Our DNA is not our destiny!
We now know that we can affect the expression of an inherited gene—and therefore whether we get a chronic disease, or not—by our lifestyle choices. Even chronic diseases that run in the family or genes that may have been inherited are only a predictor, not a certainty. Lifestyle choices talk to your genes, and the choices you make throughout life can determine whether your disease-carrying genes get turned on or turned off.
Chronic diseases related to aging.
By age 65, 80 percent of the population will have one or more of the following chronic diseases of aging:
Stress may be inevitable, but the damage from stress doesn’t have to be! Mostly everyone in our fast-paced, technology-driven, multitasking world lives with some level of acute or chronic stress.
Did you know?
Every day a million Americans miss work due to stress-related issues.
The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and secrete cortisol, sometimes known as the stress hormone, and DHEA. Even though the adrenals are the size of a sugar cube, and weigh as much as 3-4 paper clips, they can dramatically affect how we feel.
Stress and the stress hormones from the adrenal glands have far-reaching effects on health, but in this blog, we will specifically be discussing how stress affects hormone balance in women.
Dr. Gold explains the three stages of stress
In the alarm stage, your cortisol and DHEA levels are high. You identify yourself as being stressed, but you are up, doing too much, you may feel jazzed, even anxious, and have trouble sleeping. If the stress is short lived, you bounce back and recovery.
Hormones are messengers. They are secreted by glands, they travel to receptors on various organs and tell the cells in the organs what to do. Hormonal health is about these messages that our body receives.
More importantly, hormones control how we experience our reality. They tell us to eat or stop eating, to sleep or stay awake, to gain weight, or not, and where to gain it. They control if we feel tired or energetic. They affect our moods, so they affect whether we are calm or anxious, depressed or happy.
Hormones dramatically affect our bodies, our health, and our happiness too. As any woman can tell you, hormonal imbalance can make us feel pretty miserable!
This is the first of a three-part series on hormonal health for women. In this first blog, we’ll discuss the signs and symptoms of female hormone imbalance, which hormones are involved, and treatment strategies to restore balance.
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a significant and growing global health concern. Accounting for 7.5 million deaths annually, hypertension is the leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and premature death. The number of individuals with hypertension is expected to increase in the coming years and is predicted to reach 1.56 billion adults worldwide by 2025. Hypertension is the leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and premature death globally.
What is hypertension?
Hypertension is a common condition in which blood flows through blood vessels and arteries with greater than normal pressure. While normal blood pressure is defined as systolic blood pressure less than 120 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure less than 80 mm Hg, hypertension is characterized by systolic blood pressure greater than 130 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure greater than 80 mmHg. The American Heart Association outlines the following blood pressure ranges:
Are you looking for ways to get naturally younger-looking, clear skin? The following dietary supplements and vitamins have been scientifically proven to help clear up clogged pores, boost radiance, calm inflammation, reduce imperfections, and even slow down signs of aging. Read on to find out which nutrients and vitamins that skin of yours may be screaming out for, and what you can do to get naturally luminous skin.
The connection between your skin health & your diet
People are often quick to credit enviably clear complexions to great genes or potent products, but naturally bright skin often starts with diet choices. You’re probably aware that some of your habits affect your skin — things like whether you wash your face daily or whether you wear SPF regularly, but more and more research shows a strong connection between the nutrients you are getting and your complexion.

Blood sugar (aka glucose) has an important chaperone in the body known as insulin. This powerful hormone helps usher glucose into the cells where it can be used for energy. Without insulin, cells would not have access to this vital fuel source. After a meal, the digestive system turns food into glucose. Glucose is sent into the bloodstream causing blood sugar levels to rise.
To control and balance these blood sugar levels, the pancreas produces insulin. Insulin then guides some of the glucose into cells that need it and stores the rest for later. It’s a pretty good system when it’s working properly.
What is insulin resistance?
Have you heard of tapping? or EFT? Some claim that tapping is a powerful technique which can be used for moving through emotional blocks.
The technique is so powerful that it has been used with genocide victims in Rwanda and Bosnia, for disaster victims in Haiti and is used by a trainer of the British Special Forces in the Congo and with U.S. soldiers returning with PTSD panic attacks from the battlefield.
Using 9 acupressure points this easy, simple, precise pattern has been proven to help people overcome many things. It acts in much the same way as a virus in a computer program by permanently interrupting the “program” or sequence of events that occur in the brain between the initial sighting of the thing you are afraid of and the physical response you experience.
Many our one’s past hurts get stored in the mind and even in the body—affecting all their future actions and decisions.
For many people in my training, getting past their “past” is difficult, painful, and—until the last decade or so—very difficult, particularly if they have experienced violence, trauma, or abuse early in life.
Tapping Therapy stimulates the body’s own ability to release stored pain of any kind. The results are nothing short of miraculous.
We offer a state of the art scan to help identify the most pressing emotion to tap away. Simply schedule your tapping scan today (click to schedule) and watch how easy it is to heal. If you do not a hand cradle you can purchase one here. You can also call and have a consult without a cradle. After a brief conversation the practitioner will send you a report and instructions to help you get started.
