struggle with weight. For women, it’s easy to blame slowing weight loss on the hormonal shifts that come with age, but these changes are not necessarily due to menopause. Instead, insulin resistance could be the cause. How Does Insulin Affect Your Weight? Let’s start by looking at the role insulin plays in the body. Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas which helps your body to use glucose (sugar) from your food by converting it to energy. A healthy...

You’d Better ‘B-lieve’ you need your B Vitamins!

B vitamins are sometimes called the energy vitamins, since they help put a spring in your step and play an important role in maintaining your energy levels. In fact, they play such a key role that perhaps they should also be called the “Brisk, Bouncy, and Bright” vitamins!  In fact, there are eight different kinds of B vitamins, and each one has its own distinct job. How do B Vitamins Help? These vitamins work as a carefully orchestrated team. Together they play an important role in: Regulating moodsReducing stressImproving cognitive performanceContributing to cardiovascular healthLowering blood pressure Protecting and Absorbing Your B Vitamins A healthy diet should provide adequate amounts of each B vitamin. However, because they’re water-soluble vitamins, they aren’t stored in your body and are eliminated when you pee. That means you must replace them every day. It...

Hyper or Hypothyroidism: Often Misdiagnosed

Your thyroid is your body’s powerhouse. Your energy levels, metabolism, and heart rate are all controlled by this small, butterfly-shaped gland. Without enough thyroid hormone, your mitochondria aren’t able to produce the energy that your cells need for optimum performance. At the other end of the spectrum, your body can go into “overdrive” if it produces too much thyroid hormone. Thyroid Issues are More Common Than you Think With so much at stake with regards to your overall health, maintaining balanced thyroid hormone levels is important. However, one in eight women produce either too much or not enough thyroid hormone. Females are at higher risk for thyroid issues than men, and the risk for both genders increases with age. In fact, the statistics for those with undiagnosed thyroid disease are shocking. Hormonal changes like pregnancy or menopause...

Candida: Like me, it LOVES sugar!

Last year I embarked on a short Candida cleanse (about a month).  I provided information along the way, but I though a more in-depth article might provide more answers.  I do plan on continuing my cleanse, but I’ve decided to wait until it’s a bit warmer; it’s difficult to do any kind of detox cleanse in the winter, especially during one as cold as the one we’ve had!!  White coating on your tongue, mysterious skin rashes, bloating, constipation and you’re always ready to eat something sweet? You could be suffering from Candida overgrowth. What is Candida Albicans? Candida albicans is the most common kind of yeast that co-exists with humans. Under optimal conditions, candida plays a valuable role in our digestive systems, since we need small amounts of candida in our mouths and throughout our digestive system in order...

What’s the Deal with Adult Acne?

Growing numbers of women are dismayed/horrified to discover they didn’t leave acne behind when they finished high school. Yes, it might seem like a cruel joke, but it’s possible to have pimples and wrinkles at the same time. In fact, 54 percent of women over 25 experience some acne. And the numbers are expected to increase, with some skin care experts calling the increase in outbreaks in adult women “an epidemic.” What’s behind the rise in problem pimples? Although we tend to associate acne with the angst-ridden adolescent years, in fact many of the factors that contribute to teenage acne are still at play in older women’s lives. In particular, stress and hormonal fluctuations can wreak havoc on our skin - and many women these days do experience that magical...

Top 10 Tips for Healthy Holidays

Are you enjoying the final stretch of 2018? For many, it’s a fantastic and fun time of the year. Unfortunately, it’s also a difficult period for maintaining healthy habits. Check out my list of the top 10 ways to stay healthy and happy over the holiday season.  Reframe your holiday expectations. Consider this: If you think of the holidays as an exhausting test of your endurance and holiday treats as evil temptations to be resisted with all available willpower, how will your body react? That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but many people come into the clinic at this time of the year showing signs of anxiety and tension. In fact, one study found that 90 percent of adults feel stressed over the...

Is Your Estrogen Is Too High?

Estrogen plays an important role through the course of our reproductive lives and beyond. It regulates our menstrual cycle, strengthens our bones, controls our cholesterol, and much more. When our estrogen levels drop, we experience menopausal symptoms. But even before menopause, varying levels of this vital hormone can wreak havoc. That’s because estrogen requires a delicate balance with other hormones. When that balance is disturbed, we can experience a wide range of frustrating symptoms. This hormonal imbalance often occurs during a particularly busy time of our lives, the period from about age 25 through to menopause. As a result, many women deal with unexplained weight gain, mood swings, and libido problems. A few simple steps may help you restore balanced estrogen levels and feel like yourself...

Food Intolerance: What You Need to Know

You’re careful about your health. You do your best to eat well, and you pay attention to the ways that your diet affects your energy levels. But something seems off. You’re experiencing annoying symptoms that you can’t explain. You’re often gassy and bloated, your skin may not be clear and glowing anymore, you may be ready for a nap after a meal and you wish you could remember where you put your keys. Why does your memory feel so foggy? These issues are frustrating (and often embarrassing). They’re also very common. Many patients come to see me with healthy lifestyles, but are baffled by continuing digestive issues, mysterious rashes, and low energy levels. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to take a good look...
