Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we share how we can make the hormone, cortisol, work for us, despite the bad reputation it has come to carry.
Commonly known as the "stress hormone," it;s produced in part, by the adrenal glands when we're under pressure and perceive a threat. The pituitary gland determines how much hormone the adrenals should release to help us fight or flee.
This alarm system works beautifully -- until it doesn't. Yet, without it we're helpless.
Call into the studio with your questions and or comments: 347-945-7433.
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.
Optimistic behavoiour which enables a human heing to see and acknowledge the clear truth and, even in in the rottenest situation...
Thus an optimist is therefore no clown or other comical figure, rather he/she is a human being who, under the greatest pressure, remains consciously hopeful and happy and who,
in defiance of all pressure, remains consciously hopeful and happy and who, in defaince of all blows, breakdowns and deplorable states of affairs, and so forth,
always retains the upper hand and the sense and the conviction for that which is good and that which is the best...
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.

Common sense might say that you have a good chance of burning more fat in the morning, and there is some evidence to support those theories. For one, your levels of cortisol are higher in the morning, and cortisol is the hormone that helps to metabolize fat into energy. Your body wakes up a fat-burning machine, in other words. In addition, while you are asleep your body uses up the leftover carbohydrates that are still in your system, leaving you with very little except fat reserves for energy in the morning.
According to BodyBuilder.com, there have been several studies conducted that show people can burn up to 20% more fat if they work out in the morning before consuming any food. Sounds primed to go, right? Unfortunately, that’s not the whole story.
