*Is Your Thyroid Disease Really an Adrenal Disorder?

How Adrenal Disorders Can Disguise Themselves as Thyroid Disease Understanding the Basics of Hypothyroidism According to the American Thyroid Association, hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone and, just like other hormone deficiencies, it can affect almost every aspect of your wellbeing. It can make you feel weak & fatigued, cause unordinary weight gain, and can lead to even more serious health concerns in left untreated.

*In Defense of Fast Weight Loss

Extreme diets get a bad rap — but is it deserved? To keep pounds off for good, you should lose weight slowly over time, right? Not so fast. Adding to a growing body of research on the benefits of quick weight-loss programs, a new study in The Lancet: Diabetes and Endocrinology found that subjects who followed a short, extreme diet were more likely to hit their long-term pound-shedding goals as compared to people who followed a more moderate plan. The study involved 200 obese adults, who took part in a…

*The Importance of Thyroid Supplementation

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THYROID HORMONE, IQ, AND . . . THE SOUL? If the human soul has a molecular structure, it is surely that of thyroxine. Why? Because this hormone, secreted by the thyroid gland, has the primary function of regulating metabolism. Without the stabilizing influence of thyroxine to keep our myriad of molecular systems in balance, we would become a metabolic disaster area, and the essence of who we are would corrode away in the ensuing chemical chaos. Without thyroxine, our minds -- those cornucopias of thought, perception, emotion,…

White fat is used to store energy and produce hormones that are then secreted into the bloodstream. This is typically the kind of fat that you think of when someone says, “You look fat.” Brown fat…

*Could Your Blood Type Be Causing Cognitive Decline and Other Health Issues?

There has been an increased number of studies in recent years on the causes of Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related memory issues. New research published in September 2014 by Neurology now shows that the blood type of an individual may actually increase the risk for developing memory issues in the late stages of life. The study concluded that individuals with the blood type AB (the most uncommon of all blood types) are almost twice as likely to develop cognitive impairment compared to individuals with other blood types. Cognitive decline is…

*The Difference Between Weight Loss and Fat Loss and How Your Hormones Effect Which One You’re Doing

Caloric Weight Loss vs Hormonal Fat Loss   The Conventional Calorie-Cutting Weight Loss Method When you attempt to lighten your load by consuming less calories than you burn, there is no telling whether the weight you lose is coming from fat or muscle. This may be hard to visualize since you increase your activity, eat less and see your number shrinking on the scale. Here is the kicker though, you may be losing weight in the short term but you will probably not see any significant changes in the two…

*New Study Shows That Weight Loss Does Differ Between Men and Women

YES! Believe it or not, there really is inconsistencies in the way males and females diet, lose weight and respond to exercise. These discrepancies come from multiple factors, including biology and behavior. At first glance, men seem to have an advantage but that does not mean that guys have it easy. Regardless of your gender or your weight loss goals, the path to your goal body composition is difficult at best, and can be puzzling for anyone.   The research gathered about these differences brings about hope that the next…
