    Cortisol: The Unexpected Killer

    in Health

    Are you constantly stressed out, even when you shouldn't be?Do you worry about anything and everything going on in your life, big or small?Do you eat quickly, on the run, and under stress? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you are most likely suffering from high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Stress leads to the epidemic known as Adrenal Fatigue (also called adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion). When you secret cortisol on a regular basis, it creates a whole host of problems for your body.
    Years of high levels of cortisol cause serious problems. It will catch up with you, eventually. Experts have known and been telling us for years that somewhere between 80-90% of all diseases are stress related. That is too high a number to ignore the reality. Stress is a killer.
    Cortisol is not the "bad guy," however! It is doing its job by reacting to what you tell it to: threats. The problem is that you are no longer being chased by a hungry tiger in real life, but you are reacting to your daily stresses as if you are.
    Discover in this show the dangers of continual cortisol spikes, why it's such a killer, and leave with some solutions you can implement right now to significantly diminish this very real health danger from your life.
    Learn how to completely restore, nourish, and revitalize your stressed out, burnt out, fried adrenals: join my brand new program CAFE (Correcting Adrenal Fatigue and Exhaustion), a 5 part series which will show you step-by-step, how to handle cortisol spikes and prevent stress-related afflictions that keep you from living the vibrant life you deserve.

    Banish Back Ache Pain With A Dip In The Family Hot Tub

    When back pain is present, getting through the day is next to impossible. Here’s how to banish back pain with a dip in the family hot tub.

    A Comfortable Environment for Strengthening the Back
    One of the most effective strategies for long term relief of chronic back pain is muscle strengthening. A hot tub is the ideal environment to engage in exercise.

    Meditate and Recharge
    When the mind feels anxious or stressed, the body responds with increased cortisol, elevated blood pressure and tightened muscles. Hot tub “meditation” is an easy way to reverse the effects of back pain by helping the mind focus and the body relax.

    Customized Massage
    Massage has been used for centuries to eliminate all kinds of pain. A hot tub has a unique combination of heat, massage and buoyancy in the hot tub that provides instant relief for an ailing back.

    To learn more about the benefits of owning a hot tub, pick up a copy of this free buyer’s guide “How to Avoid Buying the Wrong Hot Tub” Just give us a call 605-334-6659 or visit our website at http://CombinedPoolAndSpa.com

    "I'm So Ashamed of My Body" Tapping with Dawson Church and Karen Donaldson

    in Self Help

    How many times have you said to yourself words such as . . . "I hate my body." "I can't believe I let myself get this fat."  "What is the matter with me?"  "I am so ashamed."  "I feel so stupid."  "I'm such an idiot."  "I'm just a big, fat pig."

    If these words are in your vocabularly, please join me for a special tapping session designed to help you release the guilt and shame often associated with weight gain.  Dawson Church (author of The Genie in Your Genes) and I will discuss how negative emotions do NOT motivate you to lose weight and, in fact, are likely making it harder.  Negative energies can create the fight-or-flight response in our bodies which increases cortisol and adrenaline levels, increasing belly fat.  It's time to forgive yourself so you can heal and move forward and release the weight that is holding you back from the life you deserve.  We'll also be tapping on the negative self-talk that so often shows up in our lives and we'll answer questions about our Naturally Thin You Boot Camp. 

    Karen Donaldson is a registered dietitian, certified personal trainer, an EFT Certified Weight Loss Coach specializing in helping people release the hurts that are holding them back from permanent weight loss. She is also the instructor for the Naturally Thin You Boot Camp and Master Mind programs through EFT Universe.  Find her at excelweightloss.com or email her at excelweightloss@gmail.com.

  • Supporting Adrenal Health and Fatigue with Naturopathic Doctor Holly Lucille

    in Health

    The adrenal glands are essential for multiple functions in your body, such as maintaining blood pressure and cardiovascular levels, slowing the immune system's inflammatory response, and most importantly handling your body's response to stress.

    When adrenal glands begin to fatigue, the fight-or-flight reaction kicks in. When your body become overstressed, adrenal levels and cortisol hormones skyrocket. Pretty soon you've got adrenal fatigue. Over time this may lead to depression, exhaustion and weight gain.

    Today's special guest, renowned naturopathic physician Dr. Holly Lucille says, "Busy modern life is full of stress. Supporting and nourishing the adrenal glands is essential."

    Holly Lucille, ND, RN is a nationally recognized and licensed naturopathic doctor, educator, natural products consultant, and television and radio host.
