    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.

    Hormone Harmony how to balance your hormones to Live Your Best Life

    in Health

    SHOW DESCRIPTION:


    Millions of women are struggling with hormone imbalance, an epidemic that is disrupting countless lives during menopause and much earlier in life — a fact that is widely unrecognized. Join me this week as I chat with Dr. Alicia Stanton and she demystifies the subject of natural or bioidentical hormone therapy and debunks the myth that menopause is the primary trigger of midlife symptoms such as: constant fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, forgetfulness, hot flashes, sleep difficulties. You will find out the chief lifestyle triggers of hormonal havoc that are ignored in health care today; why six key hormones — insulin, cortisol, thyroid, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone — must be in balance; how to restore harmony by making practical lifestyle changes that cost little or nothing; and, when necessary, how to get medical help. While aimed mainly at women, this interview will also discuss men and their journey through andropause.


    GUEST BIO:


    Dr. Alicia Stanton is one of the country’s leading experts on women’s health and hormone therapy. Dr. Stanton is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a Diplomate of the Board of Anti-Aging Medicine and an Advanced Fellow in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.

    in Health

    Is Adrenal Exhaustion Causing Your Health Problems? 
    Millions of people suffer from undiagnosed fatigue, depression, food cravings, poor immune function, headaches and other unpleasant symptoms of declining health without knowing why.  In today’s show, our Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, will tell you some fascinating facts about the importance of your adrenal glands. Many unexplained health problems are the result of worn-out adrenal glands. We know that these walnut sized glands above your kidneys release adrenalin and cortisol in response to stress, but they do far more than that.  They produce 50 different hormones and are essential for our energy, stamina, sharp mind and healthy sex drive.  When you suffer from adrenal fatigue, all of the above may be absent or greatly reduced. Join us today and learn how you can restore the health of your adrenal glands and regain your energy.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Jeannette Fletcher Howard of Balance Your Yoga

    in Self Help

    Florham Park, NJ – We can’t be in a state of stress response all the time. When we’re thrust into a stress response, the hormone cortisol surges throughout our body and that chemical reaction can have physical consequences if activated too often, creating and perpetuating the conditions in our bodies that cause disease. But if our body can cause disease, surely it can heal itself as well. Indeed our bodies have natural healing abilities that allow our body, mind and spirit to quickly find balance.


    Jeannette Fletcher Howard is the founder of Balance Your Yoga, an integrated healing practice specializing in helping people find physical and emotional balance. Through the practice of yoga and other energy modalities such as meditation, Reiki and EFT tapping, Balance your Yoga offers clients a comprehensive plan for a vibrant life and radiant health.


    “I look out into the world and I see how much stress everyone is under,” says Jeannette. “I know what it’s doing to our bodies. So I consider myself a healing facilitator. My mission is to help people to heal themselves.”


    As Yoga, Reiki, EFT, and other energy modalities become more popular and mainstream, many people are eager to teach these practices. While each teacher brings something a little different to offer, Jeannette takes a holistic approach, with an eye toward bringing her clients what they need, when they need it.


    “Yoga brought me an awareness of my body and taught me what was possible,” says Jeannette. “Add a bit of meditation, Reiki or EFT tapping and it becomes something more. Clients leave a Reiki or EFT session feeling lighter energetically. They’ve been released from something, but don’t quite know what it is.”
