We do not treat disease. Nor do we offer cures. The book, The Disease Delusion, written by the father of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, clearly outlines why this approach does not work for chronic illness.
Instead we offer a complete systematic approach to uncover the causes of your symptoms, which then finds what you need to support healing of the causes of those symptoms.
We are very effective at helping really sick people get well.
So, if you really want to get better, then you are probably in the right place. It’s a lot of hard work to get there. There are no magic bullets, nor is it common that what worked for someone else will work for you. You are unique, and your path to healing is unique – only for you.
Below is a brief summary of the presentation on this topic. All statements in the summary are referenced in the video presentation by slide #. The presentation uses the scientific journals to help explain what is commonly involved in each topic.
The real question is do you want to get better?
Like a flower, the outward beauty of a woman draws to the inner complexity that makes you uniquely you. Each petal hiding some hidden treasure that leads to some more discovery. All this mystery causes women to look at their health differently. They can’t ignore their ever changing cycles .The cycles, like flowers need tending to.
But women are not that much different than men.
7 weeks after conception the same organs that make you a woman begins to move in a male. The uterus drops down and wraps around the urethra to become the prostrate gland. The ovaries drop down through the inguinal canal into the labia to become the testicles and scrotum. The round ligament gets pulled down by the descending testicle becoming the spermatic cord. The clitoris lengthens to become the penis. 4
Both women and men make the same hormones, and have the same problems for the same reasons.
There are 3 main estrogens. Estrodial nurtures healthy breast and uterus tissues in a cycling woman.Estrone or menopausal estrogen is more toxic causing inflammation in the same organs. Estriol is dominant when a woman is pregnant. 5,6
Progesterone, made only after you ovulate, balances and calms down any storms that your estrogens have created. 7, 8
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) tells the ovaries to get an egg ready to ovulate. 7, 8
Leutinizing Hormone (LH) tells the ovaries to ovulate. 7, 8
Thyroid hormones control about half of your cycle. 33, 34, 36
The health of a woman depends on the balance and interaction of these hormones.
DHEA, from your adrenal gland is converted into both estrogen and progesterone. This remains the primary source of these hormones after menopause. 28
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) tells the ovaries to ripen a follicle to get an egg ready to be released. The ripening follicle starts to produce estrogen. When the estrogen level rises, it causes LH to be released . LH causes ovulation, which in turn causes progesterone to be made. 7, 8
PMS happens when a woman makes too much of the wrong estrogen. She makes estrone instead of Estrodial. This causes inflammation and swelling in the female tissues which can get very uncomfortable. 7
Most fibrocystic problems come from a combination of toxins, toxic estrogens, and a depressed thyroid. 7
Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
PCOS may be more of a toxic response than we have understood. The toxicity shuts down the thyroid and causes inflammation.34, 39, 40 The adrenal gland responds to the inflammation by making cortisol. 28 The cortisol causes your blood sugar to rise by taking the protein out of your muscles to be converted to sugar in your liver. All of this makes the follicle in the ovary fibrotic and unable to release the egg.
The Scary Stuff
One of the common causes of Cancer is toxic estrogens. 45, 50 Estrone is the main culprit. Most prescription Estrogen comes from pregnant horse urine. Horse estrogens are toxic to women. 46, 48 Studies report that Ethinyl Estrodial is about 100 times more potent than your normal estrodial. 50
One Of The Biggest Roots Of All Imbalance
Diet and gut health are the key factors in balancing your hormones. Poor diets cause the bacterial coating of the gut called the flora to change.
Pathogens take over the weakened flora, causing leaky gut, toxic bowel, making you toxic. The toxins overwhelm your liver, making you unable to excrete them properly. As the rising toxins try to escape through the skin and the lungs, your body begins to store them in your fatty tissues. Candida/Leaky Gut
Most of your hormone producing glands are 50% fat. The toxic fats cause your body to make toxic estrone rather than nurturing estrodial. This makes your female tissues become inflamed, much like a fire.
Inflammation causes your adrenal glands to produce more cortisol. The cortisol steals your estrogens to make more cortisol. The cortisol also makes your blood sugar rise. 28
Rising blood sugar causes more inflammation. Insulin rises to put the rising sugar into your cells. Your blood sugar drops with the rising insulin, you get weak and start craving food.
Toxins shut down your thyroid so that you quit burning your calories. 34, 39, 40 This causes that unwanted weight gain that many women struggle with. Then, with the depressed thyroid PMS begins. 7
Our Unique Individual Care Program
We do not treat diseases, practice medicine, or promise cures. Instead, we combine several approaches to help support your body’s weaknesses. In doing so, the body can then strengthen itself to heal. Each person has a program tailored specific to them alone. Many times people in the same household will need an entirely different approach, even if they have what may seem to be the same issues.
All care needs to address the health of all of your body systems, including flora imbalances, damage to the gut wall, the toxins it creates, liver clearance of toxins, food intolerances, autoimmune responses, with thyroid and adrenal dysfunction included.
We use cost-effective natural ways of testing to find out where your individual weaknesses are. We evaluate every body system that you have, find out how all of your systems interact, and what the root cause of the weaknesses found.
Once we find out what the root cause of your weaknesses are, we then use the same testing procedures to find out how to address them. Since you are unique, your individual care program will probably be different from others that you know.
