Hormones in Harmony™

 

 

 

Whether you're entering puberty or exiting the golden years...

...whether you're happy, vital and fit or sad, sick and saggy...

 

HORMONES affect YOU!

 

 

 

As the biochemical interface between the energy of the environment and the matter of your body, hormones affect everything. Your moods, your memory, your metabolism.

Your appearance, your aging, your appetite. Your sleep patterns, your stress response, your sex drive. Everything.

 

We tend to think of "hormones" as sex steroids, but they are so much more. When I refer to hormones, I mean all the body's biochemical messengers—the traditional hormones of the endocrine system, the neurotransmitters of the neurological system and the cytokines of the immune system.

 

All of these natural biochemicals act as hormones affecting everything we do, everything we feel, everything we think.

 

Living in today's fast paced, high stressed world of the interminable electric light and too many manmade carbohydrates creates havoc with our hormones.

 

Think of hormones as the software program of the human computer. Many of us are so Hormonally Challenged—sick, aging, tired, or just plain stressed out—that we need a software update. 

 

 

 

The Endocrine System: How Energy Connects with Matter

 

There are two philosophies of health care in the world. The East believes in Energy, the West believes in Matter. Of course energy and matter exist together.

 

The other day I was illustrating the connection between the body and the environment for a new patient. On my little stick figure person, I placed seven dots.

 

"Those are the chakras!" The patient exclaimed.

 

"Yes, and they're also where the endocrine glands lie."

 

From the gonads in the root to the pineal in the crown, the endocrine glands correspond beautifully with the seven chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning little wheels of energy. Hormones are the interface between the energy of the environment and the matter of your body. The glands that produce the hormones are the power points. East meets West in the endocrine system!

 

Hormones affect everything--our nervous system, our immune system, even digestion and detoxification. These tiny messengers communicate to the DNA within our cells what's happening in the rest of our body as well as in our environment.

 

 

The DMAR Pyramid of Health

 

I developed a philosophy of healing that has served my patients.. Imagine that health is a pyramid. There are four sides on the DMAR™ Pyramid of Health:

 

  the environment,

 

Ø     our anatomy or structure of the body,

 

Ø      the physiology or biochemistry of our system,

 

Ø      Our psycho-spiritual beliefs. What we think becomes. Our thoughts influence our biochemistry which runs the entire system.

 

 

 

 

 

Our Vital Biochemistry

 

 At the top of the biochemical face of the pyramid are the hormones—specifically the neuro-immune-endocrine system.

 

The hormones are bio-chemicals with physical molecular structure, but they also are vibrational. Hormones each have unique vibrations. Hormones literally sing to the DNA and the DNA dances accordingly.

 

Being a hormone specialist, I am very attuned to my own hormones as well as my patients. I can "feel" when hormones are out of balance. Like an internal symphony, each hormone has its own rhythm, its own sound, its own vibration.

 

Years ago, a young woman came to see me. She had been a patient of mine since her adolescence and just six months earlier had a complete physical with me. She had no complaints and when I asked what prompted her visit, she said, "I just need to sit in your vibration and I stay well for about six months."

 

She was describing resonance. How her hormones were attuning to mine. And how vitally important it is that I stay well. My patients remind of this all the time.

 

Healer heal thyself.

 

 

Our Software Programs: The Neuro-Immune-Endocrine System

 

 

As the biochemical interface between the energy of the environment and the matter of your body, hormones affect everything.

 

Your moods, your memory, your metabolism.

Our Three Brains

 

We actually have three brains. Yes, three. One in our head, one in our chest and one in our gut. The heart is really the number one brain. Our ancestors knew this truth and today science is proving that the heart gets first preference of resources for neurotransmitters.

 

Neurotransmitters are the hormones of the nervous system. And they're produced by the gut as well as the heart. Ever been nervous before a big event? While you're brain fusses over possible outcomes, your heart races and your stomach rumbles. Neurotransmitters. In fact, conventional medicine often treats irritable bowel syndrome with antidepressants and everyone knows that you can die of a broken heart (really severe depression means very little serotonin for the heart to function.)

 

You can live without a functional brain (coma) but not without a functional heart. And if your digestive tract cannot absorb nutrients, you'll starve to death without medical intervention.

 

Our Immune System

 

Now let's explore the immune system. You know when you're under a lot of stress and you become sick. You catch a common cold virus or break out in cold sores (the herpes virus). Stress affects the adrenal glands which in turn affects the immune system.

 

In the heart chakra lies the thymus—an endocrine gland responsible for programming the white blood cells to know the difference between you and other. Other what? Germs: viruses, bacteria, fungi, even weird cells like cancer. White blood cells (WBC) attack other and spare you. They do so best when you are asleep. Under the influence of melatonin produced by the pineal gland in the crown chakra the body shuts down normal daytime function and switches into nocturnal mode. The adrenals stop producing the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol and begin to produce metakephalins that stimulate the thymus to program the WBC's. All hormones, all the time!

 

High stress means high adrenalin and cortisol production interfering with sleep and effectively turning off the immune system making you vulnerable to infection and over a very long period of time, cancer.

 

Think of the WBC as the pony express. The WBC can travel anywhere in the body, even pass the blood brain barrier delivering messages called cytokines. Cytokines are the tiniest of the "hormones". These minute messengers instigate the immune response whether that's a breakout of hives in response to an allergen or the attack of an invading virus. The amazing WBC carries on its cell membrane information about all the hormones, all the neurotransmitters, and all the cytokines in the body during its lifetime.

 

The neuro-immune-endocrine system is a massive communication network that makes the global internet look like child's play.

 

So if the neuro-immune-endocrine system is the software for the human computer, what's the operating system?

 

 

Our Operating System: The Hypothalamus

 

In the center of the brain, the hypothalamus lies vastly unappreciated. Part neurological tissue and part endocrine tissue, the hypothalamus is largely ignored by neurologists as a primitive brain structure. Endocrinologists pay it little heed because they cannot measure its hormones without sacrificing the lab animal. But the hypothalamus is crucial to life.

 

The hypothalamus orchestrates the entire symphony of hormones.

 

If the hormones are harmonious, you are healthy, vital, youthful, vibrant.

 

If the hormones are out of harmony, you are sick, tired, aging, stressed, and eventually dis-eased!

 

So to help the Hormonally Challenged, I focus on the maestro—the hypothalamus.

 

 

Balancing Hormones Naturally

 

 

I formulated Sacred Seven® amino acids specifically to balance the hypothalamus.

 

While Genesis Gold® includes the Sacred Seven® amino acids, its full spectrum plant based micronutrient support balances the entire neuro-immune-endocrine system as well as provides support for optimal assimilation of nutrients, detoxification of toxins, and mitochondrial energy production.

 

I keep my Hormones in Harmony™ with Genesis Gold®.

Hi Deborah,

I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for creating your products. I ordered Genesis Gold and Sacred Seven about a month ago and have been able to deal with hot weather and hot workout room conditions without any anxiety attacks and dizziness, since I started last month. We've also had high 80s and 91 degrees in SF for the past few days and I have felt fine all day!

No hot dry flashes at night, except maybe mild ones but only twice a while ago.
Love what the herbs and aminos are doing for my body, thank you!

Mahalo nui loa~
