In this show you’ll learn:
A basic understanding of how cortisol works in your body, and what it is perfectly designed to do.
A list of the most common health threats of having too much elevated cortisol over long periods of time.
Some easy solutions you can do right now, as well as when you feel a stress reaction, to mitigate the cortisol spike.
Stress leads to the epidemic known as Adrenal Fatigue (also called adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion). When you secrete 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.
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.
Join Dr. Ritamarie and 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.
Check out Dr. Ritamarie’s VITAL Health Community for additional resources on the role that plants and herbs play on your hormones and digestive health, as well as strategies to include in your daily routines to achieve more vitality.
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.

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.

On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.

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.”
