We can find plenty of information about why we have hormonal imbalances, even more on how to correct it. But what about what happens after you on the road to recovery? Unlike a virus or common illness, hormone imbalance doesn't resolve quickly, and the emotional fallout from both the physical and emotional toll can be devastating. Audrey and I have both dealt with it in our own ways, so we share what's worked for us, why we do not give up hope of resolution, and what it means to be facing medication for the rest of your life.
Hormone imbalance is an epidemic that people face all over the world every single day. The ravaging effects on a person's health can range from unexplained mood swings to severe insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety and panic attacks, low libido, depression, brain fog, and stubborn weight that won't budge, especially around the abdomen.
There are actually dozens of hormones required to help the human body to regulate properly.
Some of these hormones include insulin (blood sugar, from the pancreas), cortisol (the stress hormone, from the adrenals), and leptin (helps to regulate your body to know when its had enough food to eat), the all important thyroid hormone--and so many others.
Suffice it to say, if all focus is placed only on the sex hormones and not on the "every day" hormones, then it stands to reason that health care providers would commonly overlook certain tests to determine these imbalances.
Ironically, correcting imbalances via nutrition and natural means will often have the added benefit of organically balancing the sex hormones without the need to resort to the extreme of hormone replacement therapy.
Is your health care provider overlooking these tests? Or, if you are a practitioner, are you overlooking them for your clients?
Listen in and have your notepad ready as Dr. Ritamarie reveals the three most commonly overlooked tests for evaluating hormone imbalance.
Dr. Ritamarie is hosting a 3 day live conference to train practitioners called Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology (S.H.I.N.E.) and it is an event like no other.
Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology (S.H.I.N.E.)
Hormone imbalance is at the crux of many people's most challenging health issues. The endocrine system is the Master Command center for all of the bodily systems.
And yet, many mainstream approaches miss the mark completely, and tackle the hormone issue first with what should always be the last resort.
A big reason for that is because practitioners are not taught how to systematically look in certain places, order the right tests (hint: it's not all about the sex hormones), and how to treat in an intuitive rather than counter-intuitive manner.
The body has so much healing power in its infinite wisdom. And yet sometimes, the master commend center needs a bit of help getting back on track.
These are the pitfalls of conventional and functional evaluations and approaches:
1- Asking the wrong Questions
2- Incomplete lab testing
3- Not putting the nutritional foundations in place before trying hormone replacement and pharmaceuticals
This important show is for practitioners and public alike. Don't miss it!
Knowing how to correctly assess hormonal imbalances and putting practical protocols in place no longer has to be a mystery.
Dr. Ritamarie is hosting a 3 day live conference to train practitioners to become expert go-to holistic healers who never make these common mistakes again.
It's called Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology (S.H.I.N.E.) and it is an event like no other. If you are a practitioner or you would love to see your favorite holistic practitioner trained to balance the complex endocrine system and restore health quickly, then now is your time to SHINE:

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.
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. She has a special interest in hormone balance and its effects on menopausal symptoms, weight gain, PMS, energy levels and stress. Her experience also translates well to help manage her male patients and their hormonal issues, including low testosterone, adrenal fatigue and low libido. Her practice is dedicated to anti-aging medicine and maintaining optimum health through nutrition, fitness and bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Stanton is the author of Hormone Harmony: How to Balance Insulin, Cortisol, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone to Live Your Best Life

In this interview we will explore the role of adrenaline as the underlying cause of many conditions believed to be incurable: ADHD, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, weight gain, bipolar disorders, PTSD, IBS, addiction, and more.
We will discuss why people put out excessive amounts of this fight-or-flight hormone, even when they are not in danger and learn how to reduce levels of excess adrenaline simply by altering a person’s meal plan along with the proper use of natural progesterone cream.
Join us as we speak to Dr. Michael Platt, internationally known for his for his innovative approach to natural hormone replacement. His previous book, “The Miracle of Bio-identical Hormones,” is still the number one selling hormone book in a number of countries. In 2011, Dr. Platt voluntarily surrendered his license (not his medical degree) because he refused to change his approach to getting patients well naturally.
His latest book Adrenaline Dominance addresses how the standards of care enforced by medical boards prevent progress in medicine.
Something you may have never heard about is that certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, plastics, cosmetics, etc can react with your hormones and make your body store excess abdominal fat. These harmful chemicals are known as xenoestrogens. Excess exposure to these can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. Tune in Wednesday May-20 at 7:Pm for the Rest of the Story.
. Did you know that living from your heart has immediate benefits? It triggers about 1,400 biochemical changes. It shifts your thoughts from negative to positive raising endorphin levels while simultaneously decreasing cortisol levels resulting in stress reduction – which studies prove is the cause of 90% of disease. Anti-aging processes begin, DHEA levels, the life-giving hormone, surges in our bodies. Our immune systems become really strong. We think more clearly. We become less aggressive and more compassionate, appreciative, caring and grateful.
There is a film called The Power of The Heart, our topic for discussion and joining me Baptist de Pahpay, a lawyer turned author and filmmaker. Baptist has traveled around the world to interview the spiritual teachers in the film and book and I most certainly am most grateful to have him here to speak on what I believe is vital to humanity.
On Small Changes Big Shifts the conversation on Women’s Health continues as Dr. Michelle Robin sits down with Dr. James Mirabile, MD, a Board Certified Gynecologist, well respected among patients and colleagues in the Kansas City metro area for his work in obstetrics, gynecology, bio-identical hormone therapy, medical cosmetics and medical weight loss. He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist's.
After delivering over 7,500 babies, Dr. Mirabile retired from Obstetrics and concentrates his areas of expertise in gynecology.
In 2010, Dr. Mirabile added Medi-Weightloss Clinic to his practice helping men and women to achieve their goals of weight loss and overall health.
